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.

I added this to my favorites a while ago, but I've recently been hunting around for non-military mecha and battlefield expedient mecha/technicals for a short while now (as inspiration for a Mekton-Z game that I'm running, as it happens), and I'm dismayed at how little there seems to be. Excellent work and not too hard to see what it probably looked like unmodified.

Well thanks! There's also the Otto, but I'm sure you know about it already. I'll also be posting another industrial mech soon.

Actually, I can't say for certain that I do know about that already.

I'll upload it in the next few days, then! I've been needing an excuse to color it anyway.

Oh! I had already uploaded it, silly me. Not colored yet, though.

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:
