This is really a wonderful model. I built one for myself, a while ago. The articulation and pose-ability are quite fantastic. I'm also very glad I was able to find this again (the links on Classic Castle are broken because of your Brickshelf being emptied).
the eyes ...are shadows indeed
This rocky stuff is full of fun when it is placed next to a piece of castle wall...
Soldiers on the wall: "help~~!!! it is tearing the wall down...HELP~~~"
Even now...the soldier "in hand" is still smiling ^_^
This wins so hard, it's not fair. I almost thought that the eyes were shadows, you're very sneaky. Also, the bottom curviture of the cylindrical head piece makes for a great mouth. Those two things make this MOC seem like it's a lot bigger than it is. That's always a plus. I think you also did a good job of making it look like a stone statue. The odd angles and perfect color choice also help the overall feel. I love this.
This is a great build! The hands are great, the shape's great, the porportions are great. But I have to say that my favorite part is the head. It's a work of genius in my book. Fantastic work, hope to see more from you in the future. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman
