Challenge V, Cat 2: Glade Titan

20 posts in this topic

Creaking along slowly through the Moruth Swamps, the Goblin's new waterborne siege engine makes it way to the front lines. Larger, stronger and more heavily armed than the first generation Siege Ship, it is formidable force in open water/ ship to ship combat.

I will admit, I skimmed through the Cat 2 entry requirements, and built this without taking pictures of it in construction. If the judges let me slide, great, if not I will promptly remove it from the category and build something else, just let me know. Thanks! And thanks for looking!

That spiky roof looks really good on this hulk of a siege engine, and the skeleton heads hanging out add a lot of character!  Excellent curves too! :thumbup:

Your swamp landscape as always is top-notch, and the boat is terrific, too. The spikes are what really sell me on it, though, like the others have already said. The dashes of olive and lavender among the green foliage look great, too.

A very formidable entry!  Love the spines on the roof, the interior is well done, and the archer ports pull it all together.

The large bows used for the hull give an amazing shape and texture :thumbup: Tremendous roof as well, using dishes is a really cool concept.

Would be quite frightening to come up against in battle :classic:

It's amazing to see how many of the dark green bricks you have.  I wish I had that number to build cool swamp water with!  I like the black horns in the dishes.  It looks like some sort of animal and very much what I'd imagine a goblin ship would look like.  I like the interior as well.  The vegetation gives a great swamp feel to it.  Well done!

Well, we know what you found on the Pick-A-Brick Wall... :laugh: Love the swamp, it is beautiful. The massive-looking bulky siege warship is great, the spiked roof is a wonderful addition. :thumbup:

Wow. That boat is really good, with all those spikes on it, but the dense foliage is also good.

awesome boat, Blufiji. I'm late to the party, so I can only second the others: the spiky look is great as well as the curves of the boat. Overall, I think you nailed the look of a goblin boat! :thumbup:

That is one beast of a boat! The spiky roof with those dishes looks absolutely perfect here, and the chains and other details add a lot to the goblin look. Excellent swamp plants too :thumbup:
