One thing this exercise has proved is that I'm tending to favour the colours white, gold and blue for the heroic characters. I need to start introducing other colours I think.
Rex is the emperor of the Medieval Universe. He is a widow, his late wife is called Marissa and she leaves behind a scheming sister Maud who is a witch planning to take the throne. Rex has one child, a daughter called Karolyn (also known as Lady Kay) who has made it her life's work to oppose her aunt and defend the kingdom.
Rex also has a love interest in the form of Lady Elizabeth Hawk, an apprentice to Maud who also seeks to take the throne, but via marriage. However as she truly loves the emperor, her ambitions are kept in check (mostly).
Rex surrounds himself with knights and advisers, amongst the most famous and loyal are, Centrix, who's armour is a centaur, Sir Benedict, head of the royal guard and love interest for Lady Kay, The Wise Man, a hermit who advises the emperor on magical matters and The Wizard of the Green, a magician who comes to the aid of the palace in times of darkest emergency.
The greatest enemy of Rex is the necromancer, Mortillus. Kept alive only by his own evil will, this creature has escaped the underworld via a weakness between the worlds close to the lake city which lies at the heart of the kingdom. Mortillus seeks to take the castle and rule as the new emperor, and has raised an army of skeletal warriors for this task.
Other enemies include the Dark Elves of the north. Once all humans and elves lived in peace under an ancient treaty, but the madness brought on by dark magic, lead to a faction of mountain dwelling elves to rebel. The wood elves of the forests still uphold the treaty and frequently ally with Rex against their insane cousins.
I've now added Rex himself to the group. Final image shows size comparisons between the major heroic figures. From left to right:
Emperor Rex (in Changeling Armour), Sir Benedict, Wizard of the Green, Wise Man (of the forrest) Sir Centrix, Lady Karolyn (Princess Kay), Lady Gladiator, Lady Hawk (Queen Elizabeth).
Emperor Rex, despite being one of the tallest designs, is not the largest number of bricks. The finished design has less than 380 bricks.
Gold is the most common colour used for the series, it features in all 8 of the heroic designs.
The second most common colour is silver, including the weapons, all the designs to date include at least 1 silver piece.
To date the only design not to feature a weapon of any kind is Wizard of the Green, for the heroes.
The lowest brick count of the designs featured here is Wizard of the green with 203 pieces.
The shortest design, measuring to the head of the pilot, is Wise Man. he stands at 14 bricks high. The tallest, emperor Rex, stands at 21 bricks high.
The biggest weapon count is jointly held by all three female characters at 3 each, if you count is pincer arm as a weapon Wiseman also has 3. Surprisingly the lowest weapon count, other than Wizard of the Green who technically has non, is Sir Benedict who only carries his long sword and no other weapons. If you count his shield as a weapon, Emperor Rex has two, as does Sir Centrix.
