HEY! Are you sick of mechavore flywheels? Yes? ...well**** :V


This is The First Curse. This Afterthought-inspired CW robot has a massive flywheel at the front along with side strips of spikeybois to deal damage from all but the back. Quite chuffed with this, though the caveats are that this was supposed to be a MW but I went overboard, and other setups (100cm solid+4 smalls) were AGOD'ing, hence the Mechavore flywheel.

Ah, well. Quite a happy. ^_^

The colour of the mech disc doesn't really match as is IMO. I'd switch all the parts that are currently yellow to white so it matches a bit better. Plus it would match the colour scheme of the gun it's based on then.

For some reason i think the two spikes on the back are my favorite detail.  Great bot per usual from the mechdisc maestro

By Roboteer's request, The First Curse has had a palette swap from black/white/gold/red to just monochromatic with a slight bit of red detail. It does actually look neater, though, and it hit the 600KG limit as well with a panel replacement. Also gave it more screens from different angels.

Seconded about the yellow.  It not having your usual charcoal and red scheme is throwing me off, but I really liked the yellow

Thirded (is that even a word) about the yellow...now it just reminds me of a Horizontal Splicer...it's cool but plain.

Man, I've been on a bit of a building kick, haven't I? Ah, well. Its been overdue at this point, so I guess maybe it had to happen.

The First Curse is still a CW, but it now has an option to enter HW tournaments with a smaller bot known as Imprecation. The 200KG robot is small, but packs a big punch with a large sawblade at the front to tear into foes. Its sacrificial, but can do some damage before its eventual death.


And here's the newest robot of the lot, Black Spectre. A rambot at heart, Black Spectre can get under others easily with its 2 wedgelets at the front and then slam others around, dealing some damage with 4 slashing teeth at the front. This is meant to have some traits of a vehicular design, hence the rear exhaust pipe and other details.

Special thanks goes to DSC who allowed me to use his Zhuge artwork as seen on the back of Black Spectre. ^_^

I love how Black Spectre just looks so clean overall.  Lookin' good man.  The only thing I have to critique is the Tailpipe.  I get it's mean to be a vehicle thing, but I honestly feel it looks out of place and redundant with as an unstucker, especially with the spikes attached.

Still looks great overall, as with the past few bots on the previous pages.

Really love the extender work on Black Spectre and the panel work on The First Curse. The crossfire esc bot amazes me. Please continue to make amazing machines please  :smile:

I can see what RedAce is saying. The exhaust-pipe, spikes, and the antennae are all a little too much together, but 1 or even maybe 2 of the 3 would be perfect as is.

The angled spinners as a multibot HW looks great. I personally don't mind the lack of colors in them; simple and sleek.

Nice. The car look is good to the point where I'd say that backside is peerless.
