War may be made out to be glorious, and at times that may be so. But death and hurt are a very real concept and always follows in the wake of war. Victory may be both Sweet and bitter. How do your characters deal with Victory? by celebration? or mourning? or a little bit of both?
Like my opponent, I was slightly pressed for time. But I still made what I think to be a great build for the final round of this awesome contest. Anyway, on to the build! :)
So for this round, the topic was aftermath. Which I knew most knights would most likely celebrate a victory. But some go to mourn and ask forgiveness for their deeds in battle. So for this round, I made three French knights going to a monastery to ask forgiveness.
An artistic shot of the knights walking into the monastery.
The stained glass windows. They were my favorite part of the build. You can't see them really well in the main pic, so I made sure to snap a shot of them for your viewing pleasure. :)
Another shot of the knights walking in.
The roof, which was really difficult to get right.
And another shot of the tombstones. They were a fun and new addition to the build that would really give it that church-ish feel. :)
Just wanted to give a shoutout to RBC and judges for hosting this contest. It was a blast and you can bet I'll be back next year. And another shoutout to Fraser to wish him good luck with the judges. Thank you for looking and C and C is always appreciated. Enjoy! :)
How did I never comment on this? Anyway, beautiful stain glass and nice work on the foliage and terrain. The stonework is a little weak but the excellent roof and doorway draw your attention away form that. Well done!

Aww, man! I had NO IDEA that the BBG had started. Maybe next year...
Wonderful build Jacob. The stained glass really brightens up the scene, as does all the bright green foliage/trees. One of my favorite parts of this build is the olive green leaf pieces on the roof, as it adds great texture and gives the chapel a worn look. Again, great build--you have my vote!
