Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

So, I managed to, over the weekend, get lineart done for the Fáfnir , that Halfbeak-class recolor I did a while back. Its colors are basically the same as the Geirail Nachtritter(see above) because its Commanding Officer was formerly the Nachtritter's pilot. BTW, this is her . Haven't really fleshed...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

So if I'm reading this correctly - the English-translated sections, anyway - the AN-01 literally is a kitbash of sorts, being put together from a mish-mash of salvaged parts from different mobile suits(apparently including the NT-1) and newly-developed parts.
Huh. Interesting.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Interesting. Reminds me of something similar I did once that used a few Bael bits and a mishmash of Lupus Rex and Hashmal parts, plus bits from a few others. I'll have to dig it out eventually. Anyway, this is the EB-06v Graze Vogel . Kind of a slightly modified/standardized version of the Graze Cus...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Thanks. Grate work man, question what is the Asmodai weapons ? And does the EB-05f Falke Graze be used in space and ground combat in its original form or whit out the back boosters ? Asmodai's weapons are fairly light, because it's intended as a dogfighter - fast, agile, high speed and mobility - ra...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Saw it. Pretty good. I'm still in the process of deciding which color scheme to go with, but once I do I plan on actually building both the Falke and the Asmodai. Once I'm done with that, I plan to take some pics and post them in my Gunpla thread. Actually, at some point I may go back and take bette...

And then you have weird ones like the Zephyranthes Fb, where the "vents" aren't vents at all and it has thrusters in its torso instead

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Okay, so as per the edited post at the top of the page, I have been working on a revised version of a black-and-purple color scheme for my custom Gundam Asmodai. That is now complete I've been told it resembles Skywarp - certainly not what I was going for, but okay. I rather like how it looks somewh...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

Not in the original Origin manga.
Only the RX-78-01(which is destroyed at Side 7) and RX-78-02(which is the one Amuro ends up in) appears in The Origin itself. I dunno about side materials though.

Re: The Last Jedi

Prior to Rogue One , which I thought was excellent, I had never actually heard the name Rian Johnson before, or at least I did not recall it. However, I have seen two movies he wrote and directed: 2012's Looper and 2008's The Brothers Bloom . And I thought both - especially the latter - were excelle...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Pretty light armament - a pair of swords and a long-range rifle, plus one or two supplemental weapons integrated into the frame. It's designed mainly as a fast and agile mid-to-close-range fighter, and is also intended to be capable of unassisted atmospheric flight. By the way, I also did quick-and-...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

So I decided to revisit the Falke Graze a bit to tweak the Ground Type's equipment, and at the same time I experimented with other color schemes a bit as opposed to keeping the same colors as McDoofus's Schwalbe/Ritter. LINKS REMOVED I'm in the process of reworking the design a little bit, and will ...

which is especially ridiculous because we all know Snoke is a Char

think about it
I think my favorite theory on the subject is the one that posits that Snoke is that one random Storm Trooper who smacked his head into the door frame that one time in one of the old movies :P

Re: Pilot curriculum

I should comment that for all its flaws, AGE is probably one of the least egregious examples of Insta-skill in the franchise, and of the three Flit is perhaps the least excusable...and he's not only the Amuro, he is simultaneously that Verse's Amuro AND Tem Ray in that he was directly involved in de...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

One other thing you have to remember as well is that Gjallarhorn outlawed the use of the Dáinsleif following the end of the Calamity War. I would guess that until Idiok's forces used it against the Turbines, a Dáinsleif had not been fired in over three hundred years* (*Technically, there's the examp...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

"Something else entirely" would be it. The Gundam Tristan is not fielded by Neo-Zeon, based on what I've been able to learn about the novel. It, along with the Byarlant Isolde and an as-yet-unknown custom RGM-89 Jegan variant, are deployed by another faction, bankrolled by the Ronah family. Yes, tha...

Yeah, that's not surprising at all.
It's just like with Bright Noa - after Hirotaka Suzuoki passed away, they recast Bright for Unicorn.

Heh. In this case, from what I've found out, we are told precisely what the individual in question was thinking when she commissioned the creation of that particular mobile suit...or more to the point, who she was thinking of. Of course, that's just background info and not directly relevant to the e...

Not the Tristan AFAIK. But the novel all but outright states she personally commissioned the creation of that Zaku III specifically for Char's personal use - though he never did use it.

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Anime Thread Mk I

I wouldn't get your hopes up on that score just yet. From what I've been able to find out, Arlette doesn't even pilot at all, and Danton seems to only pilot ex-NZ mobile suits. Still, the possibility IS there, it's just a bit remote. That being said, having looked into...sources for a bit more infor...
