Well then, here we are in round three. Just a heads-up: the commentary for this MOC is going to be even more boring than usual, the photos are going to be ever so slightly blurry, and the MOCs are going to be worse than usual. Without revealing much, let's just say I'm not in an inspirational or building mood right now, and haven't been for the past two weeks.
Let's start by checking out the battle from above. It's times like these when I wish I had the Photoshop skills to remove all those 1x2 clear bricks from the photos.
Here we can easily see the remainder of the Zoltgaist forces (red) pursuing the small Blacktron fleet, seeking to recover the stolen artifact the Blacktron forces have stolen.
Here we can see the transport that contains the artifact in question, surrounded by what remains of the Blacktron heist force.
A close-up of the transport. What artifact have the cunning Blacktron forces laid their hands on? You'll find out later.
Enough of those things. Let's see some action shots (kind of)! Seen here are the two Blacktron fighters that command the force.
Seen here are the remains of the special forces fighters that accompanied the Zoltgaist forces in the pursuit. In the background is a Blacktron heavy frigate.
Seen here are the retreating Blacktron forces for the safety of the nearby Blacktron station.
A Zoltgaist squad.
Moving on to the ships themselves. Here are all of the Blacktron ships, in overview-mode.
Look at that sweet row of fighters... neat.
And the awesomely awesome fighters. Unfortunately, this is not my design, but it belongs the great and unfortunately late nnenn.
The three surviving Blacktron heavy frigates.
The Blacktron transport that's currently carrying the stolen artifact. Just what is this artifact? Well...
Behold the Ninja Statue through royal blurriness! Yes, that is the new trophy found in the Series 2 Minifigures. The statue is held in a barred container. For visual purposes, the top of the container (hatch) has been opened.
An overview shot of the Zoltgeist fleet.
More rows of fighters!
The special forces fighters... or what's left of them, anyway. Go Blacktron!
The four heavy fighters.
For some illogical reason, after this point the MOCpages uploader tool(s) is not allowing me to upload photos. As soon as it works again, I'll upload photos of the space station. Sorry for the inconvenience on this one.
We'll be right back.
Ah, it looks like I can upload photos again. So, here's the Blacktron base that has been characteristically constructed inside an asteroid. Cool, huh?
As the Blacktron fleet nears the outpost, reinforcements take off from the pad.
See that thing at the back? That's a docking port for larger ships, such as the transport.
The outpost's fixed defenses. See all those guns? Awesome!
The engineers are quickly constructing a new fighter.
And we end with a small shot showing the Blacktron outpost. Cya next time.
