    [MOC] Another perfect day in space

    A Classic Space vignette by yours truly. I had a *lot* of fun making this, for sure - it's my first ever serious display scene, and I'm quite proud of it. What do you think? Check the album for more angles and detail shots, and check my signature for a more general-purpose Classic Space collection. Thanks for looking! ^u^
  2. ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix _____________________________ A little vignette about one of my favourite scenes from the Order of the Phoenix. Poltergeist Peeves wreaking havoc. His character never appeared in the films, to my regret, so it seemed only fair to give him a LEGO makeover, based on the video games' design for all you potterheads you get the reference, enjoy . Chandelier design inspired by the fantastic Xenomurphy (If you don't know his work, check him out, he's awesome!)

  3. Hello again! Thanks for stopping by! Here is my second moc for the Varlyrio Guild Challenge. It is for 1B Family and known associates. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Octavia... What can i tell you about her? I've defeated her pet kraken once. Nobody anticipated that! That is how i've got mer scar on mer face. I mertioned it earlier, if you were paying attention. I think she will never forget it, nor forgive it, but that is when we crossed currents for the first time, and later we managed to form a bond. A strange friendship i would call. Merbe more? She is an octopus lady or something, a daughter of Ceto. Scary creature of the deep. Like mer sisters... Did i mertion, she has eight legs? Strong, large, long, lime limbs, with sticky stuff on them. I believe its called suckers. Well, it sucks to be grabbed with those, i can tell you that! Squeezes you like you were a sponge on the waterbed. She was not friendly at first, and that is an understatement. So under, it's underwater. Utterly hostile, but nowadays she "tolerates" us. Mer, a little bit more. Her older sister Pri'Scylla is not like that, but she is getting there i presume. I'd like to. Until then, Octavia is the connecting link between our volk. We had our battles, and differences with the Children of Ceto, but these days there is a fragile truce between our people. Officially. Back to Octavia Oceana. That is her whole name by the way. Do not tell anyone, i told you! I will deny it! She would hug me to death with her tentacles. Not a bad death, but still a death. Anyway, she has long dark green hair like a garden of beautiful seaweeds. Eyes, as dark as the depths of the waters, a killer stare, which is one level less menacing than the petrifying gaze of her younger sister Echo. Alluring lips, pretty, but assertive face, with some shiny silverish lines all over it. She likes the deepest parts of Lorelei Loch. The ice cold water is her favourite. Not a big social... How do you dryskins say it? Social butterfly? She has a soft spot for abandoned places, especially ship wrecks of yours. Knows how to defend herself, but not a fan of fighting. Do you want to know more? Mer too!

