Legionnaer Feuerlanze CAV Foil by RyujinDX Legionnaer Feuerlanze CAV Foil by RyujinDX
Gavil Light CAV Foil Legionnär ‘Feuerlanze’

Gavil's follow-up to the Herzog, the Legionnär light CAV Foil used a similar set of articulated joints, but further refined & simplified to accommodate mass-production methods. It was also noticeably shorter, with a lower, broader silhouette in response to earlier criticisms about the Herzog's height. In order to meet design specifications calling for a light CAV Foil, armour protection has been markedly reduced, but this has been offset to some degree by the use of modular armour sections and attachment points to facilitate easier repair & replacement. The Legionnär was also equipped with a tougher, more heavier blade, designed for close-in cutting and stabbing work.

Depicted is the Feuerlanze, named for its left arm, which was equipped with a large flame projector. The high-pressure pump and ignition system, protected by a thick shield, was mounted on the forearm and was fed by a hose from the fuel supply housed within the heavily armoured shoulder. From the pristine condition, lack of wear and the absence of any factional insignia on its disruptive-pattern lozenge-shaped multi-spectrum camouflage, this picture was probably taken when the Feuerlanze had just emerged fresh from the manufactory.

The Feuerlanze would later gain notoriety for its pilot's tactic of engulfing and blinding an opponent at close range with its flame projector before dashing around & striking quickly from behind with its fighting blade.

A light CAV Foil design for :iconvulnepro:'s Theos Ke Polemos setting, also with his editorial & conceptual input.

Again, I've been slacking off on the artwork due to unrelated stuff (haven't even been dropping by dA of late)...

Now that you've mentioned it, yeah...there is a certain resemblance.

I agree with Grid-gunner. It's so original.

To be honest, I was inspired by some of the camo patterns used in WWI aircraft.

Good work with the colors. Those hexagon like patterns are interesting & new to me!

Glad you liked it, Grid. As it is, the colours are rather monochrome; doesn't hold a candle to your recent work. In hindsight, it could've been improved much more in that respect.

Actually I should have been more specific, its the way you applied the shading and the lighting that make the mech "pop out".
