Some mecha

Postby Airpi » Sun Jun 29, 2008 4:11 pm

So, a while back I was taken by an urge to create a Dreadnought.This isn't an exactly faithful model, but it's dreadnought-like and that's good enough for me. These pictures came out a little grainy, so sorry about the quality.

So here's the dreadnought, with some Grimdark Marines for scale.
Image
On its left arm it has an Assault Cannon. And some tissues, because it is very musty in my basement.
Image
And on the right a missile pack, making this a fire support or Hellfire dreadnought.
Image

Image
Oh ffffff..... What is that?

Image
That it one nasty looking piece of machinery.

Image
Look at all those guns! This thing is going to ruin somebody's day! I still need to add rockets to the pod on either side though. Once I find more little cylinders.

Image
The legs are a little stumpy, and I need to make the feet match, but its got that reverse-knee styling that I love. I stuffed some bits of a plastic bag in the joints to make them a little stiffer, they were folding under the weight of the main body.

Image
The cannons are kind of asymmetric, I need to find another one of those small cones.

Image
They're loose cannon rogue cops living life in the fast lane, cleaning up the streets with their special brand of rough justice.

Err... I'm afraid I'm to blame for the "triangle" thing...

Anyway, good job.

My War CyborPhant 69000 destroys your FOX. No takesy backsies.

Anyway, awesome mech, But the Dreadnought's legs, could use a little more bulk and less length. Like a dwarve or something.

That mech is still awesome though, freaking awesome! But my War elephant still beats it with it's trample attacks!

Yeah, I want to go back over the legs on the dreadnought again, if I can figure out how to make them thicker it would be great. Apparently they should have a bunch of hoses and crap hanging loose down there too.

Triangle job?
