Bara Magna's Salvation (BZP T-Shirt Entry 2019)
TuragaNuva posted a topic in General ArtA swarm of scarabax beetles scurried across a sand dune, in search of their evening meal. On most evenings, this hunt was uneventful. The beetles would feed and then return to their underground tunnels. But this night was destined to be different. My entry for this year's BZPower t-shirt design contest. There technically isn't a theme this year, but I wanted to do something 2009-based to stay in line with the recent designs (which have all been themed after the Bionicle year from 10 years prior). This was my first time using Clip Studio Paint, so I thought it'd be good to start out with something a bit simple.
Tribute to A Scarabax
Sergei Rahkmaninoff posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsGallery I hope it's pretty obvious that this is Click, Mata Nui's Scarabax companion and sometimes shield. But not only that! Click is also a member here on BZPower (hence the keyboard pic), one of my fellow Corpus Rahkshi players, and a friend of mine. And sadly, he's leaving us for two years on what he calls an "extended service vacation" starting August 5th! I'll definitely miss him, and wanted to give him some sort of farewell present. This was the result, my attempt to create a movie-accurate rendition of his namesake. I think it worked out fairly well, but you can be the judge of that.
So, I've been looking on Bricklink, and the prices for some of these pieces haven't been promising, so I thought I'd open up a new BST topic and see what I can get. One project I would like to try out it remaking the Chronicler's Company, and I only have Taipu's Pakari, so I need some of the other masks. I'd be open to trading certain things, just ask and I'll see if I have it and would be willing to part with it. So, the masks I need from the Chronicler's Company are: Prototype Red Noble Ruru (EDIT: Also apparently in a clock set released in 2002, so some are not prototypes, who knew?). If you have this, I would very much like it, and would offer more for it. Lime Noble Rau. Also more rare for some reason. Didn't it come in the masks packs? Mata Blue Noble Huna. Shouldn't be too hard to find. Dark Grey Noble Matatu. Also in mask packs Black Noble Ruru. Came in the Hafu set, I believe. And while I'm here, might as well look for some other things I'll need soon. Metru Chestplate in Mata Red and Tan. The red came with some Motorcycle set a while ago, and the tan with the Vorox and Thornatus. Throwbot Foot in Dark Grey, Mata Red, and Yellow, x2 Each. Grey came from Millenium Slizer, Red from a Motorcycle and Hockey sets, and Yellow from the Muaka and another Hockey Set Technic Perpendicular Pin Connector in Mata Blue (x2-4) and Dark Grey (x4-6). These came from the 03 Matoran and a few other sets. Metru Blue Great Ruru, from Karzahni. Hero Factory Joint extendors Hero Factory Shield with Clip in Black and Gunmetal, x2 each Nuparu Mahri Armor, Left and Right, in Black. I've been searching for a picture for this one, but it's fine, because it's unlikely I'll ever get it. I've always wanted that white-Metru Blue blended Miru prototype. Just to get it out there. EDIT: Found a pic, it's the top row. Rahkshi head in Silver, from Roodaka Torso from the Diver collectible minifigure. Galaxy Patrol Collectible Minifigure Hazmat Suit Collectible Minifigure (and hose) Ball Joints are also greatly appreciated, esp. light grey classic ones and black ones with the hole through them. Please reply especially if you have the rarer items or a large number of these. I will trade or pay cash. I'll also probably update this page a bit more as time goes on and I find more things I need, but that's it for now.
