Illegal Arms Dealing, Medieval Style

I love this small scene concocted by Justin (CrazyLlama2). The floor technique is nice. The walls and windows show some really good skills, but that scroll puts it over the top.

    Does that mean it can’t look good in this creation?

    I’ve also seen minifigs selling weapons, in a castle, with flags on the walls. I’ve also seen similar floor techniques and windows.

    However this build combines a number of really good techniques into a cohesive whole. The scroll is the centerpiece and focus of the build. What is the problem?

    Who is “he”? The builder doesn’t claim that is was a new technique. In fact his emphasis was on the floor.

    No one can keep up with every “new” technique. My apologies if you think it shouldn’t be posted here but I disagree. This builder didn’t “invent” the technique but he uses it the best, in my opinion.

    Whoops, it didn’t connect that I was talking to the blogger, you’re who I meant by ‘he’ :P

    Anyway I just interpreted what you said as an insinuation that it’s a fresh fancy new technique, rather than something that looks nifty and is used very well in the scene.

    I won’t argue that it’s a good scene, it combines some of my favorite techniques I’ve seen recently, namely the cobble, which I was hoping castle builders would be using more! :D

    Btw if you wanna see, in the comments somebody linked to a previous use of the scroll technique :)

    This is silly, squidy. I know about the comments on Flickr. I posted in the comments earlier. I know the builder didn’t invent the technique. That is not the point. I don’t actually care who “invented” it, building techniques are open source. This builder used it (and other really good techniques) in a really nicely cohesive manner. The scroll is the center and highlight (for me) of the MOC. Everything else points to it. That is all I meant. I’m sorry if I wasn’t clear. Are we good?

    Josh, what I’m taking away from this is that you should probably just commit hara-kiri, sparing us from future horrible blogging ;)

    PS – Glad to see a little recent activity from you. I was beginning to worry about you :)

    @Stevethesquid – Good! ;)

    @AK – Thanks Jordan. Had a lot of issues going on. Was kind of worried about myself as well. :)
