Viva La Revolution!

Hey everybody!

After reading an old National Geographic article about the bicentnial of the French Revolution, I was inspired to do this moc. It was interesting to learn a little French history, considering I didn't learn much about that in the good ol' USA. It's loosly based on a painting depicting the execution of Louis XVI. Enjoy!

It is nicely done but a bit too cruel at me. That was a horrible way to die, specially when they were usually have to wach when the blade came and cutted he`s/She`s head. But at me it is ok

Good job! Nice work on the guillotine. I believe most soldiers were 'bluecoats' there but that's just a small detail.

For the rest it's a good MOC. Now I finally understand why Blackmoor changed his head, his previous one was cut off :pir_laugh2:

Very Nice! I really like how well the guillotine worked out. Does the blade actually go up and down?

Hehe, that's indeed a very very nice guillotine you have there!

However the soldiers you have there are bloody Redcoats! British used to hang their victims during that time...

But that's only a minor nitpick since the Lego Bluecoats are quite old (From 1989 to 1993) and I can fully understand if not everybody has them.

The overall look of your creation seems very appealing to me. :thumbup:

I would have used bluecoats but, I don't own any. Maybe one day. And unfortunatly the blade does not move up and down, Its just for looks.

thanks,

Nice one, I especially like the guillotine design! :thumbup:

I won't speak about all the historic errors and inconsistencies here, but there's something killing me every time I look at this topic's title, sorry :pir-grin: It's "VivE la Révolution!" "Viva" is spanish or portuguese :shark:

Edit: Ok, I just realized you thought it was a question :pir-laugh: What I tried to say that "viva" is actually a spanish or a portuguese word :classic:

Nice MOC. I like the entire layout. The redcoats look a little out of place to me but other than that it is nicely done.
