LCC-Garheim Angus braves the storm.

Postby Brother Steven » Tue Mar 13, 2012 2:55 pm

Angus and his squire Erik were out hunting with a bearhound when a blizzard burst upon them. They quickly erected a hut from branches and saplings to try to hold out against the elements.

The snowdrifts look great. Nice job!
Also like that you made a point to make the flags blow out in the wind. Simple detail that adds a lot.

Great work on this one Steven. Great idea and great implementation of it. You can really feel the cold and snowy wind blowing against the hut :D

Great job! It feels cold just looking at it, I think I'll have to up my thermostat now.
I like that you left the stumps from the trees they cut down and yea the flags are the icing on the cake

I do wish we could see what's happening inside, good to see you used a 'light up' brick for your fire but I was hoping to see how you used it inside.

It seems that snowy scenes are the popular Moc's these days, I may have to try one myself

Good job all around.. Very inspiring!

The partially pressed tiles are great, as are all of the snow effects. This is one of the most realistic snow MOCs I've seen.

Great job. I really liked the "Natives" headdress piece that you used for the snow, especially in the tree on the left.

You sure set a high standard with this, Steven. You can really tell which way the wind is blowing, and created a great effect. Looks cold Image.
You would rather be building right now.
