Av4l4nChE's Creations

Postby Av4l4nChE » Thu Aug 03, 2017 8:28 am

Hey guys!

I thought I'd make this thread to give honor to the creations I've made over the years. I'm not fully sure if there is a dedicated thread for this kind of thing, but I didn't want to get in trouble for spamming a bunch of pics on someone else's thread, so I just made one of my own!

Here goes...


Image

A robot I made recently. I guess I was inspired by Titanfall. It kind of look like a Titan. At least that's what my dad said. I was just building, and this happened.

Image

Pic of the bot with his gun. It makes him way less articulate, I can tell you.

Ok, this creation was inspired by Total Annihilation, a RTS game I played as a small child. ( also, you'll find A LOT of my creations are video-game inspired. I guess you are what you do, or something. If I had enough specialized pieces, I guess I'd be building all the famous metal bands in concert, but I don't, so...)

Image

An Overwatch of the map. Red is on the left, Blue on the right, and the killing field in the middle. Early warning, the pic of no man's land is straight awful, which sucks because it's the best part.

Image

A half-decent shot of Red base. From left to right: the vehicle and K-bot labs are in motion, building new engines of war. An Engineer is assisting the K-bot lab with its repair beam. A pair of newly formed units, one of which is a mobile missile launcher, roll to the front, as a radar installation does its radar-y thing, and an artillery piece lets it loose. In the back, a generator keeps the whole base powered with Energy, while a line of metal extractors churn to keep the base's Metal production going. Another Engineer is finishing up a metal extractor.
There's also a sweet SAM turret I made, but, of course, my past self was a moron and didn't picture it.

Image

Oh, never mind. I did! Hey, one less retard-point in your favor, past self!

Image

This pic hurts my very soul. If anyone has the balls to look at the blurry horror for more than 2.64 seconds, It's a pic of the different war machines trading fire across no-man's land. You know, the machines I spent hours making. That my past self had to go and crap on because he couldn't take a decent picture. :fist: Anyway...

Image

Last pic. The is the Blue base, obviously. From front(ish) to back: two construction K-bots work on some new structure (barely pictured). An Experimental Gantry build a huge new death machine. One to rule them all, and in the Darkness bind them. Blue's own artillery responds to Red's in kind, while Blue's vehicle lab makes another unit. In the back a pair of metal extractors is protected by an AA turret, next to a long line of Energy generators.

BAD PICTURE ALERT: If you or anyone watching has a sensitive stomach, please turn away now. Av4l4nChE, Inc is not responsible for any diarrhea or vomit-related accidents that may occur upon viewing this post.

Anyway, this is a Dark Souls II-inspired creation. I made it from one of the first spots I had real trouble, No-Man's Warf.

Image

An Overwatch of the creation. From left to right, the player has just stepped from a bonfire. Underneath a Dark Stalker lurks, waiting to be a royal butthole to the player as he steps down from the ruined building. Past the ruin, the docks sprawl out over the water.

Image

A close-up of the bonfire area. Note the player has not used a Human Effigy in some time, due to his zombie-like appearance.

Image

The docks, where a Varangian Sailor, and a Hollow Infantry wait.

Image

The end of the docks, where Carhillion of the Fold meditates, waiting to teach the player the intricacies of magic.

Just a thing I made. I was inspired by fighting games.

Image

Note the player health bars, and super energy levels, etc.

One of my more intricate and well-built creations, I think.

I wanted to make a pirate island type of thing, and did pretty ok.

Image

An Overwatch.

Image

This handful of mateys caught something a bit bigger than they were expecting!

Image

On the beach, various piratey-thing occur.

Image

A bad picture of the inside of the fort.

Image

On the side of the island, a lone pirate relaxes with his hard-earned rum. However, sharks are drawn to the smell of booze, and love it waay more than blood. Scientific fact!

A pic of a dope crawler tank I made.

Image

I called it the Mastodon. Good old past self took no more pics than that, despite it being the only tank I've made.

And last, and probably least, I made this weird steampunk-y hot air balloon jet thing. Because reasons.

Image


That's all for now, folks!

Many thanks! I try to make my scenes as detailed and busy as my collection will allow.

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

Lots of cool stuff here, that island would be perfect for a Brikwar.

Where did you get a white lego pirate captain's hat though?

OK...embarassing story time...

My parents got me a lot of "real LEGO minifigs" off of Amazon, bless 'em. They are all Chinese-made crap piles, with legs and arms that can barely move, and faces and torsos with the decals either way too large or too small.

I normally have a very simple policy for non-Lego pieces: "GET OUT OF MY HOUSE YOU PATHETIC IMPOSTER TRASH!" , however, I have very few pirate-themed minifig pieces that weren't in the abominable peach color, so I needed to improvise. The knockoff hat was a last resort.

As you might be able to tell, I was substituting a lot of pieces in there. You may have noticed a guy with a prisoner's outfit, a guy in Dr. Inferno garb, and a couple ninjas hidden amongst the pictures, but I don't think they look too bad, just add to the general pirate-y chaos of the place.

Found this in the tomes of ancient lore. It's quite old, so don't judge too hard. For young me, this was pretty good. I even sent a pic of this to the "Cool Creations!" section of the Lego Magazine. It predictably didn't make the cut, but I still like it.
