I have to agree. I have always liked Alucard as a character. :D

this pic explains the backpacks pretty well. The things at the top look like cut tubing if u were wondering.
well, it basically explains everything actually...

Anyway, these guys are way bigger than minnifigs, so if u plan to use them for brikwars, be sure to include some backdrop that they are "genetically engineered" much like the real ones.

That's what I was using, but I think I just figured out what piece I was missing for the backpack... we'll find out.

Those hardsuits are beautiful, and I love the bolter design. Heck, it's all great.
Does anyone know how the tip of the bolter's barrel was built? I'm assuming those are bolters...
Hm. Something else of his, unrelated: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=4190757
I really like how he used the tires to hold gun barrels together here... seems worth mimicking.

they look good, but look too fragile to do much with.

Nice find Shadowscythe.

While this is a great ship, I still like Natalya's new one better. But this one is great.

Just curious cause I have been trying to do this, is there a method that you can transfer the parts list from an ldd to the lego site so that you don't have to pay the messed up price that ldd charges?
Only 2 things are infinite the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not so sure about the former- Albert Einstien.

Check the price in LDD and then have it automatically generate building instructions.

In the drop down menu from there - have LDD generate the instructions as a HTML page, and it will then include a parts list for your MOC, use that list to order from pick a brick - whats what I did for the Tarantula.
