Mech Warrior Tactics Online concept art

Here's the first batch of mech I designed for the new FTP game Mech Warrior Tactics Online. It was quite the task as I had to embrace the spirit of the odd original designs from the 80s but not to stray too far into the Gundam realm as I updated them. The first sketches I did were very far into the anime realm and I had to dial it back. From what the fans have been posting on the site it seems as though I did a decent job although I did put a clan symbol on the Atlas that was wrong and will never hear the end of it. Sigh

For any Battletech MechWarrior fans reading this do not fear... the guys designing the game are big fans of the original game. It will be great
