[[[ NOTE: Updating all renders or pictures in the gallery ]]]


Thats my definition of an Mech, based on the Madcat (Timberwolf) Design from Classic Battletech. Thats one of the latest Version of my model, made with 3Dsmax.

Now a little Update. I change the redesign the mechanic of the torsal gun and addet a few details on the mech.

Amazing. I'd love to know your workflow of how you come up with something like this. Since you said it was based off the Madcat, my thought is do you sketch it first or just open your 3D app and build feet, lefts, torso, arms, etc.  I'm relatively new to actual creating models using C4D. Again, great work. (Would love to see this chrome)

Fantastic work! Not only does it look very modern (though not overly, like sci-fi alien like, modern) but actually much more sturdy than the original Timberwolf. Original always gave me the impression like one shot to any of the joints will insta-blow it off. Not to mention heavily oversized cockpit. Here it is fairly small, but looks like it offers good vision around (which is not a surprise since it's clearly based off today's fighter jets/choppers).

Thanks for your comment. That's a very old one. Would be better to overhaul the design again. But I'm lucky you like that one.

Its my own interpretation of the old Timberwolf.

Hmmm, I should make a Update for this.

To me it looks like it carries a heavy array of ballistic and missile weaponary.

If those are heat exhuast vents near the cockpit, I forsee some problems with ejection. If a mech starts expelling dangerous amounts of heat, there's going to be some thermal expansion in that area, and thus ejection becomes an issue when the pod is physcially trapped in the casing.

Otherwise though, it looks like you applied a PERFECT Retro/Progressive model to the Madcat. I'd probably have made the missile pods flatter than a protruding box, but I guess that's to fit the LRM-20's.

Thanks for your comment! The idea was to improve the heatsinks with a slot for fresh air and you also need a APU to start the reactor and they need a compressor. You see, thats not a exhuast.

:iconeonaiariasovai:
EonaiAriaSovai Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010
Intuitive.

Why is an APU required, though? Heck; what's an APU?

My main objection to a secondary requirement for starting a reactor is the need for redundancy systems should the main method for starting it fail.

APU = Auxilary Power Unit. Aircrafts use this to start the engines.

To be honest, it looks a lot like what the Mano Domini would have done if they were developing the Timberwolf. If you've seen their Celestial-series WOB 'Mechs lately, there's a strong resemblance.

Celestial Series? Ive googled a little bit about that. Seems like a Table Top variant with new Mech configurations. Thats all what i found on my speed search. It would be interesting to see some pictures to know what you mean.

this is a very beautifull model the detail is seriously intence :D you should deffinatly add a matterial to this bad boy
anyway can i ask what is the poly count on a monster like this
and 2 what method did you use to model it???

:iconexizt:
exizt Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have a few textures for this mech, but i have no idea how to use it. I think, if i had no idea or concept for a picture with the mech, i dont want to texture that machine.

Polycount? Pfff.... i think it was somthing around 500k. Thats why in former times i dosnt know how to work effective with a 3D programm. The most part of the model was created with simply box modelling.

Holy crap. There's so many awesome new aspects to this variant.

Namely the longbow helicopter-like radar/sensor on the nose and the closing missile racks.
