Vulture Mech Sketch by Mecha-Zone Vulture Mech Sketch by Mecha-Zone
A level 1 sketch commissioned by a fan of the Battletech Vulture mech. I added a bit of my own flair to it so it looks a little different than usual.

That's an interesting take on the Mad Dog. I'm guessing it focuses more on direct fire weaponry, judging by the seriously reduced missile racks?

hmm.. a 3140's era Vulture mk-II, with what looks like IS Thunderbolt missiles instead of regular LRM's.. could be a fun mixed-tech config..
(mk-II is the MW4 appearance.. canonically it is supposed to be the result of Clan GhostBear's new factories in the IS redoing the design to be easier to produce.. though the chin lasers remain non-canon/custom config until the more advanced Vulture Mk-III follow on..)

I love how you've maintained the 'classic' look with a slightly more modern, almost mass effect-ish look
The Shadings also really great, I'm just loving this piece of awesomeness

I guess it's, like... a 2x LRM5, 2 CLPL, 1 CMPL, 1 Flamer?

Man, when the Vulture's missile pods get moved it becomes really easy to see how weird the CT looks as an independent shape. This also happens when people kitbash/convert their Vulture minis to the C config.

(I'm reminded of your MW4 Arctic Wolf, too!)

Good design, but I prefer the missiles beside the body.

Whoa... It's only now, after seeing your work, that I realized that the Vulture's cockpit is on top of the entire thing. I long thought it was in the "bridge" of its "nose". :-O

I've always loved the design of the vulture, true to its name, its the quintessential chicken walker :)

THIS is what I like to see when I think about Battletech. Very nice psuedo-redesign of a classic 'mech with a style that adds to the 'mech's presence instead of subtracting from it; I dig it :D

I always think it should have on a big pair of thick-rimmed glasses and a fake mustache!

Looks odd, but i like it. The Mad Dog/Vulture is a design that needs a little new interpretation, since it almost never was shown creatively since you reincarnated it for MW4. Or before...
