Elemental Attack on Hradcanny

Postby soccerkid6 » Sun Jul 22, 2012 11:50 pm

This is my biggest build yet, it weights just over 11 and 1/2 pounds, it was made for Challenge IV over at GoH. The dragon is a ice elemental attacking a dwarven city's gatehouse. One of the requirement was to have a micro-scale background hence the mountain backdrop. My character and some of his men are helping the dwarves (they're the ones who aren't dwarves :P ) The buildings are all modular and the ballistas are functional: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZHiZ_eAAt8

Any comments or criticism welcome :D

Cool! I like the angled walls, and the fact that it's built into a cliff

This is great! Your building has a real 'fun-ness' to it. I like the sense of action, and the character design on all your figures. It's a great original idea and really well built. Great work!

@Medieval Guy: Thanks, though it's not really built into the cliff :wink:

@Tastymuffins: Thanks, the buildings are usually my favorite part to build :D

@andhe: Thank you, I try and make my builds easy to play with. It was fun making the different figs too, though you only see the backs of quite a few :roll:

Beautiful rock-scaping on this, and that elemental looks great!

Not to detract from the awesome MOC, but the name of your town reminds me of "Hard Candy" :tasty:

@Medieval Guy: From the picture I showed I can definitely see how you could have mistaken it.

@friskywhiskers: Thanks, the elemental is my first beastie, was a challenge for sure :D

@AK_Brickster: :lol: Glad you like the MOC :mrgreen:

That dragon elemental is very awesome and the ice effect is splendid. Also that the fort being build in the cliff is a nice feature. Awesome job, continue the good work and good luck GoH challange 8)

@mencot: Thanks! I'm sure there will be entries in the GoH challenge that will blow mine out of the water but I'm getting better every time :eyebrows:

@Hayden: Thank you, I was pretty happy with the tail :D

Very cool*. I especially like the creature, though I'm not sure there ought to be an articulation in the middle of the torso like that. The rest of it looks great, though.

*Pun not intended . . . much. :wink:

@Azaghal: :lol: Without the articulation in the torso it looked too static for my tastes :roll: glad you like the build :D
