After a successful mission in Crimsonite territory, Tiger, Moe, and Red decide to celebrate. With Tim and Bob back at the base, they enter Crim's Bar for a few rounds. When three Crimsonites enter, however, things get interesting pretty quickly.
About this creation
The Crimsonites rush the ML soldiers. Thinking quickly, they grab the closest thing to them and get ready for a fight. Moe breaks off a light fixture, Tiger grabs a cup from the bar, and Red grabs a mouse that came for Ladies' Night.
The ML soldiers quickly knock their enemies senseless, knocking them all to the ground and knocking one out as cold as the beer he was coming here to get.
An overhead camera catches the whole thing on tape. A tape, no doubt, that the soldiers will take home with them and watch over and over and over again. You know, when they aren't on a mission.
The bartender is indifferent to the ensuing chaos around him.
Two of the Crimsonites get up and get out. One, however, is awakened from his coma by the rat that is gnawing on his back.
He jolts up, causing the rat to attack his head.
As he leaves, the ML soldiers and the bartender are treated to the sound of a 6-year-old girl shrieking in terror.
The Metal Legion soldiers are successful once again!
Bartender: Great, just great. My bar and my reputation are ruined! Get out, all of you! GET OUT!!!
The set without figs.
The ML soldiers, Moe, Tiger, and Red, the Crimsonites, and the now very angry bartender.
Thanks for checking this out! And as The Pied Pauper would say, Loyal to the Legion! (If you haven't joined yet, you totally should!)
Commander Guy. Pretty odd, but I'm down with it. On the up side: Classic Blacktron torsos (yes, that’s a plus...I love those torsos!). Also, I like the way they all turn at once, grab weapons at once, and attack at once. Like a highly choreographed dance of destruction! Not normally a big fan of musicals, but I think this might be one. Seems to belong on a stage. Oh, and the whole mouse deal is epic. Mouse as weapon… that bites the target...on the head? A first use, I think. On the down side, I think Commanders AA and Puaper nailed it. More detail! The story works without the detail, but those little extra touches, pictures on the wall, plants, chairs...they bring the scene to life. This is an awesome entry. Keep in the fight! We need this "outside of the box" thinking. Attack...with a mouse!
I like it

It's a great start, but try to add some details and furniture. If you don't have enough tiles to make a studless floor, try to make a pattern with studs (checkerboard pattern, for example) or just make it plain red. The green floor looks unrelated.
Thanks for all the comments guys. I appreciate the feedback. Looking through the comments, I know now what to work on in the future. I would also like to thank Commander Rutherford for creating this building challenge. I liked it a lot and had a lot of fun with it! Thanks again you guys. -Lucas
I liked the comic style approach and the rat on the head! That's going to leave a mark... I would liked to have seen a bit more detail, pictures on the walls, some furniture, things like that. It's the little details that really bring a vig to life. You have a good start. Keep them coming. We will need your support in coming weeks. Loyal to the Legion!
