Mech Warrior - Dervish by Shimmering-Sword Mech Warrior - Dervish by Shimmering-Sword
A dervish battle mech jump jetting and firing off a salvo of SRMs. Seems all these mechs want to fly :)

Once again for ~mstrider80

Hey Shim - is that 2 SRM 6's running sidesaddle on an LRM rack? And I like the "Laser Cigar" ala the Hauptman

Find a style of mechs you like and try their ideas, just try to make it look original too. Of course this design isn't totally mine, I just updated an old official battletech design.
