Battletech - Lyran Royal Court

Commissioned by

An illustration of the Lyran Royal Court located in The Triad government complex on Tharkad. Two Griffin GRF-1S Battlemechs stand at either side of the Archon's throne, quite a sight to be seen, particularly for any would be assassin.

If those things have jump jets, then I pity the MechWarrior that accidentally presses them while stretching his/her legs, or gets bored enough to hit them by accident.

Jimmy, what have I told you about bringing your mech in the house.

Is that the archon during the warrior trilogy.

The Lyrans are absolute madlads! Absolutely insane to put BattleMechs on the inside of the court! I can imagine that the sound of the reactor may make conducting business at that table a little difficult to hear.

The reactor itself is silent - there would just be a whine from the turbines (assuming it uses a steam turbine for power and not an MHD coupling), which could easily be muffled.

They can probably calibrate them to run as quiet as possible, maybe even use noise canceling tech on them.

 They may be more ceremonial. Thay may not even be manned.
Shimmering-Sword's avatar
Oh, they're manned and entirely operational :)

I hope the pilots get to get out and stretch their legs and such.

Typical for a royal court in the Innersphere. :jawdrop:

that's some security

may the clans find hell if they ever try to interrupt the political peace in these halls

They had a rough time when they tried it in the DA era.

I wonder how they are holding up? will the inner houses prevail?
Shimmering-Sword's avatar
Clans are having a field day haha. Though I forget if they've taken Tharkad or not. Lyrans might be the worst hit faction currently.

Hall of Clans next? With each of the clan's unique interiors? :D 3050 or so era?
Shimmering-Sword's avatar
lol, too much work, and doubt anyone would pay for such a project :D

Are they always manned?  I remember that mech from fooling around with the game with my dad, it had all long range weapons (was also his favorite, I liked the bird like Catapult the most).  Weird choice if they're actually defending the boss lady.  Get some Phoenix Hawks or something.  Hell, even a Stinger would be more appropriate!
Shimmering-Sword's avatar
Yep they're always manned, using rotating shifts. These ones are loaded with a large laser, still a long ranged weapon, but all you need to melt an intruder :D

I know many people simply complain that the Griffin looks "plain", but I simply love them. Maybe because of exactly that, who knows?

Anyhow, kickass art, as usual.

Thats not, terrifying at all. Remind me again were the lyrans known for their abundance of sanity compared to the other houses
They were known for sending a 60 ton Mech as a scout, and their assault mechs could outmaneuver most fortifications.  They didn't have that many great generals, but they had a good economy and a great hammer.
Why would they put mechs in the court?
