Walker Assault

Battle-worn company of walkers moving quickly through a narrow pass.

I added my usual preference of wargear to the AT-STs, obviously keeping canon in mind and always making sure that whatever I've added have somehow appeared in SW stories at some point. In this image I thought it would be nice to show a different loadout for the different walkers in a company. The light footed scout to the left of the image sporting long range mortars bolted to the upper rear of the turret, communications antenna and 6-pack dumbfire rockets for harrassment. Also small, lightweight reactive armour plates to cover the vulnerable battery packs on the underside of the turret.

The main lead unit just has to have a nonchalant cool-headed gunner who is probably soaking in the sunrise :p, and it also sports 2 rotating grenade launcher mounts on its lower cheeks, plus a winch system under the main chin gun and shielded weapon systems.

The gun on top almost looks like a Soviet HMG. The Dishka I think? Is it an actual in universe weapon or did you make it up for this?

As a former tank commander, I wholeheartedly approve of this.

Nice work. No we don't know what we are looking at which is at the right of the lead Walker.

I think that stormtrooper on top is posing for the documentation. Shame we can't see his smirk.

Not sure if anyone has shown you this yet, but a fine gentleman has modified an AT-ST model based on your work, and has done a pretty fantastic job of it: www.rebelscale.com/models/buil…

Figured you'd like to see how your work has inspired us all. ;)

Hey, thank you for the kind words. I'm the guy working on that, and it's actually done. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to get some good photos of it, but I'll do my best to post here when I do.

And yes, his Star Wars art has been very inspiring....some of my favorite work next to McQuarrie.

There are mechs, there are walkers, but few capture what such machines are like for combat - the AT-ST in Jedi captured it for me and you have taken this to a new level.

It feels so feesable - I can see a convoy of them striding up the road, in line, troops sticking out of the top turret, fatigued. This image conveys it to perfection.

I could rant why Star Wars is not like this...but I won't.

Quality sir - just quality.

And my favorite, the AT-PT in the back! :D

Your AT-STs make sense. I'd feel safer in a company of your STs than the standard ST battalions.
