Nemesis Mecha Assault Suit by RageofAchilles Nemesis Mecha Assault Suit by RageofAchilles

The Nemesis Assault Suit is the largest ever produced. Standing 140ft tall and packing enough advanced weaponry to take on a battleship.

They are piloted by the elite of the UEC ( United Earth colonies) in their fight against the corporate executives.

The kit is in 1/300th scale , approx. 14cm ( 5.5 inches) tall.


Thanks for looking :). leave a message !

This is amazing. I love the design. The paint job is excellent as well. Very good weathering. Some of those paint chips must be 10' across ;)
Do you have any WIP photos? I'd love to see how this was built.

Thanks :) I think the kit I finally produced is the best melding of a lifetime of influences.
The paint chips got a bit out of hand to be honest , this was my first time using the technique lol. It would have been nice to have this in a diorama with some wrecked buildings for scale, maybe someday ;)

I didn't take many wip photos , it was such an extended period of construction. Many parts were made only to be thrown out or heavily modified months later. However there are a handful here:

Did you produce this as a kit? I really like the design and the detail. Your hard work really paid off.
I can see a lot of Luca Zamprolo's influence, yet your design is still very original.

I was joking about the paint chip comment. ;) As it is now, without scale reference, the paint chip effect is really great.

Yeah, this and the Phoenix were both destined for coldfusionminis.co.uk , alas I never got to launch the site.
I listed them on Ebay for a couple of months, about a year ago. But only sold a couple of kits, so gave up.

maybe i'll try again some day :)

The Nemesis was in mid sculpt when Luca Z released his first kit ( the Schnabelgun). some of our influences are the same especially mecha in the Kobayashi style, like The-O and Neo Geo kits. But where Luca leans more toward diesel punk, I go for more of a Gundam/Front mission design.

I would definitely say that Luca Z has inspired me to go that bit further, just like he has inspired so many others. :)

That's too bad the kits never took off. That would've been really cool had they done well. I'd try again!

Like I said, I can see where your stuff is similar to Luca Z's, but still very unique in it's own way.
I, too, was inspired by his work. Though sometimes I think his designs get a bit cluttered with too much detail.

Love the design and details...the weathering looks spot on... I'm guessing this one isn't a show room sample from the dents and dings in the paint.

Looks amazing. White is always a colour I avoid except as a spot colour. Love the warmth you have given it.
Looks really lived in.
Fantastic.

Thankyou sir!
Indeed , white paint schemes are always very difficult . Luckily an airbrush is a great tool for creating tonal variation , add to that some thin washes of Vietnam Earth MIG pigments and you can add some depth and interest to what could be a very flat colour.

Thankyou!

One of the stages is the hairspray and salt technique I learned from Kallamity  (check him out)  . you need an airbrush for it to work , but it creates all the paint chipping

:) each part was painted in a 9 stage process before assembly, with 45 parts it took about a week to do.

The scale. It's not right. If the model is 14 cm, then the real deal would be around 14 ft, not 140. Just sayin'.
Reply
:iconrageofachilles:
RageofAchilles Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013

:) it's an approximate scale but in 1/300th, 14cm is 140ft. ( 1mm=1ft)  the 1/300th scale is also called 6mm scale since a human being in that scale is 6mm tall.


if it was 1/30th then you would be right


just sayin ;)
