American Revolutionaries ambush British scouts felling the way before the main British army making its way toward Albany, New York.  The battle was later called the Battle of Bennington.

Props to the ever-clever SlyOwl for the wall technique.

Wow, this is beautiful! I love the large amount of brown, and the setup with the trees in general is fantastic! The grass is a nice touch too.
Good luck! :pir-sweet: Those trees just rock!

Nice job!  Looks great as does all of your MOCs.  Clean and crisp!  I love it, but which battle of the American Revolution does this MOC depict?

It's not a specific battle, just a skirmish.

What a lovely scene.  I love the trees adn rocks, I am kind of wanting a dark background to give more of the jungle feel, but that's minor, I really likethis.

So much in fact.

Nice MOC! I like your trees and the jumping soldier :thumbup:
And frightened redcoats are also a nice thing to see. Good luck in the contest!

I've been around and MoCing, but I haven't been on Eurobricks.  I really should get more active around here.

Very nice trees! The idea of an ambush is also great, it's always nice to see something different.
Maybe you might want to change the blood of those soldiers dying in the front.
The cherrys can IMO be confused too easily.
Sill a great entry; as others have stated already, you have a fair chance to win.

Is it really that bad?  Maybe that's where he got shot or something like that...

I feel so sorry for that screaming british scout

maybe you should put a give the scouts pistols though. large guns like those would weigh the scouts down.
