Bit of a nitpicky question, but are we building to 'heroica scale' or heroica fig scale (eg 2 bricks tall). I ask this as the scale within the games varies for example the part they use as doors, are too small for the figs, and the trees etc are smaller than the figs.

So are we building to the '2 brick height' scale. Or the scale that the games use themselves (with the figs being 'oversized' compared to there environment). Sorry to be nitpicky! :oops:

Hey,

Sorry if I was unclear. You should build to the scale of the figs (or, if you don't have any of those figs, use a 2-brick or 6-plate stack as a stand-in).

Here's a first entry from me (I'll post the other one later);
"The Queen and I will walk now"
Image
King Arthur was in a good mood, as he always was when he looked forward to a nice relaxing vacation in his summer castle, and Queen Guinevere was in a bad mood, as she always was when riding in a carriage, particularly along the edge of such a bumpy precipice as this one - and presently, after a harder bump than usual, King Arthur stuck his head out of the window and called to the driver, "The Queen and I will walk now, I think," and the rest of the perilous ascent was made on foot, but Guinevere's temper was not improved.

More Photos!
