Is 24x40 ok? That's a total of 960 squarestuds (ok that sounds weird) as opposed to 1024 from 32x32..

Well...........Yeah, I suppose so. Really, the only reason I have the restriction is so that people try harder to increase the quality of the creation. I am considering removing that rule next year.

Certainly. I must remember to add that to the rules.

Great job to everybody that has entered so far. There are some truely great creations here. I hope that we get twice as many before the deadline.

Deeplink One


Deeplink Two


Deeplink Three


Deeplink Four

Oh well, you got to admit that the red velvet is classy at least ;)

Very interesting Maedhros. A question if I may? How big, roughly, should a minifigure be in comparison to the creation? I'm asking in order to get a better understanding of the creation, so, when the time comes, I will judge it better.

Dan :wink:

Well, it would be tiny :P Think of the bridge as 15 studs wide or so..

DARKspawn, that Micro Fortress is fantastic. I think I even like it better than some of your fig scale stuff.
