Febraury Minifig Contest - Winners

Welcome to the February Minifig Contest.

First let me explain that there will be prizes. I just did not have the time to put that together. I have had a family medical emergency. I will get it together before the end, I promise.

So this is going to be a little different than I have done. We have 4 categories. You may build in all or just one. I will describe what I can. Please ask questions but realize that I am still very much dealing with that emergency.

Category 1: Royal Court
Please pick 5 characters for your Royal Court and build them. They need to be made from all LEGO parts.

Category 2: Your peasants
Please pick 5 characters for your peasants and build them. They too need to be made from all LEGO parts.

Category 3: Your army
Please pick 5 characters to represent your army. They also need to be made from all LEGO parts.

Category 4: The customization
Build one castle figure with customization. Here is where you get to use stickers, physically alter your pieces, etc. Please understand in this category the use of paint, glue, stickers, markers, fabric, dremmel, drills...and what not is what I am talking about. It is not constructing a fig from existing parts. That is what the other categories are for.

Rules:
1) You may enter each category twice.

2) Place your entries in this thread.

3) You may build a setting for your figs but...and this is important...only the figs will be judged. If I can not see the figs because of setting, well it will not score as well as it could. It totally depresses me when I can not see what I am supposed to see in a build that I am judging because the rest of it is just "extra."

4) Please give me only group shots of your figs. I don't care about the size. I really don't care how many pictures you use, but I want to be able to see them together not separately. Having said that, please overwhelm me with photos.

5) Have fun. That is the most important part.

6) Please post your own thread for your figures so people can discuss them. I'd like to keep this one as clean as I can so I can judge easily.

7) Time...post them before midnight EST on February 29.

Prize pictures will follow. They will still follow but I do know they will be fig parts in lots that the winners may chose. I will have pictures as soon as I have it all together.

My entry for the army category.

The Silver Squad is an accomplished group of warriors. Garen’s crossbow accuracy is incredible despite his tendency to be easily startled. Kaden’s solid spear skills have saved other squad members numerous times. Squad leader Riquier is confident and decisive, while the youngest member Tobyn is already an asset to the team. And Kitt’s quiet strength holds the group together.

custom figure. I hit the visor (I like this rounded underside pointy version better than the square tip pig snout), helmet, and armor with 600 grit sandpaper and then gold "plastic bonding" paint. a rex dangervest head, and the rest is like the gold knight from set 7079.

The Army. Left to Right. An infantryman, knight, Heavy Lancer, Archer, and Heavy Guard (typically used for static duties)
