A Spastle Diorama! This is Andromeda's Wall. It keeps the uncivilized Cyberbarians that roam the Wildspace, out of the Kingdom of Rayda. The wall has several outposts along it's length, one such outpost is #5. Each outpost has a gateway, and a watch tower. #5 is the gateway to the main road through the Wildspace, and as such, it's tower is occupied by a powerful Technomage! But unfortunately, even this close to the Wall, Cyberbarians still prowl the woods along the road.
About this creation
As you can see in the above pictures, the tower has 3 rooms. The first floor holds the armory. The powercore that powers Outpost #5 is located on the second floor. The final floor is occupied by the powerful Technomage! Up the back of the tower runs a Televator, a mix of teleportation technology, and elevators. Simply step into it, and you will be teleported to whatever floor you wish, it even goes up to the very top of the tower.
And now... the minifigs!
First are the Raydian Warriors! These warriors fight to protect Rayda. They patrol Andromeda's Wall and defend against Cyberbarian raids.
Next up is some Cyberbarians! On the left is a Cyberclops armed with a deadly Plasma Hammer! In the middle is the slow but powerful Steam Troll! The Steam Troll is literally "armed" with a grenade launcher. And on the right is a Cyborc armed with a cybercleaver. (cybercleaver: a large dagger forged from a lunar alloy which allows it to phase through armor)
In the middle is the Technomage of Outpost #5, and on either side are the Robo-Knomes. Robo-Knomes are the mechanics and technitions of Outpost #5, they fix things that break, work the computers, and do any other minion class job.
On the left is Nitrosity CyJa! (from the begining i had always planned on him being a spastle character) and on the right is neBLUya, an android warrior and friend of Nitrosity.
On the left is an Orbital Archer, armed with a high-powered semi-automatic crossbow that shoots plasma bolts. In the middle is Orion the Mercenary, armed with a cutlass and a Laser SMG. And on the right is an Ironman-at-Arms armed with a Tomahawk Rifle.
This is a sentry class, Gyroguard. He patrols the wall and keeps away potential raiders with his war axe and double barrel laser rifle.
These are Minotechs, mechanical creatures who roam the wilderness. They are very dangerous, avoid at all costs.
In the center is the great Spastlark! Not much is known about this mysterious wizard, except that he is extrordinarily powerful and feared by the Technomage's, who refuse to speak of him. On either side of the Spastlark are his minions. They are called Arkites, they are completely loyal to the Spastlark, and formidable warriors.
I built this a month or so ago, and finally got around to posting it now, so the diorama is de-constructed now. All the figs are arranged on a baseplate and waiting for the next spastle thing I make.
Spastle is the combination of my two most favorite themes, sci-fi and medieval castles, so I really enjoyed building this. It started with a few spastle figs, and then some ideas for a castle, and since I don't have enough grey to build a whole castle, I decided to just go with a section of a larger wall. Since I started on MOCpages, I've really liked the few spastle creations on the pages, and I am super excited to continue building (literally, I guess) upon the theme, and increasing the number of spastle MOCs on the pages. I hope you all liked my first spastle diorama, cause I sure enjoyed building it!
I like most of the minifigures used here. The use of laser elements in place of a portcullis is ingenious. Square windows are probably a downside, though... they'd be nicer if you made them look round and futuristic or arched and medieval.
