Hello once again everyone! There is a little-known contest going on right now, the Dark Hunter Contest! There's a link below if you want to join, entries aren't due until March 10th. Anyway here are my entries: the Hand of Ancient!
About this creation

Link to Dark Hunter Contest.
Contest rules said we had to build a team of at least three Dark Hunters.
Well... I've built seven.
Hopefully the four superfluous ones will net me some extra points. :P

・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ ・


The Hand of Ancient is a squad of 7 Dark Hunters of varying races and abilities, hand-picked by the Shadowed One’s lieutenant, Ancient. These elite bounty hunters and assassins are assigned to difficult missions, always staying low-profile and inconspicuous while expertly carrying out their objectives. There are seven members of the Hand of Ancient:


Furnace, Ronin, Hermes, Rasp, Shade, Anlace, Morningstar.


Hermes was a Ko-Matoran inventor who created special high-tech boots giving him advanced speed, jump height, agility, and also limited flight. He carries a sword taken from a former target. Hermes joined the Dark Hunters after several yeas of freelance bounty hunting.












Morningstar was a Steltian warlord with a large army, but it was destroyed by Pridak's conquest when Morningstar's forces infringed on the League of Six Kingdoms' territory. He later joined the Dark Hunters along with two of his generals in hope of glory, and revenge on the League. Morningstar's codename comes from his signature weapon: a large flail, or morningstar, attached to his wrist.


















Furnace gets his name from his signature ability; using his large bellows-like stomach, this eyeless Dark Hunter can exhale large and powerful flames. For a more effective melee weapon, Furnace's arms end in blades. Lacking eyes, Furnace navigates via smell and taste; this can be a major weakness should he nasally inhale his own fire. Furnace is a devout follower of Morningstar and willingly joined the Dark Hunters when Morningstar did.










Anlace wields a pair of retractable wrist daggers, which is the basis of her codename. She is very fierce in battle, and with her blades at the ready, she is a very deadly opponent. She was once one of Morningstar's generals, and joined the Dark Hunters with him and Furnace.
















Shade is your typical silent-but-deadly assassin; he is also a master strategist. Shade has the ability to generate powerful bursts of energy. If this potent ability is knocked out of control, Shade can be a pure destructive force and a hazard to all those near him. Shade's pulse blaster allows him to keep his energy in check, and focus it in a strong beam or burst. Nobody knows exactly where Shade hails from or what species he belongs to, but it is rumored that he is an enhanced Vortixx who renounced his native culture, later joining the Dark Hunters in the hope of finding something (but nobody knows what).
























Rasp is a veteran Dark Hunter, originally joining the ranks for fortune. He lost his hand in a battle in the Toa - Dark Hunter War, replacing it with a combination of a light gun with heavy double blades. He is ruthless and intelligent, a master at setting complex traps and ambushes. Rasp gets his nickname from the growling undertones of his voice.
















Ronin is a Toa of Sonics. He is quite adept in the use of his element, but often while on missions he prefers to use his weapons instead. He is reclusive and quiet, as are most Toa of Sonics, but his silence helps him to be the stealthiest member of the team. Ronin carries a protorifle and a spear. Ronin's reasons for joining the Dark Hunters are unknown, but the Shadowed One is keeping close tabs on him.






























Additional commentary and notes:

・Shade was going to be my secondary self-MOC, but I have now decided to give that slot to another MOC. Shade will probably still be revamped/upgraded sometime in the future.
・When he talks, Rasp sounds like Clint Eastwood.
・Ronin is vaguely samurai-inspired, most notably due to the helmet, armor patterns, and spear.
・An anlace is a type of knife.
・Hermes got his name from his shoes and wing-like helmet.
・Furnace is most certainly intended to look chubby.
・Morningstar is a member of Sidorak's species, the upper class Steltians.



Thank you for taking the time to read this!
Hopefully I do well in the Dark Hunter Contest, good luck to all participants!
Remember, you can still request posters here.
That's all for now!

