The Gunrunner was built to be a versatile Warrior Mecha- to be at home in open country and to assist in Urban Warfare in close constraints.
It has also proved surprisingly effective in jungle conflicts- though of course it can be heard coming from great distances!
It is equipped with the ‘Viper’ hi-penetration magnetic coil particle accelerator cannon as standard on the ‘right arm’ hard-point.
Due to this weapons slow rate of fire many pilots request the AT01 Super-Vulcan Gatling cannon for the ‘left arm’ hard-point, despite its obvious bulk and weight.
The two ‘shoulder’ hard-points are most often mounted with Hell-blast missile launchers which have proved so effective in deployment with the Gunrunners little sister the “Counterblast”.
The chin mounted weapon is a double Starlord machine gun for anti-personnel operations.
Corporate sponsorship displays the winners of the fuel and communications contracts for the Mecha, this style of advertising is common since the arrival of full immersion War coverage on 24 hour News Networks.
There were some early issues with the communication set up as the frequencies chosen were the same as an almost obsolete cell network.
This led to an embarrassing incident where a Gunrunner turned up at an accountants home to take him to the heliport instead of the hover-cab he had ordered!
I started out building a colour variant of the Counterblast Mecha I built last week, then I got inspired by the Boba-Fett window and had the idea for a bigger version. I then got a bit carried away!
Aaahhhh yes, nothing I like to see more than Star Wars sets having given up their flesh to build something cooler than Lucas ever dreamed up in his posh SF ranch. Great use of Fett's canopy and some battle droids!
