GoH- An Avalonian Blood Vessel
About this creation
Many Avalonians have been stricken by the plague. Some flee, others are quarantined, still others seek the help of alchemists and doctors. Inside all of them, though, one force is constantly striving to combat the ravages of the plague: the white blood cells!

GoH- An Avalonian Blood Vessel

The dastardly plague viruses might seek to destroy their victim, but their foes are always vigilant!

GoH- An Avalonian Blood Vessel

Outside, great forces move, trying to stop the spread of the plague. No recognition or acknowledgement is given to the humble immune system. But do they care? No! These steadfast cells devote their lives to the service of humanity. In these days of trial, let's always remember their sacrifices, along with those of the larger Historicans.


This was built for Guilds of Historica Challenge II, Cat. C. This category carried the prompt: "Depict a character working to suppress the plague (road closure, quarantine, etc)..." It would seem, however, that the character could be any size. Surely nobody could deny little Harold the leukocyte his chance to enter?

Although I know I'm not the first person to use this piece in a moc, I was fairly proud of this NPU, so it merits a mention ;)

Fig Microbe-less!

I think I did a fairly good job making the blood vessel walls, or at least the floor, curved. Nevertheless, I am compelled to admit that my perception of blood vessels comes entirely from Magic School Bus, so feel free to critique :D

Thanks for viewing!

Thomas this is super creative and unlike most of the stuff out there right now. Keep up this outside of the box thinking. Also, that creature is really creepy.

Quoting Evan Botkin Magic School-bus FTW! Nice job on this MOC and nice use of the Piece of Resistance. You're the first person I've seen use it for something other than it's intended purpose.
Yeah! Thank you!

Wow! Thanks so much! EDIT: You complain about my inaccurate microbiology in your blog post. If you require complete accuracy in terminology, I would suggest asking an AFOL who works in the field. Me? I'm just here to build with Lego.
