Star Wars Epic Battles Contest Entries 7 Years, 4 Months ago  
Well here are my first 4 submissions.

Enjoy
Mandalorian Attack
Dimensions 40x30
Era: Old Republic
The Scene comes from the Old Republic, at some point in the Mandalorian Wars. A small colony in the Fringe is being over run by Mandalorians. The colonists have been able to get some minor support from Republic troops, and fight to defend their home from the oncoming Mandalorians.
The Mandalorian forces consist of every mandalorian figure so far, and three bassalik war droids. They are using a landing shuttle produced by Ebbles miniatures. The defending colonists have a number of customs and repaints mixed in with the few Republic troops. Ebbles miniatures also make their Air Speeder and Land Speeder. There are knots of defense forces, some Twi’lek scoundrels (repainted to give some variety) at the colonies cantina. There are also two metal WotC miniatures in the mix, the Human Female fringer, and metal Twi’lek scoundrel, Mostly fringe miniatures.
Scenery elements are Dwarven Forge, Ebbles miniatures, JR Miniatures, Grendel/Mega minis, Griffon Studios, Armorcast, toys and homemade.

Yuuzhan Vong
Dimensions 40x30
Era: New Jedi Order
This scene is kind of envisioned as taking place on Yavin IV during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Many of the Jedi and support staff of New Republic troops, Han, Luke, Leia, and Lando are there as a Yuuzhan Vong scout ship has landed. A desperate battle ensues.
The Yuzzhan vong forces comprise all of the Yuuzhan Vong miniatures produced so far, as well as a number of Dungeons and Dragons monsters brought in to give some support. A number of the Aberration like monsters and a few fiendish ones have been pressed into service as Vong shaped beasts, or Vong creatures. Some Gricks and Mad Slashers assault a stone outcropping where the heroes of the rebellion have taken cover. A Vong shaped Gundark (Abyssal Eviscerator) charges forward to attack some New Republic troops, with a regular Gundark following. Abyssal Skulkers attack Corran Horn. While many Jedi fight in single combat against the Vong Warriors. The troops are supported by a X-1 Viper Droid.
Luke Jedi Master defends himself against 4 Vong (a Githyanki Fighter is being used to give more variety to the Vong forces). As the twins, with little Anakin with them fight their way onboard the landed ship.
Onboard the ship the Vong forces are filled out by a few more Dungeons and Dragons miniatures, a Destrachan, and a few undead, Deathlock to again give more variety.

Terrain Elements are Micro Machine Action fleet, Shadow Core Prime by World Works Games, and Homemade items.

Battle of Felucia
Dimensions 40x30
Era: Clone Wars
A scene that is supposed to invoke the battle of Felucia, the twi’lek Jedi Aayla Secura and a few other Jedi, (a Rodian Jedi Guardian, a Human Jedi Knight), lead Troops of the Grand Army of the Republic in an engagement against Separatist forces. Several BARC, and ISP speeders lend support. Also involved in the battle are an AT-RT, Aerial Clone Trooper Captain, ARC Trooper, and Commando squad.
They face off against Hail Fire Droids, Commerce Guild Homing Spider Droids, Corporate Alliance Tank Droids, Droid Starfighter in Walking Modes, Huge Crab Droids, Crab Droids, Dwarf Spider Droids, and many many Super battle droids, as well as a small contingent of Separatist Commandos.
The terrain is all home made, with the exception of one Titanium Jedi Star fighter.

Battle of Naboo:
Dimensions 48x30 inches
Era: Fall of the Republic
A possible scene during the Trade Federation blockade of Naboo, where the Trade Federation Droid army approaches the outskirts of Theed. The Locals and Gungans band together to try to fight off the attack. The Naboo forces consist of Gungan Cavalry on Kaadu, Gungan Infantry, Flash Speeders, Captian Typho, Naboo Soldier, a Metal handmaiden figure, Queen Amidala, Qui Gon-Jinn and Various Metal and Fringe elements (mostly within the buildings, or by the N-1’s). The Trade Federation forces consist of a slew of Battle droids, Destroyer droids, Droid Starfighter in Walking Mode, Darth Maul, Nute Gunray in a Command speeder, and Neimoidian Soldiers as guards.
Some of the Terrain and dressing is either homemade, or Dwarven Forge, Ebbles miniatures or Micro Machines Action Fleet.

Ahh, yes as you say in the next post, but for those not reading that thread.

It's set up, i actually have pictures of the base layout, and a tilesystem version of it, but i haven't gotten a chance to populate it with anything. I just have the bare DF walls and floors up. I am actually kind of waiting on a bit from a Griffon Auction, hope it gets here today... If not i'll run with out, but it would be cool to have.

The DoE set ups will get done maybe over the weekend or next week. I might just keep the Sci-Fi up and do the other 1-2 i was going to use with it, and just hope i get the DoE new stuff in before the contest ends. If not i'll just work around it. Should still do most of what i want to do....

Very, very, very nice! The closer shots are really the bomb. I think you've got the perfect combination of elements here: massive deployment of minis, great basic terrain (love that grass table you workshopped for us a few months ago!), really neat accessories (DF! DF! DF!) and a nice variety of setups.

I imagine you've already put these away, but if you plan on taking any more pics, or just don't mind going back to the start a little, I'd recommend adding some shots of the battle-in-progress. These "armies swarming, @#$@#'s about to go down" shots are a blast, and very evocative of LOTR/TPM sequences, but it's also great to see the full-on chaos of the battle, either from far away, or some cool close-ups of melees, a few figures engaging with armageddon unfolding behind them....

Good luck!

These are really great GS! I was anxiously awaiting these pics. I copied them all to my HD. I certainly did not realize the extent of your SWM collection. Nice work!

heheheheheh, you don't know the half of it. When i am done with one of the set ups i am bagging the minis for ease of finding later. So far only the metal, and one of the VR's (oh and the Walking mode droid fighters) have been used in more than 1 set up. Everything else is actuall multiples. It took freakin 6 hours to sort all of them! I have three of those big card boxes full (to overflowing) of them. And i still want more stormtroopers and Droids!

I am itching to do a rebel vs Imp set up it will most likely be the next one after i finsh what i have now, and i have some ideas, i just have to figure out how to make it happen....
Spent most of lunch in Tile system fooling around. But i think i will go back to good old graph paper to do it, some times it's just easier to do the planing that way then see how it goes in TS.

L,
If i were doing these for myself for the fun of it, i would do that. But i think for the Contest it kind of has to be static. I did do just the start of battle in both the Mandalorian, and Felucia. In the front of the Mandy attack they have hit the local bar, and there is one dead guy ;) . And in the Felucia some of foremost figures are engaged.

I tried to capture the feel of the full on combat in the Vong one.

I will do a few more close ups on the Next set ups of in the DF, the next batch will be mostly DF. but i wanted to get at least these submitted and off the camera. I am taking these at the highest resolution my camera can do to get them to come out as detailed as possible, so i had to empty it, and i really wanted to get some feedback these.



Here is the sad sad thing, with all of the minis i have, i wish i had more to actually make some causlity figures.
I may have to see if i can pick up some cheap droids, clones and stormies on ebay to get some causlity minis. Got to go looking for Vong again... I have two of the promo repaints, and would love to try my hand at doing some repaint on those to get some different armor types.
A few of the clones look good for it now, but i want some dedicated to dying. :D
