Ok, I'm kinda stuck. So in the meantime, I've updated Soldares Infini. As you can see, it shares a lot of details with Pelinal, though all the torso detail makes it look much better. But again Iíve ground down to a halt here as well so I would like to ask everyoneís advice on how to improve both models. Any mecha fans in the house? And I think I should do some modelling for Revan, I had promised him.
But you canít give advice if you donít know what youíre looking at, right? So itís time for the good old exposition.
The Soldares Infini is a robot that was built by an eccentric professor to protect earth from an Alien attack. (Sounds like 60s mecha anime? I hope so, including all the exaggerated over the topness.) The plan had two phases.
1: Instigate an arms race. To do this, the Soldares would perform activities most would describe as terrorism. Blowing up harbours, attacking military bases, that sort of stuff.
2: If phase 1 does not meet the desired results on time, take care of the aliens by itself.
In order to accommodate both phases, the Soldares Infini has two Ďformsí which are really just two different power sources.
Form 1: This is the weakest form, relying on good old Fusion power to supply its needs. In this form, the Soldares only has a weak and easily penetrated field, armour roughly equal to that of a tank and a single head laser with just enough power to burn through the hulls of a warship. Still, it can fly and is far superior to jets, tanks, other robots, if properly used.
Form 2: Form 2 is just a tad more powerfull *cough* and relies on some quasi-unscientific will-force to power everything.
In this form, the Soldares Infini gains a field with ten times the output of the old one, two more lasers capable of scything the moon in half, the ability to split the moonscything lasers into countless independently tracking beams, two really big guns on the chest, the ability to phase out for half a second, teleportation, and finally the ability to eject Ďsolidí immat (the will thingy I mentioned.) The immat is either used to block stuff that got through the field, or focussed around the fists for punching.
So to give a small impression about the difference in powerscale, form 1ís full firepower is about equal to a nuke if properly used and allowed to stay around for a while. Form 2 can take out stellar bodies with its lesser
weapons and punch a warship going at near lightspeed without suffering any damage. The warship in this case, would be turned into a cloud of space dust going at near lightspeed. MUHAHAHAH!!!!
(There aren't enough evil smilies to describe my maniacal laughter.)
So, any advice on what I should add/remove/modify?
