I guess everyone who builds Halo eventually gets around to making a Warthog. I know it’s not green, but frankly it often looks more grey than green in the game anyway. There are a few things that I am not completely satisfied with and scale wise it’s a tad big, but overall I’m pretty happy with it.
The wheels originally looked too small so I took one type of tire and stretched it over another smaller tire. This also had the effect of spacing out the tread pattern a bit making it look more aggressive. No active suspension, but I just couldn’t get it to work while still keeping the look I wanted and fitting the passengers properly.
The three barreled chain gun has traditionally been difficult to replicate so this is what I came up with. No pieces were modified…you just have to work a bit to get those three tubes in there. I tried a hose for the ammo belt, but it looked too big and interfered with the rotation of the turret.
You know, I usually get bored with the endless parade of warthogs. It's only slightly more dull than everyone's newest Star Wars Sig Fig. But I have to say that this one is awesome. Brilliant, unconventional design techniques and parts usage. I get what you say about it not being quite right to scale. It's a little squattier than the game design... but so are minifigs, even your spartans, so it works great. Excellent work.
I love the main design but I see only a few imperfections, meaning that the windshield needs to cover the whole entire width of the Warthog. Other than that it seems perfect.
I like it

its good almost to good. im not saying that this isnt the best friken warthog, because it is. im saying that i think you should post a green one because at least until halo 3, the hogs were green. im still suprised saber scorpion even said hes bean toped.
Hi very nice warthog from the game Halo witch i played for the first time some mouth's ago. But sorry i like Gears of War 2 better. Thier coming out with a Gears of War 3 next year or this year i can't wait it's a epic game made by epic games get it.=)
QUOTING Zach Mills "This is by far my favourite warthog i ave ever seen, out of interest what is the windshield piece you use? As i have never seen it before."
The piece is the windshield from the Lego(r) Tower Crane turned upside down (Mr. K used technic pegs to attach the lights to the "bottom") If you look at the 4th pic, you can see what I mean.
Amazing! You know , I must have seen this a while back, because the warthog I'm almost finished with has like the exact same front. By the way Trevor, if you would read Brian's home page, you would know that there is no way you're gonna get instructions.
Brian, your very extremely good at your talent, i would like to say that for me, this is the best wart hog i have ever seen on mocpages..try to view mine and tell me what you think..otherwise, Awesome job!! 5/5 stars!
I'm gonna' be totaly frank with you, and I'm not lying no matter what you think. THIS IS THE BEST WARTHOG I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!! I beeeeeg you to post instructions. If you do I will thank you forever!!!!!
Although I have never made (or played one), I have seen a whole lot of them out there. I think that this is my favorite. I love how roomie and angular it all is. That, and the nose looks much more sleek then other's. It gradually mends in with the rest of the straightness. Excellent job, and this is definitely my favorite Hog out there.
WOW!! when i first looked at this i didnt think it was lego. The size is pretty good so you dont have to worry about that. I think this is excellent . well keep building! please check out my lego creations if you can
hey hey hey great minds think alike i have also used these wheel ideas on my civil hog who cares if its not green i like it especially the window closest u can get without cheating (i reckon my civil hog is pretty good so could u visit my page and reveiw plse):D
Hi! I'm not Really a Halo fan, But from what I know, this waaaay beats the Warthog. The Halo one, in my opinion, looks cheap and to sleek. This one looks more like a "Lets go beat something up" kinda Jeep. While the Halo one's more of a "I wonder if we could top 100 mph on the street?"
awsome warthog and other halo legos. i dont have anthing on my mocpage yet, bu i will soon. so if you like take a look at my page in a few days. i also like the mech too. anyway, could you lend me a hand in making a turret for my warthog? maybe send me some close up photos of yours? or maybe instructions?
...just beautiful. Sigh. I wish I could build half that good. I have never played Halo before, so I'm unauthorized to give accuracy, but I do know that it has to be the coolest jeep I've seen yet. And you have a praise review from Saber Scorpion, so I think that'll do for an accuracy check. Good work, Hats off. Sigh...
*claps* Well done, You nailed it. You got the right shape and basically the right size. The turret on the back is amazing and the vehicle is so smooth. The only problem is the colour, if you could make it green i'd give you a five, apart from that it's remarkable.
