To the anon that wanted the source on this.
Remember to explore tumblr kids.
I wanna raspberry her rich, milk-chocolate tummy
That still doesn't make any sense at all. Literally every general on /co/ only talk about one series. We're not getting deleted because people don't want to talk about one aspect of something /co/ related.
You had one job, Cow.
Looks like you missed some stuff mainly
>Not mine, I found it on reddit. And I have no idea who originally made it.
Yeah, I'm not sure why either honestly. We're following all the rules, waiting till page 10, not using lewd OP images etc.
It's flexible! It works!
Pyrrha in the top ten, A-okay by me.
So while I was doodling I've been thinking, I have been really unfair to you guys for not drawing some lewd fanart.
So here's Blake in one of those dakimakura poses.
If you don't like nudity, please do not open the image since it is very graphic in nature.
Pls don't ban me mods.
>Anywhere but the bottom
Faunus loving scum.
So, here goes operation "Hot Fear" in the heart of South Africa.
Our operatives: Tuckson, Blake, Adam, Winter, Weiss, and Qrow.
It's a waterfront mission with a fairly large building right at the start, giving us plenty of options as far as cover is concerned.
Let's just pray there aren't any ET's in those rooms.
this took way longer than expected
it pretty much nailed my top ten, the second row is kinda questionable.
Winter's scanner revealed a pod of sectoids, currently hiding behind that red shipping container.
Off to the right the three Faunus prepare to breach the two interior rooms, while Qrow and Weiss get ready to storm the meld canister and maybe blow a hole in the container for Winter to snipe through.
So do you guys want me to post a turn-by-turn type deal or just major moments in each battle?
Anyone else wondering why the rest of team ABRN isn't on beaconship yet? And for that matter, Banesaw is missing too
Anyways, here's my thing, almost can't argue
Anon last thread was talking about how Matt Hullum secretly hates RWBY and wants to cancel it, but can't due to the fact that he would look like a cunt muffin if he cancelled a dead dude's show.
>Japs still making it big with it
>sell them the rights
>RWBY animu gets made
Second best girl.
You hate team JNPR bro?
>but can't due to the fact that he would look like a cunt muffin if he cancelled a dead dude's show.
He would have looked like one if he did that the second monty's death was announced. He should be fine now. Just end it with the bad guys winning or something.

>Coco's weapon make her a stationary target made to kill swarms of Grimm
>Huge ass slow dude, also with weapon made to kill Grimm
>Got rekt by two top tier assassin/thieves for hire with weapons made to fuck up/stun people
GEE FUCKING MILES AND KERRY WITH THAT JOBBING, WHAT THE FUCK MAN FUCKING MARY SUES EVERYWHERE
That means jack shit except that her bullets are stronk and she can stand there and shoot things. We had no details on how skilled she was in full on combat.
Fucking this. I've seen you morons really try to cry bad writing every episode of volume 3, but this is probably the most idiotic one.
She also hit those Nevermores that were giant and flying slowly in a straight line directly towards her. Emerald and Mercury were the first opponents she fought on screen who didn't hold still and let her kill them.
Coco and Yatsu are very powerful, but seemingly slow fighters. Coco's minigun can be devastating against big and/or slow targets, but is much less effective in close combat and against fast targets, which we saw when Mercury got close to her. Yatsu's weapon has long reach and power, but is also not very ideal up close.
Emerald and Mercury were great counters, because they are a pair of fast and mobile blitzers. Coco and Yatsu can definitely kill far more Grimm than Emerald and Mercury can.
I didn't see the new ep yet.
However Coco is like a support gunner person. Lots of firepower, but not a lot of maneuverability. So when a highly maneuverable guy like Shotgun Legs, I don't know his name, gets in close, Coco is at a serious disadvantage.
You can see this in several other things, off the top of my head, in World of Tanks, a Tank Destroyer is going to have difficulty taking down a Light Tank. The LT is just going to circle strafe the TD, while the TD doesn't have the turret or hull traverse to match the LTs speed. Despite the TDs gun being more than enough to one-shot the Light Tank, it's just too fast for the TD to bring its gun to bear accurately.
I think Coco's thing is that she's powerful but not skilled. She can shoot a giant thing from the sky, but doesn't have the skill to track a small, fast-moving target. Add the fact that Yatsu's a fucking tank and they never had a chance. Fox would have been a more effective partner, they definitely needed someone with more maneuverability/reaction speed
Also Penny tournament fight fucking when?
