Everything here is great, you make use of a lot of otherwise not very useful pieces in these builds. What you did with the Rebel Jetpack is genius, makes it look a lot better. Am I the only one who doesn't really like how wide the rebel jetpacks are at the bottom?

Alright let me say all of this is great work and I'm really happy to see you producing more stuff! I really like how the walking tank turned out! Reminds me of the time I built a walking tank. I think light grey is a very solid color for anything with a dieselpunk edge and I particularly enjoy the small ammo boxes on it! I like the drop ship though i don't believe the front works. I would suggest do something bonkers like a ww2 fighter cockpit on it or add a HIND style cockpit on it! And finally love the drone particularly the collar wich turned out great alogside the gun on it

Made some changes to the Centurion, though I'm not sure if I'll keep it this way.

Image
The main change is the legs. I like the added posability and the new feet, but I can't decide if I like the taller silhouette or the stockier, more minifig-like build of the first version. Any input is appreciated.

Image
The back is also smoother, which is a change I'm definitely keeping.

I'm also not sure about the new gun. I really like the old one, but I feel like I need some element of Russian aesthetic to reflect the flavour of the 45th Union. So I wanted something styled like an AK. These are my three current options, with the middle one being a halfway point between the other two. Again, input is appreciated.

I like the fat stubby gun.

The armor looks like Full Metal Alchemist when the helm is off. Very close anyway.

Very nice mech! The guns turned out quite well I might just steal the first one.

If you're going with that rusky-feel that hardsuit will be begging for a proper-sized RPG  :warhead:

Thanks for the input guys, but I think I like the third one (with the scope) just a bit better. It's only slightly shorter, but it's enough to make it feel like a one-handed weapon rather than a two-handed one. Normally I'd be fine with a two-handed gun, but the centurion's arms don't actually have enough range of motion to hold a rifle with both hands, so I'd rather just have a gun it can fire with one hand.

The only thing I don't like is the scope, because while it looks cool, it just doesn't make sense for this guy. I could give a lame excuse like "it's got sensors to help it aim" but that's dumb because why would you build an AI-controlled soldier that can't aim with its own built in sensors? Unfortunately I can't think of anything that would look good. I'm essentially I'm trying to mimic the shaping of a AKS-74U, but nothing really works for the top at this scale (I tried a black ingot piece, didn't quite work). The middle version would be great if the top bar was a hair lower to the body, but it just sits too high for my taste.

So for the moment I'm sticking with the third variant, even though it doesn't make much functional sense and it bothers me.

Though looking back at RoC's original Iron Maiden mech I'm thinking about reverting to the original design since it's a miniature version of that gun.

TL;DR I'm still as indecisive as ever.
