[WZ9, G7 - Desert King] Skirmish by the Oil Pump

Recommended Posts

Having build a watch tower directly on the oil road, brave Desert King soldiers were able to defeat a non-surprise attack by Ulandus troops:

Oil kept flowing throughout the skirmish...

And the overview showing where the tower was built on the road:

Thanks for looking!

If I should win, I chose H6.

I like the roadbed...it looks rough and worn. We've all seen those hats used before but it looks particularly good here; the shape and black color truly looks like oil, whereas the blue hats don't really look like water. The "oil" on the ground looks perfect, reflecting the surroundings just like the real stuff would. The tower looks hastily erected - an intentional depiction I suppose? I must get one of those Incredible Moving Cactus - maybe it's a soldier in disguise! No, seriously, the green color is unique and I don't think I've seen the bush in that color, either. The scorpion is a nice colorful touch as well. As for the action, well, it looks kind of lopsided. The face-down soldier pose looks very natural and it looks like his comrade is about to join him. Good job overall and keep on building! (Not that you really need the encouragement...)

Very nice creation. I really like the way you made the ground with the tan and dark tan parts. Furthermore the tower looks great, too :thumbup:

Yepp. I figured that - in the middle of "nowhere" the DK troops would just have limited supply of wood, etc.

If the tower is meant to be a makeshift build, you hit it spot on.

I really like the saturated colors and the expressions on the figures are brilliant!

Thanks all!

Definitely makeshift - probably containing prefab parts!

:laugh:

Neat desert landscape and I like the little watchtower :thumbup:

Is that Emmet's head on the HC soldier?
