[SP] Steampunk'd Triceratank

Post by Guest on Wed Feb 29, 2012 4:24 pm

The year is 1000 AD, mechanics are slowly discovering how to use steam to power their engines and weapons for a stronger power than the rest of the world. What better way to move these crazy contraptions around, other than on a dinosaur? So, the work began. At first they were unsure they could even discover a way to bring one back to life, yet after 10 years of intense studies and long dedicated hours they were finally able to bring to life a Triceratops. This was the first step towards a new military that would soon dominate the world.

Without further ado, the pictures! Wow this thing looks

List of Brickarms used:
2 Bronze Miniguns
2 Gunmetal Miniguns
2 Rusty Cimmerian Pickaxes
2 Golden Gunblades

2 Bronze Machetes

And for those who like to know the little details and such, I scrapped and rebuilt this thing about 5 times to bring you the best i can. Wow this thing looks

Enjoy!

I saw this on the BAF. Interesting combinations you've got there. I like what you did with the miniguns. It does seem that's too much going on though and some parts don't fit well.

Very nice MOC, but this was 1000 AD:


(Or for you
)

Anyway, NPU of the gold mini-gun Smile

Thank you guys!

Also, the whole goal of Steampunk is revising history, it is sci-fi creations, in pre-medieval times.

I thought steampunk referred more to highly advanced steam powered machines around the time when steam power was popular.

Very cool! I love the concept and the color-scheme. When greebling, think of function though. There are a lot of greebles that look like they are there to serve as details, but what function or purpose they serve is confusing. I'm not saying EVERYthing needs to serve a function, but if the mechanics and workings of the machine made at least somewhat logical sense, that would step this up to the next level!

Yeah, sadly, as the entire thing is moved by the triceratop, there isn't a whole lot of stuff that could be steam powered, however, I tried to make it still look filled-in, for example in the crates I tried to make it look like there was stuff stored in them, etc.
But overall, it did need a bit more work.
Thank you!
