[JJJ20] The Skion at War

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

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.

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.
The most dangerous enemy you can fight is a man with nothing left to lose

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!
