My entry into the Guilds of Historica Book II Challenge III Category B - Deceiving Elves
The elves worked diligently and efficiently to help stop a dwarven invasion on Avalonia and the Drow, to prevent war and promote peace. They sent out scouts on their newly tamed wargs and built towers to detect any sign of dwarves, and to stop them. Unfortunately, despite their efforts, it all came to nothing.
The dwarves secretly mined underneath their very nose, and gained entry into Avalonia, ready to take war on the Drow..."
Phew! I can't believe I finished it in time! Thanks to the extension of the deadline and a canceled family gathering, I had enough time to finish my second entry into the GoH Challenge. Once again I experimented in one of Grant Davis's techniques that he created in his creation "Undermining." (If you have not checked out Grant's creation yet, what are you waiting for!? Go give it a look! ;) ) Tons of fun to build, making all the little sections of rock pieces fit together was so much fun (although very delicate)!
The details on the top were also fun to add, I finally got to use my wargs! :D Even though wargs in LOTR are evil, I always though they were kinda cool, so if you could tame them...they could be quite lethal and well worth the effort. ;) Also, in the Guilds of Historica there are many unusual/odd/weird/not-quite-right mounts, so elves riding wargs in GoH isn't actually all that weird IMO. :P
All in all, a decent build, there are a few more things I would have liked to try if I had more time, but deadlines are deadlines. ;)
Brilliant work Matthew! I'm very impressed with how well you've been both building and photographing lately. Ingenious build! The top portion has just the right amount of detail and the rock portion is stellar.
