Now I got to come up with something even better than THAT.

Thanks for all the nice comments Erik and Hordesman, I really appreciate it. They're something I made in a break from studying :D .

-Erikut, don't give up, the more entries, the more difficult it will get for the mods to grade all the stuff.

-The Hordesman, the horse and bishop are completely my idea (I don't even play Warhammer, too expensive for me, but my brother does WH40K). I just thought it would be cool to have a horse reering, so I quickly sought all my parts together and made the knight.
The bishop's lettres and parchments are supposed to be verses out of the bible :wink: . The keys are just to make things more impressive, just as the skull :) .

very nice horse Sir Drake. i had thought about doing one of those but couldnt figure out how to make it go on its hind legs, so i built it out of blocks. ingenious idea on your part

If you don't want to be disqualified, you have to reduce the pics to 600 x 800 ...

The Evils:

WITHDRAWN

Let me know what you think!

Edit: Oops! I am withdrawing my evil army entry. I forgot about Yaron's entry and mine is VERY similar to his. So, mine is withdrawn. Sorry, Yaron, didn't mean to copy you. :cry:

OH!! That is REALLY cool!! The forestmen may have one of the coolest castles ever! I like your bishops (monks?) too... including their green goblets. That is SWEET!

Thanks, Nathan, glad you like it! The goblets I got from someone in Great Britian. I guess they were for sale for a while somewhere, Lego Windsor is my guess. They were never made for a set, I don't know much more about them. They looked cool and I thought they would go well with forestmen, so I picked up ten. Thanks again for the comments!

Okay, here is my redone bad chess army thing:

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/royds ... dchess.jpg

I spent today redoing it after I noticed that I inadvertantly copied Yaron's entry (great minds think alike, right?). So let me know what you think. Do any of you realize how hard it is to pose 8 pawns with shields so that none of them reflect straight back at the camera? I would fix one and then not stand in exactly the same spot and another one would reflect the flash. Arggh! Oh well, enough venting....

Josh

Thanks! I was going for the Friar Tuck thing with the Bishops, but they do look Druidish (is that a word?). :)

Nice work Josh! I like the "bad company". And with your Forestmen you are on the same way like me, only earlier.
I would try to do my best to beat this.

My entries (not on a 'chess board', mainly because I was too lazy to put one together :? ):

The Black Knight Faction...
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/eddotcom/LEGOChess/blkknightschess01.jpg

& the Crusaders Faction...
http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/eddotcom/LEGOChess/crusaderschess02.jpg

Better pics of the fella's in the back rows can be seen here...:

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=132692

You'll also see pics of a Forestmens Faction as well, but I saw one was already entered (& again, my laziness t oremove them from my gallery)... thus the other two as entries...

Now to work on single pieces...

Life is Good.
