Dr. Uggnoy, the brilliant young Grunt who has a knack for mechanics, has composed another masterpiece for the Olde Covanente Armye. My first entry for the steampunk category of the 2010 mech contest. Enjoy!
About this creation
The thick armor keeps the pilot safe, while the quadrupedal design provides both stability and manuverability, perfect for any kind of planet.
The Locust is also equipped with a powerful steam cannon, capable of scalding the flesh off of any adversary.

The legs are the perfect balance of mechanics and armor, providing power and durability.

It's Dr. Uggnoy himself, taking back his precious Locust!
Take that, Spartane scum!
The Doctor and his prized walker.
I like those Halo-steampunk versions and this is an excellent version of the Locust. Besides, it's nice to see that there people who show some respect to Unggoy. I think they are completely misunderstood beings. :)
Quoting Yuri Fassio
Fairly nice, but I can't help thinking that those "empty" bionicle connectors as feet give it a rather incomplete feeling.
Yeah, I can see where you're coming from on those, the feet of the actual thing aren't very impressive either. I should have added a reference pic to show everyone I'm not just a minimalist. Haha, thanks for the input, Yuri. =)
Amazing! truly astonishing! i never knew grunts could build such marvelous machines! you have a thing for steampunk that i'm starting to like! maybe i should try building something steampunk.Maybe a banshee!
