Weaponized Sheep Trial #9-78 [Done]


(Lorenzoderijcke) #1

Hi all, I am excited to participate in the Mad science contest,

here is my idea so far.

Background story.
Weaponized Sheep Trials.

The evil doctor and his minions are nearing the completion of weaponizing their first living sheep. it only took them 9 x 100 trials to achieve the impossible, will they succeed ?

Because everything is better with weapons,


I want to create a scene which displays the doctor and his minions while they attempt Test trial #9-78.
the layout will be something along the lines of the following idea that I sketched.

A floating platform on which the test chamber is secured while the doctor and his minions regulate the process from behind their "high tech" computers, nothing which a bit of duct tape can't fix.

For inspiration I looked at the following images on pinterest.

the scene will look something like this.

The concept is still in a early stage, so feedback, ideas and comments are welcome as always.

Cheers :slight_smile:

This doesn’t feel like a safe experiment with that sheep and all the rockets behind a glass... Unless of course that glass is bazookaproof :smile:

(Lorenzoderijcke) #10

I agree @abeconis

Safety Protocols and budget were cut during last board meeting, but I'm not sure if the doctor is aware of that..
