Here are some first pictures of my redo of the classic set Camouflage Outpost with Autumn colors and Elves. I wasn't happy with the lighting, but I wanted to show off the Autumn leaves from Alt Brick and give it elven minifigs, which is what I wish Lego would do if they ever decide to revive this sub-theme. I love the leaves and although LEGO might be going the route of a bigger color palette, they waited just a little bit too long for my liking.

Looking good!

I love the Forestman theme, since one of my two first sets ever (purchased on the same day I got the Blacktron Alienator) was the Forestman's Hideout.

Wow! I love those, and yes ... I will need to grab some. Could you PM me the addy to find these guys please. I may very well want these for my Hobbitville ... have a fall setting, with a 'warm spring' creating a summer oasis ... :o)

This looks really cool as a Fall layout; and the Elves look sweet with their weapon upgrades.

Thanks for the comments. I am experimenting with different color combos and the same model. Orange w/Medium Tan, Yellow w/Medium Tan, and Dark Red w/Brown look nice together. Here is a shot with the black light, and the Yellow really stands out.

For a second, I thought you had glow in the dark leaves. I was quite jealous. Still a bit jealous, but not as maddeningly so.

Hehe, I am going to suggest that color to Alt Bricks. I wanted to mention that the colors might be slightly off to official colors (yellow and Tan being most noticeable), but I think it is more than acceptable. It is after all foliage and that in itself is usually not a perfect solid color.
