[BB19] USA Augmented Soldier Frame

Post by aoffan23 » Sun Mar 31, 2019 10:53 pm

Here's an entry into the 2019 Blarney Build in the Brik by Brik category. It's the fourth in a series of iterations on what has turned out to be a very versatile frame.

Image
Introducing the new armoured, augmented, and impressively muscular addition to the USA's ranks. Not only can these soldiers resist most small arms fire, they can also carry higher calibre weapons with more mobility than both standard infantry and larger vehicles.

Image
While the soldiers selected for this role are incredibly strong in their own right, this powered armour provides mechanical augmentation to further enhance their physical abilities.

Image
Two weapons have been developed specifically for use by these soldiers: the M1600 assault rifle, and the M6000 machine gun (huge thanks to ninja_bait for letting me almost completely rip off the rifle design).

These soldiers tower over their unaugmented brothers.

Image
While not an exact equivalent, augmented soldiers provide a pretty close counterpoint to the 45th Union's Centurions. What these units lack in sheer size and stronger metal structure, they make up for in cost efficiency and versatility. They also tested far better with the citizens of the USA than robots did.

Image
They also make for great pictures like this, making them a recruitment officer's dream come true.

Sorry that the pictures aren't fantastic. Less-than-ideal lighting combined with black-on-black makes these hard to photograph well.

This is amazing! Can I request the building instructions for the USA frame + the 45th union mech?

I love the suit, but especially the flag and guns!

I think that the light bley bits would look better in dark bley, sand green, or black.

Style: 8 - Not a fan of the yellow arms. Are they flesh? are the mechanical? It detracts from an otherwise badass build imo

Substance: 9 - Good stuff!

Photography: 9.5- I like the other pics to show off the American Flair

Boast: 50 - One for each state in this glorious Nation of MURICA!

The light grey bits were intended to be exposed armour plates, as this is less of a full armour suit and more of a super soldier/armour suit hybrid, though I guess that didn't really come across very well. I'll look at some possible alternatives, but I don't have the brackets in dark grey and I don't think they exist in sand green yet, so this will stay for now. I did try a version in all black when building this (possibly a space-faring version?):

They're intended to be flesh, just amped up. I might change the legs, but I think the arms will stay as is to make them fit in with the rank-and-file troops a little more.
