So the pan for AWS 56 is to turn up with 4 new bots:

Robototron Mk 5: Tracked lifter

Crabulon: Shufflebot. Not sure I will get as far as a active weapon on this one at the moment.

OAF 3: Critical Fail: A D&D inspired take on the hamsterball concept

R.E.X: Tracked Clampbot.

At the moment all 4 are in the design phase.

Going to save my spinner aspirations for the next AWS at least. The aim for this AWS is for me to finally get 3D printed bots to a AWS.

I shall post some pics when I get the chance

Been having lots of fun printing ABS...

Not 100% there but getting close to printing some pretty good looking parts out of ABS. hopefully means I will have some assembled bots soon.

The PLA test version of Crabulon weighed in at 160g with 20% print. Still lots of weight to add armor, weapons etc but I have redesigned it to use less material for the final print. Id ideally like it to be under the wheeled ant limit prior to any additions.

I still have hopes of all 4 bots making it to AWS 56 at the moment.
