I have no minions..and it is a very sad thing.

I was obscenely pleased that I was able to complete my fig without resorting to BL.


I needed brown for the wig which I still haven't completed yet. And yellow plates. It's always something.

Hey All,

I need dimensions of anything people are bringing for the collaborative build. Let me know in this thread...pics are good too.

See y'all soon!

This is other than the "battle scene" area, correct?

I am contributing roughly 20 cow and 20 pig troops to the PvC battle scene, but I also have an army of approx 300 human troops that I'd love to bring to attack someone's layout. They are a mix of "Blue factions", including Black Falcons, Crownies, the new "Crown Lions", and some custom factions I've made up. I'm guessing I'll need at least 64x64 to set them up. I can provide a B+B standard landscape layout for them. Just tell me where to put roads/streams and what direction to face my army :twisted:

I can also field a few dozen each of "Red" and "Green" troops if we are doing another big battle layout.

I'm also bringing a macro-fig, but I'm guessing those will be set up similar to the dragons from last year so they won't be part of the collab. layout

I have a small (36x36 or something) castle that isn't part of the collaborative part, and my part for the collaboration is 80 studs deep, and 128 wide.

I'd like to bring my trees and landscape again, 5' x 5', I wanted to have something new but that crazy thing called life got in the way. I do have another 2.5' x 5' partly complete but I doubt I'll be able to finish it in time.
I will have some PvC troops for both sides.

Josh,
I can go as small as 5 bp deep and 5 bp wide. Hoping to do more then that but thats the core build. PM or email me if you need more details. Can get you some pictures by next week this time I think (hope).

Don't have anything big, but I'll bring filler stuff for any holes in the collaborative layout.

Hey All!

What you have is looking good! There is currently room for everything you have mentioned. However, there has been some talk of filling holes in the layout or bringing extra plates and bricks. Just so you know, right now, there isn't much of layout at all. At least not what I have been told about. The layout IS a hole. What we have is EK's section, BiggerJim's, Thomas' and mine. There is another collaborative build going on (it looks very good!) but it won't be connected to this one.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on that score.

Ok. My size was an estimate on the small side. Will see if I can't go a bit larger.

My small section (now called St. Piggin's) is not part of the layout? :(

Sorry the details were sort of buried at the bottom of a post quite a ways back:

Hey Ted,

I did miss that it was part of the collab. ;) I thought it was stand-alone. I wouldn't exclude you buddy!

I will be bringing my LCC banquet hall as a stand-alone MOC.

Do you think there will be any problem with me putting a stack of these "business cards" next to it for public consumption?
