Omaha Beach Invasion

Post by Darth Yoda on Sat Jan 30, 2010 4:54 pm

Without further ado, Let me Present to all of you.....

Omaha Beach Invasion!



June 6, 1944 : D-day

The untested 29th Infantry Division, joined by nine companies of U.S. Army Rangers redirected from Pointe du Hoc, were to assault the western half of the beach. The battle-hardened 1st Infantry Division was given the eastern half. The initial assault waves, consisting of tanks, infantry, and combat engineer forces, were carefully planned to reduce the coastal defences and allow the larger ships of the follow-up waves to land.

German machine gun fire devastated the allied forces and the term “War is hell” was certainly applied here.

ATTENTION, THESE PHOTOS WERE EDITED BY THUNDER-BLADE.

(I I myself stink at editing Razz)

So yea, I hope you guys enjoy it! 😁 High Five! 😁

Yay! Pics!

That, looks really awesome DY! The water has been made nicely, the sand is layered, and the mountain looks pretty realistic. The boat and the bunker are also nice, and you followed what the real thing was like by putting some of those spiky things in the ground and some blood. I think you did a great job on this! Smile

Very nearly a perfect moc, the only thing missing is the ropes that the US soldiers should be climbing up the cliff with. Otherwise, seriously gobsmacking stuff. Shocked

15? Oh, I couldn't see some of them. There should be a little more scaling the cliff though. Whatever though, I like the fence on the cliff.

Do you have a brain? Nobody with the ability to actually put it on the portal has been on in a couple hours since it was posted here.

MOC of the Month has to be Star Wars. Anyways, this is beautiful. The waves are brilliant, and all the special barely seen parts are what make this great. Could you tell an estimate of how many pieces there are, and how much you spent on this? Smile

I really like how the water turned out in this moc. The blood in it was a nice touch. I feel however if you threw in another boat on the side you'd get a better sense of the invasion. The rocks weren't perfect, but they'll do Wink I also really liked the bunker and barbed wire near it. Smile

Amazing work. I loved the barb wire on the hill, and the water effect. Next time I go to lego store I will take a mess of the small pieces instead. It seems they come in handy when making detailed MOCs.

Great job!

This is amazing! It's got everything it needs - the boat, the bunker and what-not - you actually used trans-bricks for the water, and the scene itself is well set. Love it!
