I would love to see you enter!

You are very welcome and I have let the benefactor know how much you all appreciate the prizes.
Prince Imdol wrote:If Sava enters, we're finished. Jk. Hope you enter Tony!
Question: Can we make a separate gallery that shows the progression of the battle for others to view?
Also: Is Flickr ok?
Please reread the Sticky on Contest Courtesy. Complaining when high-profile builders enter is one of my major pet-peeves. It doesn't matter if you write "JK" afterwards or not. I believe it creates a hostile environment.
As for seperate galleries and using Flickr. I could care less where you host your pics or what you have in other galleries. As long as the pics you submit follow the rules...I am happy.
Thanks so much for hosting this again Josh!!! Now only if I have time...
Oh dumb senior project...
Chris, its my pleasure and I'm glad you're excited!
Can't you work a Lego battle scene into your senior project? I'm sure it would stand out!

The only restriction is how many pieces and figs you have. But remember, "big" doesn't equal "best".

Thank you and I have passed on that big thank you! In fact, I also sent them the link to the contest, so that they can follow along, if they so choose.

Thank you! For some reason, "another year of BC" cracked me up...
Black Ranger wrote:And one question: Is their a maxium soze to our battlefiled? Or is it how many pieces ya got? Thanks,
P.S. Is a little buid up story allowed? Like: Factions, Area?
No maximum size limit. Also backstories are highly encouraged. Don't make it a novel, but I do like backstories. One paragraph or so and I'll probably take the time to read it....
lego fanatic wrote:Hello i just have one question the entry i am planning to build will require minifigs to be in the air and i have a very small collection of clear pieces so would i be aloud to use thread in my entry?
I will make an exception and allow string for suspension purposes. It doesn't even have to be official Lego string! (See...I'm easy!

I am still busy dismantling the mocs from CCCV and now this! Uff, besides I am very bad in building battle scenes, but the I may try my best shot, even if I have no idea what to build
Tell the donator many many many many thanks for the prizes!
I totally understand. I still have some stuff "built" (its been quarried for pieces) from Brickfest '07. Don't worry about "being bad" at Battles. That is what contest are for. They encourage us to broaden our horizons...
I'll probably enter, if extreme gore is alright...
Gore is not disallowed. However, I am not a fan of gore for gore sake. It needs to make your creation better. If I feel that the battle is merely a vehicle for Lego gore, your battle will not be scored well.

You're welcome and I would love to see a scene like you describe. In the past, there have only been a handful of entries that included a whole castle.
Prince Imdol wrote:Question: Are we aloud to do historical battles in this?
Okay, I'm really sorry to have to harp on this, but I want to nip it in the bud. Reread the rules several times, please. Then please reread the courtesy sticky carefully. Pay close attention to the 1st paragraph. Read it several times. I wrote most of it and it is a subject that I feel strongly about. I will be treating those courtesy guidelines almost like additional rules.
All that said, here is your answer. Its a Battles Contest. The rules state that medieval battles are what you are supposed to build. So, naturally, historical battles are allowed.
