Goshawk mark III, pursuit tank and more! AN army update!

Postby fredde » Sun Jul 31, 2011 2:57 pm

Image
So after a long period of inactivity im back on the forum! And with me I bring an army update for my beloved faction.
Image
First up is the Goshawk mark III
Image
there are currently only two variants the standard one and the support variant but I plan to make at least 2 more. a transforming goshawk and a command variant.
Image
These are the standard goshawk mark III`s they are just like most units in the AN jumpjet capable and endowed with sapient minds capable of extremely fast thought.
Image
The standards and the support variant are both equipped with integrated weaponry in this case the weaponry in question is infinite repeaters  integrated in the arms of the mechs and firing through its "palm".
Image
As you can see the mark III is not much taller than the average minifig this was intentional in order to help with urban combat.
Image
This was supposed to be animated but photoshop screwed up and this is the best frame of the animation :(
Image
Here is a front and back view of the mark III.
Image
Here is a snapshot from the invasion of baseplatia 2 with the mark III`s skimming along the path to a stronghold,notice the LAMP tank following closely behind them.
Image
the support variant is armed with a pair of heavy AT missile launchers.
Image
all three goshawks fit snugly in the rear hold of the Tigershark SHDT.
Image
Just to prove the hatch closes and totally not to show of the top of the Tigershark :D .
Image
The goshawks can easily slide out of the hold with help of magnetized rails.
Image
I like this photo i might try to make a poster of it.
Image
a comparison between the Tigershark and the goshawks ( I will take more photos of the Tigershark when i figure out why my photos get so washed out.

Image
yes those are crane arms with chainsaws on its end,yes they do fold out ,and yes they are intended for close combat.
Image
Here is a WIP spec ops version which is smaller but still carries the same armor and weaponry.

Pursuit tank!
Image
And that brings us to our secon point of this update.
Image
The pursuit tank which is intended for pursuing vehicles harassing convoys and providing heavy support for infantry.
Image
It was inspired quite a bit by the fallout sentry robot ,and yes all wheels do turn.
Image
showing of its magnificent  posture or weaponry which consists of two heavy infinite repeaters and two grenade lauchers.
Image
Altough it has jumpjets they are mostly used to cushion the inevitable jump onto terrified enemies.
Image
Oh shit oh shit oh shit

stop your vehicle! you have 0,5 seconds to comply!
Image
Heres all the minemecha I have currently. 3 Goshawk mark II and 3 Goshawk mark III a strider riot walker and a pursuit tank(complete with ed-209 levels of trigger discipline)

Silver fish LICH

Image
Here is a silver fish LICH (Light Infantry Carrying Vehicle)
Image
Its a jeep basically armed with a light pulse laser and a few soldiers.
Image
Danger commentary banks critical! danger! Will Robinson danger!
Image
The guy with the flame decorated helmet carries a single use rocket launcher.
Image
The AN isn't really big on pssenger safety as you can see.....
Image
Heres the bumper perfect for smashing barricades and small woodland animals.

Thats all folks! comments and criticism is appreciated!
and don't worry I will take more photos and make a separate post for the Tigershark once my camera stops screwing around.[/i]

Welcome back, it's been a while!  

I love the new Goshawks, but they look kinda plain when they're not holding weaponry.  Do you still have any of the guns you made for the previous versions?  

The pursuit tank is amazing.  I like the low, menacing profile.

Is it just me, or has the SHDT undergone a few updates?  The armament looks a bit different from when I last saw it.

Thanks
I do have a few weapons left and I will try them out.

The SHDT has been completely rebuilt (the first one looked a little off from any angle but forward and was incredibly fragile.)

im glad you like them! :D

I love your builds for a few reasons:

- Color scheme is smooth
- You manage to work these odd angular lines out of bricks and plates that are typically straight and square angles..... what I mean is I look at your stuff and have to think "how the hell did he do that ?!"
