The armour of the elite Black Guard of house Hood is both notorious and extremely rare, being Lostech of the highest order.
About this creation
No-one really knows where they came from in the first place or exactly how many of them there are, but a testament to their effectiveness is the fact that since the official founding of the Black Guard by John Hood IX, more emperors have been killed because they interfered with the affairs of the Guard than have been assassinated.
The armours are very hardy, but there's rumours that some of them have had to be scrapped for spare parts.
They definitely dwarf humans, though.
Other than that, exact specifications are unknown, since any schematics were destroyed long ago.
Without the cloak.

May I point http://mocpages.com/moc.php/244737 as an example of how the base frame can be modified?
Anyway, I must say I'm glad this is over. I've been feeling more and more swamped every day since I started this; not my greatest idea ever. Now I need to declare a temporary freeze on the two multiplayer projects and get back to work on Rogue Faction.
