War Tortoise

Postby MicVash » Thu May 12, 2011 1:37 pm

For all the fantasy builders out there -- a heavy support option.

""Great War Tortoise:

Walking medieval tanks. It takes a giant turtle to haul rudimentary cannons into battle, and survive the kickback. Not to mention being able to chomp a knight in half, they are virtually impervious to attack.""

And suddenly, old memories of playing Runescape as a young'n start flooding back. I mean, not that this was inspired by the tortoises in that game or anything. This just makes me realize how Brikwarsy some of the things in it were.

Anyways, those two are epic builders anyways, but this takes the cake.

If I had the Rascus foot and visor piece, I would re-create that in a heartbeat. That and if I actually built fantasy stuff.

Why limit yourself?  This could easily be modified for space ventures.

Wait what?! In what way? Just look at the manner in which they fight and die.

What I meant were some of the creatures and things. If they were made in LEGO form, they'd fit right in with the armies of Medivo. Of course, I lost all respect for the game years ago, and the mob design is the only thing decent about it.
