Back story:

Unlike the Darkstar Project, which is a strike force designed to quickly defend and protect the mining operation on the planet Venus, the Verge frames were originally designed for planetary exploration. Their energy pistols were for cutting rock and minerals as samples. A wheeled loader frame was designed as a gatherer. And a scouting frame was to survey the area.

While based on a undiscovered planet for a mining expedition, civil war erupted on their home planet. Very quickly their exploration operation became of little importance. However, intregingly, their last reports were of mining a strange "crystallized energy".

One side fearing that these reports of this "crystallized energy" could be used against them, made a successful attempt to cut the "exploratory portal" (a small temporary wormhole used for one time back and forth travel).

The Verge would just be another casualty in this tragic war. Or so it would seem.....

The Verge is the second main company that I made.

Hope you enjoy :) please feel free to leave any suggestions, ideas, or constructive criticism

Great looking company. All of the frames fit the aesthetic you're going for. I particularly like your gun and lance designs. Very nice

Ditto. I'd like to see a picture of one without any Attachments if you have any.

Those are really nice looking, loving that white and I'm certainly stealing that shield!

Thank you all very much :D Please feel free to use, combine, or improve on any designs. In fact, on almost all of my models, the torso is inspired by Mittenninja ex (https://www.flickr.com/photos/mittennin ... 411198334/)

Didn't get around to saying it the first time, but these are straight up epic.
Well done.
It looks like I need to get some more of those T-pieces :D
Not sure what else I can say. Colors are awesome, head, torso and limb designs all look cool. and the weapons and attachments (Those jets!!) are super cool.
Great job!

Ah, I thought they looked kinda familiar. The base for MittenNinja's frame was this.

Wow, the time stamp on the frame that was the base for MittenNinja is almost 10 years old! That's awesome! I personally think that's a really good design.

@ Aardvark17 thank you very much for the compliments:), those T-joint pieces are pretty useful. I probably use them a little to much, should really get around to trying the mixel joints.

A funny thing about the jets, they were originally designed as shoulder cannons, but it wasn't looking quite right on that frame, and as I was messing around with different angles that might look better, I flipped them around and thought, "man, they look better as booster jets." So that's how that's actually how I came up with the jet design...reversed shoulder cannons :lol:
