Project: Dark Phoenix revamp

Post by Rommel Twee » Mon Sep 19, 2011 10:26 pm

While working on the new style Battlemaster had a bit of an idea on the old idea of Project: Dark Phoenix. The whole idea originally was to remake the original 'Mechs using the new restyled/reseen designs as a base. Between myself and several others, I think this was accomplished even though the whole project didnt go where I would have liked.
Anywho, I had the brilliant idea to revamp these a bit more and have them prototyped just for fun. The big change was to remove any window, canopies, viewports that appeared on the mini. Going with the idea that the VR helmets were exactly that, complete VR that received their input from body mounted cameras and sensor strips. This to me removes the big flaw in Btech 'Mechs...cockpit glass. Ferro or not, it always screamed "SHOOT ME !!!"

So the first redo is the LCTX Wyrm Light Combat Walker

and the STGX Hildr Light Combat Walker

The designs look good, but I think that the JJs on the STGX need more squaring off at the ends.
