Mech Warrior - Spider by Shimmering-Sword Mech Warrior - Spider by Shimmering-Sword
I was skeptic going into this one, the Spider is a funky design. With some planning and luck I pulled it off though, with minimal cosmetic changes too :D
Was good times during the stream too, thanks to everyone who showed up.

Very nicely done. The changes from the original artwork are all improvements, especially the head and backpack.

Whoa! Just realized the mistake I made here. Matt Plog is old school BT, nowhere near new. I meant Eric Ou, so sorry for any confusion.

I think so. I'm still pretty new. The MechWarrior 4 stuff was all done through Microsoft and Fasa so I didn't have any contact with Catalyst until about a year ago.

Spider, wow little obscure there no? I still remember having on Punt kick a atlas in the head, *sigh* goods times that, good times. Ah, anyway it's nice wish the people doing the lost tech updates stuck as close to the originals as you have *shrugs* oh, well, probably break a settlement anyway.

one of my favorite mechs to modify

upgrading to full clan tech makes this awesome! :D

lol what, like a new frame and 2 ER-MLas? Something even more expensive to kill with one shot :D
Naw, what do you fit it with?

:iconstraycat-74:
straycat-74 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010
well... Endo steel chassis, ferrofiberous armor (more than it had originally), 4 medium pulse lasers linked to a targeting computer, XL-engine (with faster walk-run-jump) (Oh, I think I dropped it down 5 tons as well.)

and if I remember I stuck a streak 4-pack in there as well.

at one point I made a LAM version, but mostly Lams have been phased out because of the Harmony Gold problem

my mine pleasure was taking as close to the original design, making it tougher, usually faster, and give it more punch. I didn't often change the weight.

Like the Locust. I had the "Innersphere upgrade to clan tech" 20ton version, and then I had the Locust IIC 25 or 30 ton version redone closer to the original Locust layout.

not everywhere, 2 each in rt/lt, tc either in head or ct depending on how you like to layout your toys.

I usually... I should sat USED to try and keep somewhat to the original design, just upgraded.
