[JJJ18] Unbearable Cold

The Siberian wastelands are a vast, merciless, yet crucial region of the USSSR, for they serve as an imortant location for secret testing and research facilities, as well as mining sites for valuable minerals. Although a lot of adversaries of the USSSR possess highly advanced technology, none of them could possibly take on the bitter cold of Siberia. However, not all Soviet soldiers are that well adapted to these extremely low temperatures either and often are insufficiently supplied. Thus, most guards are left to hunt their own food to stay alive.

Luckily, this bunch of soldiers managed to hunt down a bear, albeit a rather weird looking one due to its more humanoid stature. None of them seems to notice or care however, as being out in the icy wastelands with next to zero food supplies doesn't really allow you to be picky about your food.

Anton doesn't really care if he gets fired or executed by his superiors for drinking on duty. As the camp fire doesn't quite do the trick for him to get properly warmed up, some homebrew should help him out instead.

Poor Viktor had to head out to the woods for more lumber to keep the camp fire lit up, while his comrades are keeping themselves all warmed up.

However, none of them seem to notice the other impending danger to their survival. The ursine natives of this land are visibly mad at the soldiers for grilling one of their fellow tribesmen. It is not unusual for Soviet patrols in the cold to fall victim to a bear tribe attack, especially after capturing one of their members as additional food supply beforehand.

I really like the snowy roof and campfire.

That's really nice, you could do a forum battle opposing bear tribe squads and USSSR squads sent to hunt them to extinction.

Style – 9/10
So much character in this build.     I like the use of the brown bear mask to act as the charred meat.

Substance – 9/10
Let me just reiterate here by saying that I loved the character in this build. You can tell by the looks of the hut that the USSSR is in a harsher environment, yet there the soldiers are trying to make the best of it. Probably in vain though.

Photography – 10/10
Pretty much a perfect entry. Your use of a backdrop makes it all the better.

Theme – 1/10

The scene feels as quaint as you would think, and the lighting makes it feel like late evening with a low sun. The bits of snow on the roof really enhance the mood.

Substance: 5/10
While the build comes together well as a whole, a lot of it could be built better. The cabin is main thing, as those log pieces would look a hundred times better mounted sideways rather than vertically. A couple things in there are nice, but since they're just slightly modified from official sets it's hard to give many points for them. Lastly, I feel like the white base should have either been extended to accommodate the car and bears, or left out. I do like the angled posts of the cooking spit, though.

Photography: 7/10
I already mentioned how the lighting helps the mood, and the shots are chosen well. There are a couple things that are slightly out of focus, and it might have been cool to get a photo from the bears' perspective, but other than that everything's solid.

Theme: 2/10

Total: 21 (2)
