AR-4 'Huntsman'

Autonomous robotic assault chassis. Liquid hydrocarbon powered with a direct chemical-to-electrical energy fuel cell behind the torso mounted ammunition box. Head mounted 15mm caseless autocannon firing double stacked 15x38mm armour piercing rounds. A lower mounted weapon fires specialty 15mm munitions. Rear mounted drum contains 1500 rounds of 30mm ammunition for the main weapon. The right arm is joined directly to the weapon with a forward sliding attachment point for one handed firing balance. The lower legs are protected by the flexible armour that would cover the whole unit when in the field. The armour has an active electrorheological layer that stiffens immediately under kinetic impact. But is otherwise highly flexible and relatively light. The feet are equipped with sensors to detect the surface and they, along with the environment calculations and movement processing from the CPU, decide whether to deploy either one or a combination of three traction methods. First is surface mechanical grip from the articulated toes and heels, followed by retractable pins that fire from the heels and have an articulated barb to anchor to the surface. There are also setae pads to generate intermolecular force with hard, relatively smooth surfaces. When this grip is combined with lightweight but rigid construction and an unloaded weight of 700kg, along with the prodigious output from the fuel cell, the unit can exert a huge amount of g-force and move with great speed and agility. Max burst speed is 200kmh with a sustained rate of 80kmh fully loaded. Total height of 3.2m

  4. Brilliant! I have to ask about two details? 1st: Is he hanging an unused detachable hand on his hip and connecting his right arm directly to the smart-gun like weapon? 2nd: I realize he is looking over his left shoulder but what is that flat/laptop looking wedge mid-cranium?

  6. It is very awesome, I like best that he has a place to keep his sandwiches atop his slender heed.

  9. Fantastic work. I'd pay good money for an artbook based on your mechanical designs.

  10. Cheers!

    Jon, the arm is indeed attached directly to the gun, with the hand stored on the body.
    The array on the head is radar/sensory tech of some sort, I just thought the shape looked interesting.

  12. Just wanted to pop in and say thanks for providing an endless supply of inspiration! You have a lot of fans in the world of LEGO geekdom :) Don't mean to spam your post, but this is a little impromptu build I did with my sons as I had your page of the NBM book open beside us :D

  13. The past is gone and static. Nothing we can do will change it.scarlet blade gold, the future is before us and dynamic. Everything we do will affect it rs gold, You laugh at mescarlet blade gold for being different , but I laugh at you for being the same.

    Let`s write that letter we thought of writing "one of these days Tibia Gold, just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have Tibia coins, don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you sro gold.
