Fight Gear Reyrand Design 01 by TurinuZ Fight Gear Reyrand Design 01 by TurinuZ
And here's the sheet adjusted for the Reyrand. Originally this unit was part of a setting I've long since forgotten; however, it keeps the ability it has had since the very beginning. That is, the ability to summon hundreds of swords to its side from a collection of them it's made from taking down enemies.

This swords make it a powerhouse in close range; paired with its speed, it can have a sword prepared for any type of construct and take it down with deadly precision. Its nickname in Russia is the "Krov Lotos" or Blood Lotus, due to the graceful but merciless combat style of its current pilot.

I had to make a new account because i lost access to my old somehow, but if i remember correctly, didn't you specify that the armor of this unit was of a honey-combed design correct? it, along with Michael Crighton's the lost world, inspired the idea for honeycombed armor in something that I'm writing.

Yeah. Though it isn't visible from afar, the Reyrand's armor plating is pieced together in a honeycomb pattern. This makes it easier to repair damage to the armor by just removing sections, instead of whole parts.

The idea was that the Reyrand could literally repair itself in battle by phasing out damaged armor pieces for new ones via its satellite in orbit; though this wouldn't replace any damaged internal components.

Thats very clever indeed, it could give the suit near infinite fighting potential, especially if you added in a swappable cockpit-block so the pilot's could be easily rotated. I'm using the honey-comb aspect in terms of weight reduction without sacrificing armor integrity.

Random question for you. I just acquired the program you use, SketchUp, but have no idea how to use it at all. I wanted to get into designing mecha so i could render the ones for the book I'm writing. could you give me an pointers/tips to help me along my way?

I would've recommended the mecha modeling tutorial from Chiz Cyber Lair, but it seems Google has pinned it as a website with malicious content on it. There might be several Sketchup modeling tutorials here on DeviantArt you could use, though. There might even be some in the 3D Warehouse as well.

For rendering, I definitely suggest VRay for Google Sketchup; very useful, very power. You can find VRay on the website for Sketchup where it lists all the plugins. There's also a whole bunch of plugins you can find there and download that'll make life much easier when making mecha.

Okay, I'll definitely look into those, are there like templates i can get of basic mecha that can be modified to suit my needs? And sorry to ask, but are you available for commission? Your Gundam frankens are absolutely superb

I'd say check the 3D warehouse for any design templates as well. There's a whole bunch of stuff you can find on there.

As for commissions for frankens, I no longer franken; sorry. D:

Okay, sounds good. And i wasn't saying for a franken, but for a completely original mech all together. I'm currently writing a book, and am contemplating posting it here, just a little sketched still, and want a few renders of the main mech in the book.

Google-err, Trimble Sketchup. The Design Sheet itself was made in Photoshop.
