Battletech - Singapore by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Singapore by Shimmering-Sword
My newest Battletech work for Catalyst Game Labs, an interior illustration for Liberation of Terra II.
Two Starslayers hunt down a Cestus in the city streets of Singapore as the Star Leagues 250th Battlemech Division pushes out the 19th Amaris Dragoons.

If I had more time for this assignment I would have liked to do a more extensive redesign on the mechs, especially the Cestus, but time was short. I chose mechs that deserved a bit of spotlight and while derpy could be easily fixed. Starslayers are pretty cool when you chop of their silly armpit thighs and balance their torso.

I have loved the Starslayer ever since MCII, and you do a good mech a great deal of justice in this picture!  Well done!

Starslayer is an awesome mech, I have two of those bad boys in my mercenary company. And I never realised the Cestus was a Starleague design.

They're pretty cool mechs when you remove some of the derp :D

When I was reading the book, I thought to myself: "I know the style!" Well done! always. The book is very interesting and worth a recommendation. Especially the topic about the European Theatre landings.
Keep it on! And I hope we are going to see more of your work in CGL books. :D

I am impressed with your black/white/shades of grey work. You did a fine job of tweaking the Starslayer, and the scene is one of action without being too busy. Furthermore, I have been to Singapore many times and those buildings are spot-on! Good work, Anthony.

The lack of busyness is in part due to my tight time schedule. If I had more time I would have liked to detail the city more.

Great choice! The Cestus surely deserved some more spotlight and the Starslayer too. Looking great, especially in some action.
