Two kinds of tanks

We've got a walking one, very reminiscent of the AT-AT from Star Wars, by Rat Dude. He calls it the BT-HIW. I bet HIW is an acronym for something

(looks at description)

Yup, it stands for heavy Invasion Walker. Woe to the poor Space pPlice who have to face these monsters

And we got a more traditional tank by Stephan Niehoff. He calls it the Scorpion II. Apparently it's a tank from Halo, but sine I do not play the game, I will just have to take the builder's word for it.

Let's take that old shuffle bot-

-And let's make it walk!

If you didn't figure it out, this is my Neo-Suborbital Guardian. if you don't know what Blacktron 2 set that is, what are you doing on this blog?

This has been an ongoing MOC, I have even posted an earlier version on this blog. Compare here

The main difference is that this one is modular, and can have the cockpit switched around, just like the official sets.
This is one of those MOCs that is never done, always getting tweaked here and there, so you can expect another update in a couple of years ;)

Hey look, I build in yellow!

I know I have a general bias towards the Blacktron 2, but every now and then, I give some love to the original Blacktrons.

This ship was inspired by Star Trek's Klingon Bird of Prey, though I don't know how obvious it is. I may not have captured a BoP, but I feel I really nailed Blacktron 1 evilness.

And hey, I built two of them!

The rovers are rolling in

Because it's Febroverery or something like that. Whatevr you want to call it, this little rover by Horcik Designs is awesome, and makes great use of a single one of those corner panels.
