NWI Rook by Pyrosity NWI Rook by Pyrosity
The perspective is kind of shitty but I was mostly wanting to get the idea down.


Anti-air walker fitted as a mini-fort. Plants itself solidly into the ground in order to fully stabilize the dual AA turrets and wreck havoc on the enemy air force.

Your walkers are super cool! Love the idea behind this one. Have you ever made any technical write-ups for the walkers?

Thank you :3

By technical write-ups, do you mean design specs or like blueprints?

Oh, design specs! You know, service records, design notes, intended use and efficacy in the field, just things like those write-ups you had and some of the other vehicles. I think. It's been a few days so I've mostly forgotten what I was thinking when I first asked xD

Ah; I don't always end up doing technical specifications for my designs, it sort of depends on how developed the design is or whether it's a one-off like this one. Usually, as I take a design through more iterations (which can span years, at times, as I go back through and revisit old designs), I tend to get more practical with it and think about design specs and such, but this isn't always the case.

For this design in particular, I never did write up anything in terms of design specs. I like the concept, and it's one I will probably end up revisiting someday when I get more back into mech design, but so far it's been on the eternal back-burner (or rather more appropriately; cold storage!)

Really nice. It always bugs me when I see mechs being portrayed as high profile machines, when in reality, I would want a mech which is low profile, close to the ground, stable, and not the size of a skyscraper (and thus vulnerable to take down).
Sorry for my little rant there, but seriously this is a very well thought out design here.

Yeah. I've done a lot of thinking about how I could take the idea of a walking tank/mechwarrior type thing and make it have purpose as a military machine. I'm not totally satisfied yet but with each design comes more learning and revision :)

Danke :3
As I've said before, I like to stay a bit on the realism side, and the challenge of working out feasible designs is rewarding and fun.

Pretty sick. So i'm guessing its a mobile suit/artillery?

Yup. Think two flakvierling turrets on a pair of legs.

Thanks :)
