Hiya gang!! It has been a while. Have been completely drowned out by work junk and other priorities, but finally I can put a closure for now on this little bash that started piecing together months ago. Consider this my first little endeavor of 08.



Original bash idea went way back some time in 97 when 21C released their SWAT boxsets in urban and black BDU. The urban outfit was a perfect base for Half-Life OpFor. For some reason it was put on the backbench and basically forgotten since. Fast forward back to present, I excavated the old HL game disc a while ago then realized that there was a lost bash on the to-do list that needed to be completed. So instead of just doing the marine, I twisted around the idea to have a team of ex-SF and intel instructors who trained them, and pushed the timeline forward to 2010.

Original canon plot's ending was to have the facility nuked by the shadowy G-Man after military withdrew their clean-up ops sometime in 200X. Freeman was offered a way out by G-Man: Either worked for him or faced wave after wave of aliens.

The ever shadowy G-Man


Now my little elaboration, assuming the incident happened around 2000
Year in the current timeline is 2010. The infamous Black Mesa incident a decade ago seems like distant memory. Before G-man nuked the facility, he had all vital research material and personnel teleported to key facilities all over continent America. Most of them went to Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, other headed for smaller facilities elsewhere; Mount Weather, Vandenberg, Alaska sites to name a few. One of the key teleportation researches was transferred to Los Plenas complex built deep inside the remote mountain ranges of South Western Colorado Rockies. Teleportation research continues relatively uneventful until one morning the same resonance cascade that ripped apart Black Mesa complex years earlier reoccurred once again in the complex central lab, causing dimensional rips all over affected areas. Unknown life forms entering the facility through the rips; duty staff barely had chance to send out rescue signal to Dugway headquarters. Almost immediately military command mobilized their retooled Hazardous Environment Combat Unit (HECU) to quell the incursion. The real question is whether HECU has learned from Black Mesa, and not to make the same mistake again.

Original plan was to have two more instructors: one commo & one medical; plus a companion mini photo story. My hunch however ,told me it's time to move on to next project. So there ya go, less 2 guys and a story.

Obviously there have more rooms for improvement, but I'll indulge you bros with what have been done so far. Enjoy!! :thumb

You know Leo, I don't care how many times I see one of your new bashes and I think to myself there's no way you can outdo yourself...you come up with the next one. With all due respect to everybody on this forum there are no customizations that I look forward to more than yours. Absolutely outstanding buddy!

An absolutely outstanding team Leo, your brilliance has never been greater. I absolutely love your work, but this team just inspires new levels. Like dura said, you've totally outdone yourself again.
Each character has such style and attitude to them, as if anything could be meager here. ;)

Looks like a killer start to 2008. I hope you get time to relax and sneak in a few minutes to bash up some more sweet stuff this year, I rather miss seeing your new works every so often on the board.
Also I assume Mike is SEF, if so, killer work on that custom knife. The handle looks sick. :thumb Take care and don't work too hard~ :)
