Holy shit, a table top game that's got a near 1:1 female/male parity, and the females have practical armor?? Looks like I'm going to be giving them money (I love painting miniatures for friends, even after burning out on 40K).
Yeah, it's a light weight human scale armor. I think I should have put a human to scale. It's more like a Mass Effect or Bubblegum Crisis armor, light and fast, armored enough to handle small arms fire.
