"JackRabbit" Heavy Tank [MegaBloks] Feb 1 Update!

Postby CmdrRook » Tue Dec 30, 2014 3:30 pm

OP spoiled because it's out-dated. Made a small update to the design with which I would not be ashamed to field this unit.

d6Ra / d6Rd d6G d6B d6Y I'm satisfied with this stat-line, as it suits its role as a hutching tank more accurately. As is clear, it takes its design cues mainly from modern tanks and self-propelled guns.

Spoiler: show
Veloci-Tek has released its first prototype for a heavy land vehicle, the JackRabbit Tank, seen here configured as a self-propelled artillery and mobile command center.

This project started as a way to implement the "Drone Attack" CoD set's treads in a believably 7p vehicle. Whether it was successful or not is for y'all to decide. A pretty basic Stud-on-Top build for the most part, the turret was the most challenging to keep from being too bulky or restrictive for the gun. Stole the resulting design roughly from my Macaque Assault Frame.

The little bit of armor over the treads is a nice touch.

As someone who recently tried to make a tank, I like it!
Although your dice there are bugging me, that's an illegal loadout (you have 5 systems) :p
But yes, it looks very good; I enjoy the side skirts and how it seems to fit the scale rather well, how it's simple and get's the job done. Also the camo parts fits well.

Right you are, and I seemed to have missed it. To resolve it, I'd probably drop the skirts and the armor, or take off one of the odds and ends I stuck on for a sensor die.

Thanks for the kind words. Definitely not getting a whole company out of this recent acquisition and wondering where to go next. Some of the other MB sets have interesting prospects, but I think I need to pad out my Lego options, first...
