Omg! It has been to long. No, I did not fall of the face of the Earth. No, my Lego collection did not melt in a metor accident. Yes, my computer crashed and it is only now that I have had access to actually load these models up.
St. George and the Dragon was supposed to be for the MocAthalon but thats when my computer crashed... right as I was previously typing this up. I choose St. George and the Dragon to represent the Myth, Legends, and More category because the only models in there were Greek mythology and I'm sorry you can only take that so far. I choose to Miniland scale to continuely prove that I am a leader in the field mainly because no one else build in it... And now I understand why. Landscaping is an art form of itself in Lego, it doubles that difficulty as you move into a large scale.
The above picture was the only one that looked good not in color. The below pictures of the characters, props, and scenery.
St. George-Hero. He of course has the traditional armor but I kinda sorta based this whole model off my favorite version (with pictures) of the story. The sword and Shield were the hard parts of this guy even thought they are just props. The cape never turnedd out right... plus that was the last part of the build so I was pretty much fed up with the entire thing.
The Sacrifical Maiden. This was actually my favorite part of the whole model. It turned out from the very beginning. I am very proud of how life liked it looked. In those chains you can just see her dispair as see waits for her final seconds. Note: she is only being held up those chains.
The Noble Steed. This was by far the hardest to build. I have to thank a few people, unfortunatly I can't remember their names, for the wonderful pictures that they took of the horses used for "Hittit Charriot". I honestly had 3 pictures to base it off of and that neck is a pain in the .... neck.
The Dragon. Ahh the Dragon. Bigger then anything on the model, taking up a full quarter of the landscaping yet it was only twice as big as the horse. Please excuse the stand as I built this from head to tail and the body just decided to show up. I loved the dragon head because of its beautiful shape. I have to thank my team mate in the MocAthalon but once again I have forgot all names, but he developed the tongue technique which was awesome... You will see it in a later picture.
On to some props. The wagon. In the model it is on its side but whatever. This is a later picture then the main model. I added a sit to it for effect. Please note that even though it is just a prop it is fully functional and that the wheels do move and turn like a real wagon.
The Broken Spear. I thought it would add to the effect if it showed that just because St. George is all holy and fluff he wasn't going to defeat evil easily. I know that the 1x1 top grabby plate is a cheap way to represent something broken but again whatever.
Ahh the challenge... How to get the small space between a miniland man legs to fit around the giant horse. The answer? Make sure he doesn't mind being high-pitched for a while.
The over all model. I will let you enjoy the scenery but I will add something here or there.
The burning ruins of a once magnificent hall.
Bucket of water anyone>
This is my favorite picture of them all. Whats more scary then seeing fire coming at you from all sides with the dragon staring you in the face? mwhahaha
