Heavy Minion WIP by JazzLizard Heavy Minion WIP by JazzLizard
The Heavy Minion is one of the most powerful autonomous mechanized units in Gavin Maxin's arsenal. It is capable of imparting his will at close and extremely long range with a mix of weaponry. More on the Minions and the Tyrant story to come.

This model was inspired by some of ~flaketom's incredible mech designs, and some crab-like critters I saw on the tele-vision.

Nice. Love the attention to detail under the legs' armor plates.

Have you ever seen Provisional Model Evangelion Unit-05 from "Evangelion: 2.0- You Can (Not) Advance"? Any thoughts on it?

To help in future confusion:

"Neon Genesis Evangelion" was the 1995-96 TV series that ran 26 eps and two sequel movies- "Evangelion: Death and Rebirth" (theatrical recap of the series with some new footage spliced in) and "The End of Evangelion" (an alternate ending of the series, replacing the last two episodes).

Rebuild of Evangelion is a quadrilogy of movies ("Evangelion: 1.0-...", "2.0...", "3.0...", and "Final...") which retells the story, and will have a brand-new conclusion.

Now- getting back to my original comment to you- in "End of Evangelion" we get the Mass Production (aka MP) Evangelion Units, which are white with black trim, and all look the same. One of these is labeled MP EVA Unit-05.
However, in "Evangelion: 2.0- You Can (Not) Advance", we see a brand new and unique Provisional Model EVA Unit-05, which looks nothing like the MP version. It is this latter Unit-05 I am referring to in my first comment.

Your vehicles are always a delight to view. I'm trying to estimate the gait, with 6 legs. While stability, for the main gun, would be a lot smoother, I think the speed would be slower. This would make for an interesting model project.

You've got it right, due to this thing's huge size it is very slow, but stable.

Nice. What would be the weight on this little beauty? At 300 odd feet, several hundred thousand tons?

OVER 9000...
I mean, hmmm, a lot. I haven't put much thought into that, other than it would weigh enough that you'd feel it coming miles away. There were very few of these built, as they were used mostly as terror-weapons that would cause entire armies to flee at their very approach. And the fact that they're so large, their main guns can put craters into mountains that you can see from space.

A very interesting 'terror' weapon. Most of them, in our history, just weren't worth the cost. It sounds like the Heavy Minion was worth the effort. Feeling it long before I could see it would be enough of a deterrent for me.

Thanks! It was supposed to be a giant steampunk thing, but it fit the bill for my Heavy Minion quite nicely.

It knows to avoid areas like that. And if it can see it, it can hit it with it's main gun. If it can't see it or get to it, Maxin's airships will just bomb it.

looks like one hell of a behemoth. anti-infantry (smaller guns on the main body surrounding the artillery)
anti-air/anti-vehicle? (the stalk like things on the top?) and artillery...this thing could clear a planet by its self.

well done my friend, well done...now lets just hope the military don't try to actually make this beast

Well, in the Tyrant story, this thing is nearly three hundred feet tall. The smaller guns are used for everything from anti-infantry to anti-armor, and the larger artillery is a beam-projector which was primarily used to shoot down airships and cut buildings off of their foundations.

Glad you like it!

Hey, when it comes to designing robots, I'm still a big kid ;)
These were used by a tyrannical megalomaniac to take over an entire planet, more or less, so he didn't care much about overkill.

But where is its weak point? I need to hit it for massive damage. xD

Well, first you have to defeat its underlings; forty foot tall walking spiders with flamethrowers and rocket launchers, then you have to fight their overbosses; hundred foot tall crab-like monstrosities with huge machine guns and rocket-launching flame throwers, and then you can fight this guy.

I'd say its only weak spots are its underbelly and the gaps around its main gun. To get to either you would have to get through its defensive screen comprised of a number of smaller mechanized infantry units, which in of itself would be a challenge. And of course, once you opened fire on its belly, it would probably vent plasma down onto you. Throwing a satchel charge or grenade bouquet (think how Jake Sully took down the Dragon Airship in Avatar) into the gap around the main gun could cause serious damage, as its only lightly armored, but is shielded from long-range attack.