    [MOC] Hogwarts secrets

    Last week, I've made a Harry Potter MOC. This MOC isn't based on a scene of the movies, books or videogames. Harry has discovered a secret room in Hogwarts. He have to turn the statue to find a secret book. Some pictures: 01_Hogwarts_secrets by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_Hogwarts_secrets by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 03_Hogwarts_secrets by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr This picture shows the playable function in this MOC: 04_Hogwarts_secrets by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr I hope you like this Harry Potter MOC :) Pictures also on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/organize/?start_tab=one_set72157674880114927
  5. Greetings! Thanks for stopping by! I would like to present my first varlyrian vignette. It is for the Varlyrio Guild Challenge 1A- Family Affairs- Who's in charge. Sorry, i do not have many bricks, nor skills. I tried to use all the advice you gave me on my other mocs. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mer- ry meet! I am Ein. Take a note on that, because you will hear it in the future, i guarantee! I am a blewe elf. Yes, i am not blue. I live in the blue. Hope it is not too complicated for you. Some others would know my kind as finvolk, or marmennill, or something like that. First of all, excuse my incidental grammatical errors. Your common tongue, is not my strongest skill. Usually, i prefer to pick up just elvish languages. Hope you will understand mer. Let's get started, shall we? Mer father was born in the mernificent polis of Tethys. He swam in the waters of Kalypsō, what sadly, I didn't have the opportunity to do so. Came to this world looong after that dreadful catastrophe. You know which one i am talking about, right? The one that happened in the place you probably know, or heard of as Varlyrio. Mer home is the spectacular underwater city of Thalassa. Would be a fool to tell you the exact location. Keep it a secret for now. About mer birth... What do you think? Are we from eggs or born alive? Like fish, or like humans? I will let you figure it out by yourself, if you can. Good luck with that dryskin! Haha! So, where was i before i've got tidetracked? Oh, yes! Mer father is called Ægir, Protector of the Blewe. Mer mother's name is Rán. Queen of the Blewe. I know, i know. Those titles are not very creative... Just for the record. They are not blue neither! I also have nine sisters- imagine that, but you don't want mer to list their names here. Would be long and boring believe mer, and i don't want you to know their names. You probably not even worthy to lay your beady little dust dweller eyes on mer beauteous sisters anyway. By the way, they have terrible personalities, and i am sure all of them are much older than you. Not to mertion nobody in their right mind would want to be their boyfriends. Not to mertion... husband. Enough of those margygurs! Let's talk about mer, merself, and i. Grew up in the eerie waters of Lorelei Loch. Had an adventurous childhood. The Children of Ceto always stirring up the deep waters yonder. There weren't many boring moments i can tell you that. Fortunately these days, we have less and less problems with them. Guess what? Even befriended a few. Who could have foretell that. I will speak to you about them another time, i promise. If you behave yourself well. Be nice, you hear mer! It is no secret, we are not a fan of your kind. Maybe one day, this will change, but in the mertime i will tell you about mer useless titles. Yes, i have those, like mer parents have. Let's see. I am the Lochagos of the Warriors of Vortex order. Lord of Lorelei Loch. Guardian of Thalassa. Have a few more, but those have no interest to you. Oh, i have one more, which is a "cool one"! Krakenslayer! If you were wondering about the scar around mer left eye. While my dad is somewhere in the great waters of Ōkeanós on some diplomatic mission to contact other finvolk, i am trying to build connections with your kind. That is why i revealed myself to you. Do you want to know more? EinIntro by Erhard Maas, on Flickr - Many- many tides ago, there was Erda. The dust dwellers call it Varlyrio, or was it Valrylio, or Varilyo? Well, it doesn't really matter! Erda it is named in our ancient tongue. Two lands, one with an inland sea, what was known as Kalypsō. That is where our ancestors were born, in the beautiful city of Tethys. The water was crystal clean, and warm. Full of life in it, and in its vicinity. The drylanders didn't bother us much. Our neighbours, and distant relatives the Kolgari lived close by. Sometimes dwarves came to trade goods, and news in return for the fruits and rare treasures of the deep. Other than that no two legged people dared to walk those lands, and swim or sail those waters. Life was good, because the water was good! Then out of the blue, cataclysm hit! Erda quaked, cracked, and shattered, deadly gases leaked from the deepest parts of the underworld into the waters, and up in the air. Soon, Tethys was destroyed. As the ground opened, most of Kalypsō drained. Ran down into a cavern that might wasn't even there before. Many of our volk swam for the last time that day, crashed on the rocks by deadly currents, or swallowed by hazardous maelstroms, engulfed by the abyss. But others survived and just let the flow to take care of them. The water takes, but it always brings. So, they found themselves in this huge new cave, in a subterranean lake fed by underground rivers, and hot springs regularly. Other survivors of the catastrophe arrived too! Even the Kolgari couldn't continue their lives on the surface. They moved into this great cavern, we call Horthol. Those were hard times on them, and on our volk. On everybody, who found refuge there. Magic was used on a daily basis to help establish a new life. The Kolgari built an amazing place, what is known in the legends as Sunken City. We built our new home, the magnificent city of Thalassa, on the bottom of the lake we know as Lorelei Loch. We were lucky. Very lucky to survive. Water is vital for all of the beings. With the new place, came new discoveries. Ones that changed the fate of our volk forever. Found waterways which connected our new home with the vast water Ōkeanós, so some of our brave ancestors departed. Ōkeanós... The final frontier. Those were the longest voyages of our volk. Its continuing mission, to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life, and new civilizations, to boldly swim, where none one has swam before. To find new adventures, to meet never seen distant relatives. We also met new creatures, for example the Children of Ceto emerged from the depths of Lorelei Loch. Some of them were friendly, others are not so much. Water can be wild. Recent times, the surface strollers constantly grew in numbers. Not just in Erda. Don't have much respect towards the land, towards anything! They spill, and drink the waters, even fighting over it! Kill, murder for it! Sometimes they contaminate the wells, springs, rivers, and oceans! Litter the whole world! All that matters to them, is what can they take, what can they destroy! Almost always at war, those dryskins! Want power more, and more. Want everything! It is never enough! They know nothing! Nothing yet... Our volk are everywhere. We are watching. Where water is, there are we. Water is life, so we are! You cannot crush water, so you cannot crush us. We were here before you, and will be after you. We are the Elves of the Blewe! blewelves2 by Erhard Maas, on Flickr More pictures can be found in my Flickr album.

