Base is finished, 3 out 6 buildings complete (mostly). Progress has temporarily come to a halt (it's been in this state for over 2 weeks), and will definitely be slower going forward, but thankfully the bulk of it is done.

Also for Zebra:

Oh wow this is pretty slim! Is this supposed to be for a forum battle or just a nice and dandy urban diorama?

The plan is to run a forum battle on it, but don't get too excited because my track record is pretty awful. I've started 3 or 4 battles in the past that I ended up not finishing, but I think I may have zeroed in on most of the things that have kept me from finishing them.

I won't get into too much detail (I'll save that for a write-up if I end up finishing this one), but the two biggest things are that I never had space to keep the battlefield between turns, and I was never really happy with the build quality of the battlefield. I've addressed the first issue by making the whole battlefield a solid build that can be taken apart easily (the buildings come off easily, and base splits into 4 quarters). I've addressed the second issue by putting a lot of thought into the layout and appearance, and making sure there are plenty of fun scenarios that might pop up during the battle. So hopefully that will improve my chances of finishing this battle.

TL;DR I'm going to try another forum battle but it's different this time I swear.

Also added a new building to the battlefield.

Missing a couple of pieces and interior furnishing, though.

Wow, nice. Also, the motorcycle was a solid build that looked really well and not as oversized as legos official brickbuilt motorcycles.

Sorry for the delay, I've had this picture ready for a while:

Also, current state of the battlefield:

All that's left is the building in the top right, finishing some interior spaces, and adding/replacing a few pieces.

Lastly, a couple of things I shared in chat that I'd might as well post here.
