Part III ‘Clash with the Tabascans’ Cortés and his expedition left Cozumel, and by late March his armada anchored off of the coast of the Tabascan settlement of Pontonchan. Cortés took a group of small oared boats up the Tabasco River into the thick mangrove swamps. Hidden in the lush jungle lining the river were, seemingly, countless Tabascan Warriors armed with bows and spears. The warriors rushed the Spanish boats forcing the Conquistadors to fight back in waist deep water. Cortés lost a boot on his way ashore, but he managed to continue fighting and directing his troops. The Spanish organized once on land and managed to repel the waves of Tabascan Warriors until they finally retreated back into the overgrown jungle.

Tlahuicole was a war captain of the Tlaxcala, a tribe who lived adjacent to the Aztec Empire during the middle ages. Captured by the Aztecs, Tlahuicole repeatedly requested the honour of being sacrificed to the gods, but his legendary battle leadership meant instead that the Aztecs used him as a general in their army. Finally, the emperor granted his wish and he fought in a gladiator duel against 8 opponents, all of whom were disabled by the Tlaxcalan. However, he was eventually felled by the ninth, and sacrificed to the gods. In this scene the ninth warrior is the (fictional) Cipac, who manages to restore the honour of the Aztecs after a fierce duel. This is an entry for the Lego war group's 2016 competition - final duel category.
