Mecha Month #19
Good morning, all, Counterfett here. Sort of a hectic day yesterday, and I ended up taking a week off from Painting With Paint. I have something already done that was supposed to go up, but I guess you'll all have to wait until next week, eh? Hope today goes a little better. In any event, today's installment sees us return to the glorious world of Anime. And to another mecha that can arguable be called power armor, but since the Japanese call it a mecha, it's good enough for me.
I tried watching Appleseed. I really did. I just didn't like it very much. I wanted to. But in any event, in the segment of the movie that I watched before I decided to not finish, I was really impressed with the design, execution, and portrayal of the Landmates.
Landmates seem to be employed as shock troopers or special forces rather than as armored vehicles, but since they are 'piloted' from a cockpit rather than worn, I put them here (since I ruled such when doing the power armor countdown years ago!). They remind me a lot of Votoms, and also of Heavy Gears, from that game.
