Elysian Drop Sentinel
A Sentinel walker modified for Air Drops. I believe this is also the first bipedal 'chicken walker' to ever be specified as a paratrooper. Yay!
About this creation
So, my question for Waffle's The Contest For Best... was 'what makes you mad the most?', or something like that. I'd been considering abstract concepts, like bad drivers, the American political system, Mario Kart, the English Language, etc. I decided I'd build a Sentinel to help get the creative juices flowing (Wal-Mart doesn't sell it anymore, so I have to make my own) when I realized something: There are those builds that, for me, are a nightmare. You know, that one build when the forces of fate conspire with your bin of Lego to hide that one piece from you? And then the forces of gravity attack with sledgehammers and such? This was that build for me. It turned out great, but the build itself produced that sense of 'The universe hates me, and this angers me. I'm going to finish this thing so I can hold it aloft and yell "Ha! I did it!".' So, long story short, the thing that angers me the most is the when the universe conspires against me. So now, bear witness to the fruit of my persecution! /pretentiousness

Caution
The following MOC is rated M for Manly. Proceed at your own risk.







Behold! The Elysian Drop Sentinel in all of it's walker-flavored glory! I'll let Forge World explain what it's supposed to do:
Drop Regiments do not have access to many of the heavier armoured units deployed as standard with less specialised Imperial Guard regiments, and their Sentinels often fulfill this role as well as their more common scouting missions.

Elysian pattern Drop Sentinels have a more compact design to allow them to be accommodated within a Valkyrie Airborne Assault Carrier, or carried beneath a Sky Talon. The Sentinel also features an integrated Grav Chute mechanism to decelerate the Sentinel's fall during the final stages of an aerial drop.


So as you may or may not have read, this is a Sentinel built to be dropped on people. You have no idea the sadistic glee this fills me with. I also refer to this as reason #47 that 40k is better than Halo. (I mean, come on! They're basically air dropping an AT-ST!)
/cackles evilly

Ahem, anyways... The sentinel is armed with a twin-linked Heavy Bolter. This tends to make a big mess of most things like lightly armored vehicles, people, trees, etc. It's bipedal, has a single pilot, and is about as graceful as an ostrich with a wooden leg.
Especially people.

My model also happens to have the balance skills of your uncle pat after he's had too much to drink. Or that stoner cousin who's name you can't remember. I've been told a real Sentinel is better at this, having had years of practice.
Did you know the average Imperial vehicle has been in service for 4-5 times longer than it's operators have been alive?

we have the less interesting side. This side is also nonlethal, but it does house the door. That's kind of important, right?
It opens too!

And completing the 360 view, we have the front. It looks a little odd from this pic. Also, it's important to know that the cockpit is set slightly to the right, instead of dead center.
Also, it has floodlights to illuminate the victims!

The leg! I have no idea what that bley grille is supposed to be though. I'll ask my subconscious later.
Porcupine!

And now the most important part, the footes. Footeses are used for breaking the walker's fall and breaking your ribcage. What a variety, right?
They are also known as clompy bits.

Ah, the Heavy Bolter. This thing is pretty much standard issue for Imperial vehicles. This is like the regular Bolter, but on so many different performance enhancement drugs it can't see straight. Not that it needs to, however. All of you squishy little humans have the same reaction when hit with this thing.
*Bang**Scream**Bang**Splat*

This little bit here is part of the grav chute system that allows the Sentinel to be dropped on top of your loved ones. Based on my knowledge of Grav Chutes gained from Gaunt's Ghosts, that also means this thing basically has a jetpack. That's right, it can fly short distances and JUMP. You're screwed on so many different levels now it's not even funny. Little Walker Foofoo hoppin' through the war zone, shootin' up the cultists and landing on top of their heads" /end creepy song
Thank you, thank you! I'll be here all week!

And this is the vent system, where the walker releases all the excess heat and the exhaust. Note how compact it is.
All the better to kill you with, my dear.

Now we move on to the cockpit, which houses our pilot. I'm almost positive that to operate a Sentinel you need to live on a diet of coffee and whatever can be crammed into your uniform's pockets.
I'm sure that can't be healthy, by the way.

That's right! The door ACTUALLY OPENS! That means the pilot isn't confined to his walker for all of eternity! Huzzah!
Who actualy says 'huzzah' anymore?

