Hey, those are awesome, any reason for not posting them in your Chubdam thread?

Figured it was easier to post here for a change :P Once I brick them up I'll add them to the Chubdam page.

The Tumble Tiger is a standard Chub space proofed and outfitted with off the shelf parts to supplement the Terran Transit Marines squads' far more advanced Ospreys housed in the Byron System's Transit Gate. The Tumble Tiger is designed to engage with enemy frames that have made it to the surface of the Gate and dislodge them. Because projectile weapons or plasma edges may inadvertently damage the Gate, the Tiger executes its mission in a less orthodox fashion. Using a system of 14 thrusters and fueled by 4 additional fuel tanks, the Tiger barrels into enemy frames at high velocities, using a combination of its crash shield and twin eskrima batons to bullrush them, usually into the killzones of point defense clusters or the TTM Ospreys.

Yeah I agree, that's a great build, love the use of pieces, and love the backstory to go along with it :)

Excellent color choice VitorFaria. I never would have thought to use a Chub as the base for a BattleMech. I'll have to try that with some of the other humanoid mechs. :lol:

Thanks, folk!

The Chub is a very versatile humanoid base, guys like Ryan can attest that!

I'm pretty sure one could make plenty of 'mechs on top of it!

Agreed! These have a ton of variety, both in the theme and the design.

Thanks! Sadly, these ones have all been scrapped for parts for a while now, but they were fun to make while I was still starting out (and they were also an excellent lesson on how not to delegate systems :P )

These have been on my flickr for about a week. I figured I should add them to the thread.
