Just to make shure, what kind of battle machine are we doing?
You mean ground-type battle machines aswell, right?
(Things like anti-grav tanks, mechs, and other things like that)

Sweet! I thought the battle arena had curled up and died!
It's about time we saw some action around here!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

Have fun!

P.S. I get winner!

Well... it would be a good idea to post a concept to demonstrate that you have the knowledge to actually achieve what you initially set out to do, instead of having stuff happen by accident then rolling with it (I speak from exp >< lol)

I did something kind of unconventional, A 3D concept. Keep in mind that this is crap, but its enough to work off of for when i start modeling. Its gonna be a spider robot tank. its like 10 feet tall, and it shoots rockets from that top part, and bullets from its face... Trust me, you will be able to tell by the end

Hey! Don't be so fast to put your work down! Thats a pretty nice model! rough concept or not...

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

Oh, and maybe this should be designed to look more like a Scorpion, as you have that large tail/ rocket launcher sticking up, and over it's back.

Your concept looks good, Joopson!
Anyway, I drew a crude top an side view at school, but no good version.
I will hopefully post it today, but Im pretty busy so I can't gurantee it.

PS: An other problem is that I do not have a scanner, and my paents are currently using the digital camera for work-related stuff.
