LOM: UC: The Wolf
About this creation


The spray crashed against the hull of the Wolf as it sped along the eastern shore of Bodus. To the right, forests, mountains and icy plains stretched to the horizon. To the left lay the Sea of Myths, only broken by a single, large but desolate island.



The Wolf was designed as a war ship. It did not glide effortlessly through the water like the ships common in the southern regions. No, this ship dug into the water like a shovel into fresh earth, generating a satisfying resistance. It was built to weather the turbulent waters of the Howling Sea, which often carried boulders made of ice.
On board, Qinon was satisfied with her performance. His contact in Meids had provided him with high quality instruction, and Qinon had then passed the instructions on to the Larpang shipbuilders, who had built the Wolf under his supervision. Now, the Wolf was on it's first mission, a supply run to Nerogue.



Well aware of the Enalican Blockade, Qinon had brought along two of his newly trained archers as well as three soldiers. It seemed like a trivial amount, but more were not needed: the ship had been built so that it could reverse direction if necessary, and was equipped with a ram. And if that was not enough to clear the Wolf's path, its combination of oars and sail made it faster than most others, despite its weight. Qinon never considered fleeing the best option, but it had to be kept an option. Especially since the archers and soldiers would be dropped off at the Nerogue coast to aid Nerogue in their struggle against the Mythronian army.



Elias had come, too. Now, he looked out across the Sea of Myths. What could lay beyond that distant horizon? There were many tales of other lands away from the isles of Mythron. But what was really there? As the ship sailed on, his head dreamed up fantasies that only children could ever imagine.



While the two archers practiced their aiming, the captain of the ship was worried. Besides the troops they were delivering, they hadn't brought much. Back in the howling sea he had been worried that the ship may not handle the storms and all the supplies would be lost... now he worried they had not brought enough supplies along. The three hundred flaming arrows, contained within the boxes on deck, would certainly be useful, but he couldn't shake the feeling that it was not enough...

Yes! It opens to reveal the sixteen rowers. The rowers are the reason that the ship looks taller than it should.

The sail. This was really hard to make, and took me several tries.

Qinon and the three soldiers. Their arm color may or may not change to olive green.

The original main picture.

I enjoyed this build a lot. Making the custom hull was challenging, but fun. I think it looks great. It's meant to be sort of a cross between a greek trireme and a typical viking ship, but I'm not a ship expert, so if anybody wants to tell me what kind of ship this looks like in the comments, go ahead. Also, I believe that this is the third largest ship in the LOM, falling just short of 60 studs long, with the first and second places being Gilbert's Mirror and Thomas's Sapphire.
My camera had an error during the picturetaking, so all the best pictures disappeared, including the views from the front and the left side. LOM ships have a tradition of being displayed on their right side, so I wanted to change it up, but the pictures disappeared, so I guess the right side will have to do for now. I'll retake them Saturday, so check back for better pictures.

EDIT: I retook the pictures and added some new commentary. None of the actual build was changed, though, so it shouldn't interfere with staff judging.

I hope you enjoyed it!

Overwhelming great! The hull is solved pretty sleek. The Wolf both on the sail and as galeon-figure is an real eyecatcher. I would add an scorpio ( big war crossbow) on the deck. Excellent Work!

Quoting Halhi 141 I see what you mean, but my point is just that it doesn't really look all that great. Isaac's builds may not be especially textured, but they always have a nice good aesthetic appeal through things like color schemes, architectural details, interesting layouts, etc. here, to me, it seems more like just a (well shaped) block of brown.
You can't deny that the sail is epic, though.

I see what you mean... I'll remember that for my next ship when I go for the LOM record (sizewise, that is). :P It'll probably be my Explorer challenge...

Quoting Halhi 141 Okay... Technically, this is well done. The angles and snotwork overall are good. However, aesthetically, I just don't think it's the most successful. It seems very stagnant due to things like the lack of any water, fairly plain hull, relatively basic fig posing (I'm a hypocrite, I know), lack of texturing or any specific details....I can really see a lot of effort here, but I'm just not quite seeing the kind of results that I'm used to seeing from you - after that TTR4 entry, I know you can do better aesthetically!
I agree. I planned to give this build a base similar to the base of the Barquan Dromon (over on GoH), but I ran out of time. I focused more on the general shape and colors of the ship than the details, which resulted in a very smooth surface and not much texture. Consider it a build in Isaac's style.

Nice brick built trimene (SP?). The curves on it had to be a pain.

This has o to be the best ship MOC I've seen, the curves and angles are just right plus each end of the boat is highly detailed, I have no critique for this.

That hull looks really good. It is a tad large, but you gave it a decent backstory to explain that quirk, so no complaints there. Also, the sail is ace.

Lovely sail! I like the shaping as well! It does seem a little tall for both a trireme or a Viking longboat, but you can blame that on some miss-measurements by the Outlaw shipwrights. ;)
