I really like the dragon skull over the mantle! The fireplace is really full of great details also. The exposed beams are a great touch. The fig posing is thoughtful and engaging (I particularly like the kids practicing their swordplay). Banners on the wall are creative. Photography is pretty good. Nice and clean and brightly lit.
For critiques, I feel like you could have done more with the SNOT floor. Maybe add some masonry bricks for texture, or do a neat tapestry or mosaic design. Some of the fig combos seem questionable, such as the chef. I think a peasant-looking fig would have been a better choice. The torsos for the kids also are a little out of place. Lighting is a little harsh. Could use a little more indirect or diffused light (try switching to LED bulbs and maybe back the light source up a little as an easy fix).

So I have my big winter layout that I'm going to expand a little from last year and bring.
What about if we, as homage to the classics (Brick to Old School), do some redux's of classic sets and use only classic factions in the winter collab? Some Wolfpack, Black Falcons, Crusaders, Forestmen, all updated with new heads and "modern" versions of some of the classic sets.
