Another more improved lego vignette that I made of the best selling Playstation 3 video game Resistance: Fall of Man. I hope enjoy and like it.
About this creation
The Chimeran threat began in Russia. The origin of the virus is unknown, but its effects were devastating and swift. In the 1930s reports of biological experiments began leaking out of Russia, then reports of villages destroyed overnight, then entire cities. Everyone in Europe feared the Russians had developed a weapon of unparalled power. The truth was far worse.
The Chimera stayed sealed within Russia for over a decade. Then, in 1949, they launched an attack that overwelmed all of Europe in a matter of weeks. For several months the British thought England was safe. But in October of 1950, the Chimera burrowed under the channel. They had prepared for them, but in three months time, the war was lost. They abandoned the cities to the Chimera, and retreated to scattered military bases and outposts. The Chimera had won.
Great Britain. July 1951.
On July the 11th, 1951, the Americans launched an assualt on the Eastern coast of England. On the second wave of that assualt was a Sergeant named Nathan Hale from the 1st Army Rangers Regiment. The actions of that Ranger have become a matter of both scrutiny and myth. What follows are the known events of his life from July 11th to July the 14th, the day he was last seen . . .
The streets and buildings of Great Britain were in ruins and quiet since the Chimera attack . . .
"Jesus, what happened here?"
Dead Amercian Black Ops soldiers. It was believed that they were already in Great Britian months before the main American assualt came. They were all dead lying around here and there in the video game.
Also, many of the dead Black Ops soldiers have documents or ammo lying next to them.
"The Hybrids must had gotten to them, or the Steelheads."
A lucky civilian that caught the virus, and died, instead of turning into the Chimera.

Side view #2
Sergeant Nathan Hale and a American Ranger. They are carrying M5A2 carbines with grenade launchers (credit to aksels putnins for the idea). There shouldn't be scopes on the carbines by the way.
Sergeant Nathan Hale was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in November 1922. His parents succumbed to lingering complications from the influenza epidemic of 1918 shortly after his birth and without nearby relatives, he was declared a ward of the state. After that, he didn't find a job that suited him and started drifting before he enlisted in the U.S. Army where he was elected to the Inaugural Ranger Orientation Program.
The U.S. Army was deployed in Britain to face the Chimeran threat. No sooner had they landed, thousands of soldiers were incapacitated by the Chimeran virus. Hale was the only victim to recover.
Captain Rachel Parker (British Intelligence)
After the Chimera invaded, her father was unfortunately killed trying to get Parker to safety, and it was because of this that she vowed to fight on and rid England of the Chimera. Her knack of making the best out of any given situation had never failed her and when she comes across Nathan Hale she finds herself using her tactical nous more and more in an effort to drive the Chimera away. She always carries a radio on her back during the game and is also on the lego figure too.
Lieutenant Steven Cartwright (British Commando)
Before Nathan Hale arrived in England, Cartwright led a small commando unit in his native Somerset, who have been causing numerous problems to the Chimeran forces stationed in the area and with Cartwright's favorite weapon being the L23 Fareye, he often causes his enemies many problems on the battlefield.

How about trans-blue tiles? I've seen that before and it looked great. The Tri Droid is still not done, but I would say it's gonna be 48 studs tall. But don't forget the legs are really thin, so it won't be a massive creation. Good luck on your moc! ~M
Thanks for the lego video link. Btw, the link about the tri droid you send me doesn't work. Tomorrow I'm starting to build again. The head with eyes and barrel are finished. The neck shouldn't be a problem, probally use some wheel parts. The lower leg was also done, so only the feet and remaining leg parts to do. I still need to buy more pieces, so don't expect it soon. I wish I could speed things up but I'm a perfectionist with lego. If I don't like it I won't post it. What is your upcoming moc? ~M
I love the under-barrel grenade launcher! I have been wondering how to make one and you just nailed it. The moc itself is a little to colorfull. If you made it mostly grey it would have a more creepy vibe. Have I told you I'm a big fan of creepy mocs? ~M
As I already told you once; you're so good on making these kind of MOCs. This one is so nice, the fire effects, the blood effects, the dead guys... everything looks amazing and well detailed, you're a quality builder, keep on this level >>> peace.. Firas
