Hello again! Here is my second build for the Warlords of Nocturnus challenge in the GoH forums on Eurobricks, which had to be built on more than a 32x32 baseplate.
This scene captures one of many victories during the Black Spire's campaign to extinguish the Nocturnian rebels and consolidate power over the entire dark lands.
Anfauglir was tasked with leading his forces into the Rakarth mountains and rooting out any factions unwilling to pledge their allegiance to Lord Raavage. He and his forces subdued one tribe after another until finally discovering a powerful and numerous group of orcs, goblins and trolls fortified in the deepest reaches of the Rakarths. For days Anfauglir and his undead knights fought with the ceaseless horde until finally driving it, and its leaders, to the very heart of the mountains. There the orcs were finally defeated in one last push by Anfauglir's men, where they were driven into the fiery depths of Nocturnus itself.
This victory, known forever as the Battle at Hell's Gate, solidified the respect of Lord Anfauglir among his troops and servants.
(In case this scene looks confusing or completely improbable, just keep in mind this MOC was to show the last moments of this battle in which the orcs were finally pushed out of their mountain fortress and into the fiery depths. In effect this MOC shows the "back door" of the Orc fortress, its absolute last place for the defenders to make a stand - unsuccessfully, of course.)
Thanks for looking! Any comments or criticisms are always welcome!
Patrick, once again man you've made my jaw drop with your incredible artistic ability. Your rock work is very well done, especially that center bridge made of rock, that looks so realistic. Brilliant Work like always Patrick -Ranger-
Fantastic. Absolutely stellar! I am very impressed by that rockwork. But I think that the placement and posing of the minifigs really makes this MOC. It gives it such a swarming, chaotic, hectic feel. Simply amazing work!
