Finally finished it! This is the revision to the old Muramasa Battle Frame, turinuz.deviantart.com/art/Mur…, turinuz.deviantart.com/art/Red… .

The design has pretty much been changed completely. While the Speis and Hildebrandt have revised parts that can trace back to their original units, I went a different direction with this Revision and did pretty much everything from scratch, sans a part of the face. So it's like a completely new unit. The demon emblem that was once located on its chest has become the chest. To go with that more demonic motif, I also gave it a demonic tale with a dark purple color scheme. It's armor also looks more samurai-ish now. I removed two swords from one hip as they were getting in the way of the picture, so just be aware the unit carries four by default.

This is a very lovely design, Shori. I might put more detail on its knees and scabbards, though. Can I ask how this unit is controlled? I'm interested in the pilot controls and how it translates to the mech's ability for swordplay.

Has the same control scheme as all the other Brave units:

A typical cockpit layout, however the cockpit does feature a man-machine interface for greater control. Through the man-machine interface, thought is translated into action, while controls such as the control sticks and pedals help fine-tune these movements and actions. It's kind of like the Argevollen in terms of how it's controlled, though simpler in execution. Creates a steep learning curve for pilots, as controlling a machine through thought is plenty difficult.
