Power Armor: Honorable Mentions.

Well, I had lots of good ideas from the "Cry For Help" post. Sadly, there were a lot that, for one reason or other, could not make the cut. I did end up with a list of 25 finalists, but here were the ones that were suggested, and the reason why it's not going in.

From Books: Power armors from Lensman, Forever War, Armor, Legacy of the Aldenata, and Starship Troopers. Because: I have not read these books, and would be unqualified to rank them.

From Movies: Loader from Aliens, Landmates from Appleseed. Why: The loader is not an armor, more of a mecha, and I never saw Appleseed, see above book explaination.

From Comics: Ironman. Yeah. I already covered this in the earlier post. Not using Ironman.

Video Games: Ovo packs, Nanosuit, Tribes and the HEV from Halflife. I have only played Halflife, and even that was for like 10 minutes. Not qualified.

That about sums it up, I should start posting about the finalists in the next few days.

You should read Starship Troopers and Forever War.

Definitely read Starship Troopers, it's typically considered the definitive work when it comes to scifi powered armour (the movie cuts out the power armoured goodness, though).

Sean Robson at Tales from the Flaming Faggot just mentioned some Imperial Marine Traveller minis also apparently wearing power armour, here.
