Space Sharks

Postby Alex » Wed Jun 05, 2013 1:13 pm

The space sharks are a company of ruthless mercenaries who will take any job and fight any enemy, as long as the pay is good enough. I've posted this army before, but I've recently updated them.
Here is the Hammerhead Assault Shuttle, the heavily armed and armored dropship used by the space sharks in their missions. It was essentially a heavily modified cargo ship.
This is the Hammerhead MkII, which has been redesigned to look sleeker and more predatory, in effect more sharklike. The space sharks also decided that while hidden weapons compartments were cool and all, they didn't serve much practical purpose for a mercenary company that always went in guns blazing. This shark bares its teeth, 20 missiles and a quad-barrelled turret to be exact, to intimidate its prey.
The ship has a pilot and a gunner, both of whom have laser SMGs with buzzsaw attachments.
Like the MkI, the Hammerhead Mk II has a large door in the back to allow for rapid disembarkment.
Unlike the Mk I however, the MkII has the cockpit and troop bay separated by a removable window.
Another feature of the MkII is fully retractable landing gear.
The leader of the Space Sharks, Captain Jaws, is back with a vengence. His has an HMG with an OTC bayonet
Here he is with the rest of the company, who are armed with laser rifles with chainsaw bayonets, chainsaw flamethrowers and a laser sniper rifle. Where there's blood in the water, the sharks will come!

The faction sorely needs a shark-figurehead of some kind. A guy I brik-warred with once built and ossum assault fighter that was piloted by a psychik shark. Or perhaps a Dr. Sharkhead variant. In short, it would be quite thematic to add "real" sharks.

I was expecting actual space sharks. This is slightly disappointing.

It is really cool, though.

You build some bad-ass gunships.  Although I do miss the Jedi Starfighter flaps from the larger version.

Dropship:   :D  :D  :D  :D   out of 5
Fully retractable landing gear and overall sleek design are my main reasons for liking this. Only reason it's not a full 5 is that the quad turret looks a little odd to me.

Infantry:  :D  :D  :D  :)  out of 5
The chainsaws on EVERYTHING is fantastic, and the design of the minifigs is nice. I'm a bit underwhelmed by the buzz saw SMGs, but that might just be a matter of taste.

Final Score:  :D  :D  :D  :D  :)  out of 5
I had to give you extra points because of how uniform and professional they look together. The Space Sharks look like they will go far and kill anything that gets in their way (or just happens to be there when they get bored  :wink: ).

The yellow, black and OT look great together. Crew looks great too. Well done.

I like this.  Like Aqua Zone, except like the Aqua Sharks, except cooler, except in space.

The space shark is 20% cooler than the aquasharks.
