A Nu dawn is here.
It birth the light of thunder*,
- zenma5ter (14/12/2012)
Pardon my silly attempt of a Haiku (*and I know the difference between thunder and lightning), but let us get down to business!
The Gauntlet 2.0 hosted by the ever-awesome Lupes (from It's a Gundaaaam!), sequel to the PG Strike Freedom that was an epic of a group build. Now, the Nu new (get it?) is out and wreaking havoc all over the gunplar-sphere. Needless to say, GAF will be joining in the anticipation and creating masterpieces. The PGSF Gauntlet and Sinanju Gauntlet (evilcow era - I had yet to taste the sweet dust of plastics - but I am sure) was a challenge, and only few have been brave enough to wander into the the storm of explosion, and even fewer manage to come out triumphant. This time, there are different categories to guide you through, so choose carefully! The time limit for finishing the kit is 3 months, with the finish date being by the end of March (tentative). Onward!!!!
A race between straight builders to see who can finish building the Nu Gundam fastest and have a simple straightbuild that exemplifies the basics of gunpla building. Anything goes here, so long as you clean the nub marks properly! Fastest completed kit from a set start time wins a prize, so don't break open the plastic the second you get it, we will need exif stamped pics of the runners still in their bags! Extra points for panel lines and decals. OOB Speed build will be from a set agreed time when all/most kits are deemed to have arrived, or all those who nominate themselves for the category have received their kits. Like X date at Y time AEDT you snap your photo of your sealed bags, pick up your nippers and your sandpaper/hobby knife and go hell for leather.
Everyone is eligible to enter that one. Just has to be completely assembled, properly denubbed, nicely photographed, and posed in a way that makes me think you are some sort of aesthetics demigod. Even if you're entering the open or newtype styles you can enter this as well. Consider this category a firestarter for those of us who are going to be painting our kits as well.
(OPEN) GANGNAM STYLE!
This is your standard fare for builds. You can do whatever you like for this category. Paint it in stock colors or your own custom colors, mod things here and there, do something outrageous with weathering or other building techniques. Anything goes here! Best in show wins it, as decided by YOU: GAF!
Kit must be colored in the theme of one of Amuro's old mobile suits. Best execution of theme takes the pony. Here are the suit/schemes eligible for this category:
RX-78-3 G3 Gundam
RX-78-NT1 Gundam "Alex" (counting it since it was intended for him)
MSZ-006-3A Zeta Gundam [Karaba Air Force use]
MSZ-006A1 Zeta Plus A1
RX-93-2 Hi-Nu Gundam
If any knows of any other official suits that have documentation of being piloted by or intended for Amuro, please inform us at the forum.
Our friendly forum techie Fury-s12 whipped up a Schemer App for the Nu Gundam, with 150 colour-able pieces. I mean, come on!!!!
