The Ihu Attack Force
This set has 586 pieces, 8 minifigures and 2 Rahi, like with the previous attack force set, this is meant to be a battle pack, if this is too large however it can also be broken up into 2 smaller sets: The Frost Wolf attack and the Mammoth Guard. The sets would be split with the axeman and the 2 swordsmen with the Frost wolf and the Captain and the 2 guardsmen (spears) with the Mammoth (Khorei from maori “tusk” and Ko-).
We have the Captain of the Mammoth guard with the signature spear of the captains of Ihu, the armoured swordsman, another axeman with armour, a swordsman with supplies, 2 guard and 2 riders with crossbows although the Frost Wolf’s rider is armoured but carries supplies on the back of his wolf.
So a few of you don’t like the battle pack idea even though I think its pretty cool but based on the piece counts of these Rahi and minifigure costs, it won’t realistically happen. But I don’t care, I’m just here to design kick-a** sets.
The mammoth, the Khorei, with full articulation in all limbs, including the head and turret positioning, this is an improved, higher piece count version of the Rhuaki, with different armor to differentiate the 2 further. This also has the 2 stud launchers on the back but has a larger range of movement to it’s stone counterpart. The standard lever pistons are also present here and I personally think that they add so much to the Rahi designs.
The Frost Wolf was inspired by this Lego Ideas Submission but modified quite heavily, originally it was a bear but the design of Naga from TLOK was much more canine so I just made it a wolf. It has no function but 2 points of articulation in the legs and tail, not being fully posable but still looking quite dynamic, the head is also posable as are the ears and mouth. There is also a small section on the back for cargo such as a backpack.
I’m not gonna rant about battle packs anymore because at the end of the day, this is what I’ve done, I’m happy with it, it looks awesome in my mind and even if Lego wouldn’t sell it, it would be a great set IMO. The Wolf, while not very original I’ll admit ended up pretty good, I can’t really say much though as a majority isn’t my design just a few style changes and add-ons. The Mammoth however is my pride and joy, with it’s tusks of ice, very dynamic posability and awesome lore potential, I think regardless of the canon of the sets, it will remain canon.
As always comments and criticisms are welcome!
And for every comment that mentions that lack of conflict I’ll design a $10 battlepack for a region of your choosing
