Krystal's new digs by s0lar1x Krystal's new digs by s0lar1x
Experimenting around with brushes and lighting and stuff, turned out somewhat like this. Some turned out good, some not so good... I'll have yet to fiddle around with some brush settings, they didn't kind of feel right. Yet.

Anyhow, here's Krystal from Starfox games in power armor of sorts, armed with main energy cannons and small miniguns. Sharpclaws beware! :D

Too bad she doesn't have some sort of shield protecting her face otherwise she'll be an easy target.

Yes, I'm a sucker for big destructive weaponry. :D

An exposed head makes for a very easy target.

It would be dangerous against aparoids and most contemporary combatants, assuming they're competent with high-accuracy weaponry. Fortuitously enough most of those who'd oppose the Star Fox team are mooks anyway, and of those who oppose Krystal specifically most use weaponry beyond the defensive capabilities of mech armour.

I like her smirk. Everything else is just awesome.

Why does this have me thinking of the Elemental from Mechwarrior? www.sarna.net/wiki/Elemental_%…

However, when I give it real thought, Krystal's legs would not be able to fit that 'mechs' legs (naturally)...
:ohnoes: Does that mean Krystal was horribly maimed?! oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/s… oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/s… (Bellator in machina?) And how does it effect her telepathy?

You could go make something a little bigger and piloted instead of worn, like one of these Titan's perhaps? www.youtube.com/watch?v=AX4nC7…

Not bad.  I find gun arms versus manipulators to be a tricky balance, though.  Any thoughts on that issue?

(I'm still having a hard time with Carapace [as versus assist exoskeleton] Power Armor Vs. Mini Mecha decision for some of my work, though.  The former can fit into smaller spaces and are less expensive, the latter have a longer operating duration and fare better at heavy lifting.)

Well. I think I find gun arms better for all sorts of attack units and such, and manipulators for something like science and support units. Maybe both for certain types of special units.

*nods*  I think it's a tradeoff.  Sometimes being able to crank open a manual hatch release and clear misfeeds is worth the risk of being disarmed, and you could probably fit an SMG-equivalent backup weapon onto the forearm without impacting dexterity.  (Or for Mini Mecha [eg Armored Trooper, AMP, Kuratas], an LMG or MMG as a backup is plausible.)
