Battletech 3D fan models
« on: 10 April 2020, 01:33:14 »

They're done in Sketch Up.

Goliath:

Yeoman:

Brigand:

Thorn:

Mantis:


Not sure what mech i'll try to do next

Edit

Really like that take on the Goliath. Maybe give the Scorpion a go?

Please donate* your Yeoman to CGL/ironwind so they can use it. The current mini is painful.

Alright, time for the next mech!

It's the 25 ton Brigand:


Oh and to answer the question about the Scorpion model, i had done, god knows how long ago - i lost the file when i changed PCs, though i might find a backup copy whenever i get back to my parents' home where my old PC resides.

Until then, there's this forum post i had made with the Scorpion model:

Hey man, if IWM or CGL wanted, i'd happily send them the model files  :D

But i don't think they'd ever do that, there's probably some legal-shit to do with it

Well, the newest MAD II design is basically identical to his old Marauder designs from his freelance days.

Well, it is the same artist ;D

The reason he got the job in the first place was almost everyone loved his fan renditions (not that you can tell with the comment now ::) ) but I remember it being posted in passing that there had to a be a distinction between his fan work/commissions and the official CGL designs. So if CGL wanted to commission you for a new Goliath based on your current work, they can.

It's also been mention CGL won't touch fan designs to avoid possible future complications.

Well, after a sleepless night, another model comes out! This time it's the objectively terrible 65 ton version of the archer! - The Bombardier!

Be sure to stay close to the supply lines with this abomination, because it runs out of ammunition faster than you can spell its name.

I get a 2001: A Space Odyssey vibe from that Hornet. I never imagined in a million years that anything could make a -Hornet- of all things creepy.

Brilliantly done!

Not to knock him down, but i think the cockpit & windows aren't swayed back enough. They's bit stubby. It looks bit like Volkwagon Beetle way their curved.

I'm a fine person to speak given its whole like better than i can mange to make!

Reworked/updated the Helepolis model. Completely redid its legs and arm (also fixed a ton of internal geometry issue that should make it easier to print, if you're into that sort of thing).

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.

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

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.

Makes me wish the stuff could be in a game.  MWO no HBS/BT has them.

Always a pleasure to see such fine work as this. I use sketchup myself for my own sculpting, altho I’m more of a spaceship guy than ‘mech. I’ll see if I can post some of my work here later.

Dang! These new ones are so good! And I can see a lot of 3rd-party wargaming use for that tripod, too!

That Helios is really impressive.  I've sort of wanted a Helios for years but have always been turned off by the mini...

I fell out of favour with heaven somewhere, so I'm here for the hell of it now...
