About this creation
Praetorian Combat Armor

Armament: XMS-86 12mm Minigun

Weight: 8.1 Tons

Max Speed: 70kph

It’s been about six weeks since I’ve added anything. With the release of Halo Wars came a plethora of stuff to be built. Though I don’t own the game, after seeing clips of a unit called the “Cyclops” I’ve been inspired to build a combat armor similar in appearance and function.



The first thing that I tried to do was to add a militaristic look hence the bulky build and partially olive drab paint job.






To add some of that bulk I built a specific power source bulge on the back of the Armor.







To add some idea that it was credibility I also built in a Ground Scanning Laser System similar to what modern unmanned ground vehicles use to see the land and guide themselves.





The cockpit cover was taken from my Ballista Combat Armor and as such covers the entire pilot (except for the small opening he uses to see).









A unique feature of the Praetorian is the ability to mount opposing fully rotating tripartite manipulators (hands).



Each “finger” also mounts a fully rotating and opposing sub-manipulator for precision handling of smaller and more delicate items.



The name “Praetorian” (like in Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator”) comes from the elite military class of Ancient Rome (it was to be Legionnaire but that’s the name for a common soldier).



The standard armament for the Praetorian is the XMS-86 “Shredder”
12mm Minigun loaded with 1200 rounds of ammo capable of firing 2000 rounds/minute usually programmed to fire 50 rd bursts. This weapon is very useful against infantry and medium armored targets and can fire multiple types of rounds including armor piercing and explosive rounds.



You might have noticed SNOT panels on the shoulders and right forearm. These panels are extra hard points for additional weapons.



"Okay! Okay! No more “mom” Jokes."

you definatley got the milatiristic feel to it with the color scheme and the heavy tip feel to it and weapons but what gets my attention most is how blended this is. The heavy style goes with the color scheme the weapons fit it nicley and the cockpit suits a heavy armor type

I really like the torso/cockpit on this, but that's about it; the arms stick out a bit much and the shoulders are too large, the legs just look a bit odd, although the general shape is fine.

Nooo! I was about to use this name (Praetorian) on an MOC to be posted tomorrow... Oh well, I'll find something else that works. Aside from that, great hardsuit, the chunkiness is a definite plus. The cockpit design is also very unique, and looks fairly straightforward (as they can get quite complex), yet is very effective.

sweet! Love the heavy look to it. The "hand" is pretty cool too and I love the minigun. I must say that this is the first time I've actually liked the green on a combat armor. Great job buddy! Peace - Packie
