First off, yeah, it's weird that I'm posting fan art in here while also working at piranha games, but as you'll see, this is totally a fan project I've been doing for my own enjoyment over the last while.

Last November, I was handed a box of old mechs by a coworker. They'd obviously been there a while. Some where in rough shape. Many were simply painted, some were not. Either way, it was a substantial gift, but these mechs needed some love. I also had a rather large collection of my own mechs that needed attention; some that needed repainting or repairing. I decided to set out and try and get as many as I could in mwo camo. I even did a few more that aren't shown here (like a Firemoth in Ebon Dragoon camo), or had others that I didn't add because they didn't fit the criteria of being whole/unmodified.

You can find them Here.

I think that it is great that you are engaged and feel so passionately about an IP that you actually get to be involved in work wise. You're also the dev I see most often in game and while I am sure you guys have a strict code of conduct to adhere to as representatives of the company, you still come across as legit nice fella.

I'm not a big mini fan but this is still really cool.

....The Black Knight .... looks the cleanest. Good color covering not to thick (Zeus looks like it was painted with to thick color) - nice Black Lining.

What I realized especially for the S7 Centurion - you need to use more washes, and when you want to paint something White you should not use white at all, same with black and grey,

For white a good base color Sepia...from there you work to the highlights.
