MOC Speed Contest Round 3: Dwarven Stronghold
About this creation
Hello all, and welcome to round three of the MOC Speed Contest. This round I received the category of "Mini knights, ho! Build a microscale Medieval scene - castle, village, whatever!" I decided to build a Dwarven fortress on a snowy mountain. This is very much inspired by Blake Baer's brilliant micro-scale castle, WarScape.




Diagonal view.



A band of nomadic barbarians have set up camp at the base of the mountain.



Forward view. The textured tower is one of my favourite parts, and it's actually built upside down to accommodate the curved lightsaber hilts.



The lake is feed by a river that leads from the Dwarven citadel.



Bailey The Protector nobly guards the castle.



Somewhat of a bird's eye view. A statue of an ancient Dwarven king sitting upon his throne is depicted in front of the upper courtyard.

Thanks for viewing!

One of the finest microscale castles I've seen. Excellent detail, very clean and realized.

Very neat, nice thinking on using those diagonal pieces for the walls. You've also done quite a nice job with the stream, and the viking camp is a nice touch.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera I REALLY like this build! It's so clean and well built! I love the way you depicted the litle settlement at the bottom of the mountain. It looks like they've let their fire get out of control though lol
Ah, yes... Those barbarians aren't very good with fire!

That is a beautiful Micro build! This is one of the categories I have always avoided....probably because of the quality of ones like this! I just don't think I could compare.

Really cool, I love the use of lightsaber hilts; I could easily tell by all the details that it was a dwarven establishment. ;) Best of luck in the contest!

This is a lovely build. You have done a great job at creating many different shapes and angles in the stone castle. My eyes can travel from detail to detail and not get bored. I enjoyed looking and hope you continue on.
