The Army of Doctor Moreau

From the time he was a child, Dr. Thadeus Moreau XXVII had heard horror stories of his ancient relative's experiments of questionable moral standing. Rather than be repulsed, however, the tales regaled and inspired Thadeus, who dreamed of one day opening an amusement park with living, bio and cyber engineered attractions that would delight and entertain all the children of the world. He made it his life's work to see his dream realized, breaking new ground in the science of engineering living creatures--even some extinct ones. Dr. Moreau was giddy as a grasshopper when opening day for his "Cyber Bio Super Fun World" finally rolled around. Floods of children formicated through the gates, eager to see what wonders lay within the park's oddly incredibly reinforced barbed electric fencing.
Everything was going swimmingly, until, by a tragic twist of Fate's knife, the Universal Predatory Dampener Signal Broadcaster overloaded and fried. The ensuing few minutes of carnage were described by some papers as "A Bath-time of Blood and Mangled Children", "It was as if some disturbed psychopath threw a bunch of horrible science experiments, robots, and children into a blender and switched it to 'high', followed by 'puree', followed by 'high' again, before settling on 'liquefy'," and "Just the worst thing that's ever happened in the world, ever."
The government squashed Thadeus's dreams, despite this very trivial mishap, and refused to hear his pleas for another chance. He sat bereft of hope in the ruins of his former fun land on his island, with only his creations for companions. What else could he do but outfit the already deadly creatures with weapons and turn them into a force to be used for revenge and other nefarious purposes?

Skitter and Slither are two of his earliest, most intelligent creations, and serve as Dr. Moreau's only real "friends". Skitter utilizes his agility and ability to transcend obstacles as a deadly and stealthy scout and close quarters assassin, while Slither moves swiftly across the battlefield to bring enemies in range of his venom launcher, resorting to a poisoned blade when "friends" get too close.

A few of Moreau's general mutant infantry and heavies. (I really want to get some Chima sets just for the minifigs, which would be perfect for Moreau's army.)

A stationary defense gun. Moreau is toying with the idea of making this gun mobile, since he has nothing left to defend but his shattered heart.

Triceratank(TM), patent pending.

The Scorpiosaurus Rex Mark II is the crowning achievement of and testament to the Doctor's bio-mechanical engineering prowess. It is an entirely autonomous killing machine, with armor integrated into its spine with advanced neural input, making it much more intelligent than your average T-rex. The armor it wears has an advanced tactical targeting overlay, enabling S. Rex to multitask in its murderous rampage. Its weapon loadout includes a scythe and buzz-saw arm--great for close combat, but terrible for lighting cigarettes, a shoulder mounted laser cannon, with the option of a rocket launcher on the other shoulder, and a tail mounted high caliber Gatling gun that can easily aim anywhere, or whip around to knock enemies over before slicing them with its enormous bayonet.

Armorless.

[edited to rename Rex as Mark II]

I'm not entirely sure what "NPU" means, but thanks! You probably are seeing it correctly. :)

NPU means nice parts usage. Was the scorpiosaurus rex a reference to the rulebook?

Oh, well thanks a lot! And yeah, that and Warhead's Smoking T-Rex. At least, I think it was Warhead's? Don't quote me on that.

I was so pleased when I tried it to find that it did in fact work perfectly.... if only the tails could fit into the socket pieces though....

It's funny because Doctor Mephesto is a reference to Doctor Moreau.

Nice army dude. Love the triceratops and artillery. Everything else as well.

Thanks er'ybody. It still needs a bit of work, and definitely more infantry units. It's one of three small-ish factions I'm working on right now for a three player introductory Brikwar for a couple of friends here who expressed interest.

I was just brushing up on the 2010 rules, and I completely forgot that there was a Scorpiosaurus Rex (same name and everything) in there! Goodness gracious... I suppose I should re-name mine, or at least make it version 2.0 or something. The only reference I had intended was where I described its clawed arms as terrible at lighting cigarettes. -___-
