Mecha Front - Blackfrost Medium by Shimmering-Sword Mecha Front - Blackfrost Medium by Shimmering-Sword
Here's the first of two color pieces I have to show for the Blackfrost mercenary company, which is contracted to work for CanOil. Blackfrost mechs tend to stray from the norms of their weight classes. They also feature no cockpit glass, using only cameras and sensors. As yet each mech is unnamed.

The Blackfrost medium mech carries heavy armor at the cost of firepower. Standard load out is an autocannon and missile launchers. Alternate variants swap in rail guns, sniper cannons, gatling guns, there is even an optional chin turret.

i like it better when mechs have chassis designs that can re-equipped with any weapon.a real-life example would be the stryker vehicle.

Yet a lot of military personell say the stryker is a faliure that they're forced to work with (not a bad vehicle on the surface, but not at all what they ordered). I do like modularity too.

I'm so sorry. I am seeing some definite inspiration from the REX here though, as well as your own Lynx. Great design, especially the usage of cameras rather than cockpit glass. How mobile is this thing, by the way?

The Blackfrost mechs are styled like rex, some factions will have themes like that. Different enough to be legally unique though :)

I don't know how quick mechs move in this game.

I think it's a good design choice. It's such a brutish, broad design, great for stompin' on the wee babby mechs. 
Anyway, great work.
