For the Periodic Bionicle Contest 2012 semifinals, in the category Bromine Brothers. I present to you the Toxic Twins, the Corrosive Copies: Lowig and Balard.
About this creation
The Periodic Bionicle Contest 2012.

Info about bromine here.













Lowig.

Steadfast, willful, and brave, Lowig is the brother of Balard, and represents the gaseous form of bromine. As a result he smells awful most of the time; this is usually blamed on his element, but some people think otherwise. Lowig wields a hammer that can be used for forging or fighting (both are favorite activities of his) and wears a Komau, like his brother.























Balard.
Quick, intelligent, and adept, Balard is the brother of Lowig, and represents the liquid form of bromine. As with his brother, he can be particularly potent; bromine is quite corrosive and toxic. (Despite this, he smells significantly better.) Balard wields a short saber, and wears a Komau, like his brother.

























So here we are. Hopefully you all found all that mildly intriguing.


Lowig and Balard are the surnames of the two scientists to discover bromine. Not wanting to waste precious building time conceiving names for these characters, I instead elected to give them names with an actual value. Surprising, hmm?


Not sure how well this came across but these guys are based on stereotype character classes. Lowig is a dwarf; stout and strong, carries a hammer. Balard is probably a cleric or assassin of some sort; thin and light on his feet, carries a quick, silent blade.


Notes:
- Lowig has a botbelly. He's chubbeh. Nothing suspicious there. I'm looking at you, Terilis.
- Ignore the pink parts on Balard. They're actually red. I'm too rushed to edit the pictures.


There are five hidden links on this page. No spaces or punctuation this time, I promise. ;)
As Gale Winthrope has pointed out, the final link seems to be broken. I'll take care of it once I get home.



I will be away on vacation on the West Coast from the 5th until the 17th. I will have a lot of parts with me, and sporadic internet access, but no Java-equipped device. Unfortunately this means that I will possibly have to drop out of the BioCup.

I like your photo poses! I've never paid much attention to that mask before, but it was a great choice for the two. Another thing that struck me was that you are one of the few I've seen who took the time to complete the heels of those Rahkshi feet! Best of Luck! :)

Great build! Love the overall build of both of them. Best of luck in the contest and I'll be cheering for you. ^.^ Those previews look... Interesting. ;) An unknown species??? I'll be working on those in the following weeks ;P or as soon as I'm kicked out of the Bio-Cup which Shouldn't be too long of a wait what with the competitors ive seen.

Quoting Terilis the Dark Angel Lowig looks cool, but his 'cough' "lower" areas, look a tad... akward. But other than that, they both look great.
Yeah. That's what my brother said. It's a potbelly, okay? XD

They both turned out great! Lowig does look very dwarf-ish, and Balard comes across as very nimble, so you nailed 'em! The color scheme also look great, all in all well done =)

Pretty cool MOCs! They both look good, but the orange helmet piece on Lowig's waist looks odd. It's too bulky.

Very cool! I'm not sure about Lowig's chest armor, with the bulkey waist and black bit on the chest. Something more uniform that wasn't just a few disconnected orange bits would be nice. Otherwise, great job on them both.

Amazing! I really like how bulky Lowig is! I found all five hidden links, the last doesn't work for me either. The 3rd previewed MOC I'm very excited about! Keep up the great MOCs and have fun fun on your trip! :)

Man these mocs awesome. I love Balard the most(mostly cuz I love mocs that have a slim assassin look) But Lowig is a great moc, too. I only found one link(the long one)

Quoting Gale Winthrope Excellent duo, they just carry around that essence of, dangerous. Also, I found all five links, but the bottom one wouldn't show up, regardless of that I can't wait to see them as a post! (I think these link things have caught on like cubans ;)
Hmm... I don't know why, it doesn't work for me either. Once I get home I'll look into that problem. And, well, really? I hope not... XD
