Hey All,

Here is one for the Legends category. It depicts Sir Gawain as he arrives at the Green Chapel to fulfill his promise to the Green Knight.

Bah, showoff ;)

Simple but effective landscaping. I really like those trees. Smaller than Sava's or Nelson's monsters but they are on a realistic level even for those who don't have hundreds of leaves.

I would have chosen an helmet with a visor for the Green Knight though (a pity those pointed ones don't come in green) since I think seeing his face makes him much less intimidating. I do realize that would have destroyed the purpose of this MOC though ;)

Very well done. The lanscaping is great, and it conveys a sense of roughness in the terrain. The green helmet and Euro armour are definitely things I envy.

Very nice job on the landscaping! The green knight is nice, but the landscaping is what kicks it up a notch. Good luck!

I like the landscaping, and i like that you used such a large number of 'flower base' pieces....it creates a believable realistic grassy area! Good job!

Nice landscaping. The Chapel kinda reminds me of Hobbit holes.

Josh, I love your "grassy knoll" -- now I won't even bother to attempt an exterior! But feel free to Photoshop in my Green Knight...

It's always green with you! That's O.K.it's my faviourite colour too and the great MOC more than makes up for it. I must admit I pictured the scene differently but your interpretation evokes a lot of interest. Good work and God Bless,

Very nice - for me the Green Chapel is the jewel in the crown of this creation. I really like the landscape as well.
