Starting a new character that I haven't tried before for Traveller, Companion Robots the idea came to me from Eerie Magazine
I remember reading the Hunter and Hunter II series back when I was younger, and how they would just make it out of almost any situation by the skin of their teeth.
Going to make the character using help from Travellers black book "Robots" now the robots to use will be from Mega Minis "Small War-bots" http://freeboardgamesnow.com/smallwar-bots20mmtall.aspx they say there 20mm tall and that should work for my project. I have just ordered two sets before they close shop June 1st. and they should be here any day now.
plus I want to use Khurasan Miniatures http://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/ police/security robots part number TTC-3005 they just have that look to me that would work well.
These are from GZG http://shop.groundzerogames.net/ under 2mm Germy's micro minis. I have seen them on another site where they are used as pack mules and mobile power units, they would be great for your planet safari adventures.
I will work it up and play test it a few times and post my results.
Update 5/24/2013 here's the link for Germy's AT-ATs as mobile power units http://gwargamesp.fr.yuku.com/topic/7183#.UWxheLWHx8E
