The tail fins are baller on that plane.

You seem to have the hang of using colour in lego, and your builds have nice shapes, plenty of pazazz.

Thanks! The fuselage is a little flimsy because of the way the mudguard parts at the back of the cockpit extend into it. But overall I'm pretty happy. I've discovered that tail fin connection on multiple separate occasions, and forgotten it every time.

Mind-controlled vehicles are where it's at.

Thank you, I'd say the same for you. The problem with colour blocking is that it generally becomes easier when you acquire more parts. I've definitely been focusing on form unity for this force though.

45th Union

Sorry for the poor quality, and the weird lighting. I wanted to get some pictures of this stuff before I forgot.

Decided to make a small contingent of RoC77's 45th Union.

Image
Featuring RoC, 3 infantry (one with RPG), officer, scout car with crew, and Secutor tank with driver.

Image
I didn't have any of the exact parts for RoC77's original version, but I kind of like this one better anyway.

Image
I barely had enough parts to make this much infantry.

Image
I don't have a name for this yet. It's smaller than RoC's Rat Jeep, so I'm not sure what I could call it. Mouse? Vole? Anyway, fits a driver and gunner.
This was where the whole thing started. This has been built for a few months, while the rest was built like three days ago.

Doors open, gun lifts up to allow gunner to get in.


Image
Going with the gladiator naming scheme, this is the Secutor. A bit more futuristic looking than other 45th Union tanks, mostly due to parts selection honestly. Armed with a high-powered cannon, a machine gun, and two missile tubes.

Also I'm in love with that sticker on the turret. I want more.

All weapons are articulated.



Let me know what you think! Or don't.

That's some nice and compact shaping. How robust are these vehicles?

Thanks! The car is quite sturdy since the front and back are connected by both the chassis and the rollcage. The tank is a little more mixed, with the back being very sturdy and the front being flimsy as hell. The Core is solid, and the side skirts are secure enough, but not super strong. Finally the turret is surprisingly robust for its shape.

I fucking love the jeep and tank! Holy crap! I need to go in that direction with my (still) WIP faction redesign.

Also Thanks! let me know if you want to know anything about how the car's built.

Those vehicles are so good, I am a big fan of the tank design.

Your smaller vehicles are an impressive display of technical razmataz with their combination of detail and compactness.

The tank is super slick too, I think it's my new favourite realistic-ish hovertank. The lines all over and particularly the turret look futuristic but also very tanky, and the light-dark grey mixing does a great job of making you follow the tank's shape and also stopping it from becoming "just another greybleh tank".

Thanks, guys! Glad you like them.

@ikensall: It's actually not a hovertank, there are treads hidden in there. Unfortunately that means there's no room for a driver, let alone a gunner.

Eh, who cares. If making space for a minifig comprimises the shape or style of it,  then it's not worth it. Only rules sticklers care about it anyway
