First and foremost, hello again everyone! I have returned after a long absence. Some personal events that I won’t elaborate on made me leave, but I have returned. My first post here on my return will not be a BIONICLE MOC, but a Star Wars one instead. This MOC was created because I thought the legs of my personal self-MOC (which I will post sometime soon) looked like they would work as walker legs, and so I designed the walker around them.
I have had a non-canon Star Wars company called “D.I./GECO” (Defense Industries / Galactic Engineering COmpany) that I use for branding my custom Star Wars creations under. This company primarily designs and produces war machines for the New Republic of the old Expanded Universe. Here is a general description of the walker itself:
This the DI/GECO ATW-1024-10 All Terrain Walker. It is larger and more powerful than an Imperial All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT). It is designed to generally improve and outspec the AT-AT. The ATW-1024-10 also addresses an issue the AT-AT has with tow cables, meaning that the ATW-1024-10 should be much more resistant to tripping up with tow cables than its Imperial counterpart is. However, it is not immune to that tactic by any means, as it is an issue any walker is likely going to face just due to the fact that a walker uses legs to get around. There are three variants of the ATW-1024-10, those being the 10 Base model, the 10S Snow/Cold Environment model, and the 10H High Temperature Environment model, each with different specs due to the adaptations required for each variant. As such, I will be listing only the specs of the Base model, the 1024-10.
-2 Chin mounted Turbolasers
-2 Chin mounted weapon hardpoints
-1 Upper back weapon hardpoint (Hidden under durasteel armor plates when not in use) I might post a picture showcasing this at a later point in time.
Note: Chin is capable of swiveling downwards to allow for a greater amount of weapons fire coverage than would otherwise be possible.
-Heavy Durasteel Armor Plating
-2 Heavy Duty Shield Projectors mounted on the front of the body of the walker
–Requires walker to halt all movement in order for shields to fully and completely activate
TROOPS & CREW:
Troop Capacity (When no weaponry is mounted on the walker’s back):
Crew: 2 Drivers in the walker’s head
POWER GENERATION: DI/GECO ATW-1024-10 Fusion Power Generator: Consists of three smaller fusion generators. Can operate on only two of the smaller generators if need be.
Recommended maximum velocity on flat ground: 65 km/h
Note: Can push 72 km/h at the cost of greatly increasing the amount of strain the walker’s machinery is under, thus greatly increasing the chance of mechanical failure.
OPTIMAL OPERATING RANGE: 975km (487.5km radius from starting point) when fully loaded
CARGO CAPACITY: 1 metric ton

This image was re-rendered on my new computer specifically for this post. The rest of these images were rendered on my older computer and is the reason why they are a smaller resolution than this one. All of my new posts should have pictures that are 3840 by 2160.
Rendering engine used is BlueRender. You can find it here.
Any and all constructive criticism/feedback is welcome.
