New Era of Weapons

Postby mpoh98 » Tue Oct 01, 2013 3:12 pm

2013 MocOlympics Round 2:
Matthew Oh verses Chris Stone and his awesome entry.

Category: Brains vs. Brawn
What unfolds when athletes and geeks go head to head? Or should I say, arm to head? Build us a battle of mind verses muscle. Who do you think would win?

Hey all,
Just barely got an entry in! Built it all today (except for the base) after church. Yeah, busy week and 1/2 of school and life (and also a different Avalonia backstory build, will post that soon).

If you don't know how it relates to the category, basically, the "Brawn" is the castle, super thick, and impregnable (or they think). But then came along a new era of weapons, with the Chinese alchemists inventing gunpowder, and along came cannons and guns ("Brains").

So I tried new techniques, with using new pieces I got. A big inspiration was Mark Erickson and his (LCC) Restoring Justice creation. Thanks Mark! :D

Pretty cool. I know you were a bit of a rush, but I kinda wish you could see the rumble inside the broken bits of the wall. Hope you do well in the competition! :)

Thanks Aeridian! Great idea, if I would have had more time, then maybe. Thanks!
