Reefshield Mobile Artillery Firebase (Stormsurge conversion)

Post#1 » Feb 04 2016 05:48

So here's that Stormsurge conversion I was talking about earlier, which actually turned out better than expected. I present the Reefshield Mobile Artillery Firebase, designed as a heavy weapons emplacement with antigrav manoeuvring capability. Apologies for the grainy pic, I'll probably upload better ones once I touch it up and commence painting.

I'll hopefully put some up in the near future, for now I'll be fine with some appraisal of the basic shape and concept. :)

So far, so Greater Good R.D. :P

I'm liking the concept and it puts me in mind of Ghost in the Shell and Dominion Tank Police to start. More images would be nice when you have the time. :)

More/better pics, as promised. Some things will be touched up with green stuff where necessary. I even added a little hatch for one of the pilots. :)

Looks interesting. Kinda reminds me of Face Huggers from Half Life.
I would however like to see a horizontal pic. from the side if possible as I am Intrigued how the legs are done.

Heh--the legs are basically meant to be fused together as a forward part of the platform, sort of. I was going for a Siege Tank sort of look. :)

Any more thoughts from anyone?

I'd be interested on a side by side between this and a devilish - the shape isn't that far off - perhaps a second one could be built up from a devilish chassis for simplicity.

Eh...it's considerably bulkier than a Devilfish to say the least.

I dig it!
That's some crafty earth caste engineering right there!

I would like more pictures to get a better 360-degree idea on how you built it and what it looks like from more angles.

If I ever get one I will very likely build it like this since I don't really like the original design.
Better kill it fast before it lays eggs.
