Ephram's Garden . Oh nooes! It's a plague worm!
Built for Nannan's Black Fantasy Contest and the ApocaLEGO Contest on Flickr. . Seeking refuge from the biomechanical horrors overrunning the urban centers, Dr. Ephram Dart and his two children fled into the trackless wilds of the great Eastern Plateau. Trying to rebuild their shattered lives, they established a small homestead and tried to begin again. Far from the blazing eyes of the vile machine creatures, amongst the pale flowers native to the plateau, hope seemed renewed.
The respite was short lived however, as foul poisons, carried on the winds from the fallen cities of the west, soon laid waste to the plateau. Plant and animal alike succumbed to a terrible rotting sickness that consumed everything in its path including Ephram’s eldest child. Now, with nothing left but his daughter, Zoe, and a withered garden as their final source of sustenance, Ephram struggles to defend this, their last refuge. Hope fails them one final time as the black hand again reaches forth, cloaked in the guise of a titanic Plague Worm.
Pictured here are the final seconds in the life of the esteemed Dr. Ephram Dart. The expression on his face seems to indicate a stunned resignation to his fate rather than the look of sheer terror one might expect. Zoe, on the other hand, doesn’t appear to be taking things as well…
EDIT- Many people have asked how to make the internal structure of the worm. It's actually very simple, just some technic axles, some #3 technic angled axle connectors, and a 4x4 cone with axle hole near the head to hold all the tentacles etc.
Barrel for catching rain water, electric fence powered by a salvaged solar panel, and a cute little scarecrow...which didn't seem to scare the worm.
At least Ephram's son has a grave. I don't think Ephram and his daughter will be so fortunate.
