I think I have over a dozen Crown Knights, which I think is the most I have of any faction.

Only a handful but it's ok, I don't need more.

I have about 35, though most have morphed into Gondorians, for whom they are outstanding stand-ins. I'll keep some as an independent knighthood.

I have 75 with including royalty however, I will probably end up selling 10-20 to make room for the inevitable crownies I get from next year's sets.

As you can see here, I have 139 footsoldiers and 13 mounted knights at the moment.

They are all modified, though - all of them have dark blue legs, and I used at least 2 types of Viking torsos, too. The knights had arms, legs and helmets replaced, as well as white plumes added.

These will all end up in a largish battle scene we're preparing for April.

More detailed pictures to follow. :wink:

The Hun - I also equipped my crown knights with white plumes, so I wasn't surprised to see you do the same. But, you gave every scorpion knight a black plume! That's insane... I have collected Legos for 20 years and I only have 1 black plume to show for

I gots none! I started "collecting" in 1993 and went more for parts per buck than for rare parts for bucks, so I skipped over lots of rare parts. I'm still happy... but I need more plumes. :wink:

I do however have a lot of Crownies.

I have no crownies. I only recently discovered the newest lines because I have only recently come out of my lego dark age (a month or two ago). So, thus far in my recent collecting, I have only gathered up small numbers of dwarves and trolls. I am definitely hoping the dwarves stay around awhile longer because they are one of my favorite factions...

To be honest I love the crownies but think after 2009 I will have more than enough of them being such a massive percent of most current sets 2007-2009. I hope we get a new human faction sometime soon.... not that I want the crownies gone entirely, maybe a soldier here or there as prisoner or to fight with etc. but I am ready for a new human faction.

The only exception is the Gold Knights.... I want to get a few of those gents for an elite unit.

Congrats on the 1200th. It also appears that I have a (relative to my other factions) large number of Crown Knights as well. For me, I am equally curious about a new human faction as I am about a potential elven faction. But I am happy to see Skeletons in 2009 sets along with the other Crown, Dwarf, & Orc.

I wish there were better close-ups of the "gold knight."

Username,

That is a nice close up.

My only comment for the Gold Knight is I wish they would have made a new shield for him. The standard one just does not sit well to my eyes but thats just my take on it.

Maybe you could use one of the KKII 2.0 gold shields with the blue falcon. I am planning on using him as the head guard for the king and making a few more guards with pearl gold breastplates.
