Main Battle A_P_E
For the Iron Mecha challenge. Usually use natural light for these and being the shortest day of the year this week there has not been a lot. I also have a BL order with a few extra bits for this and a white one that must have been delayed by the ash cloud from Chile. So this will have to do!
ST-17h "Hellion" - Heavy Support
The ST-17h is derived from the last recorded data remnants the lost ST-17 "Reaver" prototype frame , the only two of which were stolen with their fate unknown. The Hellion is equipped with an 'Imperius' class Grand Railer autocannon, powered by a quad flux-core power pack. This enables the Hellion to fire at a quicker rate than normal and provides enough juice to lug such a heavy weapon around the battlefield. Additional Shots: Rear

ST-23 "Castor" - Solar Union Adaptation
Fighting against the Ijad taught the Solar Union one important lesson: desperation and determination can quickly lead to innovation. The design of the ST-02 "Scrambler" set the precedent for what would become dozens of quadruped frame variants, all of which the Ijad have succeeded with. The ST-23 represents the Solar Union's reverse engineering of the Ijad quadruped design, favoring more traditional weaponry to the SU such as the burst cannons shown here. The Castor otherwise functions…
We trade for 10,000 cans!
This is a slight update of a MOC I originally made for one of the Eurobricks contests in 2010. The model depicts the alien exo-suit from the movie District 9. In the movie, after some deft bargaining, the aliens trade the suit for 100 cans of cat food. "Stupid prawns!"
00009-Seneschal - Solar Union Peacekeeper Frame - Custom #1
The 00009 is the production model of the UMD-30 "Acheron" frame, re-purposed as a peacekeeping unit by the Solar Union to guard Transit Gates, Government Installations and other key public facilities. Unlike the Acheron, the Seneschal has had its armor bulked up, favoring durability over mobility, though it retains the Acheron's iconic head-mounted sensor array. Its armament includes a heavy plasma beam cannon for ranged attacks, and a vibro-glaive for melee encounters. LFOW's Note: This…
Stolen XM9 - "Gernsback" - Desert Mercenary Asada
After an unfortunate run in with some shady types on Fenris VI, the Mistarille Dawn's Ninth Ray lost one of its new XM9 "Gernsback" frames in a firefight outside the city of Tasinn with a mercenary hunting party. It seems the leader of this renegade group, "Single-Shot-Asada", has refitted it for use on the wastelands as her personal trophy. Wielding her well known and feared throughout the sector sniper rifle, the "PGM Ultima Ratio Hecate II", Asada's new Gernsback will prove a hard frame…
