Command & Conquer MOC’s

25 posts in this topic

I’m not quite sure what forum would suit this best, but since military MOC’s usually end up here I’ll try to post it here.

My brother is also a big LEGO enthusiast, but he doesn’t want a profile of his own, so I’ll let him borrow mine for this one.

I am a fan of the Command & Conquer in its various incarnations. I got into the series late, as the first time I really got into the series was with the First Decade pack (and CnC 3), but even with their age it was apparent to me that these were quality games. Since I’m also a fan of LEGO, it seemed like a good idea to build something from the games, and I picked the Tiberium series for various reasons.

One of the classics of the Brotherhood of Nod’s arsenal is the Recon bike/Attack bike/Attack cycle, so it was obvious that had to be built:

img1288js.jpg

I chose the version from Tiberium Wars, as that was what I had the best parts for:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Attack_bike

They are pretty simple, and the driver is just made from standard parts.

Additional pictures:

Another classic Nod vehicle is the buggy:

img1279mn.jpg

This version is from CnC Renegade (kind of and oddball in the series):

http://www.renegadecommunity.com/buggy.php

I mostly chose this version because I thought it looked neat. There is room for a driver in it, barely.

Additional pictures:

http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/5791/img1282t.jpg

http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/7722/img1283yv.jpg

My next creation is the stealth tank:

img1284o.jpg

Long considered the epitome of Nod technology, this version is from Tiberian Sun:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Stealth_tank_(Tiberian_Sun)

This was easier to build than any other version of the tank as it has wheels, not threads. The “arms” are movable normally, but kinda floppy, so it has some problems with collapsing, unless one sticks a couple of plates under them.

Additional pictures:

http://img440.imageshack.us/img440/763/img1287wc.jpg

The next vehicle is not a classic however:

img1295xa.jpg

The Scorpion tank from Tiberium Wars:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Scorpion_tank_(Tiberium_Wars)

It has an interesting shape to say the least, which also made it an interesting build. I also outfitted it with one of the available upgrades, the laser capacitator:

http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/9782/img1297p.jpg

But I haven’t built the dozer blade yet.

Additional pictures:

Next up is lots of infantry:

img1304rb.jpg

http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/6643/img1307es.jpg

The standard infantry from Tiberian Sun and their Rocket trooper counterparts, all wearing Nod combat armor:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Combat_armor

They are rather useful, as the also show up in Kane’s Wrath.

More infantry:

img1298wr.jpg

http://img856.imageshack.us/img856/9760/img1301qf.jpg

These hoodlums are from Tiberium Wars, and serves as standard infantry and rocket troopers respectively:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Militants

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Militant_rocket_squad

Next is the infantry from Renegade:

img1302u.jpg

http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/6190/img1303.jpg

Two Nod soldiers, an officer and a flamethrower trooper.

Additionally from Renegade:

img1308aa.jpg

http://img441.imageshack.us/img441/6455/img1310nq.jpg

Here we have a Black Hand heavy trooper, two Black Hand snipers, General Gideon Raveshaw (or Peewee as Havoc calls him) and Carlos Mendoza:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Gideon_Raveshaw

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Mendoza

Now that we are talking about Renegade:

img1312r.jpg

http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/705/img1314s.jpg

Here we have Nick “Havoc” Parker, commando and the main character of CnC Renegade:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Nick_Seymour_Parker

Now we enter the Nod high command:

img1315pt.jpg

This is Seth, From god, to Kane, to Seth. Your very first commanding officer from Tiberian Dawn:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Seth

img1317cdy.jpg

Sadly for Seth, power shifts quickly in the Brotherhood. I don’t think I need to introduce him, but this is Kane, supreme leader of Nod, and the Messiah.

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Kane

And now for one final unit of the two armed and bipedal variety:

img1318ph.jpg

The Nod Avatar Warmech:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Avatar_(Tiberium_Wars)

It has quite the number of articulated joints, which makes it pretty movable, but a little difficult to stand up.

Additional pictures:

http://img189.imageshack.us/img189/156/img1323sl.jpg

Any suggestions for improvement are appreciated.

Nice work! Hope to see you keep going with this project. Especially like the infantry :thumbup:

Do you have any plans to build a diorama/landscape for your armies?

Superb MOCs! While I've never been a big fan of the series, I've found Kane to be the most interesting main character among all RTS games. (Eat this, Kerrigan)

I hadn’t really planned to make any dioramas, but maybe I’ll throw together some bombed out buildings at some point.

