I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving and, those who have braved the Black Friday insanity got some good swag.

And with that I drop some Theos swag in the form of a fully tricked out combat gear taedus. I've been wanting to do some sendai in full combat gear for awhile now so here's the first of several examples to come.

This guy's a Dies model taedus and is sporting a full combat armor suit which goes over his already armored body. The chest and mid torso area is armored sections, along with the shoulder pieces and shin/calf armor. The rest of the clothing is part of the armor components. Various packs can be worn depending on tactical needs and this guy appears to be pretty covered.

The taedus carries two shettiers, a Jeindel combat auto (the handgun) and a Dies compact full auto (the sub machine gun on the back pack). The colors are very much an Indus palette as the sodium vapor hues of amber and green are a pretty dominant color across much of the artificially lit architecture. So you'll see a lot of combat gear in these kind of hues, also blacks and grays as well. His khaki's have an abstract pattern breaker camo pattern, which again, is intended more for the urban sprawl. Various patterns are used.

It's pretty obvious he's seen some action as his gear is scuffed up with dirt, grime, and scratches. You don't want to cross this guy or he'll kick your ass and take your lunch money.

There are more to come.

Happy Holidays!

Is there a compilation of info surrounding this universe? I really like the over-all settings and the art style in a lot of the artwork associated with this universe. I would love to have some pages dedicated to the conceptualization of specific aspects and world themes. I dunno, it is kind of hard for me to articulate what I am asking about.
for example, if one does any research on the Gundam franchise, you can get a whole lot of detailed info on many aspects of the world and development.

I am most interested in the human and synthetic human races, as they relate to one another. It is something I struggle with in my own sci-fi writing, as I would like to create something that feels genuine and multidimensional, rather than flat and weak.
I like the technology that goes into synthetic humans/humanoids, as far as how it related to society.

I dunno, i'm not very articulate today...

anyway, great work!

There isn't, quite, that kind of thing... yet (though I planned to do something like this eventually). At the moment what we do have is a significant amount of info in every posting here in the DA gallery and more information to be found on our blog: [link]

There is a lot of nuggets of info on how the sendai and humans relate in the various sendai related posts here:

[link] All proletarian sendai posts, free sendai, etc. I have a feeling you already saw these but you get the idea.

So, yeah, in time I plan to, more or less, do just what you're asking for, a compiled information base or some type of wiki, it's just a matter of time :) Glad you're enjoying the material.

Not a problem. You're more than welcome to take a crack at it. You've covered the bases, just make sure you credit the origin back here as a copyrighted work by Studio Vulne Pro for the Theos KE Polemos project. Always happy and honored to see people doing fan works, homages, or simply finding inspiration in the work we're doing.

My thanks! I look forward to what you come up with.

Why are your designs so impossibly epic? D:

All those extra details, like the scratches and scrapes just make this even more incredible

Thank you kindly, I appreciate it! Those extra details often can take things that step further so it's worth it.
