Ō-Yoroi doesn’t rhyme with anything.

The O-Yoroi was actually my first TAG, but like most JSA units, I have a hard time writing anything interesting about them due to very low comprehension of the Japanese language. I do think it’s super cool that they are named after a classic Japanese style of heavy cavalry armour worn by Samurai as TAGs are considered Armoured Cavalry by most Armies in Infinity. I also like the visual nod to Unit 01 from Neon Genesis Evangelion in the head design.

IF YOU ARE ABOUT TO BUILD YOUR FIRST O-YOROI PLEASE ATTACH THE PILOT ARMS TO THE TORSO BEFORE ATTACHING THE LEGS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Aside from the pilot arms, assembly was pretty straight forward. It has really benefited from the solid pinning job I inflicted on it, as the pose is a bit awkward to transport. Being one of the first models I painted for JSA, the scheme was very simple, Citadel Skull White over an Army Painter Uniform Grey Primer, with a little hawk turquoise mixed with a lot of water sparingly splashed over some areas. The darker areas are just layers of dilute Abaddon Black of differing thickness depending on how dark the areas were meant to be. The reds were the same ones I used on the Keisotsu. The Crazykoalas were painted with the exact same colours as the O-Yoroi.

In the absence of anything meaningful to contribute to language, I thought I’d share a list  I am quite fond of that uses an O-Yoroi.
