damn that Tau firewarrior is hidden or cropped out well.

Why are people getting so upset over someone putting a trashcan as a Urbie... this person, even though they did the reskin, knows that is the Urbie joke. I hardly doubt the person who did the canned image was meaning offense by it, if anything they probably liked the recolour of the one they used. Plus this whole thread is about redoing a drawing in your own style... I do not see the reason to get undies in a knot.


Yeah, I know it's just a joke, and I'm over it. I guess I took offense because it was my repaint that got "trashed" instead of the base concept art. I put a couple of days of work into that repaint. I'm not as skilled as a lot of the other repainters, and my stuff takes longer to make. But anyway, like I said I'm over it, so, peace everyone, and LOL at the trashcan.

... Wait a minute. It was my original concept art that got trashed too!! Bah... Like you, I know there was no ill intention so, BlueDog, I am with you. Thanks for repainting my lil' Urbie. Your paint art does it honor.

Thanks man, yeah, little Urbie is the butt of all jokes, and, I truly commend your artistic bravery and gallantry. I really did try to repaint Urbie in a canon paint scheme, but I guess he is just a trashcan with legs, lol.

Well, the fact of the matter is that the UrbanMech is a part of the BT universe. The original has a poor look, granted. And poor speed. To have it in game, PGI would need to make a variant with a better look provided by FD (which was kind of Garth Erlam's idea behind the little challenge he proposed) and a better engine to give it some speed... But then it would differ from BT specs.

Didn't ever catch that fact..

In that case it would put him above Paul wouldn't it.. ?

If so couldn't he then demand the Urbie be in the game.. dämn the balance ??

when I first entered this forums someone had this haters gonna hate sig with this ugly mech that looked like r2d2 had unprotected usb connection with trashcan,I lold,I tought to myself what a funny ugly mech,that cant be official mech someone must made that as joke,then day after I accidentaly found it is official mech,now I see people liking that mech,world is strange place


While slow, it has jump jets, is small, and has a hell of a weapon for its size mech. For the Urban enviroment its quite a good mech.. not as lame as people give it credit for. I'm not kidding when I say in a Urban environment (or a canyon with lots of cover and hills to jump over) I would take one.

As for the Trashcan comments.. In the original art.. I never saw a trashcan.. a Hardboiled egg with legs yes.. but not a trashcan..

I don't know how you will call it - trashcan or egg with legs , but that litle mech is a icon and i have fealing that is a bit more popular then the marauder and warhammer :D , i love it . There isn't so many light mechs capable for combat with havier oponents at that time period .

P.S. Without serching in sarna i can recall only 4 of them as fighters - Jenner , Wolfhound , UrbanMech and Commando

So beautiful to see a picture of my kid like that! On the left one it's as if the AC stands out (probably has to do with the glare effect).

Is that some kind of quasi-confirmation right there? I sure do hope so. Can't wait to see it, I'm on the edge of my seat here... ;D
