Boom headshot! I saw this technic on Keith Goldman's flickr photostream.

Thanks for viewing!
It's made for the war contest with the Crimson Freedom. The team have got more yellow heads on their crations wins. So if you want to help the Metal Legion to win rate that and other ML entries 4 or 5. ML don't forget its friends.
Very nice, I owe you two more comments due to your correct identification of the Grim Reaper. My favorite part is definitely the SNOT wall with the bullet holes and headshot, that's a very cool technique. In all, this is a great dio, well done.
Great entry, Commander Sylvan! Great use of SNOT! I see almost no flaw that I can criticize; but there are still things to improve. When you make a ruined building, you have to show some rubbles and ruins. Walls usually don't evaporate spontaneously to the air. The whole 'floor' is neat and well-designed, but it's also unrealistic. Except from this, the only thing to improve is the size. After you pay attention to quality, it's time for adding more quantity. Once you master vignettes, move to dioramas. If you can't build dioramas, build bigger vignettes or challenge yourself to build something in a certain limit (for example, an 4x4 vignette. You can also set yourself a size and a topic and see what can you come up with). Also, try to edit your pictures with GIMP. It really improves the presentation. PS: I agree with Commander Rutherford- I don't think you should have made a diorama this time (you wouldn't have made it to the deadline), and when compared to the time it took you that's a really great accomplishment. Good luck, Commander Sylvan, I hope to see another ML diorama from you (I saw you already had one). The problem with dioramas is that many builders think they can put a lot of details and effort into some areas, while leaving the rest dull and plain. Don't do that.
Commander Sylvan. Do we need to update the Commanders List? I don't have any 2nd Hungarian Metal Garrison listed. I have Pinter, and the 1st, and of course, there is your 1st Hungarian Militia. At any rate, I will make the corrections.
I think you Mec stepped in something nasty! Make sure you clean it's foot before it walks back into the hanger. I think my favorite part is the head shot. That whole white structure is quite nice. I also like the road, but it is quite tiny (I know, fast build).
Considering how fast this went together (and speed is what this battle is all about!), I think this is a very good work. In the future, I would recommend putting a red sleeve on each of the Crimsonites to allow the viewer to more easily identify them.
Another Metal victory! I urge all Metal Commanders to remain committed to this battle until LAST DAY (00:00hrs 30 JUNE 2011). I predict that the vastly influential CrimDeus will post a VERY GOOD MOC. Do not under estimate his ability to draw large number of yellow heads. His work is good, and he has a large following in the main stream MOC page population!
All Metal Commanders are urged to get this MOC to HEADS UP STATUS! In Contact Alpha One, yellow heads are victory points, not opinion indicators! Attack!
