Rarity's Mech


:iconmlpoctaviaplz::iconsaysplz:Thank you all for coming today to Granny Smith’s farm for this, irregular and rather large recital.
:iconmlpoctaviaplz::iconsaysplz:The exhibition ballet will be performed by Rarity and her accompanying mecha, the Mini-Vex.
:iconsweetiebelle-fim::iconsaysplz:That’s my sister!
:iconscootalooplz::iconapplebloomplz::iconsaysplz:We know!
:iconoctaviaangryplz::iconsaysplz: Erhmmm! Thank you ladies..
:iconmlpoctaviaplz::iconsaysplz:For the technically inclined, this routine is made possible by the Nervatic relays connected to Rarity’s Sensory Suit. In conjunction with this, neural scans continually transmit information to the mecha for instantaneous reactions.
:iconoctaviaclapplz::iconsaysplz:Without further ado, please enjoy this unique rendition of Swan Lake. **Music starts**

Been so horribly busy at work. Finally get a weekend off to rest up... Have some speedily created ponies and mecha.... (And this is what I classify as a 'Turret mech' in the game I'm building.... Slowly)
Mecha is the only reason I'd go and see ballet...

I like to imagine the ponies use these mechs to kill any dumb human soldiers who try to invade Equestria :lol:

You know, for some reason, I always pictured Rarity in a Crab:

Pity it's only 50 tons and its loadout seems a bit...anemic.

Does it kill people by making them laugh to death? :) ....That....shape.....
Vrekandis's avatar
Hey, I was hard-pressed to drag a "Rarity vs. Giant Crab" joke out of that--not my fault that the only battlemech called a Crab kinda blows chunks ^^;  We work with the raw materials we're given, after all...

:iconprincesslunaummplz::iconsaysplz:Thy things we would do to that mech's shape..... Thy indescribable things...

That's Rarity's mecha?  I would have expected her's to be more stylized and less cube-ish.

What do you mean? It has a bow painted on it.
Omnifighter1's avatar
Two little ribbons?  A few good blasts and those'll melt/burn right off.  Not to mention they're barley noticeable.  I literally had to be looking for them to find them.
TheCrimsonBrony's avatar
Did you notice it says Twinkle Toes on the mech's foot? I sure as hell didn't.

Wow!  Eagle eye. :D

As remarked by a previous commenter, the torso-mounted HVAC/2s are indeed unwieldy- while they have an effective range of about a kilometer, they don't do a whole lot of damage, and they're useless if a target gets within 100m. The HAG-30s also have a minimum range, though slightly shorter, though I suspect that both of these limits suit Rarity just fine- the cut and thrust of a close-range mech brawl just isn't elegant, dahling. Plus, that's what lancemates are there for.

hmm.... so, is this one a... assault gun of some sort? Those torso-mounted long guns must be unwieldy... 

The top ones look like they can be used as artillery, but the bottom ones... er... unless, of course, the bottom ones have articulation that lets them point upwards at the same angle.

This one looks vulnerable to close range combat - if an enemy mech is close enough, those long guns will inhibit movement... unless, of course, they are extensible and can retract.

Overall, a great design. I can't discern any more weak points. The beast looks pretty well armored. Agile, too, especially if its performing a ballet.

:icontrixiecondescendsplz::iconsaysplz:The great and powerful Trixie wonders about your guessing. The 'top' black stalks are comms relays. The bottom 4 guns are all articulated, they are only energy beams. Yes, it's specifically designed as long range mech with high accuracy and multiple simultaneous fire.

:iconrarityknowsplz::iconsaysplz:Just between you and me, I was surprised Princess Luna approve the budget.
:iconraritybrightplz::iconsaysplz:Fashion and conquest have endless appeal, she mentioned. And here we are.

Hmm. Looks like three Plasma Guns in each arm and some torso mounted projectile weapons, propapbly autocannons. NICE ONE.
