Holy cow, really? XD I've hardly played Doom so I wouldn't know...what a coincidence! I'll try to keep up the good stuff!  :mrgreen:

Here are some more robots!

This is Undertaker, based on the wrestler of the same name!


This is Beaky Bleeder/Twirley Bird, a full body spinner a friend asked me to make. It was based on a robot called Hurricane and has the colours of a macaw.  :mrgreen:


And finally, to keep some peace in the battles, I made Toby: a robot inspired by Refbot/referees in general!

I like the looks of your bots. But can't help to notice that the last two bots are critically under-weight for a heavyweight. The referee may be no problem because this is more of a show bot and not made for combat, the Beaky Bleeder may do with some more weaponry such as possibly using more Typhoon teeth not only for more damage, but to also use up some of the 113.5 spare KGs. If that's not for your tastes Orc, what extenders are you using? If you are using Aluminium extenders for the outer ring, you can swap them for steel or titanium extenders to increase the strength of the outer ring, allowing the ring to take more hits over using aluminium extenders for the ring. The Drive is decent if for something like a lightweight, though for heavyweight I often use Drive motors like the TWM3R just for a little more speed over the motors you're using, the motor that you are using may give a good moment of speed but they aren't ideal for Heavyweights, so try only using them for lighter weight classes like lights and beetles if you can. As for one last note, put some more batteries into Bleeder. Two battlepacks may be handy, but having more batteries when you apply the changes can allow the bot to have a longer battery life in the field.

Overall, try keeping up the arty bots but you may decide if you do want to take up this bulk of criticism. You may break it down a take little bits or take it all.

If I'm entering tournaments or whatever, I do tend to get as close to the weight limit as possible. For Beaky Blinder and Toby, I probably forgot to change the armour which is why they are underweight so I'll adjust that.  :smile: I only used the Slimbody motors as they fit nicely into certain shapes (Undertaker for example, I made the body bigger originally but it looked odd so I decreased the body size...the robot is a bit slow but it funnily matches the character he is based on) but I'll have a look at those motors! I tend to use Aluminium extenders as they don't weigh that much, even though they are probably weaker compared to the others.

Thanks for the kind words and advice!

Beaky Bleeder reminds me of Bloody Murder Weapon form Dutch Robot Wars Series 2.

As Orc said, it was actually based off the obscure BattleBots Season 4.0 superheavyweight one-time loser Hurricane, which lost its only bout to Armageddon by unanimous decision, 45 - 0.

That being said, I can see a resemblance to Bloody Murder Weapon too!

Good sir, I will one day make a monstrous machine that rips all your stuff to pieces! You have my word as a gentleman! Anyway...it has been a while but I've been tinkering away on some bots for GTM Live!

First up is Carrion! I was experimenting with a claw mechanism which eventually evolved into a General Chompsalot like machine! (I wonder where the electronics are?  :mrgreen:)


Second up is Phantom! I wasn't sure what kind of flipper I wanted to make but was given the idea by Doodlez to create a 4 bar lifter! I have to admit, I love how it works!


Last but not least is Werewolf! The original Stock version worked well with rapidly spinning claws but as spinners aren't allowed in GTM Live, I had to think of a different way of implementing them...I like the final result!


Hope you guys like them, as always any advice is appreciated!
