LOM: TT Round 3: The Great Rider
Bear Bracket - Seeing the Sights - Guaire is a beautiful old city, filled with relics - so the Tourney heralds have decided to send some of the competitors on a city-wide scavenger hunt to find a series of sculptures! Have your character visit a statue or other brick-built stone figure (light bluish grey minifigures stuck on a plinth don't count). This category is judged on your ability to create lifelike 3D "stone" structures - other stonework is secondary and not required.
About this creation
The Tourney 2015.

My Guild is the Adolescent Chicken Foundation!!!

***



"That, Elias, is The Great Rider, a Rainosian war hero of old. He is said to have fended off an entire army of orcs all by himself. The way he did this is by positioning himself in a narrow gorge through which the orcs would have to pass. Only two orcs could fit through at a time, and The Rider slew them all, one after the other."
"Why?"
"Why what?"
"Why did he kill all those Orcs?"
"They were going to take land that wasn't theirs and kill many people in the process."
"Did he try to negotiate?"
"What?"
"Negotiate."
... "I'm not sure."
"He didn't, did he."
... "How about we move on. We need to find five more statues."
"Just like you didn't negotiate with that farmer."
*Smack*
"Ow!"
"If I had been anyone else, he would have sold me that flour. But because I am who I am, he refused."
"And you shot that cow and justified his actions."
... "We need to find the next statue. Let's leave"

I love this build. I wasn't sure about it as I was building, but it just looks great in the pictures.



Attack!



Artistic Shot #1



Artistic Shot #2, and an experiment with negative space.



Front.



Just the horse.



Runes, made with Guaire's characteristic dark red stone. This picture also has an artsy feel to it.



Landscaping.



The other side.



Final.


As I said, I love this Moc. I ran out of curves towards the front of the horse, so it looks a bit strange, the head is too small, and the front also looks weird because there are no 5x5 round plate or radar dish pieces. But I still love it.
I started with the rider. My guildmates then suggested to add a shield and a horse. They also told me to get rid of the high heels for the rider, which was a good idea. :P The lanscaping was last minute, as was the base. I hope that I don't get points off for forgetting to include my LOM character, but I included him and his apprentice in the story to make up for it.

Good luck to my Guildmates, and Go Adolescent Chicken Foundation!!!

I hope you liked it!

Very good shaping. I just feel the horse's legs could do with a bit of beefing up, but otherwise excellent work.

Quoting Julia LeeP Geez, this Quinon dude has some serious self-control/esteem issues. I mean, killling innocent cows, smacking children... he really should see a physiatrist :P Anyways, excellent build. Some of the parts (legs esp.) seem a bit out of proportion, but overall, this came together quite nicely. Good luck! :)
Sometimes I get the feeling that I'm trying too hard to make him evil. :P But then, back in the middle ages, it wasn't uncommon for parents to hit their children...

Fantastic shaping on that horse! Qinon really is a great character, btw. And his apprentice really draws out his personality. :P

Man this looks fantastic! Especially with all of it put together. Love the horse's head!

The final version of this build is fantastic! The base has a very artistic feel to it. I really love the horse, and you actually don't realize the size of the head until closer inspection. Great build and good luck!
