34 pieces? For an impulse? That's a LOT. The last 5 castle impulse sets (not counting minifigs) according to Bricklink had:

Good Wizard - 11 pieces
The Knight - 17 pieces
Troll Warrior - 15 pieces
Court Jester - 18 pieces
Wizard - 14 pieces

But hey, it's your contest.

:wink:

Looks like fun little contest. I may have to get my rear in gear and enter. Also secret prizes always intrigue me. ;)

15 pieces unless bits of paper count as pieces in which case add 2, if pieces of paperclip count plus another and if sculpey counts +1(hopefully scotch tape doesn't count or i'm over the limit)
(yeah i know I missed a few spots on the torso)

How does the minifigure and its accessories (cape, armour, weapons, etc.) count toward the total piece count?

if the headgear and cape are on the minifig it doesn't count as a part, the rest of his armour weapons will count as parts
