About this creation

"Look at them. They're frightened. You can see it in their eyes.“

My entry into the 2013-14 Middle Earth Lego Olympics, against the amazing KW Vauban, and his superb entry.

Also my entry into ABS Forever's contest called These Go To Eleven Contest.




GCVI: Midnight Raid

Hello all,

Here is my last entry into the restricted category of the Global Contest 6, and also MELO Round 3. I wasn't originally going to enter MELO (because of life, school, and being sick most of last week), but as I was building this entry, I was trying to find a way to incorporate it into MELO, as I didn't want to leave the round by default, and finally found a way. The quote is: "Look at them. They're frightened. You can see it in their eyes.“ As I was thinking about this, I realized it worked right into my story. When the Rangers are climbing up the wall, they have to knock out the guards on top, and you can see the fear in their eyes. ;)

It is kind of a weak link, but I am glad that I at least was able to put something into MELO. :P



Enjoy the story and the build!




“You know the plan, sneak in, find the armory, and out. Avoid anybody you see, but you are going to have to knockout the 2 guards on this wall.” Tonight was the night. After a week of planning, they were ready. Andar gave the 3 Rangers a last briefing before they went into action. The Rangers nodded, they were ready, practicing all week, preparing for this night. They chose to do the raid in the middle of a shift between guards, when the guards were starting to get very sleepy and bored. Feren stood by, watching them, wanting to see how they would ascend the wall. The Rangers went into action. They took a few minutes absorbing the feel of the shadows, and used it to their advantage. Feren almost shouted in surprise, for the Rangers seemed to disappear right into midair. Andar glanced over, raising one eyebrow in amusement. Feren shook his head in wonder as the Rangers appeared again, flat against the wall. Puzzled, he turned to Andar, asking, “Andar, how are they going to climb the wall? They are right under the guard, so they can’t use a rope and grapple, how are they going to get up?” Andar shook his head, smiling again. “They’ll climb.” Feren gaped at him. “Climb!?” “Yes climb. I think I made myself very clear,” Andar replied amused. “Remember, this fortress was breaking down, the walls were crumbling. When the Queen’s troops occupied it, they tried to repair the walls. But, as they are soldiers, not stone masons; they did a very poor job. My Rangers are using that to their advantage.” As Feren looked, the Rangers were indeed climbing up the wall. Like giant spiders, Feren thought humorously. As he looked on, one Ranger made it to the top. Waiting till the guard was right above him, he quickly leaped up, grabbing the torch, and swung himself, crashing into the guard. As the Ranger leaped at the guard, he saw him stumble back in astonishment, the scream that was coming came to late. The Ranger silently infiltrated the castle, finding the armory, and reported it to Andar. Then he, Kole, and the Rangers slipped into the castle, and sneaked into the armory. Kole started in surprise at the amount of weapons they had stored. Andar smiled, “Jackpot.” Kole blurted out in surprise, “Where on earth did they get so many weapons and armor!?” “I am guessing that this is a secret storehouse for weapons that they have gathered across Lenfald. Now they will return to their rightful owners.” Kole grinned, and they spent the rest of the night sneaking the weapons and armor out of the castle and into the Oakleaf Fortress.

I love how the more structured, textured, outcropped wall blends so well with the other walls with random stones! :)

Haven't Commented here... I let you down man. Anywho great job man, like others have said the texturing on the walls is epic, I personally think that some of your other builds have been a bit similar when you used the 1x2 masonry profile bricks over and over. This is a nice break from those, it looks awesome.

While it doesn't really matter anymore, your opponent gets my vote too. Still...excellent job Matthew! Considering you've been so pressed for time, you certainly gave an impressive showing here and it was very decent of you to offer some good competition to your opponent. Bravo! Cheers!

Well done. You were a worty opponent and a great builder. I really like the texture of the wall and the use of the legs in the windows.

Quoting Blake Baer Matthew, great job on this! The texturing in the walls immediately caught my eye. However, the build as a whole seemed to be shallow in comparison to your opponent's very well rounded creation. He gets my vote.
Thanks Blake! Oh yes, definitely agree, his creation was astounding. This also works, as I was going to resign anyway after R3, as I know I wouldn't have time in R4 (this was all going to happen if I did win, which i was 99.99% sure I wasn't), I am glad it worked out this way. :)
Quoting Mark Murphy This was well done Matthew, but unfortunately your opponent gets my vote because he better matched his quote to his build.
Thanks Mark! Yes, I Completely agree with you there!

Great moc! I like how you used the round studs in the walls. I think that window should have been Iron bars, or even just a long slit in the wall, but that is just my opinion.

Awesome! Love the texturing!

Very nice, though to be honest it looks a little odd to have most of the wall dilapidated and heavily textured while the large middle section is completely unblemished. :P

Stupendus! In my opinion this is one of your best mocs so far, may have just been the new wall texture combined with the new back drop (black), but what ever it was did it for me! Great work!
