Yeah, it's awesome alright. When I first looked through it I tried to imagined what would have been going on here. I like to think they just heard the Assyrians have an AC inbound instead of those whatever they are hiding in the city. Thanks Hobo.

Yeah, thats pretty cool. The use of the castle battlements on the hover-tanky things was a npu.  And it utilizes snot on the buildings well, which probably helped save on parts by a shitload.

I remember this... the APCs were the main inspiration for my Boar APC.  

As I recall the main thing not shown in this picture was all of the weird-looking cars that various builders had put together for the display.

If you look at the flicker links I have included above, they have shots of civilian vehicles, the monorail, and some other stuff as well.

Looks more to me like they've heard Fredde's SHIP is inbound with a sleigh full of toys... What, that robot doesn't remind you of his stuff?

My favourite NPU in this piece is definitely the studios "clapper" piece on the signs.

So... what is npu? I assume 'not proper usage', but can someone help me out with the exact definition?

Thanks.
