How you make Alarm Clock Pizza is:
Step 1: You buy an alarm clock from the store, and then you have to break it and put it in the sauce.
Step 2: Fold the sauce in 5 slices and put it in the dough.
Step 3: Paint the eggs with a pitcher of a clock showing what time you want to wake up and eat pizza for breakfast.
Step 4: Put the eggs in the dough.
Step 5: Make it flat into a round shape and draw the time you want on it.
Step 6: Put some old steel to prevent other peple from stealing it.
Step 7: Make it flat and cut into 60 slices 1 for each minute in 1 our.
Step 8: Put in the oven set the timer to 30048813.2884 seconds and put the temperature on 'Volcano' setting.
Step 9: If you think it is take to long, then get yor alarm clock and set it to now so that it will ring and you can take it out.
Step 10: Take it out uv the uvin wen it is redy and go to bed. In the morning eat pizza and also eat yor hands bi mistake.

Nope, only Scottish events.

Yeah, body is made of polycarb and I'm getting some aluminium panels in the mail, won't get them until Wednesday because my dad only goes back to work on the Wednesday.

As a fair warning, It's quite likely judging on the past of these events that Little Hitter will turn up.

Thought it said Little Hitler for a sec.

Little Hitter shouldn't be a problem if it turns up. I'm trying to dodge Little Hitter, Little Flipper, and Thor. Plus I'm more of a wedge when I go in, the springs are crap.

why don't you just put all the parts into a shape or shell that is designed for combat, so you won't have too much damage to fix?
shutta your gaping noise void woman!!

Got my alumnium panels in the mail. More protection than the polycarb, wahey. Marked out the holes, just need to drill them in now.


Here's them sitting on Stratos.

Back from taking Stratos to the Robots Live! event at the Museum of Flight. Didn't do that well, but it is just a BattleRat. Fought three fights, first and second I did alright, third one the drive went haywire so I was limited to moving in ramdomly directed fits and starts.

Sorry for the wait guys, youtube was playing up.

Look at my rod, it's about 9 inches long, and 3/4 inches thick, and once I've worked on it, I will use it to ram into others.

So I decided to buy a Scot Bots kit from Tony Smith and Jamie McHarg, but anything without a weapon would be crap so I got this cut from a bar of aluminium tonight, with the intention of working on it tomorrow night, grinding one end to a point and threading the other end on a lathe.

I'm planning on making the spike interchangeable with a scoop which will be made from scrap bits of metal and wood lying around the Techie storerooms, and a chain with a padlock or something at the end as some form of flail.

I don't expect this to be the most promising or damaging of weapons or indeed robots, but it's a start, and it'll still exceed Stratos by far.

You should absolutely sharpen the end like a straw thing and call the bot "Gauging" :3

I heard that's how gauged ear piercings are done- with a straw shaped metal shiv basically.

Which reminds me- You aren't roboteer grouped, why?

Nah, a spike will do fine, Kossy.  :heart_smiley:

I'm not Roboteer grouped because I don't think robots that were bought or kits count. It's highly unlikely that I'll become Roboteer grouped after this because the only things I'm doing are putting all the bits together (might have to create the circuitry from a bag of bits) and making weapons.

Static. None of my weapons will be powered.
