Etha Cah - Hidden Guard

Postby KungFujiApple » Sat Sep 07, 2019 4:33 am

Unit Name: Etha Cah - Hidden Guard
Planet Name: None (Unit found throughout Ijad space)
Background: Stealthy Defenders (see below)
Main Environment: Mainly Forest / Jungle



This Unit was mainly tablescrap. Kinda went for a buggy, orchid mantis look. I wanted to try and make something look kinda dainty, yet deadly, with a little bit of cute.

Backstory:
Ambush is their main strategy. Often stationed where it appears an area is lightly guarded, waiting for any unsuspecting intruder. Mainly deployed in dense forest or jungle, however capable of being effective in virtually any environment. Equipped with light bending technology they strike hard and fast. Being precise and deadly, often a battle is over before it has really begun.

Close range: w/ Scything Talons

Artillery

This is one of several units that I've been meaning to post here, but have not got around to it. I hope you enjoy and as always appreciate any C and C :)

How about a LOT of Cute? :lol:
These are adorable! It's a real shame that I don't have those colors or else I would totally make my own company of these. Although they do remind me of the CRAI from your older Orange Squadron post. I think it's because of the legs. The Artillery one especially should get high praise.

Nailing the insectoid look with those, really nice!

lol, thanks ^^. Yeah these builds are a variation of the CRAI design, especially the artillery version. I've been meaning to make a backstory of how the CRAI design specs were secretly sold to the Ijad, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Ahh time, never enough. :lol:

Thanks :). Because of color I initially went for the orchid mantis look, but because of pieces, ended up with a more of a leaf hopper look :lol:

I love both this design and your new avatar. The frame is so simple and I think it would be a good budget build for new players. With only one or two standard polybags, I could probably make one, since it uses a lot of common pieces found in polybags.
As of August 30, 2019, I have 13 frames photographed that I haven't put here yet. They, as well as all my photographs, can be found at https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1f1dlHOhWX4s6nfTW1FWh4Uqhoc6usAIG

lol, thanks for the compliments on both these designs and the new avatar ^^. I definitely went for a simple, parts effective design, especially since these were made from mostly what I had available at the time.
