A commission for :iconmaxoconnor: ~maxoconnor
He saw my Marauder redesign and wanted one of his own. I put a little extra time into this one, as it was a good opportunity to show off the Mad from another angle.

This one could be one of many variants, any one that carries 2 PPC, 2 Laser, and 1 Autocannon type.

Enjoy :)

There was apparently a "Redesign the Marauder" contest at the Mechwarrior Online forums, and the official artwork that PGI did for their version of the Marauder looks similar to yours. Did you participate in said contest? If so, then did you win?

I did take part in the contest, but they didn't pull directly from it. My Marauder designs are pretty popular in the community so some flavoring is expected, but I also know their artist Alex Iglesias would make similar choices to me, and I can see plenty of difference.

I did always like the Marauder...  My favourite Battletech mech.

As much as I loved the original Marauder/Zentraedi Officers Battlepod, I now like your design better. Granted the animators for the original Macross probably wanted simpler lines so they could churn out drawings quickly, but this evolved design is actually beautiful in a brutal, crush your planet kind of way. Reminds me of the feeling I got years ago when I saw a model pic of a Kurita MechWarrior meditating in lotus position on top of his Marauder's cockpit- the weapon in the context of a wider culture. Now only if the design had gatling guns..

You catch the general drift of all my redesigns well. Take the originals and turn them into proper battletech material, rather than copied cannon fodder mechs made for a non related anime.

(Sorry for that, it's just I remember other Robotech mech)

Battletech also licensed the same designs, I've redesigned them to not be the same as macross.
