Battletech - TRO 3145 Mercenaries by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - TRO 3145 Mercenaries by Shimmering-Sword
Technical Readout 3145: Mercenaries was released a few days ago alongside Era Report 3145, which was quite a surprise as there was no advance announcement for it. Matt Plog handled all the interior art, which he did a great job on, there's even a baby power armor Marauder in there :D
My part was handling the cover art, and while I've done a BT cover before, this time I knew it ahead of time so I made sure to put in the extra effort.

A Wolf's Dragoons Mad Cat mkIV and Vulture mkIV rush out of the city they're defending to engage the enemy. The pair are armed with a mixture of ER Particle Projector Cannons, Streak Short Range Missiles, Small Pulse Lasers, and an Ultra Auto Cannon.

Hnnng, Madcat :heart:
My little brother always wondered why I chose it over something like Atlas or some heavy assault mech.
When I had 700+ kills in Grinder, I think he figured out why! (I would have kept on going if I didn't have to leave at that point!) XD
Oh the good old days.
You do the battle mechs great justice with your art, very awesome!!!

Yeah, it was no doubt the best xbox live game at the time. As soon as Halo 2 released it was all over though.

I think your a little off the mark, it is the other way around. These mechs have been a round from almost the beginning of mech games.

Titanfall is just a mix of MA2, COD, and the epicness of Halo on steroids.

You might want to look at more mechs then, I'm having trouble trying to think of another matchup that is more unlike each other than battlemechs and titans. Maybe you can tell me what looks similar on them? Because I'm not seeing a single feature that they have in common.

Also like Lune said, Battletech is 30 years old, so you'd be better off going to tell the Titanfall fans that their upcoming game looks like Battletech :P
