Battle Mech - Grey Death Marauder by Shimmering-Sword Battle Mech - Grey Death Marauder by Shimmering-Sword
After doing so many Battletech commissions I wanted to do one of my own again, for a little more freedom in mech choice and design. Turns out my last personal BT piece was also a marauder, both done for the same reason, though the old one looks silly compared to this :D

A lot of fans miss the old unseen designs, so for this piece I wanted to create something that was a little more faithful to the old, while also trying to avoid a look that would cause legal issues, and going on a bit of related fluff from the Mad Cat.

2 ER Particle Projector Cannons
2 M Pulse Lasers
1 Gauss Rifle

If I was to redesign another unseen, or any BT mech in general that you feel is an iconic mech that needs a face lift, which would it be?

Why the hell we can't use this design is beyond me. That includes the Archer and all the rest.

Because one side has lawyers that are trolls, and the other side has lawyers that are expensive.

the marauder and the timberwolf are by far my favorite mechs.

The best 55 ton mech and one of the oldest mechs around.

That is pretty awesome, I've been trying to draw a Summoner, (my favorite mech) in a MW:O style, but it keeps coming out awful looking (I have always had difficulty drawing mechs, though people are no problem)

It's all about practice, keep trying and you'll get better.

I expanded this into 1 16:9 format for the background on my laptop, you have full credit in the description, as well as your signature is untouched in the original image
I composited it with imagery from nasa of the moon, and redid the shadows to match, as well as adding the ppc glow lighting. I wish I could generate art as detailed as you.

If I had my choice I would love to see your take on the LCT-1S Locust, it has always been my favorite mech and I hated their project phoenix redesign.
