Product Idea

Elf Lion Chariot


"I have seen the future and the future is green!" A wise elf augurs as she gazes into the faces of her allies and wonders. "Do we have anything that can answer this nefarious threat?"

Silence. No one wants to catch her eye. Those that do, cannot hold her gaze.

"But what of the Sky Reamer, my lady?"

A voice from behind the group eventually calls out. A murmur of voices, a turning of heads, and a young Elf with hard eyes steps forward.

"Let us attack them from the clouds. Let my Sky Hunters rain death from above... Please?"

She pauses a moment, before turning towards the stone again. "Let me see, Kinsman. And let me think."

For what seemed an age she stared into nothingness before pointing back across the group, uttering a single word in reply.

"Go."

That was less than an hour ago. Now the young Elf finds it is he who is lost in thought. It is a good job his dutiful beast knows the way to the Sky Hunters home better than he does. For years the Sky Reamer project was nothing but a dream. He lost count of the times he was told that it would never work. That the Giant Eagles wouldn't want any part of it. But now, they needed him. They needed his team. They needed him to be ready, But was he?

A low growl brings him back to the present; The majestically beautiful white lion, telling him of their journey's end.

"Nearly home, Princess," he calls out in return, "Nearly home."

DESIGN NOTES

Still suffering (perhaps) from an abundance of white in the chariot frame, this noble variant has a giant white lion to pull it along, as opposed to a pair of horses in the other version, the Elf Battle Chariot. I wanted something more powerful and distinctive to pull the chariots into battle and having a good deal of experiences with these pieces having built both a Griffin and a Manticore previously, what better than a white lion pulling a noble chariot into battle.

What this chariot misses out on, in terms of sword reach compared to the battle chariot, it more than makes up with in tooth and claw. I know what I'd prefer coming straight at me!

PIECE COUNT : 200 (not including minifigures or their accessories/weapons)
