Battletech - Apophis - Custom by Amuscaria Battletech - Apophis - Custom by Amuscaria
I havent designed a Battletech 'Mech in a long time (not since I was 12 or 13). Since i've been messing around Mechwarrior 4: Mercs w/ Mektek a bit lately, i decided to see if I can design one after 10 years.

This is the "Apophis" (not sure if the name's been taken by any official 'Mechs yet). Something I rigged up last night when I was bored.

Eriance, I got a question for you...I need someone to help me draw a mech that is a combination of multiple mech designs to make a whole new mech. Could you please send me an email so we can discuss this project?

Hi, thank you for the interest in my work, but I'm currently in school and don't have time to work on any commissions or time-intensive designs. My finals are in two weeks, and my fall semester starts right after that.

The stats aren't outdated, they're just impossible by even level 3 rules. Mech is overweight and overcriticalled by lvl 3 tech but thats fine with me, the mech creator progs are bull anyway. I love the design. Could I use this mech in a fanfic?

I should play that game sometime. I haven't checked on mektek in years.

Anyway, nice work. Good to see some mechwarrior stuff.

Like you Typhoon, it is level 3 in new CBT, which (while not a bad thing) means that it is now not tourney-legal (Clan ER Pulse lasers are a little munchy after all :p) however, I love the art work as-is and I think that you could turn this into a turney-legal design in a snap.

Great job!

Awesome, a great design. Don't worry about the stats being wrong, they made sure not to change any of the design rules in the latest updates.

Beautiful and it's got that sleek cockpit.^^ I wonder why you didn't use particle weapons though; or was that how it is in MW4?

You oughtta try Heavy Metal Pro, if you design more. Saves a lot of work in making the stats.


Nice design and lineart. I can't tell you how jealous I am. Mechanical things are the absolute hardest thing for me to draw.

Excellent drawing. Reminds me of a beefed-up Cougar slightly, though by all means does it have plenty of original pieces.

Regarding old stats: All weapons and equipment is correct. You did not have to allocate the two extra heat sinks due to the size of your engine (For every 25 points of the engine rating, 1 heat sink is integrated. Because the rating is 315, you can fit 12 inside without needing to allocate at all). :P

Amuscaria Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
OH, so that's how it works. I thought they place the heatsinks into the body parts to make them cool faster, lol.

prdarkfox Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
While I do do that for extra heat sinks (that's where most of the criticals seem to be left), that isn't very true. You can still install more if you want though and you would have to allocate them.

using the MW3 tech base? I haven't seen that in a long time. My rig won't run it for some reason. I've tried compatibility mode, different versions of directx, the works, and it gives me an error every time.

Anyway, great to see another MW3 lover ^^

I had the Mechpaks for a while, then I had to reload my HDD. I think MW3 is better anyway, more realistic.

Yeah, dont like how the Mechlab's weapons. I like how its easy to see what weapons the mech has with the big icons, and the drag-and-drop system. But all the weapons are fugdged up because of you can replicate some official mechs due to the limited room.

Sorry, I just downed way too much sugar, and I'm way too tired. I'm going around to random sites commenting random things on other random comments made by fantastic people like you. If you take my tired insanity seriously, then you, my humanoid friend, are indeed a white-tip shark surviving on a star.

Mechwarrior Online. You will not regret it.

If, in some freak accident that will likely incorporate a hippo, 3 purple socks, and a jar of photosynthetic bacteria, you do in fact regret it, then uninstall the game from your computer, stand up, spin 3 times, recite the lyrics to the Finnish National Anthem in German, stick your leg in, stick it back out, do the hoky-poky, and that's what it's all about for the wall-raping mo-fos in my currently tired-as-hell mind.
