Vanguard by Freedom-01 Vanguard by Freedom-01
Its acutally an old mech I made. I found an old pic that never got posted on flickr so I recently uploaded it. So it gives me an excuse to upload it here.
Link of the same pic on flickr. [link]

Here is the link to the original main pic of the mech. [link]

*ReneAugustus (I dont know how to put the budy icon in the description.) Just pointed out that it looked like it was from Metal Rage. Yes it was supposed to be the Vanguard unit from it.
Forgot all about that.

thought I'd seen this on flickr...unbelievably, far more advanced then what I could make with LEGO (but then the parts have progressed since I last sat down in amongst the bricks)

You saw it on flickr already? Huh, cool.
The bricks have changed quite a bit and keep doing so. Maybe you should sit back down with Lego again at some point.

erm, think so unless it was a different pose/angle but I recognize it...I'm intrigued by the Lego digital designer, have it installed but yet to have a play - probably the closest I'll get to a pile o'bricks :)

Yea, my flickr account has the old orignal pics of this guy a different angles.
Digital Designer is only so good. Don't get me wrong that it's not good. But it's not as good as building it in real life where you can do more than what LDD lets you do.
But hey, at least you're giving Lego a chance again!

Woah. You know about Metal Rage too?
A friend and I really got into it but were greatly disapointed that they will never release it.
I told him I would build the Vanguard from it to the best of my abilities. The three barrels was too tricky for me so I went with 4.
I totally forgot about that game for a while.

Thanks man. I got to change my description now.

I've been so deprived of mecha games, and too was clinging onto that hope too :< Such a drag that they didnt release it, I wanted it sooo bad lol.

I wasn't sad when Exteel first shut down. But looking back now, its so sad! There wasn't a mecha game quite like it. There were hardly any mech games to begin with!
I play CosmicBreak right now which is okay, doesn't require as much skill as Exteel does. But oh well. What are you gonna do.

I never played it, it seemed ok. I have a friend who is obsessed with that game, he's really good actually. I myself tho ussualy stick to console games. Gundam, Ghantom Crash, mechwarrior, and of course Armored Core. Ohh god I can't wait for AC5 :^;

Yea. The console games are much much better. But I don't have an Xbox 360. I'm saving up for one though. Armoured core is the first game I want to get for my Xbox, its just so awesome. I haven't heard of them doing a sixth game( For answer could be considered the 5th.) but I wouldn't be surprised.

I see a machine that is slow and ponderous, heavy on the armor and supreme on the firepower. The details are really helpful and I like the stance. Tired but still going.

It is actually supposed to be a fast mecha. Most effective on flat surfaces like roads and such.

Such is the way of most mechs. Only certain models are meant for a multitude of enviroments, such as Zentraedi battlepods.

i like it, but i would rather have the guns point more upward
interesting shaping of the legs and main body, and (clever)PU for the guns

Freedom-01 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
The guns are pointing down as I it worked quite well with the pose when I did it. I think having the guns up here would be a bit distracting. But it's not like they can't go up.
Thanks though.

i say that because it would help the pose more (create more negative space -> creating a better silhouette -> faster read of the object)
