A bit of an odd MOC this time, I don`t know what was going on in my head when this idea came out.
About this creation
The old castle was once many years ago home to the one of the great king Leonardo`s ancestors, but since the kingdom has progressed the castle was forgotten and taken over by the rebels in secrecy as their base.
The rebels were greatly struggling to overthrow the higher powers and with the aid of a new found technology of mechanics, the leader of the rebels (the Cyclops mage) along with the blue warrior put forth the idea of a secret weapon of such. The rebels began construction of this on their castle and after several months of work, the creation was finished, although nothing much changed to the naked eye.
Luckily underneath the castle there were large veins of coal and oil, which was greatly needed to power 'The Mechanolith' as they called it. All they needed now was a pilot for controlling it. My sig fig was chosen to pilot it via a mental connection with the machinery, it was now ready to take action.
Some weeks after it`s dispatchal the villagers living nearby the castle noticed suspicious activity going on around the castle when some villagers occasionally walk by. Eventually the town folk thought it was a good idea to check out what was going on, having no idea of what would confront them.
What did you guys think of the backstory? It`s the first time i`ve actually created a story for one of my MOCs so i hope it was alright, i do plan to make a whole plotline with my fantasy and medeival MOCs starteing from Darkwood lighthouse.
I`m not sure where i got my inspiration from for this MOC from, i guess it was a combination of steam-punk, pacific rim, and my dreams, it seams most of my MOC ideas come from nowhere.
The construction of this was from the mech base up and then the legs, until i had the idea of making a base for it so it could camouflage into it`s surroundings.
Probably not one of my best MOCs, this is only my forth major MOCs here on MOCpages. so I`m still learning, so yeah any tips and tricks are more than welcome.
Hope you liked this, more MOCs coming soon. Brick OUT!
Also if you want to see some cool short bits of stopmotion with the gears in this click here . (I didn`t put it on the page because it pretty much shows everything you`ve just seen for most of the video.)
Hey, interesting idea. :) I'm pretty new here too, but I was thinking maybe if you made it kinda like a transforming castle. like make it so instead of staying in one solid chunk, with arms and legs sticking out, make it so the actual castle morphs into a mech. idk just a thought. :) Anyway, overall it's a good build. :D
