About this creation


















Model Type: Sentry
Faction: Imperial
Registration series: SC/2611/G
Weapons: Twin chain guns
description: Found on the battlements of many Imperial strongholds, the Sentry class mecha are designed as anti-personnel type mecha. They don't need to be fast, just able to spray any unidentified target with enough plasma charges to turn them into space dust. Slow but incredibly well armoured, they could take a direct hit from most artillery fire.
Known Weaknesses: heavy and slow they are sitting ducks against long range weapons with armour piecing capacity.

History: A stalwart of the Imperial war machine, Sentries have been present at most camps, mobile command posts and even aboard starships, for as long as there has been an Empire. Used to deter ground troops and civilians, anything less than a mech usually doesn't live long enough to regret encountering one.

Their gold and white colour scheme is favoured by imperial forces, however camouflaged variants can often be found for specialist missions.

Creators notes:

I've had it in my mind for some time now to start building new factions within the 25th century mech universe. We already have some alien, pirate and Earth defence force designs and this was an attempt to create something different.

The principle influence here was function, this thing had to be quick. Speed over fire power. The colour scheme originated from Dr Who, where the imperial Dalek faction was briefly gold and white in the episode "Remembrance of the Daleks".

Combat and space units to follow when I've brainstormed some ideas.

What I do want to do differently this time is to create "super scale" mechs. That meaning mecha that while in the same scale as other 25th century micro mecha, are BIG, I mean city or battleship sized. The imperials former battle tactic was force, force and more force, so they seem like the perfect faction to demonstrate some REAL fire power.

Quoting Shadowa Heartfelt The only flaw I see in the bulkier mech, is the connection between the upper torso and the hips. In brick, that style hinge would simply collapse and fold on it self with all that weight on the top. Click joints are good for staying in place (often). The hands on the big one are nice though. On the thin one, I wouldn't think a single peg could hold that gun up, especially with that style joint. Sorry, I'm not an avid fan of Digital Lego builds due to the fact that there should be a virtual table top or floor, and it should make you have to make it be able to stand up on the table/floor so that you would know it would be able to function in real life builds. Yes, I know it's on the computer, but what if someone wanted to pay for what you built on LDD, and they bought it, thinking it would stand up and have ANY sort of play-ability to them. That's why, I say, if it is supposed to fly or hover, it should have some sort of stand built to go with it, or use a bunch of 1x1 clear bricks that is in a well-balanced place that can hold it up and with a sturdy base to make sure it won't fall over and break. Trust me, I was very upset at a build because they had photoshopped the image made it look like it could stand on it's own, and when I tried to build it the same way and stand it up, it fell over and broke. Just try and think about things like that.
technically true, if the waist joint was actually being used as a joint. It is fully folded forward and unable to bend further thanks to the chest piece. It wouldn't flop forward as it is as far as it will go already. I'm not sure what you mean about the gun, as far as I know it would hold in place via friction if nothing else. The foot design is intended to distribute the weight evenly, however it is conceivable that it might require some support to stand in other poses.

Very nice design. It has a rough and tunble look to it. And the feet are unusual, but cool. I see you also made the foot spurs on the lighter model. I like how it looks. ^Blub^
