Actually something that I'd be more interested in commissioning than the Free Quebec SAMAS would be a technomagic "Tank Suit" of power armor for a Dwarf.  By that I mean something that looks a bit like Star Craft space marine armor, but the helmet is a dome (can see through front and back) with glowing runes for a heads up display, for the face seen through the dome, imagine a dwarven version of this img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20….  Being a "tank suit" (i.e. large) the Dwarf's feet would stop above the knees of the power armor and the Dwarf's arms would be inside the center chest cavity which is a little like a bubble (in terms of shape, so that there's room inside for his arms, but the body isn't clear) and there is a big glowing gemstone in the center of the chest (a little like in an iron man suit where there's something in the chest) and there are runes all over this thing and it's wielding something that looks like a double bladed lightsaber made out of lightning (in particular a "thunderlance", the charater's name is Antonius Thunderlance and in his amor he is the "Adamantine Dwarf").  to get the sizing, this is under the interpretation of a Dwarf being about 5 feet tall, so the tank suit is probably around 9 feet to 10 feet tall.  If you can see what the dwarf is wearing inside the tank suit it's just a black body suit.  The suit would have jump jets in the back so that it can jump kind of like how the hulk jumps.  So is that doable and if so how much would it cost?

I sent you the $15 on paypal
By the way... this 36.media.tumblr.com/c0ee70cd67… (the free Quebec SAMAS) was my favorite suit of power armor from Rifts... what are the chances of getting a render of it?  is it too hard to kitbash? (note that this is not _yet_ a second request)

How much would it cost to commission a pic of just the SAMAS silver eagle, maybe you could just post the flying one in your scraps?

The flight image was scrapped, but for $15 I'll redo it, and you can have a digital file of it big enough to print a poster. mikeleonard14@yahoo.com is my paypal.

How did you have the SAMAS?

I kitbashed it. Xurge armor suits, Davorama's F.V.C.S., Mock's The Gun sets, DZFire's Nurnies Greebles Parts and Pieces, etc.

We are graphic designers, so we have to do what we got to do with what we have with the time allotted us.  Its an interesting solution you came up with, the kit bashing is nearly perfect to Long's illustrations.

Long never illustrated the Silver Eagle; I'm working on the Old Style SAMAS now, and that is based on Long's drawings. Also going to do the Super SAMAS, recreating the Long image of the two SAMAS in the desert from the first edition RIFTS Main Book.

Could you post just a shot of the silver eagle SAMAS with the helmet on and no one in front of it (it doesn't even need a background).  I'm looking for a piece of character art for a first time player of mine (his first time playing an RPG).  He wants to play a Sergeant Kuan Bailey (whose an Asian male) who is from Schriever Air Force Base.  I'm actually using a homebrew system that I call 3D (because it uses a dice pool with 3Dice in it) which has some (minimal each) similarities to Marvel Superheroic Roleplaying, Fate, FFG star wars, WotC Star Wars Saga Edition, WEG star wars, FUSION, and many others... about the only thing it has in common with the palladium system is the concept of mega damage (with 10 damage = 1 mega damage, rather than 100), but actually it has a simple, streamlined rule set with fast well balanced play, and statistics that JUST WORK RIGHT.  It promotes both a narrative and a tactical (combat uses minis on a gridded battle map) play style.  I can send you (or anyone else who wants them) a copy of the rules if you like

I'd love to see a multi-angle study on that Silver Eagle. Nice work!

I did an in-flight image first but decided I didn't care for it (the flames weren't right).  May end up in my scraps here sooner or later.

Making the SAMAS could not have been easy. Nicely done.

If you are going to be doing SAMAS I will have to think on asking for another commission. Let you know soon. :)

Thanks John! It was a fun challenge. The pilot is modeled after the guy I tagged on my original share on Facebook.
