On this historic night of a sweeping Obama win I post new a new FOIL beastie, albeit a variant
With the sense the country is ready to head in the right direction now (hopefully) I continue posting material for this ambitious project and, as always, I'm heartened and gratified by your enthusiasm and support. My thanks
Here's to new opportunities and the path forward looking a little brighter.
Here we have an alt version of the Jiendel Gavil Strumblatt in a cammo pattern of grays, pattern breaker merging into spotty on top. Combat Frame 2 (CF-2) of the same manufacturing line as the previous posted Strumblatt... CF-2 [link]
, DOH! I'll have to change the TAC Numbers, totally forgot to change them on this one. This machine has an extended sensor nosecone type head that looks almost like an aggressive blade pushing forward. This sensor head type comes off as a more visually aggressive silhouette and the machine looks more intimidating because of this.
The tac marking are more tribal on this one and ultimately more the common style we'll be seeing on these machines. The girl nose art certainly the human component of the FOIL's identity as it was added by the human pilot.
The Strumblatt FOILs are light CAV machines and more of a dueling machine in intent and design. Again, though the head is a fixed design the machine's vision is 360 in nature so head movement isn't required but even in fixed head designs parts still are movable and the reality this is a living weapon still comes across very effectively.
Certainly done overall but I may noodle with it more as weathering them is a blast. More to come!
