Hehe, big guns!.. well worth the four points I just gave it. I've never made/used artillery before for Lego... always relied on missiles... this will have to change now. Cheers.

4. The guns are nice but there could be more detail near the back of the barrel.

How big are these? They look like Mk.V to me -- build a lot of them and set them on an open deck spaceship and you could probably take down Natalya's cruiser/AC that way.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Ohhh..... Build like half a dozen of those, and have Natalya's AC disable it's rockets, do a gauntlet of her AC walking to towards the artillery while rainning fire on it....

it looks pretty hard to adjust the angle of the gun, is it?

no in fact the angle is the best thing about them you can move the guns form almost straight up to about 15 degree angle downward if you are on a ledge

it was the number two thing i was focusing on when i was building the guns

thats pretty nice except you might want to make the tow arms or whatever you call them longer it'd look a little better

these are pretty great j+b. I gave them a 4 only because there are no visible controls for the crews to operate them with. A loading hatch at the bottom for shells or controls for aiming/firing would have made them more use-able in a BrikWar scenario and would have made them more worthy of a 5 IMO.

Still, they have a really cool shape to them, and would have looked just as good on a tank with a double turret

You don't need a spaceship to transport these! You need a Dodge Caravan!

You could cut a hole at the top and insert the Howitzer, and you will have a rolling platform of death!
