First off (here we go again) check out my Rangers Project kickstarter! www.kickstarter.com/projects/1… It's getting close to funded but needs that last push to make it.
Now back to the art. This was commissioned by someone over on the Battletech General threads in 4chan's traditional games board. A rather quick piece, so it's not as clean and detailed as my typical work.
A Mad Cat III and a Thunder Fox (both 55 ton medium mechs) of the Lyrian Commonwealth Jaegers are returning to base after a raid against enemy forces (likely Jade Falcon). They're fairly beat up, but their targets fared worse. A departure from the typical Jaegers half checkerboard pattern, this pair are marked with dazzle stripes.
Eh, it'll buff out.
Loving the cockpit detail on the Mad Cat. I've seen a few Mech renders which have the pilot's head & shoulders right up in the bow of the cockpit... forgetting the little problem of where the poor guy's legs are meant to go!
The other aspect I really like here is the different types of battle damage the two Mechs are showing. The cannon-shell craters contrast with the smashed forearm pod on the Mad Cat...
Until I saw Thunder Fox right now. Heck, I would love to see those in the Mech Warriors PC games.
