Battletech - Fire Falcon by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Fire Falcon by Shimmering-Sword
Occasionally hanging out in the Rizon #Battletech channel I take requests for quick BT pieces, usually when I don't have a BT commission on standby to scratch the itch.

This time it's a Hell's Horses Fire Falcon 25ton light mech, prime variant.
Weapons:
1 Medium Pulse Laser
2 Streak SRM-4
2 ER Medium Lasers
2 ER Small Lasers

Don't be too shocked by the design matching it's weapons load :P

Very nice. I prefer this style of mech, the ones without arms. Really digging the texture on the lasers + the untextured missile pods. Also the color scheme... (RoS?) overall, awesome.

One complaint is the blur on the lower legs - I get why you did it but it looks too sudden - and kind of weird, why are only the legs blurred? - not to mention it kinda ruins your nice texture/line work D:

How long did it take you?

Hells horses, if I spent more time a flame job would make it more obvious :)
This was a quick and dirty piece so it's not the best, but I tried out the blur because it's kind of needed to give proper immersion. Focus is on the torso while the legs are moving in the frame, I find without the blurring a fast mech looks too static. Even I struggle with changing my mindset from "losing leg detail" to "they were always going to be blurred". It's the same as choosing to design a whole mech but painting it torn apart from damage.

Never heard of the Hell's Horses - not too into Battletech - so I would've missed it anyways.

I see how the blur is important but it seems like there should be a better solution. Quick and dirty though like you said. Putting the detail in pre-blur is definitely better, though.

Hells Horses are Clan. They are (among the clans) famous for their combined weapons use (Mechs with conventional tanks/vehicles). They have a feud with the ghost bears. In the novels they get only minor attention.
The Mech itself looks great, even though i donīt like the Fire Falcon.

The clans are all fashists, or, their system is. Fashist systems tend to be strong on the outside but crumble sooner or later from the instide. Nazi-Germany showed that, and they are not the only one; fashism is a philosofy of blindness (you choose to not recognize others). And they are depicted that way in the novels too.

I'd usually do clan lasers green, but playing MWO is also rubbing off on me, which is why I made the smalls red.

For a 25 ton mech that seems like a lot of weaponry shoe-horned in. Seems like it'd either have a small engine for it's size, or run incredibly hot. Either way, you'd definitely feel that one when it slugs you in the face.
