Well, hello everyone.

I made the mistake of mentioning that I collect castle minifigs in my bricklink "about me" page, and was promptly approached by some shady asian guy in the bricklink chat... and he told me I should register here, even though I protested that I can't offer much in the ways of building or other contributions and mostly lurk in the shadows. So I hope you are happy now, JP. :P

Well then, I suppose this is the part where I spill some information about myself - I'm currently 23 years old and have recently rediscovered my love of Lego. I live in Southern Germany, about 10 minutes away from the Lake of Constance. Generally, I'd describe myself as nice and laid-back (sounds better than lazy, eh?) kinda guy.
I grew up with the bricks, and originally I was mostly interested in the space sets - M-Tron, Blacktron II, Ice Planet, that kind of stuff. Castle came in second in numbers - I really never had much love for the themes that had to do with reality. About 10 years ago, I finally lost interest, and only gained it back a few months ago. While the newest Space incarnation was kinda 'meh' to me, Castle totally blew me away with the new Fantasy theme - armies of orcs and skeletons were just too awesome for me to pass up. So here I am again, playing with little plastic figures.

As I'm not much of a builder (and because my part supply is totally outdated and limited), I mainly focus on armybuilding. As I said, I'm mostly interested in the new 'Fantasy Era' Castle line, although I'm also willing to recruit my plastic minions from older themes that blend in well enough with the visuals. Currently I have about 20 Trolls, 45 Skeletons, and 30-ish Crown Knights and their allies. Plus all of my old parts, and I'm sure my collection will grow even more...

And that's it for now. Cya!

Hey Stahlregen,

Welcome to CC! We've got our spies on all of the different boards and are plotting to completely take over the Legoverse. Your armies are a welcome addition to our horde. :)
