HCC WH-II "Warhawk"
The pinnacle of battlefield technology, the newly improved Warhawk II puts all other Dynamo Indsutries designs to shame. Bringing an unprecedented amount of firepower and versatility to a nearly indestructable armoured chassis, all available on one of the most intelligent AI commanders; it truly is a marvel of technology to last through the ages.
About this creation
The newly redesigned Warhawk II features a multitude of upgrades and new weaponry. The internal power supply of the Warhawk has been significantly increased, allowing it to engage its mobility systems for extended periods of time without the need of an additional power supply.
While the supercompressed diamond armour remains the same though the magnetic redirect system has been improved, allowing the Warhawk to shrug off more energy weapons fire than before.


The most notable new feature on the WH-II is the arms; the original Warhawk had no arms, just weapon hardpoints. After battlefield data from combat against mechs such as the Arkham came back to the Dynamo, it realized that neglecting hand-to-hand combat was a serious flaw in the design of the Warhawk.


An added benefit of having arms is that the Warhawk is now able to equip itself instead of requiring the assistance of other robots. This can make all the difference to the independence of the Warhawk AI.


(Creator’s Note: A nice closeup of the hands, which I blatantly stole from CEO Luiz Carmago. Unfortunatly I didn’t notice it was kind of blurry when I took it.)


(Creator’s Note: A closeup of the newly redesigned shoulders, which provide a much better range of motion and also look much more cool than the old version.)


(Creator’s Note: More cosmetic changes, this time to the side plates of the leg armour. Looks significantly more armoured now.)


(Creator’s Note: Pardon the reflection from the flash, it was impossible to get a good shot of the hips without it. I’m really happy with the way the hips and thighs turned out.)


(Creator’s Note: Round bumps ahoy! I added them to spice up the backside of the mech, which looked a little bland without them.)


Another new feature added to the WH-II was a set of backup optics, neatly tucked away under the heavy armour of the torso ready to deploy in a moment.


The backup eye also comes with a high resolution scanner (The larger eye) that can be used for a number of different things, from scanning enemy units to determine the strength of weapons and find weak points in armour, to a number of non-combat purposes such as analyzing chemical compounds or scanning human faces.


The WH-II also has an expanded arsenal of weapons compared to the original, allowing it to be much more versatile than the previous model.


The “Dagger” heavy laser battery is relatively unchanged, though its power supply has been modified slightly, it retains all the destructive power and accuracy of the previous model. All four lasers can be fired at once or they can be fired one at a time in rapid succession, making it a very versatile weapon.


The new “Hammer” heavy cannon is a massive shotgun designed to provide the Warhawk with enough stopping power to stop a charging enemy mech rather than to deal significant damage although it is capable of doing both. It can be fired in two modes; Burst, which fires a large amount of small projectiles to produce the maximum amount of stopping power and Slug, which fires a pair of large projectiles for increased damage and range.


The “Machete” power sword replaces the bulky Battle Ax, which could no longer be used due to the modified hardpoints, thought it operates in much the same fashion using a vibrating blade to quickly slice through armour as though it were butter.


The “Piece Maker” auto-cannon is a powerful, rapid fire weapon designed mainly to tear enemy infantry and light vehicles to pieces and while it isn’t the best choice to go up against heavily armoured targets it can deal a significant amount of damage with sustained fire.


The “Archer” missile pod remains unchanged; it fires small incredibly agile rockets that are used as guidance systems for a powerful burst of plasma which is magnetically anchored to the missile as it is fired. The small missiles seek out their target and collide with it, causing the plasma to explode violently, tearing through the heaviest armour with only a few hits. It can be fired in a burst of twelve missiles or as a rapid fire stream of missiles.


The “Great Wall” shield surpasses the old Damascus is every way; it provides a more durable layer of armour that covers a larger area and an improved power supply allows the energy shield to sustain much more damage before needing to recharge.


The “Scorpion” grappling claw was designed when the Battle Ax was replaced and while it’s not truly a weapon is can cause a serious amount of damage by pulling enemy mechs into range of a Machete slash or a point-blank blast from the Hammer.


