I spent some time during a boring lecture last week coming up with ideas for new Frankens, and this was my favorite ideas from the bunch.

Havoc Dagger: a mass-produced Chaos Gundam. It retains the Chaos' unique atmosphere-capable Gunpods but gets rid of the transformation. Early units were colored like the Exass used by Phantom Pain ace Neo Lornoakke (^_^;) while the later units were coloring similar to the Moebius Zero.

Early Colors: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/ ... dagger.jpg

Standard Colors: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/ ... gger-1.gif

Hmm...i have a question about the colors...why would the EA want to color then Havoc daggers as the personal colors of a defector? Aside from that, it is a very good design, better than my Chaos Dagger.

Well, both the Exass and Moebius Zero were used by other OMNI pilots, so neither scheme is technically Mwu's. :\

...any suggestions? I'm running out of ideas.

Draco, do you take requests? I have never seen you EVER imply that you do. And are you asking for requests? please clarify, so we don't get the 'wrath-of-the-mods" (heh, I replaced gods with mods).

Right now I'm just asking for color suggestions.

I've taken requests in the past, normally only for close friends, but if I like your idea enough I'll do it. If you want me to look at your idea, PM it to me and we'll see what happens.

Here are a couple MS I recently completed.

Grapply: mass-produced close-combat MS armed with claws and rapid-fire beam guns mounted on extendable arms.

Harpy: a limited-production aerial MS. It is mostly reliant on handheld weapons, but its shoulder mount Breaker Fields that allow the Harpy to perform powerful ramming attacks. This design was inspired by Kavik Ryx's request for Lunamaria Hawke-colors Deathscythe HELL Custom.

As soon as I read "shoulder mount Breaker Fields" I thought "I bet this thing has Guarlion parts." I was right! I like the look of it, too. The non-standard pose is nice, and the parts work well together. It's also one of the few mecha I've seen which has an obviously feminine appearance without having a pair of metal breasts welded onto its chest. Good job!
Don't call it a comeback...

I'm legally obligated to make mechs every month or I get my crown taken away. :D

I customized Spartan Gundams for each member of the Blue Team from "Red vs. Blue" including Season 5 newbie, Sister.

EDIT: Forgot the link! My bad! :X

After seeing all the alternate endings on YouTube, I may make one for non-canon Blue, Jacobs.

Okay, I'm an idiot for forgetting the link to the Blues.

Good thing I had this other really cool thing to post. I found some Super Robot Wars lineart and decided that since I now had Wildraubtier (my favorite mech from SRW) I would paint it in my colors. If I can figure out what parts go where on the fighter mode, I may paint that too.

:shock: Man, the Wildrauptier looks like a totally different mech in those colors!

If it had had a spiffy paint job like that in OG1, I might not have stuck Russel in it and turned it into a support unit.

Then again, I might've still done it. :lol:

EDIT: And, out of my almost complete lack of knowledge of Halo, I must ask a question... Why is only one of the Blues... actually blue? Well, two if you count the light blue, but AFAIK the default blue in Halo is the dark blue.

The colors reflect the characters from the Machanima series "Red vs. Blue."

Tex (the black one) is a Freelancer and is not officially a member of Blue Team.

Tucker (the teal one) is teal, which is like green, which is blue and yellow mixed together, so I guess that's why he's got teal armor on Blue Team.

Sister (the yellow one) is colorblind. I'm not sure if that totally explains why her armor isn't either blue or a shade of blue in-universe, but I'm sure the out-of-universe explanation is so that the Red Team would think she had come to join their squad.

Yo Draco, do you have a personal paint scheme? I know some others do, myself included.

Yeeeeeeeep. That scheme on the Wildraubtier there is what I consider to be my personal colors.

Here's a list of every canon mech that I've painted in those colors (aside from the Wildraubtier since it's already up there).

Alpha Azieru: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/ ... azieru.jpg

Dreadnought Gundam (before I got decent Dreadnought lineart): http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/ ... naught.gif

Stargazer: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/ ... rgazer.jpg

Hyperion Gundam (sorta): http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/ ... llsize.jpg

And then I have a GuAIZ colored similarly on my DeviantArt gallery. I've also done various Frankens in those colors. :shock:

As much as I like UC more than SEED, you'd think I'd've colored more UC mechs in my colors.

Does your color-theme have a name of its own? Like something along the lines of "Draco-teal"? :P

More importantly, does your paint scheme have stat-enhancing effects? It makes anything it's applied to three times more like a Gelgoog or something?

My colors, tentatively titled the Darkcloud colors, make me 3 times better at getting behind cover and twice as hard to see at night unless there's a source of dramatic lighting nearby. :P

I wish I'd done this latest work weeks ago for Halloween.

Some of my creepiest work yet. :lol:

Then I modified my Hunter mech to be UNSC Style.

Your Hunter mech reminds me of something out of Halo...
