    Default Bipedal Strider



    this is the other half of my stormwall conversion. I wanted my stormwall to match my two striders so it is in the process of getting a stormcentaur upgrade, and my friend that lent me his strider for parts gets the clumsy walker

    I'm not quite sure why, but this looks hilarious in the best of ways.

    That was my thought as well, maybe add a Tesla coil projecting forward in a similar position as the AC/10 on the Urbanmech?

    I do not know about this AC/10 urban mech that you guys are referring to but I will assume it looks similar. I have a bit more touching up to do and I will get a better picture up. This is the logical just the logical progression of having a four legged stormwall

    Urbanmech is a Mech from the Battletech game and looks like armed rice-cooker or a garbage bin on two legs...

    This is the first legitimate conversion of this type isn't it?

    I did a storm centaur but I almost regret not doing one of these myself now. The leg pose doesn't give it enough strut for my tastes. I'm saving my wall legs for something else special anyway.

    Hrm. My mind instantly gravitates toward the TF2 Sentry Buster when I see this..

    Nonetheless, it's quite a hilarious conversion. very well done.

    Overgrown squire is what it looks like. I dig it.

    I play Khador, Minions, and soon to be Convergence of Cyriss.

    This is awesome! I love conversions! Its silly and yet in the most epic possible way! It makes sense if you have a storm-centaur!

    @Dais, your storm centaur is what got me moving on mine, and this was the flip side of that, although my SCentaur may be a bit before completion
    The leg pose I was going ofr was a littel off kilter, likes it is having trouble keeping up with its top heavy self, and even two sets of controls are not solving the problem of balance

    the last picture kinda reminds of a Big Daddy, it looks like it's giving the crew a hug.

    me likes this conversion

    Some people need a weekly dose of vitamin D6 to "stay sane." Me, I just need a taste of paint and I'm good.