Eh, I can buy the grimm focused weapon. It seems a little outlandish to just automatically declare them shit though.
Seems like their team is retarded for sending them into battle then. Did we ever find out what the bunny-girl's weapon was?
LAnon, if you're out there, check your email. We've got shit to discuss.
We don't know what's in Velvet's box yet. I'm betting the souls of her aborted litters.
Anyway, yeah, Coco seems like a poor choice to put forward in the tournament. Lots of potential damage output, but mobility seems more important in hunter vs hunter fights. It could be that Coco wanted to move on while Fox and Velvet just didn't want it that much. Velvet seems meek and I'm not sure she'd want the spotlight or to go up against Coco if she were excited for it.
One of my personal favorites
>mfw no face

Grimm Eclipse model hacks please
Alright, I should have some quality Webms of the next mission. Unfortunately all the ones of this mission were shit.
We had a few close calls with Qrow, but thanks to a timely smoke from Blake and his own medkit he made it out just fine. The real MVP here was Winter, she landed several <50% Overwatch hits with her Marksman's rifle to take out ET's attempting to flank Tuckson during his mad dash for the meld.
>Muh waifu landing so many hits
Too bad she'll probably die by some bs Thin Mint shot
I believe Pyrrha has far more sinister motives and is more manipulative than her appearance suggest. Why else is she spending her time with Jaune, training him all this time, with no clear expectation of reward or benefit? She knows how special Jaune is and is using him for her own ends. In summary, she's pulling a Palpatine on the good guys.
Pyrrha Nikos' true identity is Autumn.
Her color scheme also matches and autumn,
though that's just me remembering the cereal box.
Honestly, I'm not fond of Pyrrha's speech patterns, tone, and vocabulary. It just seems too formal, rigid and thus unrealistic. She even avoids contractions and acronyms most of the time.
>Why else is she spending her time with Jaune, training him all this time, with no clear expectation of reward or benefit?
Shes doing it all so she can dominate him in bed. Her reward is pleasuring herself with the body that she made.
Because she wants to be with someone who's human
Actually there was a theory that popped up about her during the second season, that Pyrrha is actually some sort of "aura vampire", and that she's building Jaune up as a food source.
You just know Moon guy thinks it would a shocking turn of events and a tribute to his amazing writing when he reveals Jaune happens to have the super special snowflake semblance that Cinder and her gang of misfits are watching out for.
I hope Casey does more songs like this, for Monty.
After the last mission, Winter was promoted and got the Ranger perk (Fitting given her weapons), Adam became an Assault, Blake became a fitting Scout, as did Weiss following in her sister's footsteps, Qrow became a Rocketeer, and Tuckson is now a gunner.
Didn't work out so well for Coco, Tuckson...
Alright, who do you guys want to send on the UFO mission? Neo, Cinder, and Glynda are back in the rotation.
Somethin' straight outta Twilight
Those three for sure, and some randoms to even the ranks out, don't want rookies on a Terror mission
>Yuri is using his Sasuke voice, not even bothering to change it and Vic is using Edward Elric voice, but a little more raspy.
Why? These actors have no range and I can clearly hear their recognizable voices when they should be playing different characters. Besides, I hear these voice actors already in tons of anime, video games, and films.
Keep in mind that the first UFO is almost always a cakewalk, so sending all three might be a bad idea.
If you're still around, it's X-COM Enemy Within using the Long War mod, which more than doubles the content. It's like the Project M of XCOM.
Yuri doesn't have a different voice, and Vic isn't much better. Why is that an issue though? Even most Nippon VAs sound exactly the same in every role they play. Y'know why? Because that's literally their voice. If people didn't want their voice, they would use someone else.
Not yet, in Long War the A-Team is much more fluid, often consisting of about 12 people with a few substitutes. We don't even have that many promoted units yet.
I'm thinking of sending in the midget waifu squad, with Neo, the Malachite twins, Velvet, Ruby, and the Great Shepard Port.
I wish RT changed Adam's VA. Goddamn, the guy's acting is awful in Blake's trailer. It's not like anyone will notice, though. I mean, that's the only RWBY video where he has lines.
