Happy New Year to one and all! We here at Darkest Star Games truly hope that 2013 finds you all well and that this year is a much better year than the last. (It was supposed to be the last, right? Darn those ancient Mayans and their practical jokes...) (side-note: Cyberpunk 2013 was one of my mainstay RPGs when I was in High School. Now it's here it is 2013 and still no flying cars, neural jacked cyberdecks, nor rampaging cyborgs. Maybe we should be thankful for not having that last one...)
So, on with the preview!
This almost cute little guy is the Drive-armor that Spec-Sec forces utilize for big dust-ups. Designed to be able to switch out self contained modular weapons systems on the fly, this as-yet unnamed Drive-armor can quickly adapt to changing mission profiles, switching out that 90mm BFG for small caliber rotary canons with dum-dum rounds for urban use with a few turns of a wrench.
The grey "shoulder" pods are separate pieces that can be switched out for the weapon mount type pods, and the socket can also accept the larger weapons from the Skorpios(!) There is also a mounting point below the mech's "chin". And of course those arms are, um ...armed.
Pictures of the weapons will come along later, of course.
And here (below) is a pic of the two smaller Drive-armors together, with the obligatory "15mm man" for scale reference. And yes indeed, these guys are larger than the Fuchikomas and Tachikomas of the Ghost In The Shell mangas. We wanted our mechs to be more beefy and survivable, more vehicular. That doesn't mean that there aren't smaller types running around though...
