A Royal Inspection . The king visits one of the empire's border outposts -- is everything in order? . This is the second model that is heading for Brickworld Fort Wayne next month. It began life as the tower, then I built the rocky base of the thing and spent a frustrating three or four hours trying different ways to get it to fit on there with the doorway at an angle. It's my proudest achievement with this build, I guess. Then I decided it was set along a stream/river, so I built up some landscape. Then I added the wooden top to the tower and decided the king was coming to inspect the troops and I'd show them getting ready by doing laundry, tidying up and so on. Then I remembered the mermaid and had her enticing the soldier doing laundry. I thought it might be funny that a local farmer and his long-suffering wife would have to scramble to keep their livestock out of sight of the king's often-hungry troops, and I had more time/desire/bricks I'd add a module containing their small farm. Instead, I'll probably leave it as is. Also, there's a troop of rangers coming back from a hunting mission empty-handed, but the eagle-eyed scout up in the tree warned the garrison captain that king was near and they've just lined up for inspection (the knight is saluting the king, not challenging him to a fight, capeesh?) I built this with the intention of having a somewhat whimsical castle scene, rather than yet another battle. If you're in Fort Wayne (Indiana) or the surrounding area Sept. 22-23, stop in and see me to tell me what you really think! One final, unrelated shot: "The love that dare not speak its name" Dedicated to my friends in VirtuaLUG -- Ya'll are awesome!
