Hammer Drone design contest!

Postby Battlegrinder » Sat Jul 19, 2014 7:01 pm

Over the past week or so, I've been working on the design of the heavies for my ground troops, and have had a hard time getting the look right. While I was watching Iron Man 2, it occurred to me that the hammer drones in that movie would work perfectly for my faction, both functionally and story wise (as I conveniently already have a sub-faction of robots as part of the Protectorate). However, I'm having some trouble getting the design right, and so have turned to you guys for help.

Requirements:
Match the movie drones as close as possible, specifically the Army and Navy drone variants.
Must be no larger than size 2, and would ideally be exactly size 2.
Must possess sturdy and posable arm/leg joints.


LDD files would be preferable to pictures, as it will be much easier for me to work with LDD models when I'm designing the final version (which will be either a composite of the various submissions and whatever abomination I manage to work up, or the one Scythe builds).

I'm posting this in both bricks and LDD, and submissions can be made to either thread.

(I don't mean to be rude this time around, I promise! :wink: )
After seeing the original Hammer Droid pics you posted, I could try my hand at making some new arms for it.

I really liked the rest of the droid, though.

Glad you like it, and thanks for offering to help with the arms, they've been really tricky. I actually just finished building the prototypes of the missile and CC variants. Still working on a color scheme.
