Imperial Walkies! by Rob-Caswell Imperial Walkies! by Rob-Caswell
Traveller joyfully grabbed influences from across the SF genre and Star Wars & anime were not immune. This post is by request for Colourbrand. Traveller didn't have many walkers (in fact this may have been about the only one, back when I was working on the property). This one is from Digest Group's "101 Vehicles". I forget the description, but it might have been for a local militia, so not a true "Imperial walker". FYI, the original drawing is quite small...4.25" from sole to antenna tip. So what you're seeing here is quite a blown up image.

"Traveller" is a trademark of Far Future Enterprises.

Actually, the vehicle is a Siega Class Strider, and it is TL - 12. It is vehicle #16 in Digest Group Publications's "101 Vehicles. It was published in 1988. The Dynchia are first mentioned in the Game Designer's Workshop publication, "The Journal of the Traveller's Aid Society, Issue # 24.

Well I can tell you that the illustration, as designed, was a Dynchia class. It probably got changed between assignment and publication. That happened LOTS. Between the time the art spec is made and the draft is called final, designers are constantly tweaking. I probably saw this most with 2300 A.D.

Given the man-sized silhouette that must be one cramped ride.

Either that or some serious miniaturization on the guts.
Plus it's not really made for "plus-sized warriors" ;)

Maybe the silhouette is of a Dynchia man, so a bit taller than the average humaniti? :-)

Pretty cool walker design! :D As you can probably tell by my love of the AT-PT, I have a real soft spot for small, light walkers. The Locust and Flea were my favorite battlemechs from Battletech, and I loved the AMP units from Avatar (all the military hardware from that movie was awesome). I like the blockiness of this design. It's functional and looks like what it's designed to do. :)
