AG 19 - BG17 "Halo" Escort Glider (and more!)
The BG17 "Halo", the BS32 "Evil Eye" and an hystorical bonus! 3 vehicles total, 2 of them balance :)
About this creation
The BG17 "Halo" Escort Glider brings ArcheoGenis one step closer to space supremacy! (Were it not such a small army)


The Halo is designed to escort other vessels landing or taking off from planets.


To do so, it's a perfectly balanced VTOL with innovative support technology.


Its frontal Ring is an Aura Weapon, derived by a side research on the MALE weapons.
Aura weapons have 3 main functions.


1- they can fire in any direction without need for mechanical aim, even towards partially hidden targets (as long as they can be locked in).
2- they can release a 360° or a spherical burst, hitting anything in range save the equipping vehicle itself.
3- they can power up or shield any energy attack passing through the Ring.


The Halo is also equipped with a Plasma Stinger. It fires a highly concentrated, piercing blast at long range.


The Stinger can also be fired through the Ring, for a devastating attack. This drains a lot of power, since both weapons fire at once, and weakens the Halo's shields for a short while.


The cockpit is made of Structure Cells with Bionite covering, VERY durable.


Although it's not required, Halos are equipped with a Psi-Array to accomodate the needs of Psi-Ops during special missions.


Of course the Halo shares the feats of all other BioMechanical vehicles like regenerating Structure Cells(slower in space), a Brain Core (bot CPU and generator) and an EAP (Evolved Artificial Personality).


See the Halo balance freely in this crappy video!

(I had no help handy to shoot it)


BS32 "Evil Eye" Space Fighter


The Evil Eye is a light and very fast fighter designed to disrupt enemy shields, leaving them open to stronger attacks.


Its main weapon is the "Gnarl Cannon". It fires a disruptor beam that shifts frequency hundreds of times per second. The effect on energy shields is exceptional.


Its main thruster is very powerful and efficient: the Evil Eye displays one of the greatest autonomies among fighter of even greater class.


The modulating device of the Gnarl Cannon can be disengaged, turning it into a disruptor normally effective against any target, although still oversized for this class of fighter.


Veteran pilots learn to change mode swiftly to achieve optimal damage.


The Evil Eye firing through Halo's Ring. Powered attacks retain all their original effects: such an attack could easily disrupt the shields of a large ship completely, leaving it wide open to attacks for a short time.


Halo class gliders can also be positioned in front of a capital ship's cannons for a DREADFUL effect.


The Halo glides effortlessly thanks to its extensive Cavorite sub-coating.
Cavorite is a material impenetrable to gravity like normal matter is impenetrable to light.


It was discovered in 1901 by a Dr Cavor, who used it to fly the 1st expedition to the Moon.


Of course the lack of atmosphere in space made that expedition a failure. Even so, steam-propelled gliders were used for transportation until pushed out of the market by oil powered airplanes.



Cavorite steam gliders were still used by country gentlemen for their leisure until the early '30s of the 20th century.


See the Cavorite Steam Glider standing on my finger :)


And here I am, thinking about higher things (lol, inside the Halo's Ring you can see my Rig Veda!)


If you want some explanation about some fictional tech mentioned here check the ArcheoGenis Technology.

My 1st balancing craft, the Evinrude.

Note #1: the name "Halo" refers to its ring-like weapon. It has no relation with a certain popular videogame.
Note #2: I changed the main pic because the blacklight pic was SO cooler than the edited one :)
Note #3: This is the 2nd time I upload this. My PC crached in the "preview" page while the pointer was an inch from the "upload" button.
Note #4: of course the main attraction's colors are BTII! It's my favourite theme ever!
Note #5: Nobody mentioned H.G. Wells yet :(

Inspiration came mainly from Rusty Pete's Eclipse, Go Nagai's Kotetsushin Jjeeg's Build Angels, as well as various Stargate MOCs, of course.

CAVORITE comes from "The first men on the Moon" by H.G. Wells. COME ON!

Comments are welcome. Very.

You´re the true master of balancing ships. The idea of amplifing the power of other ship´s weapons with that ring-thing is kinda cool. Oh, and the Blactron 2 colours always rule!

Quoting Lee Jones An interesting design, but I wonder if the Halo might not fit around my BFC? Lee.
Then you could call it The BFC RING. It could be used to prolong those Black Hole journeys when maximum analization is needed. Oops, did I spell that wrong?~H

Dude! I'm working on an acheogenesis craft right now. Superb job here. I agree with Chris. No more robe pics. I might have to post some beach pics for you if you don't stop. I'm a scrawny pale (good looking) teen! Yar! Ah well, chicks dig skinny. So says my friend Sam. Anyways, love the halo, and the round front rocks on that one. Laters.

Awesome looking glider things, especially the Halo Escort glider! I've gotta say though, I've never heard of that first man on the moon novel by H.G. Wells. Now I'm thinking I'll have to read it, in order to prove I'm not literary challenged =)

So... Cavorite must cast a sort of "Gravity Shadow"? So if you had a table made out of it, it would stay where it was, but anything you put on top of it would float away as the gravity is reflected away by the underside of the table. is that right? I think Cavorite is going to be another Elemental Toa power :D And, and the MOCs are amazing, too, as always! I saw the vid on YouTube... but... Cavorite intrigues me. I want some :D

Impenetrable to gravity!!! 'tis madness! The olde time-y glider kinda came as a surprise, but I like the way you linked it in with the first two, which are both awesome. I think in light of your frustration with posting this post, you should've re-taken the last picture with them both balancing on two certain different fingers... Love the technique you used for the ring, very clever and as always such originality.

The Evil eye is a wicked looking ship and the steam glider is a crack up. The gate halo ship is down right creepy, right up to the pilot behind the skull canopy. Wicked build this one.

Quoting Freela and BrickFan93 You really ought to write Science Fiction, because you have some sort of funky tech-zen going on here.
I do, and I did. I suffered a major setback when an external drive died without backup taking with it all my unpublished work :( Most of my "ArcheoGenis" concepts come from a lost story called "Project: Chimera" wich I can't find the strength to re-write.
Quoting Stuart Delahay But I'm not sure about the bathrobe photo.
Quoting Blake Buehl No more robe pics.
Quoting Chris Phipson Never... and I mean NEVER take a picture of yourself in your bathrobe again.
Although the public seems to agree, that's not a bathrobe, it's a dressing-gown. It's made of warm and comfy pile, perfect for cold winter nights. And I assure to the ladies I'm VERY huggable in that.

I saw the word "Halo" and almost ignored this... Am I ever glad I didn't! Once again, your innovative and sleek craft astound me with their creative genius. I REALLY like the bios for each of them, they're really inventive concepts. Well done, sir!
  January 14, 2010
I am, sir, quite literally astounded. You have such singular designs there in which Her Majesty's Government is very interested. (That would be Katherine of Brittany, whose time period is akin to our 1910's-1920's). We are particularly interested in the steam propelled glider, which appears as though it would give us a considerable advantage in our struggle against the forces of Piedmont. An envoy has been dispatched to discuss the matter with you. (The technology of the other two ships would be far beyond their field support capability. 90% of the roads in the Realm are unpaved, for starters.) All fantasy aside, these are three great Mocs and I'm glad to give you a 5.
