Hey folks,

 

Feels like forever since I've made a thing. However, that hasn't stopped me from preparing for Brickfair Virginia this year. This year will feature 120 Ankorans vs. 130 Altrairian Orcs. Of course, this does not factor in any unique figures that will be on both sides or the one cameo figure. No need to guess who that figure is, it's Tom Drake. Honestly, he's a regular as far as yearly builds go, and one of the few figures that would seamlessly blend in with the other Ankoran soldiers. 

 

So far, here's the layout!

I still have some terrain layering that needs to be done, which will probably happen tomorrow. During the month of July, I'll be working on a temple on one side of the battlefield. It'll look broken up, but should be pretty nice when a ton of decorations are added. Oh, and there will be plenty of blood! 

 

So yeah...

 

That's all for now. I am aiming to have the other baseplates layered tomorrow.

Terrain and wall update!

 

Still missing tiles for the wall, but other than that, the wall is basically done. Additional decorations are on their way, and work on the temple grounds commences next week.

Liking the terrain and walls. Gunna have to make my terrain uneven for my North Africa diorama at some point.

Are you buying all new parts and minifigs for every one of these displays that you make?

 

If so...damn dude, what do you do for a living - blackmail millionaires? :P

At least half of the minifigs are brand new (130). Most parts are reused from previous builds except for the baseplates, some dark tan plates, and most of the light bley.

DoD work keeps me well supplied! :)

The ruined temple is what I'm currently most excited about, love the detail you're putting into it!  Those irregularities in the wall really sell the impression, "hey, these walls have seen better days." 

 

So glad you're continuing this tradition for your local con, your passion and commitment to the craft are an inspiration to us all.
