About this creation
My MOC for the final round of The Tourney.
The Category is Last Man Standing, wherein the final competitors are tasked with bringing the most epic one on one duel to the death. Imagine some fantastic music please.
My opponent is Jaapxaap.
As for the creation, I'm pretty happy with it. I tried to make the most epic thing possible, like maybe a burning mine (inspired by, you guessed it, a movie I haven't watched, namely Mask Of Zorro), but, I don't know... I'll probably lose. So my congratulations to Jaapxaap in advance. A couple notes are that in every Tourney entry I included a palm tree, (this one inspired by theBrickAvenger), which do you like best? Also that, per request in the category, I do have some FP here. If you look for it in the entrance to the mine you'll see a micro cart and a thinning of the railroad, as well as a small exit into the open air again. Meanwhile, I hope you all like my MOC! For more pictures just head over to flickr, but here is the main picture and lots (quite outrageous amounts) of cool shots which aren't on flickr yet:

There it is (24 pictures later..)! Well, there is a little something more, but nothing to boast of. Please do me the favour of not laughing (The Duel).

Quoting TMNS 5097 Amazing. Everything about this is so AMAZING! The support beams are really cool looking! I must ask, what camera do you use? I can't upload high quality pictures without the uploader booting them out. Thanks! Great job! God bless! :)
Thank you! I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's something like an OLYMPUS M.14-42mm F3.5-5.6 II R...
Quoting Grant Davis No time for an essay, but you get my vote. Arguments can be made for both being the better entry, but I think you just edged him out. (Sorry for being really late, I switched who I was voting for more than a few times... I needed the time to meditate on who I wanted to vote for.)
Thank you! Glad to have you make me win this time just like you made me lose last time ;) , and take your time, it's always most important to make a cool decision.

Holy crap it feels weird to be back on MOCpages, but its so sad to see how the mighty community of MOCpages has died out. In its prime, this bad boy would have had like 150 likes. Oh well, congrats on getting one vote so far though!! Its gonna be so close, man!

You each took a very different approach to the category, and each approach was effective. As Reese noted, there were some things about each entry that could be improved, in your case the biggest issue is the busyness of the scene which makes it hard to discern exactly what is going on without close examination of several pictures. However, your build is also very action packed and stuffed with details. The small windmill, and mine tunnel with micro mine cart are some of my favorite touches. In the end, my vote goes to Jaapxaap, though this was certainly not an easy decision.

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus Wooden construction is one of your strong points. I love to see you use it more.
Well, I do use it a fairly good deal.. and after all, I don't want to pump out the same sort of stuff too often ;) . Thank you, however! I have noticed the same thing over time.
Quoting Sam J. Excellent! Good luck! I'm rootin' for you!!
Nice to know that, it was a pleasure when I competed against you ;) .
Quoting --R.K. Blast-- My one constructive criticism would be that it looks very BUSY. Slightly cluttered. But overall, it's very good! --Blast--
Yeah, I felt that way towards the very beginning, but I figured it was realistic and kept plugging along, hope it was worth it ;) .
Quoting Reese Hawthorne In the end, my vote goes to Navarre.
Glad to hear that! Now I can't lose worse than last contest at least (I mean the MO), though I'll probably still lose... As for you're critiques, yes, it's cluttered, and lots of my work (like the rocks) is sadly covered up, but I wanted to make the duelists be at the very top, and I knew from the beginning that the concept would result in clutter (not very wise, I think now). However, I'm kinda glad to hear that the duelists are indeed the focal point: I was planning that the whole time, so even if it's at the MOCs expense it is nice to know ;) . Kinda funny too that I seem to often build just what you had imagined :P . I take it it's good though, hehe. Thanks for the vote, you have preserved my opinion of your voting skills :P !

This was an incredibly tough decision; before I begin I would like to congratulate you both for making it this far. These are two excellent entries from equally talented builders. Iíll go over each MOC individually to help streamline my thoughts: Navarre - This MOC basically encompasses what I had in mind for an epic duel. Overall I like everything; all the little details and angles are excellent, especially the burning section and minecarts and rail at the bottom. The main issue with this build is the layout. It is very cluttered, which isnít always bad, but in this case it detracts a bit. What I think you should have done is stretched the build up and out toward the viewer/camera more. Then you could have pulled out some of the scaffolding and given it more depth. Also, I probably would have cut back on some of the scaffolding; thereís so much it takes a while to understand what all is going on with it. Secondly, the building on top is almost entirely covered up by the scaffolding. I think it would have looked better if the building played a more prominent role and was lifted up higher and possibly enlarged. Basically, now that i think about it, your build didnít have a focal point; the closest thing would be the duelists themselves. That is why the clutter doesnít work here; your eye gets drawn all over the place. Anyway, onto Jaapxaapís build - While not what I was picturing in my head, your concept is excellent and is pulled off very well. The walking house is an incredibly cool idea and is built well; Navarreís micro-ship is also amazingly built. However, your the landscaping definitely detracted from the build in this case. While it is built decently, the focus of the MOC (the two contestants battling it out) is in the back right side while a large river and some trees litter the left side. It would have been better to center your focus more, I think, and then add in details like the trees and river in the background. My only complaint with the actual house is that the arms are somewhat stumpy; basically they kinda just emerge from the body and sit there, but there isnít much feeling of movement. In the end, my vote goes to Navarre; despite the clutter of the scaffolding, there is an immensely high level of detail throughout the whole MOC. Keep in mind that this is only by the slimmest of margins; once again, thank you for entering and good luck with the other judges.

I think this counts as pretty epic. :P Also, though I can see where you would call this western-ish I think it still fits well with the fantasy/castle setting in the Tourney. Good luck!

I really like the burnt wood effects. It's a very interesting scene overall, with an epic duel. Well done!

Hi there, I must say, this is a great creation! Not really in castle style, but a great creation. It truly looks like lots of things are burning. I think you have a great shot at winning the contest. Although I haven't seen the build of Jaap just yet. Greetings and good luck! Elio
