This is packed with action, can't wait to dig into more of the details and the story!

I'm really liking the feel of knights versus magical beasts you got going on. I like how you got the stone coming out from the walls and fading into the grass of the glade giving the landscape texture and depth. Maybe using a few smaller gray, brown, green, etc. plates (1x1, 1x2) around the larger ones would have given that transition a more natural feel though.

I like the variety of all of your magical characters, but it's a bit too chaotic for me (though maybe that's the point?)

I struggle to be able to pick out any one part of this conflict as the "main focus". I think it might have been better served to focus on 1-2 "boss" bad guys for your troops to fight.

Great figs and lots of neat ideas for magical critters and creatures for future builds. Thanks for sharing! :D

Thanks for all the comments :) I probably should've replied to them sooner, but here goes:

Owen: you are completely right. I should get more of those parts.

Brickster: yes, chaos! Waagh! :orc: I wanted to create some sort of 'desperate last stand' feel by putting very unlikely allies together in the magical army. Makes the threat of the invasion feel more real, imo. Looking back, I think I should've put the Trogdor on some kind of pedestal in the middle of the battlefield to serve as a point of focus. If you want closer pictures of some of the creatures don't hesitate to ask.
