So, now we're more than 20, and this calls for our 1st contest.
Build a quad Biomech using a mix of System and Bionicle
1- your mech must be a mass-production BioMech requiring a simple human pilot (so no paranormal/supertechnologial skills).
2-it must have 4 legs and 2 to 4 arms.
3-it must be designed to work in formations: no weapons of mass destruction.
4- Basic armament must include at least: 1 anti-infantry weapon, 1 anti-mech weapon, 1 anti-air weapon.
5- your mech must feature a completely new weapon designed by you. It must fit the AG universe's technolgy/physics and be believable for a mass production model. Please include a description of it and how it works. The wapon you design can be one of the 3 seen in point #4
6- its color theme can range from 2 to 4 colors.
7- you must post at least 1 good picture of it on a clan background.
The winner will be included in the Official AG chronology, its weapon will be included in the official AG technology and the winner will be promoted to Moderator.
The winning BioMech may also become the new group's icon. Permalink
I tried to make a mech-platform with 4 legs but at end when it was 80% finished it looks so curious that i added a colourful cube and now it's a Mysterion :(.
Currently, another Maox battle-car is nearly finished, which also works as mech but i haven't a good idea for a special weapon :(.
If there's time, i'll start a new try after my space station is finished. Must the legs be technic/bionicle or can i build them massive lego? I wouldn't like to destroy my Maoxcars yet so i don't have many "bio"-parts left, maybe in another colour. Permalink
Yuri, I have a mech that I think would perfect for this contest. As soon as I get it posted, give it a look and let me know if it qualifies by your standards (I'm not sure if it will since it technically has 4 primary legs, 4 secondary legs and 2 clawed arms. I built it during my off period). By the way is there a deadline for this and have I already missed it? Either way I still intend to show this beast at some level! One last question, what is a "clan background?" You listed this on point 7. Permalink
Alright Yuri, I finally got it posted. My proposal for the Quad Mech Contest. Technically I built it before I knew about the contest but I hope you like it anyway. Its the Whip Scorpion and I think it fits nicely with ArcheoGenis. Permalink
Yuri, I think you should reopen the contest and let everyone know who's interested in competing. I can only imagine how busy you have been lately so maybe give all interested parties another 2 or 3 weeks to get something up. I think the one modification to the rules should say "at least 4 legs." Otherwise, I can pull mine out of the contest to be fair and settle with an "honorable mention" if you wish. Permalink

I agree and disagree. Reopening the contest is a good idea, but I think the 4 leg part is unnecessary. Quads are REALLY hard. Permalink
Yuri, tell you what. I can be a judge if you prefer. That way there will be no one saying my mech isn't playing by the rules or I'm getting special treatment. Let me know what you think one way or another. I'll stand by your decision. Permalink
As far as I know, both of our MOC's are still in since the contest never officially began in the first place. We'll just have to wait and see how Yuri wants to handle it. He might be waiting to get more entries or maybe he may not have the time to do it at this second. Permalink
