Because they describe at least one War machine picking people up and tossing them into a great basket on its back.
I am assuming possibly wrongly that not ll of them have the basket, but this can be built without using it if preferred

Thank you. I toyed with the idea of jointing the knees as well, but due to the printing tolerances they would have had to be too thick. Also the way they are described as moving in the book knee joints seemed less important than making the body/leg joints work. Boith it and the Martian handler machine are designed to be (vaguely) reminiscent of respectively a Jellyfish and a Spider crab as Wells saw an exhibit on marine life shortly before writing War of the Worlds and claimed it was inspiring. The martian flying machine, from the brief description, was likely inspired by the stingray but i haven't done one of those yet

Beautiful piece of work, with ball & socket joints that (well, very nearly...) work at the base of all limbs! One of the closest designs to Wells' description I've seen.
