Raid of Scone
AS SEEN AT BRICFAIR 2011. In a break from my normal American history, I decided to branch into Scottish history, particularly the revolution led by the bonnie Wallace himself.
About this creation

The attack on the English held city of Scone was in the beginning of William Wallace's career as a rebel. The city of Scone was very important because Scone was where all Scottish Kings were crowned and the English would not let them crown a king so long as it was held by the British. In effort to put the rightful king on the throne, William Wallace assaulted and took the City of Scone in 1271 I believe.(Not sure that is the correct date but it just rings with me.)







This is probably my favorite picture of the bunch. Especially like how it is focused on my signature minifig...







I tried to set the country scene in a wheat field but unfortunately due to the small amount of "wheat" that I have, I had to make it look cut and sheaved. And yes, the minifig legs are stalks of wheat. It looks much better in a bigger scale, trust me : )















The water technique here was also a first time experiment. I used 1x2 trans tiles and then didn't press them in the entire way to give them the uneven movement appearance.







This roof was really hard, and at Brickfair, a part always kept falling off but it looks good and I'm not complaining too loudly because this was my first time using this technique.















There he is gents, the great William Wallace himself, posing for the picture.



I particularly like this picture because you can see the faces of the attacking Scotsmen which I spent a lot of time on mind you.



Unfortunately because I was building this for Brickfair, I was rather pressed for time. I barely managed to complete this and my tornado before the deadline, but I had to skimp on some things, like the interiors.








Thanks for viewing and as always, criticism/suggestions/praise/comments are very much welcome and appreciated.

Soli Deo Gloria,
Blake Baer

Outstanding creation. I especially like the two roof techniques. Lots of attention to detail, so it depicts the story well. I wish I could see this in person! Great work!

Wow, very good Blake! I am a descendant of "the bonnie Wallace" so I love seeing him honored in one of my favorite medias (lego, of course). Also, how did you get Williams's sword? It looks to be a Brickarms claymore, which is an excellent mold, but it is in a different color! Where did you get it?

Saw the movie Braveheart for the first time weeks ago. I loved it! "But if I were William Wallace, I would shoot lightning at them from my eyes, and fire balls from my arse! I am William Wallace!" -Braveheart :D

An interior would make this already-awesome MOC even better. You really seem to have a gift for really nice roofing. I love the one made of fins.

Awesome. Everything looks great. The interior could have had maybe a few chairs and tables. The rarer colors were used perfectly. Keep it up!

Nice detailing, the water and roof more than make up for the lack of an interior. :)
