Angie Bamblett

Mechanical Designer. A mechanical engineer, Angie is the Battlebots rookie of the team. She’s designed and built MANY things, but Icewave 2015 was her first fighting robot. When she’s not neck-deep in CAD and calculations for Icewave, she works as a product designer for Double Robotics, Inc.

John HammarI say it would be difficult for Tombstone to get close enough to deal armor damage, not without Bill installing some sort of counter-torque mechanism to get in the blades of ICEwave as they spin back up.

Bryce Thomasi'm going with Icewave as Icewave's spinning bar, is at 54 inches (4.5 feet) long, tip to tip, is the largest weapon ever recorded in history of robot combat.

Kenny FrandsenWow. Which has more reach with their weapons? It looks like tombstone swings low enough to hot icewaves base before icewave can get tombstones chain.

Angel FlowersI want to say tombstone but icewave is the right height to takeout that chain.

Rory CharlesworthVery difficult to call actually, but I think it's possible Warhead could get the upper hand. It has a lot of moving and lifting parts, and Icewave simply cannot handle being turned over.

Austin GeorgeI'm going with Icewave because Icewave's weapon never bounced across the battlebox floor like a rock skipping on a lake.

Kenny FrandsenYeah, ice wave for the brute force. The best warhead would be able to do would be to block the faster than death blades with its face.
