Robot week - day 4, SG15-V13 Work Bots

GZG’s workbots can provide a useful set of helping hands for colonists and civilians wherever they may be.

These “R2” styled droids are best suited to work indoors and in urban areas.  One of these is a military surplus unit as shown by its dull green colour scheme.  The other is in a more normal cilvilian colour scheme.  They are mainly used in techical work.

Tracked work-bots can perform all sorts of tasks, and their motive type makes them one of the best suited for outdoor work as they can cover a wide area over rough terrain at good speed.  They’re also very durable.  As you can see here, one of these droids is very old, rusty & battered but is still going strong.

I believe the smaller robot is quite good with plants (for those who haven't seen it, take a look at the film "Silent Running").  It's a bit clumsy at times and walks with a bit of a waddle, but it's a hard worker.

An excellent little group of robots from GZG, you get 2 of each type in the pack.  I haven't shown the other 2 duplicates here as they're still part way through painting.

 The other figures are GZG technicians/crew for scale, from pack SG15-V04.

  1. Great set of droids, really nicely painted. I especially like the weathering on the trash-compactor droid, & the grubby overalls.
