    Brichstopia: Tracked Down

    Post  bl*c on Sun Oct 10, 2010 10:01 pm

    For the Brichstopian Contest on flickr. I hope you enjoy it!
    _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    The Empire had forced us to work non-stop, for ten years -- Ten long, painful, and agonizing years in the Mine Fields. We had had enough, and fought back. We rebelled. After our escape and rebel, war had erupted between them and us – The Brichstopian Rebels.
    The desert is a harsh wasteland. There’s no water, no food, nor life what so ever. Only vultures and other scavengers watched and scurried around us. Survival was not an easy task to complete in this type of environment; especially with our twenty or some group of survivors. We had marched the deserts, looking for more survivors to increase our numbers. There were plenty who left on their own as refugees. Not everyone managed or wanted to stick together as we had done. But time is an uncontainable resource. Darkness shadowed our faces. The stars had begun to light in the endless skies of the Universe. Those who weren’t trained, which included most of the group except some of us and I, had begun to grow hunchback from walking. How long and how much we’ve walked is something I cannot answer, but I could tell it was time for a stop.
    We set up a small camp. Built five shelters out of dead lumber we could find out in the open. The children and woman had been moved in first. I stayed outside with two of my best friends over the night. The three us were the best of the trained, at least from our group of survivors. We always had each other’s backs, never broke apart, never left anyone’s side. A trio of fighters, you could say. Everyone had already fallen asleep. There was no need to stay up any further. We laid our weapons along a small boulder, hidden in sand, and shut our eyes as we lay within a small fence we had built. My eyes were shut, but I was not yet asleep. I had a bad feeling about the others, and how we would find more to finally kill off the Empire, to regain our once peaceful ways. I cleared my mine, and finally went to bed.
    The next morning, I woke up in shock. Gun shots and screaming were all I could here. No, not so soon. The Empire had tracked us down. I stood up as quickly as I could, and walked towards the noise. There, I saw my two colleagues firing at two Imperial Soldiers with heavy weapons. One threw a grenade, but it didn’t blow close enough to harm us. The second ran in close, but ‘Bloc’ had shot him with his rifle before any damage could be done by its heavy bazooka. I didn’t do anything; they were taken care of by my friends. What I wondered was, how? If the Empire is as strong as we think, they would have sent more after us. They would have been better trained than these two.
    There is still hope. There is still a chance to defeat these bastards. A new order is arising, and they’re called the Brichstopians.

    It's kinda a plain. Neutral Perhaps add more dead bodies and some grebbles.

    Greebles in a desert? Anyways, I don't plan on adding much. Most of the other entries were plane-er than mine. :Crazy:

    It needs anything else. It looks like you made it in 5 minutes, and it's got no snot, no greebles, no studless places, and no detail, what were you trying to make?

    Again, where do I add greebles in a desert? Maybe body parts next build.

    Snot and greebles aren't the only techniques out there. :roll:

    I'm talking about a desert MOC that looks like it's from MOCpages.

    And they are the only techniques that look good.

    *Vader voice* I find you’re lack of imagination disturbing.

    I think this is pretty cool, I like the landscaping. The gunfire is pretty neat too. Wink

    @Custom333:

    Now I'm not comparing these great MOCs with my MOC, but I don't see any SNOT or greebles:

    In my opinion Greeble is a very loose term, officially it is a synonym for the word Detail so technically most things you put on a moc are Greebles or details such as that tan rock you put in the corner. But from my experience (which I will admit it limited) people also consider greebles to be fancy orientations of usually dark grey pieces to form advanced detailing. It all depends on your point of view but I don't think the latter would fit well with this Mpc. In my opinion if you added something near the middle of the Moc were it is lacking in Details/Greebles you would greatly improve this.
