After receiving an inspiring comment from Mark Kelso a few weeks ago, I dove into what I thought would be an epic, awesomely frightening, bloody, huge, good ol' fashion vampire MOC. Turns out I had about a third of the pieces needed to create this monstrosity. So after cursing my incompetent headlight brick supply, I set about to downsizing and eventually scratching my vampire minifigs altogether.
So the lesson learned? There's always tomorrow to build what you can't today. And know your enemy. But that's a different story.
