Battle Mech Hodag by Shimmering-Sword Battle Mech Hodag by Shimmering-Sword
2nd of my most recent commission pair for :iconmr-balk: ~mr-balk

An uptonned Axman, the Hodag is a 70 ton heavy.
Weapons:
1 Rotary Auto Cannon 5
12 ER Small Lasers

It weighs more than an Axman yet carries less weaponry, so I can only assume is has infinite armor and ammo, will set fire to your world with a never ending laser show, all the while critting your legs with TSM kicks of doom :)
(didn't get my hands on a full readout)

If I had to guess, I'd say 12 or 16 feet, but that depends how tall those trees are....

12 ER smalls is a bit of a waste. youd be better off with some Medium lasers, or some other weapons

I absolutely love this piece, the background comes in perfectly, its there yet not obtrusive. And it manages to tell a story, while the machine itself tells another one. Its damaged, yet not enough that it will stop its duty, and the way it is damaged shows that it charges head on with little fear. At least this is what I get from the piece. The overall color scheme makes it very militaristic, functional and fearsome. While not necessarily required I feel that some sort of laser pointer on-top of the main gun would make it far more menacing. All in all this is a great piece of work. 9/10 and a favorite of mine.

The pilot wouldn't be able to see / use / need an aiming laser, at least not a visible type, from his cockpit :D
Glad you like my work.

I remember creating a custom Banshee with a similar loadout. Eight medium lasers, a Gauss Rifle and an XL engine with double heatsinks to manage the load.
