Hovertank Battle
As I intended it to be an alternate model, this set uses only the pieces of 75000 Clone Troopers vs Droidekas, and I must say I'm quite pleased with the result, considering the amount (or lack thereof) of pieces I had to work with. The clone hovertank and command post battle a stealth-class seeker droid; one that can swim and walk on any terrain.
About this creation

The clone hovertank, like all three of these small models, is not based on or inspired by any existing vehicle or structure.




When ready to fire its cannon, the pilot deploys landing gear and touches down, giving the tank some support to prevent the kick of the cannon from sending it flying. These legs can also be adjusted to make the cannon aim higher or lower, depending on the target.


The underside of the tank has two large hoverpads attached, as well as its fold-out legs.




The Stealth-Class Seeker Droid, a name I made up on the spot, can scuttle quickly over any terrain and packs quite some firepower in that rotary six-barreled cannon it has on its head.





Its legs can rotate for optimal efficiency in swimming, and its neck hinges allows it to peer above the water's surface and then dart back under again. I just now realized that, coupled with its single large eye, that ability makes it quite reminiscent of the Dianoga (the creature in the trash compactor from Episode IV).


The legs can also turn halfway in the swimming position to allow an additional spike to touch the ground; this helps it travel on swampy or otherwise treacherous terrain.



I was running out of pieces by the time I made this command post, and just barely managed to scrape this together. In spite of that, I think it turned out very well, with a small radar...thing...a thick wall and two blast shields for the sergeant on post.






I hoped you liked this little alternate build; I'm improving my techniques and will soon be posting much more frequently. Please comment; feedback is appreciated! :D

Quoting Admiral Varkov Fantastic work! The different models are each excellent, but the seeker droid's different transformations are most impressive! Nicely done!
Thanks Varkov! Yeah, while I've long since dismantled everything else, the droid remains on a shelf (though that's really only because I haven't had to cannibalize it yet. :P)
