MocOlympics Round 5 Tyler Halliwell vs. Giovanni Seynhaeve in "Magipunk" . My entry to Round 5 of the MocOlympics in Magipunk. . For Round 5 of the MocOlympics, I was given the category of "Magipunk." The summary was stated like this:
"Magipunk" Build futuristic yet rough technology powered by magic!
Sounding like something coming out of Kelso's weird dreams, i quickly set to work, on what would prove to be my most challenging but fun entry, or shall I say entries, yet. I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I enjoyed building them. I chose not to [put these in a diorama, because I thought that a diorama with these would look very cluttered and I also wasn't sure how to combine them. Anyway, enjoy!

This first picture is of my first build in this category, a mechanical dragon. I thought that dragons are probably the most magical of creatures and making them mechanical is the epitome of magipunk. This creation was soon born.
Here is the front of said dragon, with its fearsome rider. I am quite proud of how the head turned out although I wish I had noticed the badly angled cheese-slope nose before I wrote this, but oh well.
Close up of head.
The dragon can stand unsupported.
Dragon next to the rider.
This cannon, although not exactly magipunk, was made because I thought that the dwarf mech, appearing later, needed an even match. I finished the cannon late last night and am quite proud of it. It looks so cool. this is also the first time that I have used inside-out tires for something and I really like the effect, although it was a pain to stretch the tires over the barrels. I also really like dark tan. I may keep this cannon together for a while.
The flying ship, "Finklewipper's Fury" was another spur of the moment build. i knew that I couldn't survive on dragon and mech alone, so I made this. it was pretty fun to make and I really like the propellers. Who new Atlantis could come in handy?
Top. the ship flies using the huge propeller things, also known as rigging on other pirate ships. Shhh. You didn't notice anything. And besides, it is magic, right?
I am sorry for the blurriness, but this picture is to sow you how creepy the new Dobbie head is. Or Finklewipper. Whatever.
Now for the big kebang, the mech. His name is "Ol'Stompy." He likes to smash. This build took me probably four days to get right, but I am very happy with the end result. I hope you judges and viewers are too. (He may be going to Brickworld if I can get a magipunk collaboration going.) For this build, I decided that if dwarfs had magical technology, the first thing they would do is created a large mech so that they could feel tall and smash their enemies instead of vice versa. "Ol' Stompy" was born. The base is there to give it some mountain-y feel. I know it sucks.
Back. You may wonder what these ladders are for. You will soon find out...
Legs. they were designed first. this one's for Phipson.
Dwarf Climbing down/up. he needs all of the unfolding ladders to successfully enter.
Well, that's that. I tried my hardest and now all I can do is wait for Giovanni to post. No matter what happens, this has been a blast and I wish all who continue on the best of luck.
