Jabiim POW: Downed Pilots Rescue Vignette
This vignette was created for the 54th vs. 76th Corps Easter Vignette Challenge over at The CABG. Rules were to build atop an 8x8 baseplate (with unlimited overhang), to create a vignette showing the most sacrificial thing a Clone Trooper could do for his brothers. This is my take with downed pilots on Jabiim.
About this creation
My vignette depicts two 54th Eclipse Corps pilots who've been shot down and captured by Separatist forces after an attempted bombing of a Separatist holdout on Jabiim. They've been taken inside a deflector shield protecting the holdout, and bound to poles with energy bindings. After losing contact with the pilots, the Republic decided to begin their siege bombardment on the shield. However, a third downed pilot who was part of the same downed squad, watched the capture of his brethren and dug down deep in no man's land as he was caught in the cross-hairs of the Republic siege. Rather than retreat towards friendly forces, he daringly decided to dig under the deflector shield- and the protective energy-gate beams in front of it, in order to retrieve his captured brothers. Borderline suicidal, he releases a thermal detonator in the tunnel he had dug, blasting a hole on the surface next to his brothers, nearly killing himself. He then blasts a lone Security Droid who has been shocked with the explosion underneath his feet, and prepares and prepares to escort his brethren back from behind enemy lines.


Front shot of the vignette.


Side shot of the vignette. The three blue dishes up top are supposed to be hits on the deflector shield from the Republic siege.



Another view. Separatists lined the front of the shield with energy-gate beams which would prevent Republic troops from entering the shield.


Back shot. I had fun with the energy bindings on the pilots wrists. To give a better sense of realism in their bindings, I took the arms out of their sockets and switched sides before pulling them back into the 90 degree position.


The Security Droid falls with a cool steady blast from the crazy pilot.


The two POWs stare in confusion towards their savior emerging from the hole (or in retardation, depending on what you think the clone's faces look like). ;)



Top shot of the vig. I ended up coming out 3 studs on the left of the baseplate, and 1 stud on the right.


The deflector shield takes some direct hits as the energy-gate beams are projected in front. One of the Pilot's helmets has been put atop a blaster driven into the ground, as a warning to the Republic Forces.

The best part in my opinion is the reflector shield.
