Armory and Sword tournament of Arod Mearas

Every three years a large festival is held by the Green Riders at Arod Mearas in honour of the goddess Epona (patron goddess of the Green Riders).
Main events are the horse races, but also Sword and Archery tournaments are held. For the prestigious sword tournament the best Sword fighters from all over Historica and even other far away lands are invited to participate. The Sword Master of the Green Riders is the referee for the tournament.

This year Queen Iladriel of the Elves is invited as special guest.

Behind the Sword Tournament ring is the Armory.

Above the armory some rooms for Green Riders can be found.

This build is  my entry for the Champion of Avalonia title. It’s not exactly a joust, but jousting is not really something for Kariny. Sword fighting however is totally her thing, and of course she competes in the Sword tournament. Here you see her beating her opponent in the finals and winning the tournament!

Kariny has her room above the Armory. That room is more or less her home, when she is not on a mission for the Green Riders.  Her white cat ‘Ghost’ always sleeps on her bed. When Kariny is on a mission the Sword Master takes care of her cat.

This is very Avalonian! A better and updated version of one of the buildings in MMV! I like all the details you put in the MOC! The stands for the crowd is great!

I can see your custom shields in the armory!  :classic: Looks great!

Love the idea, layout and build. The details in the crowd are particularly nice, as are the bollards on the arena fencing. Very Avalonian and you have done an excellent job of conveying the excitement of the moment in your build. Great all round!

Thanks for all you nice comments !
I wanted to try something different for the roof, and I am very happy with the result of combining tiles with the slopes on top.

Not a big fan of custom, but it does suit avalonia very well! I also like the idea of a small tournament :thumbup:

A splendid Avalonia countryside moc. You are getting better and better at these scenes with every moc. This is a great scene, I like the idea and you have succeeded in creating a nice detailed interior with all the weapons and armor. Great work on the sword fight, it looks good and exciting with all the spectators. Great work!
