Nukes or Triple Stackpole, either way, I'd like to assume that's just the pilot refusing to look at explosions, for there are more to be killed :D

Well as bend as they are on slaying all real or suspected Robes they won't care about any Blakist's feelings for sure. And didn't the Word's war on mankind teach us all to fight fire with fire^^.
Impressive colors indeed, really got this touch of "end of days".

You seem to be one of the few people that realize they're looking at a regulan mech and regulan nukes :D

Guess this makes me an average battle tech fan or^^ Well while I don't like the jihadd as such, it made for some very cool story twists and looks at the dark side of war and human thinking.
Oh and by the way, still a great artwork.

Some people loath the Celestial series, and I don't like some of them, but the Archangel was always a really awesome looking mech. Seeing this made me very happy.

While working on this I realized, this scene does make them look so very similar :D

BattleHamsterReturns Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012
That is because they are similar . They ended up up just like the Blakies . I loved it how Stone kept his hands clean and the Regulans kept nuking Blakies and innocents alike .

No i did not commit atrocities , the Republic of the Sphere is righteous , the Regulans did so all by themselves : ))) wink wink

EVERYONE loves PPCs.

Because they are made of WIN.

Cool picture, bro. You'd figure "Regulans gonna REGULATE up in this parliament, b*tch!" would be a better saying, but whatever. :XD: ;)

Seems like every mech I paint these days has PPCs, and everyone wants them firing (at first they weren't, but viewers raged)

:iconmaddog3060:
Maddog3060 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012
That's because the PPC is the coolest weapon in the game. (Yes, I am aware of the irony of that statement.)

There's just something about a giant energy cannon that shoots a bolt of fiery, burning death that reaches down into the deepest, most primordial soul of humans, and stirs the coals of our ancestral memories. A PPC is basically a piece of the sun, tuned and forged into a spear of blazing, Godlike wrath, and that fulfills a need we have not even known we had. To hurl the raw energies of the universe, to wreck havoc upon our enemies like an avatar of God's anger, this feeds the bloodthirsty parts of our soul and warms the fires of passion.

Tl:dr: PPCs are just farking awesome.

I have always loved the Celestials. You have done a great job on this one.

Also yeah, so many liberties on the fluff here. I'm alright with it in picture form, if only because you've done such a good job with it, but I might squirm a little in tabletop.

Wow! I like this one, quite a bit. Looks quite a bit less..... Celestial series, and a bit more like a clan design style. kinda looks like a Nova Cat, now that I think about it.

That's just me cutting the derp out. Celestials look cool because they look like Clan mechs when they aren't derped.

BanditFrosty Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2012
Good to hear. I always thought that the celestial series looked like it was based on the Armored Core mecha, but i didnt really think the two should mix.

To be fair, having different looks between each major faction (Star League, Clan, Inner Sphere, and WoB) does make sense.....
