This medieval scene by Graham Gidman is everything you could want in a vignette. The Summer Joust 2017 medieval building contest is challenging its participants to create a captivating scene on an 8x8 stud base, with minimal overhang. There has been a steady flow of submissions for the category, but this one made me stop and look more than any other. Not only is it just a plain good scene, but its design is executed very well by Graham. There's emotion captured by the minifigures, the action is clear and amusing, and there's just the right amount of detailing here to really make you feel that it's part of something bigger. I also appreciate how the rock formations aren't built in a simple way, rather they have just the right amount of angling to look organic and disturbed. A small build that speaks volumes, for sure!
