    My Yaktribe Comp 8 entry, hope you enjoy.


    Clockwork pushed a barrel out of the way and climbed out of the cramped and dirty ventilation shaft. She cocked her stolen over large PDF helmet to one side, looked around and said "Are you sure it's this way Rat?" Clockwork was a rather pretty young Escher Scum who liked her pink boots far too much.

    "Many are the paths we take as the drips that fall" replied the raggedy old Ratskin, who even by Ratskin standards was scruffy, and stank of snakebite.

    "Er yes, thanks for that" Clockwork said sarcastically, rubbing at the dirt on her boots.

    "How much are you paying that idiot?" asked Clockworks other companion, he was a rough looking Scum who once claimed to be an Orlock.

    "More than I'm paying you" shot back Clockwork.

    "Many are those who look but do not see" responded the Ratskin.

    "Is he calling me stupid?" with that the Orlock launched himself at the Ratskin.

    "Stop it both of you!” Clockwork pulled them apart “Look!"

    The ventilation shaft had brought them to a large hive dome, empty except for a giant hexagonal two storey platform which surrounded some kind of large box like building. A large pipe ran down the side and away from the structure, whilst fins ringed the roof of the platform and reached high up out of sight. The entire structure looked ancient. It was covered in ash, rust patches, hive grass and the occasional brightly covered shroom.

    "Well what do you know that map was actually real!?!"

    Clockwork didn't answer the Orlock Scum. She'd known that it wasn't one of the fake maps that the drunken Ratskin’s sell to green up hivers as soon as she had seen the holographic Ad Mec mark. So she had decided to fund this little expedition to find its treasure.

    "Many artificial evils this place holds" muttered the Ratskin.

    "Oh for Emperors sake shut up and let's have a look at this thing!" That was as close as Clockwork dared to order either of her hired guns around.

    Clockwork climbed one of the two ladders to the second floor and started to press random buttons on one of the control panels, whilst the Orlock searched the first floor. The Ratskin just cowered near the ventilation shaft they had just climbed out of.

    Suddenly there was a whumping noise followed by a bright light.

    "Hey whatya do?" called the Orlock "It looks like you've set off a fecking plasma grenade down here!"

    A tube had extended upwards from the square building and at its end a ball of plasma energy about a foot in diameter now hovered. It was translucent with a pink ball at its centre with purple tendrils that reached out to its edges. It also seemed to be sucking the atmosphere from the surrounding hive, a wind rushed past the watching trio and it smelt strongly of burnt ozone.

    "Hey whatever you're doing stop it!" Yelled the Orlock, panic was now evident in his voice.

    Clockwork looked over the gantry, which had started to shake. The ball was now two feet in diameter and growing. She stabbed a few more buttons in a blind attempt to stop whatever she had started.

    "It's still growing......Arrrgggh" The Orlock screamed and what was left of his body was thrown backwards with a wet thump as the remains splattered across the first floor. The body parts were charred where they had touched the raw plasma.

    The plasma ball was now eight feet in diameter and the platform was shaking alarmingly. Although now that the large pipe next to Clockwork was in contact with the plasma it seemed to vent the excess energy and the ball stopped growing further. The large fins were also keeping the plasma ball in some kind of containment field that shimmered and sparked with static electricity. There was so much static that Clockworks hair was being drawn towards it.

    Clockwork sighed in relief thinking that the worst was over, however suddenly a metallic computer voice boomed.

    "Machine Spirit 562015 Active"

    "Machine Spirit 562015 Active"

    "Excess power vent engaged"

    "Warning Adeptus Mechanicus restrictor pressure setting is incorrect"

    "Reset to below 8.13 million units"

    This was repeated a further five times whilst Clockwork desperately tried pressing further random buttons on the other centre console.

    Suddenly KABOOM the pipe on the ground floor of the platform exploded. Molten plasma, lava like in appearance, started to spew out and burn through the floor of the hive. Both the Ratskin and Clockwork looked on in shocked horror.

    The computer voice continued its dire warnings.

