About this creation
My entry for the Junior MOC Olympics 2014!


Catagory 2: The chance of a lifetime!




After a great battle in over the east edge of Iceland, the viking warrior Agnar received information from an Interrogated P.O.W. of an ancient rock in the mid Atlantic ocean containing a powerful treasure. Stories have been told of a man who ventured to this island and never to have returned. His soul has been told to whisper among the waves, beckoning them to never venture too close. But Agnar with his love of conquering and treasure set off to this remote island, for his chance of a lifetime.







After 100 days of sailing, Agnar finally caught sight of the mysterious solitary rock.
He eventually reached the island, and in the direct center of the monastery, was the golden brick, with the power of to give life to anything in existence. But he saw a figure, one made of solid gold. This was once the man who ventured here, but was corrupted by the brick and stayed there for eternity. His soul was dragged from his body and left to wander endlessly among the Earth. The remaining is what is left, a soulless shell to guard the brick. A fierce battle ensued, but the mighty Angar was triumphant.

Originally planning to take the treasure back, he thought he might spend a bit more time there, he very much liked it in it`s place. And he stayed some more, and more. To this day no one has seen any sign of Angar, but his soul still whispers among the waves.








Admittedly I`m not too great with back stories, I end making a model, do the photo shoot and sit down to write my post and I go, "Oh yeah, I have to write a story", so Don`t ridicule me if it`s too bad.

I actually entered the JLO when I was on Holiday, but luckily i got back in time to make an entry. On my holiday i got quite a few pick a bricks, so the majority of what you see is from that, including the round tiles you see and the ocean.

I initially started to make this similarly to my lighthouse build, so i was kinda scared it would turn out too much like it, but i added a walk way and added a nice temple thing on top.







For the trees i actually used a brand new 2014 piece, a round 2x2 tile with a hole in the middle, allowing me to use the small dome pieces upside down to make pot like features. The pattern you see surrounding the base of the temple was a direct result of my pick a bricks. It relied mostly on 'daleks' as they are commonly called, and because of this there is a 1/2 plate offset the you can see with the stairs leading up to the upper section. The rest of the build went rather as a you`d expect.







Agnar is a minifigure I quite often use. All my MOCs sort of tie-in together into a whole universe. I plan on using him again so I guess this can be at towards the end of his story line. The warrior I particularly like the look of especially the helmet. Those who are quite observant will notice it`s the rocka helmet for this new wave of hero factory sets. I find it actually quite ghostly in miniature form so I thought it quite suited for this half dead character, it looks a bit like there is a bit of something there but mostly an empty shell of armour.































I hope that pretty much sums this up, I think this is my 5th Medieval model MOC so far and this is my first MOCpages competition. Good luck to anyone else entering and as always, BRICK OUT DUDES!

Nice work. However, I wouldn't call that a monastery as they are usually quite large, and roofed. Nonetheless, it is a very well built MOC. The side paneling looks great. And even though it sounds like you spent two minutes on the story(from your admittance of waiting to the last minute to make a story) it turned out rather well.

Quoting David . I'd resist commenting since I'm a judge, (sit straight, elbows off the table and keep your mouth shut! this is an inspection, son!) But I must giv you at least a little compliment for this truly incredible build. Nice use for the new 2x2 round plate with the hole, too. :D
Thanks! I really appreciate a compliment coming from someone actually at the head of the group. It means a lot to me, particularly since this is my first competition too.
