Category:Theft of a crown
This could have multiple interpretations, anywhere form actual crown stealing to a usurper.
When I first saw this category I was somewhat disappointed as it seemed fairly selective and plain. However, when I looked it over again and registered the multiple interpretations part I got flooded with ideas. Perhaps too many ideas. At first I wanted to do Julius Caesar, but after starting to build a Greco-Roman plaza I got bored very quickly, and just couldn't get motivated. I then turned to another Shakespearian piece, Macbeth, which I later realised had even stronger symbolism related to a crown. By this time I didn't have a whole lot of time, so this is the end product.
Nice choice of scene. The details are excellent everywhere, and the only part I would change is the border: While the transparent cheese part is nice, I think it would look better if the baseplates and the corners were opaque.
