Unseen Moon by Shimmering-Sword Unseen Moon by Shimmering-Sword
This is the first half of an expansion to my original re-designed Marauder on a moon. Here we have a Marauder, Warhammer, and an Elephant Dropship. The 2nd half will display a Rifleman, Archer, Thunderbolt, and a Fortress Dropship. As in the original, these are Gray Death Legion mercenaries touching down on a moon. Each dropship is capable of carrying a full company of mechs and another of armor along with being heavily armed. This is a serious assault.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges lifeisinfinity.eu5.org/infinit… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

This is from the Battletech IP, so you can't use it in your own game.

Hello,

lot of thanks for answering. I understand your decision, and if I'm asking you instead of using your picture without your permission is because I respect artists and I think you have all the rights to decide if someone can use your image or not. I know that this days people just use other pictures without asking, but i don' want to be a simple burglar.

Lot of thanks for your time!!

Best regards!

Gray Death Legion Merc 1: I hear your son is on work experience today

Gray Death Legion Merc 2: Yeah mate <pauses to blow up a Jenner casually> Bob said he'd show him the ropes piloting the dropship back

Gray Death Legion Merc 1: <jokes> There goes our ride home

Gray Death Legion Merc 2: Funny. He'll be fine.


--Aboard Elephant Dropship 778--

Drop Ship Pilot Bob: So Ben, don't touch any of the controls while I go and take a shit. The launch is controlled by the auto pilot, so just sit back and enjoy the ride

<five seconds later>

Work Experience Ben: I wonder what the "Alter Rotational Vector Prematurely and Smash Into The Planet" button does

I'd like to think that it's possible to land a dropship that way in low gravity, but for a transport ship it is stupidly high G and dangerous :D

I love the moon used as a setting. So instantly iconic, so cool for the lack of gravity. I want to see a Mech do a flying kick on another. Make it happen. xD

Are you one of the guys that I've talked to in the past about a Marauder sculpt? The Mad is a bit trickier now that a variant of it is official, but that Warhammer is still wide open legal for use. If you ever do want to sculpt one of my designs I have basic 3D models for them, provided you use 3D modeling in your process.

TimFusco Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013
Not sure if we have talked or not. I think Scott in Canada is doing the Maruader. I might be able to use a 3D file...I had been using the Pepakura designs as a base, but I have a chap in Germany who can take 3D files and use them to cut plastic. Then, I assemble and detail. That is what we are doing on my Fafnir.

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ah so you do traditional sculpting then? Your Faf WIPs indicated that but I wasn't so sure. My 3D bases are close to the level of detail in your Faf base parts, at minimum they are good proportion references to ensure a tight transition from reference art to physical model.

Although I prefer the unseens... This piece is amazing, I just, am floored by your artwork. GDL were amazing, its a damn shame what happened to their company, do you play MWO? Its a damn shame what ECM did to that game, Battletech is full of heartbreaks lol. Its still my favorite series of all time.

I like ECM in MWO. I do fine in mechs with and without it. I'd much rather have a challenging and lethal MW game than one where everything is perfectly balanced and weak.
