TBD on that one. WHile we don't want to get too ambitious at first, there's so many things that can be done. At this point though I'd like Joshua to guide the proceedings. He could start by listing the options which have been discussed so far, to generate conversation. At some point though we will need to start narrowing down options and then finally a general vote.Lord Mercat wrote:Will the collab just be a collection of builds, or one giant build?
Caelan wrote:An amazing battle in 1879 involving 120 British troops holding off 4000 (yes, you read that right) Zulu warriors at a hospital/missionary station just over the border from Zululand, South Africa. It was immortalized in Michael Caine's first movie, Zulu (although that fantastic movie got the real history of the entire first 45 minutes wrong). Here's the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorke%27s_Drift Celebrated by military enthusiasts just about everywhere. This year is the 50th anniversary of the movie, and the 135th anniversary of the real battle (January 29, to be exact).

I ask because this'll be my first year, and want to know if my budget is around the right price mark, or if I seem to be missing something.

ALL: While we are talking about $$$: Personally, I do NOT recommend the venders, unless you don't mind used LEGO and buy from the one vender in the corner who sells $10 for a small ziplock bag free-pick, or $15 for a gallon-size ziplock. Save your money for the "Yard Sale" on Saturday and get to that really early. THis is for anyone who wants to sell or buy, and the deals are infintely better than the vampire venders (who upcharge like Outlaws).
= Joshua, I plan on attending the event. I've already registered, have a couple of MOC's registered and would like to put involved in an LCC collab somehow. However, all of my LCC troops are committed to my builds ATM. That may change though.

Oh and finally, didn't Lenfald have a challenge a while back where you had to beg your citizens to pay your outlandish taxes?
1. I can show you which vender I am refering to, but again it's only if you don't mind used, and I do mean used, LEGO. I only use this stuff for infrastructure, never surface (viewable) LEGO. And since I never buy brick-knock-offs I wouldn't know the skinny on them (yep, proud purist). I am refering mainly to the ones selling minifigs and with LEGO separated into bags mounted on racks. You'll pay around 1.25 to 1.5 times what you can get them for on Bricklink.
