Tigress's Zoological Wonders!

Postby tigress303 » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:30 pm

After hearing about Brikwars, I was inspired to dig out my old Lego box. As a child I was more fascinated with animals than with people... So I had barely enough minifigures for a squad but lots of spare parts, half made animals, and some special Lego animals. (horse, dragon, etc.) So I decided to take old sets and creations and revamp them for battle. These are the results of my tinkering. (Please excuse the bad photo quality. These were hurriedly taken with an Ipod camera.)

This was a rock golem I modified. I call him Bonecrusher. Living deep underground, he is nearly blind but his other senses are very sharp.

I creature I dubbed Glider from when I was maybe eight. I didn't alter the design but simply repaired a leg that had gone missing.

This is Landwalker. Although the triceratops itself was from a kit, the modifications of the horns, vegetation growing on it's back, and missile launcher on it's sides were my doing.

The use of Landwalker as a launch point/home base for Glider.

Ruby the dragon with a turret strapped to her back being manned by a pilot. Although the jewel around her neck is purely for show, it could result in a more entertaining version of capture the flag.

And last but not least, PWNy, an explosive wielding, beer guzzling, lightning shooting, insane horse. Inefficient, but ridiculously fun to use.[/list]
Edit: -_- I am not tech savvy.

To get the image to show on the forum, first right click the image, then click on Properties (Internet Explorer) or View Image Info (Firefox). In Firefox, the image link is under Location: and in Internet Explorer it's under Address(URL):

Copy the link and then click on the Img button when posting here. Paste the link in between the img and /img tags and then hit preview to make sure it worked.

For more clarification, reply to this post with a quote.

Thanks for the advice! I now have an account but am struggling with the dimensions. Do I need to edit it in another program before moving the new edited image to Dropbox?

Also hello everybody!

Yes, you need to resize the images yourself in some art program.
I use Photoshop, Gimp is free, there are others.

I use Inkscape. It's free and fairly easy to mass-resize. Also to make vectors.
