Looks really good, but you should dye the brackets black.

I'm trying to avoid names of orignal BattleTech Mechs as people know what they look like, and such.. as this guy really doesn't look like any of them.. a Unique, and custom name is needed. :)


As for the personality, My mech would need glasses, and big stomach, and be slightly socially dis-functional.. (although, my wife has been "training" me over the years in that respect) :happy:

Thanks, Connor

Marksmen. i like that, although i think you would need to test the precision of those guns before you can give it a name like that.

what ever you pick, i think it will compliment those guns.

WOWZERS! :eek: That thing is awesome. Love the guns as well! Great work Connor and GDubb. As for names, there was a Highlander in the original Battletech, I think like the 3025 or 3050 update. http://thundernetworks.tripod.com/highlander.htm But personally, I like Bio-Shock, as it alludes to the Bioloid system.

He is looking a bit like "Heavy arms" from the Gundam Wing series. Props on the bot btw!

Nice job. Are the guns machined, plastic build-up or converted from an existing piece/toy?

gdubb2 built them for me. Basicly, they're stock tank guns, he machined the main barrel, and the other 5 are styren tubes with the styrne disks to hold them together. The slip over the main barrel, and everything was painted black. I'm very please with them, and they look great.. Just wait till you all see my ammo hoppers when they're finished. :) Here is a thread with more uplocase pictures of the mini-guns http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/showthread.php?t=3899

Okay, So, this mech now has a name. He's called Odin. He won the Bronze medeal this year in Mech Warfare at the 2010 Robogames event. Unlike my previous mech, I'm going to continue working on this one. I've already got ideas for next time I compete with him.

Thanks, Connor
