My favorite Arthurian book is The Once and Future King by T.H. White.

Back on topic: As far as building King Arthur scenes, I think getting enough pictures would be a long task that you would have to mainly do by yourself. If you have too many builders involved, the pictures may not be what you want and the models would be designed in multiple styles.

I read the "Great Illustrated Classics" one but I hope the main one is the same. Its called King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table written by Howard Pyle. We will go by it.

Well, I think The Once and Future King is much better... Pyle is just too superficial

I`m sorry, you`ve probably all seen this x100 over, but I still think it`s one of the greatest Lego creations of all time. :lol:

But failing the Monty Python version of the Arthurian Legends, I would go for The Once and Future King. Great read.

Another good version of the Arthurian tales is Lord Alfred Tennyson's The Idylls of the King . The book is a collection of poems that tells the tales of King Arthur (like in Beowolf or in Homer's The Iliad).

My local Barns and Noble didn't have a copy of the book so I had to order it :( . I will get my copy sometime next week and I can't wait to read it.

I just ordered Lord Alfred Tennyson's The Idylls of the King. I read one of his Arthurian poems from a collection of his work that was in the bookstore and I decided to order this book. It has almost everything Tennyson wrote on King Arthur.

Does no one care or are people just not commenting. I think the pics look like an all right start, but you may want to hold off on the smaller updates and then wow us with a gallery full of new images. That usually works better if it is attention you are craving. :wink:
