Red Core Nova Battlesuit

Post by bann154 » Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:51 pm

Hello everyone thanks for stopping by i am here to present my first vehicle for the Red Core Mercenary faction i have been working on that has recently contracted by the Atherta Federation as meat shields and shock troops. The Nova Battlesuit was developed after the first battle with the United Kingdom (Valiant) and its heavy tanks. These tanks posed a great threat and so the Federation contacted Red Core and they built something that could pop a tank and decimate infantry all the same and thus the Nova Battlesuit was born! Equipped with a jet pack it has far more mobility than most vehicles of its size it is armed with 2 5" rail cannons on the right arm and a 4" burst cannon on the left arm it also mounts 4 size 3 missiles per shoulder as well as advanced shields making it a far tougher target to take down.
(Sorry for the bad pictures they were rushed with my iPod camera and i will replace them with better pictures at a later time...maybe)

I like it. It looks like the lovechild of a Crisis Suit and a Dreadnought. How strong are those legs though?

Thanks! Yeah it kinda does docent it? The legs are actually quite stable no problems at all.

This looks promising.

If you mean Concave Dolphin could benefit from being run over by a tank, I think they already have.

I don't like the arm-shoulder joint too much and the legs are a bit on the skinny side but it's still really cool.

I might build stronger legs on that one, although I kinda like the current ones, just from the looks of it. Great suit, man!

Eh, it's not that bad.
Shoulders just need some flare and a second plate hinge on the bottom to reinforce them, the legs just need some slope bits and possibly swapping the clip hinges with clickly ones.

Does it have the same weaknesses as its predecessor?
If you know what I mean.

...

Thin legs can work, when I read mech/dreadnought threads people are often given advice to make everything more proportional (normally "make the legs bigger!"). That's fine on some mechs, but sometimes it's nice to have a quirky build with some interesting proportions. Go with whatever you can make work.
