>>PROJECT 12<< Fright Knights
About this creation
Welcome to the >>PROJECT 12<< build for April, 2014! The theme for the build of this (or rather, last) month was Fright Knights.

OK, now you might be wondering what >>PROJECT 12<< is. Well, it is a yearlong project of mine in which I make a Moc based on a non-licensed Lego Theme every month. Anyone can join the Group and vote on which themes those will be. The process is explained in more detail there, and if it sounds interesting, feel free to take a moment and vote on which theme my Moc for May will be based on.

So, this time, it was Fright Knights. It was a close decision, since the original vote ended in a three-way tie, and the tie-breaker ended the same way. In the end, I opted to choose the theme of which I owned the most Minifigures.

See if you can find bats, a crystal ball, and a chain. Those are elements that were introduced with Fright Knights (according to Brickipedia), so I tried to include them.



I chose to make a tower surrounded by a fiery landscape, including some sort of lava river. (Sorry about the bad editing on this photo, it was the main reason that I didn't make that the main picture).



This is where the action is happening. Basil the Batlord is defending the tower against a dragon with two knights and an archer backing him up. I think that the dragons and the Fright Knights fight against one another, but correct me if I am wrong.

Artistic Shot of the Battle #2 (or 1.2)



The knights.



The Landscape figless. This dio is 34 by 38, making it my largest (decent) diorama to date. usually they would be 34 by 34. Please also note that this might not be that big of a Moc for some people, more like a Bignette, but for my collection it is a diorama.



The river. It is hard to tell in the picture, but I tried to create an illusion of depth by putting two colors beneath the trans red, yellow at the banks and red towards the middle.



A closer picture of the tower.



Willa the Witch, watching the battle from her safe location at the top of the tower.



The courtyard.



The wall to the left of the tower.



What's this?



A play feature!!!



The interior of the first floor of the tower. It is a bit bare, but it was a rush job...



The doors to open, although I put in way too many hinges. Consequently, you have to remove the front panels in order to actually open the doors.

Interior of the second level. Again, pretty bare, but I don't really care, since people won't be looking at it that much. It could be a prison cell, right?



Third level. At last, some decoration!



And the back of the top of the tower...



...which comes off!



As does the third level.



Artistic shot from the tower #2



The other wall.



You didn't...



Yes, the exact same thing as the other wall. Another play feature (I mean, it wouldn't be authentic without play features)!

Fourth Wall: (this is the first occurrence of those two words together in one of my Mocs)
So, I was a bit disappointed by all my >>PROJECT 12<< Mocs so far. The first one was good, but it didn't really capture the feel of the theme very well. In the second one I just basically used the minifigs of the theme in what could have been a scene from a bunch of themes. In the third one I tried to imagine what the next wave of the theme might have looked like, which worked well, but the Moc itself was a bit lacking. So this time, I tried to do exactly the opposite of what I did in my first Moc for >>PROJECT 12<<: Instead of taking a set from the theme and changing it to look more up-to-date, I made an original Moc that tried to capture the feel of the theme as closely as possible. The result was a lot better than my previous >>PROJECT 12<< Mocs.

I was not alive when Fright Knights was released, and got the minifigures for christmas when I was around six years old. So of course, I didn't know a lot about Fright Knights, and the first thing I did when setting out to build a Fright Knights Moc was to look up Fright Knights on Brickipedia, reading about the backstory, using the images there to piece together the minifigs, and noting the Fright Knight color scheme. I also watched the commercial and saw that Fright Knights was set in some kind of fiery plain. Then, I started building. The first thing I made was the walls around the tower and the gates, then moving on the the landscape, and then finally the tower. I used up almost all of my orange and definitely all of my red plates, and since most of my gray plates were used up in another Moc, I then had little material left for the tower and couldn't make it as detailed as the walls. I rushed the tower so that I could get it done, but it was fun to (for once) build without a specific end result in mind and without worrying about adding any details. Nonetheless, if anyone feels like giving me a detailed rundown of this Moc (which I know some people like to do), don't critique the tower, because I know I could have done better.

Well, that was a long fourth wall... My longest, probably. But also my shortest, since none of my Fourth Walls before were officially marked as Fourth Walls...

I hope you liked it! And don't forget to check the Project 12 Group and vote on the theme for the May Moc of >>PROJECT 12<< !

Quoting LegoPredator ! I�m glad you decided to build Fright Knights moc. I really wanted to see moc on this theme. I think you did good job. The lava river looks great. Also I like the wall and gate. I�m jealous of the dragon. I plan to build castle with knights and dragon but I don�t have any dragon in my collection. I�ll have to build him with bricks.
Well, brick-built dragons sometimes look a lot more impressive than the one I used... Stormbringer has a lot of good examples.
