About this creation
Hey everyone! Here's the seventh MOC in my military history series. This is the fourth and final WWI creation in the series, and it shows a trench battle between Americans and Germans. Trench warfare was a major part of WWI, so of course one of my WWI MOCs had to focus on that type of combat. Since this features American soldiers, it must have taken place late in the war, but the trench that the scene is focused on is somehow relatively intact. Even no man's land still has a fair amount of green in it. This may not be all too realistic, but my dark tan pieces were running low so I had to make due with what I had left. :P Anyway, here are the picture descriptions:


Here, at the front of the build, you can see the back of the trench. As three American soldiers are attacking, the German forces are desperately trying to defend their position.


At the left side of the MOC, you can see one American soldier aiming his rifle down at a German officer. You can also see down the line of barbed wire that was built to slow down attacking troops. A small sapling was knocked over by an artillery shell, but one tree and a few plants nearby are still miraculously unscathed.


The right side of the MOC provides a view of a destroyed artillery wagon and the equipment it was carrying. The artillery piece was likely on its way to a position further down the German lines when American artillery landed a direct hit on it prior to the infantry charge towards the trenches. A German anti-tank rifle is seen lying between two posts of barbed wire; its user couldn't fire it point-blank within the trench itself once the Americans breached the defenses.


At the back of the MOC, you can see the tree that is still standing, along with some foliage and tree stumps. The destroyed artillery piece is also visible from this angle.

Well, that's all for this MOC! The next four builds will be from WWII, and I will hopefully be able to post the first one next weekend.

Hope you like it! Please tell me what you think in the comments!

Quoting Ivan Wanderer of the wasteland you should do a Gallipoli / Anzac moc!
That is a good idea. I think that sometime in the future I will make two 64x64 stud war MOCs, maybe one for WWI and one for WWII, and the WWI one could possibly be Gallipoli.

Trench warfare at its finest... Excellent work, Craniac! You can really feel the action in the narrow trenches and the layered ground looks very realistic. The exploded artillery wagon looks also neato! :)

Quoting Wolf Pack This is one of my favorites so far. The landscaping is nice, and there's quite a bit of detail. I also like how you used the armor as vests for the Germans. Great work!
Thank you! It's one of my personal favorites as well. The armor looks pretty close to what some German troops wore too, so I figured I could save some money and use those instead of buying more Brickarms vests.
