Contact Alpha One -- The Hellhounds protect the Hoosierland
Just one quick battle in an epic struggle between the Metal Legion and the Crimson Freakdom fighters.
About this creation


Metal Legion HQ advised the 1st Indiana ML Militia (The Hoosier Hellhounds) that the Crimson Freedom forces have an advance recon unit operating along the banks of Big Lick Creek. The Hellhounds, slipping stealthily down the creek in their River Cat, caught the recon team without its weapons . . . and without a chance.



The K-9 units, Spunky and Rodi, had one Crimsonite crying for mercy before they ripped his throat out.

Another Crimson Chicken caught a slug with the back of his head ...



and rather than taking a prisoner, team leader Deathdog calmly pumped a round into the face the final Crimsonite before he could launch the signal flare he had tucked in his belt.




All in all, a successful foray for the Hellhounds (in spite of the total "reverse face fail")


Builder's thoughts: I've been very busy since since the middle of May, then had Brickworld last weekend (still sorting from that), plus we are redecorating my daughter's room and that's occupied the last six days. However, I had an idea after seeing the post for Contact Alpha One, so I tossed this together while waiting on the first coat of paint to dry. Yeah, my favorite shot is of the dogs taking out the Crimson Creep. Salute!

I already changed my mind on this subject- there is propaganda in real wars too. I wasn't offended, and I didn't mean do offend you or your writing skills (I'm sorry if I did). When I said "terribly unrealistic" I referred to propaganda, not to your well-written backstory. Also, when I suggested you to use GIMP I meant that you can (or should) edit and crop your images to show only white background to enhance your presentation even further. But you said you "didn't have the time or desire to put any more into this than what I did", then I guess my suggestion is pointless. Again, I didn't mean to offend you, and I agree with you.

Hey there, Commander Price! I'm here to review your entry by Commander Rutherford's command. The trees are convincing and realistic, you managed to make the minifigs act properly- they really look, as the backstory suggest, contemptuous and superior, sailing slowly and nonchalantly because these CF soldiers are not a threat to them. What I don't like is the backstory itself. I don't like the downgrading of the CF. It's funny once or twice, but when it's so badly overused it makes look like propaganda. It's also terribly unrealistic. The photography and the presentation are great (use GIMP!), but I don't like the too-fast transition between the sand and the water. Some SNOT plates-on-plates would help you make it look more realistic. To sum up: Nice, funny entry, I don't like the downgrading.

Quoting AA (Noname) Hey there, Commander Price! I'm here to review your entry by Commander Rutherford's command.

Let me put it this way: I don't care if you like the tone of the writing or not; like all propaganda, it wasn't intended to portray the opposing force in a positive light. It's all in good fun though, so no offense intended. You see, as someone who has earned a living using the written word, I know exactly what I'm doing when I write (typos are the exception -- those are just errors and all of us make those from time to time). Also, I prefer to use Photoshop when I choose to do special effects. I agree with your assessment about the water/land transition, but I simply didn't have the time or desire to put any more into this than what I did. Thanks for your input, and good luck to you.

As usual Metal Legion wins. You used SNOT technic for the base just like me. Did you see my Contact Alpha One? It's called Victory in Hungary for the 2nd Hungarian garrison.

They were uninvited, and now they will have to "Pay the Price"! Well, catching them without their weapons is a bit of a boon. Wow! That one guy cries...and then dies. The squad leader calmly pumped a round into that guys face? That is some violence with a capital V! I guess the moral of the story is: Don't get your Crimson on in Hoosierland. As always, an exceptionally well presented MOC. The photos are crystal clear, and the lighting/color are perfect! These details really make it pleasant to look at. The simplicity is a delight. One can see at a glance what is happening (and smile). Harsh content, but they wanted WAR, not a chess game. Well done Commander Price! Another Metal Victory!

Great story telling and use of minifig expressions, two things you're well known for. It nice to get those 'need' builds out, isn't it?
