From Scythia with love (now with moar pictures)

Postby Apollyon » Thu Jan 02, 2014 8:46 pm

Note: I added less blurry pictures and additional information here (14th jan)

-SYCTHIAN RIGEL KENTAURUS MILITARY CATALOUGES -

- Ground forces of the Great Scythian Empire -

- "SPECTRE" class battle mech -



Image

Image

The SPECTRE's single purpose is to hit the toughest enemy ground targets very hard very fast. For this purpose the
heavily armored battle mech is equipped with a large laser shotgun and a huge plasma broadsword. Additionally it has
an array of MkII missiles to deal with infantry although its armor usually shrugs off infantry attacks. To increase speed
and maneuverability it has jumpjets powered by an antimatter generator its backpack.

The chest armor can swing out reveal the pilot.

It was built using this rather simple technic frame. There are some problems with that. I will elaborate on that later. Still, i am quite pleased with the result considering these humble beginnings.

Wow, that frame turned out well. The finished version reminds me of Gort.

On the one hand? This mecha is awesome - in size, shape and weaponry - When I saw the frame in the bricks forum, I was not expecting this.

And it is awesome.

On the other hand? I am disappointed to see no ball joints. I am not sure how I can accept a mecha into my life if it has no balls. :P :D

Awesome job Apollyon, everything looks right for scythian empire!
I hope you don't mind some critiquing but there is a couple of things that I would change.
To me the legs just don't look right, I would love to see some more articulation in them and the arms.
Also if you could break the color up a little right now its just to red, maybe throwing in a little black, possibly a digital camo pattern.
Anyways awesome work, hope to see this fielded

That is really good... the fact that a minifig fits inside is amazing. Very impressive design.

I sense battletech creations may soon follow with this frame...

I do like, though I fear that I may have to rip up lots of paper in order to keep the thing from becoming wobbly.

Holy shit this is amazing. Possibly the best mech on the forum, considering it looks really sturdy.
