Nice stuff Tachyon,the MS are a bit different in design but look good none the less.One of them,I can't remember which though,reminds me of the Xenomorph from Alien and Aliens,just one of those odd little things that occur to my mind.
Do you understand?

Hmmmm, if you're talking about this site - http://www.bad-words.com/images/crossbone.html , then they only have the scans of the first chapter, that is until page 48. The first vol is 176 pages excluding the mech profiles.

My mistake. It looks like a great story. I'm looking forward to seeing some additional scans from you when you have time.

The Zondo Ge- is up now. I'm working on the X1. I have Katoki's line art scans cleaned up. Now I have to finish cleaning up the manga scans.

A sick baby and tax preparations have slowed me down but I'm still working on the Crossbone images.

I need something cleared up. In the Crossbone Gundam manga, aren't the heroes the Crossbone Vanguard? Aren't the bad guys in the F91 movie also called the Crossbone Vanguard?

Yep.According to the Gundam section at MAHQ,the enemy force in F91 is indeed called the Crossbone Vangaurd.Don't know what the connection is though.
Do you understand?

Indeed, the Crossbone Vanguard are the bad guys in F91.

From Gundamofficial:
Crossbone Vanguard A fighting force organized by the Ronah family in U.C. 0106, drawing on the skilled personnel of the Buch Concern and its vocational training school. This private army is meant to serve as an advance guard, or vanguard, for the nation of Cosmo Babylonia. Originally founded by Meitzer Ronah, the Crossbone Vanguard is eventually placed under the command of the mysterious Iron Mask.

After years of preparation, the Crossbone Vanguard enters combat with an assault on the space colony Frontier I in U.C. 0123. This highly motivated elite force far surpasses the Earth Federation Forces in terms of training and tactical skill, and its advanced mobile suits also outperform the Federation's antiquated machines. [Gundam F91]
And the iron mask is Cecily(Bera in Crossbone)'s father. In F91 its basically Seabook, Cecily and co trying to stop the Crossbone Vanguards from taking over. They do succeed, but soon after they discover Jupiter Empire's plans and Bera took Crossbone Vanguard's name because it was convinient to gather troops and to stay underground for battling the Jupiter Empire.

The toughest of the bunch, the X1 page, is complete. Oh, and the color scans are up now too. The X2 and X3 are next - then the section goes public. Thank you, khalahaley!

Until then, here's another preview for you all.

I've got a manga scan of a weapon called the screw web. Is that a weapon of the X1 and X2, X2 only or the X1 custom?

You mean the screw whip? Coz I havent seen anything about screw webs. ANyway, if it is screw whip, its only for X1 custom. Btw sorry for being late to scan the rest, school work's really been brutal lately, I'll try to scan it either tomorrow or the day after.

It also called screw web in SD G Generation F and G Generation : Monoeye Gundam. Then again,we shouldn't rely on Japaneese when they say English word. :wink: I prefer "screw whip" more...

Only X-1 kai has screw whip,this is actually only upgrade from X-1. Engineer of Mother Vanguard develope it to counter EMS-VSX1 Quavarze's long snake hand.(It is only MS in Deathgale team that Seabook can't figure it's weakness.)

Hehe didnt notice(didnt play much of monoeye anyway, for some reason I didnt like it much).. They translated it to screw whip properly in 2nd Super Robot Wars Alpha though. I wouldnt exactly call it a upgrade though, since it replaces the sizzor anchors, which were one of my fave weapons(if you can call it that).. Still cool though.
