Where Spartans Failed

About this creation
Basically, I built the vignette to show off my biggest, baddest, complicated-est Forestman pose yet. Everything else was just tacked on. The name comes from the skeleton in Spartan helmet that you can just see lying in the tree, continuing my theme of Forestmen vs. Spartans. Whether this scene has anything to do with warfare is up to you.


Here he is, the star of the vignette! I spent the good part of the day trying to pose him. He uses the pneumatic tube from my other vigs to hold the bow. The tube then also holds into place the ends of a red rubber band that goes down one side of the torso, through both legs, through itself, and then up the other side of the torso. A light bley antenna is tucked against the left leg to keep the body upright. In-story, this guy is about to shoot up another rope so he can begin his climb. I debated making it a violent scene, but in my mind the only reason for an enemy to stick his head out over a cliff exposing himself is if there was a wall there, and I'm terrible at castle walls.


Just because the lone Forestman didn't look so good, so I added a companion about halfway up the visible portion of the cliff. I debated whether to reuse the whip technique from Forestman+Elf=, but it didn't look right in this scene. I spent around 10 minutes trying to tie his hands up with the rope and get him to hang right.

So far I've loved being able to use all my different yellow heads in these vigs. The expression on this one was just perfect for a confident climber.

Quoting Galaxy of Unitronus That archer pose is just brilliant, and very unstable it seems.
Nope. Once attached to the base, it's quite sturdy.
Quoting StickNik ^^ Never mind 10 minutes to tie climber up with rope, it was probably more like 10 HOURS to get the bowman's legs in place, and make it stand...
Also nope. Around 1 hour brainstorming and 30 minutes assembling and constructing the separate base to hold it properly, on and off.

Wow! The minute detail really completes this! The way the rope is wrapped around the minifig's hands like it would be in real life, the bent hose arms, totally stunning. The tiniest details like those add life to this.

Quoting Deus The Risen Uhm... Is the shooter pissing blood?
Other than red, which happens to match the Forestmen, it could be blue or yellow. White and black are too short.
Quoting police patrol were did you get the spartan helmet

That posing is really nice, for the climber as well as the shooter. I could never have come up with a way to do that. stellar job.
