A Night in the Swamp

Finally! Dim lights were slowly swinging in the foggy darkness that was surrounding the little boat. Phineas Tortelli, famous adventurer, and his two companions Vin and Shani had finally reached their destination: The mysterious Beshog settlement, a village made up of stilt houses, inhabited by an orc clan. Something only legends really mentioned for few had ever returned from the murky waters of the Yahg swamp delta.


Phineas would make the history books once again! Or would he…?




The current Nine Kingdoms challenge over on RogueBricks is asking for an orc settlement. This is my attempt at the theme, trying to stay clear of the Warcraft-like orcs and the likes one usually sees. Having seen stilt houses and wanting to create another more cinematic MOC this little scene came together quite naturally.


The more classic orc references can be found in the houses where I combined the texture of chain links, capes and orcish blades. You can find a picture here.


The swamp monsters are obviously heavily inspired by the way too many hours I spent in Fallout 4 and the way too many Mirelurks I ran into. Here's a close-up of those creatures in its own little vignette.

Hope you enjoyed the little expedition into unknown waters and I hope you like it :)

My thanks to Chris, César and Ben for their constant helpful feedback and encouragement! :)
