Assault on the Red Compound

Post by wrecks on Sun Jan 17, 2010 7:31 am

"Assault on the Red Compound" is my second largest creation to date, measuring 32 studs wide, 56 studs long, and 46 bricks high (inclueding antenna tower). I've been working on it for a good bit of the last two weeks, and am happy with the result.

The AFoC has uncovered the location of the Red Compound, the largest distributor of illegal substances in the continent. A small squad of AP-MVs were sent in to infiltrate the outer walls, making way for the infantry.



After a breif trek through the jungle, the AP-MV breaches the outer wall of the Red compound.


I spy with my little eye...


The jungle could probably benifit from a bit more plants, but I don't have as much as I'd like.


A view of the main building.


The right side of the courtyard.


Left side.


O Hia there Walter!


Smashy smashy!


Wasn't sure what to add up here, so built a sensor array, some sort of laser cannon and a few random bits of other st00f.


A local news cam captures the unfolding action.


Another overview, shows the change in environment.


Not too happy with the interior, it was the last part I built and I was running out of pieces. Well that's my excuse, anyway.


Here's a picture of the courtyard with the AP-MV and wall segmants removed. Fig for scale.


This guy sits on top of the Red Compound. I had to take a seprate picture for this, as it would have stuck up over the top of my backdrop if it were still atached.




All the figures in the Bignette.

Left to right: four Red Compound workers, AP-MV gunner, Red Compound commander, AP-MV driver, four Red Compound soldiers.

Very nice! I think it's one of your best creations! Hola Wow! The compound was hard to find because of it's color I presume? Wink
BTW, do you have BA? If you don't you need to get some for creations like this.

Word can't be said, other than these ones. Wink
The jungle part is great, and I love that you put in the tire imprints! But the best part is the area were the tank crashed through the wall. Smile

This has some really nice details, and the ground looks like it's all filled up! I just think that there could be more in the inside of the building and the roof. The fig combos are good too though! Smile

I love the inner wall of teh compoung, and the break through the outer wall is nice too. The sentry or whatever you want to call the floating critter next to the wall is well done, and the tank is very nice, though the back is a little boring. My pieces of advice would be only that the inside needs to be more greebed, and that the jundle looks too boring but has no common plants. They all look kinda thrown together, and the copius usage of the leaves leads me to believe that you don't have too many ferns or grasss, which would have both been good space taker uppers. As it is the jungle doesn't really scream jungle, it more screams randomized plants.

That camerabot reminds me of a Tau Gun Drone.
This thing is epic win, and I'm pretty sure all the flaws have been pointed out by the previous comments.

I think you got the important parts right. The action is great the as is the outer scenery, with the tire tracks and broken walls. I echo the comments on the camera pod, very creative idea.

Nice! I really loved how you built the Broken wall pieces. Also, the tank is very perfect.

I love the wall segments in the courtyard, really give it the breached feeling. Also the tread marks of the tank are great! Even different elevations for the curve of the wheels! Great detailing.
