Nice. Well, you just solved a mystery and a half - had an unsourced spread of mechs since forever, recognize some silhouettes among the cthulutech. No wonder I never IDed them. Thanks!

I hear warhounds are used for scouting a lot. Every size comparison I see makes them so small compared to reavers. They must have much more impressive leg strides. I don't think the Imperium knows how to apply proper roles to its titans but then.. it never was good at warfare. I think your battletech might be a little off. The Atlas always seems to be closer in size to the direwolf and the similar warhawk when depicted in artwork. Here, it's a bully waiting to bash in the much smaller clan mechs.

I think all Imperial titans are primarily big guns. The really large ones probably bneed Jets or Antigrav to keep balance and movement with their huge, super-heavy legs, and seem more constructed as mobile fortresses than agile, fast vehicles. For this more traditional role, and true scouting by mech, the Imperium has the Knights (which I really should add to this table).

Actually the Imperators are insanely tall. In the Novels they can walk across an entire ocean while still being above water and are said to have guns that are over a kilometer long. So they're more akin to Mass Effect Reapers than BattleTechs.

Technically, the warhound would be classified as 'light' since imperial knights don't fall into the titan classification.

DirkLoechel Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2016
However, Knights are fare more mecha like mecha re usually used than Titans. Titans seem more like huge, mobile fortresses for an Arm to organize around, including long-range force projection and, in case of the Imperator, nuclear weapons.

Yeah, the titans are only deployed if there's a titan-sized threat, according to the book "Titan". The Warhound, while being a 'scout' titan with a crew of only 3 is primarily anti-armor, while the bigger ones are almost exclusively used to fight enemy titans or titan-sized monsters and/or carry troops.

Old Battle Tech fan here, the Grasshopper was a highly mobile heavy Mech, the silhouette you have looks to be the Locust.

At 65 tons an Ebon Jaguar/Cauldron Born is well within the heavy, not medium, category. A good medium Clan Omnimech, since you used a 50 ton Hunchback for the Inner Sphere, would be the 50 ton Nova/Blackhawk.

No, but his atomic breath caused a meteor to go from a planet buster to a city buster, and he took the damn thing unscathed. He survived a black hole, fell into a volcano unharmed, regenerated from a beating heart, and if he absorbs enough Super S Energy capsules, he becomes Super Godzilla, which basically makes Super Saiyans look like pussies.

I know, I was joking. Though Godzilla has definitely died many times. I bet enough Imperator-Class Titans could kill Godzilla (given the Adeptus Mechanicus wouldn't throw a hissy-fit over all the Imperators getting blown up)

I'm afraid I'll have to disagree with you on the size of the BattleMechs. The Omega www.sarna.net/wiki/Omega_(Batt…) (current largest 'Mech, period) is about eighteen meters tall, putting the Atlas and Dire Wolf/Daishi into 12-14 meter range. A Time of War gives the average 'Mech height as ten meters.

As I am completely unfamiliar with the other two groups, I will refrain from comment.

The Reave-class Titan is way too big. They're about 25-30m depending on pattern. Against a 100-ish meter Imperator-class.

I should have read the notes (couldn't see them at all on preview res)
The Imperator is far too small. Warhound slightly too small. Warlord somewhat too small.

Used Forge World's notes on the Imperator. I figured stats for an actual figure would be more accurate than the extremely varying sizes in novels (which go from 30 to 200 meters for the Imperator).

Ah. Inevitable when there's a great big multi-creator literary orgy.
And most of them are trying to out-grimdark each other. That or making Ultramarines and Cains.

Are You gonna turn this into the same awesomeness You did with the ship comparison chart? :D

If so, I have some suggestions:
- Mech Warrior Online has some splash art You can use.
- Metal Gear is a mech.
- Armored Core has a lot of em
- Starcraft's Odin, Wiking, SCV, and Thor
- All possible Gundam series?
- Hawken Mechs
- Manga/Anime has a limitless supply of these Xp
