Battletech Mecha part 4 by Mecha-Zone Battletech Mecha part 4 by Mecha-Zone
The Griffin 5S

I had a good time drawing this mech, but it will probably be my last bit of work for this project due to my schedule. I just started working on another Hot Wheels book so I have very little time for anything else right now.

Visit the designers blog for updates on the TRO project...

There is just something to love when you see a mech with a 'Rifle'. It might be my love of Macross might have something do with it.

Just want I except from some one with such skills.

I have to wonder sometimes about hand-held weapons for Battlemechs and how they are represented in the boardgame. The rules book Maximum Tech gives rules to allow players to construct hand-held weapons for thier machines (ie self contained weapons that can be used via the hand actuators).

So what does that mean for many of the designs illustrated holding guns? Would they be allowed to drop them or are they somehow welded to the design?

Did my own take on this as well. Mounted the PPC to the arm and put the missiles in a box: [link]

I don't play Battletech so I rely on the art director and designers to guide me when it comes to things like this. In other words, I don't know the rules for hand-held weapons.

Is this from the battletech universe,because from what I gathered from Mechwarrior,No mechs have actuall weapons you can grab,besides melee weapons.

No hand held weapons in MechWarrior, but there are hand held weapons in Battletech, I think.

WizKids only did the Mechwarrior dark ages game, but they are gone now. Catalyst Games handles the Battletech books that are more "traditional".

Oh I see,Wizkids did dark age throught the solaris VII packs,including all the booster packs and such,but then quit?
Another thing,catalyst games only has pdf's I think,which sucks,so Im just buying all the traditional battletech technical readouts and such at amazon.

My roommate was playing the first one back in college. I never played it though. I remember researching Mech2 Mercs when we were starting Mech4 Mercs and it was PAINFUL to see the old graphics. Now I feel that way when I see the Mech4 graphics XD

Thanks, but I can't take all the credit. My design is heavily based off of this drawing... [link]

The rifle seems to be attached to the right hand, but the rifle seems can be folded?

anyway hate to see you leave, but hope you'll come back soon

Well, I'm not leaving dA, I just won't be working on that particular project.

As for the gun, it is attached to the hand. I figured the stock could fold for when the mech is on the move in a tight space to allow more range of motion and a diverse set of firing positions such as against the chest..

You know, I used to be a chicken leg hater, but I gained some appreciation for them when I worked on MW4: BK. I have some (hopefully cool) ideas for some Chicken walker mechs that may redefine the way people think of those things. Then again, I might just make some really stupid looking mechs :/

Thanks! Sometimes it is best to keep things simple. There may be a lot of line work in this piece but the pose and camera angle are very straight forward. The addition of some bold shadows helps add gravity.
