Deep in the French Forest...

Post by Comrade Faie on Mon Jun 15, 2009 10:26 pm

Deep in occupied France Captain Francis Faie bravely leads his men that are left from D-Day through the forest, but the Germans lay in wait for him!









Overview


Treetop


Without figs and trees.


No figs


I tried using a new greebling technique when I ran out of grass and plant pieces.

PaB here I come. Razz

Instead of just piling pieces together try to stick them together and make something. Razz

The figs need a lot of work, and the French soldier needs more cover... But that "Greeb" technique is sweeeeeet.

The greebling really adds to the jungle foliage! All together it's nice, but the tree using the brown arches looks weird with the circular peices at the bottom. Wink

Why do the figs need work?

My main purpose of that was to see how everyone liked the greebling, so you made my day!

The minifigs are a little fail, but the set is rather nice. The greebling technique, while lacking finesse (it's just a bunch'a bricks thrown together), is a rather nice way of creating bushes.

Aww c'mon, what do you learn at history class? Did the French occupied themselves and fought the Allies? They were a part of the Allies!

Though it was hard to see in the first few pictures, and it was a little thrown together and not technically attached, I really liked all the vines, plants, and rubble laying on the ground next to the path.

Greebs in this are awesome! Very well done Faie! That one tree fails, of course, but over-all, this is very nice!
