Diablo Sorceress Vignette

October 29th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Experimental static vignette illuminated with LEGO LEDs and an EL wire.  

Datasheet:

Completion date: 29/10/2011
Power: 12V (external transformer)

A vignette is a static scene that fits in 8×8 studs area and is usually populated by minifigs. As a Technic builder, I have never built one before, until having a blue EL wire at hand resulted in a sudden and unexpected idea.

The vignette used two levels of dungeons to depict a sorceress from the Diablo game making her way upwards using a lightning bold spell. The EL wire, which simulated the bolt, had been completed by four LEGO LEDs that illuminated lava leaks and a torch on the vignette’s lower level. The upper level was populated by four incomplete skeletons (there was only a leg left of one of them), armed with weapons just like in the game. There two levels of dungeons also included some tenants: a spider on the upper lever and a somewhat concealed bat on the lower one. The two levers were connected by shattered floor and maintained different colour themes. I have also taken a liberty of taking the Diablo 3’s tagline: “And the Heavens shall tremble” and changing it a little:

This was a very simple creation that allowed me to try some light effects. It was nevertheless fun to build and my hamster fitted well in it :)

    @EpicTechnic
    Erm… no. It means that seller asks you to buy 4 or 8. Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 5, not 6, not 7.

    @EpicTechnic
    8 x4 means that seller has 8 items in total and sells them by fours. So in this case your options are to buy 4 or 8.

    I have a quick unrelated question for you. When purchasing items on bricklink, on the left side where it lists quantity, there is the quantity and then a multiplication sign and another number, does that mean if you but one, you get for example 4?

    Example: Qty: 8 x4

    @Black_Omega63
    It’s about 50% thinner than a stud.

    So very nice! :D
    I especially love the tagline and Lucius.
    How thick is the EL wire? Is it about the same width as a stud?
    Very nice creation.
    See ya, Black_Omega63
