    STAHP.

    Hey, that's neat. Reminds me of Dr. Robotnik's Egg-Flying-Doohickey... Except minus the flying. :p (though that might be a cool Alternate version).

    Pvt.Toma is nice, but too symmetrical, too much symmetry is boring.

    Lol... No verbal response, just a picture of it standing up in super-mech-mode. As if to say "Symmetrical, eh? Where's your god now?" :p

    eh to be honest, that tiny tiny little chimney at the back does not really say 'steampunk' to me.. I say stick a friken church organ on his mech, belching smoke, and that'll be steampunkish enough :xxd:

    I thought it was a joke on a gorilla steam-punk robot, with that funny steam pipe being the tail.

    Curious now to see if I am just completely off the deep end or if I am just brilliant at deductions of odd humour :wink:

    Ugh...after seeing some steampunk images, I change my mind, I'll be doing another. It will be a Steam Golem, almost same to my old concept but bulkier and improved.

    EDIT:It's my friend's fault. He asked me to make a Blitzcrank-like model :)

    Hmm I kinda have to agree with Misha, there is no stempunk feeling to it, the same with Pvt.toma's model. They look like regulary mashines and I've I saw them unconnected to this thread I'd never guess them into this contest's theme. Which is, a bad thing I guess?

    Don't take me the wrong way, the models are great but you still have to do sthm. to add the steampunk flavour.

    Very interesting. I like where it's going... But I think my biggest concern with it, unlike the others, is the 'presence' of those weapons. This guy already looks like he'll be pretty small, but in-game those tiny guns and miniscule saw-blade will (I believe) just disappear. Is there any way to "Warcraft-ize" those things? :p

    they (the weapons) aren't meant to be detailed, they are more just there so I have an excuse to use yellow orange red and blue spark emitters during attack, and to have a spell animation devoted to each effect (taser for vehicle stun, drill for pierce damage, blow torch for fire damage, ect ect) to make them bigger isn't just not necessary, them being small is crucial to burrow being able to work where the arms subtract inside the head. I wont be including guns on this model, this model is a melee attacker only. even down to the suicide because its base model started life as a goblin land mine for a reason


    and if people keeping telling me its not steam punk, then you haven't played dishonored. dishonored is pure steam punk, but everything's powered by whale oil burning to make electricity. MiniMage told me about this contest, and I asked him if a star wars buzz droid, red alert 3 terror drone, sc2 terran widow mine combination made wc3 goblin with a bit of mix from tim burtons ''Nine'' would be good for this contest and he said it'd be great. ''steam punk'' doesn't HAVE to have a chimney with coal and water with a furnace running, its a style of machinery and art, powered by many means, whether its whale oil, electricity, coal, oil, steam, magic what ever, if you guys are too rigid about ''steam punk'' requiring STEAM to power every models locomotion here your not going to get the diversity to make this interesting, steam punk is a way of describing machinery and machinery's looks..... like how wc3 goblins models are often steam punk. il be adding small exhaust pipes later to the back of his head that also subtract into his head for burrow to work, just give me a chance guys sheesh! its not even half done!. and this is my first contest ever so.

    Icewolf055,
    reminds me something, lol.

    Kellym0,
    I definitely agree with you, in this thread i've seen too much comments very narrow-minded about what steampunk should be or should not be... I think all models presented there have something related to steampunk, i think it's hard to give a clear definition of this word...

    Anyway, here is another WIP, with goblins now:
    [​IMG]
    I think the mesh is now mostly complete.

    Kellym0,
    Seeing your model seems to be such a sophisticated thing, maybe it would be a good idea to show some internal machinery (like what can be seen in expensive watches), since steampunk often rely on showing complex mechanisms. What do you think?

    bascialy its everything lol

    you mean like mechanical gears? I wasen't planning too, burrowing is pretty important to me I really want my model to have, but I may infact have some places to stuff som gears, thanks for the suggestion I may just do that

    Yes, actually i think the gap between upper and lower body could be a good place to show some gears inside.
