Since I'm still 'round hya might as well tell some fishing stories and post some mechs.

A few renders of some mwll and some that I have been working on. Too many MWLL vs MWO debate so a few of these should break the tension :)

Anyway, from concept to creation dooshi.

Found it kind of difficult to work on and never was honestly happy with it bit it was basic idea not to look like boing having sex with cardboard box and give it some mean features.

Early concept that I made based on widowmaker. No talent for drawing so I got to the modeling stage... It was not supposed to be in game except KingLeer had it as an idea on paper since it would share legs with masakari. At one point, I asked FD to do a repaint/redraw of early renders of both masakari and daishi but we didn't seem to get around to do so, he was working on new hud and enterior parts (witch were never completed, and gone since defenders "great purge").



We had a heated debate for the number of toes... Since the legs were modeled out as "offset" 3 toes didn't look right in my opinion. Standard CBT daishi legs also didn't fit as much as I would like them to have on this torso. Finally we agreed that it would be good with 4 toes.

Final highpoly looked similar to this.



And finally we got the textured resoult later on.



After some time we had a debate on release date since we heard and later confermend some grim rumors regarding LL, we decided to speed up release and production of all models in pipeline. Originally, model was supposed to be worked on and more detailed and released later quarter of 2012. It had lower priority than battlearmors in early development.

Been thinking of modeling out hangar and some workers and than posing in greater detail models in some more "real mechtastic environment"... If I ever get around to it ill post it here but only when its sexy enough  :)

Badass Gnome by Ghogiel, lanner by yours truly. It was completed, we never got the code for BA selection complete. Player would start as a Light BA (was in pipeline) and the could select to buy one of 2 clases (med/heavy).

Lightning is crappy Ill setup a better scene in future.

Good God, that Gnome looks fantastic.
Quite a shame those BAs never got to be in-game. :'(

That Lanner looks awesome!

Just curious, were BA LRMs (i.e. LRM-1, LRM-3, Rocket Launchers) ever planned?

Not sure, I THINK i saw it at one moment... Somebody was tinkering with it but in all honesty, who and why, cant really remember. Imagine 5-6 BA's launching LRM's and you cant see them on radar.. That would be helluva annoying. On the other hand, handheld rawketlauncher was mentioned as a light BA/pilot weapon, since he would have no "built-in" SRM like rest of dedicated ba.

As far as range attack goes we had KingDavid model attached on Phalanx. Model was done and textured, and all that was left for it is to be rigged and imported.

Interesting!

Please tell more stories, and show more pics!  ;)

Thanks, just messing around with renders and lightning. Nothing too big, when I prepare scenes with more detail and stuff ill post more renders. Wanted to pose Fafnir and Phalanx for next one.
