So, last minute decision, booked a flight up. Not gonna have much room since I'm flying but I'll try and bring a bag or two of figs at least. Also, I have Harold.

It really will be like a reunion! it will be good to see you man.

I have suffered a building setback, a gout attack has sidelined me these last two days. It means I may have less to bring, we'll have our enthusiasm!

Just don't do what Aliencat does. He builds things and leaves them at home. At least he says he builds them.... ;)

May I present photographic evidence?

That's a tower for my desert bit, still gotta build the rest.

Okay, folks, we are down to the wire. For those of you who are still able to pack (Blue is out), we do need some basic, generic stuff. Here is a list of good things to bring to the Con, to finish up the layout. Remember, the following is a list of suggestions...not orders. ;)

1. Tan baseplates to finish up the desert. I am planning to have our annual giant fig battle in the desert this year, but we need baseplates for them to fight on.

2. Tan brick and plate. This is to landscape the generic baseplates from number one.

3. Base8 sections without roads or rivers. We have a number of smallish places that have holes that can be filled by these.

4. Green baseplates, bricks and plates. This is to build any base8 that doesn't come prebuilt.

5. Figs. We probably won't use them all but will need figs to populate general, common areas.

6. Foliage. I will have a bunch but plain ground always looks better with some plants.

If anyone is concerned about their stuff getting mixed in and vanishing, we have ways of keeping track. I will discuss these with whoever actually brings things. We have been doing this for quite a few years now and are pretty good at keeping track of everything.

Any questions? Feel free to ask.

It's coming soon! :D

I may have a few 16x32 tan plates (6 or more) for the desert layout. Other than that, my own MOC is swallowing up everything I've got, and I'll just be bringing enough spare parts for joining with the rest of the display. I will have figures though. Hundreds of figures...

As many of you probably know by now, I am bringing my little hut. However, I do not have any base for it, so if we could find somewhere to put it in the general display, that'd be awesome! I am also, as previously stated, bringing all of my figures and can help out with battles, general population, and last-minute sigfigs (Caylin). So excited to see all of you again and to be a part of this awesome experience once again!

See you in two weeks!

I've got about 100 figs I can bring, various factions, along with about 2 dozen horses. I'll take inventory of the rest of your requests when I get home this evening.

When is all of this last-minute assembly going to take place? Friday?

Wow, it's coming down to the wire. I have a ton of work to do on my Castle for the collaborative area. I guess it's best not to worry about interiors if time is of the essence since people will pretty much just see the exterior, correct?

Can't wait! :mrgreen:

Correct. Don't worry about interiors. Assembly of the layout will start Thursday morning and continue right on up until we start tearing it down. ;) Any building of extra bits takes place whenever people are inclined, by whoever is inclined. Fairly low stress and we have lots of time.

I actually have some mocs that I didnt mean to build ( it was late and it just happened...) that would go nicely in some empty space if there is room. I made a cart with 4 horse carriage carrying a huge dragon head and can throw the dragon knight dragon in there with some scared lion knights running away for good measure somewhere else :D
