Armour-dillo class Dropship. Another ship from the Herald 1 Attack Cruiser group. Hope you enjoy the pictures of my first major Fig sized MOC. I managed to control my greeb addiction better in this build ha ha ha!!.
About this creation

This is a top shot to show the general shape of the ship


This pic shows the assualt tank at the front of the ship and the general shape and size of the main dropship. The assault tank is a hover tank that is either a working part of the ship during flight or detaches from it's mag clamps to wreak havok on enemy forces once ship has landed.


Night landing with assault tank ready for action.


Rear shot; including 360 deg rotating turrent pulse cannon, rear hanger and main propulsion engines.


Hanger door open and pulse cannon tracking me (got to close I guess).


Close-up of engine.


Same again.


Close-up of Pulse cannon.


This centre top area was very testing on my greeb senses, but I managed to get by it. This shows tracking array close-up and booster rockets at rear top left and right.


Clearer shot of rear landing gear. I had a play and designed the main front and two rear gears to be springed an actually raise. Each have closing covers also. This is a(heavy, but very "swooshable" ship and has chased my young ones Lego Space police ship many times.
Thanks for looking at Part one of my Pics and I will have Part two "Internal detail" pics up soon after these.

Quoting El Barto ! Impressive beast here, Dude! Tons of great features. Would make a great official set!
Thanks EB. This was heaps of fun to build and I got some good ideas off my little boy too! I owed him a more interactive build after Herald1. Official set? I doubt anyone could afford it with all the pieces ha ha;) Aussie out.

Quoting Garry King WOWSERES !!!!! This is one spectacular spacecraft. Glad to read you let the greeble-hollic in you free. A pleasure seeing a finely sculptured vessel. NEXT time go over board in greebling always fun to see. This is Brilliant indeed. WELL DONE.
Thanks Garry. I'm craving an orbital space station build (ooohhh yeah). I haven't seen any big ones for a while on the pages so I was thinking what better way to release the greeb. Cheers mate.

Quoting Eric Landreneau Sleek and gorgeous. Can't wait for the internal pics. Love the shaping of the engines. I think you should add a medium turret on top of the tank - it'd me more tankish, and give the overall ship fore and aft turrets when the tank's attached.
I agree. This build was surprisingly easy and really flowed well from the start. I will try and have a play around with the turret idea on the tank. As long as it doesn't impact on the front shape too much; sounds good, You can never have enough guns. Did I mention it's swooshable.....hahaha Thanks mate.

Quoting matt rowntree Congrats on your greeble restrain, although I didn't mind it on your Herald 1. On that vessel, it seemed plausibly industrial. This one is much cleaner looking, seems right for a dropship. I like the name, but you might consider accentuating some layered armor so its shape or look recalls its namesake. Great job and I'll be looking for the interior shots.
I got my greeb fix on the hull; ha ha ha!! Herald always was going to be a love or hate greeb ship. The scale, I thought, warranted the detail and I think it looks good too. Funny you brought up the layers point. I tried a coloured layer and it ended up looking like a zebra. I rationalized it that the associated animal has teeth: the tank/ ears: the side doors/ an armoured body: the dropship/ a tail: rear bay door/ skimpy little legs: landing gears. I'm sticking to that ;) I'll have the inside and hull pics up by the weekend. Thanks for the constructive comments mate. MOC-on

Quoting Reaper the Ultimate . This is EPIC! It's a very skillfully built ship with many intricacies. However, it's a bit large for a dropship. In fact, to me it's a cruiser! I quite like the detachable tank and the landing gear, but both its size and shape don't quite scream Dropship at me. I don't know why. Still, this is an epic MOC!
Thanks for the look at the build mate. It looks big on the outside, but wait until you see the inside details I will post soon and the scale to Fig size will be more clear. Actually, come to think of it now, from other ships I have seen this could be classed as a cruiser (awkward moment:)). I will get some shots of the underside also to show the landing gears better. Thanks Reaper!! And as always....MOC-on
