Battle Mech - Kell Hounds Warhammer by Shimmering-Sword Battle Mech - Kell Hounds Warhammer by Shimmering-Sword
As noted in my last journal, what started as a personal exercise to redesign classic and unseen mechs (Marauder first) is now a project being commissioned by No Guts No Galaxy [link] . Now I'll be able to churn out the designs at a much faster pace :)

A 70 ton Warhammer 4L sporting Kell Hounds mercenary colors.
Weapons:
2 Particle Projector Cannons
4 Medium Pulse Lasers
1 Streak Short Range Missile 6

So this is where it started. I like this design. It reminds me of the Loki.

hm... unseen mechs... the marauder is unseen? one of my person faves in heavy. the marauder II is amazing because it can mount a clan rail gun. in fact, it's the only other mech besides the behemoth II that can mount that weapon.

Technically there wouldn't be that restriction, that's unique to the MW4 slot system. The railgun however is just a weapon that showed up in a few videogames and isn't really proper canon in Battletech. If it were, any mech could mount it provided it had the tonnage and crit space, though it would likely have Heavy Gauss type rules where non assaults would have a harder time firing it.

well, I guess my copy of mechwarrior 4 mercs got some of the expansions. but tonnage wise most assaults can carry it. only problem is it requires 7 crit space where as the heavy gauss is 4. only the dorsal guns on the behemoth II and marauder II have that kind of space. I know because I looked at every mech in the game to figure it out. long drawn out process.

oh crap, I wrote all that and THEN realized what you were trying to say. hm. I didn't know the slot system was unique to mw4. but that's all I've played. I wanted to get more because the games are fun but haven't. anyways sorry about that

I've seen this concept art done now as an early version of an upcoming Battletech miniature, and it was awesome!

Easily, Battletech mechs are small compared to Jaegers.

Red means 'I don't care if you see me, whatcha gonna do?'. I like the more enclosed cockpit. The Battletech version didn't have missiles in the chest panels unlike the Robotech Destroid (Excalibur???) so I can dig why the chest area is redesigned to look more like armour plate. I'm only saddened this loadout has no machine guns to punish those impudent infantry.

The unseen mechs in battletech had such resemblance to the robotech mechs that FASA could not reveal them in any way, thus some redesign had to be done, one of the is the Warhammer IIC, though in the end, we can see all these mechs today.

Oh I know about the unseen, just not sure what the IIC has to do with this. This is a regular Warhammer.

They started it off bad from the beginning when a dropship touches down and only has a single pilot. Your merc unit is one of the most powerful in the inner sphere, so that made no sense :D

The unseen will remain unseen, but there are these fan designs that modify the design. If Catalyst takes interest in this type of redesign then they can have it done too.
