Question What's your favorite BattleDress?

What it says on the tin.

I am at work and have a slew of filing to do yet, so I will keep it short. Basically it is both an aesthetics and functional question.

Me, I dig the Zhodani BD. I still remember coming around the corner at Napoleon's and seeing the Detrick cover with that sweet Zho BattleDress and that swauve Zho Noble (but at the time I saw it, merely some important dude who was looking for some problem and might be looking at me as its cause). Then I bought the book of the Grand Psionic Race and found a cool culture and some wicked cool Psi rated and usable BD.

At first I used to think the clam shell helmet was cool, but stupid since the crease would be in the way. Then I realized that I often don't spend a lot time noticing me nose so the crease might not be that distracting. Still later I realized with TL-E it probably just seals to finely to see and has optical overlays. Also, I think the faceplate design is better than the Imperial version since if the fancy optical/comp stuff goes to crap the Zho has a much wider and deeper field of view than the Impy does.

And now with Staging and QREBS the Zho can have some nice TL-E BD that can equal Imp BD in some manners (it already beats it for use of psionics.

So that is my vote and comments?