    Shanghai Shenanigans

    The second wave of Indiana Jones vignettes has begun! I present to you the first scene of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," where Indy attempts to make an even of the remains of Nurhachi for a diamond with crime boss Lao Che. Things are soon to go south due to Indy's being poisoned and his trusty sidekick Wu Han biting the dust. This build surprisingly took quite a while to construct due to my having to obtain just the right parts for the minifigures. There were also some delaying factors such as heavy storms and work that further delayed building time. Nonetheless, I forged on! :P As usual, big thanks to the original geniuses of the HP collab for inspiration. Cheers!

    Coveted Pumpkin

    Emma went shopping for Halloween decorations when she came across the perfect handbag, the Coveted Pumpkin. I was looking for an older photo when I came across the Coveted Crypt, which was done for a theme month on Eurobricks some time ago. This gave me the idea to do one for Halloween and change my avatar - just for October.
  8. Hello Eurobricks! I present a small vignette based on Hollow Knight videogame: It depicts the Pale King, the ruler of the bug kingdom of Hallownest, in his White Palace. At the present time in the game, he disappeared with his whereabouts unknown, and the palace was destroyed. But the main character, the Knight, gets to the White Palace in the Dream World to complete hard challenges and to retrieve the second half of the magical charm, the Kingsoul. And the King's residence is loaded with buzzsaws, lots of them! Why did the Pale King put them in his palace? Nobody knows. As he said, "No cost too great..." The buzzsaw is moving on the picture, and this is not CGI. I actually was rotating it while filming. That's how the White Palace and the buzzsaws look in-game: Here are some technical photos of the MOC.
  9. Hi everyone, I have build several vignettes with the minifigs from polybags (giveaways). I have done something similar with Star Wars minifigures. The first one is Hank Pym, who has turned into a giant. The second one is the Winter Soldier inside a Hydra facility. The third vignette is with Rocket Raccoon with Groot, The fourth vignette is with Rhodey as Iron Patriot. The Hulk is on a rampage and is still angry. Tony Stark in his Silver Centurion suit. The last vignette is with Electro inside a power plant. For more pictures, visit my Flickr album. Feedback and questions are welcome. Sander

    [9v MOC] CMF vig: March Harriet

    Hello everyone! What kind of ideas pop into your head when you hear of a "cmf 8x8 vignette contest"? Mind you, I eventually thought of Micromotor, 9V, Fiber Optics and a matching figure capable of delivering the goods (hint: it did). Here's what came out of that idea... Just a dance club, folks! Nothing to see here, carry on... It is fairly tall for a vig, but it certainly works give the space restrictions. The dim lights were a pain to film in my setting, although I tried my best. The show must go on, no excuses allowed! And no regrets for that matter. Welcome the Catwoman from the Batman Movie franchise! Double the fun!! Some technical shots. The old 9V system is invaluable for how smoothly it integrates into Lego System. Fitting the fiber optics element into 8x8 was one hell of a task. At times I felt like a car thief on a job... The floor, oh, the floor! Don't even ask. Some bits and pieces. The pole absolutely had to be chrome - a choice afterwards regretted... I dare you to find a sound, functional and purist solution of proper length if you don't believe me. A rubber wheel was the only option of attaching the piece as far as my knowledge of pieces goes. ...And the heat goes on... Now that's a club I wouldn't at all mind visiting... Hope you had a great time here, be sure to visit soon! And something tells me you might just do that... Thanks for your attention! Let me know if you had as much fun as I did! x)

