Project: Reeve pics

Post by Elmagnifico » Thu Apr 23, 2009 5:16 pm

Seeing as how the Bricks forum has currently gone to the dogs, quite literally, I have decided to intervene with some pictures of the stuff I've made for Project Reeve, starting with Copenhagen.

Image

A Peripatetiopolis-eye view of the Traction City of Copenhagen.

Image

An airship's view

Image

The back, less armored but still defended with a light cannon.

Image

Tier 3. The lower tiers are behind the armor. The upright plate in the middle is a bridge set up for boarding walls with.

Image

Tier 3 with the bridge down.

Image

An Anti-Stalker trooper and a Mayorial Guard.

Image

A view of some of the city's heavier artillery, a rocket rack and a howitzer turret. Next to the rocket rack is another Anti-Stalker trooper.

Image

The other side of the tower. Here, you can see an AA battery and a two-gun antipersonnel turret.

Image

This guy's the Captain of the Guard. Behind him are two more guards, armed with their signature axe-rifles

Image

That's tier two-and-a-half, where the navigation deck has been moved.

Image

A view inside, the guy on the left is a captured Red Eagle who has seen the other side of White Pass, which is where he is being forced to guide them. The guy on the right is a Navigator guard, keeping the pirate in line by threatening the one thing he values more than his life: His manhood.

Image

A closer view of the rear gun.

Image

The last sight Peripatetiopolisians had as a free city: The jaws of Copenhagen.

every pic other than the last one was the same -.-
i see you like the mortal engines quartet.
EDIT:its not much of a traction "city" its a bit small really since the traction citys where they took the city and built a giant frame and then build houses/put houses on it for people to live in, for the citys to survive they needed to "eat" each other, this one doesn't seem up to even "eating" a scavenger town, its gut must be very small, you have got to remember that the gut will contain parts of enougher city after its eaten so it has to be big and the tiers have to be bigger to house the houses, basically traction citys should be as big as your lego town but multi layerd.

Yeah, but build one better than this, and then I'll respect that. I'd loved to have made this thing bigger, but I have another suburb to build as well as Batmunkh Gompa and an airship fleet. This is as big as I could afford to make it without destroying all my brother's creations too.

Plus, there are 'vegetarian' cities that only eat Static settlements, who fought the Green Storm as part of the Tracktiongellenschaft(?). That's what Copenhagen is supposed to be.

with the size of the citys and the amount of space they use (they chase for days in the books) you might what to turn it into lots of micro scale ones, not too small but not too big, between nenescale and microscale, where 1 stud is about 1/4 mile, thats about micro scale but not quite since the micro scale ships are many miles long and are about 6 studs long, don't forget that they drive cars inside the citys as well!, traction citys are pain in the arse to make to the book, i might make a scavenger town/platform.

Fantastic! I love the fact you took something you've seen pictures of and read about and have made your own version. Ok, so it's small but I'm thinking that much bigger and it would start becoming very fragile and hard to transport without severe damage... this puppy looks like it was made to be played with. Fantastic! Looking forward to reading the BatRep... what do the Stalkers look like?.. are they Scout units?

Not necessarily, you and lrdofbricks have some flexibility, you can each ally with the League or Copenhagen. I would ask, though, in the interests of keeping this a relatively fair game, that you choose different sides.

EDIT:

The stalkers are going to look something like this.

Image

Infantry Stalkers-Similar to Dr. Popjoy's, only minus the weak necks. All four are armed with laser rifles.

Image

A Stalker Tech-Just like the Medik, except with the proper facilities (onboard Clydeside), it can make new stalkers out of suitable material.

Image

Stalker Hess and her two bodyguards, one armed with a heavy bolter, and the other with a Shardgun

Image

Stalker Hess and one of her Stalker Bats.

Image

Hess with drawn claws

Image

yup, and you'll get a nice suburb too, just need to find time to upload the pics...

Anyway, to whet your apetites some more, here's a few pics of some hardsuits I made, General Toryu's Iron Samurai armor, and a Stalker Brute.

Image

Stalker Brute flexing his steel muscles.

Image

Stalker Brute's railgun

Image

Holding it in an imposing pose.

Image

General Toryu and his Iron Samurai suit.

Image

This is what I picture General Naga looked like, except he had green hair in a warrior's knot and more of a beard.

Image

Showoff.
