____________________________________________________________________________ Lore: The ‘slaved suit’ has been a primary cornerstone in the industrial, shipyard, and construction/ hazmat fields for centuries. These armored ‘exoskeletons’ exist in numerous variations and since their inception military forces have employed them for tasks ranging from menial labor and loading/unloading cargo to frontline combat duty. The suits work by mimicking a human body’s basic range of motion, the operator fits into a neural glove and utilizes basic controls while the machine replicates motion and amplifies strength and performance. The Phalanx is a mass produced, easily maintained and operated open cockpit model produced by Armax Exosystems. The SCE-11A is the most commonly encountered infantry operated exoskeleton in the Colonial Military. It is commonly equipped with a Sierra 20mm magazine fed anti-materiel carbine, these massive weapons are usually mounted on vehicles or on stationary platforms, but can easily be operated by infantry utilizing the Phalanx system.
For defensive capabilities the Phalanx is heavily armored with dense Dovani composite material; this light ceramic based armor is capable of deflecting small to large caliber rounds and energy based weapons. The left arm is also equipped with a CoreTech stabilized energy barrier that when activated deploys a circular field of ionized matter that binds together within a projected electrical field and can fully shield the operator (and anyone behind the field) from incoming physical or energy projectiles. However this shield utilizes a massive amount of energy, the 11A is equipped with a dedicated and emergency generator that can power the shield intermittently for up to 26 minutes, and up to 7 minutes constant. The shields ability to remain active is also directly impacted by the volume and consistency of incoming fire, the system burns through energy reserves much faster when struggling to maintain a constant field while deflecting or absorbing munitions. The Armax Exosystems combat exoskeletons are used by numerous infantry battalions for nearly limitless specialized roles, and can be found in almost every colonial occupied world for offensive, defensive, and support roles.
Great suit and nice Photos. It is nice to see something other then top front side etc... which I am guilty of.
I like it

As always, your presentation is exemplary. Super clear, super close, perfectly lit, and again, you treat with your characteristically tasteful use of photo-shop. Wouldn't change a thing! Well built as well. My only gripe, is that this suit (like so many others) lacks suitable protection for the operators head. All that armor, all that fire power, all that tec and cost, but in the end, one opponent with a cool head and a Molotov cocktail, or a grenade, or a shot gun, or a hand gun could blind/injure/kill the operator. No rocket launcher needed. No land mine, or flame thrower, or plasma thingy needed. The guys head is sticking right out there. The suit might be undamaged, but it would be out of the fight! A soldiers head is one of his most important body parts...put some armor over his nugget! That thing is already so big, that a little extra height and weight won’t hurt the looks. Attack!
I think what Colin J is trying to say is maybe a set of pics with a straight on shot of the front, L side, R side and rear with nothing else but a neutral background so we can take in all the fine details of the suit itself. Even without them your design and photography skills are still to be admired.
looks great! your partusage is cool! and one question - have you ever joined a photoclass ? Cause your pics are awesome! they always look a little bit like they where tooked by a minifig (from the scale and angles you do...)
