Aright, so stay with me here. This is my first Dawn Forge mecha, and it was a terrific build. One of the most fun I've done to date, and I see why Brian is so hooked. Oh, speaking of Mr. Kescenovitz (yes, I can actually spell it), credit to him for the entire DF theme, syle, and general awesomeness it holds. Constructive Crtitsm is welcome and encouraged! Hope you like what you see.
About this creation
A rather effective weapon, that I haven't seen pop up in to many DF mecha, an anti-infantry flame thrower. More on that down the page.
Six nasty 220mm rockets, three per pod, totaling 18 missiles, and the main weapon of the INSTINCT.
The communications array and a 35mm machine gun, and although it has a slower rate of fire than the 4 barreled gattling guns, it sacrafies speed for accuracy, nailing infantry almost every time, and blowing holes in other vehicles right where you want them! The INSTINCT is typically deployed in city centers, and can be used to conqure as well as maintain.
The requisite walking pic, to show how stable it is. The leg uses Brians new design. Works quite well, although due to a piece shortage, I was forced to change the overall design a bit. See if you can figure it out!
Yes, that stripe was a pain, but it does flow all around the mecha, top and bottom. I began to regret it as soon as I realized the pain it was to make the structure stable. As an atvantage, though, it can be torn apart quite easily for quick fixes. One of the unique features of the INSTINCT is that they well they are typically deployed in groups of three, they have an advanced AI that allowes them to combine and seperate, whether it is into a legion of 50, or to spilt into pairs of two, they all learn to tap into each others systems, allowing them to be controlled from a hive mind, that can be moved to any of the mecha in the group, at any time.
As I said up above, this is the effect of the flame thrower. Burns flesh from bone, and then burns the bone too! Constructive Critism is welcome and encouraged. Hope you liked what you saw!
