Is 24x40 ok? That's a total of 960 squarestuds (ok that sounds weird) as opposed to 1024 from 32x32..

Well...........Yeah, I suppose so. Really, the only reason I have the restriction is so that people try harder to increase the quality of the creation. I am considering removing that rule next year.

Certainly. I must remember to add that to the rules.

Great job to everybody that has entered so far. There are some truely great creations here. I hope that we get twice as many before the deadline.

I need to take better photographs I know, but in the meantime (and as a safety measure in case something goes wrong as it most often does :P) here are some slightly blurry pics..

Oh well, you got to admit that the red velvet is classy at least ;)

Very interesting Maedhros. A question if I may? How big, roughly, should a minifigure be in comparison to the creation? I'm asking in order to get a better understanding of the creation, so, when the time comes, I will judge it better.

Well, it would be tiny :P Think of the bridge as 15 studs wide or so..

And here be some slightly better pics:

DARKspawn, that Micro Fortress is fantastic. I think I even like it better than some of your fig scale stuff.

Nice one Darkspawn, some clever micro techniques used there :)
