[COR Jun FB1] Macuahuitl Craftsman, Myzectlan

Recommended Posts

Before the arrival of Corlander explorers in Myzectlan, the Myzec had very little skill in working metal. Apart from some primitive copper spear and arrow heads, most of their bladed weapons used prismatic blades made of obsidian or stone. The macuahuitl is the favoured melee weapon of most Myzec warriors. It is a large wooden club embedded with wicked obsidian blades along two edges. The obsidian is razor sharp, although being brittle it is extremely fragile. Even the best made macuahuitl require the blades to be changed regularly. Here a craftsmen specialising in the production of macuahuitl displays his wares to a warrior looking for a replacement weapon.

I had a sudden urge this morning to build something Myzec so I threw this together as a result. It was nice to be inspired to build something again - hopefully the feeling will last! I am experimenting with a piece of yellowish card behind this build so that the white bricks aren't washed out (one of my greatest photography issues). I think it worked well... Will be licensed as a small artisan in Myzectlan.

Lovely little build.  Nice colors, the building is simple but interesting, and that tree is nice as well.  :classic:

Beautifully done - the irregular base and tree are fantastic, and the theme is great!  The only thing I would suggest is to change the dark bley round plates to trans-black/brown pieces if possible, since obsidian is generally translucent black volcanic glass.  Just a thought ...

There's something funny about the shape of that tree. :pir-laugh:  Really cool little shack!  Kinda wish you had mixed one more color in with the tan ground, but it's a great little build.

I like the roof technique, and ofc the base, which looks really good.

A simple MOC, but it works really well. I love the allround color combinations. The lime green gives it a proper exotic feeling.