Well... This is the front of the leg. What more do you want?
Chicken legs!

And finally, I leave you with this dramatic-ish shot of the Sentinel striding offscreen to go stomp on your car. Hope you're insured for psychopaths in medium-sized mecha! (Speaking of which, I hear Geico is offering that now.)
I'm so sad to see it go...

Well, that's it for my Manly Sentinel. Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you've enjoyed yourself! If you still have control of your limbs after the stomping, a comment would be greatly appreciated.

Oh wait! One more thing!
For Waffles:

The 'Dem Frogs' Assosciation of Abnormal Conveyances.
Okay, shameless attempt to earn bonus points over. You may now return to your scheduled viewing schedule!

Because you said I was wrong about this being medium sized :P However, I do have to thank you for making me do some more research, or I never would have found out about Imperial Knights. They're like Titans, only bite-sized!

Quoting Carter W. Yeah. You're missing something. Mostly, it's the TITANS! All races have titans, btw- but only Forge World sells them. The walkers that Games Workshop sells are classified as 'Small.'
Not every race. The Tau, Dark Eldar, and Necrons all lack a Titan. They may have a rough equivalent, but they do not have a large, bipedal mecha. That being said, Titans are classified as large mecha. From there, they are placed on their own sizing scale.

Quoting Carter W. Oh, one other random thing- You called this " A medium sized mecha." No. A Warhound pattern titan is a medium mecha. This is the itsy bitsy little walker you mechs step on. Seriously.
I'm speaking in comparison to all of 40k, not just the Imperium. The Tau battlesuits are what I would refer to as small, and probably Killa Kans, with this and larger Ork mechs as well as Eldar War Walkers occupying the medium sized spectrum. I'm probably missing some things on my scale, but it should give you an idea.

First off, hilarious write up. I love all the commentary and the build was ingenious. So, for the judging. This is the final entry, so hold your breath. For creativity, you get a 10 out of 10. The way you interpreted it was hilarious, and I think that everyone gets mad about that one. Also, a paratrooper chicken walker wins epically. For quality, a definite 10 out of 10. That ammo belt thing was awesome too. Overall an excellent build. And even though that is an odd attempt at bonus points, I'll let team Maple Syrup have 1 bonus point. That leaves you with a score of 20 out of 20 with one bonus point. You can breathe now. ~Waff

Quoting Carter W. Hey. I just was thinking about this, so here it goes; I read further down that you wanted a multi-melta. I think an acceptable one can be made from that bolter-take the drum off of the side, and cover the attachment point, and add a hose to the rear of the weapon, and you'll have a pretty nice multi-melta.
I've been thinking about that myself. It'd still need a slightly smaller drum though, in order to be accurate to my source. I'd also have to switch up the front barrels a bit, to really finish it up... @Cody: Thanks! The Bolter design is one of my best.

Quoting Evil Shadow Another great MOC from you. Nice design, even better idea(its nice to see more W40K stuff in lego form). now you only need few more drop troops and few heretics to test your drop sentinel on them. Maybe you could do multimelta variant? Excellent MOC, one of the best from you, cheers
Thanks! I'll definately have to put some drop troops together and give them all a little vig to live in. As for the Multi Melta, this thing actually should have been one. It's a definite possibility though.

@Christophe: Yeah, guardsman tend to be on the less humorous side of the coin. Doesn't stop me though. @000: It just means you have to move faster than the 'stuff'. This is, afterall, a fast attack unit.

@LegoLord: Thanks man! The feet were something I really wanted to get right, as they were wrong in my original Sentinel design. @Anders: Thanks! That drivers compartment was probably the most difficult part of the entire build, and I'm really pleased with how it came out! @Louis: Now that you mention it, it does. Which is odd, considering it's Imperial Guard and they're insufferable pricks when it comes to discipline. They'll shoot you if you aren't standing up straight enough during parade. @Mr. Lego: Thanks, and sure thing. @Carter: No, but it can get up on the roof and peck at it like a chicken attacking a car. It might be able to scratch the paintwork. @Finn: There's a certain irony to that. I have this thing, and I've been wanting to buy the kit while you have the kit and have been wanting to build a Lego version. @Master Shifu: Thanks! I've said it before and I'll say it again: The write-ups are the most fun. @Matt: /flourish-y bow/ Thank you kind sir. I do what I can!
