Battletech: Ironhold by Mecha-Zone Battletech: Ironhold by Mecha-Zone
This is my original visual design. Stats and back story by someone else.

It is an assault battle armor, not a full-sized mech.

Created for Catalyst Games book, "Battletech: Technical Readout 3085"

thanks! there's even an official metal miniature for it. It is really small though and doesn't have a lot of detail :(

While it does look well-armed, I just can't get the image of a fat man dressed in poorly-fitting knight's armor out of my head.

I would give all of my money to use this instead of a car.

Nice work bro! For some reason I'm picturing the guy from Marathon using this.

Oh and when you say battle armor, do you mean like Elemental Class or light mech class?

Seriously, I'd rock that suit. Needs Autocannons on the arms for my personal tastes but other than that, ROCK IT!

So where does the person sits in it and how is he situated? :3

it's too hard to describe with words, but a person does fit in there. The suit is still very large, like the same mass as a van, so there is plenty of room.

So it's not "These appendages are in the legs of the suit, and these are in the arms." etc? Not like Marine Powered Armor, I assume?

yeah, this thing is more like a mini-mech. There are armors that are more like suites but this one is the uber bad-ass of the class. At least that's my understanding of it. I'm no expert... I just like to draw robots (not into reading all the history and stats)

I guess you gotta be a pretty bulky guy to fit in there.

He would be, as the guys who operate this suit are effectively 8+ foot tall musclemen.
