Also from Total Annihilation, the Fast Assist Repair Kbot (F.A.R.K.) acts as the ARM's field medic. It can channel a stream of nanobots to repair damaged units from the multiple storage tanks on its back. The F.A.R.K. itself has no weapons of it's own, though if threatened, could spray nanobots around itself to act as a defensive screen against projectiles and to disrupt energy beams, or to even temporarily cloud an enemies vision if they get too close.

Thanks to TheMugbearer's recent Total Annihilation MOC post, here, I was inspired to try a few designs he posted. Using his as a starting point, I bricked an ARM and CORE Construction Kbot, with a few small changes to make them more Frame ready scale.

ImageTA's Construction KBots
Construction Kbots: d6B Nano-Lathes, d6G No Ranged Weaponry

They even have deployable and retractible Nano-Lathes! A simple feature that won't effect gameplay, but none the less AWESOME!!!

Thanks again to TheMugbearer for sharing and I do intend to use more of his mocs as a starting point for future TA builds.

That FARK has a creepy look to it, I like it a lot. It's a really good design to keep in mind :)

No fancy backstory for this one, sorry. Just wanted to make another space specialized frame

I've also been on a space specialty Frame kick lately. Using the Pneuma-T for a greeble on this is an interesting choice.

Thanks Mantisking, using the T-Piece for a chest detail was a spontaneous decision, and though it looks interesting, I may rethink using it again in the future, since I'm already low enough on T-pieces anyway. Maybe after I restock? :lol:

This next random uses the same leg construction as my Chubturions. I know it uses an extensive amount of clips and padlocks, but the aesthetic is too tempting to pass up. And before anyone asks, yes I stole Orbital Barons shield for this build.

Both the Orbital Baron and the Centaurian are pretty neat designs, interestingly I love the shield on both of them ;)

The Aero Expedition Frame is perhaps one of the more bizarre designs so far encountered. Because of it's unique design, it is speculated to be a rather recent addition to the Ijadhi as the frame seems to mimic that of some airborne creature not yet known to humans. When these frames were first spotted, one appeared to be conducting some form of scientific survey while its companion floated nearby. Judging by it's obvious weapons array, the second one's duty is more combative, perhaps acting as an escort.
However, further analysis could not be completed as they had left the area before more could be recorded.

TAN: d6Ra d6Ra Swarmer Missile Box, d6B Hardened Back Plate, d6G Thrusters
RED: d6Y d6Y Sonar and Antenna, d6G Thrusters, d8G No Ranged Weaponry

I love these, they have a great shape with the turtle shell and long sloping neck. Recontextualizing them as airborne creatures is really interesting too. Great stuff.

Thank you Aardvark17, the idea for the shape came from an old 'mockumentary' video about sending probes to explore an alien planet. The concept of an airborne only exploration unit seemed like my kind of weird, lol.


The Freefall Infiltration Frame Equipment, or FIFE, traces its origins from the now outdated Cling-On Battlearmor. Various clamps are on the back of this frame which allows it to be mounted on the underside of aerial transports for quick deployment. FIFE's are designed for combat drops, aerial raids, and Quick-drop reinforcements, and though they are equipped with Jump Jets, these only serve to decline their rate of decent when freefalling into the battlezone, and provide only limited jump capabilities upon decent completion. As a frame, it is better equipped and defended than the standard jump infantry that is still used today.

What the Cling-On Battlearmor pioneered, the FIFE's perfected.

FIFE: d6Rd d6Rd Combat Rifle, d6B Buckler, d6Y Targeting Scope, d6G Jump Jets, d8Rr White Capped Shoulder mounted SSR

Looks like one of these. You might be able to add stuff on to it, but I can't tell how much clearance there is between the bar and the torso from this image, so maybe not.

Correct

Unfortunatly in it's current state, I can't. There is no clearance between the bars and the 2x1 plate used for the chest. However, a clip can be attacted to the torso's "shoulder" peg as you can see I used one to attach the white capped SSR. I primarily thought the bars would make for an interesting detail for the build, hence their inclusion.
Also, a robo claw can be inserted through the torso 'Neck' on the back to add more customizing hardpoints.

The SpiedStryde is a spider frame that is deployed mainly for combat recon missions. It's quad locomotion, paired with Jumping Pods enable great mobility to cross most types of terrain. Should it need to defend itself, the frame is equipped with a Sting Laser, and a comms antenna to relay reports or to signal it's allies when aid is needed.

I am currently in the process of obtaining more parts in order to do just that 8-) The leg stilts are the hardest to find currently. These ones I got from an X-Wing polybag, which for some odd reason is no longer being sold at the location I normally buy my parts. Just gotta keep looking


It is called the Tunnel Rat, though many mistakenly call it Mole due to it's overall design shape. The Tunnel Rat, despite the confusion of its name, has started proliferating among mining and excavation industries for its ease of use, multiple floodlights for better visibility as well as its sturdy build, which has prevented injury or death from cave-ins. These factors have also made it a target for Free Colonist rebels and Frame hackers, who then often replace the grinder arm with some other system more suited for their needs.
