Well, the Overtime Monster provided a little bit of relief (and I popped a couple of Monster Energy drinks), and so I made a little time to sculpt today.
As I've stated in previous updates, the Dictator CAV is Reaper's
baby. I'm just doing a little exercise in exploring a couple concepts,
and toying with a hypothetical update to the old girl.
On with the chemically-induced creativity...
the last update. The "death blossom" look wasn't going to work, since the open hatches were going to collide with the upper legs if the mech had to run or kneel. I moved the two lower launchers outboard, onto the shoulders.
The first test models of CAV were kit-bashed helicopter gunship models. This harkens back to those early roots. Neat.
Yes, I know, she's starting to grow bigger than her predecessor. If things start to spiral out of control in the size department, relief is only a "scale" command away.
Stay tuned for more.
