In the ancient world, sieges were long, drawn out, and dangerous for all sides. Assaults were almost impossible... until the designs of Polyidus came along. With his great machines, nowhere was safe. Now, nowhere is safe for robots. Team Worst Swordsman is proud to present to the New Blood Championship:



<div class='spoiler_toggle'>Some (rather large) pictures</div><div class="spoiler" style="display:none;">Image

Speed: 6
Traction: 4
Torque: 3
Weapon: 7 (5 grabber / 5 lifter)
Armour: 10

Helepolis is a robot styled after Gabriel, but with a non-damaging weapon (and yes, Gabriel's weapon causes damage) in the form of a grabber. Helepolis' body can spin around its axis, and this is what forms the lifter element of the weapon; its huge reach combined with a fast-acting electric grabber means it can deliver almighty suplexes and even potentially dump bots out of the arena&#33; The grab-and-lift is counterweighted by hinged spikes at the back connected to an electromagnet; when the grabber is engaged on an opponent, the spikes are locked in place, allowing it to lift the opponent rather than just spin its wheels when performing a grab. It's a daunting prospect for anyone to face, even powerful spinners; horizontals especially have little ability to damage its main body, just like with Gabriel. Helepolis has arrived, and it's here to take titles as well as cities. =]

Configuration One: 5 speed ~ 4 traction ~ 1 torque ~ 14 weapon ~ 6 armour
Configuration Two: 5 speed ~ 4 traction ~ 1 torque ~ 11 weapon ~ 9 armour (+3 plow)

The spikes on the wedge are removable. Can self right really reliably the same way that Electric Boogaloo does.[/font]

Lightning War Mk. VII


A flipper/lifter combination.

Speed 8
Traction 6
Torque 2
Weapon 5 ([4 - Flipper / 1 - Lifter] Split)
Armor 9 (+2 to flipper, which means - 2 to the rest)

Flipper actuates a la Iron-Awe 2.1, Top mounted lifter actuates a la S8 Storm 2 around 115 degrees, electric gear driven.

Lifter is useful for selfrighting and if a robot is driven forwards and up the flipper, it can then be slid up the lifter and pushed with it around, increasing the control factors of the robot and making OOTAs easier. The robot can selfright with the lifter, or angle itself with the lifter back onto the flipper to allow the flipper to selfright.

The Orange leading wedge is hinged with a 15 degree limiter in both directions, meaning that while it is groundscraping it won't shift much during flipping.
