...You mean the hip joint is SUPPOSED to connect?!?!?!? :o :shock: :o

Here's a partial breakdown to show you how it goes together.

I hope this helps, and if it doesn't then let me know and I will try to make it simpler.

Partially inspired by the Ork's Killa Kans from Warhammer 40000. I don't have much else in terms of backstory, just liked the idea of the pilot in a can (per se)

ImageKreep Kans
RED: d6Rd d6Rd Pistol, d6B Arm Shield, d6Y Spotlight
GREY: d6Rh d6Rh Oversized Battlehammer, d6G Extra Power Cells, d8G No Ranged Weaponry

Hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

Oh, these are nice. I think they could use slightly less dainty feet but I really like this build. Any chance of a breakdown shot?

Thank you Spacemonkey, though the feet do look a bit small, it was a cosmetic choice on my part to use them. Simply put I liked how it looks, but I understand that not everyone agrees with certain details about a build and I respect the options of others because it gives me an excuse to try something different and experiment. (he he :D )

Will an LDD file work? Here's one for you and anyone else interested.

Kreep Kan LDD

Please note that because I was unable to find certain parts, like the 1x1 bracket brick or the spikes used for the hammer, so I had them substituted with other workable parts, but feel free to use what you like.

I hope this helps and if it does not, then please inform me and I will try to make it easier.

This next random was an attempt to make another hover frame. I like the idea of it, but I think I may have gone a bit too bulky for the overall build. I would like to get some feedback on your opinions if possible. Thanks

The Beachhead does what it's name suggests. It establishes a beachhead for its ally companies to invaded into other territories by way of sea or ocean. The Beachheads hover pods allow it to hover over water, sand, and fairly uneven terrain to access the best locations in order to provide covering fire for the invading armies. And should the enemy counterattack it, the Beachhead has extra armor plating to withstand a significant amount of retuning fire.

Great work Artis.
I’m definitely thinking about this as a torso, with Frog’s Neocore arms and legs.
Would be big but epic!

Thank you McKelvie, I've actually used those blaster parts in the same way on various other builds, most of them have been posted here already.


With the increase of C6 builds on Flickr, and Darksyntax's recent tread RU15-00 Flanker Behemoth (C6), I thought I'd try to do a C6 build myself, though I am not 100% clear on the rules for the challenge, I make a rough guess and went with it.

ImageC6 Walker
C6 Walker: d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Dual Railguns, d6Y Spotlight

PARTS
15 x White 1x3s
17 x Black Lampholders
20 x Trans Red Round Studs
TOTAL PART COUNT 52

I think I did this right. Please correct me if I misunderstood the C6 Challenge rules. Thank you

That's pretty neat, Artasid!

There's no set in stone rules, the fact that you managed to build a nice frame out of such simple set of parts is what counts!

This is the base idea behind C6.

The parts were chosen because they were the ones people with older collections were likely to have. But, like Vitor wrote, any build that uses a limited set of parts is cool. You could call yours the 3x3 Challenge (Three parts x three colors). Any way you slice it, that's a neat Frame.

Thanks for the clarifications guys. Though I've been here for a while, I'm still learning new things.

I very recently came across XGundam05s Landmate design:
ImageLandmate MkI Mod by XGundam05, on Flickr
And I liked the unique core build of the little guy, so I decided to build 2 of my own, one which is similar to the original to get my feet wet, and a second one with a few changes to express its customization.
ImagePair of Landmates
Grey: d6Rd d6Rd Combat Rifle, d6B Arm Shield, d6Y Radio Antenna
Black: d6Ra d6Ra Artillery Cannon, d6B Flare Tubes

These are not exactly random frames, but I was not sure where else to post these so they could be shared.

Another day, another random frame. I was testing out a few connection ideas and this one just came together.

Did his right hand piece change between the two photos? It looked like it went from vertical to horizontal.

Actually yes it did. The horizontal clip made holding the weapon easier. I changed it for the unequipped photo so that for anyone interested in making their own can see that it is not restricted to either horizontal or vertical hand clips. Changing hands makes the frame slightly more customizable, which has always been an appeal of mine.

In all actuality, it is the center torso build that inspired this frame, and I am so glad the LEGO Digital Designer allowed me to recreate it. Here's the LDD file for anyone interested.

The Cling-On Battlearmor is commonly confused with that of an alien species found on a famous science fiction show, but this suits origins is anything but alien. Battlesuits and armor are rather cumbersome when transported by conventional means and this could lead to potential hazards while being deployed into a battlezone. An idea to minimize the risks of infantry came in the form of the Cling-On Battlearmor.
On various locations of the armors body are clamps at allow the armor to mount or ride on the backs of larger frames, or on the hulls of transport vehicles, thereby freeing more space for troops or supplies inside the transport itself. Numerous experiments and simulated battles have tested the concept and have proven positive. Many opponents have been caught off guard when they realize that the frame they are about to fight is actually carrying supportive units, and they are quickly outnumbered.
The Cling-On Battlearmor itself is small, nimble and lightly armored, and therefore is advised to work in units as opposed to solo missions.

I see some exciting, sexy articulation going on here. Not only that, but the over all designs of your last few frames are just begging to be played with. Well, well done my friend.
