It took me 3 months to build, but I do feel like it's something to be proud of, so I present to you.

Life was nice and peaceful a long time ago. But then came the flood, making everything different. Gangs broke loose and started to take over control. That's when the Militia came in, whoes job it was to protect humanity. Hah, yeah right. The Militia was even worse, killing everyone who stood between them and power they became the biggest threat in this city. Good people, my people, my friends, were killed or had to run away. Some people didn't feel like giving in, and they started the resistance, housed deep in the sewers and caves of the city. While life on the street got worse with the day.
We may not have it good, but we fight on, cause we know, some day this will all be over. We still have hope, and that's worth living for.

It is indeed something to be proud of! The angles of the roadway and half-collapsed buildings add a very un-lego irregularity to the layout. Most effective. The underground parts are a nice touch too.

If you dig post-apocalyptic SF type stuff in urban settings, I recommend the works of Paolo Bacigalupi. The background story to your MOC reminds me a bit of the books of his that I've read.

Awesome work on your diorama, Julandrius!  I love the wrecked cargo ship left stranded after the worst of the flooding receeded.

Very cool diorama Julandrius! Very realistic, it reminds me of a something out of Halo 3: ODST... Either way the carnage is very detailed. Well done!  :classic:

Excellent job! :wub:

I think you've nailed this. The entire layout is fantastic. Which is something you should be proud of! Not many people can build their own Layout, let alone build one this nice :grin:

The details are lovely, I impressed how you just didn't fill in the flood area, but you actually added a lot of details in there.

My only beef is the bottom right part in the basement - It's slightly distracting to have a white side, but then the cave starts off in darkbley... (minor nitpick, I assume you ran out of brick :wink:)

Great job :thumbup:
