Battlefield expedient mecha unit by Grebo-Guru Battlefield expedient mecha unit by Grebo-Guru
This is a small, quick sketch I did. Sloppy, but I liked the design, so I colored it and tossed it up here. I see it as some kind of construction mech which was modified to meet baseline combat capabilities.

It reminds me a Walker Machine. So '80s.

MMmmm.. Even GUndam shows rarely give us something like this. Typically these suits are more Pod, or Bug like in the Gundam Shows. Zetas, Junior Mobile is a fav.

The cannon at the shoulder is superbly designed, like something inspired from Gundam Sentinel (Katoki), and something from Kazushiya Kondo or Makoto Kobayashi.

Good Good keeping the Design simple too. Bang on!

Thanks very much! You're an observant fellow -- I was indeed thinking Kondo/Kobayashi on the gun. The main unit was most inspired by some of the old, obscure prototype ATs depicted in Dual Magazine. You can see them here:

I do NOT envy the poor bastard who has to pilot this into combat.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Could end up in a real MD Geist type of situation.

Nice. I like the junior mobile suit feel that this design has. It also works well in that it's clearly not a dedicated combat design, and so it feels a bit "kitbashed," which gives you the feeling that taking this thing into a actual firefight is perhaps riskier than one might like.

Hey, thanks for the cogent commentary. I was inspired by some drawings I saw of early Votoms ATs... like pre-pre-Scopedog designs. Construction/industrial units do seem like a logical starting point for what eventually becomes a military design.
