This was originally going to be The Apocalypse according to Joel [one of my favorite prophets of the Old Testament] but it kinda morphed slowly. This is my rendition; you can see, however, there are a few details that can be found in the Book of Joel; the ground quakes, pillars of fire and the swarms of "locusts" [yes, they're ants, but pretend they're locusts!]

Keep in mind this is just another "quicky filler MOC." I'm no Brendan Powell Smith.  :wink:

A couple notes on the MOC; all of the rocky parts fit in together for a more realistic pattern. The red pillar is, of course, supposed to be blood [a surreal representation.] The moon/planets are stickers from the Discovery sets.

Thanks.  :classic:

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the Book of Joel? Is that in the Catholic bible?

Its part of the Old Testament, or the Tanach. Its part of as I know it "Divrieh HaYamomim" which is the later part of the prophets.

:blush: Whilst growing up I attended church with my family three times a week (:sick: for about 17 years of my life) I'm ashamed to say I still know very little about the Old Testament, The New Testament or the various versions thereof. So this is new to me.

Is a nicely constructed MOC. I love the effect used for the ground quakes.  :thumbup:
