OK, it's been awhile since the last posting (simply been busy with other stuff quietly going on) but, hope to get a good amount of new TKP works up starting here
For everyone who digs walking tanks, here are a pair of new ones based on small thumbnail sketches (much like these [link]
Clearly a pair of quad walker assault guns evoking WWII Germany's designs like the Jagdpanther, Jagedpanzer, Hetzer, etc. Classic armor cues.
The Blid Wolfspinne EVO 4, is manufactured on the planet Indus in the political bloc of Germane (an echo, in the some 3000 years in the future TKP timeline, of the long gone real world nation of Germany). It's an evolution of this earlier tank: [link]
The Wolfspinne EVO 4 version here has additional radome sensor equipment that also might be operating a similarly mysterious ECM frequency as this 5th gen FOIL here: [link]
The other tank is the Blau-Nas Aupanz D-32 built, on Polemos, by the respected FOIL manufacturer Dies. As with the Wolfspinne, the Blau-nas sports a similar assault gun configuration. The tank is painted in a pattern breaker approach using the panels and typography of the machines design rather than painting a random camouflage pattern.
Both tanks primary role would be city defense or front line artillery bombardment during the early stages of FOIL combat, as per the rules of engagement (though these rules eventually erode altogether once the Siege of the Black Son occurs). Also, important to note, even walking tanks use a form of the FOIL's enigmatic anti-gravitic Icar drive to assist with weight issues. It's usage doesn't allow for flight but subtle assistance to the tanks operation and stability. The tank crews have zero understanding of how this works, and like the FOILs, if the Icar unit is damaged it has to be serviced by specialized personnel.
Like many things in the Theos setting both tanks are driven by ghostly familiar aesthetics from humanities fractured past yet also distinctly visually defined by their place and time in the Polemon campaign.
