I wish this Society Proto would still be used but the clans will not have any of that traitor trash around them.  But I am sure a few modifications and someone in the Inner sphere would buy them.  (Dream happy mechy thoughts.)  This one is so cool looking that I wish I could be used by more factions.

Nice.   Intimidating and cool at the same time.

This a great battle mech. Looks like it could actually work. Very good work.

There's just so much to like about this. Clean design; sensible, and believable.

:O what is this book about? rules, novel, pictures what? i must know!
Glitterboy2098 Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
it's from War of Reaving, a setting book about what happened to the homeworld clans while the inner sphere was fighting the WoB Jihad. it has more info on the worlds of the homeworld clans, and what those clans were doing. also it has a bunch of new tech and units that showed up in the wars of reaving.

sadly, i can't describe it better than that, i don't have it yet. but i've been looking forward to it for years now.

A cut down or precursor scorpion, way too cool. I've not played battletech for years, early 90s I'd say. Think battleforce was the last campaign anyway. Looks like its time I got back into it with designs like this and not just mecha ripped from manga.

actually a 'protomech' is a clan tech unit combining some of the best traits of battlearmor, mechs, and vehicles. they use special nerve interface controls, and usually run between 2 and 9 tons (though AFAIK the book this model is in expands it higher).

the 'prototype' mechs that predate the classic models are classified as "primative" mechs.

Thanks for the clarification. When I finished playing Battletech and its components back in the 90s, the clans were only just being introduced in the novels by Stackpole. The gaming club I was in basically drifted apart as members such as myself were out of the country and therefore not present for much of the year. I stil have my battledroids set, its successor battletech, aerotech and citytech and the last to be used (failing memory) battleforce which introduced large scale combat.

I've decided thanks to your art to totally update all the rules and suppliments I own and if possible in the club that I'm currently in start a new battletech section. Thanks for re-arousing my interest in this game :D

not my art, i'm just a fan. i wish you well in catching up..i've only missed the stuff since the start of the the jihad in 2007'ish...and i sometimes feel lost when people start talking about stuff after. catching up from the 1990's onwards...yikes. you have some major info dumps coming your way. i'd suggest checking out [link] , which is a fan upkeept battletech wiki, and moderated pretty closely to conform to the game info. surf around there for awhile to see what you missed, then head over to and check out the offerings there, including the forums. the guys on the forums will certainly be willing ot help you figure out what books and stuff you'll want to get to catch up.

Really cool, both very predatory and reminds me of an insect.

the idea of a proto quad is pretty sick ^_^

I like animal style mechs, they looks very predatory.
