The Royal Tour

And so it was that the four Great Guilds of Historica reinforced the bonds between them with masterful diplomacy. Pleased with the newly-established era of unity, the High King Draconius has decided to tour the realm of Historica, so that he may survey all the newly-built embassies and note-worthy sights first-hand, and reward all those whose efforts had helped insure the peace.

 

From the Capital Stronghold of Cedrica, the High King, his entourage and armed guard shall make their way to each of the four realms of Historica. Thus the King has sent messengers to every Guild, decreeing they must prepare their land for his arrival. “It is a time of peace and prosperity” the King has announced; and all in Historica will be well advised to remember it.

 

With this new peace, the High King has decided to focus the the realm in more historical pursuits - gathering a great champion from each realm to look for an infamous Historian who may hold the answer to the Mystery of Historica's fabled hidden shrine... Stay tuned for more...

    Man this is so exciting! Can't wait for what is next.
  • Troy Armstrong 3y

    Loving the forced perspective. Nice work !
  • Simon Liu 3y

    K.Kreations I think the proper term is 'epic' :D

    Troy Armstrong Thanks. I've wanted to try it forever... so this was a good excuse

    Ah, now I see all the guilds. At first, only the Mitgardia banner is easily visible, Avalonia because of the green background and the other 2 got a bit lost in all the red pennants.

    So glad the king has recovered fully.
  • Simon Liu 3y

    robuko Ah... sorry - I didn't re-adjust the flags - I had another shot where the camera angle was higher up - so you can see more of the figs (and the flags) - but general reaction was use a lower angle to make the mountain more prominent in the back

    I should have raised them back up to make it obvious.
  • Lisa 3y

    This is just great (epic even) all around. Of course Mitgardia flags are most prominent, it's the best guild! ;-P
  • K.Kreations 3y

    Heh, I'm am sorry for my bad word choice.Epic is totally the word I was looking for. :D
  • LegoBram 3y

    nice !!!
  • Cuahchic 3y

    Lovely work Simon. Without sounding impatient, do you know when the next challenge will be up? I need to demolish my stained glass window (planned for next week - I am busy this week) then I don't have anything specific planned, so I'm open for suggestion :)
  • Simon Liu 3y

    Lisa I actually got the order mixed up :$ Mitgardia is usually near the front cause it's North.

    K.Kreations Oh it's going to be good. *tries not spoil it*

    LegoBram Thanks!

    Cuahchic r ... we wanted to try something slightly different - and ensure that the scores were in before starting forth the next build. Plus we wanted everyone to pay attention to the story... - don't worry you'll get plenty of time.

    Take a load off and do some free builds!

    Wonderful. I love the forced perspective on this. Are the chrome spears and other parts from LEGO or custom?
