About this creation

I was honoured to join Blake Baer and Siercon and Coral in their WarScape saga this year, and here's my volume of the series.



When the unearthly howls first reached our ears, carried by the frosted wind, not a man could resist the icy tremor which ran down their spine. Chilling like the scream of wind through the mountain cemetary, we knew it to be the herald of death, truer than the Reaper himself. Looking over our once steadfast walls I spotted the source of the demonic baying, and felt the steely vise of dread clamp upon my heart. Great beasts of darkness rose from hell itself, their heads upraised in exhaltion at being free, flames leaping from their jaws. Evil had thawed, and surely it'd take more than mortal man to freeze it again.



As it grew difficult to behold the terrifying evil beasts which rose from fire to assault us, my eyes turned to the sea. My sense of dread was complete upon viewing the devastation which crushed every belief in escape. As a black, soulless ship rowed alongside our anchored galley, streams of flaming quarrels rained destruction upon her decks. On land, drumbeats rang out like peals of thunder, a great ballista fired death to their rhythm. The walls of our fortress grew tight around me, hope draining from my marrow.



From my vantage I could just barely see the horde which spread throughout the town. Flames sprung of each building as the swarm passed, I prayed that our church would withstand. From the hills our stalwart defenders descended to battle the evil which desecrated their homes, sturdy Northerners whose axes swung sure. For a moment I dared to hope that they would emerge victors, then a wail like that which I'd never heard split the frigid air. Evil's greatest ally made its presence known, the dragon's horned head turning towards the battle below...



The sounds of war permeate the air, screams of our fallen piercing my heart. Yet I refuse to surrender all faith. My life may soon be forfeit, these castle walls no match for the engines of evil, but while there is time there is hope. It is said that a new type of vessel is being constructed deep in the heart of the mountain, one which needs no sea to cruise upon and is buoyed by steam. It seems impossible, though I pray it true; belief in escape is all which isolates us from death.



Looking out, my previous thoughts of escape appear as the most unattainable dream. Our bastion of stone, our isolation from all that plagues the poor and the weak, is surrounded by those who have ruined countless such edifices. Our developing cloud ship is still but rumour, of which I've seen no proof. At long last all hope has left me. I have died, and our city shall be the earth to entomb me... Forsaken are the men of God, for we have sinned.



The inner tower.



A ship suffers a fatal hit, water gushes out from the shattered planks.



Decapitation of a Northern warrior.



Two bureaucrats watch as their forces battle evil.



A war beast is summoned from the depths of the Earth.



A ballista lends it strength in the ship battle.



The dragon.



In hidden tunnels under the castle propellers for a airship are built.



A underground pond.



The boat battle.



The interior of the castle walls.



The side.



An overhead view.

Thanks for stopping by, and look forward to Blake Baer's and Siercon and Coral's upcoming volumes!

Quoting Andre Benjamin Every time I see microscale from you, I'm just floored. The NPU here with the boats, the dragon, and all the little nooks and crannies with the castle are fantastic. Curious to know how you made the little people... Excellent, Luke! :D
Thanks Andre! The people are made by cutting a small piece of flex-tube lengthwise and slipping it over a lever piece. Then the bottom of the lever fits nicely between two grill tiles.

You never cease to amaze me with the amount of detail you put into all your creations, even into the micro ones. Excellent work, although I think the colour gradient background is a bit too much.

A strange and fascinating build and story. I like the modular nature of this MOC and how it lets you focus on each section before taking the the whole build.

I love each of these as individual mocs but together they are brilliant. Still really impressed by the snot cheese work on the snow-ice-water transition.

So many excellent details cramed into such a small space. Really well done on this. Love the ship, especially with the rolled up sails. Congratulations on the priviledge to build with such talented people! -LB Senior

This is completely amazing... all the small details are flat-out incredible. I love the melting ice (near the shore as well as the pits) and the creative use of pieces you've used to build up the atmosphere and story is stunning. Really stellar work!

Awesome build, and tons of those neato micro figs. I can't even imagine incorporating all the necessary grills into a MOC. And all the snow and water and icey bits are just spectacular.
