I'd suggest you consider wheeled/tracked transportation instead, or perhaps one of the insect/spider multilegged designs. Maintaining a two-legged stance is NOT easy.

Multi leg walkers are a good start. OR make your figure push something to effectively make it a multi leg walker. EG a person pushing a push chair or a wheel barrow or a bike, or two people together become a 4 leg beast.

A multi leg doesn't always need to be a spider!

It's actually very hard for us to balanced on 2 legs but we generally have practised until it becomes second nature. We use a lot of brain power just standing still.

There is a lot of logic in having 3 legs, always evenly balanced, a reasonable gate 2 + 1, able to ambulate in any direction etc.

Walkers are HARD! but NOT impossible. For human like legs - carve from foam polystyrene (the building insulation sort) light weight and fairly strong.

Shufflers aren't bad, striding is WAY above most folks skill set.
