Walking Doom

For all ye people who like to see a good unit or two, prepare to see my most treasured units:

These are my for-now unnamed Titans, of Fire and Ice. If anything can take these things out, it's another Titan (Just like AoM: TT), or an army that has the size of Manhattan. They both have equal stats, apart from elemental powers, which are:
-Attack=3d6
-Defense=5d10
-Skill=3d6
3d6 may not seem like much, but they each have three heads!!! That is 9d6 if you get each of the use (4 for normal, 4 for environmental) and I was able to take out 1 size of another Titan when I got all use good. I think 45 was my highest roll. Environmental powers for the Ice Titan is freezing a lake, and you roll against another player, like a Heroic Feat (You could say it kinda is, but Titans aren't heroic, they're gods in their own right). The Fire Titans power can put something into flames, provided it is a flammable object (i.e., a wooden catapult) and steadily do 2d6 damage to it over 5 turns (You can set mini-figs on fire too).

So these two are a two-man army. Although I still have my giant Trebuchet and my cavalry squads for quadruple killing and war. :D [/url]

You're url tags are backwards. I like your units, but prepared to be bashed for using Bionicle.

yes, many of us here do not like bionicle that much.
it gives a different style that looks way different.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

Newton's fifth law:

If thoueth useseth bioniketh, thoueth willeth beth stupideth, owing to the uknique feature of earth's gravity, BIONICLE SUCKS MAN!!
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Wow... off to a charismatic and warming start, are we?

From what I can tell, Bionics has leaked over quite a bit into other LEGO sets, and some of what it brings is nice. However... I think it discourages a lot of creative engineering and definitely shouldn't be used as a crutch.
I'm not saying that's what you're doing here, Safor... so you can un-bunch your panties.

I don't like Bionicle because it could NEVER, in A MILLION YEARS, be converted to real lif* scale. There are NO giant robots with ball-and-socket joints, and they just aren't feasible. I prefer old fashioned technic joints, if it is IMPOSSIBLE to make clip joints. Clips for the win!

*Fact of lif.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Technic ball and socket joints FTW. Other than that though, the entire line can burn in the eternal hellfires of damnation.

I would have been more impressed if you had done more than just stick a pair of wings and a new head on the makuta model. If you're gonna even expect us to show even a little bit of interest in a bionicle model, you had best build from the ground up rather than build 80% from an instruction booklet.

I'd hardly call those moving statues, thank you.

Guys,I dare you to go say that at bzpower. Now if you where to the see those bionicle MOCS some of those guys build,you'll be pretty amazed. I build with both bionicle and standard legos,but rarely together,the exeption is light walkers. most of the time however I keep them separate. I'm serios go look at some of the MOCS at BZpower.com some are pretty awesome.

I know there are awesome bionicle based creations, but this isn't one of them.
I personally find it much much more difficult to make something look cool and neat with bionicle as I find this with normal legos. especially with smaller collections. you have to get really ingenious to make it look cool.

even so combining the two has given me nice results, where the ball and sockets would make it more posable while I could form everything around it with ordinary legos.

EDIT: I checked that site and as I feared, the majority of what they posted on those forums looked bad. but there were some really cool creations amongst them

I think some peeps should go over to the pathetic excuse for a website BZpower and shout at their thick skulls that bionicles suck.
