Born in a small Vorox village in Bara Magna, Tortan was raised as a sand hunter, and quickly learned the ways of the blade. His village was attacked by Dark Hunters and he soon became a Gladiator. He managed to win his own freedom and quickly left, journeying to Moto Nui with the intention of starting again, however his only real skill was combat, and he was drawn back into mercenary work. After learning of the Order of Toa, Tortan gave up his mercenary team and began a life in which he fought for the innocent. Due to his shady background, the council doesn't trust him much and he was assigned to the Toa Tek as a tentative probing of his abilities and loyalty. Tortan was initially just an add-on, but his natural leadership soon kicked in and his team now follows him without question or hesitation.
About this creation
Occupation: Hired mercenary working for the order of the Toa due to a low budget and lack for a better team leader.
Title: Lord Tortan, Team leader, Toa Tortan, Gladiator, Mercenary
Mask: None on his face but two Rahkshi heads on his chest armor. No power though.
Weapon: Dual swords made from the stingers of other Vorox he has defeated in combat.
Quote: "All I've ever done is fight, but now it actually means something."
Story: Tortan is stoic and cold in person with a decidedly animalistic temperament, however he has formed close bonds with his teammates, particularly with Kordak. He has been criticized in the past for allowing his squad's personal interests to seriously derail entire missions.
Okay, lets get this party started. Here's an awesome front view / pose.
Legs. They're the same so you're not missing anything on the other one.
Weapon, again, the same on both sides except for coloring (which I like)
Waist (would have liked his waist and torso to be bigger, but i didn't have a lot of pieces that were this color) very poseable.
Right arm. Bigger than left arm.
Stinger. Again, not as detailed as i would have liked. I will probably modify him again later, but honestly, i think he looks pretty sweet overall.
Full left arm with sword. He's so epic.
Aaaaand the Backshot.
Alrighty, that's all folks. I got an actual camera to take pics with this time instead of just my ipod and i'll be doing it that way from now on since it looks so much better. Judges, i hope you like it! C&C is appreciated.
So, I have obviously been getting a lot of complaints on his chest, and after tinkering with it for quite some time, I think I've found something that works better! :D
Here's the full body shot. I modified some other stuff too.
Your score: 7/10 This is a very good MOC, but the color scheme is a bit to complex. If possible, I'd try to eliminate as much black as possible to make it look better. The build is sound, but could use a bit of improvement, for instance, he has a hole in the middle of his belly.
Thanks to all of you. Hes still a work in progress but i think i like this version a lot so far. I appreciate all your input profoundly and am actually working on his next version now, as well as a few otuer projects.
Not bad Chaz. Not bad at all! :D The body design is very unique and the tail is a ittle dcecent. Those are really the only good things about the moc, but good enough for an average score, overall. Your Score: 5.25/10
