Dies-Gund N'vos Tessai FOIL by Tabnir Dies-Gund N'vos Tessai FOIL by Tabnir
CAV FOIL design for :iconvulnepro:'s Theos Ke Polemos project [special thanks to him for the naming and backstory below].

The Dies-Gund N'vos Tessai CAV FOIL model was jointly developed and manufactured by the Indus based manufacturing corporate entities Dies and the Gund FOILArbeiten plant in the political bloc of Germane. A relatively recent model in the line of FOILs by this collaborative union of two manufacturers (much like the Jiendel Gavil FOILs), the 'Tessai' favors more aggressive pilots with its digitigrade stance and lack of shield. This N'vos Tessai, as shown here, is a stripped down model, thin on armor for extra speed and maneuverability. This machine is tailored to its pilot, a skilled swordsman with a swift and graceful combat style. The thin armor is a weakness, to be sure, of this otherwise elegant CAV design but an effective FOIL operator can always exploit the advantages over inherent flaws. Even with the thinner armor a CAV FOIL in the hands of a capable pilot and faedi control entity is a dangerous and formidable opponent. The standard, off the factory body, has more armor plates and is a little less maneuverable but still an effective machine.

Update 2.7.11 Mike unveiled the colored version -- go check it out! [link]

you're right the Pryramid head is hardly similar to your own design, which would if I'm seeing it correctly wouldn't look even remotely similar from any other angle. dosen't even look THAT much like it from this angle to have cause for the reference . but eh, you can always expect the viewer to see what you didn't expect. I still remember a comment from one of my older pieces "is that his wang?!" which left me confused as the character in question was female...

at any rate, another excellent piece of art from you. and as much as I love seeing your mecha designs don't tell me you're giving up on your combat suit designs, they where sweet.
