Saturday's MOC; Viking v.s Viking

Post by Axel on Sat Aug 30, 2008 6:29 am

I built this MOC to illustrate a real Viking fighting a few 'Fantasy' Vikings. That is to say; ones with horns on their helmets against one without.

In the cold and freezing lands of Iceland, a group of horn-wearing Vikings appear. Summoned by an evil power from the realm of Fantasy, their job is to wipe out all real Vikings and replace their image. However, they do not go unoticed. A real Viking sees them, and he gets ready to fight. Hefting his shield in one hand, the Viking prepares to hurl his spear at the band of enraged fake Vikings.

An Overview


The real Viking


Fakies

No minifigures; my attempt at a snowy effect


Rocky landscaping


The minifgures. Hornless helmet, spear, shield from BrickForge.



Thanks for looking at my second last MOC for IceWolf Week!

It looks very good. The white with rocks look like at traditional battlezone. But out of Lego! The true viking looks good and so do the rest.

Thanks guys, the snow was really an instinctive thing; I built it as I went along! The rocky landscaping was a last minute thing, I thought it looked rather plain, so I added it.

This was a pretty fun vig to make. I started it, but didn't finish it until three days later! I might turn away from making ships and start making more vignettes.

Strange concept, and nice use of the white 1x3 curves for snowdrifts. Smile

Yeah they're actually relatively easy, but ships are also fun to make...
