Doesn't #2 break the rules by revealing the builder in the splash (even if it's a red herring)?

I mean, they all break the rules in some way. #1 is too big an image, and #2 and #3 don't have inside shots.

I find it both ironic and funny how all 3 splashes have a Ballista... might as well create a Gametechmods Archery contest XD

#3 don't have inside shots.

Isn't in the ruleset this month. If it was then *someone* should print every rule like well-organized people do.

There's no need for inside shots when most of the entries are extender bots and stuff. It's really only a big deal for bits that have to follow a specific meta to be legal.

I don't know how I know, but judging from the angle, there's a burst piston inside #2.

Thoughts and Opinions:
1. Hello again darkness my old friend, I mean DSC sorry. Jokes aside, both bots are pretty well thought out and look like good pieces of art, including having a working turret for the ballista and a working articulater for the battering ram. Looks like you got another BOTM victory in the bag.
2. Well, you tried. It's pretty much very plain and not particularity very interesting enough visually, despite what you tried to base the design upon.
3. Why have two siege machines when you have both of them plus a castle. Anyway, Both bots plus the castle bots are good attempts at making a siege machine. Though I do feel that there's some bits that are missing like adding a little more detail into the bot. However, I love the way how the splash was set up to look like a castle siege. Wait a minute, do I see no other than the good doctor himself. This has now overwhelmed me with joy.

I never said lots of stuff was not allowed, so its perfectly fine, for all i care someone coulda posted an NSFW pic

But yeah, i do that most of the time, i belive that, or just leave rules out because i dont need them(like evento uno). Loopholeism.
