[FF19] MadMario`s Last Minute Noob Contest Entries

Post by MadMario » Thu Feb 28, 2019 4:26 pm

Here we go, as a noob to the forums, why not try to win the first contest of the year? I`m actually carrying the ideas for these characters around for a few weeks, but nothing`s as motivating as a good ol`deadline.

StarCorps Executive Personnel (purist)
Image

In a remote Star System -far enough from the Nehellenium Galaxy to have never heard of it, but near enough to reach it with large Battlefleets at any time -the Space Transportation And Resources Corporation (S.T.A.R.-Corp. LLC)
follows the footsteps of the classic space program. Yet in the last few years more and more threats seem to appear on the system`s borders. In response to these threats, the CEO of S.T.A.R.-Corp. - Grayde Deele (left) founded the
STAR Corp. Security - or StarCorps. Led by the Brigadier Generals General Dogsbody (middle) - a complete goof and a puppet for Deele and his plans, and General Welfare (always right) - canny and considerate leader who knows how to handle these guys.

StarCorps is about to expand to the nearby systems, strengthen their borders and oppose the threats. For Prosperity!




Ghostvortex (purist)
Image
Image
Several months ago, StarCorps executives started several ships to the nearby systems to investigate some anomalies and rumours (like an event called "Raggnablöck" or something like that), which they thought were related to the increasing number of incidents at their territory borders. One of the ships, led by Commander Strokof Vait, was about to examine some kind of temporal disortion, when suddenly all systems failed and the ship was drawn inside a temporal rift. Nothing has been heard of the ship or its crew ever since. but there was / will be (time travel stuff, you know...) at least one survivor. Merchants and Mercenaries all around the system talk of a ghostly figure, nicknamed Ghostvortex ,wielding a giant glowing Spear-Axe, attacking and looting ships, yet rarely killing anyone. His aims stay a mystery, and only time will tell - or has told - what are the plans of this mysterious creature.

Thranax - The Last Of The Golden Golems (purist)
Image
Image
Actually, I`ve not come up with a good background story for Thranax yet, and he`s not a classic minifigure at all.
But I know he will be part of this Storyarc somehow, whether as a mercenary, searching the killers of his kin,
or as the steadfast guard of an old-fashioned, holy artifact containing type of temple or something. We will hear from this fellow.




Bonus Material - The lighting stage for Ghostvortex
Image
Not a parts breakdown image, but a view how the light effects on Ghostvortex` armor were created. Flexible IKEA-Lamps and transparent 4x4 dishes make great lighting equipment.

That`s all folks. Hope you like it.
