It's a Mad Dog MkII. I built it in about 20 hours, and it's about 80% technic and 20% system pieces. The model is scaled to be 12 m tall in relation to a 1.4m tall lego figure and has all points of articulation except the ankles (for various reasons). All weapons are visible; 2x LRM 15 in r/l torso, 2x Lg pulse lasers, one per arm, 4x medium pulse lasers, 1 per arm, 2 in the chin-turret. This design would have some overheating problems because of the additional two lasers, but the reduction to LRM15s from LRM20s would help at least a bit and improve longevity.
Unfortunately, the Mad Dog design is such that it cannot stand on its own because of weight distribution. This is Battletech's fault, not mine. It can crouch just fine next to its mechwarrior, though.
I intend to do a rebuild with better coloring and improvement on some parts of design, along with moving a few pieces and proportions around. Chances are I'll go for a Ghost Bear color scheme, mainly because CGB loves these things. The rebuild isn't happening for a while, though.

The exact model design is however created by me.
EDIT: Wanted to mention, I hit a brick wall (pun intended) when it came to the rocket/laser tips. I flat-out don't have enough of any color to do them all, so it came out as this awful blotchy pattern. It's better than no rockets, though.
This was my first pair of fully scaled gauntlets, and extra long at 12 inches instead of the usual 6 or 9! The palm is left scale free for holding stuff. but the rest is completely scaled, so it takes around twice as many scales to make this as it does to make a standard pair of long gloves - nearly 800! It was great fun to make and I love the scaly feel so when I eventually get round to deciding on what my perfect pair will look like I'm going to be making myself some all-round gloves as well

Two of my most recent orders, the bronze pair is already sold but the rainbow one is still possibly on sale if you're interested the rainbow one has sold too! Feel free to request a similar design again though, I love rainbow gloves ^^

For reference these are two regular length gauntlets, the rainbow one in medium womans size and the bronze in medium mans. PLEASE NOTE: Bronze is currently out of stock with my supplier and I can't get any right now D: noooooooo...
My favourite thing about these gloves are the noise they make when you stroke the scales... but I also love how fun they are to make, how many different designs are possible and how comfy and warm they are due to an entirely knitted base covering the hand into which scales are incorporated in a way which they do not make skin contact so there's nothing cold or scratchy They're also knitted directly into the fabric so they can't fall off unless you pull them so hard you sever the material itself!
Not my best picture quality due to trying to take a photo of both my hands at once
A pysanka (Ukrainian: писанка, plural: pysanky) is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.
I LOVED this pattern my latest completed commission, and another pair with a new pattern are also on the way to another customer.
Want a pair of your own design? Now available as a fully customisable order on Etsy! Check it out! You can also order your own custom pair and find out even more information at CraftyMutt's Scale Mail.
If you're interested in learning how to make something like this yourself I'm building up a Make-Your-Own Scaly Knitting Guide which I will keep adding to as I find out what's needed, so please ask any questions and give feedback about what to include! Keep in mind though I intend to sell a glove pattern, so I won't post that up - mostly information on materials, techniques and such for people to develop their own ideas ^_^
Gloves go for £15-£24 (~$25-$40) +p&p a pair, depending on the request
The trio is complete! And to the sound of Princes of the Universe, no less. (Thanks computer!)
They're not perfect but they're done. There were a few stupid mistakes I made with each of them but it's a learning exercise. Not sure who to make next but I'll be taking a quick break to complete a commission. Maybe when I'm done I'll have another crack at the A-Team!
For a long time our fans have been watching our wooden sage medallion plaques on our Facebook group, but we have been unable to offer them to people on a global scale. So! With the advent of our new laser cutter, we can finally have an incredibly gorgeous laser cut version!
Each Sage Temple Plaque comes with six perfectly cut decagon slots to house each of the Sage Medallions as seen in the Sage Temple, and in the Ocarina of Time menu system. To finish it off, a golden trim was added along with a beautiful Golden Triforce in the middle.
