Charge the Beach!

Post by Troopa Daisy on Sat May 08, 2010 4:40 pm

A quick MOC that I used to past time. I was practicing the technique of making a mountain with slope pieces for the first time which didn't exactly turn out to be the best. If someone who has built mountains would like to share their techniques/tips that would be great. Feel free to leave feedback and thanks for reading! Smile

Figs are 2 ODSTs, 2 Marines, 1 Sergeant, 1 Grunt, 1 War Chieftain.

Good job but Brute Chieftains have gravity hammers most of the time and the spartian laser (I am assuming that is what the marine is holding.) needs to be more box like. Give the Grunt the fuel rod gun. Take it from me I know Halo inside out. Wink Marine

Customhelmet, the marine is holding a M41 SSR MAV/AW Rocket Launcher. It says that in the Halo Encyclopedia (which I am a proud owner of).

It looks nice. I can't really tell what the 2 people on top look like though.

For advise you need to add more slopes or other pieces on the top of the mountain. You can do snot, which I did on flickr.

I must say, the lazer beams look really nice, good job on them. The sand looks good too.

Yeah, I was actually really inspired by your Omaha. Smile

@CHM- ATN was right the weapon the marine is holding is a rocket launcher you can see the two barrels in pic 4. Also Brute Chieftains (the red ones) wield hammers yes but this is a War Chieftain (the yellow ones) and they have fuel rods. Wink

Thanks for the comments so far everyone! Smile

No I am sure they hold each but grav hammers are more common. Grunts have fuel rod guns more often. And I said I assumed it was a laser. Marine

The key to mountains is stacking the slopes in unpredictable ways. I usually achieve this by tossing all my slopes into a box, mixing it around, and just building with whatever one I randomly pull out. Don't go for length, go for height, even if it means stacking a slope sideways, even in the middle...sometimes overhangs work quite well.

The area where the Grunt and Chieftain are is too plain, and I think the water is too "organized" don't align the colors equally. Wink

On the other hand, the beach and cliff are great! Smile

And this is the M41 rocket launcher.

Back on subject though, it looks realistic and the rocky slopes remind me of my local beach. Well done. A toast!