The power core of the original Warhawk is unchanged, it provides the WH-II with a significantly increased power supply, allowing it to boost almost constantly and increasing the already significant mobility to ridiculous degrees.


A new system that can attach to the rear of the Warhawk is the “Indomitable” armour booster, which can make the Warhawk nearly indestructible for as long as it’s internal power supply lasts.


The Indomitable operates by generating a powerful magnetic “bubble” around the Warhawk; this bubble redirects incoming enemy fire, even from energy weapons, away from the Warhawk. The power drain is significant and the Indomitable cannot be active for more than a minute at a time without risking catastrophic system failure, which would result in a nuclear explosion that would vaporize the Warhawk and anything nearby.
(Creator's Note: Inspiration for this is Rai Scrabo's SHINIGAMI systems and the backpacks on Mattia Del Rosso's mechs.)


To give an idea of the versatility of the WH-II, we have provided you with some example of weapon loadouts and their uses.

Here we see a close-combat variant; it is equipped with a Great Wall and Hammer on the right arm, with the Scorpion and a Machete on the left arm. This variant is incredibly dangerous in urban warfare scenarios, especially if the Indomitable is equipped.


This variant is dubbed the “duelist” variant, as it relies mostly on remaining mobile while peppering your enemy with the dual Piece Makers waiting for an opening to dash in and strike with the Machetes. The Indomitable is not recommended for this variant as it relies heavily of staying mobile and the additional power supply would be more beneficial.


This is a highly versatile loadout, capable of dishing out significant damage at any range.


(Creator’s Note: This is my favourite variant; I just really like the dual laser cannons/missiles)


(Creator’s Note: My cat thought I was taking far too many pictures of my lego instead of her and decided she wanted some of the spotlight.)

Awesome Mech! I really like all your creations! I'm developing a mech too but your's is the best hands-down! If it's possible and not too much trouble, can you post a tutorial or building instructions of this mech and weapons for ldd? I'd really appreciate it.

Quoting ThunderT0D :) simpily awesome!!! I love the customazation involved in this, along with the design of the legs... I'm bad at those. This is like a Wanzer in Front Mission. Heard of it?
Yeah I've heard of Front Mission, I'm not terribly keen on it. The mech designs are far too blocky for my taste. The only similarity I see between the Warhawk and a Wanzer would be they're both kind of squat, mine has more curves and slants than Wanzers as far as I can tell.

The best tips I can think of are take your time, don't be afraid to experiment with new ideas and trash ones that don't work for you and always, ALWAYS take the time to look carefully at what everyone else is doing; a lot of the best ideas come from seeing something and saying, "I can do that." and then putting your own design touches on it.

Quoting Jesse Long Wow, if this is your first attempt at mecha, Neil Dynamo, then all that I've got to say is that you've got a bright future ahead of you! Also, I'm a fellow LEGO MOC builder with a kitty, too. Your little calico is such a cute little kitty...(^_^)
It's not my first but it's definetly my best. She is a little cutie isn't she? Hard to imagine why anyone would leave her in a box on the side of the road, but that's where I found her.

Oh dear god... we're doomed! THIS IS AWESOME! (and kick Mecha ONE inside the endless pit)Every little detail is very well executed: the armor curves are very sexy and the weapons are brilliant, specialy the way you attach it to the arm. The blades are gorgeous. Absolutely fantastic. Oh, and thanks for the credits! But feel free to use any ideas you might find interesting in my creations.

Quoting Rai Schrado I have to say that you have talent for building unmanned mechs. The weapons are fantastic, the increased armor can only be called beautiful, and the overall impact is much greater than the original. I wonder how well my Shinigami Demon would measure against one of these.... anyway, Great mech!
That would depend entirely on if the Warhawk was backed up by kitty or not. Kitty would win hands down.

Fantastic build, Neil! I think you've got a winner on your hands here. I love the upgraded weapons and how they hardpoint to the arms. And that new back equipment sounds like a tough nut to crack. ^Blub^
