Battletech - Kharon by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Kharon by Shimmering-Sword
Another commission for :iconmr-balk: ~mr-balk. Stepped up from the usual single mech commission, I had fun applying what I'm learning from this overload of battletech work lately :D (and more to come)

A Society Kharon 70 ton heavy mech stomps forward laying into an Oro tank. An Osteon and Cephalus are supporting.
Kharon loadout:
1 Improved Heavy Large Laser
1 Extended Range Large Laser
1 Improved Advanced Tactical Missile 12 Launcher
1 Medium Pulse Laser
1 Extended Range Small Laser
Nova CEWS and a Targeting Computer

Lao Hu redesign of what would be a Society mech. Both Large Lasers in the right arm with the Heavy on top and the ER on the bottom. Med Pulse (closer to the body/gold beam) and ER Small in the left arm. iATM 12 in the left torso with at least 3 tons of ammo for both longevity and flexibility and either a CASE or CASE II to protect from ammo explosion. Guessing the electronics are in the right torso. Going to guess an XL engine, leaning towards a 280 size to fit the necessary to supply both the necessary armor and heat sinks to keep the mech going in battle, though I won't rule out a 350 engine.
Now that the clinical commentary is out of the way, a very impressive looking mech and flexible weapons loadout. Only way I could see it being more flexible is if it included Jump Jets. Nice job adding cannon mechs in the background, gives it a more authentic feel.

Big one is the Osteon, sarana could help you there.

Why start a second battletech group though? The Mech Warriors the-mech-warriors.deviantart.c… has everything covered.

Though none of the mechs in this particular piece are my own designs, and all have minis already, I do enjoy people taking a crack at my stuff :)

Man, I love seeing David's Society `Mechs in action. You're already sick to death of hearing the obvious kitbash comments from /btg/, so lemme just say how fond I am of seeing irregular and unconventional weapon arrangements on BattleMechs.

Ha ha, awesome mech- I love the blue lasers!! :la: Pew!! Pew!! Rather puny compared to the civvie construction mechs in the SF book I'm reading right now (Stanislaw Lem's Fiasco), though- the main character ends up vitrifying himself to survive being stranded beyond hope of immediate rescue on Titan. He crashed a 1,680 ton mech that towered over 8 stories tall. :D And it was powered by a 17 megawatt nuclear reactor. Now that is a mech.

The Bagger 288 is an extremely impressive machine, but it doesn't really compare as it isn't a mecha and doesn't have to walk around on two legs. :D Using bipedal motion instead of caterpillar tracks will certainly impose some limits on the size of your machine due to the reduced surface area of the feet (as compared to caterpillar tracks) and the forces involved in walking- damn, and I wanted to wrestle Cthulhu in a mech taller than the Empire State Building... XD