First off, Wow. I was thinking about making a Worthog that was different from the rest that I have seen. But after seeing this. I think that no one is ever goin to make one that is this different and amazing. Keep up the awesome work. If you were to make a Pelican i'm sure that it would turn out even better than all the others.
In recent times, Mocpages has been flooded with a multitude of (mostly) horrendous renditions of Star Wars and Halo ships. Thank you for breaking the stereotype. Your construction techniques are impeccable, and your form undeniably a work of genius. Besides some minor cosmetic deviations, this is probably the best Warthog I have ever seen. As good as it is, I am morally obligated to give at least one idea for improvement per review, so if there is anything to be fixed, I would try to move the wheels slightly out a bit, extend the rear body slightly, and put a plate over the exposed holes on the base, between the wheels. Other than that, you have an extremely good model.
Another great piece of work Brian.
I've seen many incarnations of this HALO vehicle but never with this recumbent orientation. A unique and very effective use of off-centre construction and great scaling.
Your SNOT ability is something to admire and with such inspiring creations under your belt like the Asencion battle platform, the HALO Warthog is equally impressive. The innivotive use of components such as the cargo hooks for bumper pylons shows great imagination and methodical construction. Yet another great MOC from the creatrive mind of Mondaynoodle! ;)
Oh boy, here we go! the first thing i noticed was the very absract way its put together, there are almost no level surfaces on there! To be honest i dont think its perfect, but dont worry lol. Ive always tryed to attain srength, durability and accuracy in my own warthog models, but ill change my expectations for this MOC. It is definately the most creative and original one ive seen since 2004! The fact that you couldnt get shocks in there is a bumber but im impressed the thing is able to sit there withour bending appart or something lol. just wait until someone asks you for instructions! that will be a laugh, "haha, NO". another thing a find strange about this is the "stretching" of parts, like the wheels and that poor black cylinder piece, lol. In conclusion, its a good job worthy of praise. 4/5 stars!
Superb Warthog! I really dig the unusual construction, and the last picture with Bob is quite entertaining. Very innovative chaingun. The wheels look vicious. Also, you used an interesting windscreen. All in all it all wraps up to be an excellent and awesome MOC.
Guh... Wow. I really have to agree with Justin, I didn't expect to see a totally original Warthog, buuut... Wow. Just wow. I like the wheels, and thr build, and although I have no idea how you put that beast together, I'ma attempt it, just to find out how you did it mind you, I'm no pirate... well, I'm a pirate fan, and a pirate at heart but I wont pirate your pirate-prone Warthog. ;-)
Come to think of it, I'm not sure I like the hood too much... it's too flat. If I'm remembering correctly, the Warthog's hood sloped down on the edges, somewhat covering the wheels. Yeah I know, "Are you going to pick that zit until you put a hole in your cheek?" But seriously, if there's one thing you can do to make this better, slope the edges. How you'd do that is beyond me... <_<
Holy *insert expletive here*...! And here I was thinking that methods to build the Warthog had been thoroughly explored by so many builders that I'd never again see one entirely new. I've been proven wrong and then some. It's going to take me quite a while to try to work out how the various parts of this thing are held together. I don't know what you mean about the scale being too big - it looks perfect to me. In fact, pretty much the whole thing does. What can I say? Outstanding job!
You do realise that you are destroying everyone else's Halo MOC's out there right? ( In some cases, I'm not to sure thats a bad thing... )
Anyways, I'm not going to put anything else in here, I mean, if you want to read on how well made your MOC is, see my posts or alll the posts that are going to end up on here, on your other MOC's.
By the way, I expect more 'familly' shots. Let's see the jackel, the elite, the hunter, the spartan, the warthog and Bob, all together...Is that too much to ask for?
Oh man, this is the one. Not green? Who cares? The shape is perfect, the scale is perfect and the turret has a great design. If you dont start putting out instrustions for your stuff, I think you'll have a riot on your hands :P. BTW, how do you set up your photography area? Send me an email.
This is the most realistic mini-fig scaled Warthog i've seen so far. The angled construction is especially good, it allows the Warthog to be built with a more angled profile like the real ones. I especially like the angled steps you put between the wheels.
