Some miniature forces (Updated Aug. 4)

Postby aoffan23 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 12:18 am

In preparation for the upcoming Toronto Brikwar, I decided to round up some minifigs. I don't have nearly enough matching minifigs to create a decent-sized force, so instead I gathered some small forces I had lying around. I've been developing the first two for some time, and the second two are the results of me just doodling with my Lego.

Also, please forgive the blurry pictures. I've lost the charger for my camera, so I had to resort to my phone. At least it has a macro function on it.

Number 1:
Image
Contains: 3 infantry with hero (aggressive sergeant cliché) and armoured soldier, 3 vehicle crew (pilots), buggy, motorcycle, armoured car.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Number 2:
Image
Contains: 2 winged guys, 3 soldiers with hero (Death-worshipping scary-looking guy cliché), frenzied captive, haunter, siren, juggerknight, Bloodwing.
The story behind these guys is that they're religious militants who dress themselves in the image of death. They use machines to simulate supernatural effects, such as the giant suits of armour and the ability to fly. The deity they worship is named Bloodwing, and he's the equivalent of Death. their belief is that those unworthy of living must be killed to make way for new lives, and that a balance must be maintain in order to prevent an overflow of life energy.

Image
They originally had guns and modern helmets, but I has to use them for the other force, so I just made them look ancient instead.
Image
Wow, that is one godawful picture. Anyway, the captive is drugged with hallucinogens, armed, cuffed, and sent out to the enemy before everything else. The drugs amplify and distort the nightmarish look of the soldiers, and force him to run away from them. Once in enemy lines, his visions become to terrifying that he breaks and starts slashing away at everyone in a desperate attempt to be rid of the horrors surrounding him.
The haunter is a guy draped in white cloth, with a smoke machine hidden underneath to both hinder the enemy's view, and up the intimidation factor even further. They're often sent running after the captive to herd him in the right direction, and fuel his fear.
The siren is a woman wearing the mask of a dead, but beautiful woman. She uses her charms to seduce individual soldiers away from the force, only to brutally kill them with her cleaver once out of sight.

Image
Image
Image
The dreadknight is armed with a repeating bow and a claw. It originally had a minigun instead, but I replaced it with the bow to go along with the ancient look.

Image
Image

Number 3:
Image
Just some farmers. Lead by farmer Abraham Church and his daughter, Prudence. They're joined by three other farmers, their trusty John Deere tractor, and Dale. Dale's just a goddamn idiot.

Image
Image

Number 4:
Image
Another terrible photo. These two are just some messed up leather-and-chain wearing S&M siblings, who have made a habit of making people their slaves and sending them to kill. The brother infects people with his injector gun, and the sister stands over them, cracking her whip. They're known to have some really nasty, kinky victory celebrations. Yeah, I went there.

Image
This is what happens when they get a hold of soldiers.

Hope you like them. I'll be putting some stats up soon. I know I've said that alot, I actually need them this time, so I'll put them up once I make them.

Very creative. I'm digging the cult of death mostly.

Also, when Dale dies you should replace him with Rusty Shackleford.

Those vehicles you made out of the archeology sets are really nice, they have a very Half Life 2 feel to them.

I fucking love those vehicle builds and undead constructs. Awesome stuff all around.

Also:

only to brutally kill them with her cleavage once out of sight.

Oh, that dreadknight. Could we have a build guide of the frame?

So much win here. I love the creations you've built -- they manage to be both compact and awesome-looking, especially that armored car. I can't wait to see pictures from Toronto.

This is all great stuff. All very Brikwars. Also, am I the only one who thinks that the Sergeant looks like some kind of stripper?

Oh, balls. I just realized while reading the posts that I didn't decide between Dreadknight and Juggerknight. Dreadknight is more fitting, but it's already taken by a Games Workshop unit. Any suggestions?

Anyway, thanks for all the kind words!

@DeltaV: Here's the breakdown. Pics are a little better sine I was able to get them done while it was still light out, although a completely black-and-dark-grey creation is still hard to photograph.

Image
The head is inverted, but this can easily be remedied by flipping it right-side up, and using the half-pin to connect it at the neck instead.
Image
You'll have to play with the claw pieces a bit to get the helmet to stay down.
Image
The claw at the top is stuck into the robot arms at the bottom of the torso.
Image
Image
The 1x2 tile isn't legitimately attached, it kind of leans on the neck bracket. The other leg is obviously just a mirrored version of this one.
Image
Image
Just a shot showing how the headlight brick and tooth plate are angled.

Also, I added side pictures of the vehicles.
