Octuptarra Combat Tri-Droid

Post by Sialboats on Sun Aug 17, 2008 1:38 am

Modeled after the bulbous headed, eight eyed animals native to Skako, the Octuptarra is a highly advanced assault droid. Coming in various sizes, they can preform roles anywhere from infantry support to biological warfare, to artillery platform.

The one in question, is the larger artillery variant. Inside the head is a chain-feeding magazine, providing the smooth bore cannons the ammunition they need to lay into Republic Forces. Photo-receptors on each of the rotating cannons allow for a constant view of the enemy forces. The artillery piece also has the ability to traverse unstable terrain, and scale cliffs, making it able to access areas denied to conventional armored vehicles.


Scale View.

Full View.



Limited in my pieces Mad , again, so bear with me!

  • I tried really hard to bulk up those legs, and get the proper shape to them (clicky for legs) .
  • Went for the eyes on the model that saw action in the Mygeetto Theater (clicky for eyes).
  • Greebled (that is the correct term for detail-work, right?) the rest of the legs because I had bad dreams about seeing those bare studs staring back at me ( Shocked ) .
  • Found the Tri-Fighter core to be cliche in the building of these models. So I went with a wheel.


Overall, Iím pleased with her. But I need me some opinions Smile .

And, yeah, Iíve been dealing with some pretty bad lighting lately. Not to mention this thing is nearly impossible to focus on, it being as tall as it is. So mind the pictures, Iíll try to take better ones later.

Wow, that's a lot better than mine! The head should be a lot more spherical though. Still, great job!

You can only delete posts if yours is the latest post in the topic; hence, you can only delete topics if no one has posted in the topic yet. A word of advice... Smile

Huh? :scratch:

I think that was an admin/mod doing that and he asked the question becuase he wanted to know should he make the mistake in the future. A toast!
