Battletech - MWO Marauder by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - MWO Marauder by Shimmering-Sword

This is my submissions to an unofficial design contest over on the Mechwarrior Online forums. The objective was to redesign the Marauder heavy mech to match the MWO art style and avoid the legal similarity issues with the Macross Glaug officers pod. Mostly a refit of my existing redesign, it's hard to escape that one after painting it so many times.

 

In non battletech news, my Rangers digital art book kickstarter is still running and needs support, go check it out: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

I'm really loving this redesign, it's sad how the old Marauder as well as all the old Unseen mechs we have come to know and love were copies/rip offs of SDF Macross mechs!

I wouldn't call them rip-offs, seeing as they were legally obtained, and as such intentional. Few of them really fit in with the Battletech style anyway, so I don't see any issue with the originals being removed from the game. They just need good redesigns.

in that case ... why not just take the the Stalker model put proper arms and a sidegun on it ...

i mean come on they did it with the catapult: catapult->madcat/timberwolf->viking(?)

and it kinda looks stalker-ish to me already honestly not by hugh margin or anything but it goes in that direction ...

 

anyhow still nice work as always ...
