I'm officially back! And I thought I'd start it off with an addition to Mandy Roberts' post apocalypse theme, "The Colony Chronicles." She has informed me that she intends to start a group where the backstory will be explained, and where others that wish to build along the theme can post their stuff (after all, that's what a group's for, right?).
About this creation
The quad walker is used as an advanced scouting and ambush weapon. Its footpads and wide stance mimic that of a desert reptile, preventing it from sinking into or sliding across the sand that covers the majority of the United States. Lightly armed, it carries only a rear minigun and a tail that is, in fact, a flamethrower nozzle. The flamethrower utilizes more orthodox fuel than the Apoxium used to power the walker. The quad walker's main attack tactic versus Diseased (the zombies) is to gallop across the dunes, trampling the monsters beneath its feet and then char-grilling them with its "tail."
P.S. I would like to apologize for two things: first, the lack of humor in this MOC. I seem to have misplaced all 206 of my funny bones, and I can't find them anywhere. Thanks for your patience during this slight technical problem. Second, the pictures. My computer is having trouble uploading the larger sizes, so bear with me until I can straighten it out. I will repost them. Eventually.
I had expected it to be the approximate time in which you were back, apothic ape! I hereby do declare and pronounce this moc within the epic and creatively ironic standards I have come to recognize in your work. The only flaw I see is partial and most likely inconsequintial: The open-sided cockpits. I hate to think what would happen if a diseased were to climb up into the operating areas. But, do please resume the humor whenever you can. It is quite entertaining to observe your ramblations. Brick thou and all that.
