Journey to Camelot . This little creation was made for a contest over at Classic Castle. This is my very very first attempt at Microscale and not going to lie I love the way it turned out. . This creation is a microscale creation of King Arthur's court at Camelot. Just for a heads up, there are no figs in this so don't be looking or criticizing about how empty it looks. Putting microfigs would completely ruin the atmosphere of the Microscale I was trying to achieve. I hope you enjoy it. Following legend these ruins are where the wizard Merlin studied astrology and astronomy. The causeway out to the island is destroyed and crumbling. The ships design was rather hard to think of. I wanted the sails and I wanted the general shape of a ship and I think I did rather well. This angle was mainly for the water coloring. This is a creation that is better seen in real life. This village is pretty cozy. Perhaps one of the more frustrating parts because of the roofs this was kind of hard to set up. The Church was a big pain because of the steeple. The dock is one of my favorite parts to this MOC. I just love the symmetry of the rods as logs. The use of those dark green trees is kind of quirky. But Hey! If it is legit for Adam Tucker it works for me. You can also see the other parts of the ruins. On the right we can see a flock of sheep in pasture. The dead tree idea was a fairly experimental process. I had wanted a space filler without it having to be the standard Green tree. This musket pistol and hands gave me the perfect palette to use. I couldn't resist throwing in a little beach. I tried to take as much shots from fig eye view as possible. Here is the main inspiration for the model, the rare, the elusive, the novel, 1/6 of a stud offset! This was derived from some table scraps experiments. Not sure what the pearl gold stud is. Perhaps it is just a little fountain/statue. The cypress trees were a little last minute addition. Here is a shot of the multilevel madness of Camelot. It is fairly weak due to the 1/6th stud offset but it held for pics so that is good. I love the use of the hands as chairs. This model is not built to the standard microscale scale, namely a cylinder would be a minifigure. Thankfully due to my creators block on the title this table idea brought forth the Legend of Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. This is probably the biggest pain second to the Church. All the chairs kept coming loose. This cathedral was a last minute addition. I had actually planned on creating a cathedral but when I got the design of the table I knew my idea. Still I threw in the cathedral just for kicks and giggles. Not altogether certain what caused the use of short legs as pews. But I don't not like it. I suppose in some abstract way the essence of the pews are there. Also I dedicate the window at the end to a good friend of my Katie Walker. If you want crazy art with cheesers go check her out. I purposely put a band of old grey into the bley mix just to throw a little design into it. Very subtle detail. Here is a shot of the 1/6 stud offset. Hardcore in a nutshell. Well fellas there she is. As I said before this is my first attempt at Microscale. I had a blast and learned a lot. Thanks to the chaps over in CC for hosting the contest. God Bless, Blake
