Pt. I: The coast
This poor Persian was stabbed by Leonidas; then kicked off the cliff and to his death in the water below.
A somewhat artisitc shot. Pt. II: The battle
A couple of plants.
This Spartan met an unpleasant fate after he attemoted to take on an Immortal.
This Immortal leaps to attack a corpulent Spartan Pt. III: The rocks
Larger rockpile. P. IV: The minifigures and other such things
Here are the Spartans.
Persians and the Immortal.
Now you can see this rockpile clearly.
The full body of water.
And one of my few original sketches of this build.
I love this so much! The Immortal was the perfect touch! I love the part in the first skirmish, when Leonidas just charges with his spear, and like kills 5 Persians, throws the spear, unsheathes his sword, and kills even more.
Sorry for being late, I couldn't get MOCpages to work Saturday. Anyway, Build: 10. This looks fantastic. The rocks, the water, the blood, even the figures look like King Leonidas and his Spartans against Persians. Design: 2. While this design is really good, the only thing really saying this is Redesign are the figures of the Spartans. There isn't a rock wall, just some bits of larger rock patterns that have been cropped out. Presentation: 5. Short, sweet and to the point. 17/20 Had the design stayed a little more true to the first one, it would have scored better in that section, but it's a smart sacrifice as this is a far superior design overall.
To be honest, it doesn't seem like a revamp of the old MOC, more like a completely new build with a similar concept. The build itself is excellent, but I think it could have been more similar to the old one in terms of layout.
