Prediction – this guy thinks the machine is being built for Gastonia, but the head gnomes are actually going to give it to the beasts. They’ll defeat him and the war machine by revealing the truth, then he’ll destroy it (and kill himself in the process).
Doubtful. They are already enslaving and killing Gnomes. The Gnomes won’t do what’s bad for Gnomes.
Rather, I think, when the war is one, when they have proven themselves and contracts have been signed… they will wait. For petty sqabbles between houses or kingdoms to start up. And then… they will sell the new, improved versions.
To both sides.
I should clarify that this doesn’t preclude them selling things to the beasts as well, just that I don’t think they’ll be directly backing them in an alliance, or giving them the best toys.
Oh well. Once you leave, you can never go Gnome.
Gnomes are a third force in the whole thing, taking Gastonia’s funding and running off.
That, or playing both ends against the middle. Toss some arms to the World’s Rebellion, toss a few more to the Gastonians … but keep the best gear for yourselves. Let them slug it out awhile and spend the best of their strength battering one another. After the war, it’s a simple mop-up operation.
That machine is whirring for a warring.
I think bandit can still mech it out of this okay.
So long as that machine doesn’t tread on her.
Bandit may be in trouble. That command center looks very intuitive. Easily controlled. Very Ergan-gnomic.
All that hard work, and this is the tanks she gets?
I guess Bandit doesn’t like heavy metal. She just can’t tech anymore.
He seeks to climb the ladder of sucess
*play the Metal Gear Solid theme song*
A little Daft Punk for the little daft punk.
Thank you! *slow clap*
why, oh why am i getting this dread of we’re about to see the steam punk version of Skynet and Terminators burning the world.
…so where are they keeping the whore machines then?
In the back corner, next to the gods-of-rock-n-roll machines.
As far away as possible from the frigates.
(that works, right? Sort of?)
Quick, form Friggtron!
how did that kid climb that ladder so fast, and why is bandit suddenly in front of the treads? also, I’m guessing she’ll be able to loose it amongst the other machines (possible robot rumble?)
Bandit spent at least one panel just staring dumbly at the thing, maybe two.
Don’t be ridiculous, kid- Gastonia will never rule. They can’t even beat Concord and Rock Hill! Rock Hill, for fraksake! That place is a rocky, hilly toilet!
Metal Gear, the Early years.
“The” war machine? Looks like a stable full. Also, since Gnometown is all pissed off about Gastonian “peacemakers” up in their shit – why would they be giving Gastonia a war machine? I’m a little confused as to the actual state of affairs between the two kingdoms.
I mean, Col. Pornstache acts like he has the right to *demand* answers from the gnomes; the gnomes act as though Gastonia has deeply offended them even before said demands for answers; and now this – runt – is claiming the war machine is Gastonian property?
The story just got majorly complicated for me. I’ve no idea what the connection between Gastonia, gnomes, the war machine, the savage races and this pirate kid is.
It’s like traitor gnomes are giving weapons to the World’s Rebellion but at the same time they also hate the savage races and the Gastonian government and are working with the pirate kid to develop war machines just because they enjoy doing it regardless of who’s using them and what for which is why they tried to make a deal with Gastonia to make weapons for them (foiled by Bandit) so they were like “Oh well, we’ll just give them to those stupid “savages”, let the world burn woooooo!”.
I’m not complaining though, will be fun to see where this leads.
I think it’s just a matter of arming the enemies but then arming your allies better.
The Gnomes stand to profit off of war.
Fool… smart boy left the hatch open. (more on that later…)
Now then… what would really be fun is Bandit suckering him to chase her up to street level to rampage thru the city.
Mayhem for EVERYONE!!!
The look on Frigg’s face would be priceless…
I also expect that she’ll get him to smash at least a couple of prototypes. Imagine Frigg’s face when Bandit points at a smashed tank and says “I broke that.”
He can rebuild them. He has the technology.
I just want all you Metal Gear referencers to know, I CALLED IT.
Looks like they’ve built several war machines.
Looks like Frigg and Bandit need to get their acts together and form the Science Ninja Team. A Bird Missile would solve this readily.
Did they make the “I built a full-sized boat in my basement” blunder? Cuz that door looks tiny. ‘Course, that thing probably doesn’t need a door.
Last strip, there were huge garage doors off to the side.
“I’m already at the ladder, but oh, he’s just climbing into the cockpit, better run away!”
That’s exactly what I’m thinking. Those sort of things annoy me to no end.
There was a scene in Criminal Minds where someone in an SUV was trying to run a victim over in a parking lot. So what’s the victim do? Runs directly away, and gets smeared on the wall. That brainless idiot deserves to die, given that a parking lot is full of concrete beams and cars that you can run between and a freaking SUV can’t follow!
From what it looks like, it was the choice of turn around and run or wind up on the ground, since it shows the ladder getting thrown to the side by the machine moving. I mean, it seemed like it just to a flip of a switch to get the machine moving, and Bandit can’t move that fast.
Jeff: Yeah, almost mentioned that, too, I hate it when people run _straight_ away from contraptions that don’t steer that well, e.g. around corners.
Amaster: Well, she could’ve hopped onto the machine, would’ve been harder to smear her.
Why not simply throw a dagger into the kid’s back/leg? That’d make him fall and would be the smart thing to do.
OH GOD IT’S THE WAR MACHINE FROM ‘The Princess and the Cobbler’.
THE MIGHTY ONE EYE SHALL RULE ALL
This game truly caters to a wide audience. Here we see WfA reach for the Battletech audience.
This damn kid can climb ladders super fast, I’ll give him that.
Ok, I totally missed the Sundar reference. Who is Sundar?
I’d say she *remove sunglasses* hasn’t got the mettle to face this one down.
So I’m waiting for the kid to peel his face off and reveal he is in fact … RED SKULL.

Confound it, i take A HUNDRED!! :D
