Smallish Update.

I would have liked to post another Finale Figures volume but the outside lighting has not been suitable for photography...

But, we're going though the final stages of writing and editing! Soon we'll get to formatting! :p (We haven't made our books available on kindle before. Tough stuff I assure you.)

Also, great progress is being made on the finale build! I'll leave you with this very exciting teaser pic-

The heroic "Mark of Falworth" in all his glimmering glory.

Finale Figures. Volume 1

Well, one of the things we wanted to accomplish while writing this first book was to beat our biggest build record. (Currently held by our Orðlokarr Castle.
The big build is in-the-works and the details and designs are well underway.
It will also be the closing scene in this first story which we thought was kinda cool. ;)

We plan to release photos of said creation when our book is published! So if you see a huge build with our signatures on the bottom check out our blog to get your hands on THE ANSELM SAGA Part 1 "The Envoy"

In the meantime, enjoy the first wave of custom minifigures that will be featured in the grand build finale!  

The Knights at Gisellicburg, We've built a few more knights since taking this picture. But don't worry! You'll see them soon enough... ;)

THE ANSELM SAGA- Episode One Coming!

Above is an early preliminary photo of two book character ideas "Mark of Falworth" and "Squire Francis" These are essentially the same, though slightly different, versions of those used in the book.   

That's right folks, Episode 1 is coming very soon! We decided to break down a very long tale into several books, or "episodes". This will make it easier for you to get your hands on some of what we're working on. ;)

Who are we? Well, most of those who will read this will know Mark and Steven Erickson from their Flickr Photostreams and from our LEGO creations.
We also are the authors of the Warfare by Duct Tape books. So, you might know us from there as well.

We've long wanted to write a book series illustrated with our LEGO creations and last year we got the wheels turning!

We hope to keep you all updated here with the latest info on our series and eventually you'll be able to buy the books right from this site!

Thanks for visiting and be sure to check back often!
