Encounter at Farpoint by enc86 Encounter at Farpoint by enc86
They were just onside a town called farpoint, when his convoy was ambushed. The air filed with smoke and bullets, and it was clear that the solders protecting him would soon be of no use.
With hell raining down, Percy did the only thing he could, and ran. His lungs were on fire when he finally rested behind the bombed out building. normally the sight of the propaganda would of made him uneasy, but this time it didn't even register. Still clutching his briefcase, the generals words keep playing in his head "son that information will win the war, a lot of good men died getting that information, protect it with your life"
Percy didn't know for sure what was in the briefcase but rumor was it had the plans for P.U.G, a super weapon that would decimate the enemy forces.
Finally starting to catch his breath, he herd the hum of a mech and shouts of enemy forces. They were hunting for him, and all he could do was what he did he did best, hide......


So this a simple quick diorama for me. I pretty much build it because i really wanted a base for my mech (i built it awhile back and has been siting in a box). plus i just made the modern infantry and decide they might look good together.the base work only took me a day, and while not as detailed as some of my stuff, i feel like its a good display for my mech.

So here is what went into this project:
a kitbashed HG gundam mech
1/35 modern infantry, a gift from :iconshank117:
cheap wood base form a craft store
plaster cast building ruins
some Woodland Scenic gravel and real rocks
sci-fi propaganda: all rights and credit for them go to original artists [link]

As a miniatures painter I liked this piece. Nice touch with the posters on the wall. The only things I would rip on is the wires coming out of the mech I dont get but possibly I should have read more of the descriptions of the photos but I feel like I should get them without reading captions. And that last and this is a really minor bit of nit picking- the Title: Encounter at Farpoint was the pilot episode for STar Trek the next regurgitation, using the same title sort of creates a mental connection to Star Trek which was probably unintentional on your part but sort of unfortunate as that episode is one of the worst ever. Actually i shouldn't rip on TNG too much as the show got 500% better after Rodenberry wasn't around to screw with the writer's scripts.

All in all nice diorama, though.

Thanks, this was a pretty quick project. the whole base took less than a day.
1. yea the wires are weird, i was going for a tentacle arm thing(was playing MGS4)
2. lol yea i named it after star trek because i was lazy. and yea i agree that star trek really picks up after Roddenberry.

The whole diorama is just awesome, but i love that posters. I'd actually love to have these posters.

All in all it's a great scene. I wonder what background you had in mind.

That mech reminds me of the mechs in metal gear solid 4, especially the cable part, is that what inspired you when building?

yup, love the metal gear series and was playing 4 while building/painting it.
