Testing the prototype.

10 posts in this topic

Even though Mikel Kalores is missing, Gaius Kaleci continues his work. A dwarven golem has been engineered and given the task to search for Mikel and bring him home. Will the golem succeed or will the hordes of vampires overcome it?

Nice work, I love the use of Samurai hats for sholders! :thumbup: The fig positioning is great, but maybe you could have put the robot (or whatever) in a bit more of a fighting stance (with the legs?).

Very nice fight scene! I agree with Kai NRG that the samurai helmet usage is excellent :thumbup:

Thanks guys!

but maybe you could have put the robot (or whatever) in a bit more of a fighting stance (with the legs?).

I'll try and take a side view pic so you can get a better view of his leg system. He (the golem) is not very photogenic. I took several different shots of him but this is the only one that turned out ok. I don't know if you have watched Battlestar Galactica but I pictured this golem as one of the original cylons just with swords instead of guns so there isn't much of a battle stance. It kind of just marches and takes out anything in its path... Also even though his leg system is trple jointed, it has limited functionality. Being the prototype, I will be improving on this whenever I get some more inspiration.

i like the golem very much. I think it could have used a beard though as it is a DWARVEN golem.

So many NPU´s in your moc! The shoulders look, as said before, great! The posing of the minifigs is top notch! Well done!

Thanks TheLegoNinja and de Gothia!

He does have a beard! :wink: But I know what you're meaning and I think it would have been awesome with a black dwarven beard but unfortunately doesn't fit right...

I've added the following photos to the first post and as you can see I did make some minor cosmetic changes to the golem as well.

Nice work on the different stances, although seeing it from the back maybe the brown could be changed to black or grey? Looks good from the second stance especially :thumbup:

I think you are right. I was trying to add some wood components but now that you mention it, it does look a bit tacky... originally there wasn't any piece there but I wanted some more support for the kusazuri which kept falling off when I tried to move the legs.

Excellent use of the samuraihelmets on the shoulders! Also nice combo's on the vampires using the gladiator helmet!
