I just had to. It's nice that there's a modelling table backdrop to put your designs on. Adds some authenticity, to help make up for some of the slightly "off" things about the model itself!

I was actually surprised to get something that both looks this close to the real design, AND has somewhat decent stats. The handgun is a burst-fire weapon that shoots a quick volley of 3 rounds (seemed like an appropriate stand-in for the rapid-fire nature of the Gladius), and the Xyston's role is played by a high-damage chargeable laser rifle. It also has a 6-lock missile system in the right shoulder.

There are some legitimate full-auto weapons I could have used to represent the Gladius, but that one has some utility benefits, and allows me to cover the game's full spread of damage types. All in all, it's a really fun machine to play with, even if it's not something I'd take with me into competitive play.