The Scarabax Library
Click posted a topic in Short StoriesThe massive ruins of a once elaborate structure are silent save a soft, metallic skittering noise that echoes from broken buttresses and collapsed arched hallways. Thousands of years worth of dust gather on the once-polished floor. You look down into the cavern that was once the entry way and see row upon row of shelves filled to the brim with scrolls, books, and tablets. The floor writhes with a million purple carapaces of Scarabax Beetles rushing to and fro with new artifacts or replacing those taken out. A sudden click startles you to look back down the hallway, where a solitary beetle holds a piece of parchment in its mandibles, beckoning for you to reach down and pick it up. A booming voice sounds from below: "Well, pick it up, and read on!" --<>-- I've been writing a lot more lately, and plan to write even more over the summer break, so I figured I'd make a Library topic to start collecting all of that so I don't have to put all the links in my signature. And what better way to do it than Peach 00's little story introduction? I plan to format this a little better, but I'm going to bed right now, so I'll finish that all later. Stories without links are in progress and not posted yet. Short Stories: Lesovikk's Hiatus: A Chronicle About 2,300 words In a brief moment of inaction, Lesovikk's entire team is slain save himself, and now he must cope with his losses while battling Steltan thieves and Rock Lions. My entry to KanohiJournal's Lesovikk's Hiatus Contest. The Journal About 2,700 words The island of Mahri Nui has sunk beneath the waves, and many Matoran have already lost their memories, but Reysa has found his journal locked away inside his sunken home. What secrets may lie in these tablets? My entry to the S&T Contest: Memoirs of the Dead. Fortnightly Flash Fiction Contest Entries: On the Run About 840 words Deep beneath the city of Metru Nui, Borek is working on a heist of a valuable Kanohi mask from the Archives, but the Vahki are already after him. Not that they are the creatures he should be worried about down there. Entry for FFFC #4: Surrender or Run. Warpath: Cold Justice About 870 words Set in an alternate universe, tensions are building between the Toa Mata, starting from the moment Kopaka nearly gets crushed by a careless Pohatu. My entry for FFFC #5: A Canister Ashore, as well as a concept I plan to flesh out a bit more in a series of epics. New Beginnings About 790 words These islanders live in a Karzahni, filled with constant attacks by the Makuta's experiments, and their Toa have already been lost, but new hope is awakened as a canister washes ashore. My second entry to FFFC #5: A Canister Ashore. Plagued Friendship About 780 words My latest story of two Iron Agori struggling to survive the Dreaming Plague together, although the pressure builds as one discovers he is immune and doomed to watch his best friend die slowly. My entry to FFFC #6: Trial By Fire. The Broken Series An eight-part short story saga I'm currently working on of six Toa who have braved some of life's hardest circumstances to come together to form...I'll tell you once I get it out. Seared ??? words Surek is a fresh Toa of Plasma with a mysterious past and terrible nightmares who is afraid of using his element for good. One day, a fiery Dark Hunter storms his village demanding their wise Turaga, giving Surek the choice of defending his village or let it get turned to ash. Shattered ??? words This is the story of Uitad, my BZPRPG character, in the Core Universe. When his life is threatened by a ruinous Rahi attack, the Matoran of his village have no choice but to take him to the most feared place in the Matoran Universe: Karzahni. More to come. Epics: The Builder Chapters: 3 (unfinished) One of my earlier Epics of a Toa who has been enslaved by the Bohrok Swarms and now lives to serve them, rebuilding their bodies and upgrading their abilities. He begins having dreams that may be more than that, memories from a past life, before the Swarms, and he begins to plot his resistance. I plan to rewrite this epic sometime during the summer. Good Company (title pending) Chapters: In Progress With the civilizations of the Matoran Universe and Bara Magna unified, the Toa Nuva see no point in them remaining, and go into stasis. Thousands of years pass, and the only surviving member, Takanuva, awakens to an apocalyptic world where the Makuta have come back to enslave the Matoran and Agori. They have only one hope: reuniting the Chronicler's Company from across Spherus Magna to combat the evil, as well as new threats bent on stopping them. Under the New Sky Chapters: In Progress Only a few years have past since reunification of Spherus Magna, and New Atero is rocked by race riots as Agori take to the streets to expel the "Biomechanical menace" from their homelands. Something drastic is needed to reunify the races, such as the leadership of Mata Nui himself, but the Kanohi Ignika has been dormant for too long. The only way of reawakening Mata Nui lies in his old body, and the only way to retrieve it is a joint venture by both Matoran and Agori. I hope you enjoy these stories and those to come. I'm really excited about my ideas for this summer and hope they turn out well!

Click posted a topic in Bionicle-Based CreationsOkay, with the Lesovikk's Hiatus Contest going on right now, I was doing a bit of research, and found out the Rock Lion actually had a model built, but it never got shipped in time to make it into the Rahi Guide book, and thus, we have no idea how it's supposed to look. Then, that got me thinking, and piece by piece I built what I think the Rock Lion could look like.This is what BS01 says about it: StandingIt was mostly the mane that inspired me to do this guy, and I really wanted to try it out. The head was brickbuilt, since I don't have a piece that would look nice, especially in Tan. The red pins in the mane were actually intentional (as you might notice I put black everywhere else), as they are supposed to represent the combusting mane. Sitting SideHere's a nice side view, I used as many tan pins as I could, just to fill in color gaps. I'm also pretty proud of those paws, since they took me a while to figure out, and came out nicely, but unfortunately, it didn't leave room for the "extremely sharp" claws.Sitting FrontUnfortunately, I had to use some MegaBloks pieces, but it doesn't show much. The Piraka limbs for the forelegs were actually mostly unintentional, because I wanted to make it stand up before I figured out how I wanted to make the forelegs, but when I looked at it, I realized it fits very well, and so I added some tan slopes to beef it up and try to keep the color scheme consistant, one of the hardest parts of a MOC with rare colors like tan.Sneak PreviewHere's a shot of the Lion chasing a Matoran, also a sneak peak to my next project that I ordered a ton of pieces for.Hope you like it!
