Work Started On Comfy Chair Mechs, Critical Mass Hoverbikes

Well, I'm making good on the declaration that I'd soon be prototyping like a man on fire. Here are the first of several offerings that can be shown.

The Scorpion is a development of the Spidermech I did for Comfy Chair Games. Notice the legs that the two have in common. This is just the bulk-out, more proof of concept than anything. I'll be modifying things to look even meaner, and adding a tail. This is going to be a close-in brawler, but will be able to mount weaponry. Stay Posted.

Also, Critical Mass wanted hoverbikes, so I dug up a design from the archives, and I'll be doing it for them. This is a hoverbike with dual pods, one for lift, the other for motive power. This is the rough-out for the light/scout version. A heavier, "battle-bike" version will be done, with approval.

Well, that's all for now. I've got some overtime this weekend, so prototyping may slip. Tthe day I go to dayshift looms, but I enjoy the pressure of getting these things out by my self-imposed deadline. Who needs sleep anyway.

Like I said before, my upcoming change in scheduling won't be the end of the world, but a large amount of adjustment will happen. Keep the faith.
