My second and much more accurate attempt at the Warthog, the star of Halo and its sequel. May or may not answer to the name "Puma".
About this creation
"This... is the M-12 LRV. I like to call it the Warthog."
Sarge spoke, and it was good.
Thanks to Halo, I have a new Favorite Vehicle Of All Time (sorry, time-traveling DeLorean, the magic's just not there anymore). Now, on the eve of the release of Halo 2, I realize my previous attempt was a pale imitation of the beauty of the 'Hog, and that this pinnacle of design, this paragon of chaingun-on-a-pickup-truck awesomeness, deserved better.
One of my big objectives for the rebuild was game-accurate independent suspension. While I couldn't shoehorn in rubber bands or springs, the suspension arms can move independently, which would be useful if this thing ever drove on something other than white posterboard.
Are you really still reading this? Why aren't you playing Halo 2? Get to it!
Defiantly better than I thought it would be at first glance. I like your innovation, but it is a tad small. I think you need to re tool the tusks, they seem to be in the wrong place. Other than that it is defiantly one of the most under played masterpieces on MOCpages.
that is so close to being better than mine! i really like everything eccept for the front end and rear bumper. the turret is awesome, the side is perfect and the scale is dead on. but seriously, the front needs a facelift or something lol.
Yep, easily the best 'hog I've seen. You've got the shape almost perfect; I know how hard it is to find a good windshield for this beast! The front end should be a bit smoother, but I won't lower the rating for that. Outstanding job overall.
