This was my entry to Book II Challenge I (Battle for Nocturnus) over at the Guilds of Historica!
About this creation


Dear Narthok,

Sorry to keep you waiting, but I've been supervising the work on repairing a fortress. The sides are really heating up, and it shall be full out war soon. We see spies of the Spire lurking everywhere, and the Drow are getting bolder and bolder. I'll try to keep you informed.

You would not believe the man who is lord of this crumbling fortress! He call himself the Watcher, even though he has no eyes. He wears antique armor, surely the relic of some long forgotten age. His warriors wear helmets over masks, and similar armor. The Watcher himself is a hulking man, or whatever species he is. I have certainly never seen anyone like him. He hasn't said anything about the origin of himself or the tower, but there are runes inside that speak of him, runes that must be hundreds of years old!

Even though the Watcher and his crew are an unsightly bunch, I'm fine, as I'm stationed with a good group of Orcen-folk. Several different bands, but they're all good folk and soldiers.

I'll write you again soon,

Garthonkk





Here's some detail shots. ;)



Ruined bit, how'd that skull get there...



The orc writing the letter.



One of the Watcher's watchmen.



Here he is... The Watcher! This guy is one CREEPY fig.



A crypt type thing. The idea of using poor Han is from A P. :)



Orcs! Two different tribes here. ;)



Carrying weapons for the war effort. For Nocturnus!



Full build!





Tower itself.



The Watcher and company. ;)



Personally, I love the wall textures. :)



Light-up function! :D

Creator's Comments:

So, this was build for The first challenge of the Book II over at GoH. The second book will all be focused on civil wars, one in each guild (except Nocturnus, which gets two). The two side for the first were The Black Spire and good ol' Nocty. Everyone randomly got assigned a side (except those whose home guild was Nocty, they got to pick), and I got Nocturnus. So... This is my build. My favorite yet!

Everyone should join GoH ; it's great!

I love this build, hope you do too! :D

Very cool build. I have to say though, I think my favorite part might be the orc carrying all the swords. It's just a really cool detail.

Quoting Ryan Kayton Once again a truly brilliant build! But I have to ask; how do you get this many building parts and how on earth could you afford all of it?
Thanks Ryan! The parts? Honestly, I've just kind of gathered them. I do Pick-a-Brick about once every 1 or 2 months, and I've made two Bricklink orders. Those two things got me pretty much all I need. ;)
Quoting ~ Brick Very nice work Toa, not your best though.
Thanks! I still think it's my best. I dunno I liked my tower too...

Quoting --R.K. Blast-- Wow! Sweet work! I love the shaping and personally I think the colours all work rather well! --Blast--
Thanks a ton RK!
Quoting Halhi 141 I never said the colors were out of place, I said there were too many... At a second look it's a bit better, but I don't think it's your best - I liked your R1 tourney intro and your UC Preparing for Winter MOCs better...
OK, well thanks for the critique. ;)

Quoting Gilbert Despathens I've been wondering when you would share this with MOCpages.
Thanks Gibert! I wanted to make this a FB for LOM, but I didn't want edit pics and write a stry. ;)

Thanks!

Yes it is. :)
Quoting Michael K. Wonderful detail an color, you're a great builder!
Thanks so much1
Quoting David FNJ The textures flow so well! It's not too much, and it's not too little! Excellent!
Thanks!
Quoting Stephen Boe Oh yes, awesome work! I love the use of those log bricks, I'm going to be getting ninety light/dark bley of those in a BL order.
Thanks Stephen!

Quoting Mark McPeek Fantastic work! The texturing has got to be my favorite part!
Thanks Mark! Mine too. ;)
Quoting Lindel Baskin Epic! The castle is truly fantastic. The architecture is top-notch, and you've captured the ruinous look perfectly. The minifigs look great as well, I especially like the Watcher. Excellent work!
Thanks Lindel!
Quoting Dr. Monster Very cool MOC. Great castle and detailing. The Watcher is an excellent fig.
Thanks so much!

Thanks Alex! :)
Quoting Graham Gidman Wow, simply stunning! Great work, Toa!
Thanks!
Quoting Halhi 141 Hmm.. Pretty good, but something seems a bit "off". I think with the excess of colors it's just too visually busy, maybe if you took away some of the dark bley on the walls (and instead did the texturing with light bley mainly) and took away most of those colors on the ground, it could be better. So a pretty good build, but not your best IMO.
Hm, I still think it's my best. The only color that MIGHT be out of place is the dark red leaves...
Quoting Nathan Pownell Nice! This is epic!
Thanks! :D
