CONTEST NAME: Wrinkled Helicopter

GOAL: To create an aesthetically pleasing or technically involved vignette based on a videogame... out of Legos.

GUIDELINES: Only certified Lego pieces, decals and minifigure gear (made by Arealights, Brickarms, or Brickforge) are also acceptable. All Vigs must be built on an 8x8 base. However, once the base is established, you are free to expand upward and outward to a degree. For instance, this sort of thing is totally acceptable and encouraged.

Things that are not allowed are these sorts of things. They're great, they're cool, but they are just too big, and they will lose this contest if you enter them! We're working on short and sweet. wink.gif

PRIZES: The winner of the contest will be awarded ONE Zboard Gaming Keyboard, new in box. (Depending on winrar location, minimal shipping may need to be paid.)

CONTEST IS PLANNED TO END ON THE 3rd of December. So bust out your Legos for the first time in forever, and get building. I want to see some Sweet, new stuff. No 'already mades'. there's a lot of games coming out soon! Brick it up!


Suggestions:
Brütal Legend
Modern Warfare 2
ODST
Left 4 Dead 2
Assassin's Creed 2
Super Monkey Ball XIVIII

This part of the guidelines kinda confused me. We are allowed Brickarms/Brickforge/Arealight as well as decals (like Scorp's or our own customs)? Thanks, I shall start to piece together an idea at once!

I just got to the forums and was kinda confused with "vignettes"

The 2 main questions I have are

Can they be only 1 seen with a little paragraph?
Do they have to have a story with them?

From what I seen this is what I think they are
A series of 2-9 pictures with 2-4 sentence's explaing each picture. Overall it will create a small story with picure's. Am I correct?
Please answer these A.S.A.P biggrin.gif

Uh, why did you post that twice 27 mins apart? was it a glitch in the system or something and also actually create a vig. from a game rather than make something random and then try to think about what game it could possibly come from. Just some words of advice.

EDIT: Nevermind Ter deleted it. Anyway I have added more pics to the set.

I think you need to build a vig based after a videogame. I mean, while it's applicable to a game, the characters don't really resemble MW2 chars or L4D2 Chars either. The setting is recognizable from any maps, or even recognized as inspired by said venues.

So, while you can enter it, vigs are to be judged vaguely by representation to the game, building skill and picture quality. Keep that in mind. wink.gif

EDIT: Also, it's not even on an 8x8. That's like, and 8 + 4. That's tabbod bruh. Check the rules through again. wink.gif

Okay thanks for all of this, it really gave me a Idea on what I should work on. The thing that I am wondering is, how do we represent a map on only a tiny 8x8 baseplate?

But anyways I'll work on a MW2 entry since I just bought some army decals...even though they are...err, cold war era. They may work. Well wait and see biggrin.gif
