GN Blade Reference by Tekka-Croe GN Blade Reference by Tekka-Croe
A shiny new reference for the GN blades used by Gundam Dawn. It lacks the ranged features of the GN blades used by the Exia and the 00 Gundam. When equipped, it locks into Gundam Dawn's hand and elbow, leaving the equipment port atop the forearm free for additional equipment. The Dawn is capable of dual-wielding a pair of these, but generally enters combat brandishing only one.

This is a design for my Gundam 00 side-story: Gundam Dawn.

So I've been on a bit of a Gundam-concept-art-bender for the last couple days. Expect a few more shiny new references this week.

Gundam (c) Bandai/Sunrise

Would it be okay if I barrow this for a weapon for a RP? I'll give you the credit.

Nice, I'll order 2 for my Pys-Crow Gundam. It is a primarily close-combat monster-sorry, machine...:P

I'm currently rigging a GN Sword-gun 3 for my Gundam. If I could have 1 of these for the off hand, plus a spare...:evillaugh:

Very nice art work, though I must ask, as a bit of a gundam tech geek, whats the story behind these blades and your inspiration. Does the sacrifice in ranged firepower, give additional benefits aside from increased simplicity/reduced weight/energy conservation/Cost reduction? Do they sort of act like the GN Katar/punching daggers from side manga variant of Exia, 7 Swords Exia? (I.E. Extremely high GN blade particle output for enhanced cutting ability?

Overall, like the Gundam Dawn concept.

How long are you planning this side story to be, and is it going to fit in with the timeline of Gundam 00 or is it an alternate universe deal?

I'm not sure just how long it's gonna be yet. As for the when, it's set to take place within the roughly four-month period between Celestial Being's first appearance and the introduction of the Trinity team. So basically, it takes place sometime during the first half of season 1.

Nice, for a minute I thought you'd done these in 3D.
