Dire Wolf - Revival by sirdubdub Dire Wolf - Revival by sirdubdub
Taking a crack at the Battletech classic.

The Dire Wolf always seemed to be a bit too refined and "spacey" for my taste. I always wanted to see it as the rabid monster that was described in lore. At the time of its introduction, the Daishi is the biggest, meanest, angriest machine in the universe. An alpha predator. A mountain of screeching rage, tortured actuators, fire and violence. The canine/feline skull cap is meant to mirror and contrast with that of the Atlas, countering the Atlas' looming, indomitable presence with more primal pissed-offedness.

I'd like to imagine that the head section would vary from Clan to Clan as well, reflecting each Clan's totem. Jade Falcon bird-beaks and such...

p.s. the mechwarrior age of destruction clix version of the Daishi has that mean heatsink grill on the nose which really makes it look meaner than the original plane nose. I never really cared much about the original look of the Daishi, and yours takes it to a nice middle ground. Love it

If this was the hero mech for MW: O's direwolf... I would have lost my 40 or so dollars right now.

I love this design so much, i'd be scared shitless if THIS came around the corner in MWO, in MWO its just too smooth and fat looking, this would've been better in my honest opinion.

Not something I would want to meet on the fields of battle.
