Letting the art speak for itself#4


Another mech built and designed by Drott Mechworks.

  1. Another excellent illustration. This machine has a stocky, tough feel to it. My only aesthetic complaint would be that the weapons on the arms are hard to see. From a practical perspective the machine gun on the mech's shoulder is a little exposed. It would be good for clearing infantry from the mech's blind spots but the crewmember would be up there without even a blast plate for protection. But still this is one fierce machine. What is it's designation? Also what powerplant does it use? (I don't see any exhaust ports) Is Drott Mechworks a military contractor and is it employee owned? I may send them my resume this winter.

    1. Sorry I've been gone so long. Glad you commented! I drew this quite a while ago, and I am pretty sure that I purposely left the guns off the arms. I have made some separate weapons designs and I decided to sketch a lot of my mechs with jet-fighter style pylons. Therefore the mechs can be fitted with different weapons on universal mountings. Drott is basically a family-owned company that became a mech manufacturer when Edward Drott took the company over. They used to build industrial construction equipment, so naturally, much of the tech changed over easily. The mech is simply called the 3-10M but I bet that it would have a unofficial nickname. I wasn't sure what power source I wanted to be prevalent. My options would be gas/diesel, electric, or a small nuclear reactor pods, or some other sort of reactor/generator tech. I'll have to work on it, hopefully I can work on some posts and get more definition and history set up. The basic premise is a WW3-style apocalyspe, where most of the land areas are irradiated. The warring nations reside on Noah's Ark-style floating towns constructed from aircraft carriers and barges.
