Gratitude accepted but lxxxl, if I may, your statement is not quite accurate. You did ask for a Death Commando Catapult as well, with the launchers closed. Unfortunately, I do not have the closed launcher template as stated in an earlier message. However, I do think you may like the alternative proposed below.



I figured the above was rather 'blah' so I did this new version as well:



So about that launcher, do you still want it closed? :P


Amazing, you have your style! The best Catapult in this thread so far (IMO of course, House Imarra Catapult by Hayden runs second).

謝謝

Spending 2 minutes in lunch break to respond. Thanks for your compliments lxxxl. I am truly flattered. One can argue it's all a question of taste, but for me, Hayden's Dynasty Guard Cat in http://mwomercs.com/...dpost__p__71852 is the mark to beat. Actually, the aesthetics and skill in that entire post are a reference in my book. Kudos to the father of this thread! *i-Hawk bows down to the Colonel.*

Well, that looks like a challenge for my buddy Ironhawk. (I wouldn't be surprised if he was not already on it)

Had to throw in abit of the 25th MM paint job, and badge, and my Lance name and Motto. If we can do custom stickers Inouye Man will be on all my Mechs. B)


If any of you who CAN do the sweet repaints I've been drooling over would be so kind I'd like to see this done well.




Well... it sounds like friend T-bird has set me up in a nice little trap. When I saw Punk's design, there was something I liked: first, he has the guts to express himself and try out a repaint. Kudos! I also liked that gone through the pain of figuring out the design instead of just asking 'Can anyone do a 25th MM? Thanks.'

So yeah, I'll do it, in a 'Mech or 2. Just so we need to iron out a couple of things:

25th MM is supposed to be purple according to camp specs (with red and blue accents respectively on the right and left side of their bodies, which you did). A little bit like this:

Is there a reason for that?

To date, I have found the following decals:

(this one above is some wonderful work by Hayden by the way)

(look at that, also Hayden!)

But I didn't find the other one on the left arm...

If you can guide me towards it, It'd be great! Only piece missing.

Okay took a stab at this one, but Ironhawk don't let that stop you...I'm sure Punk won't mind more then one look for his 'mech B) .

Two versions (only slightly different) one light one dark...

Oh IronHawk, the purple guy can be found in this thread:

Hartsblade, ya beat me to it! Nice stuff! The idea of putting the 25th MM insignia on top is dead on, leaving ample room for the Inouye Man to shine on that shield. Dark one is better.

Punk has talent. I am sure he can catch on quickly if he uses Hayden's templates from page 16 (I assume he didn't use them).

A Look Back At January...

New month, new opportunity to reflect upon the recent past... Put things into perspective.

First, I am going to say this: I never thought I'd be doing so much of that repaint art! Could never have guessed. Aside from our Hula and Urbie lovin' buds at PG and so many talented people on this thread, two people more specifically inspired me: one is easy to guess. It's Hayden. Hayden, sir, your production and rigor are an example to us all. Sharing the templates and insignia work is mighty generous as well. I am sure I speak on behalf of many to say that you are an inspiring force. Hats off! Also, my buddy Thunderbird, who has been working for years on countless miniatures from Games Workshop and others, doing wonders at small scale (crafty fella'), has inspired me with his tenacity and hard, relentless work.

Figured in early Jan I'd make a couple of poster art posts this month... and I ended up doing repaints and not counting them. Looking back here are what I think should be on top 3 among my little art pieces for the month (with the links for those who may have not seen the earlier ones):
  • View on coast battle from Vulture cockpit interior (#537)
  • Delivered cold poster with the UrbanMech (#614)
  • Yen Lo Wang in the Coliseum scene (#720)
Can't guarantee same production rate for Feb, but I'll definitely be back on this thread often enough.

Thanks for reading.

You really need to add the AH sites addy to your sig. Be a bit easier to find, eh?

Talent? Maybe. I'm no good with layers tho, and I don't have a prog that does them as well as PS. I'd actually like to see what I did with all the red replaced with Purple, so, actually a closer version to what is the cannon 25th MM paint scheme, leaving the black and white areas from my inital design, plus my Inouye Man, Lance + motto + W.

They both look killer, but ya the darker one looks more mencing. If I can look that mencing on the battlefield, maybe my CO will look past my shoty piloting. B) Awesome job man.

If you guys want a REAL challenge, come up with an FD-style UrbanMech... taking out an Atlas with a critical hit (IE. similar to the Critical Hit card in the CCG. And yes I know it wasn't an Atlas there B))

I can't speak for the other artists, but before I start mine I actually "clean" them as best as I can. Remove any decals or strong non-gray-scale coloring. I've been releasing templates for people to work off, you can find them on this thread if you want to use them.

...I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna go one above doing it. Give me a couple days.

ED: Still posting to page 37 until I fill it.

Hello, I am a long time admirer of this thread, even though I have not really posted anywhere else.
I think the work done by Hayden and Ironwork has been spectacular. As a result I decided tonight that I would give this a go.
I have never really used photoshop or anything like this before and used Esentials as that was what opened Haydens wonderful templates.

I have done a Jenner in the colours of the Taurian Concordat 1st Taurian Pride I picked up the 24 symbol which was quite hard to see and I don't link the end product of that. Please let me have your feedback



Posted Image

Here is a Hunchback in Concordat Commandos paint scheme, didn't like the red at first but I think it sets it off nice now
Posted Image

I have tried to work in insignias on this one, however, I think I might need some tips.
Here is a go at an Atlas from the 5th Oriente Hussars
Posted Image

The next is a Fire Mandrill Hunchback iic, went middle ground with a bit darker orange and a grey rather than back as I felt the black obsurced too much, had problems with the insignia so gave up, might attempt it again when I have more patiance
Posted Image
Decided to surf Camospecs and found out about the Black Lions Co-operative (the oldest co-op on Solaris) and thought the Catapult would look cool painted along those lines. I debated about making the nose purpule but decided against it.
Posted Image
Found the brilliantly painted 3rd Drakons on camospecs and did an attempt at an atlas.
Posted Image
As much as I think the atlas' above are poor, I am really liking the 2nd Freemen (FRR) Hunchback below which I have done, the Rune on the AC means 'gift' and the two on the centre torso mean 'joy' and 'ride'Posted Image
Hiritsu Catapult - The specs said green with silver and then black trim, I could not get the look of the minitures so I went with silver trim with black to a lesser extent
Posted Image
Harloc Raiders Atlas next, the silver band around the middle signifies that they used to be mercs. I went and highlighted the legs and the weapons ports. It has also eaten a few lesser mechs and has coolant around his mouth.
Posted Image
House Imarra Jenner next up using the hex color for ivory and jade green, with gold accents.
