No Loyal Friend

This symbolic scene depicts the moment in The Lord of the Rings when Smeagol (soon to become Gollum) steals the ring from his cousin, Deagol, and evil takes hold of him. Tim Lydy has done an exceptional job with this scene. Everything fits together so well. The scene is almost idyllic, with the water, grass, fishing boat, tree (made from a dragon tail!) and the look of happiness on Smeagol’s face. It is almost easy to overlook the dead body of Deagol and the looming shadow about to possess him forever.

Fjollum Great Hall – Inside and Out

This medieval pile has rather unique walls. This technique is most often used for floors but Isaac S. has done a great job of incorporating it into the exterior walls of this hall. But the features of this model do not stop there. Isaac has built a very believable interior into it as well. I really like the cheese-slope mosaic, featuring the coat-of-arms, on the lower floor.

Dentistic Sadistic – “Now that is a Tooth!”

crises_crs has concocted this fun, if a bit demented, scene. The backdrop is nicely done and the smattering of details adds to the “realism” but it is the posing of the figures and the expressions on their faces that make this work for me. Plus I love those giant teeth laying all about…

Creepy to the 10th degree

Grant Davis is rapidly becoming one of the premiere Castle builders out there. His latest build shows why. He has done more than master techniques. Grant has learned how to tell a story without words. The single picture speaks volumes and leaves the viewer wanting more. This particular build has a sense of the macabre that makes you step back and a sense of mystery that pulls you back in. It’s very well executed.
