Most importantly, that side profile isn't god awful "hit the front CT from almost behind the mech" bad... Sure it protrudes, but the little flappy things on the ST do help.

There is a distortion in scaling between the left and right sides of the 'Mech. The right side looks really good, nice and big torso with decent sized arm (but needs to be longer). Right leg and foot looks nice and thick and appropriately proportioned to be on this 'Mech. The left side all looks too skinny. Make the left side the size of the right side as it is scaled here and it will look great! color scheme is awesome! In this picture the arm missile pods look really small and somewhat graphically incomplete in the missile doors the way they are inlaid in the pod. The one on the left torso is a neat idea! Maybe the pods need to be just a little bigger so tube spacing will look right? However, the other missile pods in the mechbay video look great! Nicely proportioned and sleek looking.

The new Mech Bay is really nice. The paint schemes for the Fafnir look great! The 'Mech looks better in the new Mech Bay than it does in the above pictures. Nice detail on all parts of the 'Mech.

And globally for the HGR, could it have the barrel slug diameter expanded out to the next ring etched in the end of the barrel? The projectile hole in the barrels of the HGR looks too small for the damage it does.

Thanks for the preview picture. Nice work!

Given how I tend to place Steiner Logos in those checkerboards, the idea of a massive Mech adorned with massive Steiner logos is just fun to me. It practically screams "STEINER PRIDE!!"

well well. Is it possible that the new "Mech Bay 2.0" uses less memory Posted Image !!? than the game itself in matches. single test was with W7 dx11 low 16: 9 settings. Thank you. But thing for the game plz

Note: Check the lights inside the cockpit of the mechs in this case and ARCTIC WOLF. Posted Image

It's going to need strong ST armor quirks so it can keep it's guns in the face of the fish. Also if it can get good torso twist speed to help it twist off dmg that'd be very helpful for this barn door.

So I played this mech back in MechWarrior4 Mercenaries Mektek Mod 10 years ago so its LOL not a new mech to me or other old time players it was large easy to hit and kill back then and with so many OP light mechs in MWO this thing it DOA.

MWO mechs are like -10 agility to the old MW4 mechs and most assaults back then could kill solo piloted light mechs but in packs light mechs back in MW4 could kill assaults.

So good luck buying these large assaults and trying to have fun most will go into a battle and get killed in under 30 seconds unless PGI learns how to balance there mechs better.

Man, i just hope PGI realises how much this mech needs at least (!) ANH level of quirks.

It's one of my top 3 favorit mechs, but i wont spend a penny on it until i see the quirks. Money is waiting to be spend, and i hope it will be. Don't mess this mech up by underquirking it pls.

Difference between ANH and FNR: ECM
Difference between KGC and FNR: ECM
Difference between KDK and FNR; ECM
Difference between DWF and FNR: ECM
Difference between AS7 and FNR: ECM on 3 Variants over 2
Plus this ECM also speaks Stealth Armor.
Imagine a Spooky Fafnir towing 2xUAC 20 slipping in between the enemy lines wrecking up backs.....
SPOOKY!!!

Thanks for bringing back some form of Videos. I loved the old videos for introducing mechs.
Second...I realy hope that thing has some good sidetorso quirks. Man these are big eyes....they will be hard to miss.
