For The Insurgency
About this creation
Built for the World Challenge: The Emerging War over in The Insurgency

Nation: Marauders

Calagrade and Brad had managed to sneak aboard an Aurelian ship. It was headed for earth, and both of them where headed that way. They had been exploring the ship for a while when they found a large crate.

NOTE: Calagrade is wearing his uniform that signifies him as apart of the official Marauders organization. He is a Marauder (as in apart of the nation) by default, and would normally be wearing regular clothes, except that he is on a mission for the ORGANIZATION of Marauders (the one started on Earth). I hope this made sense :P

some_text

"What the heck could be in this thing?" asked Calagrade.

"I can only presume that it is something of great value, due to the sec-"

some_text

Brad quickly shut his mouth. Somewhere down the corridor, they heard footsteps.

some_text

The two of them, with no where else to go, ducked behind the crate.

some_text

Three Aurelian soldiers approached the metal crate.

some_text

Calagrade's mind took ran on instinct. Three sets of footsteps. Not in unison, so either citizens or off duty guards.

some_text

"Let's open her up, and retrieve the information," one of the men said.

some_text

Brad looked sternly at Calagrade, knowing what he was thinking, but the he was to busy to pay attention.

some_text

One of the soldiers suddenly flew back from the crate, shot.

some_text

The second one was yanked off of his feet before the first even hit the ground.

The final soldier had his gun drawn, but he knew better than to try and take the shot.

some_text

"Gun down, and open the crate," Calagrade said, not bothering to explain the consequences. The soldier knew.

some_text

The Aurelian kept his eye on Calagrade as he opened the crate.

some_text


"It's open," he said after a few seconds.

"Sure doesn't look open," Brad replied.

"It opens from the back."

some_text

Just then, Calagrade heard a noise. One he hadn't heard in a while.

some_text

Then a dog emerged from around the corner.

some_text

Calagrade shoved his captive against the crate.

"A dog, eh?" he said, "It must have some information on it, or something."

some_text

"We should get it back to Etrion," Brad said, "it could be important. I'll take it back in a pod, you keep going."

"Good idea. Thanks."

some_text

Brad took the dog and left the three men.

some_text

"Well, I can't let you go, and I'd rather not kill you like a coward would, as I'm much too good for that, so into the crate you go."

some_text

Calagrade locked the crate and picked up his gun, which had been dropped when he yanked the soldier's gun from him.

some_text

A dog on a spaceship. That doesn't happen every day.

Now, some pictures of the build :)

Quoting Mr. Cab OK, so I looked at this again... I think that a dog on a spaceship is kind of a strange concept... but the lighting really makes up for it.
Hahah, it comes in to the plot later on, and besides, it's supposed to be unique :P

Thanks! Do you mean the one with the grill plate thingy? (What IS that called) That was also a last minute addition!

Quoting Stormjay Rider Looks pretty nice all over. If there were one thing I would change here, it would be the greebling on the side wall: it looks too chaotic, even for greebling. I think a single color works best. Then again, you could probably build the whole thing without greebles and it would still look nice.
Hmmm, I think you're probably right. I don't greeble much, but if I do it again, I'll try it one color.

Quoting Armon Russ Very nice. Love the smoothness of it. And the ceiling light technique is something I've wanted to try for a while. It gives everything a purposeful artificial lighting look. Great work.
Thanks! I wanted to make "lights" on the ceiling, and this seemed liked the best way to make it happen!
