Thanks, Man…first I've heard of WW Robot and I was blown away by the artwork I found for it. Definitely the mood I'm going for so now I've got some good reference material.

 

Looks like they're making it into a movie, btw, from what one site said. Hope they can pull it off.

Robot #5 is on schedule…needs a paint job. He's the squad leader.

His screw top was a little chewed, and it's the wrong kind of plastic to sand, but it fit too well, and now it just gives him a beat-up appearance so it's ok. I'll rust it up.

Group shot outside (Before our Northeast major weather event today…possible tornadoes). Better light tho the reds seem too red. Went for a bigger pic this time but it stills seems small.

A card is now in order:

Robot Assault Squad "Junkyard Dogs"

2 armor

3 MGs, a grenade launcher, 1 anti-armor, and the leader with some sort of heavy pistols.

Thanks, T.C.!

A friend really took to my robots so I made this one for her. "The Can"

She runs a gallery so this was pretty cool. I deliver it tomorrow. :)

What did you use for parts on this one?  I have been toying with the idea of building bots like this, mainly due to the World War Robot/Robots Vs Zombies stuff.

Well, you might recognize the central pillar of a CD storage case as the body, Heheh, after a bit. They make great bodies even after the top is gone…just the right diameter. The lower part of the back unit is a bit odder…it's a piece of the side squeeze of a superglue bottle. Screw in the front and wire for the antennae and the leg extras. All the rest is polystyrene from a semi-local hobby shop. The MG clips I squeezed in pliers to get the suggestive pattern and then heat-bent them.

Dude, I'd love to see someone else make some robots. WW Robots is excellent material to mine, if nothing else than for the basic feel. And I think they fit this game perfectly for the reasons you stated. Good luck. Hope to see your work. :)
