About this creation
I have finally posted another MOC! With the Munch in school now, the amount of time that I have to build has been cut nearly in half, but this one was worth the wait for me. Back on February 5, I posted Heavy Metal, my first attempt at a mech, and well, it stank. It has been seven months since then. I have nearly tripled my collection, and feel that my command of the different techniques has grown, and part of my objective for this build was to evaluate my own improvement as a builder. I’m pretty pleased.

So, when I was a kid, preceding my dark age, I was as much a Star Wars fan as I am now. I have commented before that Star Wars provides my largest inspiration for my space MOCs, and this MOC is no exception. When I had seen Empire Strikes Back, the AT-AT blew my mind. It was the first time I had seen a walking vehicle. When Return of the Jedi came out later, my mind had a repeat performance when I saw the AT-ST. I quickly decided that the AT-ST was my favorite of the two. It was quicker and more maneuverable with, surprisingly, comparable weaponry. I even tried to build it as a kid, (and learned a valuable life lesson in failure), and it is the main inspiration for this MOC.

I want to mention the objectives of this build, because of how much they jumped around. At first I just wanted to build something bigger and better than Heavy Metal. Then, I decided that I was going to make something resembling the AT-ST. I quickly abandoned that idea, because I wanted to build something much larger with a bulkier, more heavily armored appearance, which led me to the idea of a my-mech-can-beat-up-your-mech…um…mech. But then Sylvain Ballivet built GIANT KILLZONE WALKER : project 53, and I quickly, (and wisely), abandoned that idea, too. From there, I decided that I would build a “walker,” rather than a “mech.” This was not going to resemble a traditional mech, and I know that there are some mech aficionados out there that would have there clipboards ready to start doling out the violations. In the end, I settled on the idea of pushing the LEGO weight limit a bit with the size of my walker, and equipping the thing with so much weaponry that you could say it was silly. This thing has twenty different gun barrels bristling off of it. It is pretty silly.

Lastly, when I knew that I was going to be pushing the weight limit, I needed a solution to the LEGO hinges; I knew they wouldn’t support what I was planning, which is why I want to thank Jason Corlett in all his brilliance. He built DA-64 War Lord, which, although I don’t know how he actually did his, showed me a way that I could form the shape I wanted for the legs, but still structure it for the support of the weight. Although I can’t credit Jason with the inspiration for this MOC, (though, I’m sure if you look hard enough, you can probably find some influences), he provided a design solution. Now, let me end my mindless ramblings and get to the build. Submitted for your approval, Armageddon Walker.





You may notice the platform. That is only there to make it easier to turn around for the different angles. This thing would like nothing more than to fall apart, so moving it from position to position was a risk I didn't want to take. That being said, I couldn't just build a straight sheet of brick. I had to add some detail.







A shot of some of the rear greebling.







The cockpit with the pilot. He does look angry.



A few shots of the cockpit without the pilot.







The next shots are the ridiculous amount of weaponry this thing carries.



















An external gear like this is not something I would normally add to one of my builds. The entire purpose of this is a tribute to Jason Corlett's War Lord.











This last shot is with the fig out of the cockpit to give you an idea of the size of this mammoth walker.



Thanks for checking it out. Let me know what you think.

Seriously cool stuff. I think I like the legs and feet the best, they manage to pull off that look of being both bulky and able to move with deadly speed. The greebling is, as usual, sweet. Brilliant.

Quoting Mastermind º Mr. Tim, how did you get the legs to angle slightly outwards like that? Is it some sort of joint?
I'm not sure what you're referring to. If you mean the hip joints, they are the ball and socket joints. If you mean from the ankles to the knees, they are four separate click joints. From the knees to the hips are regular old hinges and clips. Considering the amount of weight that I was putting on them, I made the angles that I wanted with the joints and then built the legs around them. Most of my mechs are probably going to be more like statues than playable toys, considering that I want to go large and detailed. I have another humanoid mech that I will be posting soon, so keep an eye out.

Thanks for your continued enthusiasm, John. No, I didn't move the gun. I did the next best thing, got him fitted for a jock strap;) Actually, my collection is such that, first of all, I can't incorporate many different colors aside from the bleys, and, when I build a MOC of this size, I pretty much have to take it down in order to build anything esle substantial. This time, I'm continuing with the, "how much have I improved since then," theme, and am building an answer to my HeavyHand. Stay tuned, we'll see what comes of it. It won't be as inappropriately suggestive, I can at least guarantee that much.

Quoting Jon B That's some build Tim, most impressive! I can see you've really developed your skills further - can't fault this at all. And the scale of it - wicked =D
I am all about learning and improving in everything I do. When there's nothing left to learn with LEGO, I'll probably slip back into a dark age. Luckily for me, the techniques I don't know greatly outnumber those that I do. This particular build was trying to perfect some different SNOT techniques that I hadn't tried yet, and I will admit that some of what I was trying to accomplish is what you showed mastery at with Relentless Fire. Thanks for the comment, Jon, and it's great to see you building again. How's that Lowell sphere space station coming?

