For weeks small contingents of allied Garhieim & Loreos forces have been ambushing Lenfald scouting parties and supply lines to disrupt the enemy forces. In doing so they were able to draw their combatants from their strong points to thin their lines for a larger counter attack.
GC XV -- Unrestricted - Battle in the Ruins: Battle of the Great Ball Court
The combined force landed at the Neck of the island. Lenfald and Outlaw forces occupied the ruins of temple complex that gave them a vantage point to the Western ocean. Smaller contingents of Allies forces raided South of the Neck for weeks causing Lenfald to send troops from their compound. Thus allowing for a proper attack on the toking force. Even still the hastily fashioned fortifications would be a tough nut to crack.
Hey thedonald13 , have you made any progress on BrickCon stuff? I finally started my LUG's collaborative project. Hoping to get that "done" within the next couple weeks so that I can start on my part of Grant Davis's collab, and then the classic Redux stuff. Based on time, I'll plan on focusing on the Black Falcon fortress and will do the guarded inn and Wolfpack Tower if I have time, but if someone else wants one of those, feel free.
How are things going for this? Look forward to seeing what you guys come up with. Especially those redux castle figs/sets if that comes to fruition.
I've been pretty lame about posting much. But, its mostly due to the ongoing GC (I have a tough time with jungle scenes). Just wrapped on a my restricted, unres is 45% done give or take. The good new with my unrestricted is that I will be able to use the boat for the collab. I also have to start a build for KC. Should be interesting!

No problemo ... I'm down in the Los Angeles area for the D23 conference and this is my first time checking in on anything Lego related! I have kid watching the house and sorting some bricks for me. Hopefully they will have made some headway by the time i get back.

2000 more of just the trans dark blue? How many total?
Spent the morning rounding up my Crusaders Knights ... found 102, but I know I have more. The only problem is I don't have the Crusader shields to match all of them. But, looking over the Black Falcons & Black Knight sets, every other set has a siege weapons. I can easily put together adult versions of them to go along with the landing craft.
I may take a run at Crusader's Mountain Fortress too.

Is this still the layout you are working with ? If so ... that little keep would be a pain in the bricks to siege! But, a beachhead to land some figs on would be great, or even just the height of the edge and I could help build it out.

As far as the classics go I have a significant Crusaders and Black Knight collection.
Building the King's Mountain Fortress should be easy enough (assuming I figure out transport). But, I don't know if I have the materials for building the Black Knight's or Monarch's Castle. It never crossed my mind to collect black bricks! I should be able to put together an updated Battle Dragon or Sea Serpent to land a Black Knight Army.
Hey guys I don't know if this is at all stores but today I picked up set 76060, Dr strange's sanctum sanctorum for under $25 from Target. I also picked up set 70603 Raid Zeppelin, for the same under $25 at Walmart.
Keep your eyes open some good stuff looks like it's getting ready to go on sale.
I too picked up the Sanctum at my local Target, I think I got it for $23.99. I was sad the bricks weren't printed, but still not terrible.
^ Also ... to let you know the Northwest portion of Loreos, namely the Morastius-Renu region is inhabited by our our own native dwarves. This is also an alternative to your issue. Again, all of these scenarios are very flexible.
