"mechanized infantry of the Federated Suns, 3rd Crucis Lancers deploy to defend a critical passage in rocky terrain"

Note1: I'll lower the resolution/detail depth a bit for the next few artworks, at the moment I have just not enough time for huge 4k stuff...
Note2: the Armored Personnel Carrier in the pic is my redesign of the "Tracked APC" ->

I love these kinds of scenes where you get a little of everything.  Vehicles, infantry, spacecraft... :D

Makes me feel fro my own infantry in BT.  Wonderful job, you may not consider yourself masterful, but this is solid work m8.  Thanks for sharing!

I say I like your take on the tracked APC

always nice to see the mudbugs and crawlers get some art in addition to mechs :)

Love it. I'm always curious to see what Mechwarrior infantry look like.

Awesome and really detailed, interesting to see a mechwarrior piece with infantry and tanks in it, I love everything about this. :)

More people have 1080p than any other resolution. Make much money off of 4k owners.

This is really good! It's so rare to see a mixed unit drawn well like this.

Love it!!

Incredible work!  It's great to see some flesh 'n blood grunts in action alongside the mechs.  Love your Armored APC redesign too, and the UAC/5 on the Shadow Hawk is a nice touch.  :D

And if they would allow this stuff in the game: Boom! Mind blown.
Right now it's a very enjoyable mech stomp but sometimes I think that leading a squad of (AI)infantry through the terrain or driving a tank would be sooo cool.
But then: It's MechWarrior Online, not GroundPounders Online :)

It would be such an awesome addition for sure...and if the engine would be optimized (PGI srsly, call Crytek and fix it), it shouldn't be a big problem...just let them even fight alongside the mechs controled by a simple script...background noise for the big guys so to say ;)

Another thing that really bugged me...PGI had this Space-sim in development (on ice by now, afaik)...why not tying that in to many options...think eve-online translated to Battletech...
GermanPete Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Nice idea. After all there's this often overlooked layer of space strategy in the Battletech universe.
Maaaaaybe they're able to tie that into community warfare (which was, when I tested with some friends, a thing of "too many battles, too little players to launch one of them").
Having infantry "along for the ride" would be awesome. Mechs walk to a capture point, an APC crests the hill and closes in, the infantry takes up shop in the structure and ta-daa: Point taken!
That'd be much more visual than a bar slowly creeping from side to side...

Wow, amazing detail and theme. How many hours did you spend on this piece? It's masterful
SpOoKy777 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2015  Professional General Artist
Thx, much appreciated...though personally I think I'm an eternity away from "masterful" ;)   ...this one took around 20-25 hours...