Well, time for more infantry:

img1350qa.jpg

http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/1469/img1352e.jpg

A few more Nod troops from Renegade. Here we have the Nod rocket soldier, and the Black Hand stealth trooper.

http://www.renegadecommunity.com/stealth_soldier.php

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Rocket_soldier_(Renegade)

Now we turn to the Global Defense Initiative:

img1354ir.jpg

http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/5459/img1358g.jpg

Here we have some assorted GDI infantry from Tiberian Sun. From left to right we have the medic, Jump jet infantry, a disc thrower, and two light infantry. All of them are wearing GDI combat uniforms:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/GDI_combat_uniform_(Tiberian_Sun)

More GDI infantry:

img1363q.jpg

http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/7619/img1366st.jpg

Here we have some GDI riflemen and missile soldiers from Tiberium Wars. All of them are wear composite armor:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Rifleman_squad

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Missile_squad

Now, I’ve got a present for ya!

img1361ai.jpg

http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/5071/img1362h.jpg

Commandos, both GDI and Nod, from Tiberium Wars:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Commando_(GDI)

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Commando_(Nod)

Now for some heavier infantry:

img1368n.jpg

The GDI wolverine, from Tiberian Sun:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Wolverine_(original)

It is a bit of a mixture between ingame and cutscene look, as it oddly enough has normal knees ingame, but inverted knees in cutscenes. It might be a bit big, but there is a reason for that, as it is actually capable of having a driver inside it.

Additional pictures:

http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/6981/img1369v.jpg

http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/4177/img1370cw.jpg

Now for something absolutely essential to any base:

img1372gn.jpg

The tiberium harvester, from Tiberian Sun:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Harvester_(Tiberian_Sun)

It might not be the most glamorous vehicle, but you can’t build CnC without building a harvester at some point, after all, tiberium is the cause of, and solution to all life’s problems in CnC. Also it has it’s uses:

img1380a.jpg

It harvests tiberium, naturally, but:

img1382ji.jpg

It is also very capable of ending an ill-conceived infantry attack.

Interesting creations 'Runamuck', though mecha's using go in the sci-fi forum.....things from WWI, WWII, etc., or based around 20th Century warfare goes here....but hey, I'm no moderator for this area so go with the flow. :wink:

Neat custom figures too.....I like them ! :wink:

Nice stuff there. I really like your Harvester. Do you have plans for building a Mammoth Tank?

Some time ago i tried it the other way around. Turning Lego into Command & Conquer. >click<

Yes you may be right that this should rather go to the sci-fi forum. I couldn’t make up my mind on where to post it. It’s from a video game, so that would make it a licensed theme; expect that it isn’t officially licensed. It could go in sci-fi as all of the games have sci-fi elements, but the first game has realistic military equipment like Humvees, Bradlees and Abrams. It could go in other theme because that is where military vehicles usually go, but my brother hasn’t actually built any of the realistic vehicles yet. Maybe I should ask for a move.

We are thinking about the Mammoth tank as it is pretty much the definitive signature of CnC (be it named Mammoth, Apocalypse, Overlord or even Devastator, I think it was called that in Dune 2000),but at the moment I don’t think we have the right threads for it.

That is one really neat CnC mod you have made there Raminator, pretty impressive.

MOCs based on Video Games and Military belong in Special Themes, however this has a strong Sci-Fi element to it also.

At the author's request, I've moved this to Sci-Fi.

I have been at bit busy lately, so production has been slow, but I have managed to throw a few things together.

First of these:

img1453cj.jpg

It’s the GDI hover MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) from Tiberian Sun:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Hover_Multiple_Launch_Rocket_System

There is barely room for a driver, and it’s built solid as a brick.

Additional pictures:

http://imageshack.us/a/img811/7149/img1455xq.jpg

The other unit I built:

img1459jz.jpg

Here we have the GDI Titan from Tiberian Sun:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Titan_Mk._I

I learned two things from this build. One, there is a reason you don’t build tanks with legs. Two, the titan is actually quite ugly.

Additional pictures:

That’s it for now, but more things are to come.

Excellent creations, man! I love the old CnC games, and these are some damn good renditions of the tech.

I'm particularly fold of your MLRS; that's one slick mama.

Well, I’m back, but only with one thing this time.

I have up until now built something from almost every of the Tiberium games, but I feel that I have neglected one a little, as I have only built two measly (but important) figures for the first game, Command & Conquer Tiberian dawn. That has however changed now:

img1494us.jpg

Witness the Temple of Nod. The heart of the Brotherhood, and the ultimate weapon in their arsenal in Tiberian dawn:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Temple_of_Nod_(Tiberian_Dawn)

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Temple_of_Nod_(Renegade)

This was certainly an interesting build. The pseudo-gothic architecture of the temple does not make for a very stable building unless special care is taken (just like real gothic architecture!).

img1505g.jpg

I took care that every window in the building actually is fitted with red see-through bricks, which makes for some special interior lighting.

img1500k.jpg

And it’s of course fitted with a nuclear weapon.

img1509u.jpg

Nuclear missile launched!

I have no idea what I’ll build next, but I’ll probably come up with something.

Cool MOCs. I especially like the TS Nod minifigs. That helmet gives them exactly the right look.

Sadly for Seth, power shifts quickly in the Brotherhood. I don’t think I need to introduce him, but this is Kane, supreme leader of Nod, and the Messiah.

