ARMADILLO
I sat down with the intention to build a quaint seaside cottage. Well...boys will be boys.
About this creation

Half the carbs, but the same full-body taste.


The yellow stripe strikes again!


Before you ask, Yes. MTEX is pleased to announce that the Armadillo will remain consistent with the energy goals set forth in the Accipiter project, and will therefore operate solely on clean clone-based fuels.


The hatch is in the front, so that after penetrating obstacles, the Armadillo can release its load of soldiers ready-to-fight.


Comfortable seating for six, plus one driver and gunner.


If that quadra-dose of noob-tubing grenade pipes is still not enough boom for your liking, you can always add this optional autocannon.


As is evident, the Armadillo blends nicely with its natural environment of toppled buildings and shattered McDonald's signs.

EPILOGUE------------------------------

I set out to create a new APC design that would revolutionize the industry, set a new precedent for armored configurations, and shake up the modern-day world as we know it...

...all to realize at the end of the day that I had just "Matt-isized" the Gears of War APC (Hence the name).

Well, what can I say. We win some, we lose some.

Haha, I know, I know. I've been packing and moving and unpacking and painting and then tailgating college football games on the weekends, and my build time has suffered. I am working on something new though.

Quoting Zane Houston Anyways I want to say thank you for not only making awesome builds, but making them very entertaining as well. Great job!!
Why, thank you very much, good sir. I do try to break up the monotonous overly-descriptive write-up. I find it keeps people reading, and I'm happy you took notice. Your write-up on the TITAN (which finally appears to be recieveing some of the respect it deserves) was entertaining in the same fashion - what with your comments on corporate sponsorship and all. Keep building 'em like that, my friend, and you'll be the next big guy on campus.

first of all matt, awesome build. all of your creations in this theme really are amazing (i apologize for not commenting on all of them... maybe someday). Secondly, one of the things i like most is your large vocabulary and sarcasm, and in this case the noob-tubing and crushed mcdonalds signs were enough to get me to comment. Anyways I want to say thank you for not only making awesome builds, but making them very entertaining as well. Great job!!

Quoting Chuck da Vinci The insinuation that it also fights against unhealthy levels of carbs, and the metaphorical 'victory', as it were, over the temptation of McDonald's is genius.

Oh, dude. Dude, dude, dude. This thing is 100% pure (recycled) awesome. The insinuation that it also fights against unhealthy levels of carbs, and the metaphorical 'victory', as it were, over the temptation of McDonald's is genius. The hatch, though, should not be in the front; too vulnerable. That said, I love the rest. Six wheels=always a winner, and I suppose that even as a stand-alone universe-crusher, it's a pretty cool deal. Most Sweet.

Anywhere. This one here for instance is a blended mix between the Batmobile, the GoW APC, other various MOCs, and my own styling. I just mash it all up in my head, fiddle with the Laygoes and eventually these things just kind of appear.
