The Twa Corbies

Kaptain Kobald presents a vig based on a poem from the 17th century, The Twa Corbies, in which two ravens discuss a fallen knight:

'His hound is to the hunting gane,
His hawk to fetch the wild-fowl hame,
His lady 's ta'en anither mate,
So we may mak our dinner sweet.

This past weekend, LEGO builders gathered in Seattle for NWBrickCon 2006. Check out some photos. While it doesn't look like there were a ton of vigs on display, there were some. Unfortunately I haven't yet seen close-up pics of individual vignette MOCs. As soon as I find some, I'll highlight them here. If anyone has good pics of individual vigs, especially if you know who built what, please let me know. Thanks.

Please size your pics


If you try to scroll down you may have problems with your browser lagging (depending on your connection, I suppose). This is because some Brickshelf users do not resize their images. I can compress these on the screen with html taggs, but the data is still all there for really huge images. If you post pics on Brickshelf and actually want people to look at them (and why else would you post pics on a public site), please please resize them to something like 800x600 or smaller. There are various free software solutions to do this, including programs you can download, programs that probably came pre-installed on your computer, or something that came with your digital camera. You might want to read this recent Lugnet thread for some thoughts on presenting images on Brickshelf.
