About this creation
2014 MocAthalon
Team: Young Guns.

Hi everyone,

Here's my entry into the MocAthalon for the story tower category. It depicts one of the first adventures of the famous knight, Launcelot. I hope you enjoy!


Our story starts with Launcelot, know at that time only as "The White Knight," journeying in search of adventure.




He arrives at an imposing fortress, known as "The Dolorous Guard," ruled by the cowardly Copper Knight.



Keen on challenging him, Launcelot fights and defeats 20 knights, only to discover that the Copper Knight has fled.



With the help of the inhabitants of the castle, Launcelot discovers his name and makes the fortress his home, naming it, "The Joyous Guard."




Bonus pictures:







I really like how this wall turned out.



I think the stained-glass window turned out well. It does look a lot better in the sun. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good picture of it.



And the tower again.


Well, this was quite fun. I've always really enjoyed building vignettes and this gave me a good opportunity to do so.

Please let me know what you thought of the forced-perspective with the micro-fig. It's really hard to do FP on such a small base, so I tried a different scale fig.

Thanks for viewing everyone, and have a great day!

~Mark

What I really like about this build is that each section displays different building techniques and styles - wonderful!

Masterfully done, Mark! The top level's river and left tree look really good, and while I think the tan in path is distracting and the right tree a little blocky, it's a fine scene nonetheless. The second level looks great - clouds, hills, castle, microfig - nice work! The fourth is also really neat, with the pillars and stained glass window. But my favorite has got to be the third level, with that awesome texturing! Great application and positioning of pieces!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 your fp was done very well technically, but, it s near impossible to have a perfect effect without entirely filling the background, it works best with big scenes, [check my Metal Legion folder] all scenes where impeccable, and translated well what you meant, my fav however is the tainted glass one, well done!
I have to agree with you. Thanks a lot for the feedback and advice!

I think small builds on 8x8 plates are my favorites. And this one has the extra bonus of having layers! Nice detailing on the wall and nice color pattern on the window! :)
