I've always had a soft spot for Nova Cat. I think it really looks menacing.

awesome artwork...

Also despite the pc games being abit lacking, there is always the boardgame...

Been playing it for years and continue to do so within a campaign of over a dozen people at a game store.

We'll have to see if the gameplay in MWO is any good.

Once again, another glorious piece.
I appreciate how, in spite of the updated style, it still looks venerable.

Well done.

Nice! Mech Warrior the games were actually awesome, but not as much as 4 Armor Core games. But otherwise, nicely done! }: )

Never much cared for the Orion but I like the Nova Cat's design; they both look good here. Man...now I'm feeling all nostalgic for Mechwarrior again.

Ah, the Orion. A lot of memories with that one, good ones too in Mechwarrior 3.

I don't know why, but it's off-centered body and size always appealed to me. I just wish they;d do a more up-to-date drawing of one, or especially show off one as a prototype.
