LW: HOBART 2: FEAR NAUGHT
Hobart 2 picsShow
ImageImageImageImageImageImage
Hobart 2: Fear Naught (Tracked drum spinnaaaaah/vertical flail spinnaaaaaaaah)
Speed: 7 | Traction: 4 (+1=5) | Torque: 1 | Weapon: 14 | Armour: 4 (+2 spinnaaaaaaaaaah) | Removable hinged forks

In ROBOT2, Hobart was something of a surprise package, garnering multiple wins with its fast-paced, hyper-aggressive style and honest-to-God vertical fucking flails. For CBC3, Team Worst Swordsman has elected to turn things up to eleven. Now getting in on that Black Dog vibe, Hobart 2: Fear Naught has had a comprehensive redesign of its track setup, allowing it to be invertible (though there's definitely still a srimech in there somewhere, I promise) and have a higher top speed. The machine also retains its unique attitude to flails; instead of using them like a conventional spinnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, Hobart spins them the "wrong" way and uses them as something analogous to a really fast electric axe. The chain flex that's a problem with using a flail as a conventional spinner thus magically becomes an advantage. With a much improved drivetrain and a hugely powerful weapon, Hobart 2 really does Fear Naught. Except other robots, because it's armoured with Dairylea slices and hope. =]



MW: DRAGONFIST

Dragonfist (2WD Shell Spinnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah)
Speed: 3 | Traction: 1 | Torque: 1 | Weapon: 16 | Armour: 9 | FBS

With revisions to the internals making it a lot more reliable, Dragonfist is back and better than ever! Team Worst Swordsman's sole previous playoff hopeful is returning with its weird combination of horizontal flails and shell spinning. The weaponry now hits quite a lot harder, and we were able to skimp a bit on armour to get the shell up and running at full damage capacity. With the power turned up, Dragonfist is here to show people once again that flail meta is best meta. =]



HW: TABOR MARK 3: SOMEHOW THERE'S A THIRD ONE

Type 2 Anti-Rambot Wedge, the anti-monstertrucking spikes of which actually contain some very small Egyptians.

Type 3a/b Anti-HS ABR Plough. 3a is a plain wedge, 3b is the one with the teeth

Type 4 Omni-Directional Assault Spatula. Modelling the googly eyes took me quite a lot longer than I'm willing to admit.
Tabor Mk. 3: Somehow There's A Third One (4WD omni-directional assault spatula)
Speed: 6 | Traction: 4 | Torque: 3 | Weapon: 7 (5 turret / 5 lifter) | Armour: 10 (+2 lifter) | Actuated Wedge

She's back, baby. Tabor Mark 3 is a very different beast from the falling-over-trons of competitions past. She's now sporting a much longer wheelbase, hinged side skirts, shock-mounting for the arms as well as on the interchangeable scoops, a completely rebuilt turret (complete with branding and a pretty sick logo), and a snazzy new paint job. All things being equal, the old girl should now be able to lift much more effectively and without pitching forward all the time, which I hear helps. With powerful drive and defensive prowess, it might finally be Tabor's time to shine. Do your worst.



SHW: KEGATRON

KEGATRON (2WD full-body drum spinnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah)
Speed: 6 | Traction: 8 (-2=6) | Torque: 1 | Weapon: 5 | Armour: 10 | FBS

KEGATRON, and yes you do have to spell it like that, is a full-body drum that asks the question: "What if HUGE, but considerably more stupid?". Built from whatever happened to be lying around the shed, including a beer barrel for the weapon, Team Worst Swordsman have honed their machine into something very, very tough. Deceptively quick off the mark and easy to pilot for something as vast and spinny as it is, KEGATRON's looking to score some attritional victories with its high-torque full-body drum while the team works on rebuilding and redesigning their other extant superheavyweight.

wedge with overhead thwack. originally made by ChaosFerret. removable wedge spike things.

