Carriage by Ishutani Carriage by Ishutani
this design is still inadequate :/

great comment from ~probabilitydiver

The main questions I ask about this scene are:

1) Where are the supplies, like water and ammunition for the humans, being carried?

2) If these people get attacked, they're likely to be attacked by something very large. A design like this wouldn't really be reasonable if the carriage itself would be intended to fight things that were short, like mere men. The men at the top probably shoot at them. The carriage is likely to remain erect when it fights things worthy of engagement, since if it bends over, it throws the men out of the top. Maybe you can show some sort of weapon that the carriage itself would use? Something it might carry, or claws on its hands?

~Feedback is appreciated~

I reckon if you made them walk on all fours, like a gorilla, they could carry supplies on the sides like a horse.
really cool idea.

An idea for this behemoth to engage enemy infantry is to have a series of flails that come out from the palm of the hand and the carriage barely has to expend any force to deter any infantry from getting too close. For the bogged threats, I would mount a few cannons on this monster. Maybe some Chinese rocket arrow launchers. That would be a good deterit against any emplacements or large mobile constructs.

To help answer your questions:

1.) Because the design is already so human, you could give it a massive backpack to store the supplies within, or certain parts of the robot can be hollow or you could just outright strap whatever you need with you somewhere near the top.

Or you could make them carry large and complicated looking chests storing everything they need, naturally they would be made very sturdy and when need be they can drop them and engage in fisticuffs.

2.) if the Carriage-bots have to bend over I suggest that the top people-holding bit could be like a bowl on top of the already present bowl within the robot that gyrates according to the angle you want it.

In short the top people-holding-bit constantly moves or angles itself to stop everyone falling out, also to ensure a more comfortable trip.

I quite like the look and the idea of these mechanical fellows, you shouldn't let a little thing like impracticality get in the way of a good idea, eh?
