Vampire weapon system

Postby darksyntax » Fri Jun 14, 2013 3:29 am

From the Donnachadh Industries brochure:
"Donnachadh Industries cutting-edge Vampire weapon system fires EMPs from from it's twin arrays disrupting the systems of other frames reducing not only collateral damage but also damage to potential spoils of conflict."

From Mech Design Review cortex media stream:
"Long term affects of the EMP arrays' proximity to pilots has yet to be determined."


The rough shape of the two pods came to me in a dream (don't ask...). I have a reasonable collection of lego, but coming up with pieces to work around that large arch (and in consistent colors) was hard; I settled on black but it photographs poorly. Sorry for the crappy pics.

I didn't intend to do another HK-1390, but the pods just fit so well. I really like the arch and the curves so I may come back to this and see if I can get an original frame to emerge.

I almost put this in Weapons & Equipment, but the Vampire system required new arms... whatever; it's here.

C&C solicited as always.

Looks great! I've always loved the texture that those studs give the arches. I think it would work very well as boosters as well as a missile pod.

That is amazingly cool looking! I think you should give the cockpit a different color though, so we can set its shape apart from the huge shoulders. Also, I LOVE the shoulder decals. Are they stickers? They look hand drawn.

Yeah the black sucks for pics (get it? sucks. meh...), but I have a feeling I'll be messing with this over next few days so I might have a more photogenic frame soon.

The dark red and white fang symbol tiles are from Razcal's Glider; printed not stickers (yes!) and 2x per set. I grabbed 2 sets the first time I saw them. Been dying to use them somewhere. This set seems to have been over shipped so I'm keeping my eye or for a sale or clearance to snap up some more.

Is this a coincidence?

Or is that a jab at Stephanie Meyer?

What would this be stat-wise? I'm guessing d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra since it's built around a single really powerful weapon.

This is awesome, the fang insignia is a really nice touch. I can imagine enemy pilots really freaking out at the sight of this.

I made a thing.

Not sure how many cross over between the Forge and Fan Fic forums so I thought I'd link it here.