Not the same person but,
With Nippon VA's the only thing I really care about is how they actually act when VA-ing since I hardly care about how they sound.
With American VA's I care about range mildly more than acting since I understand what they say. Only in some cases are them using they're regular voice fine.
The 'nyaaa~' really is what sells it for me.
>Jaune gets ntr'd by Neptune
Well alright. I guess that's a thing. Makes it that much easier to make my
Jaune/Cinder childhood friends crackship endgamework.
>mfw imagining Cinder trying to comfort a heart broken Jaune
>all according to plan
Jaune and Cinder make for the best moments
>this reveal happens
>Jaune is in disbelief and asks why
>Pyrrha smilingly replies "Oh Jaune. Did you really think I fell for you because of your looks or personality?"
Would address Pyrrha's weird obsession with him, give them both something more interesting to do, sink Arkos and
pave the way for a better Jaune shipall in one move. I can dig it.
Midget Waifu Squad is a go!
We have Ruby, Velvet
the fedora protects her ears, Neo (in Licorice form), Melanie, Miltia, and The Great Shepard; Port.
Velvet and Neo's colors are invertedm but overall not too shabby considering the limited options.
> YFW it turns out that Cinder is essentially a rule 63 Kilgrave for Jaune and everything that she has done up to this point is to ensure that she and Jaune are together with no competition or distractions
If anyone knows of an easy way to make webms I'd appreciate it, google's giving me nothing on this.
All according to keikaku.
>Operation Black Druid
I'm not gonna lie here, this is a terrible landing zone.
We're going to have to haul ass to that log just to get halfway decent cover, and if there's a pod outside the UFO there's a high risk we'll be flanked.
The strategy here is to split up into two groups and search for active pods, eliminate them, then attempt a breach on the UFO's interior.
You can tell that Coco and Yats's plan was to stay in the open center area where Coco could hold down M1 like a true hoovy and just scorch earth policy any enemies and if they somehow started to get close Yats could just smash the floor and fuck their approach up. Unfortunately for them, Mercury and Emerald didn't just do the blind charge every other team in the tournament did so far.
Webm's for retards https://gitgud.io/nixx/WebMConverter
Its where I got mine
I fact check most of the shit I read. I only get to actually see 1 out of 4-5 threads so I just go by what I read here.
Yeah, but I don't think that he's going to the same places Em and Merc are. But fuck it, I don't seem to know what the fucks going on.
This is the kinda shit I was worried about.
Right off the bat we get a pod activation, and Neo gets suppressed.
The Malachite twins take down a drone, but the sectoids and Christ knows how many of their brothers remain.
Neo's a shifty little ball of homicide though, she dodged two overwatches this turn.
> Cinder moved her right hand towards Jaune’s face, slowly and methodically like it was the most delicate glass. Jaune flinched away from the appendage, remembering what those hands had and could still do if Cinder wished to.
>Upon seeing the younger man’s reaction, Cinder’s face… fell. She looked genuinely hurt that Jaune would be afraid of her.
>“Are you afraid of me, Jaune?”
>“Terrified” the scion of the Arcs replied, honestly
>At that the Arc looked furiously at Cinder.
>“Are you kidding me? You’ve killed people, you hurt my friends. Why wouldn’t I be afraid of you?”
>At that Cinder looked confused, before looking indignant at Jaune’s statement.
>“Oh… are you talking about that Nikos woman… Jaune, you cannot pretend that she didn’t irritate you with all that pining… I did you a favour…”
>Jaune glared at the woman whom claimed that she loved him until something unexpected happened.
Until shit gets interesting I'm going to just post the mission end screen and tell you guys who did great and got promoted, otherwise there'll be just way too many images, even if I just take the highlights. Once the missions get harder then I'll start up with the mid-mission screencaps again.
Outsider got completely wrecked by Ruby and Neo, while Velvet and Port drew the attention of the other pods, Neo just Sprinted to point-blank range with the Outsider and one-shot it.
Port did suprisingly well, he took out two drones flanking Velvet and tanked an Overwatch round so she could escape.
Nobody bullies the bun on his watch.
Ruby just stone-cold executed the last ET after Velvet and co spent an entire turn taking potshots at it.
Another flawless victory.
You can never have enough yandere.
I present: The ZWEI
Our first SHIV is ready for combat.
