Wow. Great use of the little dome piece and the lightsabers together! Makes a good effect. What piece is used for the trees? Don't think I've seen it before.
Keep on bricking as they say! :)
Light travels faster than sound, which is why some people may appear bright until they open their mouths.

Thanks, guys. The trees are made of this piece:

That's quite cool, I really like the stylish effect of the water, quite a brave thing to do, wouldn't have occured to me that using cheese slopes at this scale could work for waves. The dome is also very nice, and so are the trees.

Oh, and anal comment, if the name is supposed to mean "lone rock" or something along those lines, it should be "Solum saxum" (or I'd have said "Saxum solum" but both work) ;)

Ooh very nice, very nice indeed - good work with the ben10 pieces. One thing, how do they get up to the temple, by pegasus back, perchance? Or are there stairs that I have missed? :tasty: I must say this 'ancients' category has been great, some really fine models produced, this included! Good luck with your entry.

Great idea with the trees. Not going to lie I have never seen that piece before I clicked on the link. Shows my infatuation with ben10 is less than loving. Very small but well done build. Best of luck on the contest.

Oh, blast it, you are correct. I even double checked my Latin to make sure it was correct, but it's been too long since I've taken Latin and I'm quite rusty. :oops:

Thanks for the many kind words, all.

Karrde; they get up there....yes, by Pegasus. :tasty: Or some such.
