Powered Exoskeleton Armor
E-115-powered, armored exo-skeletal suits are the pinnacle of infantry armor technology. While they are not much bulkier than Heavy Combat Armor, built-in synthetic muscle actuators greatly enhance the user’s strength, and advanced alloys and composite materials are used for maximum protection. Unlike conventional armor suits, exo-skeletal armor has to be custom-made for each user’s physique, increasing the already astronomic cost-per-unit even further. Exoskeleton users must have a Neural Interface Port Implant, and require proper training to use the suit at its full potential.

Illustrator, Photoshop, Wacom tablet.
Can't say how many hours.
Original sketches as a commission by [link]

This is meant as a showcase for the new illustration style for my RPG project. The full color artwork takes way longer to create than the old pencils, and I obviously need some help from real artists, but I think it might be just worth the extra effort. Coming up next: craploads of colored guns.

It could be Power Armor from Fallout as well.

I really like the realism, for example the maThat is great thinking.gazines are carried on the outside, for speedy reload.

Combine this with a 7.62 mm rifle or a .50 cal. assault rifle and you got a perfect combination to fight anyone. Add later on a laser rifle and pistol, wow. This must be based on X-COM: Enemy Unknown/UFO Defense. Can't wait for your version of X-COM: Terror From The Deep and/or X-COM Apocalypse. BTtW if you happen to know any RPG that it is based on them, I played RIFTS, SHADOWRUN and I am a gamemaster for ROBOTECH, Please let me know. Would love to play and have rules so others could play.

Know how the human soldiers in movies always freak out when they see the aliens. With this on, I bet the aliens would be the ones freaking out ; )

THATS BADASS

i can imagine a soldier with a suit like this using some sort of heavy caliber slug cannon, with like a slowish rate of fire

almost a bit like the walker cannons in avatar
