So I know I haven't posted here in eons! But it's time to show you guys the real deal.
It's one of my most creative MOC's ever.
A naval commander I built for the March 2014 BZPower Flickr Contest.
A noble, self-righteous naval officer that does not take anything lightly. He captains a star Frigate by the name of HMS Superiority, and manages a large crew of capable "sailors". He is an elegant fighter, and an accomplished duelist. He sets the bar for honor and prestige, albeit prone to occasional fits of arrogance. He is a wise tactician who has gotten his crew out of a number of drastic situations.
This MOC was born out of a pirate MOC, which had to be repurposed for this contest, as I had posted a WIP of the pirate's head on BZPower prior to the contest, and thus was unable to use the MOC without changing the head. While I do admit that the pirate MOC did look cool and had a lot of potential, I have to say that I do like this version better.
This MOC uses the cleverest connection techniques for the coat, and has some very odd piece usage, which made it all the more fun to make! It was a long process for sure, one that took me almost 8 months from conception to this finished MOC. I definitely think it's one of my best works as of yet.
Thank you all for stopping by, and stay tuned for the PIRATE version coming soon!!!
