it's power armor time by biometal79 it's power armor time by biometal79
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.

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.

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

Of course, if they're sending these guys in, the fertilizer has really hit the ventilator, and they're more opening fire than talking anyhow.
