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.
Hell yeah, the original BGC Hardsuits first popped to mind upon seeing this.. With a bit of Evangelion (Where's my drink! Screw that, gimme the whole effin' bottle!) and <squints> maybe Patlabor as well
Maybe integrate that mainhand weapon on a subarm, so as soon as the user lets go, she can go fisticuff ASAP or vice versa
