DWIV - 3D - Steamtrooper - Cernunnos

Hi all, after some soul searching Ive opted for 'Machine' - 'War-Machine' as my hero, Ive been gagging to do a mech for ages but never had the excuse, so here we go.

Basically Im going for mecha meets Knights Templar/Celtic hero such as C˙chulainn / Lugh, to this end, the next stage will be tightening up the overall look and trying out some options for a Spear/Lance/Gun. Aside from that I may still push in a Norse direction and give the gun a Mj÷llnir vibe, its all still a bit in the air so I better get back to work and see where this goes.

OK this is the new direction - crits welcome

[UPDATE-18 May - base WIP]

the only thing that doesn't seem to fit is that missile box. Cool design - celtic mech sounds awesome.

Great concepts! Reminds me of gundams, and they totally kick ass!

I agree with the above though. Everything merges greatly except for the missile box. Just doesn't fit the flow of the rest of the character.

hey man was wondering if you were gonna enter this year the celtic or norse vibe for a robot is a great idea, and wll be unique I'm sure! as for the designs. I think the middle top row one has the most fluid dynamic. I like the idea of the '3rd' arm but in almost makes the whole thing seem more unweildy.

great job on the cencepts and look forward to seeing you develop in those celtic themes

I'm liking 3 and 5 in the top row. Both have nice shapes. I think the large shoulder pad on its left shoulder in #3 works because it gives your eyes a place to rest in an otherwise very busy design.

Just credit Studio Nue, the company responsible for these Battletech redesigns.
This one in particular is the BLR - 1G Battlemaster, done for the first Japanese edition of the game, our second edition at the time.
All the new designs were badarsed.
Good choice, I look forward to your interpretation.

p.s sorry sizes are over 3DT limit but after a night of no sleep and no confirmation on 2 months work I havent got energy to rejigg them for this forum right now.


Cheers everyone, Im still playing with the loadout for the most part but have started to think about the celtic side of things a bit, I did intend to upload my second concept sheet but when I got to my local wireless pub my external hardrive had mysteriously lost all my updates so Im off home to find out where they slipped off to.

Ive taken onboard the missile pod comments and removed that from most of the next designs, and also tried to create a more balanced look, although I realy intend this to be a very asymetrical design so expect the gun arm/hammer arm to stay in there.

Should be back to update in a little while.

I'm liking the bottom big one's saw, but I also thing he needs a big gun too. Maybe make the saw a hand held item, then he can use his free hand to slice and dice chumps that are close up, while still blasting fools that are further away.

I'm liking the 3rd one in the second row, with the shield and the saw. I think I might like the head on the middle on in the second row as well. Cool stuff for sure.
