Chapter 8: The First Boss Vignette
Featuring Joe Vig! A slice out of an underground USOW base while under attack by the Eagles in Chapter 8 of G4M3: Shattered Reality.
About this creation
A LEGO creation based on my upcoming novel, G4M3: Shattered Reality. I've been writing the book since... well, probably 2003, and now it's finally on its way to being printed. You can see the website here:
www.saber-scorpion.com/g4m3

This vignette is based on Chapter 8: "The First Boss."

   For a bit more info on the story behind G4M3 (pronounced "game") see the Chapter 2 vignette.

   My second vignette for G4M3: Shattered Reality. This one is from Chapter 8: The First Boss. What you see here is a slice right out of an underground USOW base.



Enlarge image
   The base is currently under attack by the Eagles, a group bent on fighting the USOW, who they blame for starting the war that destroyed the world of G4M3. Kyle has the opportunity to join either group, but he ends up siding with the Eagles.

   You're not supposed to see this side. Avert thine eyes.



Enlarge image
   Kyle Roswell eventually progresses far enough in G4M3 to meet the man that Frank Billings calls "The First Boss," Dr. Matthew Noble. This is Dr. Noble and his subordinate, Sergei Ivanovich.



Enlarge image
   This is Scott, a commander of the Eagles. Having just dispatched a USOW guard, he ducks behind cover to narrowly avoid a spray of bullets. The yellow cones are supposed to be the bullets hitting the wall behind him. I'm going for action-packed here...



Enlarge image
   Most of the Eagles permenantly mark their arms with the emblem of their group to show their dedication to the cause (they get an eagle tattoo). The USOW guard's shock stick was inspired by a weapon in a certain video game.
"Pick up the can."
"Now, put it in the trash can."



Enlarge image
   The Eagles aren't going to leave the base in one piece! Here an Eagles bomb expert sets up some heavy explosive charges in the room, prepared to blow the top off this underground bunker. I should have given him a decal that said: "I am a bomb technician. If you see me running, try to catch up."



Enlarge image
   And here's Joe Vig! He was digging for something in the deserts of G4M3 (probably water... heh), but for some reason he seems to have struck metal. He appears to be a bit confused..



Enlarge image
   For those of you unfamiliar with the LEGO vignette tradition, Joe Vig is a character often featured in LEGO vignettes. He is always found in a situation of mortal danger of which he is completely unaware. In this case, I think you can figure out what Joe Vig's predicament is.

   The random Eagle guy and Scott. Eh, don't ask about the Dobby torso. I had already put a yellow arm on it for some reason so I just went ahead and used it. Apparently the guy couldn't get his hands on any decent armor.



Enlarge image
   Dr. Noble and Sergei flanked by their USOW guards. The "patient" on the stretcher is actually a prisoner. I think you can figure out who.

   Here's a pic so you can see some of the interior details without the figs in the way. Though it's not a vig without the figs. Figs put the "ig" in vignette.

this seems a little bit like unreal tournament (GOOD GAME!) same story kinda... except unreal tournement isn't virtual reality. they both have tournaments to stop violence against civilions, they both have blood and gore and they both have some sort of government controlling it all. so there ya go :)

Intersesting, G4M3 looks promising, I think that your RPG style of having rudimentary armour, and clans, relates to an online game of some sort, maybe SOCOM? great job with the decals, and has given me a lot of ideas for future MOCs, thanks!- Zach, Persident CEO, General, and Commander in cheif of the ZILC

This vig has a lot of detail! I like the bullets hitting the wall, and the dude setting the bomb...WELL DONE!

By the way, I think it's called a Stun-Stick, and it's from Half Life 2, a great game. And also, G4M3 looks great! :p

A bit better than your last vig Scorp. I like the effects you used in this one, and I liked the new decals too. You got Kyle right with the more serious face by now, we can only wonder what'll happen to him at the end of the book and what happens to G4M3. (So go buy the book)

Very nice, I liked Joe Vig digging on the top. The rest of the vignette is good, like the way you used those slopes to make the angles, but I think you could have used more tiles, if just for the sake of the vignette tradition of having almost studless surfaces.
