My entry in Caleb's 4x4 Contest. Round 1- Category: Castle/Fantasy
About this creation
Here is the link to the contest: http://mocpages.com/group.php/19895

When I first heard of the 4x4 contest, I thought "Wow! What a piece of cake!"

Boy was I wrong!

It actually turned out to be a really engaging but fun challenge to figure out the best way to convey a story only on a 4x4 base.


So, without further ado, I present THE RUINS...

Backstory: It is a time of chaos and despair for the once-peaceful kingdom! After a deadly attack by the fearsome Dragon Beasts, the kingdom was plunged into darkness with no hope of regaining its beauty. When all seemed lost, a lone figure emerged from the shadows, destined to restore the kingdom to its original glory! Using his legendary Blade of Light, our courageous hero defied all odds as he conquered the evil Dragon Beasts deep within their dungeon lair...







The dungeon of the Dragon Beasts. I built this scene as a tower, sticking to the 3 level rule of the contest.








The bottom level reveals the underground caves beneath the lair. The skull of an unfortunate victim of the Beasts rots away in the shadows.








Above the caves, a hidden alcove within the temple ruins holds the mighty Axe of Wisdom! The Dragon Beasts collected this powerful weapon from one of their prey and put it on display in their castle as a trophy, but it may come in handy later in our hero's battle.








The battle rages between our nameless hero and his strong opponent- the leader of the Dragon Beasts. Though all we can see of the Beast is his sharp claw, we know there must be more to this monster!















The fight continues! Will there be an end? The lair crumbles under the crushing attacks of the Beast, leaving the castle in ruins!








Just a quick shot of the back ;)








And thus concludes our heroic story. Did the hero successfuly slay the Dragon Beasts for good and end their dark reign? Or did evil prevail and consume the kingdom?
The rest of the story is up to you...



A special thanks to Caleb for hosting the contest! Good luck to the other entries :)

pretty cool,I like the underground cave however,you should have used some of your epic photo editing for this not just a wavy mixture beetween a tapestry and flames to give it a more "dramatic" look.

Quoting Original Channel of MOCpages (Caleb) Excellent! Creativity- I feel like the only thing lacking there is for the dragon arm to somehow not look so... it just looks like its sitting on the wall- 2/3 Details- 3/3! Nailed it! PQ- There was one blurry picture, but the awesome photoshop made up for it. 2/2. Originality- Never seen a dragon duel put on a 4x4 2/2. Total, 9/10
Sweet! Thanks! Glad you liked it :D