One of the classic moments in gaming. :grin:

I really enjoy your rendition of the GDI Harvester and Titan Mech. The Temple of Nod is also spot-on!

I’m back, but only with a few new figures.

Here we have one of them:

img1511ld.jpg

General Hassan, leader of the eastern hemisphere forces of the Brotherhood of Nod. Seems to me that he looks rather displeased, and here is why:

img1514y.jpg

Anton Slavik: Brotherhood! We are whole again! The sickness has been cut out!

img1515q.jpg

Slavik: In the name of Kane!

Troops: Kane lives in death!

kanelives.jpg

Kane lives!

Well, now that the scene is through, I can actually elaborate a little on this photo shoot and the figures.

General Hassan is actually in the wrong clothes for this scene, where he is actually just wearing a rather boring grey shirt. I gave him his clothes as seen earlier in the game, but with blue details instead of red ones, for two reasons. 1: His troops are coloured blue in game, and 2: the torso would be almost identical to Slaviks otherwise.

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Hassan

The other figure is Anton Slavik, also a general of Nod and the leader of the Black Hand. He is also in the wrong clothes, as he was just wearing a black shirt, with a single tiny Nod logo. So I went with his slightly fancier uniform from the Firestorm expansion.

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Anton_Slavik

The photo shoot is a recreation of one the more notable scenes from Tiberian sun (If you hadn’t guessed that already you haven’t played the game). I must apologize for my weak skills with MS paint. One thing to not, is that the table at which Slavik stands is actually outfitted with a sticker of a Nod logo, even if it can’t be seen in the pictures.

Well, it’s been some time since I last made any CnC MOC’s, but now I’m back with a few more.

First up we have some of the few Nod troops I hadn’t yet made from Renegade:

img1783ht.jpg

http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/5659/img1784ks.jpg

Here we have the Nod Rocket Soldier Officer, and the Nod Technician:

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Rocket_Soldier_Officer

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Technician_(Renegade)

Next up are some more Nod troops:

img1786nz.jpg

Here we have the Nod Confessor and the Saboteur, both from Tiberium Wars. The reason it took this long to get to the Confessor is that I first had to come up with some way of making their elongated helmet.

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Confessor

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Saboteur_(Tiberium)

And now a little cavalcade of Kane throughout the times:

http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/624/img1782v.jpg

http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/1376/img1779v.jpg

http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/1760/img1780tz.jpg

http://img5.imageshack.us/img5/8048/img1763c.jpg

(Yes, the poor, red lighting in this one is very much intentional)

http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/5706/img1781vk.jpg

And because Runamuck likes to experiment a little with light:

tacitus.png

The Tacitus! This picture is inspired by the intro to the fourth game, Tiberian Twillight, but the less said about that game the better.

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Tacitus

Now for some actual MOC’s:

img1766v.jpg

http://img690.imageshack.us/img690/2329/img1764u.jpg

I have finally gotten around to building the last upgrade for the Scorpion tank: The dozer blade.

Well, this post has been very Nod centric…let’s crash this party!

img1767yq.jpg

The GDI Mammoth tank. The ever present mascot of the Command & Conquer franchise. This is the version as it was seen in the very first game, Tiberian Dawn.

http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/Mammoth_Mk._I

Additional pictures:

http://img833.imageshack.us/img833/8825/img1777g.jpg

Well. That’s it for now, we’ll see when I get around to building some more.

Very interesting work. I love those games! I feel like you need a flame tank and an Orca!' I really like the buggy and the Titan is pretty cool too.

I also think tan might work better than yellow for GDI. If you have the parts, that could really make these MOCs look sharp!

HOO GOD SOMEBODY DID IT

SOMEBODY ACTUALLY MADE ALL MY DREAMS

THATS A MAMMOTH TANK

The decals aren't prefect, but still have a certain charm. Really love all the Nod soldiers. Those vehicles, though, man.

Wow. That is so fantastic. They aren't perfect, but they have that incredible charm, they look so very playable, and I love that, man. The fantastic, vibrant colors, the simple designs, they all cooperate into that look like so much fun. Oh, and that temple of Nod. Man, how well made. You perfected the shape and feel of that Mammoth tank.

Wow, keep going man. Now you understand its your solemn responsibility to create a full-on game of CnC with all these units, right?

Because it totally is.

Thanks for the comments.

Yes it might be true that GDI might look better in tan (although how yellow or tan they are varies from game to game), but I just don’t have the amount or the variety of bricks in tan to make much of anything.

As for my non-perfect decals. I think it stems from the fact that they are all drawn by hand, which I just think is more fun than doing them on the computer.

I do hope to continue building more units, but as for making a game…either it would be a very anachronistic army, or I should have focused more on one of the games. As for a LEGO C&C game, you might want to ask Raminator, who earlier in this thread posted about a LEGO mod for Yuri’s revenge.
