A Steampunk Flying Machine

Postby Olothontor » Tue Jun 30, 2009 8:26 pm

Just a Steampunk Helicopter-ish thing built on a whim. Not for anything in particular, but I figured I would post it.

It looks like a steampunk jedi starfighter.
quite awesome, well-played sah.

Holy mother ****. That's an awesome and beautiful creation!

Though from a different view point, it does look like a Jedi fighter gone steam. Which is STILL AWESOME.
Remember, there are no such thing as Athiests in foxholes. There's also no such things as foxes in foxholes.

benkim123: Name? Hadn't thought of one. I suppose it'd be the Will-O-Wisp, at least just off the top of my head. It seems appropriate.

Gunney: Well, thank you. I do try.

Wasn't intended as such. I'm fairly certain I meant it to be a clockwork drone of some sort. Been sitting on my dresser for a while now, and what with the camera being unavailable, I couldn't post it. I've forgotten most of my ideas for it.

If you make a forum battle mixing Brikspace and normal Brikwars, and if one of the sides is Steampunk, it would come in handy. I'm not saying it is useless now though.

Yeah. That'd be inbetween Cruiser and Destroyer size stuff. If I can drudge up more, I'll certainly add in that faction in later games. Gotta build it first, though. As I recall, the Will-O-Wisp took me about a week of puzzling.

I'll try to take better pics, just to show you some details. once you see the inner workings of that "head" piece (with the red translucent stud and dark gray circle piece) you might understand why it took so long.

Awesome! It looks like the sort of thing Skynet would have built if it had been birthed in the early 19th century. I command you to build further steampunk automatons! :P
CONGRATULATIONS - you just WON The Game FOREVER. Or you can carry on being a humourless nugget - your call.
