Part 11: Giant-Slayer Rank Challenge: Fire for Water . They said show your character killing a custom-built midifigure, so I killed a custom-built midifigure. Oh yeah, please go join Rainos in the Lands of Mythron group. Also, this is much shorter than my last page to minimize harm to viewers.

Steven the Legionnaire
The Black Knight XXIV
A few days have passed since Bull-Clan soldiers Steven, Farrer, Igor, and the formerly cave-bound elves Norel, Argo, Elon, and Gib escaped the dreadful subterranean passage between Rainos and Mythron and they have now made camp while on their way to visit a Rainosian king in Falmore. While the others find firewood and set up tents, Steven goes off in search of water.
Well, this should be the way to the well those villagers told me about. Funny that they were so helpful; it didn’t look like they were happy to see foreigners in their town.
Steven draws his sword and shield from their place on his back as an extra precaution as he approaches the strangely oversized well.
It looks all right, but with another step….
A giant warrior unexpectedly appears in front of the pit’s superstructure.
“Halt,” spake the knight in tones of iron and death. “This well is the property of the Black Knight. To approach it is to die by his hand.”
Steven raised his weapons, but something was bothering him.
“Which one?” he asked.
“Which hand? Either one. Does it matter?”
“No, which Black Knight are you? The Black Knight of the Bridge, the Black Knight of Reedus, the Black Knight of the Lost Chapel, or the Black Knight of the Falcon? There have been about two dozen Black Knights, as far as I know.”
“I am the Black Knight who is the Black Knight of the well which is the Black Knight’s! Now you shall die, impudent stranger.”
As it spoke, fire gushed from gaps in its armor and formed a searing tongue of incendiary energy in its right hand.
Oh, not another one, Steven thought.
Steven fired his crossbow.
“Now to get some water… Oh bother, I forgot the canteens.”

This was a nice, quick, easy build as you can see. I told you I was sick of intricate terrains after that last MOC, didn’t I? Anyway, the main feature was the Black Knight, who I built as the… fifth, I think… in my series of clip-to-clip-joint midi-figures. The Black Knight, done with a KK2 style in mind, pulls off his angular, spiky features very well, and is supposed to resemble Lord Vladek from that good old series. He even has the same face.
I threw in some pictures of his poses and construction, as well as some comparison photos to Tinker, my default self-MOC.
