[FF20] Solaeras Invictus and the Golden Brik

Behold the Companions of the Golden Brik, an adventuring party that has risen from the rubble of Ragnablok to mete out justice and gather swag across the expanse of Castle themed landscapes and worlds. Their motto is "Live. Laugh. Loot."

From Left to Right:
  • Stan the Tin Man - Stan, short for Stannum, is the party's clockwork guardian, acting as the uncomplaining workhorse and bodyguard for the team's squishier members.
  • Fezzywig the Indefatigable - Fezzywig is a gnomish enchanter and tinkerer, and wears a magnificent Gnomish Toque of Holding. A fount of scholarly knowledge, Fezzywig is always quick with a joke or a cookie.
  • Solaeras, Servant of the Light Unyielding - Solaeras is half elf, half angel, and a paladin knight on top of that, so you can imagine how insufferable she is. In combat she is a pillar of righteous fury, and wielder of the Blessed Blade of Saint Osteen Tassius. She prefers a wardrobe all in shades of pearl gold, to really drive home how paladinous she is.
  • Mickelbee, the Goblin Alchemist - Mickelbee is the product of the age old RPG dilemma: What should a paladin do if they find a goblin baby abandoned in the road? The obvious answer of ‘kill it, because it will grow up evil,’ somehow did not apply however, and Solaeras brought him home and asked to keep him. Mickelbee grew up to become a traveling alchemist, and is always quick to dispense a healing potion or a mind melting psychedelic.
  • Sir Didymus, the Unibrony Knight - Supposedly a member of a knightly questing order, Sir Didymus is of questionable value in combat. He has become self proclaimed custodian of the Companion’s “brand’ and for the most part acts as the group’s social media manager.

The Companions of the Golden Brik are a group of murderhoboes stalwart adventurers that travel the lands of Castle Theme to fight evil and plunder riches. Luckily, power corrupts, so the richer a would-be tyrant, the more likely they are to also be evil and thus need necessary justice and the seizing of loot. Today, the Companions have come seeking...

...and her army of the undead, lead by the terrible Carrion King, a villain so heinous he refuses to follow convention and start his name with the obligatory K.

ONWARD TO VICTORY! AND THE SPOILS!!

Here we see Solaeras clashing with her greatest and deadliest enemy, the Dreadknight Malaklypse the Malign. Armed with his own overcompensatingly huge OT sword, no other foe has Solaeras so evenly or grievously matched.

Kustom Kharacter
Here is an establishing shot of Solaeras and her parts breakdown and arsenal. Solaeras started as a figure for our D&D campaign. And the age old curse almost proved true: Once you complete a fig for your character, they almost certainly die. She uses a lot of Brick Warriors gear in her build and started out as a collectible series Winged Warrior.

Purist Pugilist
This is Malaklypse, who is a character I put together initially for my Anorakistan Army. He massively overcompensates for everything by having red transparent armor and an orange transparent sword, and flaming wings. Most of his elements come from Nexo Knights and Chima.

**********************************************************************

I didn't want to exceed my picture limit for the contest, but I still wanted to give clearer pictures of the other Companions. I'm particularly proud of Stan. He's a purist build. Fezzywig started out as a Maggy Simpson and has a wizard hat from Brick Warriors. Mickelbee has a harness and backpack from Brick Warriors, and some waist pouches from Brick Forge I think. Sir Didymus is straight up the Unicorn Knight from the collectible minifigs series with zero alterations. But I thought he was funny so I threw him into the group.

You're the reason I'm a villain, Red_SPAMbot. :fist: How dare you be this creative, you make us look bad.

Thank you for the kindly words, but it mirrors much the same of my feelings about everyone else's work. I feel I have no chance. There's lots of tasty bits in these barfs.
