Oh, I see now :).

Hmm, me either. Maybe Announcements or Sets? :?

Edit: I know a few forums not to put it in:Medieval Life, Stories, Displays, Dear LEGO, Administrative, Gaming, MOCs, Customs, and Buy/Sell/Trade, if that's any help. That leaves Sets, General, and Announcements.

I'd say general, but made sticky if the mods will allow, so it doesn't get burried. It would be a nice reference for rare items.

Back to the topic of Jens awesome minifigs, I must say I like the purple faction the best. You converted some nice jellies into a knight and squire/entourage. Very cool.

I think the coolest part of your stuff is how it all fits together. Each piece seems to be picked out specifically and it wasn't just "Hey! I'll give a forestwoman a green bandana"!

Simple enough.


My personal favorites are the Forest Woman and the chap in the red turban. But they are all great.

:wink:

Hey, I like all of the minifigs are great, but the one that strikes me is the lady. I dont know what it is. Maybe it is the rareness...maybe it is the green bandana...Oh! I dont know. Anyway, the figs are great and I would like to see more.
Have a great day, Thomas

I really like the "nubier" fig (nubian?). This is one of those times I prefer the non-yellow flesh tones.

Hi!

I finally finished the moving to our new house. I have a little bit time to sort my collection.
Now I have an own room for my stuff. But I have to share it with the tools... Anyway, it is enough space now.

While sorting some boxes I've found an older bricklink order with a black horse-barding. When it arrived, I think it's a couple of months, maybe two years ago, I was very disapointed, because it wasn't pure black, the printing was rubbed of.

When I saw the barding I remembered the black Horse-helmets I ordered shortly and here it is:

... after moderation

Here are some deeplinks.* It's very cool, but it doesn't look like I imagine a Nazgul would. But this is just your interpretation of it, which is fine. I do like it, though, and the Jawa head is great, and so is the mace. The mace head looks better with the extra piece on it.

*I clicked the quote button, and removed the /thumb and _thumb.jpg from the URL, then noticed it was nazgul3, so I tried two others.

Yet another cool fig, Jens. I like the head, fits very well.

The barding looks good and I love those black horse helmets. I just got four of them...

As always, you've done good work. I like the use of the Jawa head, and his horse looks really mean with all those weapons.

And congrats on the new house! :wink:

Great horse and fig, Jens! You've also photographed it rather well, which is a challenge for something that's all black like this.

I know, it's not castle, but it belongs to the thread
Related Theme Set Review: Dragon Fortress and I don't want to highjack it.


I bought the set 7419 a few years ago at Legoland Germany. It isn't really castle, but at this time there was now other set that was castle-themed and even not at my collection.

Nowadays I think it was a good idea to buy it. There are some bricks at this set you can't find in any other set.

I got two little tan bar (3L) in the set. There is no use at the instruction for these bars. I found one a while ago:

And to stay castlelish:
Today in the evening you will see some new castle-figs from the last bricklink-orders and searchings within my collection, so stay tuned...

regards,
jens

3L Bars ? Do they even exist ? :shock:
And if they really do, why weren't there any in my 7419 ? :?
May be it's just some kind of packaging error..

I'm looking forward to see your new "special-part" figures !
