Battletech - Technical Readout 3145 by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Technical Readout 3145 by Shimmering-Sword
Here's the final piece I painted for the 3145 line of Battletech books, the print TRO cover.

A continuation of the scene on the Field Manual cover, the Republic's defense of the starport continues into the night as forces withdraw. A Clan Wolf Warwolf foolishly closes with an Ares tripod only to receive a punch that tears out it's side. Simian Battle Armor swarm the Warwolf to ensure it stays down. A Night Stalker medium mech rushes in to aid in holding the defensive line.

I think those Battle Armor are a bit too eager. I mean, the Mech is kinda falling over at the moment...

Why not wait for it to hit the ground, then murder the pilot?

And why are the BAs shooting red beams? The other pic seems to have them shooting blue. Unless I'm completely wrong in that these two are related:

That thing look like it just screams "Get out of my way!"

And I would.

I like the idea of a Tripod mech. more stability than bipedal, yet a bit more mobility than your Kodiak heavy mech. mind you Kodiak just looks absolutely dominating... great work as per usual.

The Ares is a Colossal Class Battle Mech, it's bigger than an atlas, it requires and extra leg to support it and keep it mobile, it requires 3 pilots to operate it too, and it the sight of it inspires joy-joy feelings in me

Is the Ares a super-heavy battlemech?(100+tons) because I thought those were, like, crazy rare and crazy tough
