Well, there are quite a few ways of doing dried nutmegs.

Here's a really cool looking way to do it.

Then there's my way. See what I did?

I would dig up pics of all the other nutmegs, but I don't remember who built them and I'm too lazy. If you're curious, I'm pretty sure Natalya and Zupponn built nutmegs.

I've also been having trouble getting my walking murder coffins built (luckily I have a huge pile of Bohrok to use in the meantime). My latest prototypes have been using legs based of the exo-force sets, and they look promising. The Sentinel and Iron Crusher have decent leg designs to tinker with, but if that doesn't work, technic pieces are usable (though they lose a lot of the general D-nought aesthetic).

I liked dilanski's technique best, tried it myself and even tweaked it a little:

Mine has a little more articulation in the legs.

So that allows forward/backwards swivel, right? Is it actually useful? I'm tring to visualize how it works, (away from my bricks to actually build and test it myself) but I can only see it be marginally beneficial because balancing, given how inherently top-heavy the DN design is. Could you provide some 'epic pose' pics mayhaps?

Damn nice dreadnought, but the back needs to be spiced up a bit.

Oh and Colette has a nice pair of dreadnoughts too.

You need to make a red one, and have one of it's melee weapons be a big jug of kool-aid.
