You may recall the Warrior of the Wastes, and it's journey to Haven. Well, after they got rested up, and repaired their machine, they headed back to the Mediterranea. Upon their arrival, the Warrior was outfitted with thermal armor, and the crew was promptly shipped out with an expeditionary force to scout for resources in mid-to-northern Europe.
As you can see, this is essentially an arctic version of the Warrior of the Wastes. To keep with the style established by the original, I used ATV bodies as the lower legs (the previous Wastes version uses dirtbike shells). I'm also fairly pleased with the color blocking, if I do say so myself.
Oh yeah, this also has a one-up over the Wastes variant in one critical are: This one can stand up on its own. No supports or clips needed.
I actually like the small feet, ignoring the 'winter' theme. With the bulky hips, it reminds me of the hunters from Half-Life 2 Ep 2. It's impressive that it's balanced well enough to stand on them, but I'd imagine it hurts the mech's ability to be posed and stay standing.
I like it

I like the shape of the 'body', you integrated the sloped pieces well and makes it look really solid. I agree the feet look to small to make for a good snow mech, but I like the pieces you used on the thighs and using trikes for the lower legs seems to work pretty well.
