That vertical spinner looks great :) my only advice is to move the wheels up to make him inevitable also you put the spinner teeth the wrong way

Sidewinder looks cool, do you have enough weigh to add disc supports on the other side?
It doesn't have to be anything fancy, it would make it look more IRL

Two new heavyweights. Very sorry for the barf-ugly splash today, I wasn't feeling quite up to make it good looking.

Babaulti is essentially just Sidewinder but with a srimech, stronger front armor, and some other decorative changes. It has tweaks to its front ground clearance as well, and now can actually self right reliably.

Tunguska was inspired by SOW and Apex, and is just as unstable as the latter. 60 KG hammers and a metric sh** ton of ant batteries, since nothing else can be fitted into it. Not my best build tbh, but it wasn't really build with championship victories in mind.

I like how squat Babaulti is - it's super-compact and is bordering on cute with how tiny it is.

Nice looking bots here man, Tunguka seems really nicely built. I rather like the custom bar you've built here. However, whilst I can't see how many ant bats you've got exactly, I can say you best put 3 red bats in, this will save you weight which you can use else where. You still have 40~kg on top of that for armour, better drive or more weapons.

as for Babaulti. Underweight, but that will allow you to add to it and improve. I'd recommend raising the angle of the motor higher, this can be done by placing a angled extender piece on the chassis and then placing the perm on that, than giving the disc small typhoon teeth instead of cutting teeth. Wheel guards are a good idea and just general underside armour is a good idea. And just make sure you have enough batteries. Keep up the great work man, excited to see what you can make.

New robot. Heavyweight (794.4 kg). More of a pusher than a flipper since its so fast. Might experiment with modularity with this one.

looks cool for a pushbot, try to tuck the front hinges into the chassis to make them less visible would be my only recommendation but that's just a purely aesthetic thing

2 new bots. Trying out the lower weight classes, and it hasn't been going great. Phase was inspired by Overdrive from Battlebots, and it hilariously flops around a bit after a flip. Has troubles with its flipper clipping through the ground.... somehow. Graveholme is definitely not Tombstone, and its weapon is so ridiculously exposed its almost funny.



And even though almost no one cared about NTB, I followed up on my statement about making it modular. Here's its anti horizontal spinner configuration, with stronger side plates (Ti to St), a static steel wedge replacing the flipper, and a new flamethrower. I originally had base armor, but the robot kept getting stranded on the half sheets I would put on, which is ass

looks like you got the weight classes mixed up :P

graveholme's weapon axle is floating and needs some extenders underneath it, and i think phase would perform better with some feet under the flipper, so there's something for the bot to rest on when it flips.

other than that, they look solid, if not a bit simple. Keep at it, dude

Oooof, weight classes have indeed been mixed up, its the other way around.

New robutt. Cherub inspired, and surprisingly can actually get under opponents. It's an absolute nightmare in arenas with pits once it gets under someone. Over sized chassis tho :(

NPC Fasts, 2 Extra Short Bursts. I completely forgot to put in an internal shot, whoops!

It looks good although you should really make the thing that connects the side armour looks stronger if you get what im saying

Ass looking splash today.

Bison can self right (usually) if its on its antlers and front flipper plate. If its stuck on the back plate, it pops itself onto the antlers, letting it self right. Way too complicated, but there's no other way I can find that doesn't involve the flipper arm phasing though the baseplate. Pretty good other than that.

Ophidia is the next in my snake robot lineage. 3 Medium Bursts because why not  :thumbup.

The wheel guards on ophidia can probably be more compact

Bison is pretty neat
I agree with pokebro on Ophidia, I think there's a bit too much space between the wheels and the guards. Other than that, it's nice work :)

Sorry for another post in a short time span. Sequel to Tunguska, inspired by ICEwave. Better in pretty much every way, but lost some of its ridiculous-ness factor from before.

That's a damn compact HW.

Surely it won't hit anything with such a steep wedge and a high weapon?

You'd be surprised! It can actually get under some robots (which surprised me), mostly spinners, and Eye Stabber. It doesn't have much of a gyro dance, but when it gets stuck on a wedge, it sort of flops around and can do damage. Its not the most competitive robot, but its good fun.

I think if you can get it flatter using the 6 mag motor. That'd be nice. The beaters also don't appear to be doing too much as well from the looks of it.
