Deathmist Raptor


Recommended Posts

Beware what's lurking in the forests of Tarkir... not all is as it seems.

Not much to this really. I recently got into Magic The Gathering and fell in love with the design of the Deathmist Raptor. So I wanted to try and translate that design into a LEGO model, and I guess I succeeded somewhat. It's quite a mix of Constraction and System, it contains 629 bricks and it took about 9-10 hours to construct. Due to the lack of much-needed reddish brown and dark orange, so-called "earthy" colours, this is an LDD sculpture. Not much else to say really, so I'll let the model speak for itself.

Whoa.

 

As a recreation of the card it's excellent, but it's also really good just on its own. I really like the design of the frill and the neck. I think the face could use some work, but I can't say much 'cause I could never do something like this.

 

How about you make my whole deck in LDD? :P

 

Thanks. About half the build time was spent on the face and neck (I start with the face and build around it), probably could be better but sometimes I wish there were smaller detail and structural parts to help fill out builds like this. I admit I'm not particularly happy with the current solution for the various face and frill barbs but until a Viking horn with clip comes out it'll have to do  :P

 

As for making your whole deck in LDD... give me 6 months  :P But in all seriousness, this was fun to do so I may do some more Magic The Gathering themed builds in the future. The Eldrazi monsters in particular look like they'd translate well into my style of MOC'ing.

, that looks good. The Serra Angel I built like ages ago is crying now because of how bad t looks in comparison to this. :P Big fan of the torso; you really managed to hit the organic feel there. Either way, loving the presence of more MTG MOCs here. Even if it's an obnoxious tournament mythic. :)

 

Speaking of other stuff you should build, I bet Kaladesh'll be great for MOCing with; I suspect the steampunk aesthetic will come out really well when translated to Lego.

Niiiice.

 

Before I found out it was based on someone else's illustration, I was going to rag on you about the pronated hands, but since that wasn't your idea, I really don't have anything to complain about. Very nice work on the details, color scheme is held to very nicely, and I love the foot construction you've got going there.

And your light shines bright - yes so much brighter shine on


We will remember - Until the skies will fall we won't forget


We will remember


We all shall follow doom
