CCCXI - Accidents Happen

Postby cmaddison » Fri Nov 29, 2013 9:38 am

The royal engineer had just acquired plans for the newest style of catapult, and had armory soldiers constructing a prototype. There seemed to be a slight problem in the crossbeam design.
Built for the Trial and Error category.

Whether or not you were going for a darkly comical scene, I think it looks amazing! Love the architecture and the uneven roof, and the catapult (technical term escapes me...) design is brilliant.

I think this build is great! I love the flooring with masonry bricks and the figs facial expressions are priceless!
I would love to see a finished version of that catapult! It looks awesome. :D

Happy Building

:lol: Awesome build! As funny as the scene is, the building is what gets me; great architecture around the windows and that roof section looks great! The look on the designer's face :twitch:

The setting has a really creepy, dark vibe too it. I adore the Boromir figure. He is great. The way you have the catapult and the guy underneath are a great touch. Fantastic concept and brilliant execution!

Thanks guys! I was going for a dark humor vibe, but had to play it totally straight for it to work. Didn't want to ham it up too much. :)
