The First Kings of Aurum by joshuad17 The First Kings of Aurum by joshuad17
Here are the first rulers of Astoria, in the Age of Kingdoms. 

King Leo Astor, ruler of Astor. He is actually based off the king from the Kingdoms line, not Knights Kingdom. I liked the updated design more, and the red and gold fits with his son's color scheme, which is the king from minifigure series 13. The queen minifigure bio (series 15) actually states that she and her husband had so much land that they split it in half, which goes along with the splitting of East and West Astor almost perfectly. 

Amset Ra, ruler of Rastad, later renamed Rowstad. This is what he looked like before his mummified form in Pharaoh's Quest. 

Lord Vladek Emelesk, ruler of Emlyaskiy, and sworn enemy of Morcia. I wanted to make him more of an actual ruler, and not an evil villain just for the sake of being evil. 

King Mathias Morcia, ruler of Morcia, later renamed Eastburgh. I actually used the same pose that his actual concept art uses from the Knights Kingdom II comic, just with my own design for his costume.

Lord Cedric the Bull, ruler of Daegraland. Since Daegraland has a very cold, harsh climate, I dressed Cedric in heavy clothing and furs.

Lord Basil the Bat, lord of northern Verterre, when Emlyaskiy occupied Verterre.

Your incarnation of Vladek reminds me alot of Malagant from the movie First Knight. I like it.

All in all, very good renditions of LEGO figures.

In contrast to that other guy, I always pictured Basil the Batlord sounding more like Boris Karloff, in keeping with the whole camp horror theme his collection had going on.

Also Cedric was the coolest/best Castle character and I will fight anyone who says otherwise.

If this was a cartoon theses are the voice actors I would pick for them, and which ones they would use.


Basil: Scott McNeil, (Syndri from Dawn of War) www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVpYGz…

Cedric: Clancy Brown, (The Viking Hakon from Gargoyles)

Vladek: Paul Dobson, (Eliphas from Dawn of War: Dark Crusade) www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNYgHr…

King Leo: Jim Cummings, (Not really sure with this one. I'm sure he could pull off the wise king though)

King Morcia: Richard Epcar, (Raiden from Mortal Kombat X) www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EWHSL…

Amset Ra: Robin Atkin Downes, (Mumm-Ra from 2011's Thundercats) www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wxoYx…


What do you think?

I like most of them, especially Vladek and Morcia. I'm not sure if I agree with every 'villain' having the same deep, slow, evil sounding voice (I'm trying not to portray these guys as heroes or villains, just rulers of countries that are enemies with other countries). But I think it works for Vladek, especially with his helmet on. And I think the voice for Amset Ra would work when he was a mummy a few hundred years later, but not when he was alive. Especially since the voice sounds villainous, and in my Timeline Amset Ra was pretty much neutral to every country, until he gained good relations with South Verterre and West Astor. But yeah, Amset Ra was not an evil guy. And I like Jim Cummings as Leo. I also think he could pull off an old wise king voice.

Don't worry Robin has voiced characters with less menace. Scott McNeil too. But if you curious I have another voice in mind for Basil.

Ooh, I kind of like him. I still would kind of like a higher pitched voice, though. Not comically high, but not dark and brooding. I wonder if he could do that?

Well this is what he sounds like when the character is younger. www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kDzqS…

While I remember did you know that Ogel is Vladeks decendant.  lego.wikia.com/wiki/Ogel

Yeah, I'll probably do them eventually, but first I would have to do the second generation of kings and queens. Like Jayko of Morcia, Hotep of Rastad (Amset Ra's son), the heir to Emlyaskiy, King Leo II and Honora Astor, etc. And I did know Ogel is Vladek's descendant. Which is why the Alpha Team takes place in Emlyaskiy, and is the Emlyaskin version of the Agents, which takes place in East Astor.

Great take on the characters. I like how you combined all the fantasy lines.

The Villains are of course the best designs. Cedric looks like a Celtic warlord. Basil is like a Teutonic knight. (and is probably a vampire.) And Vladek oozes authority.

Ooh, I've seen these before, but I didn't know they were based off Lego themes! I see Astor and Pharaoh's Quest here.

Is there anything from Heroica? LEGO's fantasy theme before Nexo Knighrs.

No, I haven't done anything with Heroica, or any of the Lego Games. But I mean, I could make a planet where Heroica takes place, like I did with Mixel.

Oh, I guess I can see the Lego Games being categorized as something different, like it is in real life.
I'm not asking you to go out of your way to do it, but Heroica is basically one of the/the most fantasy theme in Lego's lineup. Just explaining why I thought Heroica would be there.

Forgive me for not following along well, but what world is this in? Is this part of the whole "16 Realms" thing that Lego is now promoting? And is Ninjago included in it? Or is this your headcannon?

This is part of the Timeline me and Bobbricks are working on to bring every single non-licensed Lego theme into one Universe. These are from Knights Kingdom I and II, Pharaoh's Quest, and Fright Knights. If you haven't seen it already, here's the map of the continent where they live:

joshuad17.deviantart.com/art/A…

The planet that this continent is on is called Aurum, hence the title. Aurum has two continents: Astoria and Ninjago. Astoria is mostly a made up place, but it has a few places that are actually canon to Lego, like Morcia (Knights Kingdom II) and Astor City (Ultra Agents). Here's a map of modern Astoria:

joshuad17.deviantart.com/art/M…

And because a lot of the Lego themes take place in space, here's a map of the entire galaxy:

I hope this helps. Sorry I didn't explain further; I can literally go on for hours about all the details. If you have any specific questions, I could answer them, though.

Leo and Basil are the ones I find looking the coolest

All are slick, though.
