541st AT-RT/s *Updated*

Post by Sialboats on Wed Aug 19, 2009 4:13 pm



The All Terrain Reconnaissance Transport is quite prolific throughout the GAR. Initially designed as a scout unit, Colonel Turaki Kaier saw it as a way to mechanize his infantry. While his dream of AT-RT-mounted battalions never came to fruition - considering the lengthy procurement times so characteristic of the bureaucracy-backed army - he was able, however, to ensure that at least every squad of Armored Elite, Skirmisher Infantry, and Regular Infantry had an AT-RT/s with them. The walker was recon unit, Squad Automatic Weapon, communications package, and equipment hauler in one. While the unit could still function autonomously without a AT-RT/s in support - it still was a splendid addition to their combat outfit.

Slightly different from the basic model, the S was faster, lighter, better outfitted and had a much heavier cannon. While the shape was very much the same, the S was made of durable plastics, new laser-resistant composites and significantly fewer metal elements. This increased her speed, while still allowing her to tote some serious firepower and more advanced logistical equipment, keeping in line with the 541st tradition of "flight to the fight". The AT-RT/s was a tangible manifestation of the 541st's dogma; combining martial strength with mobility.






I HATED my TLC AT-RTs, due to the fact that they towered over even a HAV/w Juggernaut Shocked . Seeing myself with some time on my hands, I decided to whip me up an agreeable alternative, that was on a better scale, and exceptionally pose-able (so that I could find a use for her in mah comics). I have to say, I'm pleased with the results. Some might say she's too thin, but I for one admire a slender outline. The AT-RT's supposed to be diminutive, anyways Wink.

The legs need major work, they look way too disproportionate compared to the body.

The body, however, is good. I'm loving all that dark red! Shocked And the purist figs are good eye candy, too.

Overall, it's pretty decent, but needs some tweaking... Wink

It's that bad, eh? Hmm... I guess it looks different when you're holding it in your hand, or staring at it on your desk Razz .

Like Joe said. Legs way too thin. Your troops also look a little too exposed to me.

I see what you mean.

Yes, as said that legs just look..well...odd compared to the body, I love the front piece and the design of the body. Just work on those legs. Wink

Spindly! I have a thing for spindly-ness, only rivaled by blockyness. I actually like the legs, but like others said, cover up the sides a little. They kinda mess with things, if you know what I mean.

Legs need lots of work on them. The upper half looks pretty good though. Wink

Cool! I think these are by far better than TLC's version, it's just that, IMHO, the legs look weak compared to that scrumptious bley/dark red body. Wink

Whenever I make walkers I always think looks and movement over accuracy and, sometimes, practicality. Wink

Made a couple've modifications. I'm finding it really hard to bulk up the legs, while keeping that light, smooth, agile feel of the walker.

Wait a sec...


As we can see, you've done the body great, but the legs are a bit ugly. They're too small and
to thin.

Here try this.

After looking at that reference pic Lukas put up, yours is looking pretty good. But he's right. Legs are still a tad too thin.

Amazing I would say. Beef up the legs. Top half is to good (from looking at the reference pic)

It's a start, but there are too many bulky pieces... to get the shape and smallness of it right you need to use miniscule pieces...
You don't have to do this, but it does make the AT-RT look a bit more advanced and mechanical, instead of all the ones we see here that are to be honest, a bit too basic. And as everyone said the waist down is a bit odd. The legs are too thin in some places, and the feet... well lets just say you could work on the shape.

It's a great beginning but it needs some mods...
keep on playing with it.

I'd use them provided I had a proper pool of them. My biggest enemy here was not having a lot of the pieces that I wanted to use Wink . If I had a larger supply of the elements that would have helped flesh out the legs, I'd use them DY Razz .