Quoting Romany Woodhouse Hey Tim, thanks for your comment! I've been admiring your MOCs but haven't had time to comment. Very remiss of me! This is a sensational walker. Great greebling, perfect proportions. Man, even the baseplate is cool. Keep it up, it's inspiring (not to mention humbling). Rom.
Thanks, Romany. The baseplate was an afterthought just to make rotating the walker easier. I had to distribute the weight of the head equally on either side of the ball and socket pieces, otherwise the head would drop forward, fall off its base, and break. Luckily, I built the head with sturdiness in mind, so every time that happened, (and it was often), there wouldn't be a lot of rebuilding I had to do.

Quoting Cody G Spectacular work, a very clean mech! What did you use for the leg and hip joints?
Thanks, Cody. The hips are the ball and socket pieces. For the legs, unfortunately, I haven't figured out yet how to make something this large and keep it posable. So I used basic hinges there, but that was just to get the shape that I wanted. They are being supported by another part of the leg, or just generally locked into place to keep this thing from collapsing into a pile of plastic.

The leg's look sleek and nicely shaped as well.The design of them is absolutely amazing!!! Very well done.

Hey, Joe. Pick up the Sith Nightspeeder, set 7957-1. It has a lot of nice dark bley 1x4 sloped pieces and that cool armor. You know me and my love for greebling. I can't stop. I seriously have to reign myself in a bit, otherwise it would be a big ball of greebles that I'd try to convince you was a ship;) I was given some good advice by ariklego ...The Director to make all the guns bigger, but my influence is Star Wars, and the design goals there seem to be more the craft than the weaponry it holds. That is my own focus as well. Glad you like them.

Quoting David Roberts First apologies for taking to so long to post a comment on this marvelous MOC. Up to now I'd only seen it on my phone and couldn't really take it all in! To business: let's deal with that controversial weapon between the legs. If you look at real military hardware, sensors and weaponry are often hung in turrets because the mian bearings work a lot more easily this way than if they were stuck on the side of something. I think that the gun is in the right place :) I love the heavy and armoured look of this mech and especially how you've used the different shades of grey carefully and consistently. Everything looks solid and designed for being shot at and not stopping. The cockpit is great (nifty headrest!) and my favourite greebling is around the ankles, don't know why it just is! An impressive build.
Thanks for the comment, David. I really put that gun where I thought it would work the best. Though, I must admit, I wasn't thinking about bearings, nor, apparently, was I thinking much about anatomical insinuations;) I also want to thank you for noticing my attention to color. I was very careful about where I placed the dark bley. I also tried to throw a little black in there to mix it up a little. The cockpit may be my favorite part of this build. It was always my favorite part to work on as a kid, and it's one of those things I haven't outgrown. And the ankles is very understandable. It's one of the parts of the build that looks legitimately mechanical.

Quoting Zach Jones; Master of all Things Mars This is an amazing walker but you must be very careful when mounting a cannon between the legs. See this example by a great mech builder, Zane Houston (most of his work was taken out on the 2011 crash) http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/196762
Zane's build is great minus that one little hiccup. Mine doesn't look like that, I'm sure I would have done something different if that's what I came up with. I put a gun there because it seemed like a functional and useful spot for a gun. It didn't occur to me that it might be even a little suggestive. Hopefully people can see it and value the time and craftsmanship that went into it, and not focus on something that is in complete contradiction to the intent of this build. Despite what others may be seeing, I am proud of this MOC. But thanks for the comment.

Quoting David Alexander Smith Well this is a great grey mech, I must say. There are a lot of nice features, but for me it is all about overall composition. The body/head shape is perfect as is the fact that it appears to be able make a full rotation - very pleasing and good for posing (nothing is more threatening than a static mech turning its sights on you). The echoes of WW1 tank in the head /body shape and plating gives it a distinct style (I notice a lot of reference to early tank design in Star Wars too, for me its part of what I call their believability factor). The placement of the weaponry also follows the same early tank layout. Great work.
Thanks, David. I always appreciate your comments. You know me and my Star Wars influences. It's become a bit of a litmus test for me. When I build something, I am normally asking myself whether it would fit in the Star Wars Universe. It's funny that you mention the tank, because that was one of the ways that I described the AT-ST as a kid: A tank on legs. That was one of my main working goals...to build a tank on legs.

Quoting joshua vance there is no such thing as "too many guns" besides that you did a excellent job
No such thing, huh? That may just be the inspration I need for my next build.

IMO one of the best Mechs I have seen. Every piece syas that its real and functional. Really nice greeblies throughout. I give 2 thumbs up and 5/5.

Very cool and solid design. The greeble work is excellent, especially on the legs and feet. The presentation on the initial page is very well executed. Easy 5 in my book.

Well this is a great grey mech, I must say. There are a lot of nice features, but for me it is all about overall composition. The body/head shape is perfect as is the fact that it appears to be able make a full rotation - very pleasing and good for posing (nothing is more threatening than a static mech turning its sights on you). The echoes of WW1 tank in the head /body shape and plating gives it a distinct style (I notice a lot of reference to early tank design in Star Wars too, for me its part of what I call their believability factor). The placement of the weaponry also follows the same early tank layout. Great work.

