Mad Max mech by flyingdebris Mad Max mech by flyingdebris
This assignment the theme was Mad Max style post apocalyptic, so i had to somehow figure out what a post apocalypse mech would look like, despite the fact that one would be really unlikely.

So i decided to go along the lines of, "what would some mad engineer/junk scavenger be able to piece together?"

So i've got the front half of a minivan as the torso/cockpit, wrapped up in a rollcage. A diesel engine jury rigged into acting like a hip to power the legs. 3 co2 powered spearguns aimed via a webcam for the right arm. An improvised flamethrower for the right arm. Random pointy things hanging fromt he crotch of the mech to discourage enemies from running about down there. A manned 50 cal machinegun turret rigged to a revolving mount on the right shoulder. Barbed wire wrapped around the legs to discourage climbers. And the entire thing is balanced by a PC mounted up top running a program that automatically adjusts the walking systems to maintain balance.

That is one epic assignment. I just feel like the feet could be bigger because they look too small to be effective in soft ground/gravel.

This is amazing. They'd dominate the area they were in but hey probably worth the amount of time it took to scramble the parts. The way its built though a lucky shot and there's a lot of things going to fall apart :p

Barbed wire on the legs is a nice touch. Guess it would prevent enemies from boarding the thing.

I really think you hit the theme on the head with this, all the scrap and junk looks like it was scavenged.
Very much like the idea of powering it with a diesel engine, can you imagine the roar it would make when it was going?
Well done.

A cyborg can climb easily, these chains are designed only for organic enemies. Maybe some electro shock will help.

Its sick... Mad Max, wondering why theres no mech in Fallout except 1 or 2 mech ever appeared... This one would be cool but in reality wouldt fit Fallout series... You should send this to Interplay and sell this concept for their MMO Project V13... its not Fallout MMO anymore :P

Outrageous! :D I could so see this as a Junker's creation in a Deadlands "Hell on Earth" campaign. Or, at least, I could see me showing this picture to the GM and saying, "I want to build one of these!" and being told, "No way!" But it'd make a pretty cool kit-bash project for miniatures gaming, to be sure.
