Black Wolf - Dominance War II

Mechanical evolution, long known as a far more efficient process than mere organic evolution. Through dozens of earth-decades the natural silicate supercomputers buried deep in the asteriods have been seeking a solution. The purpose: efficiently wiping out specific members of the organic groups of un-neccessaries. The age long processes are nearing their completion. The great mining droids are spinning up their great isodiamond drills in preparation for production. The end of chaos is near. The ultimate solution is here.

Thought Process

My major weakness is pseudo-neccessary components. That is why this will probably one of the more thought through designs in these competitions. Here goes.


Ideas

Power Source
Every robot needs a source of power, It needs to be available in large quantities, be non-volatile, never run out and look awesome.
  1. Fusion + Capacitor
  2. Universal Background Radiation
  3. Anti-matter Generator
  4. Battery
  5. Chemical

Weapons
A Shadow Warrior needs to be able to take out a target from several miles away, or go for the personal touch with poison or a simple blade. A robot will always choose the most logical option, but choice is nice for any race.
  1. Highly Customisable Rail Gun
  2. Blade (High tech, extendible, physical?)
  3. Poison vials
  4. Assorted concealed tools

Communication
What would be the point of completing a kill if the hive-mind doesn't know about it? From flashy to simple, here are some options.
  1. Entangled photon communicator
  2. Holo Banner
  3. Multi Spectrum Transmitter (For communication with organics)

Senses
  1. Multi Spectrum Analyser
  2. Vibration Analyser
  3. High Definition distance calculator
  4. Communicator
  5. Power Level Indicator
  6. Process Completion Level

Armour and other protection
The additional weight of additional armour is a complex consideration. While the loss of one unit is insignificant, the loss of a Shadow Warrior means the waste of precious highly refined metals. The risk of giving the enemy a highly evolved design also demands particular priority.
  1. Diamond-Fiber Composite Shell
  2. Liquid Armour (over joints)
  3. Active Extended Combat Armour
  4. Context Energy Release

Movement
Both highly accurate and incredibly fast, the sophisticated design of a robots 'muscles' demands the most efficient solution.
  1. Piston Function
  2. Gyroscopic Stabilising
  3. Generated Muscle Fiber

Enemy Weaknesses
Each enemy will have its own weakness, a common weakness may hold an interesting solution.
  1. They are all organic!
  2. Robots move REALLY fast

EDIT: Additional Details Based on Rules

Proficiencies
This Shadow Warrior has an emphasis on stealth, so its proficiencies are as follows.
  1. Penetration
  2. Assassination,
  3. Sharp Shooting,
  4. Hand to Hand Combat Specialist
  5. Stealth
  6. Spying
  7. Deception (isnt that spying?)
  8. Searching
  9. Tactician (Ala that movie with the two snipers facing off. This would be the guy that won)
  10. Weapon Specialist (If you have it, it can use it)

Race
Highly Evolved Robot. Ie: It is a robot but it moves like a highly evolved animal

Vehicle
A Pet/Steed is allowed, how does a small reconaissance bot sound? Ala Tau bot.

Concept Design II

Simple sketch, proportions are little off. Basically here trying to get a design that can be effective on four legs, good for moving quickly under cover.

Ace, is this going to be more robot based or Cyborg based? Cause to me the texture of the thing looks like its almost going to be lizzard like, if that makes sense. Sooo i'm thinking it's more cyborgey? Or maybe even a bit of both :P

Anyways, good to see thoughts going through your head

Thanks all!
Opul:I like to see thoughts going through my head aswell . About lizardness, it is going to perhaps look reptillian, and it will of-course have snake like speed. But when running I want a long loping stride more like a wolf or a big cat. Maybe I should look up some reptiles

Concept Design VI

So little is known about the stealth drones utilised by the Warrior Elite of 3D Total that records are few and far between, here was one document recovered from a recently decimated outpost of Polycount's that may or may not be an accurate representation.
