Here is my entry to GoH, Challenge 2, Category A. For those who went to BrickWorld Chicago this year, you might have seen this in person. This was a fun quick build I did the night before BrickWorld started, and was an experiment in the wall technique that I have seen many times before, but have never been able to try due to my small collection. Through a quick BrickLink order, I ordered those parts thinking I would use them in a (secret) collab with a bunch of friends, but I used a different technique instead. Having these pieces left over, I decided (since I had the time), that I would try and enter this GoH challenge.
I had tons of fun at BrickWorld this year, being my first convention, it was amazing to meet/talk/have fun with many of my favorite builders and inspirations. For all those that I met/talked to, thank you for the very warm welcome, I had tons of fun at this convention with all of you. :) For those I didn't get the chance to meet, I'm sorry we we didn't get the chance this year, but I hope we will next year!
Alright, back to the creation. I received a few critiques when I posted this in the thread, but due to a busy day today, I was unable to make those minor corrections, but thanks for the critiques guys! I will edit this post with the story when I have the time to post it (and finish it ;P). So here is a quick summary:
Feren and his men were traveling to help his friend Simon get rid of the Drow from his lands. During one of their rest stops, Feren sent out his elite Rangers to scout ahead. When one of them didn't return, he and his lead archer/friend went out to search for him, knowing the general direction the missing Ranger took. Due to Feren's inhuman hearing ability, he heard whispering, and following it found this supposedly ruined castle, that was almost rebuilt. He and his friend sneaked up to the wall (Feren started climbing up), and heard the Ranger betraying their company to the Drow, and where they will be in a week.
That is what this build is about, I was going to continue the story in my 2 other entries, but (due to the time limit again, and life) I was unable to build them. So here is the summary of what was going to happen.
Build 2 Category B:
When the Ranger came back, they grabbed him, put him in chains, and brought him to Feren. However, he explained that he was actually leading the Drow into a trap. He told the Drow Leader the fastest way to intercept Feren's company, which happened to lead the Drow's army through a narrow rocky valley between 2 cliffs, the perfect ambush spot.
Build 3 Category C:
Feren led his men to the cliffs and split them, putting half his men on both sides. They spent the next couple days preparing for this ambush (gathering rocks, traps, etc). When the Drow arrived, the attack would begin (Which is what the MOC would have been about, the full scale attack/ambush).
That is the full story summary for what I "was" going to do for this Challenge, but didn't have time to build them all.
Thanks for viewing, and for those who read this whole this full post, I appreciate it. :) God Bless!
