I recently caught VOAT fever again after seeing some of Uspez Morbo's new VOATs, particularily his 'Glave' and decided to immerse myself in it's juicy goodness. Here's a slideshow of what I made.
This one's called "Virax" and it's loosely based on a triplane design (triplane spaceships anyone?) Also I'm loving building in this rectilinear style lately. Could it be after two years I'm finally getting my own look/style?
Norus Corporation "Nightjar" snub fighter. there's actually 4 colours used here but hopefully Uspez wont notice :) Must get some more purple bricks...
This one was a dead end. It was supposed to look a little like a hermit crab but it's just too messy and I couldn't be bothered finishing it:
"Happy Camper" part of the "Hell's Satans" outlaw spacegang:
Originally started looking like this but it looked too much like the mechbuster voat I did a while ago so I filpped it over and built it from there.
I liked the Hell's Satans look so much I wanted to do a larger gang member. This one's called "Deliverance" and it's kinda a space tow truck with a tractor beam mounted to capture and steal other ships or supplies. The idea for the ship's structure came from a pair of bookends with the engine as the book amd the cockpit and cannon sandwhiching it together.
More right angles! This one is a Space Police II "Transgalactic Tracker" featuring long range communication packages to track and locate suspects in deep space. Quite a deliberate attempt to build the biggest ship I could (without it turning into a crappy 'rainbow warrior'). I measured it: 49 studs long-not even HALF a SHIP! :( Very hard for me to photograph stuff this size well.
It actually started off looking like this: a spaceship that landed and could be used as a base. It was too ugly so I simplified it and lost the base idea (although I've wanted to build some Blacktron mobile bases for a little while so I may return to it later.)
I made a smaller 'remix' version with gatling cannon:
And this last one is a 'HAZSAL' unit (Hazardous Salvage) to remove materials from toxic environs. Unsure if it's for underwater or space? I would've loved to have used some yellow as the second colour but a few key elements I only had in black.
I think you should do somthing like the "other" shannons "gumbo" itd be sick!
Personally when fustrated for some reason i build better AND THIS GAME MAKES ME FRIKEN FUSTRATED.http://www.members.shaw.ca/gf3/circle-the-cat.html
well any way you deserve an OTC for this:)
completely awesome... You packed so many things into this one it kind of overloaded my mind with greatness. the one thing that I thought could use improvement though was that a lot of the ships looked a little boxy
Nice, Shannon! Great designs all around. I especially like Like the Tracker (both versions), Deliverence, and HAZSAL. Some great parts usage throughout! So I gotta ask, was that a little customized Sharpie work on the tow vehicle?
But you can't use that name for your gang. That's our gangs name. Now you need to eat your jacket... and the hat... and these bumper stickers... I love this stuff ShannO! My fav was probably the gat-gun variant. Just way cool and nicely A-symetrical. Score again for the Shanmeister! ~ Chris.
