Battletech - More mechs. by Amuscaria Battletech - More mechs. by Amuscaria
Another set of mechs i finished today. Most of these are just my practices, but the "Catapult" is for the 3063 TRO. Redraw the "Catapult" to make it look more like the official one - egg with legs. Over all design came out fat and cute, but still much better than the taller sketch i made earlier, i think. The first mech, far left, is the redesign of the 3055 "Dart" i did weeks ago. The other two are my own designs, the Apophis redesign and a new one; the "Revenant". Yes the "Revenant" is indeed based on doom 2's revenant. :D

Catapult looks the Robocop destroyer from Robocop 2.

the apophis
Man Base config is so inefficient.
always has been.
*sigh* i remember when we invaded the Innersphere...

Basic omni pod configs still were unreliable. one guy with a reliable erppc or two and from like a kilometer away poof there goes ur arm 10 if not 100's of thousands of dollars laying on the floor usless... then they always put all my ammo in my L/R torso... sure one IS hit and if ur engine not hit and over heating the its ur ammo and kiss ur ass good-bye.

(I is of Clan Wolf, or was as the cases may be)

-LoL

I was playing Mechwarrior and Battletech via the miniatures when 3050 was still a new release (the tech read out not the comp game)

All clan omni-mechs is/was based on omnipod tech that alowed faster altering of config and repairs because it was a simple case of adding and removing pod instead of integrated equipment.

Well thats all fine and dandy the allocation of parts on your Internal Structure always had Primary Energy weapons on the arms which honestly get sheared of so quickly its sad. And the most dangerous thing you have in a mech is ammo which if hit pretty much toasts your mech, this sad monkey has lost too many that way.

And then theres weapon load outs for versatility... I mean come on... if it miniatures scrap the 3 med pulse take another large and trash the 2 er med toss on 2 mor dbl H-sinks.

If its pc, trash it all and take two ER L-lasers and the rest in heat sinks and set them as separate groups and alternate between them you can keep a steady stream of beams over a click away with out over heating.

>.> sorry that was way indepth and lengthy i work on a mac now so no Mechs for me T.T it got bottled up

I'm guessing you're going to tell me how the Madcat and Vulture sucks too because you don't like how their weapons are placed? :D

umm >.>
senior Timberwolf pilot here
err, mad cat, u inner sphere junkie =P

I believe the timberwolf is one of the best chassis offering high speed, armor and a good weapons plat form... vulture is also kinda the same boat but better as a archer variant. I think the ammo is best stored in the CT cause if it is destroyed ur toast any way.

But yes i hate the weapon placement.
In the video games there so static (and the hit boxes oi!) when really they'd be much more difficult to hit in real life *cough*
in the table top ppl load out there mech's specs to shear off a L/R torso in one or two rounds using targeting computers. so again the arm is pointless almost.
In a real life or at least real life emulating sim pod u could melee with them with would be good. I think i would develop a ER-PPC with a lance like covering so i could stab and the fire ._o


but between the missiles and the arm weapons... yea, i always customize my walking hearse.

Have you considered joining the BT art crew and doing technical drawings for them? I would love to see you're style mechs in new games or books if they ever do a new MW series.

ohh lol. well BattleTech was originally an RPG game (actually it still kinda is) like dungeons and dragons...only with mechs. Mechwarrior is the computer game series that was spawned from Battle Tech. They made a whole bunch of guide books with black and white drawings similar to yours.

Yeah i know. I have 3 of those TRO books, although I never played the tabletop. I wasn't aware they had a set crew of artists. I thought people just come and go, since they change artists all the time.

well, in a sense, those come-and-go artists is what i meant by art crew lol. i guess they aren't really a team, huh? ^^; even still, I think your style would be a sweet new look for a MW game if they make one.

Dunno, maybe. I'm only currently drawing 3055 stuff, since those mechs looks really wierd. I might do some of the other more popular mechs as well, given time.

I should practice this again someday. It seems so hard and stuff but I guess its easier when you know what sort af weapons and stuff the mech will have.

Once again... very nice and cool.

Hey, can I make a request, if your in the mood with all these battletech drawing?

Can you draw my your interpretation of the Jenner? Weather it be Jenner IIC or the Jenner normal, doesn't matter here, as I'm the one asking the favor. (I like the bird legged designed version, but anything your up to would be great, and if you don't want to, I don't mind.)

Just figured if you where in the mood was all. The Jenner is one of my favorite mechs in Battletech, and was my personal ride for Mechwarrior 2.

Amuscaria Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Since the Jenner IIC is part of the 3055 TRO, which i'm current;y redrawing all mechs from. There will be evnetually a Jenner IIC. Although i woudnt jange that much about it. I like how it looked in MW4. :)

They had teh Jenner in Mechwarrior 4? I never saw it in the game... and I own the game! T-T
If they had it and I missed it for some odd reason... I'll be so sad.

Though I think you might be thinking of the Owens, a Jenner wannabe. Still a cool mech on it's own, but I prefer my energy weapons.

either that or it was added by the Mekpak 3 mod for MW4:Mercs. But still, one of my faves. :D

Tesunie Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I have mercs... so it must be the Owns. Looks a lot like the Jenner, but it's systems are set more for missiles rather than lazers and PPCs. Me like my PPCs...
