Category: Battle on the field
Now you may be thinking of this category as just a simple clash of mini-figures, but don't that that deceive you! There is a lot more to field combat than just running at each other.
Strategy, secret ambushes, pincer movements, duels...you get the Idea.
Now on to the Moc!
I decided to take a totally different outlook on this category. At first, my initial thought was, duh, castle. :P But I knew that to have any chance at a win this round, I would have to pull a really fat rabbit out of my hat, so to speak. :P
I decided somewhere along the way that a Captain America vs Hydra showdown on the field of battle set during WWII was going to be my plan. Although it was extremely difficult to get started because I had never built any modern(or close to modern)vehicles. So some studying along the way had to be done. And this was the product!
I'm particularly fond of this shot. It gives a good POV of the battle from an artistic shot, IMO.
Hydra's forces. No minfigs were harmed in the making of this Moc. Except for maybe the guy on the left. :P
Another rear-view shot of Cap's team charging in.
And now on to my more enjoyable parts of the Moc. This car was based off of an old WWII style German passenger car. More specifically, the Leichter Einheits PKW.
The doors open and close and the windshield can go up or down. And yes, the tires do roll. :)
Next, we have what I like to call the "Cap Tank". I based it off the WWII U.S. tank, the M4 Sherman. It's barrel gun is fully rotatable and the treads do roll on carpet.
Cap, his team, and the M4 Sherman based tank.
Red skull, his team, and the passenger car. I particularly liked this shot. Very thug-like. :P
Well, thanks for looking! C and C is always appreciated, and good luck to Graham with the judges this round! :)
Awesome sense of action! You have my vote! The landscaping was about equal to Graham's, but your addition of the car (kinda looks like a jeep to me) and tank won you my vote. The category may have been an iffy, but that depends on ones interpretation of field I guess. Close match.
Beautiful work most of the time during this contest I though your opponent was the clear cut winner. However this time I think the win might go to you it's very orginal build for your category. I always laugh at Captin America's little hat helmet thing just it just Dosen't suit him and he always takes it off in the movies
I like it

Hahaha! Very cool!! I like the idea and great build!! *Bleh* I just H@TE the new Captain America 'fig though... Ewww... Such bad colors... :P Great build though! Good luck!
Awesome! Go Cap go! Great action scene. The vehicles and landscape look great (I was quite impressed that you put a wire between the telephone poles). Despite all the great vehicles and such, my favorite part has to be the land mine explosion. I have never seen it done better, and actually I not sure I've ever seen it done at all. Nice work and good luck.
