MIT Round 1: the bourbonbrick VS. Kyle Peckham
My entry to the 2011 MocOlympics MIT. Round 1. Topic: You and What Army? Build a small army (more like strike force size) complete with infantry, hardsuits, vehicles and maybe even a small mech or two. You don’t have to show them in a base or on assignment but the more you put in, the more you’ll get out of it.
About this creation
The 2011 MIT group homepage.
My opponent, the bourbonbrick 's homepage.

Now a little bit of back story for this faction:

The 23rd century has brought many technological advances into the world, like the very first hovercar, the teleportation device, and the invisibility suit. But none of this would have been able to have happened without THEIR help.

In the year 2056, a giant object was found on a collision course with Earth. It was thought to be a meteor. The human race went to the underground cities and waited. A year later, they sent probes onto the surface to see what life was like now. They found nothing different. The levels of oxygen and other gases in the atmosphere where the same. Mankind ventured back out onto the surface.

Just over the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, there was a strange object hovering over the Great Pyramid at Giza. There was another similar object hovering over Mayan ruins in South America. There was also an object hovering over Stonehenge in England. Humans stared in awe.

These objects left 10 years later 2067. They left carvings inscribed in the ruins of these ancient buildings and monuments. They were formulas. Humans were not advanced enough to know what they meant at the time.

It was only until the year 2197 until a archaeologist named Francisco Esperanto discovered a small tablet near some Mayan ruins in South America. It had the same type of writing on it that the objects had left almost 150 years before that. It also had ancient Egyptian on it. This object was dated to be 10,000 years old. It was used as a translation tool to decipher the strange writing. The writings were now decoded. They were formulas for something.

It now is the year 2268, the United Nations Army (UNA) had used these formulas to advance their technologies. They now control the world's resources and rule the world as a Republic. These are their war machines.

TO THE MOC!



The HG-2600 "Stomper" drone is the backbone for a UNA squad. With 3 Gatling guns, this six-legged robot is versatile in any environment. It is most useful in combat conflicts. The 3 guns each pump out 2000 plasma bolts a minute, making it extremely useful when badly outnumbered.

Here are the standard UNA foot soldiers. They keep the peace and attend to riots and small conflicts. They operate with 2 commandos.



They have special shock wave resistant armor which allows them to jump from high heights and take a huge hit from an enemy weapon without breaking a sweat. That is what the white minifig hands are on the legs, shock absorbers.



These are the commandos. They operate with 2 UNA standard soldiers. Mainly used in heavy conflicts and stealth missions.



They have the same armor as the UNA foot soldiers.



Here we have my pride and joy of this compilation.

The D-100 hardsuit is one versatile piece of equipment. It is usually used for heavy fighting, and major conflicts. It can be fitted for heavy, long range fighting, or for close-quarters combat with enemy hardsuits. Every single D-100 is equipped with a shield with the UNA symbol on it and a wrist blade.

The heavy weapon attachments.



The K9-550 "Fido" drone tank is a valuable part of every squad. With 2 heavy plasma cannons, this tank can easily hold off an enemy. The large bucket on the front is used to either carry troops and supplies, or to clear rubble from the path of other soldiers and drones.

Rear view. I think this looks like the back of the Batmobile. :P

Now for the starfighter!

The Hoyton Industries "Eagle" class starfighters are the best around. With a top speed of Mach 10, it is surprising that the pilots don't die from the massive amount of pressure on their bodies. But Hoyton Industries developed this starfigher to withstand speeds up to Mach 30. With 4 plasma bolt guns, it is a force to be reckoned with in the sky and in space.

Here are some pics of the soldiers in action. Even in the 23rd century, hippies are still a problem. Here 2 UNA soldiers block the street in front of protesters.



Another view of the protest.

FOURTH WALL:

When I first saw that I had this category, I was so excited. Futuristic military is my favorite thing to build with System. It took me a bit to figure out how to build a SNOTted starfighter. 2 days to be exact. I had so much fun building it. Yes, the figs are recycled. They are just my White Tiger troopers with some stuff added to them. I had a hardsuit design for a long time and never was able to use it. I got the chance with this! Overall, I am very satisfied with the builds.

Constructive criticism and comments are appreciated! KP out!

Hey Man, In Order To Make This Smoother, I'm Breaking This Up Into Sections, And I Will Do My Best To Limit My Comments To Advice As You Requested. |The "Stomper" Drone The Drone At First Glance, Has A Simple Structure, However Upon Closer Inspection, There's A Lot Of Detail Work In The Little Guy. I See No Issue With The Drone.| /Both Variants Of Mini Figs: As The Case Was With The Drone, I Really Have No Issue With The Mini Figs, Each Variant Has A Distinct, Clean Style And Are Well Equipped. Oh, The Shock Absorbers Were A Nice Touch./ |The "D-100 hardsuit" The Overall Design I Have Very Little Problems With, I Do However Feel That Leaving The Hands Empty, Makes The Suit Seem A Little Lacking, Even With The Heavy Weapons. Maybe Adding A Gun To Increase Firepower Would Help With That Issue. I Would Also Make An Anit Hardsuit Sword, The Knife Is A Nice Feature And I Would Keep It, But I Feel That Having A Larger Sword Would Be Devastating. Another Possible Issue Is The Lack Of Frame Flexibility In The Limbs, You May Be Able To Keep The Scale By Using The V Hinge Piece To Allow For Movement.| /"The K9-550 "Fido" drone tank" I Feel That The Only Actual Issue With The Tank Is The Use Of The Bucket For Transportation Of Troops And Supplies, The Bucket Works For Such A Purpose But I Feel That The Tank Would Functional More Smoothly If You Had A Compartment For Storage, To Protect The Troops Or Supplies And Free The Bucket To Ram Enemies Or To Clear Debris Even While Carrying./ |"Eagle" The Only Issue I Have Is The Use Of The Flat Pieces To SNOT This Craft As Much As Possible. While Not Exactly Your Fault, The Flat Pieces Give Some Regions Awkward Shaping. Maybe Incorporating A Less Flat, More Slope Oriented Design On The Wings Would Make For A More Elegant Appearance. Another Issue Is The Use Of White Is Fairly High, Adding A Small Amount Contrast Would Help Bring Out The Detailing Of The Craft, As Some Of It Is Lost In The Single Color Usage.| Overall, The MOCs You Have Here Are Still Very Nice And Have A Distinct Style That Ties Well With The Story. Nice Work.
