This is the Marauder redesign that i was commissioned to make by Catalyst Game Labs
It was designed and Art directed by :iconshimmering-sword: 

Over the years the marauder has become one of my favorite mechs starting with Anthony's original redesign and now culminating in this official redesign.
Sadly though the marauder has a trouble past which came back to haunt this design as well. So for the time being this will not be officially released as a miniature.
Nevertheless you can enjoy this render as a testament to what could have been. 
Enjoy

Modeled in Autodesk Maya

If this ever gets to be a mini, I’m buying twenty of them just to be sure. Such a good job by shimmering, but man, you made this look so good. I can see it sitting on my table right now! Here’s hoping 2018 can be the end of all the legal garbage, and you can get your designs on the gaming tables, where they belong! Fantastic work.

Got to love harmony gold getting uppity every time someone tries to use the marauder. they act like they actually created the original art as apposed to Shōji Kawamori.

I find it odd that harmony gold is suing Tatsunoko Productions who they purchased the macross/robotech imagery from for selling something they didn't own (the Macross/Robotech imagery). if they didn't own it and sold it to them then douse Harmony gold actually own the rights to the images?
Seems to me that the only legitimate owner of these images is
Studio Nue who created them in the first place and still has the rights to use them.

Sorry about the tangent..

I played one in high school where we cut off the AC-5, gutted the arms and replaced the Medium Laser and PPC with a single Gauss Rifle in each arm, two tons of ammo for each and used the extra mass for some double heat sinks, a slightly bigger engine and extra armor. I could run and gun like Medium, but had the armor to absorb more hits. It was also painted black with red markings. I had what at 16yo I thought was a cool name, but in retrospect it was probably something incredibly lame like "Black Widow."

I can't recall my MechWarrior's name, but she looked like Tia Carrere from the video game Didelius Expedition. (I had a massive celebrity crush on 1990s action movie Tia Carrere.)

the funny thing is there is a red and black marauder mech in the battletech lore and its piloted by Natasha Kerensky of the Wolfs dragoons mercenary company. who has the callsign black widow :)
