Here's the news! Both the newest batch of sci-fi cars and the newest Spec-Sec battle-armor (now to be called the Pugio strike-type) are soon to be released! Very soon. Can't wait!
And what could go better with our valiant Spec-Sec defenders new high-power toys than something the "bad guys" can bring around to do a little "street rock tango"? The Think-Heads call this the Pila type battle-armor:
Designed by the nefarious (and talented!) Charles Oines, these nasty brutes are stripped down military-grade purveyors of destruction. Though a Landmate style armor similar to the Parma and Pugio, the Pila's operators "master" arms remain within an armored body rather than exposed. In the mostly urban environments where Spec-Sec is forced to operate, exposed "master" arms are not seen as a liability, allowing the Parma and Pugio to be both lighter and more agile than battlefield types of combat-armors. The Pila, however, has greater survivabillity when large explosions and flying shrapnel are the tune of the day. And rather than being weighed down with the normal military over-the-shoulder heavy weapons typical of battlefield deployment, this group has been modified with jets allowing for fantastic leaps and high speed ground-effect flight. All in all, a very effective weapon in the hands of a terrorist or enemy agent...
More on the Pila later! We just sent these beasties off to be printed. There are 4 poses, and 6 different pairs of arms. I know the images above shows only 6 arms, but there will be mirrors of those made so we have 3 right arms with guns, 3 left arms with guns, 3 right arms with claws, and 3 left arms with claws. Yes, you'll be able to make dual-wield pistoleers or double clawed smash-beasts! (and who wouldn't!)
More info as soon as we have the masters in hand and are ready to start casting. Stay tuned!
