About this creation
Flash MOC Blitz'ard:  Origins of Chivalry
"We Urticans are not natural warriors. We grew up in peace and prosperity in the polar realm... but that all changed when the humans arrived. Once the war began, we were forced to take up arms to defend our farms and homes. War became our way of life. How we long to return to the days of peace! While we are attacked though, you can be sure we'll fight back!"

Hello all! Some of you Flickr residents may recognize this creation and know the context in which this creation was built, but for those who have not seen this, I shall explain.

This was apart of an experiment by Sean and Steph in doing an internet "Flash MOC". Essentially, there is an exclusive group of builders who all post something from a certain theme and storyline on the exact same night at the exact same time and just flood everybody's activity streams with crazy builds from another world. To find out more about the Flash MOC and find the whole story, go to this group. http://www.flickr.com/groups/urtica

This creation was centered around the bear technique and the snow/polar realm. I had a ton of fun, and (despite this being whipped out in 5 days) really enjoyed the atmosphere of building with other people. I'll let the build speak for itself though!

Hope you all like it! God bless, and SOLI DEO GLORIA!
Grace and peace,
-Blake







































And lastly, here is a close up of the bears, around which this MOC was centered.

Man this is epic mate! I don't think I could bring myself to using loose bricks to make vertical walls, but they do look the part. I also really love the PU in this, fantastic work. The other MOCs from the series all look great too, gutted I missed the show! ~Thoy

What a beauty!! The original idea of a FlashMOC is great and you guys did an outstanding job. Nice part use for the house, the wall-texturing is very convincing and some details add a great value to this universe you all created. I like the water/ice effect too. Again, stunning work for a stunning idea.

Always nice to see your new creation Blake. The use of chicle ships, it is fantastic. I do not know how, but the atmosphere of peace, that this creation, it's like when you go out when it just snowed ... everything is silent. Truly amazing, Blake. Thanks for showing this work of art, and to have explained to us the Flesh Moc.

all impressively refined pieces! maybe because it ressembles the pc game I played, artic stronghold is my fav, [where are the giants with clubs?] lol, as for yours, it looks exotic, 2 boat pieces, it inpires me for going further, like adding an attachment, so they can move to form a ship, as a transformer concept, it would of course look more steampunk, as it is, it s worth the best story books ref pics on shelves and beyond, bravo!

Hey Blake I like this MOC, there are so many awsome details around it. It's also good to see some more pictures, than those who are on Flickr. These pine trees are fantastic and the house with the boat shells is ingenious! Have a great day! Simon

When I logged on to Flickr that evening I honestly didn't realize what was going on. I only saw the contrasting colours of Si-Mocs' build and clicked on it. I then noticed a whole bunch of other builds with snow and polar bears. I went through them all and enjoyed them. But yours was by far my favourite because of the way you have the boat hulls incorporated perfectly into the walls. Now I have a use for mine! Really great work done by everyone and I hope this will happen again. -Duncan L

Great to see this one all over again on MP. Fantastic work! The use of the hull pieces, as you've no doubt realized already, was a truly genius idea. Inspired PU! Everything else is also stellar: the pine trees are gorgeous and the ice and rockwork are very well-done. Worthy of the high caliber of the collaboration, without a doubt!

A work worthy of being called a Blake Baer original. Love the overall look. I haven't seen those huge brown pieces covering the corners of the house. What set do those come from? I saw several of those works on Flickr, but I never got to see yours there. Glad I got to catch on MP. Very well done, as always, Blake.

I immensely enjoyed perusing through each of these posts on Flickr. I believe I shared my thoughts on your build over in that realm of the internet, but it's nice to have so many more photos here. Also jolly decent of you to post a picture of each build (as several of the builders don't have/are no longer active on MOCpages). Great job on the ice and water, and of course all the techniques on that polarish dwelling. Well done as usual Blake! (Heh heh, sorry for all the edits, Teen life spelling crisis.)

Amazing Blake! I love the snotted and rockwork, and how it faces in different directions! But my favorite part has to be the house! The use of boat hulls is just genius!
