My next creation from the Break Blade manga/OVA the Fafnir, a Golem that's used by the Krishna military. This particular unit belongs to General Baldr, one of Krishna's two great Generals. I tried my best to make the model as accurate as possible and I'M quite pleased about the resaults. I built almost all the Fafnir variants that are shown in the manga or the OVA so I'll upload a few of those too. Now on to the moc it self!

Note: the black part coming out of the shoulders is supposed to be some kind of a cloth
Leg detail: the big black area is also a clothing (look at reference pics)
Skirt armor detail
Additional Pressure gun ammo (earlyer I called them needle guns but in reacent translations it's called pressgun instead so I'll be using this term from now on)

cockpit hatch (closed)note: I haven't built a cockpit hatch on the other golems because the hatch was behind the neck on those golems

Quartz long sword, crafted from high quality quartz

The "pressgun", using high pressure to shoot quartz projectiles
note: this is the Krishna army standard issue pressgun(different from the Athens type both in range and caliber)
The shield can be stored on the back
fits right in!
little posing. Note: i didn't do much poses, mostly showing that the model is flexible
A little group shot with the other variants and with the captains: Cpt. Elsa/Erza with the blue golem, Cpt. Sakura with the light blue golem. The black golems are city guards.
I'll upload the other variants later on. Thanks for viewing and don't forget to share your toughts on this in the comments!

Well, at this rate, you'll have all the golems completed soon. What will you do once you're finished? ^Blub^
Well once I'm done with all the golems I'll resume my Mobile Suit "factory" and build the suits I was always talking about but like the Flag from Gundam 00 or the Strike Noir from Stargazer. I'll build while I still have inspiration, and right now I got tons! :D
