Somewhere out there in the vast nothingness of space... Part I
Somewhere out there in the vast nothingness of space, a frightening discovery is made aboard the NSR Battle Cruiser Andromeda.
About this creation
"The NSR (or New Space Reich) lost contact with the battle cruiser Andromeda a little over 2 light years ago. Since the vessel was exploring an uncharted sector of space, whatever they had mapped or come across was vital to our database and to the progression of our space colonies. As a trained veteran in both military, technological, and scientific affairs, I was naturaly chosen to find the ship and bring her and her crew home. However no training could have prepared me for the frightening discovery I have just made. The ship is in utter ruins- the crew are all dead and seemingly infected with some sort of unknown agent that turns their skin tone a dull green. Scouting out the lower hull of the ship so far has produced various wall murals written in blood. The most disturbing of which I have just found in one of the hangars spelling out 'RUN'. Why RUN? The quietness is so eerie; all I can hear is my breath within my hardsuit. My god, what has happened here..."









RUN


The crashed starfighter through the hangar door used the neat lego net technique. Sebeus I is the first person to use this technique I believe. Basically you take tiles and put them on one side of the net, then attach 1x1 round studs on the other-side, and finally attach some 1x2 or bigger bricks behind the round stud. By giving it the staggering effect you reinforce the tile plates, yet at the same time allow mobility to position them as you wish.


An infected pilot can also be seen inside the fighter.


The H-5 marking on the hangar door was created to represent 'Hangar 5', but it was also created as an allusion to the 'deadly' H5-N1 virus.


A dead/infected/cargo crushed crew member.


Side view 1.


Side view 2.


An infected crew member who was seemingly chained and thrown-over the catwalk railing.


Another infected crew member atop the catwalk.


Catwalk door with wall greebling. I tiled the doors like this to give it a more metallic texture.


Another view of the catwalk. Note the trail of blood.


Some sort of reactor with electricity running up and down the side. Build by jamming in clone war helmet antennas within the round 4x4 bricks.


This specific spot uses a wide variety of techniques such as snot, the archway/cylindar effect, etc. Check other side-view pics to see how bricks are off-set and slanted.


Top shot of the whole bignette. You can see the trail of blood more clearly here.


It's a bad blurry picture, but here's another shot of some wall greebles on the lower level.


The dead/infected crew along with the nameless scout in his hardsuit. I really liked this hardsuit as well as the gun running up his right arm.


Cargo crates! They can be colorful and interestingly shaped too! I used a lot of studded 1x1 and grill plates to create these.


The crashed and incomplete starfighter. I may finish it, I may not. First time I've tried this type of Peter Morris fighter technique. Complete with zombie pilot upon purchase.


Yes, I am aware that I used the term light-years to describe time, and no I am not ignorant, I did this on purpose. Time is only a state of mind and is constantly changing as we learn more about the universe. Lego Post Apocaspace or Space Zombies is a very fun theme that I'm going to continue to play around with, and encourage you to do so as well. This may be part 1 of a 3 part series.

Quoting Unknown Builder Thats amazing! But one question, how long did that take? By the way, I love the blood trail on the catwalk.
Build time? I actually built it fairly quickly for the amount of detail I added. I had to snap the bricks together over the course of two short days to finish it for an AZLUG meeting. Build time was about 14-18 hours if I remember right. The key to building is to try to spread your larger creations over the course of a few days rather than trying to tackle them all at once. This keeps your attention on the project, and allows you to play around with different concepts/ideas.

Quoting Pile Driver Awesome scene you made there,btw what started it all?
I had the idea of Space Zombies/apocaspace and really wanted to go from there. My first few ideas were building around the 'Run' on the wall, as well as the starfigher crashed through the hangar. And yes Goldman, and Dead Space were slight influences ;)

Very very cool. I'm surprised I missed this but the two things that caught my eye the most were the starfighter crashing through the wall (which is VERY well done and looks as realistic as it can get) and the blood written on the wall, which is also very eerie, but a detail which adds a lot to the whole overall setting. Again, very nice.

Brilliant job! First of all the detail is incredible. I've never seen a word written in blood with legos. It gives your moc a creepy feeling... that's positive ;). The story is also very good, I'd like to see a part 2! ~M
