Romulus by Keithwormwood Romulus by Keithwormwood
Bearing the symbol of the fasces, the Romulus was introduced as an AI controlled lictor. Lauded as a solution to lictor corruption and resultedly an end to magistrates being assassinated by their own bodyguards, Romulus models were manufactred in droves.
Catastrophic accidents led to a return to wet-ware plebian lictors, who often now find themselves defending against assaults by decommissioned Romuluses directed by competitive parties who also hold imperium.

I don't know if this was on purpose, but the Gatling gun arms themselves resemble fasces.
Horrika Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012
lol i accedentally sent this to the group drunk pokemon please ignore that

nice mecha design though it looks a bit weak on his slim tiny feet
if it can move at all on these without breaking them it has to be really really slow

hinxlinx Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2010
Very nice droid design, the folded limbs next to it's heads are the highlights for me. Reminded me a bit of Robocop 2.

What's that part under the ribs on the mech to the left >_>
Cloverfish Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2010
These rock. I love the organic bone-like shapes. I also like how the weight of these machines sits upon such thin legs, much like a buffalo. Of course that's as far as the buffalo comparison goes. Great concepts and great rendering.

GREAT design, as aways.
Lycrosa Featured By Owner May 26, 2010   Traditional Artist
omg, I love it, sigh, i can never draw such intricate designs...Awesome work!
freudian-lisp Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
That is insane. How do you come up with all these ideas?

It's just so... realistic. Your design pays attention to every single detail.

i love your work; its always great

Can't wait until we(/I) can here more about this bigger project ;)
Arlioz Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2010
This would be a great mech to Pilot. U know? 2 heavy gatling guns i think, boosters and a seemingly balanced chassis.
Metaru Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2010
this lefts me wondering if the gunbarrels could actually fire, and if the whole mechanics could fit into the structure surrounding the arm. give that its a rotating mechanism similar to how a minugun works, i see no room for the feeding system if its connected to teh gun from behind, also, does it feature a magazine to carry the ammo mpunted on the back? i doubt all the ammo such weapon would consume would be stored on its shoulders...

i'm asking since i seen you being so extremely detailed and technical with said desing leaves me wonder if you considered those elements.
Keithwormwood Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2010  Professional
The barrel configuration locks in before firing, making the whole thing a slightly tighter cylinder. If you notice the muzzles are actually aimed outwards, since it's a rotating set of Krummlauf barrels that allow the bodyguard in CQB to fire around corners or over cover. It uses shot shells and the feeds lead into the back of the torso and up to the magazine whose seam you can see up under the projection at the top in the rear view.
Metaru Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2010
i knew you would had that contemplated... everything makes sense now C:
Vagabondviper Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2010
It's so freakin tight and technical i don't know how you do it

Love the crouching menacing posture and the two versions with and without additional armor.
