Here is my entry for the Battle Beasts contest on the Brickarms Forums. This thing was a whole lot of fun to make. It's one of my first big hard-suits with a crazy/wacky story. Scroll down to see the story.
About this creation
Here is the story for the contest.
The year is 2047. We are losing the Afghanistan war. Most of our soliders are injured or dead. We need help, so we told our scientists to build us a machine that will help us win the war. They said they could do it. They studied for months trying to figure out what they could do. They found out that if they take a regular fish, that they could inject them with certain chemicals to make them very strong. The scientists kept working and working. They then came up with a very strong and intelligent fish. But, then there was one problem. They couldn't figure out how to make it breath. So they built a helmet full of water over it's head. The helmet is very strong and if hit by a bullet it will bounce right off. They then built it a very large hard-suit. The hard-suit had a lot of armor and technology. They mounted the fish on the head part of the suit. They turned it on, and it worked great. So 1 year later we deployed it in Afghanistan. It did it's job very nicely. So we made 5,000 more.
2 years later.
We are winning the Afghanistan war now. Our machine works great. There is only one problem though... When it sees a fishermen it goes crazy... We are hoping it's just a glitch. We hope to fix the issue as soon as possible..
Long and wacky story is long and wacky.
I really like how the back turned out
Here is the fish with his helmet on...
... And without his helmet.
I really like how this section turned out.
Here is the gun.
Here are the Brickarms used.
The gun uses a ammo chain and a minigun barrel tip.
Here is the U-Clip used, hopefully you can see that.
That's all for now! This thing was a lot of fun to make, I hope to make more hard-suits that are this big.
Thanks guys for the rates and comments! I appreciate who actually took the time to comment on this. Even though it's still kind of frustrating to see that I didn't get to many rates/comments. I spent weeks working on this. Oh well. Next time I make something like this again, I would like to see more rates and comments, stuff like this takes a long time to make.
I like it

Hardsuit for fish??? This can be invented ONLY by mad scientist. 5/5 I love it so much.
This is brilliant Iceman! I really like it and it looks like it took time and thought to build. I think the reason why this is leaving the homepage is a little different to the rest I mentioned. Yours disappeared because more mocs were added to it. Mine as well as two others were very near the top but mysteriously disappeared. Somebody is unfairly trying to get their creation back on the homepage.