As for promotions, the Malachite twins became Medics, Ruby is a Sniper, Port is a Engineer, and Velvet took the path of Infantry.
I love this batshit Cinder, especially when she drops the act of it being 100% genuine love.
Well, you wrote yourself into a corner where he has to at least try to run to somebody.
If you want to end it earlier though he could run to
the sweet embrace of Death. After all, that's really the only way he can 'win' against this Cinder.
Winter getting knotted by Summoned Beowulf? Anywhere
The thread needs more people like you anon, that was really really good.
Fuck if I know man, I think it's some fuccboi with a proxy net triggering automod.
Here you go:
I'M AN ABSOLUTE MADMAN
Different strokes for different folks, there's always a handful of fans for every writefag.
I mean my half-assed Yang fluff gets posted every time someone asks for fluff, for fuck's sake, so there's bound to be a few that like your stuff.
Working on the smugbug again, since my last one was kinda crappy.
Why is she so perfect RWBYg?
Can confirm. Plotting ways to make more money off of subscribers as we speak
>After much deliberation, we at RoosterTeeth have decided to write SSSN out of RWBY. We learned that fan opinion is important and in addition we will be making Bumblebee and White Rose canon. We hope you continue to watch and enjoy RWBY. - Miles Luna (12-1-2015)
He came back not long ago doing one for the start of volume three with one of the team kidnapped after the breach, and Anon had been in a coma the whole time, and they wound up saving their team mate.
He came back not long after that to keep going, but no one participated in it so it just kinda died.
Hope he doesn't give up on it cause of one bad night.
>Combination sword and 6-shot pin-fire revolver .38 caliber
>Very peculiar combination war axe and matchlock gun
here is where he came back
here's where he died the next part but no one joined in https://desustorage.org/co/thread/77104568/#q77105021
and here's him talking about possibly throwing AMBR away and restarting with a different one. It's the last we've heard from him.
Saw something similar at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The description even said was used for hunting!
>Yuri voices random Bandit voice in Dragon Age Origins
>6 Bandits all attack me

>Can't bring myself to kill them because I love Mercury to death.
>There will never be a RWBY beach episode with a game of volleyball reminiscent of the food fight.
>Both scarred on their faces
>Both use gunblades
Weiss confirmed for Squall.
Squall never shoots with his either. The bullets are for making the blade vibrate.
From what I saw on the original desgins that they gave away as posters during extra life, Myrtenaster was supposed to look a lot more like the FF8 gunblade. I'll see if I can find an image.
okay, so not entirely the same, but the handle was much more like a gun in the early build
Yeah I've seen those too. Pretty sure you can find them on the wiki. I greatly prefer the design we have now. Myrtenaster is one of my favorite RWBY weapons.
Interesting. Almost reminds me of the way you can finish a move with a few shots in Bayonetta. I felt like they were pretty useless though.
>mfw he will never start making Ace Combat references in RWBY
Damn, that is really cool.
Did anyone else really love the Mirror Mirror reprise we got in the last episode? I hope that Red Like Roses, From Shadows, and I Burn get something like that too.
We've transcended catalogs. We're in our own dimension right now.
Works for me. Now we just need the other two. I could definitely see some kind of new interpretations of From Shadows and I Burn coming from Blake and Yang's contact with Adam and Raven this season.
Dude kinda looks like a tool.
What a manlet.
>Implying Ryan would have let this happen to Neptune.
>implying someone on 4chan can match that magical adonis
One of my favorite stories in these threads.
I was laughing through the boner.
>Emerald steals people's clothes to try on since she grew up in rags.
>Implying Ryan wouldn't have let that happen to Neptune
>Implying it was not all part of a plan that let's Port win the Weiss bowl.
Ryan already has a majority of the women.
It was for Octavian.
Much support was given, and the rest is history
How can one man be soo Based?
Reminder that Weiss already has summoned part of the knight, for a few seconds.
can't believe I didn't notice that before
And we've never talked about this before? Or I just missed it all. You'd think the fandom would go pretty nuts about something like this. Pretty damn cool, and shows that Weiss' fight with the knight wasn't totally a fantasy.
Blaine does a lot of liveaction stuff at RT, both in front of and behind the camera. He's really funny and is a pretty big broguy. Has a habit of taking off his shirt, whether people ask him to or not.
