On the insectoid inhabited world, it pays to send out scouts from time to time to check the above landscape and to report back if anything important should come up such as enemy movement and/or supplies seen.
In this particualr instance, both human and insect forces have sent out scouting units which have come into contact, a scuffle among scouts. Due to the insect being superior in the air, it has easily overwhelmed the human's scouting ship and caused it to crash.
I wouldn't say the human has much chance of survival now.
After watching Wreck It Ralph for the hundreth time (can't help it, it's a great movie) I got inspired by the bulbous design of the Cybugs in the movie and decided to make a bug inspired by their initial design. This time round though, I went for a technic bug rather than a system one and I'm extremley pleased with the result.
This bug is bulbous and rounded in the body, has a small abdominal section with the rear limbs and a split tail branching out. Due to the rounded body, the head becomes 'snub'. Here I used the Rahkshi head which gives it the bulldog effect on the face with the underbite look.
The vehicle came afterwards and I wanted to make it aerial for a change so I came up with a 'star faced' kind of pod-ship that would carry one pilot. It looks a bit odd with the body being a bit long and the quad pointed front but it does the job.
Overal, I'm happy to present another bug based moc to continue my own little insectoid vs human story based mocs.
Really nice stuff as usual, Fenrek. ^_^
Love how alien they both look. Maybe I should try making a spacecraft sometime... :D
Just thought I'd point out, thought, that you might wanna change the intro line from "air-control" to "air superiority", as that's the usual term for it. Plus it sounds even more epic... ;D
I was actually about to say that it looked like a Cybug before you said that's where you drew inspiration from. And that little humming noise is now stuck in my head... Great leg design, it brings out the bug look even more, and the little tail antennae things add to the effect even more so. 'Tis a thing of beauty. The scout ship is also a great moc, the exhaust and engine look great, and the front with those wing like protrusions is just epic. Five stars, five thumbs up, five. . . children. . . . . . um. . . .
