The detail shots.



My hotshot Ace



I cut off some of the armour to show off the inner details of the ver ka. Flavour reason is the pilot needed to shed some weight to compensate for the extra weapons.



The pilot consider long range weapons to be cowardly and not chivalrous. As such he have discarded it in favour of an attachment that allow his ball to emulate the appearance of a knight's helmet.



The Pilot's only offensive weapon of choice, a lance, like the knights of old he admire.



To compensate for the lack of effective ranged weapons a large shield is equipped to allow this ball to survive until it is in close quarter range. The shield bear the insignia of the Onion Knight.

Ok. I recropped some pictures to the requested size in the rules.
I didn't feel like cropping all of them since most of them were just different poses anyway. So I posted the required 4 plus some close up detailed shots. Please tell me if you need anymore or if they need to be any bigger.. :)

@ zenma5ter and Shaid! Thanks! :) I only wish I had more time to do more polishing.

@ Sonar! Haha I was definitely inspired by the FF job and Davos from A song of ice and fire/ Game of thrones. I thought the last one was gonna be obscure. I am glad someone got it!

Well, I played Final Fantasy Tactics and it was certainly the first time I learned the phrase but I was more referencing its usage in 'A song of ice and fire'/'A Game of Thrones'.

In the books/TV series there was poor peasant called Davos (an onion smuggler) who later was granted a Knighthood. Other nobles call him an 'Onion Knight' as an insult to mark him as an upstart or someone who don't deserve his station. It also reference the fact that in medieval Britain fake money sometime came with a picture of an onion on them so they are calling him a fake knight as well.

I wanted to show that my pilot was an upstart as well because I had this whole backstory thought out for him. I think I will need to write it down and post it later so the whole name and the insignia make sense. It's a visual pun as well because it's a ball that's made to look like a knight's helmet and an onion. :P That's why I took of some of the armour to show his 'layers'.

Shrek: For your information, there's a lot more to ogres than people think.
Donkey: Example?
Shrek: Example... uh... ogres are like onions!
[holds up an onion, which Donkey sniffs]
Donkey: They stink?
Shrek: Yes... No!
Donkey: Oh, they make you cry?
Shrek: No!
Donkey: Oh, you leave 'em out in the sun, they get all brown, start sproutin' little white hairs...
Shrek: [peels an onion] NO! Layers. Onions have layers. Ogres have layers. Onions have layers. You get it? We both have layers.
[walks off]
Donkey: Oh, you both have LAYERS. Oh. You know, not everybody like onions. What about cake? Everybody loves cake!
Shrek: I don't care what everyone else likes! Ogres are not like cakes.
Donkey: You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious!
Shrek: NO! You dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden! Ogres are like onions! End of story! Bye-bye! See ya later.
Donkey: Parfait's gotta be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet!
