After months of procrastinating/idea searching/blank mind, it’s done. Also, a bit busy hence been inactive.
And, Utsuho Reiuji-based custom kit is now, complete. Note, this is my first foray in doing painting using Gundam paint markers before I used the (current) spray paint.
You might have some times saw this in my previous postings. That was when I haven’t done doing the buster arm cannon.
This kit is a mix of HG Qan[T] (70%), HG (bootleg, can’t find the original kit at the time) Gadessa (15%) and the HG Strike Noir (15%).
As with Utsuho, or better known as Okuu, the right arm is attached with an over-sized cannon.
The “skirt” is from the rearrangement of the Qan[T]‘s sword bits. And yes, only her right leg as extra armour, following Okuu’s encased right leg design.
I chose the Strike Noir SPECIFICALLY for the backpack. Since Okuu is a heavy hitter of a hell raven, why not give MOAR weapons.
The main weapon has GOT to be the arm cannon, which has several modes to operate from.
With the piercing mode, the beam could effective penetrated a 20km thick asteroid but with a smaller cone of destruction.
In the second mode…
It could spray a 70° cone of scatter shots where each shot explodes into more bullets. But damage is weaker.
The very core of the cannon, it contains a miniature star in powering the cannon.
In this mode, the shot is wider yet gives a better damage rate, this, is the default mode.
Whenever it/she about to fire, the entire area can hear a warning klaxon blaring.
As with any Touhou-based characters, they are very agile, especially dodging bullets and nap-of-the-earth flying.
Yes the cannon can be used via the handle.
But only she can use this cannon as the recoil from it can be devastating for any other MS.
When going for melee, the blades from the wings are used, just like Strike Noir but the cannon becomes a remote-controlled entrapment weapon. Used for limiting the movements of enemy MS in CQC fights.
The Serpent is suffering from many ailments, so yeah.
So any unit that tries to chase her be shot down.
She has a slow acceleration rate but with a high cruising speed. Which means breaking can be an issue…
She just HAD to crossed paths with Gai…
Nothing good will come out from this…
The Battle of “Winged Backpack”
To be continue…
