Hello folks! Some of you may remember all that way back to my previous Batman Castlefied vig, Here.

Now is a new one I've cooked up, The Dark Knight versus the Strawman!
Posted Image

After the brewer of fear escaped from Arkham Dungeon, The Dark Knight set out to hunt him down:
Posted Image

Following a trail into the wheatfields, he finds some Jack'O'Lanterns containing the Strawman's fear witchcraft:
Posted Image

As the night is dark, the evil Strawman prepares to strike the Dark Knight with his scythe!
Posted Image

Will the Dark Knight remain triumphant?
Posted Image

Comments appreciated, especially on my using tan log pieces for wheat fields  :classic:

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

Great job Batbrick, yet again you have transmogrified Batman villains into their medieval counterparts! :laugh: I love how you've done The Scare- er, Strawman, with his fort of hay! :laugh: Too bad the Dark Knight didn't bring a flaming torch. :grin:

Awesome vig! I love it! :grin:

Was this during the World War II era?

Great vig, Batbrick  :laugh:

Great medievalisation of the Batman characters, the bat helmet is perfect  :sweet: And the tan logs work very well as wheat fields. I'm not so sure about the part on which the pumpkins are lying  though - is that wheat as well? Nevertheless, great action poses, and the rat is a nice addtion.

Nice work, I hope to see more of these great Bat-Castle vigs   :wub:

Great work! The tan log pieces work well for the wheat field and give a nice vertical look to the overall vig, just like real wheat would. The switching of the scarecrows wizards hat to the straw mans other cap is well done. What about a line up of you medievil batman minifigs before castle month ends?

Thanks iamded! I was actually going to give him a flaming torch at first but decided against it when I realised he might kill him, when Batma- er, The Dark Knight doesn't kill  :wink:

Much appreciated TinyPiesRUs, I'm glad you like it. I'm very happy that the tan logs worked too. The part out front is supposed to be wheat, in retrospect I should've just put a small dirt line or gate there  :blush:

And I hope to make more!

Ahh... damn. I was planning to do something like this, slowly retalling the Bat-mythos in Castle style. Once again, AFOLs thinking alike, huh?

Anyway, a cool vig there Batty (look, you said you liked it, don't complain now), and worthy of an Elseworlds moniker I think.

Even if you did steal the idea right out of my head!  :laugh:

Nice vig Batbrick, another great Batman Dark Knight tale put into Lego. I love the way you did the wheat! :thumbup:  Isn't it convenient there was a barrel out there for the Strawman to jump off. :tongue: The pumpkins add a very scary atmosphere too, could this be the Dark Knights final outing? :oh3: (*insert creepy dramatic organ music*)

Once again, great work! :sweet:

Thanks dragonator, don't worry, the organ music was just for suspense. Yes, the barrel was very convenient, or he placed it there  :tongue:

Perhaps not strictly true but I'll let it slide. Anyway, I've decided to change my idea slightly, and I might as well share it with you now. I might see if I can recreate the history of the DCU in the Lego Castle period. From the Golden Age to now, via the main events and characters. Don't worry, I might call you in for some help along the line.

No, seriously.

Oh- excellent BB!  You know I love this horror stuff, esp. Jack'O Lanterns.  Clever use of the barrel.  I like the Strawman.  Is he an actual Batman villain or just a spin off from the Scarecrow.  In any case, nice vignette (or should I say... chilling...)

Very nice vig and very good use of those pieces and MFs, BatBrick :thumbup: It's perfectily fitted for the (already ending :cry_sad: ) Castle Month.
