Here's my last minute entry for the droid contest.

The Antlion Droid:




Embarassed Here are larger pics: Scale comparison and More views

Backstory (and some clarifications): Ok, so the main thing you will be wondering is why is this in CIS colors. After the clone wars, many of the CIS designs and projects ended up in empire hands. As we all know, the best example is the death star, which was a grand plan of Dooku's, and also other droid designs. The Antlion was in prototype phase just before the abrupt end of the war, it had amazing durability and speed, but it sacrificed firepower. The two underpowered blasters in the front are compensated by it's buff body, powerful front legs for bashing and frontal attacks, and it's shield generator (like the droideka's) in the back. The front legs serve as heavy close combat weapons, and also as protection from ranged fire. While the stubby short rear legs offer stability and traction.

Xeta, I might be stretching the guidelines here, I hope it's still considered within the limits of "small" . I was just judging it's size compared to really big droids such as the giant spider droids, and vulture droids.

Comments welcome.

The armor on this one is the best! Stickers are soo cool too. However, it'd look more imperial if you replaced the tan with dark gray and find an alternative for the battle droid heads.

I'd say it's plenty small for the contest, good work. Looks gorilla-ish.

An Empire version is on it's way, I hope I can find something to replace the droid heads. Nannan, in case you didn't read the backstory, that's my excuse ..for now Razz .

Thanks for the comments.

Daaaang...those decals really sell it. And the leg design is very well engineered, if I do say so myself.

Awesome! Reminds me of the Basilisk War Droid from KOTOR.

Looks very insect/ spider-like, how I think droids should look.

I'm done with the Imperial version:



I managed to find a replacement for the droid heads in the front, there were more parts actually in than that I don't have any in blay. I used the same stickers too.
