Part 15: Universal Challenge: Fun in Tomeu . Join Rainos in the Lands of Mythron for more medieval fun and the chance to enter in epic siege competitions! . I know Iím going to get some complaints on this entry: ďNo scenery! No terrain! I expect better of you!Ē Frankly, Iím tired. I have done a lot of building in the past few weeks and this pair of models was done more for fun than anything else, because who doesnít like shooting stuff around? For once Iím not going to ask for constructive criticism because I already know that my toys work, but Iíll take a rating with pleasure. Now, on with the story: ~ ~ ~ Cast of Todayís MOC ~ ~ ~ Cedric the Bull: Legendary leader of the Bull Knights from KK1 back in í99. Dresses fancy in this scene. Sergeant Steven: Bull Clan legionnaire, protagonist, and epic warrior with split personalities. Carries a grey shield. Sergeant William Farrer: Bull Clan soldier and Stevenís best friend. Has a green hat and one eye. Private Igor: Stevenís kid second-cousin, a relatively new recruit with a pointy helmet. Elon: Elfish recruit to the Bull Clan who used to live in a cave. Prettiest of the Bull Clan warriors in this scene. Argo: Another elf and the kinsman of Elon. Hasnít quite signed on as a Bull Clan soldier, and thus doesnít wear the uniform or any shirt at all. ~ Lots of other Rainosians ~ ďHey, you lot! Where are you from?Ē ďNorthern Rainos and the tunnel between the islands. Iím Sergeant Steven of the Bull Clan.Ē ďReally? Iíve heard about some of your work. Iíll give you another promotion if you handle yourself well in this little get-together. Iím Cedric the Bull.Ē Some of the new arrivals gasped. ďWell, stop gaping. Orders are to stay back from that town and let the bandits do the actual fighting. Our job is mostly to prevent people from fleeing with anything valuable, but no one said we canít shoot stuff at the dump. Go man some engines!Ē Thatís about all for the story, really. Cedric the Bull shoots stuff at the bad guys in the same way he always used to do with his cannons and catapults back in King Leoís kingdom. Stevenís going to be bumped up a level, too, because I completed a second rank challenge earlier and didnít give him a promotion for that yet. Now, questions: Q: Why are the elves taller than they were in the caves, and why did some of them join Stevenís party? How did they get to Tomeu, anyway? A: Iíll do a MOC to fill in the gaps later, and it will have the long-haired King of the Ibers in it. Hold on. Q: Do those siege engines actually work? A: Yes. Theyíre purist builds AND historically accurate! The ballista uses a winch, a pair of chains, and tension from two long poles I bought with an old Adventurers set. I modified the design from a normal bow I crafted for a BioMOC, but the crossbow fittings cut its range down to about five feet rather than ten. The catapult uses a pair of reins from one of the first (and my only) Star Wars sets entitled ďGungan PatrolĒ to give it its power, and can throw a one-by-one cylinder a whopping one foot. This makes it approximately equal to the larger catapult of similar design that I built out of real wood and rope a few years ago, if one accounts for scale. Now for the bonus feature: More Indecisive Action, the spoof on the MOCpages war game I started because I donít have time to seriously compete! United Anarchistsí Land Offensive Power ďThis thing wonít explode if I pick it up, will it?Ē For more midi-figure madness, click here and support my infantry squad with your ratings! I might not be in the order of battle, but Iíd love to win anyway!
