We hope your holidays are going well, and that you are getting all that you want, and very little of what you deserve! ;)
After the Skorpios preview we received a couple of emails asking "what's a Battle-armor?" Well, I'll tell you; In the Spec-Sec world Battle-armor is an anthropomorphic armored "suit" that uses a master-slave waldo type control setup, most often augmented with limited direct neural interface for better fine motor control. So, basically... it's a Landmate.
Here is a WIP of a 15mm scale Police Battle-armor used in dealing with heavily augmented cyber-psychos, full borgs, urban Drive-armor confrontations, and fighting with other battle-armors. They cannot stand up to the sort of punishment a Skorpios can dish out, nor are they intended for true battlefield use, despite their type designation misnomer. They just cannot carry the armor necessary. But man are they agile...
Please note that the separate "master" arms and "bunny ear" A/V units are tacked on for show, but will be separate pieces. The A/V units will come in versions with the sensors and lenses covered and extended, allowing the end-user to position them up, down, extended, flapping like wings, whatever.
Three poses will be part of the first release. More are planned, of course, as well as other models.
Hope you like it!
