Back and front WIP power armor by Avitus12 Back and front WIP power armor by Avitus12
This has taken about 10 hours so far.

its power armor/mecha, its about 15 feet tall so its just a mecha but there is a human pilot in the body.

Its got a long way to go before its finished, I'm interested to hear weapon Ideas, and stuff like that thanks.

Well Here Is My Ideas:


Weapons:
-Laser Gatlin Cannon
-6 " missile launcher
-Cyber Plasma Laser

Power Source:
-In neck area
-Plasma

Shields:
-Eos Phase Shift

Hope that this will help you!

You might wanna rethink the colors too, And it needs more decals,
also it needs a thicker torso to fit a cockpit with controls, a screen for an HUD.

While hydraulics can work in larger machines, in power armor hydraulics of this size would be incredibly out of place. More weight than actual locomotion. Plus it would move rather slowly. There are people actually working on power armor today who are trying to perfect a substance that works much like our own muscles only stronger. Maybe something like that might be worth looking into.

love it. This one look like Tau Empire Unit so that'a make me love it more. You said there will be a human inside, I can't imagine how to sit in it because the size is just 15 feet...and the hover head gear that's mean it will attach to the pilot head. right?
on the back you should put more armor plate to cover the engine so it will help to keep it unharm from light weapon.
For the weapon idea, I have no idea what you really have to put in but it's heavy armor so it should be the weapon the can blast out the tank or a squad in one shot and should have only one side R or L, maybe plasma blaster? heavy machine gun?
Electric blaster? missile launcher?

or if you use light armor plate with booster on the back so it's gonna be high movement speed unit so I suggest close combat on one hand with a shield, maybe light metal plate or plasma shield...or maybe close combat and one hand gun for small fire power effective with infantry unit.

that's all I can think about right now, love to see when it's finished.
Hope my idea have you some :)

A railgun, definitely. What program are you using to build this?

When I first saw this I immediately went 'tau'. Were they an inspiration? Assuming the human pilot is in the core of the body, I'd say maybe put some extra amour plates there to emphasis that, but this is just an opinion. Weapons...everywhere and anywhere seems appropriate. Perhaps add in modular docks so the suit could be kitted out for various roles?

This may come as a surprise but the tau battle suits where not an inspiration for this design, I like the "modular docks" Idea though, :D

Is that a 40k Tau battle suit? 'Cause colors, the head, and the general shape reminds me of those...

a manual lifting or sampling mech use in recovery or analysis. Drill bits or probes for soil.

Legs look like the thing could leap quite a distance. Jets on the back to give it more distance on the leap, maybe? Not jets big enough so that it could fly, just leap farther. Claws, swords could work. Retractable blades. Maybe a short range plasma gun. Good concept. I'm interested in seeing where this ends up. Amazing job, so far! :D

Give it a GIANT gun mounted to it's wrists. By giant, I mean like something that would be out of place mounted to an AC-130.

First of all, this is really awesome!!!

For the weapons...I don't know, give it machine guns welded on both arms. No, better yet, on one arm give it a giant assault rifle/grenade launcher, on the other give it a chain gun, and on the shoulders give it some kind of laser weapon. Maximum firepower for human armory :D

I am always a fan of shoulder mounted weapons. A large indepent gun barrel on one shoulder and a missile pack on the other

Some form of side arm in a leg holster would also look quite cool

For small manned mechs like this one, I think it makes sense for them to have some sort of energy sword. They tend to face very well armored, and often nimble, opponents which can be hard to nail with bullets. The right kind of sci-fi sword can pierce armor at close range. Also, having some sort grenade or missile launcher with multiple types of warheads makes it more versatile. In what sort of situations would these be deployed?

you could deploy it fairly much anywhere, it would be very versatile.

I've always had the though for palm cannons, similar in principal to Iron Man's. Imagine a large forearm cannon with a large claw for grappling and grabbing.
I'll admit though, a 15 foot tall machine wont be able to hang on the side of a building very well.
Vague? maybe. But ideas tend to be.

i would say a close range infantry surpression weapon would be a good idea, as a secondary weapon, so your not wasting high caliber rounds on small targets

consider two tau railguns on the back/shoulders, or maybe railgun on the one side, and missile pod on the other ;)
and OF COURSE Miniguns on the hands ;)

Depends on application:
Riot/Crowd Control: Grenade Launcher and Barrier/Tower Shield
Anti-Mech: Long Barreled Sniper Rifle
City Combat: Bullpup/Carbine & Flame Thrower

All with Smoke dispensers

Good design btw.

I like this, the soft colours really work visually. If you're continuing with that colour go for a desert design on the weapons. Long Range Snipers and Pistols.
