Octahedron Gale Warning

Each face in this Magic Octahedron pattern looks like the previous Pyraminx Gale Warning, except that I inadvertently flipped it (mirror image).

Any pattern a Pyraminx can do, it seems an Octahedron can do better.

But don't assume the Octahedron is limited to the relatively mundane patterns as the Pyraminx puzzle. At first the Octahedron struck me as a Pyraminx, just with twice as many faces, twice as many corners, and twice as many edges. But I've begun to discover that it can do a lot more than this. More soon...
