MocOlympics Round 1: Karkinos - Biting the Hero's Heal
About this creation
Built for the MocOlympics

About 10000 years ago, a starship landed on Earth. It was this starship which has fostered humanity and started our civilization. Using subtle, psychic signals, it has brought our race to supremacy. Why, then, do we seek now to destroy it? Because it is a parasite, feeding on the Earth, weakening it. Preparing it for the arrival of The Others. You might ask, why have we not observed it until now? It has remained hidden beneath the ocean, constantly avoiding human contact, but constantly using its powers to manipulate us. Now that it's mission is almost complete, it has come up from the ocean to signal The Others. But, it was too early! We still have the capability to fight, and we will fight! Our nations have united and sent a great army of airships to fight the monster. They may try to slow us down with drones, but we will not be stopped. We will destroy it before it can send its signal home.

The Airship:






The Drone:










Creator's Comments:
Well, I'm not so happy with this build. I was really rushed, what with a tight schedule this week. Anyway, if you couldn't tell, this build represents Cancer (Karkinos is Greek). According to Greek mythology, when Hercules was battling the Hydra, Karkinos came up out of the sea and pinched Hercules's foot to slow him down. However, Hercules crushed the crab under his heal. Similarly, in my build, the drone fires missiles into the human assault force in hopes to slow it down. Also, the Age of Cancer supposedly began about 10000 years ago.

Hey Bob, I'm sorry to announce that I am dropping out of the MO. The combination of not being able to think up a MOC for the category and being extremely busy with work, and life in general, over the last few weeks has caused this. I am really sorry, and if you were able to think up a MOC, then I wish you good luck in the next round. Thanks, John

Quoting John Daniels Awesome entry Bob! It appears that we will be competing against each other in round two, I wish you luck. And may the best MOC advance! P.S. Do you have any suggestions as to what to build? :P (all jokes aside) It will be a pleasure competing against you. --John
No suggestions, I'm pretty stuck with that category. I'm pretty bad at smacking at the best of times.

Nice job, i'm really enjoying some of the unusual takes on the category and this has sci-fi action and some forced perspective too - not what i expected from a 'Cancer' build! Well done and good luck with the judges.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist The design of the ship is masterful, an excellent combination of colour and shape. The drone is equally well done, a very sophisticated build. I just wish there was more.
So do I. I was really limited by time.
