Description of the Trojan Horse
Catagory 1: Greek Classics
The Trojan Horse is a tale from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy and end the conflict.

Enjoy the photos!




Side view.


Front view.


Aeriel view.


Tail. I think this came out great!


The head, this came out quite well also!


Top.


Look! You can take this off...


...And fit minifigs inside! They can stand up too!


This side looks normal...


...Except for the fact that it opens up to let the Greeks out!


You can even put a ladder on the secret door.


Full view with the Greek men.


Up close of the Greeks.


Excerpt from the Odyssey: What a thing was this, too, which that mighty man wrought and endured in the carven horse, wherein all we chiefs of the Argives were sitting, bearing to the Trojans death and fate!
But come now, change thy theme, and sing of the building of the horse of wood, which Epeius made with Athena's help, the horse which once Odysseus led up into the citadel as a thing of guile, when he had filled it with the men who sacked Ilion.




Thanks for looking! God Bless! I'd appreciate comments!

Very nice playability and parts usage with those chains, and the sculpting is pretty well-done. That being said, I agree with Luke, though still a nice build! Score of 3.

Love the use of tread pieces, and the shaping on the neck. However, the snout and midsection seemed a tad too blocky, and the studs showing on the sides detract from the wooden vibe. Also, I think that you'd have benefitted from spending a couple more days building up a less rectangular landscape section to present it on. That said, a very cool model which wrangles 3 points from me.

Lol In SWO i was the nice judge. I am gonna have to go mean judge in this contest. I give you a 3.25 I feel as if the Body is a bit blocky and too much stud exposure. Very Nice Job Though. You have some very good NPU.
