[JJJ20] The Skion at War

Post by Dienekes22 » Sun Jun 28, 2020 10:45 pm

Dear judges:
There are better photos at the bottom of page 1 :warhead: :warhead:

The Skion are unfortunate when they must battle The Swarm.
They are even more so when, in a twist unforseen by any imperial strategos, the Swarm ally themselves with the vicious space faring orks.
It is even more dire when a third faction is added to this uneasy, hostile alliance: the droid armies not yet encountered by the Skion war machine.
Here we see the desperate defense of a colony world from this alliance.

Anti-air guns can attack ground targets, too.

All hands to battle.

Use all the guns.

Image
Phoenix troopers bring fire from the oblique, ignoring the danger from closer sources.

A laser-guided rocket is sent toward the swarming host for the operator does not see the droid armor nearby.

The cover of night helps the sneaky orks get close before the unleash their fury.

Some of you may remember my brikfic specifies that The Swarm attack at night and launch biological lights above the site of battle so they can see.
I have attempted to replicate the effect:

I apologize for the photo quality. Our camera was working horribly so I had to use my phone and the lighting in the new basement is capital B Bad.

Up close that insane trench build is just even more obscene. :tiger: A mindboggling amount of detail, seriously.

Holy shit!!! This moc is just awesome. I feel bad for the other people in the June July Jamboree because they have to compete against you and Kaplan.

I feel like there are a lot of great details getting lost here in the chaotic composition and staging. Any chance you could hook up some shop lights and set up some clearer shots?

Yeah, probably in the next week. The contest said “diorama” so I thought I’d go all out.
Also unfortunate but the camera I was using sort of zonked out and it’s hard to stage good photos with my phone. I’ll do what I can!

I have some better photos.

Some notes:
all the concrete buildings have full interiors
all three doors into the wall open
both bunkers are outfitted the same so I only took one picture.
I ran out of money for this project before I could do the interior of the wall :lol:

This is an absolutely amazing build, with so much action throughout, and definitely is the most Brikwarsy build in this contest

A really amazingly detailed battlefield. There´s so much going on and yet everything´s recognizable. Perfect from colour scheme to amount of details on terrain. And the most brikwarsy battle going on.

Style -- 8
Substance-- 9
Photography-- 9.
Theme, Tie-Breaker Category-- 10

Very cool space that would be worth perusing over to see all the details. I think the environment is too big for the minifig collection. More minifigs for a real hold-the-line last battle, or even fewer minifigs in like a scene where they're making a run for it, I think would have put this over the top.
