Hoth Tragedy II
Posted 14 January 2010 - 06:51 PM
Thanks to the newly released 8083 and 8084, plus a little help from 7749, I found the necessary elements to build a version 2 of my previous Hoth based MOC, one of the features I had in the old version is the blood stains (thanks to the kind words of those who left comments), in this version II, I tried some additional methods, I hope they are interesting to you.
Although the scene looks quite bloody, but it depicts the sacrifices of the Hoth Rebels in doing their jobs.

I could mention now, that there should actually be no blood, but - damn I just did it.
Keep up the good work!

There actuall would be a liitle blood in places, but from wounds caused by flying pieces of metal from exploding cannons and fighting machines.
The troops on both sides falling, etc, very very well done !
Keep up the cool work 'Parchioso' !

as we clearly can see: The Empire Striked Back.
I have to admit, that it's quite hard to spot the very few drops of blood (if any at all) in the original trilogy movies.
The background looks pretty empty. Maybe you could place an AT-AT or AT-ST in the far background which would appear as more blurry silhouette on the background to give a nice effect of distance.

I'd have to disagree. The prefect shot makes a seen of the speeder approaching from a distance. I think this is very well done, and the blood/ice effects are great! I'd say there's absolutely nothing to change with this MOC.
I might say that it would be good to have all of the Hoth Rebels wearing the same uniform, but that would be hypocritical as I have 4 2009 guys and 6 2010.

Actually I am not very happy with the snow effect, there are a few great examples from others, but for costing reason I have to use only parts I have on hand. The blood effect is what I am trying to play with, but I think the movie is intended for general audiences and too much blood may not be appropriate, I hope my work would not appear offensive to anyone.
What I actually tried to do with the speeder was to make it fly up like what a stuntman would do, but I think the angle is not right.....
And finally, I include a photo showing the overall work:

So many things to like:
The way you created the blood dribbling out onto the snow is great. Is that red pieces under trans pieces? Whatever it is, it gives an awesome and realistic bloody effect!
The Ron Weasley sleeping face works perfectly!
I love the "shot-in-the-head" snowtrooper. Yes, he's extremely blood, but it looks like his head exploded under that helmet, which is a great effect!
The speeder bike is positioned very well to my eye. It looks to be pointing towards the turret, like he just shot the gunner, but is at the right angle to me that it looks like he is turning to swoop away (and then maybe come back for more).
The whole thing looks so good, so action packed. It reminds me of BattleFront, if BattleFront was rated M and had the gore of Halo!
