Hi guys, I'm new here but thought I'd ask anyhow. Since I've almost finished my MG Gundam Unicorn k.a I've thought about what to do next. I've thought of maybe making a Team of maybe 4-5 gundams and repainted in a black special ops colour scheme. I've thought about what gundams to use. Preferably I'd want to stick to Master Grade one's. But haven't made my mind up which one's to use as part of my project at the moment. I'd prefer not to use over the top flashy one's that would drown out the whole feel to the it if you know what I mean i.e Strike freedom, wing gundam is definately a no no.

example:

All 1/100 Master Grade

Gundam MG Sniper (08 ms team) - Sniper
Gundam RX 178 MK II - Commanding unit
RX79 Ground Type - Artillery/Support unit
Gundam Ez8 - Recon/Comms unit?
??? - Multi purpose/Gunner?

I'd like to hear what kind of suggestions you guys would make of it, like what gundams you would choose and for what unit roles with reasons why you think it's best suited for those roles.

Hopefully if I get the light tent sorted this weekend I'll also upload some new photos for the Unicorn gundam I hopefully finish also by this weekend

So far here's the concept idea on a MK II with red logo followed by a black logo red outline and last but not least grey logo. Not sure which colour logo out of the 3 looks best to be honest. Any ideas? Also what finish would look better? Matt? Semi Gloss or Full Gloss?

Black Strike launcher as artillery support. Can do. I'll have to re-adjust the colours and see if it fits in. Although wouldn't it seem a bit too skinny being an artillery support?:p

Would you reckon making the leg slightly beefier make it look out of proportion? I dunno something about the strike makes it seem like it can't stand steady with thinner legs lol. Maybe it'll look fine in the end when I edit the colour scheme to black

Hmm...judging from the pics I looked at model kit website,the Strike are steady with those big launcher.The MG RX-78-5 Gundam G05 can also be a good support unit,those big gattling gun look amazing.:D

Almost forgot,the MG RX-78-4 Gundam G04 also can be good sniper/support.

I think so far that's the biggest problem I'm having. The sniper unit. Especially the guns itself. Most of the gundam sniper rifles just look puny or downright ugly.:( I have to say the G04's weapon just doesn't really suit the role of a sniper. It's a beam cannon. It more likely look the part if it looked more like a sniper rifle IMO :D Although the G04 def looks better than 05

RAVNEN 2009-03-11 06:15

Yep,the GM Sniper MG is perfect candidate for sniper unit.I like the G04 rifle,however it is kinda similar to S-Gundam smart rifle.:D Someone could just mod the GM Sniper with a Gundam head.

I most probably have to end up modding the head anyway to make some sort of sniper visor and while I'm at it mod the rifle :eyespin: I do quite like the cherudim but they don't have MG which is a shame and it's too much hassle to scratch build one.

Un1ver5e 2009-03-11 07:43

Hmm, you could try out Cherudim or Dynames for the sniper unit. The articulation on the Gundam 00 1/100 NGs are pretty good.

Sir Dearka 2009-03-11 07:50

Just ordered the Guncannon in both MG and BB version. It's strange I did not do it before, seeing how Kai Shigen and his machine are fulfilling the respectable role of well-developed support character plus powerful unit. Long range attack-type pilot being one of the few people in the cast who survived till the end of the series? Kinda reminds me of Wedge which also happen to be my favorite Star Wars character. And Dearka, of course ;)

Also, thinking of getting the EF Action Base.

I have a question... anybody having an UC Zaku ver. 2? Thinking about the Trinity version. Is it worth the price?

JayCee 2009-03-11 08:00

Well here's a test pic of what cherudim in a black scheme would look like although I'd get rid of most of the white and have some grey parts here and there in the final stage to match the MK II's all black look

Though if I was to work on it I'll need to chuck his rifle away. Cos it looks puny. Rather have Dynames sniper rifle and mod it instead

Robot Tamashi 0 Gundam actual color

JayCee 2009-03-11 08:20

OMG...that looks...hideous. No decal, no panel lining, nothing. Too clean. Almost lego looking with the plain colour look. Much prefer GFF series when it comes to pre built gundams :D But nice find anyway

Sir Dearka 2009-03-11 08:29

To me, it looks great, actually. The suit reminiscent of the original and skillfully adapted to the 00 universe :] If it performs well, I might just buy the 1/144 version of it.

JayCee 2009-03-11 08:43

Each to their own. Tho I think the 2 forks besides the head just looks silly. Casval's version of RX-78 is much better :D
