Very good build, and I like what you said about him being a dictator. Same as a character I'm going to introduvce soon will be called a pirate a lot, but he says he's not, and he'll break a beer bottle over the head of anyone who says anything about it. Anyway, again, great build! Good story as well. Lucy sounds interesting. I think you've got eveyone's attention with that now. Keep it up!
I like the story. :P My only real critique on the build is the war table: the pattern on the stone edges is too choppy and bends in too well with the mini landscape. A flat table would look better. But the rocks, pillars, layout, everything - great work!
