CCCX ILL Advised Journey - Run Away!

Postby shmails » Sun Nov 25, 2012 6:51 pm

This is an entry into the CCCX Ill Advised Journey Category:


While at the Shady Fox Tavern a while back, a few BCC warriors overheard a story about a city lost to the sands. The man spoke of treasures, magical weapons, and the fact that the desert would never allow anyone to leave with them alive.

The men decided that this journey was worth the risk and set out into the desert along the road to nowhere. After days of following the road, they happened across some ruins, the first sign of life in some time. They searched for the treasure but found none.

What they did find was an unguarded nest of Giant Gray Hawk eggs. Then, who had not eaten in more than two days, decided to make a feast of the eggs and began collecting them. When out of the sky came a horrible scream, and the Giant Hawks decended on the men.

While running for their lives, they understood the warning of the tale they heard!




Loads more, larger pictures here:

This was a really fun build. The hawks are inspired by the new creator set that will come out next year.

The desert landscape is very well done, and the cracked road looks fantastic. I love the bit where the sand is spilling over the broken rail.

Those birds are awesome, and as Medieval Guy said, the undulating sand is a nice touch.

Very impressive build! Quite different than what you think of as a castle MOC but all the cooler for that.
The decaying road is excellent as are the sand dunes, the best part though (in my humble opinion :wink: ) are the giant hawks :)

As others mentioned, I like the drifting sand spilling over into the road in places. I also liked the spilled egg near the nest. Nicely done! Good luck in the contest!
