This is my entry for the “Contest for All Military Creations.” Okay, that’s done, now on to the MOC.
This is a Teldarian Mercenary Attack Tank, “Desert Terrain”-class. Due to the unforeseen acronym, this tank is mockingly known to the mercenary group’s enemies as the “Doormat”, and is the butt of many jokes. However, to face the M.A.T. is no laughing matter. Primarily an anti-personnel tank, the M.A.T. boasts two 45mm laser cannons and an anti-infantry 20mm turret that has auto-control implanted. Yet, despite these weapons, the true danger the M.A.T. represents is being crushed to death. The M.A.T.’s twin treads are reinforced with surplus armor plates, and Teldarian pilots aren’t squeamish. One other use is the ability to crash through the walls of buildings, provided they aren’t reinforced. The cone in the front is actually a heavily armored battering ram, and those treads and the rear wheel can build up a lot of momentum!
About this creation
Pretty much the only thing I haven’t mentioned is the headlights here.
Here’s the mercenary crew. From left to right, we have Dude With the Twin Pistols, Super Sniper Rifle Dude, Dude with a Really Big Gun, and Dude With a Really Really Really REALLY Big Gun.
Wow, the design is awesome! It looks like a type of mining vehicle turned military. So you're a Christian? I am too! And you're homeschooled!? I was homeschooled all up untill last year when I started public. It's a whole lot worse. People think that because I was homeschooled I'm some kind of anti-social, recluse. Anyhow, the tank looks fantasitic!
how havnt i commented on this yet? Ive check it out a couple times an i thought i left comments. weird. any way, this is really good, id say your best moc. great shape and unique design. reggie kind of creeps me out a bit. i really like your use of color
Taldarian? Try Teldarian. And as for the M.A.T, awesome! The details are a go! And your minifigs DEFINATELY look like the common, messy merc that make the population of the Merc Army. And more races, interesting! That Ork-like guy can be the Native Teldarian from the Moon Teldar, base of the Teldarian Mercs (discuss in the Native races of the NEOverse topic from the group).
To answer all of your questions, this tank was developed using Starmark tech, with a unique design on the Taldarians' part. I got the idea to build the tank from Brick Freak's tank, so it seems fair to give him some of the credit. Keep on brickin'!
No the faction is a great one to work with because of its lack of uniformity. And good luck with the contest, now to find some judges. Hey Brick Freak, do you want to be a judge for this contest? I would really appreciate it.
