The Hateful Eight – The Stagecoach
On RogueBricks we're currently running a Quentin Tarantino movie contest. Usually I never get around taking part in those but this time I just had to submit something.
The Hateful Eight is a lengthy but great western that has but two locations: Minnie's Haberdashery and – if you want to call it that – the dark red stagecoach that is on it's way to said establishment.
The latter is something I had thought about building for a long while so it was important to me to capture both it's shape as well as the horses pulling it in the best possible way. The result is a very different way of creating the rounded shapes of the stagecoach but something I'm quite happy with. And: It even seats two minifigures!
In this scene Major Warren is forced to dispose of his guns in order to step closer to the carriage that will save him from the incoming blizzard and eventually bring him to Minnie's Haberdashery.
Let me know what you think of it!
(Fun fact: The image's aspect ratio is the same in which the film was shot ;) )
