Updated the Goliath's model. Reworked its legs, the guns, gave it a more dynamic pose, extra details, etc.

Here's some more stuff i did.

My favorite Battletech mech - the Scorpion:


Aaand something weirder - one of the mysterious tripods (the Scout tripod) from the Attack of the Tripods adventure.

I've also done one more thing, but i'm not super sure if it's ok to post it here, but i feel like it should be ok to share it.

I've done some modeling for a sort of conversion kit for the redesigned Wolverine (since i'm really not a fan of the turretless, plain glass window look of the new Wolverine.) Basically it's meant to fit onto the current Wolverine (once you chop off its head and laser) and comes with a few different options for the ball turret.

I've also always liked the handheld weapon of the original Wolverine and was quite saddened when the redesign got a fairly generic looking sidemounted gun... Sooo i again, modeled an entire lower arm with a handheld autocannon (and multiple laser arrays for the 6K and 6M variants). I also made a left arm that's holding a spare autocannon ammo clip. Because it's silly and i love it.



If i get the go-ahead, i'd happily share the files, if other people want to kitbash their Wolverines. If this does break the rules. I can remove this post.

Granted, the side mount for the Head Weapon on the Classic Wolverine is a little off-putting. I could see you're chin turret rework in there well enough.

I LOVE that Scorpion!
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Very interesting and well done.  Hope to see more, like the classic Ostroc and Ostsol.

Totally agree on the Wolverine.  I like the new art right up to the head and medium laser.  The “face/chin” mounted turret is what gave that mech character and made it unique.

Mother of GOD that is amazing!

What program are you using to make these? Pretty sure I'm getting a 3d printer for Christmas,  and I've got a ton of designs id like to try...

It must be hard to do those rendings.  I'm actually more interested in the art works than the model making stuff.

Good question, i know that I was using Lux-Render for Sketchup models and I admit I,'m more comfortable now with blender.

Maybe you should consider render your models in blender. The ropes are simple and you have a better variety of materials and more important backgrounds
