Damn, looks like I got here too late. Thank you for the suggestions, but I ultimately went with a tweaked version of TVC as my HW entrant due to lack of time. It's now faster and more agile in return for slightly less flipper power, so hopefully it'll be better at taking the fight to opponents directly.

And for my next trick, something a bit different. Now I'm fairly sure you all remember Genghis, the House Robot that Ice Cubed Robotics made for Cherry Bomb Classic and squashed a fair number of unfortunate robots with. :v: He's back to terrorise Vertigo once more, but this time, he's brought a friend along to inflict even more pain. Weighing in at about 580kg (1279lbs), with evil running through his metallic veins and having committed enough war crimes to make your average Third World dictator look like a choirboy by comparison;

Image
COLONEL MORDREAD
Designed to specialise in both close and long-range attacking, this Commander of Chaos is built around a solid tank track-based mobility system protected by Chobham-style armour plating around the sides, and is a bit slower than Genghis. He's certainly no less dangerous, though; coming equipped with Electric Boogaloo-style vertical spinning bars for demolishing and flinging even the toughest competitors about, and has a 360-degree turret equipped with a powerful flamethrower, and a modified airsoft-style minigun converted to fire Brutus-style special effect bullets at a rate of 6,000RPM. Add all that to a wide, thickly-armoured frame, protruding rear tracks to allow it to escape from wedges, and a rounded front snowplough designed to deflect spinners and stop it from being flipped; and you've got a true militaristic nightmare of an adversary who eagerly awaits ripping you apart.

Stats to come soon, but thoughts for now?

Looks good. I can think of somethings I would like to add to it, but for now...where is the picture of it with Putin? Also, can it fight an Omnidroid?

Much appreciated! I'll see if I can find footage of those as well (he once won a drinking contest against Putin after downing 42 shots of Castrol GTX in one sitting, and it bludgeoned an extended family of Omnidroids to death with a wrench whilst on vacation in Nomanisan Island), but for now, here's the proposed stats;

Speed: 5
Traction: 5
Torque: 5
Armour: 7 (+6 House Robot Bonus = 13)
Weapons: 18 (13 for Bar, 2 for Turret, 2 for Flamethrower, 1 for Minigun)

And for my first competitor in CBC2. Here's how the story (probably) went;

"Lol Kody, your Weeb Bots are trash!" said Alex.

"No Alex, you are the Weeb Bots.", said Kody. :tellu:

And then Alex made a Weeb Bot.

Anyway, here's Ayame. Since Kody and Lian and Josh and Nick F and some other dudes had fembots some time ago and that was all rather good, I've decided to have a try at making one myself, naming and theming it after Ayame; travelling entertainer-turned-ninja, and my favourite character from the rather kickass Power Stone series of fighting games. And all things considered, I think she came out pretty well!

Stats are a bit tentative at the moment, but I know that I'll have her based around speed/agility and defence, predominantly. For now though, thoughts?

Looks awesome.

Osiris... Armageddon! (MW)
Elrathia... ROBOTS (LW)
Magnolia Pico... Ruination 4 (MW)
RipTide... ROBOT2 (FW)


The Monsterworks: 141 - 42 (.770) ...Probably up to no good.

Planned stat spread and shape reminds me a bit of one of the earlier Cutie Honeys from Kody's team. Should be a pretty strong contender, as most of your stuff normally is.

And seeing as I never got round to a full reveal of it before Ruination, might as well do it now. Made by someone on Paint with a bad hand, here's the new(ish) Marauder.

Mostly the same as the old one, but with better armour and defence against overhead weapons and spinners with the new hinged and rounded scoop on the back (even though you can't see it, it still says "PUSH THIS, MOFOES." on it -- and he also no longer beaches himself when he presses the lifter, huzzah!), and it's now got an interchangeable set of wedges -- the Lifter still works the same as before, but since I couldn't easily work out the Flipper doing the same thing with the reversing, that's now got a more solid wedge to compensate. It's probably going to suck to be honest, but I did want to take this guy out for another spin some time, so bleh. :v: Thoughts?
