it is hard to avoid that comparison when you have a rounded cockpit, I guess. Honestly,. I wasn't thinking Battlemaster at all. I forgot that the newer battlemaster has those gear-like shoulders too (yuck)
"it's like Geek Squad, but with more of the screaming and the dying"
Actually the feet make me think of tank treads, and now I wonder. Considering the amount of wear they would get on the bottom plates, and the good traction you get from them, would a short length of track as a "sole" for the feet that can be popped off and replaced as it wears out be a doable idea?
I'm fond of your work in general. I'm really not crazy about the Battltech aesthetic, but you do manage to make a lot of their mechs look significantly less crummy. But the more original stuff you do, the better (IMO). I know ya gotta pay the bills though...
