Mecha Front - Kodiak by Shimmering-Sword Mecha Front - Kodiak by Shimmering-Sword
Here's one of the Mecha Front quad mechs, the largest unit in the game. This is the first piece of colored art I made for the game so it's a little behind the rest in terms of detail and precision. I may give it another pass later on.

The Kodiak quad mech is NorAm's premier line anchoring unit. It is slow but heavily armed and armored. It carries 2 massive cannons, an array of missiles, and 4 autocannons for defense. Alternate configurations including swapping the missiles and autocannons for quad howitzers, or an extreme all missile load out.

Only thing that could make this better for me is gatling guns! (even if they are ammo hogs) But understand you are working with in game design constraints. I like all these Mecha Front designs. I've written a few alternate history doodles myself about converting the Battletech factions and mechs to an earthbound universe (eg. Kurita and Liao in Asia, Marik and Steiner in Europe, Rasalhague in Scandinavia, etc.) but the little bit I've read about Mecha Front it seems to fit the bill for the same kind of earthbound mech war scenario.

The Mecha front mechs look amazing, do you know what's happening with the kickstarter?

There wont be a kickstarter, at least not unless he needs to do something major. For now mechs are coming out one at a time and the sales from one funds the next. So go buy em :)

probably around the size of the "omen" the colossal/super heavy mech... that's my best guess...it would make sense.

When I see a mech like this, it always takes me back to the days spent playing Chromehounds, Mech Assault and Mech Warrior...
Wonderful job once again SS.

At least we are kind of getting Mechwarrior back, hopefully it goes well enough for them to make one with a campaign.

Agreed, I miss the hours spent getting pulled into campaign and multiplayer of Mechwarrior years ago.
So here's to hoping all goes well with the new game.

Macross ain't got nothin' on an all-missile version of one of these monstrosities.

I luuuuuuurv! Mind if I create a 3D model of this?! I have lost interest in my highly complex 3D models for the moment (next couple of days) but this gave me a jolt of inspiration? Elegant, yet not complex enough to be frustrating yet maintaining a pleasant air of challenge that may keep me guessing. So can I, Please?! O pretty please?!

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
If you were to keep it for personal practice that might be ok, though you might need permission from Jon Paulson (I can ask if you want). This is because the mechs are yet to have their official 3D models created, so it may be early to have fan models floating around.

One thing I forgot to ask, is there anything special in back like a special gimbal for the missile launchers, vents, engine, or am I pretty much clear to wing it with what I can already see in front?
