King Arthur's Court
About this creation
MOCathalon 2012

Globetrotters

For the category "Myths and Legends."

Arthurian legends have always been a great love of mine, so I was happy to get to represent the legend in Lego with this category.
Read T.H White's "The Once and Future King", Mary Stewart's "Crystal Cave" books or Rosemary Sutcliff's "Sword at Sunset", and you'll see that the story is just as complex and riveting as modern books like "The Game of Thrones."

I decided to set my build in a more realistic time period than the Mallory and White stories.
Instead of taking place in the 12th century, this will be set in the 500's, shortly after the fall of Rome.
Instead of being a grand king surrounded by knights in shining armor, Arthur was most likely a British Warlord, trying to reunite the various tribes and bring back the Roman peace.



From left to right, the characters shown here are: Mordred, Arthur's bastard son, conceived of his half sister (weeeeeirrd). Gawain, Mordred's half brother and son of Lot of Orkney. Merlin, a druid of the old gods of Britain. Arthur himself. Guinevere the queen, married to Arthur for political purposes. Bedwyr, the queen's lover (he's taking the place of Lancelot, since Lancelot was a later French addition to the story.)
The last guy is just a guard, no one important.

So there ya go, just another MOCathalon entry.

Since the games are more than half over, and I've only posted two builds, it's time to kick it into a higher gear.

Wow! So nice Minifigures, I really need to get more... I've just tried to build some mosaics, cause I saw a lot while the MOCathalon. They are very difficult to build...

Excellent! The cheese mosaic is really cool, having the cheese not fit seamlessly must have been difficult. Also, I really like the chair and dress designs. Great work!

I dunno, I kinda liked the cracked look of the mosaic. And the other little details really helped out (the queen's feet for one) 4 points. ~ Chris.

Quoting Blake Baer I feel as though you started the mosaic feeling optimistic, and then you just gave up and tossed the cheese in there! ;) It is a very bare scene though. Score: a solid 3
Have you ever tried one of those mosaics? Good scott, they're hard! I honestly don't know how Katie does it.

Quoting Mr. Xenomurphy A nice and solid composition. Just like in your clue MOC, the part that I loved instantly is the dress design. Looks like you're very much interested in dresses, hahaha ;o)

Quoting M2com McKinney Wow! Very nice layout, I also like you got the dress to look like that! Very well done! By the way is there a chance that I could join your group or is it way too late?
Sorry, entry into the MOCathalon was closed a while ago.

Nice work. I'm not a fan of the gaps in the cheese slope mosaic at the back, but I do like the shape and design of it. As for a round table, could you have some how used the log brick technique? I don't know how you'd have covered the top of it though. The build is overall pretty nice.

Great stuff. I love the floor and the cheese wedge detail on the wall. Great minifigs too. Good luck :)

Quoting Ian Spacek Very nice Ru! I really like how you flared Guinevere's dress. The only thing missing is the round table!
Thanks Ian! I had considered making a round table, but as hard as I tried I couldn't think up a good design.

Quoting George G. I love King Arthur! I've been to his castle (Tintagel) and I live next to the town where the supposed Round Table is stored :) Great entry mate!
