Greypost-14
Located in the grey-arc of defensive outposts.
About this creation
Well! here I am, finally having completed my most massive project in recent history. Well, I actually completed it a month ago, but I was lazy in posting it. So, without further ado, I present Greypost-14, otherwise known as 'the big expensive thing on my bedroom floor'.

Ah, the title shot. A pretty standard 3/4 picture. I have no idea why I decided to build this thing so ridiculously huge, considering 60% of the parts you see I bought expressly for this project. What was I thinking?

This is the actual Outpost, er- Greypost. The whole thing measures 64 by 128 studs. Ok, so it's not Kieth Goldman huge, but it is huge.



It's hard to take shots so that my limited size black background always fills the whole shot. That's why this appears to be a shot of an open clearing. I was trying to get a picture of the huts you see at the bottom of the shot, but...then we got part of my wall and the carpet. Not really the idea here.

A better shot of the huts. All you can see of the metal one is the roof, but the one made of scrap is a bit clearer. Note the power poles. I don't know what a village consisting of three huts wants with power poles, but apparently they do something.

Oh wait, I remember now. The power poles connect to this fancy generator. That certainly justifies their existence.



A nice dirt road. villages must have dirt roads, because apparently we haven't discovered anything better in the future.



Some bums looking away from the camera.

The Anti-Air defense missile launcher. first part of the base I built, and it suffers for it.




[insert obnoxious pyrotechnic comment here]






A few shots of the pilot and his plane.

No, I was not influenced by Kieth Goldman.



The drone landing pad, with the obligatory flat roof. In the future, rain runs off on it's own.






Ok, Now for the interior.
Starting on the top floor. Here is the status room, with a door to the sickbay. It only holds one person, so try not to be sick to often. In the lower left hand corner is the vac-bot. I can honestly not think of a better name.

The flashy sci-fi hologram projector. Every base needs one.





The actual sickbay. Hooray for cramped spaces. I actually cut I picture of the miscellaneous storage room because it was too cramped.

The defense gun. Not much to say, other then the design is a mashup of turrets built by people better then I.





"Severed heads and monkey arms for dinner again?"






The chapel and the chaplin. Since he's norwegian, it's probably a Lutheran service. With a potluck afterwards. Severed heads and monkey arms.








This is a shot of the supply room. I will change this to be rotated correctly when I get a chance. For now, just crane your neck.





The TV. People tend to get bored.






A couple shots of the bunks.








The elevator setup. I'm actually pretty proud with that little chunk of pure SNOT.









Now for the basement. Here we have a shot of the mechanic, stoically and defiantly standing proud. He looks like a soviet propaganda poster.






Every bit as industrial as I hoped.





Another skewed shot. Must fix.







Ok, now we will see a deconstruction of of how the various levels fit together. Pardon the flipped shots until I get them fixed, but I give you fair warning, they may not end up getting fixed.











And, we're done. Wait, we're DONE!? Finally. I thought this would never end. I need to learn to cap how many pictures I take.

This deserves 7 smilies. It may not be as big as keiths, but it's clear you put in more effort. I bet Lego would make this a special set, I would.

The sheer playability of this (working elevator, opening base, detachable roof) is amazing. But what I love about this is that the storage room shot looks better upside down than it is normal. I must have a thing for hoses running into the ground and giant liquid containers hanging from the ceiling.

This is a master class creation. Not many Lego builders have the ability to create a structure this big, with so many interior details. The elevator and garage are my favorite areas; they look perfect.

I knew you would get a milion reviews from Goldman worshippers, comparing yours to him. Much like somebody saying, "w0w ur w4rt0g 1s b3t3r den sabor scarpions"

The studs in the water need to go, but otherwise it is a brilliant creation. Lee.

WATCH OUT KEITH! It's the little details that really make it, the waterfall, powerlines, vegetation growing on the main building, all money! Obnoxious pyro comment, "How do you want your hippie, medium, well done or burnt to a cinder?" "Oh, to a cinder please." A better name for the vac-bot, the sucmaster 3000 (Goldman would by 20 of 'em thinking totally the wrong thing). I can never remember, are severed heads 350 for 4 hours or 400 for 3.5 hours, oh and be sure to shave the monkey arms before deep frying them. Trust me, think of the smell, you've been warned. Elevator... Genius. In closing Andrew, I'm so sorry I never got to your page before! Thank you ~ Chris.

I like the Goldman-ish overtones here -- setting is just as important as the building itself, and it's great to see that you took the time to build up convincing surroundings. I'd like to see more pictures of that little ship that landed at the outpost, it looks cool.

Greypost-14 is a lot to take in: all the details, especially the interior, are marvelous! Yes, I used the word marvelous and I mean it. All the new bricks you had had to buy were worth it man!

You've actually one-upped Goldman, since he's too lazy to do interiors. I am half Norwegian, and that side of the family has never served severed heads and monkey arms to me. Only thing I don't like about this: the studs on the river. They're fine on the waterfall, but smooth water looks much better.
