Custom Heroica Lands

Recently, I've explored the world of Heroica.  The different Heroes found in the sets reminds me of the different Classes in most medieval MMORPGs, such as the mighty Warrior (represented as the Axe-wielding Barbarian hero), and the powerful Mage (represented as the Wand-toting Wizard hero.)
I was inspired by the LEGO Heroica sets to build two small custom lands for Heroica.

Heroica: Desert of Despair

In the Desert of Despair, giant golden scorpions (level 2) lurk in the ruins of an ancient civilization.

Heroica: Seldaan Market

In the Seldaan Village Market, Heroes can take a break from fighting monsters and chill with other heroes.  Behind a fortified gate is the Cauldron of Refilling, where Heroes can replenish used potions.

Steam-tank Transport Train

Steam-tank Transport Train
Originally uploaded by Bricknave

During the Great Coal Shortage in the Steampunk Universe, various military organizations scrambled to control coal mines. In order to dispatch combat vehicles at a faster rate, lighter Steam Tanks were created, along with a railway transport system so the fuel source of the combat vehicle wouldn't be depleted. The engines of the transport trains were given an enhanced internal boiling system that reduced waste. Unfortunately, transport trains became targeted by enemies of the military organization the trains were affiliated with, so the combat vehicle cargo would have to be unloaded and reloaded at different intervals.
