Suma Crah - Pincer of the Coast

Postby KungFujiApple » Wed Sep 13, 2017 11:36 am

So this is very heavily inspired by Mark Sakura's Luna-Tick frame. When I saw how he build this, it blew my mind.(https://www.flickr.com/photos/26561076@N07/24586213519/). I had never thought to build a frame in at way, so I went to making one. But only having limited pieces at the time, I came up with this design. I feel it's a much simpler, unrefined version of his, but still I liked how it came out, mainly because it had me think of an entirely different way of building. I would like to give many thanks again to Mark Sakura for his awesome, Awesome, designs, builds, and for sharing :D

Fluff:

The Suma Crah is a division of the Ijad defensive forces that works mainly to defend the shores and waterways. Designed with a body style in similar fashion to the Luna-Tick frame. The "Crahma Sei" or "Shoreline Crawler" frame is watertight, lighter and equipped with larger claws to make it effective in holding on to rocky shore, especially when moving beneath the water. The lighter frame however, limits the amount of depth it can go to generally a 50 meter range.

When in combat the frame is designed for a more "hide and strike" tactic. The frame's leg design makes it capable of quickly scurrying across shoreline terrain or hopping in jumping spider fashion when equipped with boosters. The Crama Sei is also equipped with light distorting technology that makes the frames actual location very difficult to judge. This can prove especially effective when lying just beneath the waves for a surprise attack to any would be threats.

Awesome!

Omitting the octogonal plates of the Luna-Ticks makes those super beginner friendly!

I also really like the placement of the "stinger" weapons, those are hard to make looking natural.

Man, you're making so many cool frames right now!
I like the color scheme a lot, as it really ties in the whole ocean-theming. The builds are awesome, with really nice shaping and I especially like the way you turned the claws on the ends of the feet of the Shoreline Crawlers.

The Luna-Tick has always been an interesting one, though I never really had a chance to explore it. These simpler designs you made based off it are very well done. I almost want to say that I like these better. And I also like to repeat VitorFaria statement about the octagonal plates. This goes to prove that you don't need rare and hard to find parts to make an awesome frame!

Wow guys, thank you very much :) I might add that omitting the octagonal plate was not done on purpose, it was because I didn't have enough of them, so I tried putting something together with what I had.

Thank you, I was just messing around with different angles and found that seemed to look better :lol:
