Steampunk AT-RT
Sorry, Brady G., just couldn't resist. This is my Steampunkified AT-RT. One of the things I like to see in a Steampunk creation is believability. So, I'll explain how this creation would work in the Steampunk age:
About this creation
>To accelerate, driver opens the valve on the hose between the boiler and the engine.
>To brake, driver reverses accelerating action.
>To fire, driver squeezes lever linked to musket trigger.
>To reload, driver kicks a lever under the right foot, tripping a pair of spring-loaded levers that simultaneously reload and cock the musket.
>To steer, drive applies pressure to one of the spring-loaded levers beneath the feet. Doing so removes the gear pertaining to that 'leg' of the vehicle from the motor's drive gear, thus preventing that 'leg' from moving while the other leg produces an imbalanced propulsion, turning the vehicle left (with pressure to left lever) or right (with pressure to right lever) Releasing the depressed lever allows the spring to force it back into contact with the motor's drive gear.
>The walker is propelled when the motor turns a gear(s) that move the chain(s) attached to the legs up and down. To maintain stability, the leg elevation with each step is minimal, resulting in a shuffle - like the wind-up AT-STs found at McDonalds.

And now, on the the sales pitch!

Why choose Legoarts?


^Armament
Our walker mounts a long-range musket in an easy-to-use position, and claws on the 'feet' make fence cutting a breeze. Not to mention squashing, slicing, and decapitation*.
*Legoarts is not responsible for loss of men due to fainting at the sight of gruesome scenes, including those that include blood.



^Armor
Two heavy wood panels and a split iron plate on front protect any and all drivers on our walker, ensuring that the enemy must move in front of the walker's main armament in order to shoot at the only weak spot: The eyes.



^Visibility
A split front armor plate and focused lantern combined with a pair of sights means that the driver of our walker sees first, aims first, shoots first, and, ultimately, kills first*.
*killing first does not guarantee survival, it only increases chances of killing another man before being killed yourself.



^Propulsion
A state-of-the-art steam engine drives a pair of gears that move the chains attached to our walker's legs up and down.


The Minifigs:
Staempunk ARF Trooper, whose visor wouldn't stay on for the main photo shoot; and Steampunk ARC Trooper "Wolf".

Quoting Thomas Lockwood It looks believable without the explaining, which speaks for how well this is done. A great first moc in the steampunk theme.
Thanks. I really tried to capture the believability in the pics. I think for this MOC, the most fun part was editing that main pic.
