Well I'm back! I started building this mech on my 15th birthday (31st august 2009), and finished it 4 days later. Built for the Dawn Forge theme.
About this creation
this was supposed to be for this diorama I'm trying to build, I know most people post the whole dio then post seperate MOCs of each vehicle, but I haven't posted anything for ages, so here it is.
Inspiration for this mech came from Mark Kelso's 'Dawn Forgery' and Brian Kescenovitz's SCHISM Class Urban Assault mech.
I've been trying to make a decent mech for the last month.
2 Auto cannons, chambered to fire the not-so-new 35mm high velocity round. The new mag-drive rail gun was supposed to have replaced the older auto cannons, but they're still great weapons for battering the h**l out of APCs and other mechs.
Linked to the auto cannons are 2 .45 calibre machine guns for anti-personnel use.
In the body of the mech, there are 2 -4 tubed missile pods containing 8 munitions.
the munitions are fitted with the new, state-of-the-art instant missile lock-on guidance system. Basically these missiles won't miss their target.
This is definitely the most Dawn Forge-y creation you've built. It still doesn't look quite as skilled as Brian K's own work to me, unfortunately. I think it needs to be a bit bulkier and more angular.

Thanks for telling me, this is one of the few creations worth a look, nice work here, turned out to be a quite detailed mech. The legs are my favorite part, high quality work there.
Thanks! the leg design was inspired by one of Brian's mechs, though my design is obviously different.
