Thanks for the comments, guys.
FriskyW, I appreciate your high opinion of my building ability. The reason I went this route is that I've been working on building this army up for a couple of years now, and I wanted something to showcase them. I honestly don't have a lot of building time, which is why you don't see things from me very often, and is also the reason behind the relative simplicity of this MOC (though the road really did turn out great, which you can see a little bit of in my secondary picture on Flickr, and I also am happy with the pavillion).
This MOC was meant to "show off" my figs, but not in a "look what I have that you don't" way, but more in a "this is what I've put a lot of work into and am proud of" way.
If I recall correctly, you're a bit younger than I am. Once you've had 27 years to accumulate minifigs and have a little more money at your disposal (I work 50-60 hrs a week to help fund my habit), I'm sure you'll have an even better collection than I do
Thanks again for the feedback!
