So i have had this idea tinkering around in my head since way back in 06. This is part of the arvalis storyline and group of characters. During the great war that precedes the story, these were crafted by the Deus, and piloted by humans to equal the strength of the mighty Ryu-Baeroc. Their weapon is a blade on a rail mechanism that can slide the blade from a standard sword to underhand blade. This weapon allows the pilot to attack behind and in front in quick succession.
I had a lot of difficulty deciding on a color pattern, so i included several of my options. I ultimately went with an ancient terracotta armor color and a rusted bronze/copper look for the accoutrement. The pilot sees through a magic infused stained glass visor. I hope you guys dig this concept.
