THIS IS A NEW VERSION, which fits specs. If you LIKED THE LAST ONE, please remember that this is a new, different creation that will not retain that like. My DA3, Monty Python Mechanised Infantry squad, based on the Wooden Rabbit from "Monty Pythons holy grail." All characters in this also come from that movie. (Or are inspired by characters that do.) enjoy, and please leave a like to help the Milit'ry O' Silly Walks TO VICOTRY!
About this creation

The main photo again of Ye Deadly Wooden Rabbit.

Note the singular wheel and large pole supporting the rabbit's head, this is there for two reasons-

1. To support the rabbit's head and stop the thing from falling over
2. You'll notice it's just a bicycle wheel. I thought it would be funny to have that rather than the large wagon/cart wheels I was going to add.


The front view- my favourite one. I made the rabbit to look funny, and I feel it does that- one can tell it was made in a rush to attack a French castle using nearby deadwood. Also, the rabbit's "eyes" are different sizes (slightly.) so that it looks more.. Judgemental.

Because nothing's scarier than a judgmental rabbit.

Believe you me.

And yes, the rabbit's nose is a machine gun.

And yea, the whiskers are spears and axes.

And yes, the eyes are Windows for a prison cell.


Side view. Notice the small tower and archer.


The black knight gunner- full body, this time.


Gun position 1


And 2


Turret mechanism



All eight figures crammed in.
(1. The guy with the horse on the step (the Frenchman)
2. The tall bloke behind him. (Commander of... Of... Of NI)
3. Blue/white knight just about visible under the tower. (Lancelot)
4. The woman on the tower (other knight of NI)
5. King Arthur. (His crown is just visible)
6. The enchanter they call... They call... He's called... T...T-I...... Never mind.
7. The black knight gunner
8. The guy standing on the rabbit's head. (The driver, Patsy)


Just to prove it is an actual King minifigure not just a crown that fits there.


The two spare wheels


The "driving seat" (drivers have no need for safety! Have courage, man! Face the enemy arrows with a straight face. Die with a grimace. True Grit!)


Another view.

You see that wall area where the eyes are? That can be used as a sealed prison cell.


THE FIGURES


The black knight- gunner

None shall pass? More like none (of his shots) shall miss!


The driver- Patsy,

Weighed down with baggage, as usual. (He has six backpacks on his body, as well as his weapon, a pitchfork, and a flag)


Second in command- A Knight Of NI.

This isn't the captain of the Knights of NI- he'll be in my leadership moc- this is simply a lieutenant.

He has an aggresive looking spear as a secondary weapon, as well as a megaphone, so he can shout NI with deadly accuracy and effective over a wide range. (Over 9000 recorded kills with NI.)


This...is.., the enchanter. There are some... Only some, mind! Just a small group... But still some, who... Who call him... Remember it's just a small group who call him this... Only a fraction call him... They call him... To them his name is.... To this tiny fraction, he is cal-

HES CALLED TIM. ALL RIGHT? THERE ARE SOME WHO CALL HIM TIM.


A Frenchman. The taunting Frenchman, to be percise.

His main weapon is a horse that he catapults at enemies (that doubles up as some food for him. He is French, after all). After using this deadly weapon, he resorts to his close combat, murderous attack. (Over 105 recorded kills with taunting.)

Taunting. Lots of taunting.

Also, he has a red cape, a white cape, and a blue cape.


LEADER- King Arthur is the leader of the Mechanised Infantry squad. Quite a low rank for a King.

But than again, we never voted for him. Like if some wet sod from a river threw a falchion at me and I tried to become king they'd put me in a mental hospital. It's ridiculous. Come and see the oppression inherit in the- okay I'll stop.

Beside him is Lancelot. The smart chap who came up with the idea of a wooden bunny of death.


Another, less high ranking Knight of NI.

She is the only archer in the group and thus stands on the back tower to cover their back, along with the Scotsman and Lieutennant of NI.

You are a GO for DA3 CAT4. This dedication to humor is all very fine and good... but it's not going to earn you more than a pittance of MILPO. Maybe conceder bringing a little balance to your ORBAT with a serious aircraft or torpedo boat?

Looks like it could be a siege tower. Hmmm... the category never said your vehicle has to use motors...

In a category swamped with grey and bland this is a welcome surprise. Creativity trumps all, excellent build! I see you've gotten significantly better since your last romp. ;)

Going with the medieval theme, eh? That's super awesome! I love the thought of these old timey warriors taking out an armored APC. Great work, James.

Great write up James! And mate, you've come a long way since the last DA! This is just the right mix of zaniness and solid building. Great work, and the best of luck to you!

Thank you for your suggestion. I'll bear it in mind and will take action on it. This is only a temporary infantry to get me into the first attack wave, anyway.
