Made to answer a question that's plagued me for a long time....
Also for a contest....
About this creation
How come in movies and books the archers never run out of arrows? Now we know why.
The Arrow Retriever is a rather curious individual. It is believed that the job started during King Gormagumby's eleventh great war. The story goes that the king was running out of wood to make arrows out of. His army was getting slaughtered, because they could only use short-ranged attacks. The king, who was known as a rather ingenious fellow, had an idea. He took the royal tennis ball-boy, and promoted him to Arrow Retriever. The lad saved the kingdom, and made pretty good pay as well. Hooray for the Arrow Retriever!
Just a few little snippets of trivia and random building facts:
-In case it wasn't clear in the main photo, the Retreiver is on the two guys in the background's team, and the arrow in front of his foot was just shot at him. That's why he's freaking out. You can see that a bit better in the first pic (second pic if you count the main pic as first). Also, he's depositing an arrow into the arrow basket. Just thought I'd mention that, because it could be interpreted as him stealing an arrow, and I in no way endorse stealing, unless it's for a good cause and you have a permit (this message brought to you by the mayor of Grenburn, the best place to buy your all-organic kitchen appliances)
-This was the first time I've ever really tried a layered, somewhat-messy ground. Most of my moc's up 'til now have had rather bland floors. You see just about my whole flat-browns collection right there. I had a lot of fun with it, and will probably do it again later on. Any advice on how to improve would be nice.
-I usually don't like using custom stuff, but I didn't have any of the antenna pieces to use as arrows, and couldn't think of anything else to use. Someone suggested that I use toothpicks, and it seemed like a good idea. The hat I just threw in for the fun of it.
Hope you enjoyed it! Please comment, or at least rate, it really brightens my day when people do.
