Team Jigsaw's ApocMOC: Nature's Stranglehold
About this creation
MOCathalon Home Page.
Team group: Team Jigsaw 2012.

Category: ApocaMOC

As the Last World War reached its climax, reckless moves were made. It became a wild game in which each side attacked remorselessly, abandoning each sanctuary as it was won, to leap once more into the fray. In the rush to discover new chemical weapons to destroy their enemies, both sides began using weapons they did not fully understand. In many areas where the action was highest, such as the London crater, strange things began to happen, especially to the plant life. Inexplicable growth spurts, incredibly increased levels of CO2 consumption and oxygen output, even rumors of plants attacking homes and installations.

Gradually the increased levels of oxygen in the atmosphere took their toll. The billions of people working to support their various armies, and the soldiers in the field became intoxicated. The plants had developed a chemical weapon of their own.

But as there will always be an England there will always be Man. Though the nations crumbled into ruin, and millions piled on millions of people died, there was a small, almost insignificant, fraction of a percent who survived. A few members of the disbanded Air Corps became nomads, scavengers. Their breathing apparatus and aircraft enabled them to live as long as they had air to breathe and fuel to flee. Eventually, after much consideration they set up a fortress inside the ancient (and extremely defensible) structure of Stone Henge. Here they resolved to run no more. Here at Stone Henge, built by humans in the depths of time, and still measuring the days, the hours, the minutes, they survive. Here in Mankind's midwinter, they anticipate the Spring.

Some-wall commentary.
This being my first build of the MOCathalon 2012, I wanted to make it big, make it an example of building that would stand stand through the ages.
So I built Stonehenge, with many hours of deliberation over details in the build (such as the helicopter crop dusting, wind-sock) and the plausibility of the backstory, a couple of late night hilarity filled Skype calls with teammates John 55555, Arkov, I present to you, Stonehenge, Apawk-style.

Very nice. Excellent job on the landscaping, and the backstory was detailed and captivating. Maybe just shy of a five, but a resounding 4! Well done.

That's pretty awesome. I love your build and your story, and I think it was a great idea to set it in an international monument. (taking notes)

How would the majority of humanity get intoxicated? Wouldn't insects just get 7 feet long? (P.S. Im not an expert) I love the usage of parts and the helicopter. P.S.S shouldn't people just set off huge fires to both A. Kill of a lot of oxygen and B. Kill off a bunch of the overpopulation of plants? Well anyways great MOC and story.

Awesome! Although, having been there, I'm not sure how defensible stonehenge is, due to the big pile of falen rocks in the middle. Still, great entry.

Quoting Blake Baer Now THAT, is landscape. The quality in the rocks is excellent as well. Not too certain is shows the category however. Score: a solid 4
Define category, there IS an Apocalypse going on here, I just chose to do a less used type of Apocalypse. Instead of it not fitting the ApocaMOC category, think of it as redefining Apocalypse. Personally, I'm sick of zombie and desert apocalypse. ;)

A very scary thought indeed, and a unique take on the end of the world. Your rock technique is excellent, and reminds me of Kelso's. Score= 5 (the originality really put it over the top for me....congrats!)