Quoting The Timinater ! fantastic! its a fantastic shape, I love those feet in particular! great job! epic greebling!
Thank you much, fellow Tim. I was really thrilled with how the feet turned out. Really kept me motivated to keep building this thing. Oh, and if I were to have a LEGO saying, it would be, "I greeble, therefore I am." ;)

Quoting ariklego ...The Director! Spectacular. Now, as a Mech builder (an unusual one at that, but a Mech builder nonetheless), I'll pull out my clipboard and give you the rundown (this could get long). First off, as a fellow Star Wars nut that up until a year ago has known nothing but AT-ATs and AT-STs, I'll tell you to do something very hard: Throw those puny guns out the window. Those side guns should be at least four times their current size, the chin gun should probably be replaced with, say, an anti-infantry rotary cannon, add a oversized missile pods (perhaps with the missiles partly exposed to help your wife :P)/an AA turret, something like that, and... ehh, the between-the-legs gun is just fine. Second, here's some advice on the joints. I don't know what you used, but for leg joints, try one of those three-stud-long axles with a stud on the end, combined with two peg-hole technic bricks and two axle-hole technic bricks. The axle's stud creates friction, making it hold up rather nicely. Three... umm... *checks my clipboard* Ah, that's it. *everyone else breathes a sigh of relief*
But, but...but it's a walker. Ah well, I knew there would be somebody out there. Not what I expected, though. I was expecting the criticism to have more to do with mech rules that I was breaking rather than just artillery size. You're right, though. The side guns would look better if they were bigger, and I didn't consider the rotary gun for "under the chin," (I like that, by the way). It is definitely something I will look into the next time I throw one of these things together. Also, I would be interested to see a post demonstrating the building technique that you described. I know which pieces you're talking about, but a little hazy on the application.

Quoting Ian Spacek Excellent build! I'm always very impressed with Sci Fi MOCs of this caliber (mostly because I have no talent for them). ;) Fantastic work sir!
Thanks a lot, Ian. I've seen your name around the site, but really only just recently discovered your MOCs. You have amazing skill, and I would love to see what you would come up with if you applied that talent to something out of this world.

Quoting Mastermind º WOW! What an amazing mech! And I thought my mech was loaded with weapons... its nothing compared to this beast you have! You have to make more mechs like these. I demand it! Totally absolutely stunningly wonderfully awesome mech. 100/5 if I could rate it this high. (P.S. after I saw this I'm going to try again at my failed FURY-Class combat mech.)
Wow! You're making demands of me now? HA! I am always looking forward to your comments as well as your latest builds. This particular build was indescribably fun and I can't imagine I will abandon the style. I revisited my mech-building with this one, and I think my next may just be something with wheels and see if I can outdo the HeavyHand. As to your FURY-Class mech. It was far from a failure. Although I would like to see what you do from there to make it better. Intriguing, indeed. By the way, I just visited your page, and I don't know when you revised your intro, but I had no idea you were 13. 13???!!! The builds you are coming out with are fantastic for any age and knowing that you are barely a TFOL has raised my already lofty opinions of your MOCs tenfold. Keep it up!

Quoting John Stahlman Wow! That is HUGE! Super cool chunkiness! Nice details too! And in the main pic, its taking a wicked piss! LOL! ;-)
NOOOOO! You went there;) I always build bulky, for whatever reason. Even when I try to build something a little sleeker, it always comes out as some ogre of a ship, or in this case, a walker. I also am always striving for high details. As for your last comment, I am now contemplating moving that lower gun. I can't be more clear...IT'S A GUN!!! :D

Quoting J Man Great work Tim! I always get excited for your awesome builds and this is no exception! I love the way you built the cockpit and what really did it for me was the rear exhaust greebles. Awesome job! The only thing that I would have done differently is to make the base you put it on different colors than the actual walker. Other than that I love it. 5/5 -J.
Thanks, J. I'm glad you like it. That cockpit design that you see is about the fifth attempt at something that looked right. I've never done that much SNOT work, and manipulating the different pieces in that style proved a challenge. But that's what draws me to LEGO. I love a good challenge. As far as the platform is concerned. My collection is about 95% light and dark bley. I have a lot of yellow tiles and it was my original intention to build the platform out of plates and cover it with the yellow tiles, but I didn't have anywhere near enough of them, so I tried to mix up the light and dark bley to get some contrast.

Quoting Archon Caledonia This is one amazing walker! I however, would disagree with one point, one can NEVER have too many weapons as long as there is plenty of stow area for ammo! A rare 5/5.
Excellent counterpoint! The truth is, I wanted to add a missile launcher to the top, but when I finished it, my wife looked at it and said, "Cool, it has a car carrier." I tore it down. I do love that woman.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Superb! I love the crisp utilitarian design, yet there are still plenty of brilliant greebles. The legs are probably my favourite part, though the command pod is also incredible, inside and out. Even your colour use is spectacularly mottled, you did it perfectly. Excellent work, one of your best!
Thanks, Luke. I always appreciate your comments. The legs were fun, and the quickest part of the build. It just seemed to come easily. The upper part is what gave me the most trouble. I've never done so much SNOT work, so I'm glad you liked that as well.
