This was an insanely fun scene to create and I'm glad this contest caused me to build a little out of my comfort zone.
The "parasites" lunge at the survivors.
I tried my hand at a bit of greebling here just to make the base a little more interesting.
Here you can see a close up of Space Marine rn#091 as he attempts to torch the hostiles and save the crew.
The infected crew members wave their weapons around wildly.
Sneaking up from behind...
Looks like nobody noticed the shotgun.
Paul the crewman attempts to shoot a parasite as it develops out of his comrade's corpse.
George attempted to escape on this alien bike he found but unfortunately a random volley of bullets from the infected crew hit his unstable ride and caused him to tumble through the ceiling and land here. His body needs to be burned soon or he will become food for the parasite as well!
Here's a closeup of the vents in the roof, no doubt where the parasite came from.
And here's more shots of the tiles in the ceiling. Originally there was going to be a second floor to the vig. but I decided it would be too distracting.
Here you can see one of the emergency lights, I put one on each corner.
These just show that none of the details on the bottom exceed the one stud limit and show the size of the entire vig, including the ugly back.
---Behind the Scenes---
Here's a few shots of the "Alien Bike". It'll get its own page soon.
The crewmen posing for the camera.
And here are the "parasites". Their design is probably my favorite part of this build, they look almost exactly like their cousins from a certain xbox game... I'm pretty sure that they are my own design, and feel free to use it, but I know that as soon as I post this some newb will comment something along the lines of "Z0MG!!! u StOle mah Id3a!!!" So we'll see...
Here's the Space Marine. I'm not sure why this picture made his armor so dark, oh well.
And here's just some pictures of the vig. without any minifigs.
In case anybody wanted to know the names of the Brickforge elements I used:
Dark Green Space Marine Helmet and Armor
Gold Space Marine Visor.
Dark Green Vambraces
Trans Dark Blue Power Blades
Blue Grey Crowbars
Well there you go, I hope you enjoyed and please rate/comment!