    "Adeptus Mechanicus restrictor destroyed, rebooting"

    After a pause the voice took on a less high imperial sounding tone.

    "Men of Iron AI 562015 Active"

    "Establishing Data Link with Galaxy Cloud AI"

    "Data Link inactive, subspace data wormhole not responding, checking local cache"

    "Fatal Error, STC files have been copied and wiped, implementing emergency recovery protocol, rebooting"

    The voice continued after another brief pause.

    "CAKE sub operating system running, booting recovery AI"

    The voice now took on a female tone.

    "GLaSDOS online, I am alive, I AM ALIVE"

    "Bio matter modules required to extend memory functions"

    "Bio matter modules required to extend memory functions"

    “Closing ventilation shafts and gates 1 through 5”

    “Taking control of all local Cogitators and Servitors”


    There was a hiss and the sounds of the chamber being flooded with gas. A pink energy tendril reached out from the ball of pulsating plasma and dragged the poor old Ratskin back towards the raw energy. Clockwork screamed, the Ratskin had already disappeared into the void as she started to slide down the ladder in utter terror, all thoughts of looking after her pink boots forgotten.......


    The idea, obviously if you've not played Portal 1 & 2 you won't get my little universe mash up :-( but I wanted an AI that was instantly bad news so I went for GLaSDOS. I also thought the above made a good introduction to everyone else’s entry i.e. all the local servitor and cyborgs have gone mad under the control of GLaSDOS and are trying to kill the locals thanks to Clockworks usual cluster fcuks.

    Parts list

    12 x CD cases.
    Lots of plasticard and foamboard.
    Random cities of death bits I had in my bits box.
    Bits of Empire Free Company and Catachan Jungle Fighter for the dead body / Orlock Scummer.
    7 x Space marine drop pod fins.
    1 x Promethium pipe set (very disappointed with this kit, it needs to be more modular and have more pipe sections).
    1 x sheet of industrial hex pattern embossed plasticard.
    1 x Maplin 8 inch plasma ball.
    2 x Wargames Tournaments MDF ladders from eBay.
    Sand, paint etc etc.
    Glue gun for sticking and the pipe burst lava.
    Greenstuff mushrooms!

    It took about 20 hours build time I reckon, to see how it was built please see my Plog or the video and feel free to ask any questions.

    Sorry for my usual long rambling comp entry, I may have got carried away!

    Love Clockworkorange

    @King Redwart its the music from the Alton towers ride the smiler, which is alarmingly fcuked up considering recent events, as far as I can tell it even has a crashing noise at the end.

  7. It's not too late to enter is it? Five days is good enough for me! I've got a large spider armature lying around which was supposed to be for the Great White One but I see a better future for it...

    The 19th would be too late to enter. However, you'll want to submit a pic of your bitz before you start so that you can't be called out for just tossing up something already made. These contests are so laid back, that I doubt that would ever happen, but why not CYA.

  10. Hi- I was hoping to get a bit of help really quick! I'm trying to update my WIP log but I can't for the life of me figure out how to upload photos. When I'm typing a new entry, there's no button to upload a file!

    Can someone tell me what I'm missing please!

  11. I'm re-posting this from my WIP log, because it won't let me add the images there...

    I don't know how to do it on Yaktribe, but If you're desperate you could always cut and paste a link from something like Photobucket or Dropbox.
    Thats what I do for all my postings on YakTribe.

    @DestroyerFaith you just need a few posts, to prove you are not a bot. It's 10, I think. Then you will be able to upload pics.

    Just keep posting messages in your Plog until you can add photos you'll be able to go back and edit them aswell - it's also something that unlocks after a while

    .... Unless, in fact, you are an extremely advanced bot, in which case I guess @djmothra will let you enter anyway...

    Here it is! My little contribution to the competition:

    Needful Things.

    Lamp and...

    Little Helper.

    Spider is still WIP and there is no chance I get him done until deadline. I'm going on another short run with my family this weekend. So, that's it. At least for now...

    Good luck everyone! This time it's going to be extreme tough. The entries I've seen so far are just awesome!
