SHIPtember MOC by Becheman

Postby Bruce N H » Tue Sep 08, 2015 4:22 pm

Hey all,

Here at Classic-Castle we usually don't pay a lot of attention to the space-focused SHIPtember event, but Becheman's cross-themed Templar Chapterhouse really grabbed my attention. He describes this as:
Friday, October 13, 1307. Agents of King Philip move to arrest scores of French Templars. But - they were forewarned. The majority of Christian forces being at war in the Holy Land, the Templars used their vast wealth to take control of France and Western Europe, joining with the german Teutonic Knights to form a united, solid holy powerhouse.
Centuries later, with new worlds to conquer, Templar warriors continue to fight to bring wealth to their masters.

Very cool, even if it is a digital design rather than real bricks. :P Truth be told, I probably wouldn't have noticed if one of the Flickr comments hadn't spilled the beans. I particularly like rotating wings (architectural, not aerodynamic) towards the rear, presumably containing the VTOL engines - makes it easy to disguise as a regular cathedral when it's on the ground.

A wonderful concept and really well executed. Made me think of the Inquisition from Warhammer 40K. I wonder if we'll see more of this..
