Grymn Walker Image updates
« on: October 26, 2011, 09:05:20 PM »






A bank is a place where they lend you an umbrella in fair weather & ask for it back when it starts to rain. 

most mornings i wake up grumpy.   sometimes i just let him sleep.

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Nice design  :applause: I really like the look of this. Two things bug me slightly - the two round bits (headlights?) on the front of the carapace bit look a little like eyes to me - I keep seeing a sad face. And are the 'hip' joints a bit close together? Looks a little splay legged and like walking may be awkward.
Looking forward to getting one or two  :D :thumbup:

On second thoughts with the way the lower legs work maybe I'm wrong about the hips.

I can see a face in it, but the face I see is p[$$ed off.  So far I think it's sweet.

That WIP is much better than the original because it has a stocky look to it. I think the original version was too tall (at the time it was shown it didn't but now I've seen this one, it does) and more geared to a human sized pilot/army.

Armoury wise, I would prefer to see energy weapons than anything else so that the internal power-supply can charge the weapons and that would mean no need to re-load (and hence no need for ammunition).

Pulse weaponry for both roles...a heavier one for anti armour (more barrel length and bulk to the body of the weapon) and a multi-barrelled wide focus one for anti personnel.

As an after thought (a bit like the Jotun arms pack), I can see this little beast with arms...maybe call it a Grymn Gorilla and have quite long ones...mind you, that would be the sort of thing I'd be happy converting myself (but only in limited numbers).

I really like this little beast so far and am looking forward to seeing where you go with weapons :mrgreen:!

'Switching to targets that go squish' or somthing like that and it always makes me chuckle when i think of it

its my amazing photoshop skills................ in real life the entire walker is made from blu-tak and i have photoshopped it to look like greenstuff and plastic.  only problem was i ran out of time which is why one of the feet is still blu-tak

I just said to Kev "they all like your Grymn Walker dear"...to which he replied "they would like it more if they knew it opened up, there is a hinge at the top so the front part lifts up so you can buy it as a solid body or one with interior detailing."

For me, the interior detail isn't that important...but for the proper painters and diorama builders it is a great idea :).

I saw the hinge on top (is that a track link?) but had no idea that it was functional!
