With recent surge of attention to Twanks and Twankus, I thought I would continue my series of Chibi Twanks. I made enough to form a whole company

ImageChibi Twank Company

Most of you will most likely recognize the Yellow one from before. It is now joined by its 4 brothers/sisters

ImageChibi Twank Brown
Brown Twankling: d6B Deflector Domes, d6B Flare Tube, d6Y Floodlight, d6Y Comm Antenna, d8G No Ranged Weaponry

ImageChibi Twank Black
Black Twankling: d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Dual Mortar Towers, d6B Armored Plates, d6Y Comm Antenna

ImageChibi Twank Tan
Tan Twankling (Dustashims personal favorite): d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd Obliterator Cannon, and Gun Turret, d6B Armored Plates, d6Y Targeting Scope

ImageChibi Twank Green
Green Twankling: d6Rd d6Rd Obliterator Cannon, d6B d6B Dual Armored Siding Plates, d6G Rear Thruster Tubes

I hope you all enjoyed and I anxiously await any and all comments you wish to share.

It has come to the attention of Twanks LLC. that enemies of the Twankus Family, the Solar Union, and Humanity Itself still exist. As such, we are happy to produce new and exciting weapons based off of our beloved Obliterator line available at a reasonable cost with pay-as-you-go leasing options available. Please contact you local Twanks LLC. office today to inquire about these exciting possibilities!

Twank Overlord:

The modular nature of Twanks allows our highly trained specialists to convert any model of Twank into the new Overlord class featuring a proprietary recoil-dampening accuratizing barrel system for the obliterator cannon which increases the range and accuracy of the obliterator while also reducing the strain on the pilot while firing. Armored skirts extra.

By removing the usual spacious and comfortable Twank cockpit we have been able to outfit the platform with an all new Eradicator Cannon, which uses a new proprietary shell to Seriously Oppress™ any and all threats to your colony and its harmonious functioning.

Glad you savor the flavor. For what it's worth, accuratizing was just me misspelling accurizing, which is a real thing.

That's just right, son!


In honor of Artasid pioneering chibis, I made a baby Mk. 3:

I liked the turret design, so I messed around with a full body spyrius pattern:

And because I had a little inspiration from Pj_Nichts, I thought I'd make a super-twank:

Really enjoyed the 3 wide Mk 3, the sleeker feel really works, and I see you are making good use of that great bullbar piece as well, really nice!

That being said, is excellent to see the classic Twank design being experimented with again!

I thank you for the shout-out Atavism, but I cannot take the credit. I have seen several chibi, baby and mini Twanks by other people before I started bricking my own. I was just trying to help bring more attention back to Twanks in general.
However, your baby MK3 inspired me to make 2 more so I hope you don't mind

This one is more of a fusion of Twank and my own Swamp Skite

Twanks are very good at what they do. But what happens when you come across a Twank that's TOO good at what it does? Trick Question, Twanks are always TOO good!

Classic Twank will never die!

Glad you like the designs. The thinner body did turn out nice, but seeing Art's version with the fuller turret I think I missed the mark playing around with the magnet claw piece...

I need to get some physical bull bars....

That's terrific. I need to play around with hover skirt Twanks. Thicker bases (like quads) really suit their body type and that skirt design is great.

The Polar Twank does what it's name suggests. It's suited for artic terrain, mainly the rocky mountain slopes and alpine peaks, where few frames can cross safely. But the Polar Twank can cross these areas with ease using its Quad Mobility to secure a foothold, and also using it's Thermal Jumpers to scale across the rough terrain. And though this current model equips the patented Obliterator Cannon as it's primary weapon, it does feature hardpoints for additional system loadouts, ensuring this Twank can be outfitted to suit whatever role is needed.

P.T.: d6Rd d6Rd Obliterator Cannon, d6Y Anntenna, d6G Quad Mobility, d6G Thermal Jumpers.

I really like this one.

Is it still a Twank if it doesn't appear to be precariously balanced and incapable of righting itself should it topple?

Friendly reminder that artillery and recoilless rifles are used to trigger controlled avalanches in peace time to keep people safe, so an Arctic Twank shouldn't feel strange for being armed. https://youtu.be/v_BPcqIL0KY

I like the way the cutout gives it an asymmetric, sporty look. I can forgive the blasphemously useful looking legs! :lol:

Nothing, SamSam. Just joking about how terrible and useless the traditional Twank legs are.

The legs were what inspired this build. I was experimenting with a new quad core, but when it came time to make the central unit of the frame, only a Twank chassis seemed worthy
