    I thought I'd start a new thread for the people on this forum that love taking photos of epic battles.

    I'll start it off with a bang, Vikor vs Gygor!

    Once upon a time in Preternia there was a Hero unlike many other:

    This man protected the lands in the North

    His name was Vikor and he was a relentless warrior

    Those times were not without peril as large evil monsters roamed the land

    Reacting with speed and instinct honed in countless battles Vikor evaded his enemy

    The challenge was issued

    Using a language that could not be misunderstood

    When battle was instigated Vikor knew that his opponent was larger and stronger then himself

    But strength is not all that is required to win a fight, using his lightning reflexes and nimbleness, Vikor got under the arm of the monster and leapt upon it's back

    The Monster reacted with anger trying to toss Vikor off


    Charging back into battle Vikor delivered a killing blow

    But the monster was dumb and refused to die, it had also been hardened by many battles
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9c.jpg
    Becoming lost in the fight Vikor suddenly found himself within the reach of the monster
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9d.jpg
    It picked him up like a child would pick up a small toy
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9e.jpg
    And tried to end him by throwing him against the mountain side
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9f.jpg
    Tumbling around Vikor saw his sword
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9g.jpg
    Stretching for it he heard the monster at his back
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9h.jpg
    it was breathing down his neck, so close... So close...
    http://i245.photobucket.com/albums/g...el_2008/9i.jpg
    The sword itself held no special qualities, Vikor relied on his own skill and not magic for his battles

    **Please read and follow forum rules on making back-to-back posts. Thanks.**

    rolling away from the monster, Vikor picked up his shield and issued a second challenge

    The Battle was over quickly, Vikor, protector of the land again victorious

    Holding his trophy aloft Vikors face hardened

    The monster was but one of many, but he would stand against them all, to protect his people, his land from all evil, as long as his chest held breath, his sword was sharp and his muscles were young.


    Looking forward to all of your epic battles! You don't really have to post a story with the pictures, I just found this fitting here

    Excellent pictures, Haradrel! I look forward to seeing more from you in the future.

    (I really need to get a good camera...)
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    Thanks so much for the kinds words

    You really don't need a good camera to get good shots - I started out with a small compact camera and that worked just fine for a few years

    I'm hoping this will catch on as I figure that every person on this forum has a little story teller in themselves and might want to share one or two. What better way to do it then with pictures?

    Really excellent shots, but Gygor should be a hero in my book (yet another bio fail IMO) so it put a bit of a damper on my excitement.

    Great shots! But do these really need a new thread apart from the Collection Pics thread? Not hatin' . . . they're great shots.

    I figure that collection should primarily handle collection pictures, new figures, displays etc, whilst this could be more action oriented.
    I dunno, but it feels right to me to separate the two

    WOW! Thats some of the coolest toy shots I've seen. I was actually leaning into the screen on the edge of my seat looking and slowly scrolling down to the next pic!! Killer stuff bro!!
    My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.

    Haradrel, you just inspired me to do a little bit of story telling with some of mix 'n' match guys. I'd better get cracking on one while we've still got mountains of snow built up. Peace.

    Incredible stuff. It must have taken you a long time to do, kudos to you. It's really well done and artistic.

    True that, but the feral cry on his face lends him to be an excellent monster, maybe like G.I.Joes Storm Shadow he turns at some point.

    Thank you, that is very high praise there! Seems like I hit the spot at least with some of the shots and story telling.

    You know the best part of it - the only thing done in photoshop is contrast correction and the letterbox strips, that's the sun in the background - the picture
    came out like that! I feel it got the mysterious and epic quality in it straight off the bat.

    I agree.

    A collection and battle are two different things.

    Each deserves their own thread.

    Amazing shots, although Gygor would destroy Vikor.

    My 6 year old son Adam wanted to contribute.
    Allthough it is a iphone picture and 200x figures, it is (the end of) a battle.

    He is since recently playing with his figures again.

    Man, I cant wait to get Kahn and SA He-man in MOTUC.
    Maybe we know more in a couple of hours after NYTF?
