[BB20] Treefolk Bramblehulk

Post by Zahru II » Sat Mar 28, 2020 5:17 pm

While some outsiders are aware of the wise and scholarly elder treefolk of the Evergreen Woods, few have encountered their brutish cousins and lived to tell the tale. These primoridal behemoths are avatars of boundless vigor and unrestrained brutality, eager to crush, smash and trample all that theaten the wilds. Protective and territorial, they harbor a symbiotic relationship with the elves who use them as both muscle and distraction while their agile troops maneuvre through the battlefield.

Zahru is back and I’m loving it, do you have a breakdown of this? I’d love to build one for future Medivo cameos

Love me a Zahru build. I gotta ask how the "wrists" attach though? Are those the little bars with the "stud paddles" on one end, inserted into a hollow stud?

Yup, it's:

I can do a breakdown when I'm at my other place again - which, given mobility in general is not advised, can take a while.

Style [ 10 ]
Big freakin' tree hulk that looks like it crawled out of a swamp. They really should've done a proper fantasy theme for LEGO, this guy would've fit right in.

Substance [ 10 ]
Hoooly shit this guy has some amazing detail on him. Leaves, vines and branches hanging all over without looking out of place, excellent choice on the color schemes and bricks used as well. The goofy teeth, big brown nose and yellow diamonds used for eyes give him a fitting monstrous appearance. He's an appropriately big and chonky brute.

Photography [ 9 ]
Good, clear pictures including nice action shots and poses with minifigs, a parts breakdown for future building purposes would be fantastic.

Boast [ - ]
None? This guy kind of deserves something of a boast.

Style - 10

I haven't been around long enough to have seen many other Zahru builds, but from what people are saying, this fits your style, and Lego, come on, take this. You should post it on Lego ideas

Everything about this build is incredible. I love all the little vine and leaf pieces and such. For some reason, the thing that really caught my attention, was the little cheese slopes that you used for toes

An amazing build needs amazing pictures. I can't wait to see this guy in a battle somewhere ( :warhead: ) I love the shot with him picking up the knight, that reminds me of another certain green brute.

Yet again, there is no boast, it is okay for you to show off.
Yeah, you know who I am

Style: 9 - So many details on such a compact build.

Substance: 9 - All the mechanics and details are so well thought and implemented.

Photography:9 - Good angle and action views, clear shots and good lighting.

Boast: 9 - Though I´ve never been into Medivo, the background info enthralls me.

It's not the best, but I made a breakdown of each major section and buildup of all sections into the final model, accessible here: link

A few notes:

I didn't make specific left/right limb breakdowns, mirror where necessary.
I made a flub at the back section, assembling some pieces 1 stud lower than their intended position. This is amended in the final assembly pictures.

Feel free to ask if anything's unclear still. Anyone more adventurous/competent is welcome to remake the model in stud.io and use its instructions function.
