The Tourney 2017: R1 - Golden Gold
Gold is the new gold. The hype continues.
About this creation

My guild, The Rodents of Unusual Size.

The Tourney 2017



I was walking through the jungle leaves, when a man walks up to me and hands me a bunch of rope -
"Go farther, dig deeper"
Man, I'm not here to do your digging!*
I threw that rope - ahem. Didn't see you there! I figured before the Tourney really gets going I should find a way to fund my adventures out here. Solution: abandoned gold mines. They wouldn't let me in the ones that weren't abandoned. So I found this one, and there's just dead people everywhere. And gold. Lots of gold, already mined out! I'm guessing whoever was left got out of here in a hurry.

*A parody of "Threw It on the Ground".



This one's missing an arm and a leg. Looks worse than a flesh wound. But hey, I get gold, so it's all good.



What's the worst that could happen, anyway? The shaft probably caved in on them or something. I doubt a cave monster got them. I don't think they exist.


The Build





Alternate main photo without the minecart. This gives a much better view of the caved-in section that my character used to get into the mine.



I really like this shot. So atmospheric. There's the rope he used to get down.



And the build, cart-less and fig-less. Not monster-less, though.



The next few shots are my attempts at photographing this build in "normal" lighting.



The dead guy.



A part of the mine that's been closed off. It didn't show up very well in the other pictures, so I gave it its own picture.



The minecart by itself. Pretty happy with how this turned out. It's close to minifig scale, too, which is a plus.

I originally wanted to do another FP atmospheric MOC, with my character diving into a vertical mineshaft, but I was short on time and didn't want to go out and get fishing line to suspend my fig midair. I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, though. The lighting is pretty much exactly how I wanted it. Thanks for looking, and good luck to all my fellow Tourney-ers!

Quoting Armon Russ You most certainly did NOT say gold enough times! This should be an instant DQ! D:< Anyway nice lighting. :P
I know I'll say gold more times when I get the right (golden) opportunity. It's a golden build, isn't it? I like the lighting too! It's kinda got a gold glimmer. Too bad it's too dark to see the actual gold in this build. Overall I'd say it's pretty gold, though. Thanks for your comment! It's pure gold.

Quoting Reese Hawthorne Excellent lighting as before, though I feel like the build itself isn't highlighted on enough. Perhaps try and upload some more fully lighted pictures? Anyway, good luck!
Yeah I agree. I might upload more. Thanks for the comment!
