MN-18 Ikida by Norsehound MN-18 Ikida by Norsehound
The UEPC's primer Space Axel... designed specifically for low-orbit and microgravity conflict. The split arms allow it to carry the heavy lasers which come as standard armament. Though it approaches the moon's OU-8, that Axel's armor is still superior to that of the UEPC's axel.

'Been thinking about a novella for NaNo involving Axels and the ARX series together, so that's why there've been a few Axels of late. Almost like Cupps Island I guess, since I've been fleshing out that time period's respective machines.

the lower half is really sensual, looks so wrong and right at the same time. I love it!

All the zero-g axels are really weird. The LUNAR designs are only half weird because they aren't in complete zero-g...

Thanks Kai :)

I like this one a lot. It would also go well design-wise in a Space:1999 series continuation.

Great design!

Very cool silhouette to this guy. I dig the upper leg armor shapes and (what I'm guessing are) thruster ports.

Yeah those are thruster ports. Axels don't typically have on-board armaments, but there are exceptions.

Gotcha, I figured they were. Very cool, the use of simple shapes along with the white paint really lets those darker accents pop and accentuate the sculpt. It does, indeed, give it an almost NASA-esque space vibe.

In the Ikida's case I wanted to channel some of the vibes from the 2001 space pod as well. That's where the split arms come in... though I think I need to edit this image to give it wrists...
