SOF is good, I like the compact weapon because those aren't implemented enough.

I spy pole spikes on a flipper. Now I have to go and do... things.

It's been a long time since I did the first MW version of Sabre, and Sabre has changed a lot since then, so I figured it was high time to do an updated MW version in case another MW + HW father and son tournament happens (also because I was bored, wanted to build something other than an HW and Sabre is my favourite bot I've built  :dance:)

Here's the result. 397KG and I think it looks pretty damn good for it. Storm burst for the weapon and 2 TWMRs for drive so it actually has the same flipper power as the HW sabre but in a bot that weighs half as much. Armour is a combination of steel at the very front and Alu everywhere else.

A missed opportunity in naming it Epee or Foil. Still it’s so damn nice!

Looks great, I think I might like it more than Sabre

Especially the use of those wheels, you made them fit in surprisingly well!

I was thinking more cavalry sabre than fencing sabre when I made Sabre originally, though I may keep those two names in mind for the future

Yeah it all panned out pretty much exactly how I was hoping. I'm normally not a fan of wheels with a bunch of texture to them but I think they work fairly well here for some reason.

Just a shame the DSL wheels look a bit weird, I think they could do with a slight reskin maybe

I could possibly swap them out with backlash wheels or something, but I don't think they look too bad as is.

I didn’t know it was possible to make something so great to be so light

I was really surprised that I actually managed to get it in weight given that it has the same flipper power and isn't all that much smaller than the HW version, but lo and behold I managed it

It looks good. I think you should put screenshots showing it with the flipper extended
Guess who's back

I added a hinged wedge so it should be fairly decent

Made various small updates to some older bots to fix some niggling issues I had with them.

First up is Anguish. This one has seen probably the most major changes of the 3 bots. First off I added a srimech now which should hopefully make it slightly more combat viable (as much as a vert with a single small typhoon tooth can be combat viable), and I also redesigned the disc completely to hopefully be less havok-inducing. This one now uses 2 sandwiched medium 2 discs with a couple of extenders and counterweights inside to balance it. The disc is physically larger than the old one and it's debatable if it looks better or not, but it uses like a third of the components of the old one as well as avoiding 10 degree angle extenders which supposedly contribute towards havoks and crashes, so that should be a good thing.

 


Next is Astra. I mentioned in the "which bot are you most proud of" thread that this was the build I was most proud of, but despite that I've always had a few small issues with it which I finally took the time to fix. The first of those is the wheels. The way they always clipped through the body unsupported always bothered me, so I added these little wheel guard/support things which, IMO, look great and add a lot to the bot. The other issue I had was the panel gap between the front triangles and the sloped sides. I honestly have no ideas why I left that gap there initially as it's a super easy fix, makes the bot look a lot cleaner and really there's no excuse for me not to have added it given that Astra is an SHW where weight really isn't an issue. The result is now definitely worthy of being the bot I'm most proud of, in my opinion.

 


And finally Sabre IV. I know full well that I can't stop banging on about Sabre and the many iterations of it and bots based off it that I've made, but it's my personal favourite bot I've ever built and every time I can't think of something new to build I come back to it to have a tinker. This is no exception. Spurred on by the ban of skirts in Brothers in Arms, combined with the fact that I've always thought that the Skirt wedge on Sabre was maybe pushing the limits of my own strict definitions of IRL a bit too far, I finally decided to have a crack at a non-skirt wedge solution for Sabre. This is the result. I think it looks a whole lot cleaner to be honest, and from testing the wedging ability seems similar to the old skirt wedge, so I think it's a win-win really. I'm eager to know you guys' thoughts on it though.

Anguish and Astra 10/10
Sabre 11/10 but mainly as I don't consider the skirt wedge as IRL either

Thanks man!  :heart_smiley:

The new wedge on Sabre is a definite improvement. More realistic and looks better too I'd say. Blends in a lot better with the rest of the design.

nice look to them. esp the VS.
Thanks! The VS obviously isn't gonna be very competitive but I'm pleased with how  it came out looks wise and then new disc is definitely a big improvement in that it might not make hosts want to tear their hair out so much I feel.

looking cool is all an irl bot needs to do. think you did a good job in that dept

may look better without the antennas imho but it's not a big deal. your call.
