Destruction of Kilfana's Roost
Posted 05 August 2012 - 05:57 AM
Kilfana's Island was not safe from the rampage of the elementals for the skies are home to wind elementals. Although there have been many a storm to harry the Isle, none was anything like the Cyclone they saw that day.
The winds grew violent as the cyclone arrived, and scoured across the island in great sheets of white turbulence
The smaller island was sheared off by the force of the wind, and the bridge and chains that had connected them were tossed about like leaves in autumn.
The tavern had been half full, but as luck would have it, the great Mage Lord Mirsk, the Sand Dervish, happened to be enjoying a cup of ale when the elemental hit!
Using his great powers, Lord Mirsk was able to summon up a cone of pure energy to protect him with gales that buffeted him, so that they would not toss him about as they had the batfolk.
The elemental wreaked great havoc upon the island, but luckily it has stayed aloft, high above the Mystic Isles.
This started out as a free build, which I converted into an entry for this challenge, since I thought the microbuild part of it would work very well. I apologize if it is hard to make out what is what, but I will be posting the "pre-destruction" pictures once the contest is complete. I hope you enjoy.

The tavern build though seems a bit under detailed to me. I suppose a good amount of it blew away!
See these MOCs and MORE in the Guilds of Historica!

The microscale is also superb, and adds to the uniqueness of your build

Z - that is exactly what I was woried about. I interpreted the destruction to be ruining the tavern, so half of the stuff has blown away, and other things have been mangled by the winds so it's hard to tell what is what - just like it would be after a real tornado.
Once I have posted the pre-destruction pictures it will make much more sense, but I can't post those until after the challenge since it's a one-scene contest. This was the reason I considered not using this build for this challenge, but I really liked the microscale concept.
Soccerkid - the cyclone started off very blocky, but as I kept adding and adding to it I started getting more of a spiral form to it and I'm really pleased with it now.

I like the whole idea behind the islands and the tornado- I think you pulled it off really well. The micro scale is great too, I like the fact that it is below, very cool

Gabe - I was trying to somehow visualize the winds flying about. I couldn't get the chains posed circularly in mid-air, so the tress were the only way I could show it. I realize that the wind gusts do look a bit too opaque and angular, but it was the best I could come up with.
