January 3rd 1944: Soviet-Polish Border

Post by PhiMa on Fri Dec 24, 2010 9:24 am

In the Early morning of January the 3rd, a Tiger of the Panzer Regiment Gro▀deutschland crosses the snowy border into the Soviet Union, to help aid the pointless defense by other german units. A waiting Wehrmacht guard warns the tank driver of tank traps set up in the street by the red army, putting the Tiger to a full stop. Whilst a second soldier travelling with the Tiger walks up to the soldier to see what the hold up is, a member of the Red Army pulls out a stolen Panzerfaust in the building next to the Tiger and prepares to fire, whilst his comrade climbs out the wreckage below with his trusted hound.

So yeahhh, made for the Eastern Front Contest at the Lego Contest Network and the Snow Challenge on the BAF. It's definitely not my best work, but not my worst either. Plus, I just HAD to make a vignette that includes my tiger Smile The 'wire' on the telephone poles is simply one long thread. Decals on the german figures by Milan and weapons by brickarms. Other vendors are MMCB and Brickforge. I think I achieved the 'Winter Wonderland' rather well Razz I obviously picked the Eastern Front of WWII for this vignette, seeing as they had alot of snow, and I'm a huge fanatic of WWII builds. Yet, I haven't built many Eastern Front MOCs, just Battle of the Buldge really. I decided it was time for a change and built an eastern front vignette including my newest Soviet figure and Tiger tank Smile

3/4th shot of the vignette:


Close-up of the Soviet in the building with the Stolen panzerfaust, and the halted Tiger behind tank traps.


Interior of the building. Spare MP40 and sawn-off, as well as much needed medical 'supplies' Razz :

All the figures:

Not a big fan of the roof, but other than that, I love it! Smile

This is pretty cool. I love the tank. But, I don't like the snow on the roof. You could maybe use those minifig stand from the Toy Story army Jeep but painted white or something like that.

I think you could have done better on the roof and the inside of the building. Wink

If you havent posted it yet to the BAF, then you should make a few changes;

1. The roof's snow is not very random. Add more, but in random blotches.
2. The building floors are not tall enough. As you can see, a person can just barely not touch the ceiling. You should definitely make it at least one brick taller.
3. Detail in the building. On the bottom floor, there are chairs, yes. But is there anything else? You could add a table, and maybe a cabinet (Since this is a civilian house that the red army just took, after all). Then, on the upper floor, have some debris on the floor (From the hole in the wall). Then just add small detail around the medical station thing.
4. Telephone poles= wood. Grey=metal. Brown= wood.

But nonetheless, I absolutely love this MOC. The fence is really cool, and the tiger is just a beauty! The there's the telephone poles that are there, and it's a good design.

With a few touch-ups, I'm sure this will win the contest! Wink

The roof needs work, and so does the interior of the building. I am liking the power lines overhead and the smoke coming out of the exhaust on the tank.

Are the power lines bricks or GIMP?

Try to not bump old topics unless you really have something new to add. And that just looks like string to me.

It's not even a week old?