    [MOC] Vignette: the Griffin monument

    Hey fellow Legoheads! This is my first attempt at a vignette. Kind of. I actually just wanted to make a fitting ''Stand'' for my female hoplite minifig so it does not get dropped / lost, but it ended up as a little more so I wanted to share it with you, hoping you like it a bit. I only had a very limited supply of bricks since it was not a planned creation.
  13. I thought I'd build up a few models in the series before sharing it on here, but with four instalments so far, I felt it was time. This is my Star Wars Ring-Worlds project, each instalment depicts/will depict a different location in the star wars galaxy with each one confined to the same circular base. And that's about it really, as the title suggests this won't be a series I'll update regularly, rather an ongoing project where I'll build the nest location as and when I fell like it. I've got a few ideas about which planets (or moons ) to do next but if anyone has any suggestions or ideas I'm all ears. But for now at least, I'll end this first post with the first four instalments in the series, Yavin 4, Lah'mu, Naboo and Lothal. Enjoy! Jedi Search - 5/5 : The Master by Inthert, on Flickr "You're a hard man to find, Galen" (1) by Inthert, on Flickr Star Wars Ring-worlds: Otoh Gunga Plasma Farm by Inthert, on Flickr Star Wars Ring-worlds: Lothal Highway Terminal by Inthert, on Flickr More images and information about all of the builds can be found on my Flickr page.
  14. Here's a little vignette inspired by THE X-FILES (not based on any particular episode or movie) with agents Fox Mulder & Dana Scully encountering a little gray alien at Area 51. I utilized no custom parts or printing. Mulder uses Agent Coulson's torso from 76077 as a base, while Scully uses Lois Lane's torso from 76046. The alien torso and head are taken from the CMF line, with the legs and hands swapped out for a more traditional look. Both figs have badges, cellphones, guns and flashlights. I also tried out some alternate hairpieces. Which do you prefer? Scully's is from the recent CMF veterinarian. One could wish for this part in more of an orange-red color, but of course Scully's shade has varied over the years. The shape here fits the character very well, I think. To finish things up, a shot of the base and an alternate angle on the completed model:
  15. The 5th vignette! This MOC took an extra bit of time due to my having to catch up on some sleep. Nonetheless, I'm forging on! Perhaps one of the creepiest scenes from Raiders, this scene depicts Indiana Jones and close friend Sallah retrieving the Ark of the Covenant from the Well of Souls in Tanis, Egypt. Little does Indy know that he will soon have to find a way out the snake-infested (asps to be precise) pit. Thanks to all the builders from the Harry Potter vignette story collaboration for inspiring this series.)

    A Real Basket Case [MOC]

    Well I'm 1/8 of the way there! The 3rd Raiders of the Lost Ark vignette, this MOC proved to be quite challenging as it required that many minifigures be placed on a 12x12 base. Interestingly enough, since this is the first MOC of the series whose base is built with top studs facing up, the actual border had to be built in 13x12 studs, unlike the previous vignettes' borders. This is an unforgettable scene from the movie when Indiana Jones and love interest Marion Ravenwood find themselves in the streets of Cairo, soon to be ambushed by rival archaeologist Belloq's men. Indy also has a short-lived duel with an experienced swordsman, accompanied with some nearly deadly "monkey business." (I would like to thank all the builders from the Harry Potter vignette story collaboration for inspiring me. Also, a big thank you to Mel and Markus for explaining in further detail their masterpieces at BrickWorld.)

    G2-9T in Sector 2 Vignette

    Deep in the bowels of a Star Tours spaceport; G2-9T works on repairing a broken R5 series astromech, constantly distracted by passing spacefaring tourists... This is a small vignette I made out of spare parts the other day. Sector 2 from the original Star Tours ride has remained one of my favorite moments of Star Wars. Growing up it was a ton of fun entering the ride in Disneyland and walking through the dimly lit and dirty Sector 2 seeing dozens of droids sitting in disrepair and abused states while two Goose Droids slowly worked on repairs. While the current Star Tours ride is technically superior and far more repeatable of a ride; I have always felt the trim and polished Sector 2 with the two droids handling TSA duties feels less Star Wars-y than the original madcap world of ill repaired droids the original presented. For reference to those of you who weren't familiar with the scene: The vignette is the result of combining spare pieces from my Lego parts bin together. This is probably the third time I have attempted to recreate the feel of Sector 2 in Lego. Admittedly it seems hard to create a pile of random junk in Lego while maintaining focus on the core aspects of a scene! I admit its not perfect, but its a fun litte vignette to display in my Lego collection. C3P0 on the observation platform. I also redesigned my Goose Droid using a plethora of new parts which weren't available when I first built the figure many years ago. I know the mix of new and old gray in the fig might be an eyesore for some of you, but for the dingy droids used in the actual attraction, it seems fitting . Hope you enjoyed my quick vignette, until next time! Star Tours history:

    [MOC/Vignette] Bushes of Love

    Hi everyone, here is a MOC/Vignette based on this Star Wars Bad Lip Reading: So I got the crazy idea of making that scene in LEGO Digital Designer. Here is the result: Heart shapes are in there to represent the "Bushes of Love", and here is a picture of the thing which has a "chicken head with duck feet… and a woman's face too". This is just a vignette I made for fun, but C&C is still welcome as always! VaderFan2187

    [MOC] LEGO Life

    An entry for the LEGO Life logo contest on Rebrick. Under each ‘stud’ on the brick, there is an 8×8 minifig scale vignette, in the same theme as the microscale build above it. I tried to represent three of the core themes of LEGO: City, Space, and Castle. This was a very enjoyable build, as I got to dabble in several themes, but it still all came together fairly quickly and easily. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  22. This is MOC of December 2012. I built my first vignette for a Magic World of Harry Potter Contest on DoubleBrick.ru and it took 9th place with 15 votes. The contest task were to illustrate one scene from HP book and the base of vignette should be no more than 16x16. At that moment I had only four HP minifigures (Harry, Draco, Snape and Bellatrix) so I decided to made something more interesting than just a Potions lesson. “I only came out because Mary told me you were threatening to sleep here.” “I was. I would have done. I never meant to call you Mudblood, it just—” “Slipped out?” There was no pity in Lily’s voice. “It’s too late. I’ve made excuses for you for years. None of my friends can understand why I even talk to you. You and your precious little Death Eater friends—you see, you don’t even deny it! You don’t even deny that’s what you’re all aiming to be! You can’t wait to join You-Know-Who, can you?” He opened his mouth, but closed it without speaking. “I can’t pretend anymore. You’ve chosen your way, I’ve chosen mine.” “No—listen, I didn’t mean—” “—to call me Mudblood? But you call everyone of my birth Mudblood, Severus. Why should I be any different?” He struggled on the verge of speech, but with a contemptuous look she turned and climbed back through the portrait hole… © J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, chapter 33 The Prince's Tale. Main photo. Empty space in vignette emphasizes the distance that has arisen between the characters. Young Severus. Portrait of the Fat Lady and young Lily. Lily Evans and Severus Snape. Without minifigures. Backside view. Portrait of the Fat Lady can be raised to open the entrance to Gryffindor Tower. Lily leaves. It's too late to apologize... Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed)
  23. Bastion docks... Two grizzled longshoremen work to load the Nemesis... as a cargo ship! What's afoot? Longshoreman 1: I still don't understand. I thought the Nemesis was going to be a raider - a 36 gun ship! Longshoreman 2: Well, yes, she is, but right now there just aren't enough guns available here, so the owners (whoever they are) have decided to fit her out for trade this season. She looks fearsome enough, and she has her upper deck carronades, so I think any pirates or privateers will stand well clear. Longshoreman 1: But it doesn't stand to reason, I say. Why, over at the ordnance yard there are more than enough guns. What does she fit? 12 pounders - there must be at least 30 of them over there, and she only needs 26. Longshoreman 2: Oh, no, those guns are spoken for. Already sold to, um... Captain Moldybeard. Longshoreman 1: I've never heard of any Captain Moldybeard, but I'll take your word for it, I suppose. Still, I don't really understand. If the owners were able to finance such a large, splendid vessel, they should have been able to obtain guns for her. That's not the only ordnance yard, and the foundry is right across the bay. Longshoreman 2: Oh, yes, the foundry. Unfortunately, there's an iron shortage on the island. No iron available anywhere. Can't cast any guns. Longshoreman 1: Well, surely they would have fitted bronze cannon in that case. They're not as durable, but they do shoot true. Longshoreman 2: No bronze either. Longshoreman 1: No bronze either...? You know, I could swear that Nemesis actually had all her guns when she was fitting out. Where did they go? Longshoreman 2: Uh... well, that's because she wasn't in commission. Longshoreman 1: I don't understand. Longshoreman 2: Well, before she was in commission, she could have 36 guns and there wouldn't be any... problems. Longshoreman 1: What do you mean... problems? Longshoreman 2: Okay, I'm going to level with you, but you cannot tell ANYONE. It's impossible to commission a ship with that many guns. Longshoreman 1: What do you mean impossible? Longshoreman 2: Well, if you did, the universe would explode. Do you want the universe to explode? I don't want the universe to explode. Longshoreman 1: Of course I don't want the universe to explode. Why would the universe explode? Longshoreman 2: Because it's not supported, that's why! Longshoreman 1: Not supported? Is that why the ship isn't fully laden? The holds are half empty and we're nearly done. Longshoreman 2: Yes, it's also not supported to load more than this exact amount of cargo in any given ship, no matter how big the holds are. Now, this conversation never happened, okay? Otherwise... explosions! Longshoreman 1: What conversation? I felt it was necessary to have a vignette to justify underlicensing the Nemesis as a 5F temporarily. This is it.

