Prince of Persia MOC Scorpion Fort

by

Dita_svelte has created this impressive and imposing MOC (My Own Creation) using mainly the new medium nougat color.

This design is based on the entrance to the ancient city of Aleppo, Syria, with its distinctive double gate and bridge.

I wanted to do a much larger MOC using a colour scheme of dark bley, pearl gold and medium nougat.
With a very limited palette of bricks in nougat – no plates or tiles! – it was quite difficult to do areas like flat steps and the roof of the towers – so I am very happy with the result. Whilst I was initially unsure of using it for detail, the 1×4 brick adds great textural detail and is in keeping with the Arabic theme.

The fort hides a secret — “the Nizam’s private bathroom hidden beneath the solid rock.”

Be sure to check out some of Svelte’s other Prince of Persia creations. 😉
