Battletech - Set 7 Complete by AlteriusZhang Battletech - Set 7 Complete by AlteriusZhang
Finally Completed the 7th set. This batch contains mechs of my own design, some reimagined TRO 3055 stuff, some commissions for the 3063 TRO, and other misc commissions by individuals.

NOTE: Mech's are NOT scaled.

Starting off, this is my own take on the "Daimyo" from the 3055. Came out a lot heavier looking than I originally wanted, but otherwise satisfactory. Some of the leg-parts look a bit bent, but too late to fix that now. :(
(EDIT: Scaled the Cockpit up so the mech looks smaller).

The second is a "Gallowglass" from the 3055 TRO. I moved one of the Large Lasers to the other side of the body to make the thing more physically balanced. Otherwise, it's the same thing.

The 3rd is a heavily redesigned custom "Cataphract" for the 3063 TRO. Kept the over layout from the original, but changed the form quite a bit. The 3063 variant carries a Gauss Rifle, a ER PPC, 2 ER Medium Lasers, and a medium Pulse Laser.

The 4th is the custom "Sentinel" for TRO-3063. It's been heavily modified from the original. It carries 4 ER medium lasers and 2 Light PPCs.

The 5th is the "Goryo"; something I sketched up months ago in class. Finally had the time to finish it up last night. It's a 50-ton clan mech with 2 ER PPCs, 4 ER med. lasers, and 2 LRM-5s (ammo: 1 ton). It's backed by 15 double heat sinks to keep the thing cool. It's a bit slow for it's size, afaik (6/9 movement).

The 6th is the redesign of one of my first BT mechs; the "Typhon" - original here: [link] Overall, it still looks like the old one, but it's been modified so it looks like the bigger version of the Goryo, to the left of it. Thanks to Solaris Skunk Works, this mech is now functional within the CBT game. It's a 95 ton clan mech with Gauss Rifle (ammo 2 tons), a UAC/20 (ammo 2 tons), 1 Heavy Large Laser, 1 LRM-20 w/ Artemis IV FCS (ammo: 2 ton), and 2 medium Pulse lasers and a head-mounted Active Probe. This is backed with 18 double heatsinks.

The Seventh is another of my own designs - the "Diablo"; a 70 ton IS 'mech. It's armed with an ER PPC, a Medium Pulse laser, a flamer (mouth), a 3-HMG array, 2 SRM-6s, and a Hatchet with TSM. This was one of those rare mechs that was drawn before the stats were created. Originally, it was going to be my fan-mech "the Draugr" but then it came out too blocky and I recycled the drawing for this instead.

The 8th is a custom Jenner for the 3063 TRO, and the last mech that I will work on for the project. Has 3 MRM-10s and 2 ER Medium lasers. There are some alignment problems with this one. But it's too late to fix it now. :(

The 9th is the "Aesir", a commissioned design based on the Blackhawk KU. Has a MML6 and 8 Medium Lasers, and a TAG. Fudgered up on the cockpit a bit, but oh well. :(

The 10th is the "Miko", a commissioned design. It's probably the strangest Battletech 'mech I've ever drawn, but that's because I've been asked to make it look like a miko (japanese shrine priestess). Definitely came out very japanese looking, but I guess it would be fitting for it's theme. It's made to look feminine for that purpose. It's a 80 ton 'mech with a ER PPC, LRM-15, SRM-4, ER Medium Laser, a C3 Master, Targeting Comp, some other stuff.

The 11th is a redrawing of the 3063 Nightsky I did mid last year. I felt like redoing it b/c the original looked like a piece of sh17.

The 12th and final one is the King-Sandman. A 100-ton big brother of the Shadow Hawk. It's armed with a RAC-5, 2 Medium Lasers, 2 ER PPCs, and a Jump Jet pack and search light (?). I noticed a design mistake on one of the ankles, but seems a bit late to fix that now. :(

Your technique for designing and drawing Mechs has increased drastically as time has gone by. These are so much more sophisticated than your previous works that there are scarcely words to describe how vast an improvement has been made.

This particular batch is very crisp, clean and visually appealing. These look like they could be illustrations for a model kits manual pretty easily. It's also pretty easy to imagine color and shading on these, they're geometry just lends itself to imagining the lighting.

Your line symmetry has definitely improved, there are far fewer mind bending angles than you had once upon a time. You just keep getting better, man.
What do you think?

Now THIS are great 'Mech designs! They have this distinctive Anime-style aesthetics, but they still feel bulky and heavy, as any good 'Mech must be. Amazing job, Eriance, congrats! :D

No, nothing like that! I just recieved one today and noticed how boring they can be. Jeez, why do peole do that? :(

No, its my new art post, a fanfic of BattleTech, and I posted your picture in the description because I imagine the Daimyo BattleMech as you reimagined it. Actually, I really like your Daimyo, and cant stand the original design. ;P

I'm also submiting it to the Mech-Warriors group. If its accepted, you will be able to see my story there, too. :)

And sorry for scaring you. :(
