STORY
"Much confusion surrounds the details of the franchise's background story, partly because the original Japanese source material has never been officially or skillfully translated.

A nuclear World War IV in 2807 kills most of Earth's population and renders the planet uninhabitable. Fifty-two years after the war, a research team from an interstellar union called the Galactic Federation is sent to Earth and discovers that the planet's natural environment has restored itself. The Federation decides to repopulate the planet and sends over colonists to the surface. Cities and towns are eventually reformed over the next 20 years, but this growth attracts the attention of criminals, military deserters, and other lawless elements who wanted to hide on Earth--away from the authorities. A few militias protect the colonists, but the new interlopers often defeat them.

Fearing civil unrest and the colonists forming their own government, the Federation gives the Strahl Democratic Republic (SDR) the right to govern the planet in the late 2870s. The SDR sends three police battalions and three Foreign Legion corps to Earth and uses heavy-handed tactics such as travel restrictions and hard labor camps to restore order, which creates resentment amongst the colonists. In response, the colonists create the Earth Independent Provisional Government and declare independence from the SDR. The SDR immediately establishes a puppet government and attempts to quell the uprising. The wealthy colonists hire mercenaries who are descendants of WWIV veterans to form the Independent Mercenary Army (IMA), which is bolstered by the presence of SDR Foreign Legion defectors. They attack the SDR forces and the battle to control Earth begins in 2882.

Over the next four years, the SDR and IMA fight each other at several locations worldwide while developing new technology along the way. The war turns up a notch in June 2883 when the IMA deploys a new weapon - the Armored Fighting Suit powered armor - to devastating effect. The SDR eventually builds their own AFS units."

Not sure yet! Was looking at the MAK stuff but I'm really undecided what to do.

No inspiration at the moment but hopefully something will come up soon

You know I was actually looking at some lovely 1/16 scale resin figures so might just be an option if I can find them at the right price

I aint done enough figure work but after doing a handful of pumpkin carvings I am tempted to have a go at some figure sculpting [smile]
Think I'll be going for evil overlord rather than sexy chick though [wink]

I wonder if anyone has entered a Pumpkin Carving into one of these GB's before ? [wink] [biggrin] [biggrin] [biggrin]
I'm pretty sure there have been many people who have entered a pumpkin but that's an entirely different thing altogether lol [biggrin]
Anyhow, I can feel a first about to happen when Halloween comes around [wink] [biggrin]

anyhow, you may vote for sexy chick and I may even attempt sexy chick but I think it will still turn out evil overlord haha [biggrin]
I wonder if I can carve a pumpkin into a Ma.K mech suit ?

I just love these creatively open GB's [smile]

Hi guys,
I'm back from my Scotland trip. What a beautiful country! I actually wanted to finish my F/A-18 build first before I start on this build but well... [biggrin]. Here are the pictures of the kit, starting with the very nice box art. I can really appreciate the effort these guys where putting into this kit!



What you get with this special edition are two kits (snowman and gladiator) and a funny figure. Overall a lot of nice looking plastic and some multimedia parts.
