Seriously; I am in love with the effects you managed to pull off on the explosions in the background. It's gorgeous..And I really like the sheen you apply to all of the metal parts in your images.
Really makes the image pop out at you, and makes your coloring style quite defining.
Looking forward to moar..! :la:

Well, no campaigns, but we have MWO and Hawken coming up. Steel Battalion 2 will suck, Armored Core V might be ok, but doesn't look that good.

They're making a new MechWarrior game, MechWarrior Online - not much info is available about it besides it being online only, operating similar to World Of Tanks, and the concept art for some of the mechs.

There's also the Crysis Wars mod, MechWarrior Living Legends.

Shows how lacking most cockpits usually are if everyone keeps bringing up my little cockpit details. They aren't even that hard to put in there :D

At least you know what people like to see in your mechs! Sure the battlefield looks interesting, and the missiles firing is awesome looking, the battle damage looks cool, but holy cow at the cockpit, it looks like it'd be awesome to be in, halo displays everywhere, or so it looks to me.

I prefer a more minimal blocky mech over some of the silly official designs out there, I didn't think it was bad, I definitely have to work with much worse at times. This guy commissions a specialist painter to finish of his minis and I tell you man, simple mech or no, that guy does very impressive wear and tear on them. Some of the best BT minis I've seen.
