Steam Walker by Keithwormwood Steam Walker by Keithwormwood
STEAM WALKER

Long in development, but first used in the Boer war, the Steam Walker proved tremendously efficient in almost single-handedly demolishing fortifications and blockades. However it proved less useful against the common guerilla actions it was forced to deal with.

Key Features:

Observation slot must be shared by both gunner and driver.

Twin smoke stacks with decorative embellishments.

Short bore, breach loading cannons mounted on rotating fixtures.

Gas headlamp fixed to entrance hatch.

Machined steel parts incur an incredible weight to the tank, but render it both resilient and impervious.

And this is why Keith is the king of retro-electronically mecha and the likes.

A wunderkind as will, I don't know many who can do Industrial, Biological, Ancient, high-tech and people at the same ability and skill. Surreal and realistic at the same time.

Impressive but the underside is exposed to enemy demolition charges like dynamite or sticky bombs. I also do not see any form of anti-infantry weapons but otherwise, the machine is extremely well-done.

i see potential for this design though most of the stress will be in th leg joints to th body, th boiler is concerningly exposed though you could armor it for better protection. it seems to be a bit to low to th ground, raising it would make it harder for enemy fire to reach vital components. you need to work the barbetts to suppress recoil as not to damage th legs, i worry a full broadside would cripple legs in the front and rear. work out these kinks and you have a wonderful machine, not insulting your work just giving some pointers for improvement when actually building it like i shall.

perhaps drawing a person to scale the metal thing would have been useful.

The detail in that is amazing on that walker, but it's kind of hard to scale to a human, but either way, that is amazing!!
