Ok guys this topic has been disscused in various ways in vairous threads but i have seen no one thread where this is disscused exclusivly. So her it goes,
I would like to open a disscussion on how you build your collection an what sets you use and why. Heres the thing, i know some people here have been building and collecting for years, in some case's decades! I am recently coming out of my " dark ages" an have since gotten into castle. Now i have used the kingdoms joust, helms deep, etc as bases to my colection. But what are some other sets?
I know Sschmidt recomends Chima as good castle builders, but why schmidt? What are the sets you have gotten an why do the work? I look at the chima sets and just dont see any good pieces, or any in the right color that i can justify spending the money for a set.
Bruce, i know you say to budget for one midsized kit a month an before we know it the collection will be growing. But what is considered a midsized kit? A $20, $30, $40 set, or a $60-100 set?
I also use bricklink quite regularly, but limit it to parts i need an not what I want. If I got what I wanted then I would deffinitly be spending way to much every month. To the master builders out there, what are your favorite sets to buy for castle mocs an why? Whats your favorite sets to get rock work from?
I know lots of questions but this is a disscusion so lets get the ball rolling!
