Mini Exo Suits



Mini Exo Suits

Originally uploaded by legoloverman

Pete Reid creates some wonderful stuff. His Classic Space ships are rightly recognised as some of the best around. Recently, he’s been directing his talents towards microscale Classic Space. Here are the micro version of his cargo-lifting exo-suits. Now I need to source a whole pile of light grey minfig hands…

Utilising a lovely blend of bright and dark shades, this drone/tank/something by Fredoichi is small in scale but big in character. It could be Ghost In The Shell tachikoma scale, it could be the size of a Challenger tank, it could be even bigger. The design, however, works well within all of those scales.

Airborne



Micro junk

Today we look at some non-mech vehicles.

First off, aircraft. Particularly these neat little designs from Chris B. Scaled nicely for Mechaton, too.

When playing Mechaton in Japan with Simon, we came up with a little rules change when using airborne vehicles. They got an automatic green D8 for movement (for free) but could not hold stations or engage in hand to hand combat. I remember it working rather well. Perhaps we need to try it out again.

This Is Frasier Crane, I’m Listening

I can scarcely believe that we failed to blog this marvellous microscale mech crane from Kyle Vrieze. It was created as part of the Civilian Mecha Contest a couple of months ago and I was astonished by it back then. Who knows why it wasn’t blogged.

Not only is the crane itself a wonderful piece of design, but the presentation – complete with modular buildings – is exemplary. Stuff like this would look great on a Mechaton table, either as scenery or as part of a fighting force. Twin hand to to hand weapons to represent the massive hook being swung at enemies? Movement dice to represent the multipedal design? I’m certainly thinking of building one!
