The Warlord Tzin Chow has slowly been making his way across the country, taking homesteads for his own and enslaving the people. This home is the last before the final push on the Emperor's Palace. Little does Tzin Chow know that the owner of this home is the former general of the Emperor's elite guard, Szun Tso. Tzin Chow has sent three of his finest warriors to claim the home and it's old, frail occupant. Three against one hardly seems fair, but general Tso figures if they're not smart enough to bring more, that's there problem.
Fourth Wall Commentary: The basic concept here originally came from Hans D's Meditation moc. Sure it doesn't look anything like it but that moc inspired my Elemental moc, which in turn inspired this so... in a round about way. You see where this is going. The rose bushes were inspired by Tom Simon's plant work. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the man has a gift. I was really happy with how the house turned out. That was the first element of this moc that I built. I wanted to do something "different" with the architecture and I think I pulled it off. For the stairs I wanted to give them some texture around the edges rather than leaving them flat so I used tank treads. The baseboard work I used some fun SNOT stuff to wrap around the bottom and then the two levels at the top. There IS actually an interior to this house as well. It's very minimal, but it's there. Stairs from the first to second floor and then a ladder from the second floor up into the roof. I may try to leave this together to bring to Brickworld but I'm planning some work on the house (my real house, not the moc) and it may not survive... We'll see what happens.
Thanks for checking it out!
Till next time true believers!
Wow, seeing this made me forget how much i love legos. I miss you chris, and I miss my legos! You probably don't even remember me, but youre still my hero and forever will be. I just recently rediscovered my collection and have been working on a project i really want my favorite builder to check out once im done.
Hey Chris. I'm checking in for April and am delighted to see this from you. Lovely job. Thanks for the foliage ref, and I'm gonna turn the tables on you and borrow the idea of your bushes here. It's also no surprise I like the usage of the tracks. I'll check back in monthly or so. I may even have an idea for a build, but mine will be quite modest from now on. I'm most keen on posting progress on my son's castle though. Later.
I really like how you utilized the trophies, and of course the tank treads on the stairs are my favorite. I can't believe how much Hans has been inspiring everyone with his MOC....what do they say about something freezing over??? :P
ouff! great scene chris! for a sec, i thought you did a story, i was very much looking forward this fight, with your talent...anything can be expected! i like the chain effect, the architecture is quite nice, and to me, fits the period very well, the exterior is my highlight of this moc, gorgeous! i d love so much to have palm trees! great work chris!
Very nice work, Chris! The first thing that caught my eye was the treads on the steps. Definately a genious move. I also love the Tom Simon-inspired greenery. Now, if you could just show a scene of the old man ripping those guys apart, I'd be truly happy:)
Love it Chris jam packed with detail, the coblestone road, the water fountain cascading, the plant life and the stoop are wild! I like the fact you made the horse back riders look so imposing!
Have you stopped by to see my stuff yet?
Much more humbler!
