Nice....I really like the one with the lance arm and the shield. Could be using the the sword as well. He has a bit of a regal/knight look to him anyways, and the big holy shield really adds to that.

Cheers guys, input much appreciated, although with no regular net access Im kinda of a day ahead in concepting by the time I get the input. On this occasion I think most of you will be pleased as the direction Ive gone as tended to agree with your comments.

BiG ToE-3DT - Big Gun - Yup! I thought that too - although Ive opted for working on a gun like the bird guy from Farscape - where the Lance/Sword opens to reveal a BFG. When closed outlet nossles around the hilt are good for close combat shooting.

redonix - Soz mate but I think the shield is going to be a forearm mounted buckler or its gone the way of the dodo. I kind of think of the guy ( tentatively named Herne or maybe LUG, ), as having Sigma level force shields for defense. But we will see.

Warlock - Hi, yup I think thats kinda where the head is headed.

Agent X - cheers man, hope the model stays true, although Ive already got some changes in mind.

Hulahuga - thats an understatement, but Ive born it in mind and hopefully things will start to flow a bit more naturally.

Puckducker - dang you got me rethinking my rethink on the shield. Sword - Im kinda thinking gladus/machete but as a sheathed weapon.

Well I have some more concepts to get feedback to be posted Wed PM GMT, in the meantime Im gonna goto Max and start getting the structure modelled.

All the best and sorry I havent had time to check on anyone elses work as yet (I loath not having the net grrr.)

I like the second one; the shield/spear combo is rad. Anything with a shield is a cool idea for a robot to have; they're usually not very defense minded But it definitely gives off a feeling of a classic warrior archetype, like a knight

Thanks Vinsanity - the shield does seem to be popular so I might have to incorporate on back into the design.

For now here is the roughed out background story to what is tentatively named 'Herne' for now. Input greately appreciated, some names and places may change but I think this is kinda the direction the story goes.

Update - Ive taken the layout as far as Im going to for now and have started thinking about the Lance/Gun in closeup. Also started to give the textures some thought - thinking Black and Silver fillgree work for now.



Started the modelling last night and should be able to post some early stuff Sat/Sunday.

Crits n comments always welcome.

you could cut a part of the sixth part.

Also some words don't really fit in.

Hi everyone, after a weekend break Ive decided to change direction somewhat to a more contemporary Mech rather than my original retro thing ( I will make that as a personal project after the war though).

Background still stands, hes still a Warmachine and the celtic thing is still important hence the name being Cerrunos/Herne. Big plans in mind for the weapon with hopefully a nice twist in the tail.

New sils and some early work shots to follow.







C n C welcome.
