keep in mind that these are pretty much all WIPs. I was messing around last night on LDD. I have been playing Dishonored, which is a fantastic stealth game btw. So i figured why not try to make some. So without further ado, i present to you the tallboys ,as well as the main character, of Dunwall.
About this creation
The protagonist of Dishonored is Corvo Attano. He served as Lord Protector to the Empress of Dunwall. He was then hung out to dry when a group of assassins murdered the Empress and kidnapped her daughter. Corvo sets out for revenge against his conspirators.
Corvo's main weapon is a retractable blade. Though it may be small, in Corvo's hand, it is extremely deadly. Whether he needs disposing of a lone guard or 5 City Watch, it is his go-to weapon.
Perhaps the most difficult enemies to kill in Dishonored, tallboys serve as overwatch for the city of Dunwall. Armed with compound bows that fire explosive tipped arrows, these guys on mechanical stilts are very dangerous, even when there is only one of them.
Even though they seem daunting. they do have weaknesses. On their backs are whale oil tanks, used to power their stilts. destroy those with your own crossbow, and they will come crumpling down.
I tried to recreate one of the shots in the trailer. It didnt turn out so great but whatever. It may seem that Corvo is outgunned, but Corvo is equipped with powers from a being known as the outsider. He can stop time to quickly dispatch of enemies, or he can blink over great distances. Even though he mainly uses his sword, his powers are just as effective.
one of the guards of Dunwall, he patrols the streets that are riddled with infection. Each member of the City Watch is equipped with a sword and a pistol. A unique method of carrying their pistol, it is clipped onto their strap that runs across their torso. They may not seem as horrifying as tallboys, but in big groups, they can give any experience player a run for their money.
A shot of the whole gang. I do plan on making these for real, because they just look so awesome. I wish that i could make the stilts a little more lanky, but due to the sheer mechanics of lego pieces, they need to be this way. Or if you have any suggestions, let me know. (dont worry you will be accredited)
Lastly, a shot of Corvo summoning a swarm of rats to overtake some City Watch. Now, at first you may think "Eh... what can a bunch of rats do?" That is where you are wrong. It is... gruesome to say the least. They can reduce a guard to nothing in only a matter of seconds. but beware, they can turn on you if there is no guard around them to eat.
UPDATE as of January 12th 2013
Changed the design of their legs a little bit. Not sure of the strength but the visual looks better then before, more lanky and closer to in-game model.
Well, there you have it. Dishonored is an awesome game. Great stealth, fantastic action, and a thrilling story. Corvo is a cool dude who does all his work in silence, crumbling the very foundations of the tyranny that asserts itself after he is framed. Even though he does everything for the best of intentions, he is all business when it comes to ridding the streets of his enemies. I highly recommend this game for it is a marvelous story of revenge.
Dont forget to comment and let me know how i did. ALSO, i do plan on making some decals for mainly Corvo as well detailing the other characters with some custom weapons and whatnot, so be on the lookout. I will try to have them soon. ;)
