Monolith Imperiya: Bogatyr Heavy Mech

Post by Kastrenzo » Fri Sep 27, 2019 5:17 pm

Last year I experimented with the idea of Mechs. While I wasn't all that enthusiatic about it, I did produce a "Power armor suit" on Minifig scale. Called it the "Svarog Suit"

Falk showed me an LDD of a Mech frame someone had produced, and after a few weeks of waiting and several hours of trying to find parts I'd forgotten. I've produced my first proper Mech. I thought a while about who to give it to, despite the army already being huge, I figured I was most experienced and comfortable working with the white and black of the Imperiya.

Introducing the Bogatyr
Lighting was a little shitty, it was dark today and my lamps were bleeding a lot of light into photo so I tried to adjust.

Something I made up on a whim, didnt turn out how I hoped but it was pretty cheap. I had the insignia of the Imperiya put onto a custom sticker site and got myself a sheet of about 100 of them. The orange stripes are a little hard to notice. But it's different!

Clamping mechanisms to support the Mech's frame and lock down when firing.

A number of tools and a backup weapon, for survivability of both the Mech and it's pilot

While different weapons are planned. The first weapon to be produced for the Bogatyr is a modified variant of the "Duster" which is a weapon used on fighters! A twin barreled rapid energy cannon that can splatter minifigs and pummel vehicles

Extra ammunition canisters are carried on patrols

Reloading is difficult for such a bulky frame. How do they do it? No one knows, Magnets?
Fkin Magnets. how do they work?!

Situated on the midsection are two scary red spotting lights

While not reccomended. Some pilots will opt to take the protective shield off the head of their Mech. Bogatyr Pilots already wear heavily armored helmets and a sturdy yet manuverable armor to protect against combat as well as the elements like cold

When exiting or entering, the body opens up to allow the pilot to get in and out, as well as for maintenance and repairs

A well guarded secret.. is that Bogatyr pilots use booster seats!

Complete with buttwarmers.
