Always loved the draconis combine. And these mechs are a whole level of cool.

Anyways, nice 'Mechs! :D The environment is pretty sweet, too. B-)

I was admittedly hoping it was for Handbook: House Kurita

Goddamn I've been waiting for forever for that thing.

Funny, they look so small when compared to the crane truck and the lanterns along the path. Maybe 25 feet tops...

The lanters are pretty big. BT mechs aren't generally very large compared to other mechs like Gundam and Evangelion. I think I got the size pretty close to what it should be.

I like the changes you made to the Gladiators head. Much improved.

I would love to see it colored, be even sweeter.

what would the color scheme be for this mech? I never worry about it since I know I won't have to do color.

Taking a stab that they are on Luthien I would place them as members of the Otomo. The colors would be black with gold highlights. [link] for example.

Good to see a BT environment piece where the mechs are the right scale, not everyone cares to do that.

Thanks! I did try to get them at least close to the right size. It's tough with Battletech. My natural instinct is to make them much too large.

I would not like fighting them. Obviously great job and I really like those mechs, but my loyalty resides in the Clans.

Oh I have no doubt it is. I know that some of the artwork already looks amazing. ;)

Now if I can find a SLDF patch for my jacket I will be a happy camper. I have been looking for one for years. :)

Gundams silly. its a joke.

my buddy loves Mech warrior and foams at the mouth whenever i mention gundams. while i respect that Mech warrior is 10x more believable then gundam mechs, i still find it funny that he'd be so vengful and hardheaded about thinking that any military worth its budgetary salt would use mechs.

ahhhh, gotcha. I agree that mechs are pure fantasy as far as military applications. Fortunately, I am able to enjoy pretty much every mecha genre.
