This MoC took me far, far too long to build (almost a year of very on and off building), but I'm very proud of it so I may as well show it off.

At first, I was just going to create a small part of a city, but I was enjoying the two factions in Kingdoms so much that I couldn't settle on just one to hold the city.  I suppose there could have been some kind of alliance or something...

... but who wants to bother with that?  If I had a siege, I could have fire and combat and blood, and all sorts of interesting things!  Also, I decided to throw in a time machine, because I fancied building some steampunk.

There are pictures below, but here's a video:

Invading army at the gates - note the beheading, falling head, and blood.

Fighting on the city walls - I considered having a siege tower here, but it proved too difficult and didn't leave enough room for the army on the ground.

Blacksmith's just inside the city wall

Duelling Wizards inside a magic shop - the frog on the floor was, once upon a time, another wizard.

Monks escape the burning church, taking a relic with them.  That stain glass window lights up with a powerforce light - you can see that in the video at the end of the post.

A busy inn, where they seemed not to have noticed the whole "fire and war" thing.

Wider shot of the back, including inn, townspeople rushing to defend the city, and stables.

Flickr Album, since a small selection of pictures can't really show it all.

It's demolished now, but comments and constructive criticism are always welcome!

Lots of action  :thumbup:  I like how you did the wall, and the interiors in the buildings look great! The landscaping inside the wall could use some 1x1 rounds and plates to break up the uniformity, similar to what you did outside the wall.
Keep on building  :classic:

Very nice build, I particularly like the monks!  :dhappy:  There is lots of attention to detail, and how did you do the stained glass? Was it a sticker?  :dwacko:

It's actually an old part from the first Knights Kingdom line, with King Leo, Cedric the Bull, etc.  I've always quite liked it, and having the powerforce light made it so much easier to properly use in an MoC.

Thanks!  I'd just learned how to properly combine fire pieces, so I got a bit carried away.

How much action here!
I like the sorcerer's attack outside the walls, and all those scenes of terrified people!  :devil:
Great work!  :wub:
