The Robot Gun Spiders could have a close combat, long range artillery, and anti-aircraft variants.
The basic chassis could be quad or hexi pedal with a couple of large manipulators at the front end with a turret like structure on top where the main armaments are mounted.
The manipulators would of course be designed for clearing rubble or wooded areas so the unit could dig-in and have some cover.
So a sprue with the body and legs, a couple of kinds of manipulators (snippers, graspers, etc) a turret with a plug in center containing the arty piece/anti aircraft gun/glacis plate, and some guns to go on the sides, either long range blasters or close up support weapons.
To stay safe the driver would remain in the turret area, so perhaps instead of a superior cockpit there would just be a sensor pod of some sort.

Incidentally this is one of the sculpts we did for the "design a leader" pledges. Might be a good stylistic base to work from for Skinnerz walkers?

Love the Walker pic. can the Skinnerz have an Elite Cadre that resemble Russian/Gestapo uniforms,
line with special guns, jump and infultrators... with a couple of variants of these walkers in a drop pattern,
also Gobblers in the same style uniforms and/or in ww1 spiked german helmets...

+1 for some kind of heavy crab walker unit with options

could the resourceful Skinners ride Boars, perhaps with stollen slave prods for lances?

also Skinners on toyota pickups with miniguns on pivot

Love it! Maybe increase the bowlegged-ness of the legs just a hair to increase that gorilla stance, but almost all exactly what I was thinking. It's distinctively Skinnerz while still being a perfectly adequate proxy for other game lines.

That's fantastic - would love to see a cybershadow version too...

Perhaps a close combat version, with a pilot hardwired in a crossed position on the front? Or would it be pushing too far?

I was thinking it might be a kinda cyborg exo frame with the pilot hardware in. When the skinners nature one the rip out the pilot and bolt on some controls. 'Course the pilot could also be armoured up instead... and cc options might be useful too...

I do not personally envision cybershadow walkers with exposed pilots.

I don't recall seeing any of these in the matrix! Maybe they would use them if they had decided to make a sequel to the matrix, but everybody knows there was only one matrix film and any more than that would be awful.... ;D