Huh, looking at this Emerald must have taken atleast one shot from Coco, and Yatsuhashi did manage to do some damage to Mercury.
One thing I never understood about Weiss.
Her sword looks something like a mix between an estoc and a schiavona, she stands like stabbing is her primary attack method, yet she normally slashes with wide arcs or uses her glyphs.
Is Weiss just terrible at fighting and gets by on physical ability alone?
I guess efr-s is doing porn again.
This one apparently was a request.
Why don'the you guys try your luck and request sonething with him?Just remember he won'the draw anything
against his OTP.
No no, I get that Weiss doesn't fight like her weapon suggests she should, but I don't really think it matter much to the makers of the show.
How should Weiss fight with a rapier anyway? Mostly just stabbing instead of her slashes?
Lots of stabbing, emphasis on zoning, point control, small motions and actions making big impacts.
Yes, entirely. Fencing isn't about speed, it's about killing form. Basically, when the slightest speed is applied, to the target, it should look like a goddamn rocket just stabbed them in the chest.
You know how the jab is the simplest form of punching? Fencing is the simplest form of stabbing.
Also defending from said stabbing, but I digress.
It is very not-flashy.
Maybe that's part of her need to improve? I dunno. How did Winter's fighting compare to the intent of her weapon?
I thought rapiers were twangy? Or am I thinking too much about cartoon swords?
I need to into actual fighting theory. Shit seems pretty cool.
Because who's gonna animate actuall nitty-gritty of Jaune ramming his entire body into an Ursa and just going to town on its side like a psychotic berserking son of a bitch?
It's not pretty enough for Monty.
You don't say?
I didn't realize that when a girl with two guns and a monkey with gun-chucks got their asses beat by a guy with a cane
I've complained about Yang's boxing form and actually have defended Ruby's fighting style. An unusual weapon for fighting, sure, but if she's aerial, like she often is, a scythe is a perfect weapon.
>Only time Sun and Neptune resemble good characters is when they're fucking eachother.
Actually, the point of the weapon isn't pointed at the enemy. The standard hewing motion for a scythe would always have the blade at an enemy unless you sincerely fuck up.
The sick reality that /rwbyg/ might not like is that
Ruby should have Neptune's weapon, only as a sniper rifle.
Spinning was goddamn idiotic.
Her weapon is more like a saber, so In theory an instantaneous rush forward would be ludicrously good, but Winter doesn't exploit it very well. Her pointing it at him just before she moved meant she had to wind up after landing. The scene where Qrow is casually dodging makes it seem like she's aiming for extraneous areas (Head, arm, etc.) rather than the center of mass. Speaking from the sport perspective you want to either be coming down or to the side toward the body or the head in a way that the other guy can't slip out of the way. You want your swing to be in time with your step so that it's faster.
There's exactly one moment where Winter is actually standing anything near like a fencer and it's when Qrow is tauntingly clanging their swords, but even then her foot positioning is atrocious.
You're thinking of a fencing (sport) foil, Soup. They're made to bend so that they don't fucking kill people in competitions. The real swords are incredibly stiff metal that you'd nick your finger trying to twang.
I thought that was pretty obvious.
sorry, I'm terrible at that shit.
I just think it'd be neat and there are so many ways for interesting stuff to happen.
>Rube vs Pyrrha
>"It's like she's a magnet! I can't get away from her!"
Rose Petal Charge Fuck everyone. This is my guilty pleasure.
Torque gained isn't worth the extra time or the risk. One of the reasons that rapier worked as a weapon is because those huge swings didn't mean much if the enemy could poke you in the chest and you died.
Economy of motion, control, and exploiting weaknesses would be better use of attention.
I was talking about spinning as an attack maneuver rather than to just a rapier itself.
A rapier is a thrusting weapon, I don't know why you would spin in it.
And that beautiful Prise de Fer.
It's not so much a matter of being confident in your speed so much as being aware of how fast and reactive your opponent is at the time.
Look at what Uriah Hall did at the Holmes Rousey fight. Spun three times and not once did his opponents hands drop from his head because the other guy was still roaring to go.
Compare that to what Jon Jones did with his elbow, or negro man in Glory Milan. Or that one guy in Bellator who is also black. Either their guys were fucked up and walking into it, or at range and not looking at it.
