Dance in the flames by flyingdebris Dance in the flames by flyingdebris
Fire starter mech roasting some infantry, another one of the touched up old dev art pieces that ended up in the 25th anniversary book. Unfortunately i had to remove the burning of the furries from the image to make it more acceptible for the book, but the spirit is still there.

Would furries be the only targets?

Unfortunately? You mean it's unfortunate to pervade a stereotype that isn't true?

Imagine the pilot of the Firestarter ejecting and these infantrymen catch him. They would probably castrate him for the suffering his 'Mech dealt to their comrades.

Beautiful picture. Sad that they made you remove your bigotry though.

annnnd then he loses movement because of his horribly inadequate amount of heat sinks. You'd think with the name Firestarter they'd focus more on heat dissipation

The rule where you could apply the damage from the flamethrower to the targets heat scale instead was amazing. This mech was always underestimated in tournaments.

This looks almost like battlefield footage. Aww, shoot almost in the foot. It does look like battlefield footage from some place the groundhuggers thought to be save.

I always thought the Firestarter looked somewhat stupid until I saw this. Epic!

I remember seeing your Logan's Run concepts, then the original work of this with the furries (laughing a lot) and then later seeing this piece adopted by BT. So happy you are working with them. Your artistic contributions to the game and story bring a lot to the BT universe. We seem to be in a BattleTech art renaissance right now. :D Too bad so many of the Dark Age designs from earlier years have joints/limbs that would never work! They still seem to come to life with you, David, Matt, Stephen, Anthony, Eric, and the other folks on board. Just how awesome will the art get?! Its sad to hear about Doug Chaffee, but also inspiring to know that many of the current artists grew up looking at his stuff. I really hope I can work with you sometime, even if its only for a simple pic. :D

Eh, let the furries burn. They'd do it soon enough when they tried to snog a dragon anyway. Awesome picture. The color tones are interesting, the style is uniquely your own, the mech is somewhat unconventional and looks a bit awkward on its feet but at the same time seems totally in control. And it's almost reminiscent of the bot from The Day The Earth Stood Still, only bigger, cooler and infinitely more badass. I like this picture a lot. Well drawn.
