Is this based on 40k?

Although the model is based on 40k, are the names based on Command & Conquer?

Those are the nuts! :) I am a big fan of the extraneous tubing on Mr Blue. My only structural concern is that the legs look like weak points - enemy snipers might easily cripple these fine war machines by concentrating fire and blowing a leg off.

Potentially avoidable by building shin-armour onto the legs or projecting up from the feet, but risks obscuring the nice mechanical detailing.
CONGRATULATIONS - you just WON The Game FOREVER. Or you can carry on being a humourless nugget - your call.

Goto is from KOTOR and Vrasku is from LoTR, both names are unoriginal, but I've always wanted a dreadnought named Goto.

Snipers won't work when these things have been drop podded right behind them. Besides, they can always crawl to the foe, and they still have guns, which means there is a 9" no go zone around them. Also, ignoring the almighty amount of Space Knights that go with them is ever so dangerous.

Put your money were your mouth is boy, make some of your own dreadnoughts or shut up! The only shame I have comes from that one night I was with your mom in bed. :twisted:

Hell, you can attempt to insult me all you want, it still doesn't hide the fail of insulting over the internet.

I only said "based" because I am not one for space marines as a whole, only the killy machines they use. These do fit nicely into my Space Knight army, which uses Storm Troopers as basic troops, who lovingly die in droves.

I say, they are a noble and solid construction, but the firepower is lacking. Over Shoulder cannons/gatlings would satisfy me.

Also, Ignore J+B, he's our prick mascot.
Remember, there are no such thing as Athiests in foxholes. There's also no such things as foxes in foxholes.

- Size 3 creation
- size 2 CCW
- 2 size two guns

Unless I'm missing something, isn't the total amount of weapon size you can use just double your creation size? Originally made for fun, and then brikwars usage came into it. Really, everything I make just so happened to be usable in brikwars.

The rule are more of guidelines, so if you can bend rules like that if you want to.

I would add more to the legs...just so they look more sturdy, right now the look like a body with bones for legs..in a bad way. Bulk the legs up and I would greatly respect them. And J+B, stop spell checking please.