    Unwelcome Tidings

    My 10th and last entry to the Colossal Castle Contest (small miscellaneous category). This was mainly a small fun build to mess around with new designs. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out, and that I was able to get every element actually attached, except the 3 logs which rest securely in the firewood bin. First installment in the story. After his first successful meeting with the Jarl of Balkr, Glorfindel had high hopes that he would meet with similar success when visiting other jarls and lords on the Nocturnus border. Dedan had set off for another clansman village, while Glorfindel's next trip took him to the medium sized town of Firoir. A single guard stood watch at the gate, or rather sat watch, as he was resting on a stool. "What's your business here?" He questioned, not bothering to stand. "I need to speak with Lord Tuinis," Glorfindel replied, taking in the somewhat disheveled uniform of the soldier. "Just straight on down the main road to his manor then, can't miss it." "Thank you, and good day," said Glorfindel, to which the guard merely grunted. Continuing on his way, Glorfindel saw that the guard was right and that it would be almost impossible to miss the large ornate manor. After an equally brief conversation with the steward, Glorfindel found himself face-to-face with Lord Tuinis in a lavish wood paneled room. "And what brings the esteemed Sir Glorfindel to the humble town of Firoir?" Asked Tuinis with a sneer. "Urgent orders from Elon Chorian no doubt, more men and supplies needed to defend our beloved capitol city?" Somewhat taken aback by the lord's belittling manner, Glorfindel tried to be diplomatic in his response: "It's always an honor to be received into any town of Mitgardia, and while the capitol is secure, I do bring word from Chorian that the villages, towns, and cities along the Nocturnus border should be fortified against a possible attack from the darklands. Tuinis jeered, "Of course! It's easy enough for him to order new fortifications and more soldiers to be trained, but we lords always pay the price for his petty concerns. Not a year ago, I was ordered to send troops and reserves of goods to the North for defense against the Algus threat. Yet this supposed threat to our existence was never even sighted by my scouts!" "Surely you don't mean to question the validity of the Algus attack?" Glorfindel asked incredulously. "Northern Mitgardia paid a dear price to keep the Algus from advancing to your doorstep! And if your scouts really never picked up on that threat, that only betrays their incompetence!" "You dare insult a lord of Mitgardia to his face at his own hearth?" spat Tuinis, "I know your kind, merely a lackey of Valholl, constantly sticking your nose into your better's business, and getting rewarded for it!" For a moment, Glorfindel could only consider the satisfaction a swift blow to the insolent face before him would provide, then with a great effort he controlled himself and turned from the room. Tuinis aimed one final insult at the retreating figure "That's right, crawl back to your fancy city and learn not to meddle. You have no authority here, boy." Another view of the build. I hope you're enjoying this storyline with Glorfindel, I'm having fun actually using my character for once Comments and suggestions always welcome

