Since the other Mechaton thread about rules mods is drifting, I decided to start another one about what was being discussed in that thread.

Tomahawk is relatively new to the game and is looking for designs for frames, especially ones with exploded views or parts lists, so I'll start by sharing a few from one designer who's burst onto the scene recently.

Shorty Chassis, Flex Chassis, and Swingarm Chassis, these are all from DivNull Productions. I haven't built any of them yet but they look very functional.

Super-quick post to just say thank you, Mantisking. Your last couple of threads on Mechaton were enough to convince me to drop the $6 on the game, and I spent a couple of hours last night putting together my first frame. It was hella fun!

The result of that first build was pretty average, but all I had to work with was small Millennium Falcon kit and a $10 AUD dump truck. Tonight, I'm raiding the parentals for all the Lego of my youth!

Congratulations and welcome to the party! I was lucky and someone demoed Mechaton for me at a housecon for my introduction to the game.

The midi-sized Falcon? My first builds were made with a couple of the small creator kits and a pick-a-brick cup.

I gave away my childhood Lego to a friend's kids, all I had left was a bunch of baseplates.

I could kiss your carapace!

I'm assuming this is for the exploded view, since many of the others don't have "skis" on their arms. Can you tell me how to build it's weapons?

In THESE pics of the Aln-11 frames, can anyone tell me how the weapons are made?

I'm not real creative on my own, but if I can recreate what someone else did, I can usually extend off of that easily for my own stuff.

BTW, how would some of the more "futuristic" Brickarms weapons looks on some of these "micro" size frames?

Looks like there's also a 1 x 1 tile connected to the thick ring plate for the "ammo magazine".
