Walker Assault by ukitakumuki Walker Assault by ukitakumuki
Battle-worn company of walkers moving quickly through a narrow pass.

I added my usual preference of wargear to the AT-STs, obviously keeping canon in mind and always making sure that whatever I've added have somehow appeared in SW stories at some point. In this image I thought it would be nice to show a different loadout for the different walkers in a company. The light footed scout to the left of the image sporting long range mortars bolted to the upper rear of the turret, communications antenna and 6-pack dumbfire rockets for harrassment. Also small, lightweight reactive armour plates to cover the vulnerable battery packs on the underside of the turret.

The main lead unit just has to have a nonchalant cool-headed gunner who is probably soaking in the sunrise :p, and it also sports 2 rotating grenade launcher mounts on its lower cheeks, plus a winch system under the main chin gun and shielded weapon systems.

Done for Sony Online Entertainment's Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game.

There are mechs, there are walkers, but few capture what such machines are like for combat - the AT-ST in Jedi captured it for me and you have taken this to a new level.

It feels so feesable - I can see a convoy of them striding up the road, in line, troops sticking out of the top turret, fatigued. This image conveys it to perfection.

I could rant why Star Wars is not like this...but I won't.

Quality sir - just quality.

And my favorite, the AT-PT in the back! :D

Your AT-STs make sense. I'd feel safer in a company of your STs than the standard ST battalions.
