    I can't decide between the tractor of death or the robo-head.

    ...it's probably a good thing that it's not up to me to choose the winner.

    How is it not within the bounds?

    I'm not too familiar with the Hive's rules but unless you have something against tractors...
    It's a Vehicle! And besides it has built-in AI so it can manouver without a driver. You got away with the glass windows on the RDZ Mechs. :::
    The blood ain't exactly part of the machine but if that's where I break the rules I'll remove it.
    I did get inspiration from Stephen King's novel about the lawnmower but he portraits it in a very different way.
    No legs, no problem.
    And thank the gods for that, I might lose some points there in the lack of good shaping but it's easy enough to make out.
    It's not like I just took a picture of a lawnmower and painted on some spikes or anything, I drew the outlines from a picture of one and THEN painted on some spikes. That's hardly anything to disqualify me for.
    Been there done that.

    Awaiting responce.

    Okay, I think I'm going to do some little drone thingy, similar to the model WILL made (or at least tried to) in the robot modeling competition.

    Time, SeruK, time. You say 'old'; but the concept/image in question must have been assembled within the time period of the contest -- ie, 1st to 30th November.

    In conclusion: SeruK's entry is actually fine, he just wrote it all wrong. Silly foo'.

    This is mine.. Might change might not... like.. I might add 2 arms in the back and might change some cannons and stuff. The missiles were erased 30 times because I either couldn't get the 3D right, position correct, the correct size. I'm kind of a beginner drawer... Never ever drew a complete drawing.. I'm hoping to finish this one. I hate color at the same time... So.. does it have to be colored?

    If you need me to edit something for rule breaking just tell me

    SCANNED

    Here is a W.I.P of my bug mec.

    I like the posture I put into him, arms all curved down, he is looking down, wings all out, his spiky hair is fluttering up.

    His arms are are very flexible, but his hands eather have a pointy dagger, or a sword, which he uses to chop his prey in half.

    His hair is spiky, Japanese style. He is a oversize bug, so he has big wings to carry his big body.

    I will work on the details now, and keep revising it till it looks good.

    Now, now, yours is technically a transformer, or one of those robot guys in those old arcade games. Y'know the ones.

    Here is my WIP pic....Note that it is only in the gesture work stage.

    Taking a nod from my Space Quel'Dorei line of ideas...and some ideas from the "Inspiration" thread.

    I present....The Alpha version of an Elven Construct.

    A mechanical creation smithied on one of the Arcane Forgeworlds, that produce advanced golems....albiet highly advanced and far above the primitive things used by the Mages in the early years when we still lived on Azeroth...during the Post and Pre Lichking periods.

    Hmm my idea is completed. Now I just have to draw it out, but to amke it so no one can copy my idea, I will put it down. I was thinking up something like a Flying *gasps* Airbase, that can create airplanes on the go while flying around the battlefield. It has a large cannon under it for destroying ground threats, and an A-A Missle Turret on it to destroy enemy air. There, now you know.
