Just the art, no fluff or stats, don't want to give away the Empire after all.

Correct on both accounts.  The Shara is a replacement/upgrade of the Zorya and takes its role and the Mythras and its inspiration was the Zorya or the RL BV series of vehciles..  And yep, the Alecto is a chonky boy.

Actually..I need your help folks! 

What would a suitable IS name be for the Alecto, its slow but heavily armed and tough (can't jump)  we've got Toads, Gnomes etc, so what would this chonky boy be called?  I was thinking 'Boulder' or something, but any ideas would be nice!

And for context where first sighted it'll be FRR/Merc forces that see them as they are in the Wolf OZ region.

Sadly the name Golem is already taken by the GB Assault BA, as is Ogre for the Dark Age Heavy BA. How about Troll, Talos, Mimir or Jotun?

Just recalled that technically there's already a 'Mech called the Talos, but in fairness A) it stopped being built over 500 years ago, and B) it's not like the authors haven't reused names before.
