TT Round 2- Caleb R. vs. Stephen Boe . Round 2! . The Tourney 2014
Guild: Crimson Knights.
My opponent, Stephen Boe. Interesting story here. I tried to recruit Stephen to the knights, and I thought I had him, then at the last second, Halhi and someone else (I don't remember) swayed him over to the Average Gnomes. A shame it is, as he is a great builder! Now, I am faced against him.
Category: Sprinting Event
- Build an event-like scene depicting your character in some sort of running race (or a relay race with other minifigures in your guild (can be imaginary guild members). You decide the terrain of the race. Since this is an event, sidelines of friends, family, and fans can definitely be present as well as judges to verify who wins the race. You do not have to have a start and finish line (or either) as part of your build. Are you quick enough to move on to the next round?
I would also like to clarify that the figure I say is "The Masked" is his representative, and not necessarily him, for obvious security reasons ;)
The five contestants stood at the beginning of the race, the crowd watching them.
Bellow was the first obstacle. The horn suddenly blared: the race had begun.
The Masked waited 2 seconds before he moved; long enough for the other four to slide down the ramp.
The representative from the Average gnomes was a few steps ahead by the time The Masked jumped.
He landed in the middle of the first obstacle, squatting as his feet touched the stone. He then prepared for his second jump.
Meanwhile, The average gnome was close to making it over, as was another contestant. However, the contestant in last had grabbed onto him.
The Masked landed with his hands on the rock: the second obstacle. However, the Gnome had grabbed onto his leg, keeping him from climbing up
Two of the others where clearing the first obstacle. The last contestant had been pulled off of the obstacle. He had tried to grab something to stay on, but instead, his hand was removed by one of the spikes.
The Masked was pulled off the rocks by the Gnome, and the both tumbled to the ground. The other two raced to the rock.
The Masked grabbed the Gnome by the shirt and threw him against one of the other contestants as the other began climbing the rocks.
The Gnome was thrown to the ground while The Masked grabbed the remaining contestant's legs.
They tumbled back and the other contestant cracked his head against the rock.
Meanwhile, the Gnome fought to gain the lead.
The Gnome was thrown against the rocks. The Masked began to stand up, winded from the fall.
The third contestant crawled through the gap in the rocks.
"You go first," The Masked said. "Neither of us will win if we keep fighting."
The third contestant was already making his way across the final obstacle.
The Masked emerged from the gap as the Gnome balanced on the first wooden pole and the remaining man tried to maintain his balance on one of the second ones.
As soon as the Gnome jumped to the second pole, The Masked jumped onto the first. The other man managed to regain his balance.
The Masked jumped at the other man as the Gnome jumped for the third pole.
The Masked knocked the third opponent off pole.
The Gnome jumped to the finishing platform.
The Masked jumped at the platform before the Gnome had a chance to pull himself up.
The Masked used his momentum to push the Gnome aside.
The Gnome lost his grip and fell.
The Masked scrambled onto the platform, the victor.
Some shots of the build now.
Overall view of most of it.
Obstacle #1 and #2
And now some shots of the walls ;)
To be honest, I misread the category and thought it said it HAD to have a start and finish. Turns out it needed neither :P
Good luck Stephen! See that, I spelled it right the first time ;)