Speed: 9 / Traction: 7 / Torque: 4 / Weapon: 0 / Armor: 10 (+2 wedge)

Handgun Bobcat - Heavyweight

works like this: . Snake in KoB used this mechanism successfully - basically i will clamp down until I meet resistance, and then lift. the top clamp will also open all the way before I lower the lifter. Relevant to stats, this is run off the same weapon system, so that 5 down there applies to clamp speed and lift speed. alternate plow cofiguration drops the fancy gear setup that lets that work for, well, a plow. the motor powering the system is unchanged - the only thing different is what I attach to the drive axle of the weapon. wedgelets are shock mounted, with enough vertical flexibility to act as hinged.

Speed: 7 / Traction: 6 / Torque: 2 / Weapon: 5 / Armor: 10 (+1 front)

I would say reserve for all weight categories, but dear god this filled up before I managed to get home lol.

I'll soft reserve MW, but reserve for everything else

LW: Sleipnir

Alternate wedges:

Plow config

Anti-axe and vertical flail


Everyone's favourite (only) 8WD wedge. It's pretty simple. The forks can be flicked up by VSs, meaning that the robot will not be thrown when hit vertically in the forks.

Spd:8/Tra:8/Trq:2/Wep:0/Arm:12 (+1 wedge/forks)

MW: Athena (4WD Saw/VS thing)

HW: Spitfire (2WD Lifter/Clamp/Flamethrower)

SHW: TAT

A now desentientised 4WD drum spinner.

No, it can't be high-centred at the back.

LW: Harrowdown Hill

Image

Image

Image

bars setup

Image

anti-vs setup

Image

Speed: 6
Traction: 4
Torque: 1
Weapon: 9
Armor: 10 (+2 front wedges)

I'm coming home, i'm coming home--to make it alright, so dry your eyes. We think the same things at the same time, we just can't do anything about it.

And now for a robot that might have a conventional enough design, but a somewhat unconventional purpose. Harrowdown Hill is a 2WD control VS that's designed to fling it's opponents around the arena and stay on top of them to keep on scoring points, instead of directly doing damage to them. The front wedge is hinged, but only at around 5-10 degrees downward, and is also shock-mounted, to help reduce direct chassis damage.

It's also named after a great song from Thom Yorke's solo album The Eraser, that I recommend you to go check out if you have the time.

MW: Neophyte Redglare

Image

Image

Image

Image

Speed: 7
Traction: 6
Torque: 3
Weapon: 2 (1/1 split between the lifting wedge and forks)
Armor: 12 (+1 front wedge)

In an event that pretty much everyone saw coming--after basically making the playoffs in ROBOT2, but didn't exactly make it because I had dipped out from the community at the time, Redglare is back--in the same setup as she was in during ROBOT2. The weapons are electric motor-operated lifters, and have been set to operate independently. The wedge can move around 45 degrees up and down, and the lifting forks can move 90 degrees forward. In order to prevent Square Wave Syndrome when lifting opponents up on it's wedge, the back of the robot is filled with counterweight ballasts. You know the deal by now.

HW: No, Dude! You'll Get Crushed!

Image

clamps down

Image

Image

Speed: 7
Traction: 5 (+1 track bonus)
Torque: 3
Weapon: 5 (3/3 split between the clamp and the saws)
Armor: 10 (+2 front plow)

Completely ridiculous design incoming. And a ridiculous name to boot.

No, Dude! You'll Get Crushed! is a design akin to Red Devil, but on crack. So, how does this design might work? It's pretty simple, as the top clamps and srimech share the same system. (the bottom forks are unpowered, and are hinged, but on a ~5-10 degree limiter downwards, same goes for the front plows of the robot.) The general gist behind No, Dude! You'll Get Crushed is that I can sneak up on my opponent, clamp down on them with my clamp, and let the saws on the front grind away at my opponent--thus creating sparks that'll woo the judges and accumulate points.

Fuck me, I think I need to go to bed.

SHW: Space Cadet

flipper active

Speed: 7
Traction: 6
Torque: 3
Weapon: 2
Armor: 12 (+1 front wedges)

Fuck you, it's January Space Cadet!

Back from R4, and practically unchanged from it's debut season, Space Cadet is a 4WD 4-bar flipper a-la Ziggy and Son Of Ziggy, but more or less based off of Bronco with the theming of Escape Velocity. Since i did forget to state this in Space Cadet's post in R4, the front America Offline wedges of Space Cadet ARE hinged, but on a ~5-10 degree limiter downwards.
