Y'know Strana, your post quality is (almost) as bad as J+B's. Please try to make them a bit more comprehensible next time.

I suppose the reason you're not hated by the forum members, myself included, is:

6. You're not a douche.
7. You never post meaningless single-word comments.
8. You never post about MOCs that you never build.
9. The Caid Sector has produced the most epic (if not so coherent) battle-reports in recent memory.
10. The Hodgepodge is one BAMF ship.

The VOL will one day swell our ranks, if they may prove worthy warriors.

Interestingly enough, in the past the Immortals have amalgamated many different parts of conquered enemy cultures to their own and have in many occasions Immortalised some of their greatest enemies. Not as a bribe but as a salute to their spirit and abilities.

as for the joints although they came from bionikle tech they are now mostly mated to the basic lego system, see the mining mech from the latest line o tunnelers

I don't know why, but this reminds me of metal slug.

They're pilot torsos I believe. From Naboo fighters.

Not exactly sure, but from my formations, I have 36+ of the greman soldier torso's. And 39+ of the naboo fighter torso's.... The Naboo ones were from the Lego store's build your own minifig pile. You get 5 pieces & build a minifig, but instead I get kept getting just 5 sets of torso's. Oh, and that's how I got all those than cargo pants too.....

Silent-sigfig asked for some build shots for the Maiden, here's some detailed breakdown pics I took, apologies for the low quality pics, still stuck using my camera phone.

Hmmm.... I just noticed I am missing a round 1x1 piece...

This is like the 3rd version of the back I did.
Image

Image

Image

Redid the lower leg from the previous model, its bulkier & has a larger footprint for balance.
Image

Since the piece I used was a bit unique, this is the alternate I came up with if anyone wants to try to build one.
