First full paint Theos combat FOIL for 2013... for Febuary we get the Oshen-Dies Mana Vishu in sexy red with go faster stripes livery.
The Mana Vishu is another 5th gen high performance combat FOIL. The, now familiar, visual cues are all to be seen here; covered limbs with customization ports, aggressively sleek aeroframe body with an emphasis on speed and visually implied forward momentum (some fractal futurist/cubist surfaces), an enigmatic sensor array (the device with the forward antennae behind the head cowl), and performance stats tailored toward a mysterious new looming threat. This is another example of renowned taedus and FOIL manufacturer Oshen teaming up with it's former main competitor (in terms of sheer quality though still unmatched by Oshen) in order to meet this looming perceived threat with the best technology Polemos has to offer in order to confront it. Oshen was a proactive force in developing the 5th generation evolution of FOILs. Many suspected Oshen had inside information regarding the threat that was coming and, thus, took bold steps to prepare. Another example of the Oshen-Dies partnership is the RES CM Nal-Farbute FOIL seen here: [link]
I had fun working on this one, been wanting to do another red one for some time and this seemed perfect for it.

It looks like a humanoid version of the ULTIMATE type of fuselage loadout from SolaToRobo from beating the game several times and then paying 60,000 rings for the ultimate fuselage.
controls (IMPORTANT for the ultimate type) :
If you Hold A and release with the ultimate mech you can grab things with greater reach. If you hold A and allow yourself to get hit damage is MAJORLY reduced by a blocking with the arms technique to protect the pilot and stand your ground, though shielding causes immobility and you have to release the button to be freed from immobility.
If you press B ten immediately press it again you do a rocket dash, which is a dash that can be controlled by the D pad. hold B to get a more advanced version, release to send a wave of power surges at your enemies and actually get a reaction out of them, press B and while in mid air to hover, good for avoiding bosses lasers and other jump-timed hazards.
press Y to dismount (obviously), press A and while holding an enemy in its "combo ring" press A and a series of
button mashes on the D-pad, whatever direction you button mash the D-pad in affects the move.
wen A is rapidly pressed while the enemy is in mid air; this causes more damage.
Aye, I wanted to do one that was all prettied up, sans all the dirt, grime, rust, and crud I usually tend to cake on these things XD Thanks!
Thanks for posting!
It's been a crazy previous couple of years that kept my posting to a crawl. I hope to make up for that this year so I plan to be posting a lot more. I hope to see you posting more of your fab work as well man and catch you here on DA time to time
