After nearly half a year accumulating dust in a corner of my shelf, I present to you guys the dreaded Juggerbunny MK.II, inspired by Shaun Sullivan's original Juggerbunny featured at NELUG's "T.E.A.M. Rebirth" and also present in the holy rulebook.
I've wanted to build something like this for quite awhile, basically since I first gazed into the rulebook. I knew a better version of the JB had to be made, the combination of bunny and nightmare-ish killing machine sounded totally Brikwarsy to me. It is also a test subject for my WIP Juggernaut trait.LoreThe Juggerbunny has been seen on Hellius twice. It stands as one of the most terrifying Hellions to ever step out of the Summoning Portals. Nearly every race on Hellius fears the hunchbacked monstrosity, even some Metal Warriors.
During the Jugger Summonings in Hellius, a hundred kinds of horrible demons, known as Hellions, were mysteriously brought to the planet via ancient portals that lead to an unknown dimension. Being one of the planet's darkest times, a long and bloody war was conducted on the rampaging demons that were annihilating everything in their path. Among the countless death's, many Metal Warrior clans met their fate at the hands of the wicked creatures.
It is speculated, thanks to some archaeological findings and elder knowledge, that the Hellions are the ancestral nemesis of the Keepers, the supposed victors and remnants of the God War. The Hellions would be struck down into that dark universe and be eternally imprisoned there. But something went wrong and they were set free by some suspicious cults that roam Hellius in search for primordial evils to be released.
The Juggerbunny, like all the Hellions, has a specific role in their quest for senseless destruction. It harvests and stores souls for later use depending on it's overlord's desire. To be caught in the JB's dark cage is a terrible fate, but it doesn't end there. Souls are not just stored but also used in a never ending process of absolute torture and anguish, fueling the beast/machine, making it a true ambulant Hell.
In his quest of acquiring Rage, BFenix battled a dormant Juggerbunny guarding the ancient weapon for days, fortunately, the blade proved powerful enough to defeat the Hellion's unreal metal which it was built of. He in a gesture of irony, he trapped the Hellion's soul into a Keeper built PA called Thermion: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=7277 Later, MAOX found a way to retrieve, convert and replicate some of the atoms constituting the JB's limbs, developing a new, highly resilient type of armor. The project is being held as one of the MAOX's Top Secret, emerging rumors that it might just be the greatest armor ever made.
Here's a back shot. I used my old spine design from the HK33 drone. Probably going to use it again with a few tweaks.
The JB packs two lesser retractable claws to capture or help the victims being nom'ed by its huge teeth, getting ripped apart more easily.
It's long, powerful arms and hands allow the JB to pop minifigs like balloons into a mist of blood and gore. It can also easily break through walls and crush armored foes. It also features two double-barreled Hell Guns of immense power, constantly rotating and scanning for new targets.
Although the legs came out alright, the feet design gives it horrible balance issues which I had to counter with a steel wrench for weight.NOTE
: One more thing I'd like to share. I built this in a very difficult and troublesome phase of my life, so I somehow hate this MOC, being it some sort or embodiment of those dark times. I'll trash it when I host a forum battle and build something else out of it.
Well, that's it. Pretty nasty isn't it?
