Ajax The Great...Spear Side

While surely we’ll still chum around and admire each other’s work after this, lets be clear that this Iron Builder competition between me and Guy Himber is a battle. We are two well known talented builders with formidable reputations and wits to match. In order to compete against the likes of my friend Guy one would need a legendary warrior with a powerful disposition.


I present to you Ajax The Great! He is a centaur...the most legendary of the mystical beasts and his very name means “greatest warrior” in Greek. He wears a Hoplite helmet and armor and carries a spear and shield. While mostly white, he is adorned with coppery elements that serve as a salute to my competitor’s Steampunk leanings. His form uses a staggering 54 of the 1x6x3 1/3 white curved arch elements required in accordance with the Iron Builder competition. He is also endowed just say...Hurculean attributes designed specifically to intimidate my friend and competitor. And by Hurculean attributes I mean his big...hard...throbbing...vein laden...monstrous...pulsating...unrelenting...biceps! He’s got two tickets to the “gun show” and both guns and all four hooves are going to be used to turn Guy Himber into pulp!


While Guy resorts to creating fake profiles and padding his own images with his own comments in order to create the illusion of popularity, I rely solely on heart, artistry, strength, skill...and the undying adoration of You The People. You have quickly made my first entry one of my most popular and talked about creations of all time and I am certain that this centaur will fare just as well. I thank you, in advance, my friends for your comments, faves, and praise for it is through my win that your voices will be heard.
