      I really like the Spartan, the tiny head really makes them look brutish while the running poses look good and aggressive. Their aesthetic feels distinct from the other factions while still very much feeling "Heavy Gear," nicely done!

      The tank I'm less excited about (Mech > Tank), but I think it looks pretty cool. I think Jared makes an interesting point below about the treads looking a bit WWI-WWII in style, but they also make the tank feel a little more aggressive and, well, brutish like the Spartan. Depending on what's more important for the faction I could see it going either way.

      I love the Spartan model, and the turret of the Mameluke, though I'm not too fond of the Treads.

      Fluff wise, the PRDF has higher tech equipment though in smaller quantities than their polar rivals. I think that angled tread hearkens back to an earlier tank design (T26, Czech 38T and the Ontos to name a few) that was more primative.

      This design looks a bit too unsophisticated for them and not very fitting to the lore of Paxton Arms, their design philosophy, and it's generally superior designs. Perhaps a less angled tread base, or more armored would make it look more "High Tech"?

      Just my 2 cents though, great work in general!

      It is an opinion on the plastic model which was announced so far.I would like a stand model with a natural pose.

      I greatly modified the lower half of the Black Mamba model. I think that it is better not to have the legs of the stand model aligned.

      Pewter model on the left.Modified model at the center.Right is plastic Black Mamba.

      thank you for reading.

      The addition of a new models is good news. I am also looking forward to the next presentation.
      I think Pewter's stand model looks cool in the lower body. Foot shape and pose are important. I hope the plastic model will be the same as well.
