The first one is fantastic, but the second one is just a group of blocky pieces. Improve that 2nd one, please.

Nice work, I've been having a hard time finding a good formula of bricks for this style of artillery.

Keep up the good work

Copied from part of another thread of mine is an oceanic artillery gun:

IVhorseman wrote:the GU, while maintaining a primarily space-borne navy, still keeps a healthy oceanic fleet of vehicles, mainly due to the fact that the majority of colonized planets (and especially the older ones) are rife with water, including several completely oceanic worlds. the result is the strongest oceanic military in the galaxy.

one of the heralds of the GU's might and efficiency is the PTB-Krakken Patrol boat. don't let the name fool you: this patrol boat is a ruthless killing machine, capable of sinking enemy ships in a single blow from it's giant freaking gun from miles away. to take care of closer targets, cannons defuse the situation, and a minigun should deter any swimmers.

I actually really like how the "working" engine turned out. it looks geary, and it ACTUALLY turns! the gun is also something i can't get over - it was modeled after a german Flak-88, and has folding shields. I actually really like this: it gives the option of providing more or less cover from sides and front, while providing a bigger or larger target to the enemy.

something else i played around with is experimental ammunition. this ship's smaller cannons can fire two types: the first is a magnetotronic manipulator. it fires at a target, and if it successfully hits, no damage is done. instead, the player can push or pull the target up to 5" away or towards the gun that fired it, once every turn. the other ammunition this uses is tha diamond flechette shot. in addition to a normal cannon shot, 2d6 damage's worth of shattered, high-velocity crystals cut through everything caught in a two finger cone, within 10". each of these shots must be manually loaded into the chamber.

as for the crew, there's 4 minifigs on board: a technician who pilots the thing, a gunner who fires the guns, a lieutenant who helps aim the guns and give orders, and a Dark-Ops captain. the lieutenant can double the skill of a minifig who is targeting something with a siege weapon if the lieutenant has a clear line of sight and can use his bugle. the dark-ops captain is a member of the GU's secret dark-ops program, which is deployed in high-risk battles on any terrain.

The cannon could have a SNOT ending.
