The Peacemaker

Postby Zahru II » Wed Nov 18, 2015 11:36 am

I wanted to a mech that's more unorthodox/utilitarian and I also wanted build something tanky... the Peacemaker is the result of said ideas merging together:

It wasn't necessarily built with Perwar in mind, but were I to use it for tabletop, I'll probably give this to the united colonies.

I'm in love with the way you used those wheels on the forearms, and the elbows look great too. And the sticker on the end of the rail gun. And the whole thing.

Utilitarian looking things always have a strange appeal to them...

I didn't even notice that before, and now it's my favorite detail.

Probably? idk, it's from an Exo-Force sheet. I've yet to peel it off since it's very minuscule. I originally applied it there for this old robo moc from 2008:

It looks cool, but the three legs are kinda strange.

I suppose 3 legs would look strange.
Good thing it has 4.

Nothing wrong with three legs.
Check out ' War of the Worlds Goliath ' when you get the chance.
Your mech has a very stable appearance: like it can climb most anything or be used as a point defense weapon. :omnom:
Do you mind being an inspiration?
I'd like to "borrow" some of the major design features. :guinness:

Four legged mechs are an excellent idea as people like to shoot legs first to topple them.
