Battle at Skergat Pass

Postby soccerkid6 » Sat May 31, 2014 12:38 pm

This is my Category C entry to Challenge 2 in Guilds of Historica. I've been meaning to do a large landscape with lots of tilted plates for a while now. Most of the larger plates are simply resting in place (though they're held there by the stuff around them), the smaller plates by the ruins are all actually attached.

As soon as the scouts had reported to Glorfindel that a Black Spire army would be traveling through Skergat Pass, Glorfindel ordered his men to prepare for an ambush. The Mitgardian soldiers were soon concealed along the ridges on both sides of the ravine. Once the Black Spire army was well into the pass, Glorfindel signaled for the attack. Pouring down the sides of the ravine his men had both the advantages of surprise and the higher ground.

@mpoh98: Thanks Matthew, the tilted plates worked nicely to conserve parts too, as I could use a 6x8 plate rather than a bunch of 2x6, 2x8, etc. stepping up :)

@Finn Tegotash: Thank you :)

@Brickninja: Thanks :)

Isaac, this is really terrific. The landscaping by itself is really natural feeling, and your use of only three colors is good in that it doesn't get too busy when you add figs. Then the fig action you put on top is great as well. It doesn't just look like just a bunch of figs stuck around, but rather it looks like a realistic flow of action in the battle. Great job all around.

@Bruce N H: Thanks Bruce! I'm glad you like the simple color-scheme of the landscape and the fig posing. I really wanted to capture a lot of action with the figs :)

@Sir Erathor: Thanks Erathor :)

@Justin M: Thanks Justin!
