A venture into forced perspective! La Fortaleza borracho [the drunken fortress] is one of Tequilatron's strongholds in Asia. High walls, defensive capabilities, industrious tequila bottling and means of transportation all around!
About this creation
Decisive Action 2 Category 12: Infrastructure

Infrastructure refers to the fundamental facilities and systems serving a country, city, or area, including the services and facilities necessary for its economy to function and by extension, its ability to wage war. It typically characterises technical structures such as roads, bridges, tunnels, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, and so forth, and can be defined as "the physical components of interrelated systems providing commodities and services essential to enable, sustain, or enhance societal living conditions." In DA2, your ability to build and maintain infrastructure is represented by your Infrastructure MOC. Your Infrastructure MOC must comply with the following 5 specifications:

1. Your Infrastructure MOC is a diorama and must contain either a roadway, rail line or canal.
2. Your Infrastructure MOC must contain a building (factory, power plant, resevoir, etc.)
3. Your Infrastructure MOC may be any scale.
4. Your Infrastructure MOC must employ "forced perspective" in at least one photo.
5. Your Infrastructure MOC must be named and explained in the write-up.




Forced perspective: D.A.2. Category 12 - Infrastructure

Papa Tequila oversees activities at the drunken fortress


As he takes flight in his private Tequila Boom Boom Blimp, he's accompanied by a bottle of Tequilatron's finest tequila, his private SMG and two marines. In the background, a part of the fortress is seen with an inbound shuttle ready to land. Behind the mighty walls lie the mountainous regions of Asia. Thanks IKEA for the LED strips who fit very nicely between two wall secions in the back.

An overview of the drunken fortress, details and features


There's infrastructure all around: we see two roads going into a tunnel under the fortress' control center. There's a monorail crossing the fortress halfway, with a station on the right side. In the background there's a bottling factory and a storage facility with several silos. Mounted on the fortress walls are several watchtowers and AA defense guns. In the front left two landing pads are situated, with shuttles, helicopters and transports flying in and out. A shuttle happens to fly into the scene at this very moment. Finally, next to it across the road we see a railway assembly factory, along with a big crane doing the heavy lifting and oh look, it's a real blue brick wall!

Bonus vignette!

A peek inside the bottling factory. The conveyor belt moves along crates filled with emtpy bottles, waiting to get filled by the two nozzles. Quality is at its highest due to the ever so sober factory master.

Thanks a lot Matt, you can always play catch up when the game's done ;) It has been (and still is) an outstanding game which really got the creativity pumping. Working out the different categories pushed me out of my spacey comfort zone and I liked it. It was fun developing the theme too. The social aspect is the other half, gotta love them bunkers!
Quoting matt rowntRee God I wish I could throw you a like as this deserves a full five smileys as does all your work in the ORBAT. You've really brought some crazy A game to the group, raising the bar and the shot glass. Cheers, Pico! This is freakishly outstanding!

Oh yes, 3 months in at this point and 13 generals left from the original 32ish, some more dormant than the others but we're getting to the so-called endgame soon. Will be very interesting! Thanks for your support and taking the time to keep watch on my builds, it's very much appreciated :)
Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head This thing is still going on huh? I must say, Pico, you have outdone yourself with this one. I want to go live in that fortress!

I can relate. It's all about the right dose but it's a thin and dangerous line.. Do not leave that barstool in any case! Thanks Marc ;)
Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde The last thing Tequilla did to me wasn´t nearly as nice, as this build! CHEERS!

Now's the time for upgrades and possibly some additional WC mocs ;) Thanks chief, I'm on the rebuild job but pesky arctic persons and ninja's keep distracting me!!
Quoting Keith Goldman I was hoping you'd finish your ORBAT so I'd get one more awesome MOC out of you. This did not disappoint! General, you are specifications accurate and ready to rebuild your mighty empire. Good luck in turn 13!

That sounds like a tree I'd like to meer one day :D I'm sure anything that has borracho in it's name is worth an adventure! Thanks for your like and comment Jacob!
Quoting Jacob Lyman La Fortaleza Borracho, that's funny. In Argentina I met a tree known as El Palo Borracho, aka "The Drunk Stick" and for some reason your MOC reminds me of those odd Spanish names which say drunk in them.

In fact it is quite big indeed, needed a quite large background to cover the view from the blimp. I forgot to take pics of the set up.. would've given an impression. Desperate times call for desperate measures, when you're pushed into a corner you use all the space you can get! ;) Cheers David
Quoting David Roberts I love the little fort (which must be quite a large build!), with all of its vehicles and rails and landing pads. Nice walls too. Isn't it dangerous having all of that booze ajd guns mixed up together?

Thanks Stapehan, I enjoyed the whole setting up this thing for the photography. Quite different than a spaceship, that's for sure.
Quoting Stephan Niehoff Very impressive your work. The entire scene is constructed consistent. I love the little wheel crane, and the ships. But the landscape in the background has become really beautiful. As you can very well see of the picture with "View from the HQ". Hats off my friend.