    [MOC] Swamp Rescue

    Hello! Would like to present my second MOC after my dark ages. (Sorry, i build like a 12 year old, twenty years ago.) (You can check out my first MOC here!) I joined Nocturnus a few days ago, so i decided to (try) build something not too big, because i don't have that much bricks, and it is easier to start small i think. So i had a little scene in mind, then it slowly changed and transformed into this final form. I made an order on BL, and built it. Sorry, i do not own a professional camera, so i just used my phone. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Saga of Gutkeled the Tangled I. Swamp Rescue: As dusk settled over the dangerous lands of Nocturnus, Gutkeled the Tangled was gingerly heading East, passing through one of the deadly, and smelly swamps to stay hidden from the happenings of the civil war going on his beloved homeland. He was just getting across a dodgy bridge, when he heard the murky water splashing, and a woman's screech as well! First he thought it is just a crow with its raucous voice complaining about something, somewhere in the dense vegetation... Wasn't good for his ears, i tell you that. Anyway, it was really a woman. Or something like that. His mama Leofflæd taught him well, to be a good and honorable man, and to be helpful, especially to ladies, so he decided to lend a hand to the stranger. Even if she seemed like a vampire, or should i say swampire. - Good evening Ma'am! Don't you worry, i will pull you out in no time! - shouted Gutkeled, whilst he cut down a long, strong vine with his sword from a nearby tree. No answer came, just panic, screams, and the swamp's greenish water stirred up even more. The young wanderer cautiously stepped on the edge of the bridge, and held the vine in front of the woman. - Grab it, and don't let go! - said Gutkeled in haste. He wanted this to be over as quick as possible, because above them on top of the tree, in its crown, two swamp spooks nested. Some people and other life forms called them bog bogeys, and those creatures didn't like anyone near their home! Especially noisy ones. Usually the female laid a crystal thingy on top of a tree, while the male caught and killed some lesser creatures, and took their souls to trap it in the crystal. A few nights later the next generation of swamp spooks were born from it. They were always born during, or after full moon, because the crystal needed to catch the moon's rays to transform the souls into those nasty little spirits. Although they were only preying on smaller beings, they could mess up Gutkeled with an attack, if they wanted to. They literally just fly through someone's body, or head, causing headaches, nausea, dizziness for long hours, or in some cases, days. - Almost have you! - Gutkeled managed to pull the woman closer to the bridge, then lay on his stomach, and reached down with his hand to grab her. Soon both of them were sitting on the bridge. Safe and sound. - Are you all right, Ma'am? - asked the man, looking at the soaked and wet, and needless to say malodorous bloodsucker. - Handsome, ye call me ma'am one more time, an' ah wull have ye for dinner! - voiced the exhausted woman, as she observed her savior. - Be careful, vampy! Your sharp tongue might cut your throat one day... - stood up Gutkeled, and put his left hand on his swords hilt. The woman immediately get on her feet too. - Please, before we get carried away, let me introduce maself! Cailleach Bheur, at yer service! Ye assistance is much appreciated! - the change of her tone was comforting. - You are welcome, Cally! I am Gutkeled. Nice to meet you, i hope! What were you doing out here in the middle of nowhere alone? If you don't mind me asking! - Ah've heard some avalonian adventurers roaming these swamps. They are usually delicious. I almost had them, but lost ma footing on this cursed piece of poor woodwork. Dinna have to tell ye, i am not fond of watter and stuff. - I assure you, i taste nothing like avalonians, that's for sure. But i have some dried meat and even some red wine, if you are still hungry. - lied Gutkeled, as he was half avalonian (- half amazing) after his mother. - No need to worry darlin'! I won't bite, for now. But ah take the meat and wine! Let's find a good place, an' get a fire gaun! Have to dry ma dress! - grinned Cailleach mischievously. - Agreed! - nodded the young man, and shortly they disappeared into the night. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First, some pictures without the characters.: IMG_20161224_120422 by Erhard Maas, on Flickr IMG_20161224_120514 by Erhard Maas, on Flickr With minifigs.: IMG_20161224_120955 by Erhard Maas, on Flickr IMG_20161224_134529 by Erhard Maas, on Flickr A slightly different version. : IMG_20161224_135129 by Erhard Maas, on Flickr More pictures in my Flickr album.