Okay okay, no need for threats! Yes, I already answered both of your questions. Ive already told people that they can use the Hermes design, as long as you give credit. I also said that the helmet is actually the front of a motorcycle from the old Jack Stone / 4+ sets.

Although every member looks epic, they seem too Toa like. I'd try and branch out a bit more, make them seem as wild and beast like as you can. Anyway overall a great team :D Just not too Dark Huntery :)

Quoting Steve The Squid BLEARGH
Thanks for the in-depth feedback, Steve! Anlace looks weird, I know, but I was running out of parts and really felt the team needed a female Dark Hunter. Ronin wasn't supposed to have a six-pack, but looking at it now, I see you're right, it certainly looks like that. Feel free to revamp him if you want! Shade is intended to look incredibly skinny, but I will definitely revamp him sometime. I built some odd custom firearms for Rasp, but I didn't really know where I was going with them, so I gave him the simple ones. Anyway, thanks for all the advice! It's critique like this that improves a MOCist's skills. :D

Let's start with Hermes: Eh, he's perfect. Love that head. Morningstar: Need something on his shoulders, epaulettes would have been cool. Love his weapon and feet! Head's awesome too. Furnace: Gets a meh from me, I don't like the uncustom legs, I only like the shoulders, but those don't look like theyre attached. Anlace: I think everything's too skinny, except her torso which is too fat, and her heels aren't very high at all. The hair could've used both tentacles, and the arms look silly to me, too skinny with just a little technic on them. Shade: Needs more bulk. What else can I say? If you're gonna bulk him up more and fill in those giant gaps, I suggest a BL order for trans-light-blue. I think he's a good candidate for a secondary though. Rasp: If you have more lime parts, you should have forsaken the HF for bionicle parts, because they look out of place on him. All his bulk is amazing, as are his chest tubes (looooove theeem), and then you see the upper legs and lower arms, and they look pathetic. The weapon's great, but I'm not a big fan on what you've been doing shin-wise, with the nuva parts, I think they need to be integrated better (although they look better on that other moc of yours). Ronin..... :( There's not really anything good you can say about that chest, sorry. I can see you tried to go for a six-pack, and that's a fantastic idea, but I think may need to be implemented on a larger scale. I like the overbulked lower legs, but that's it. The lower arms look silly, much too big for the rest of the moc, and I can't say I like the use of the minifig hands on him. I like him as a character, and I'd be excited to see a revamp (perhaps by myself). His weapon needs more effort as well. All in all, I think you ordered the mocs best-first. I hope this was helpful, as always, I'm not trying to insult. :D Hope you keep up the good work, I may go against you in this competish. Oh my FSM, I just saw how long this comment is. Geez.

Quoting Aquarist Shaluub They're all cool, and you used some nice building techniques (also, nice bios, by the way), but dawg, what is up with Anlace's feet? They are a bit too long and narrow.
Well the orange Inika feet I initially used looked awful, and I was too lazy to find other ones, so I built some custom feet.

Thanks everyone! Hermes' helmet is from an old motorcycle, I don't know what set though. Ro, I was running out of parts and ideas on Anlace, and I initially intended Shade to be extremely disproportionate. I did try to cover up the waist, but it didn't look good, so I left it; as I said though, he'll probably be revamped. :)

Ok, Anlance's arms are weird looking, and shade's hips and torso look like a twig, those are my only complaints. But all of that is dwarfed by the others, and I aplaude you! You deffinately beefed up their torso, so all but shade have a good enough armoring or girth to it that it's appealing. An you resorted to energy weapons as guns for your Dark Hunters, so I can't correct you on how those work, the toa's I love the most! An best of all, Furnace is absolutely WICKED! I love his head, you outta make a poster of him stretching out his hands and bellowing fire into the sky while the toa watch in fear! Good job man, good job!
