No way, those legs are just right.

Whoa. I'd say if you're in front of this monster in a mech under 80 tons you better hope your mech has the speed to get out from in front of it in a hurry. Make that a big hurry. Just the guns alone . . . looks like a heavy gauss rifle, a ER PPC and a couple of underslung ER lasers? I haven't seen the stats but . . . I mean, ouch.

Yeah, many apologies, that came off Snarkier than intended. I was really proud of the design, but, you pushed it into awesomeness with an incredible drawing. If anything I'm grateful sir, not jealous at all. I can only hope I get lucky enough to have you draw stuff I work on in the future.

Well, you may have drawn it, but _I_ wrote and designed it. Let's not insult the writer hmm:)? And yes, there are stats for it, and its variants in TRO: 3085. BTW this IS original art, I had nothing to do with how it looked.

by the way, I did edit the description so no one will think I designed the stats or wrote it.

It's a sad day if you are insulted by this. Deviant Art is an art site so of course I am talking about the art. I drew the original rough sketch without any input from anyone, including you. Then I made the final art with a provided list of weapons and the guns on the arms were the only real change. So yes, I DID design this mech visually and I don't think anyone else deserves to share that credit.

The stats and back story are undeniably very important to the players. The design for the play mechanics is completely separate and is not something that I take any credit for nor is it a topic I care to discuss.

Love the hull lines of the torso, but the center of mass seems a bit high. Like a good hit from an M-guass would tumble it.

Very wicked, though.

I just got my copy of TRO: 3085 ... and I would've preferred if they kept you and three other artists to do the book. Some of the art was sub-par...but all of your stuff, as always, is great.

And it just so happens the Bruin is my current ride in a CBT campaign. I plan on kitbashing a couple of minis to make one. :) all hail the Ghost Bear Dominion ... and your art!
