Hi! Sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while. Life's rough sometimes and takes you focus off the things that are really important, like LEGOs! Seriously, though, I'm glad to be back, and I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.
About this creation
Now, on to the MOC:
This walker is based off of a post-apocalyptic short story I wrote as a school project. I'm considering posting it sometime, so if you're interested, let me know. Now, here are the specs:
The Survivors are the largest colony left in the United States. Due to the lack of many species of insects and other pollen-spreading animals, most of the country is now desert. Hence, this vehicle. It is a sturdy, low maintenance exploration walker. It is lightly armed with an automatic slug thrower and an anti-personnel missile pod. The same material that powers the vehicle also supplies ammunition, interestingly enough. The Survivorís chemists have developed a new element that is to all intents and purposes a metal. When it reaches its melting point, however, it releases a gas that makes an excellent substitute for steam. In fact, it takes two times as much water to operate a machine than it does using the new element, which has been named Apoxium. The left over molten metal, which is more of a by-product than the Apoxium, is piped to the mass driver cannons and magnetically accelerated at a target. Unfortunately, due to Apoxiumís high density the walkers can carry only a small amount, which limits their scouting range considerably.
