TRO Prototypes Cover by flyingdebris TRO Prototypes Cover by flyingdebris
Cover for the Battletech Technical Readout prototypes done for Catalyst Game Labs featuring a ultra ac10 sporting hunchback in a hangar.

Funny story
Cover links all the way back to that fan drawing i did many years back of the Hunchback in the snow in a round about way.

-Make hunchback fanart for shits and giggles.
-Years later starting doing official BT stuff, asked to repurpose fanart, make updated version.
-Art director, Brent Evans canonizes that specific appearance of the Hunchback with a new variant.
-End up making a cover featuring that variant.

I'm gonna guess 4 AC/2 as opposed to one AC/20.....if MW4 values are to be trusted then AC/2s are no less than 8 tons each....how is there room for anything else in this thing?

It is either an Ultra/AC or a Rotary Autocannon.

A:holy hell that is a username I did not expect to see
B:rotary makes sense to me, I hadn't considered it

A: A username you did not expect to see? Do you know (of) me from somewhere?
B: In his concept art for the Cicada in MechWarrior Online, he did a similar weapon pod on the torso which is an Ultra AC/5. I wouldn't be surprised if this piece is an Ultra AC/10 or a Rotary AC/5.

A:waaaay old webcomic I found on TWC, was fairly good
B:also true, I generally wouldn't expect the barrels of a rotary to be arranged in a square though

BATTLETECH! Nice. It is always good to find another fan, even if it is randomly discovered.

Looks to me like that poor Hunchback is really needing those repairs. Even if they are just touch ups. And bite it, I'm curious. What weapon is that on the left arm. It looks like some sort of laser, maybe even a PPC. Care to tell OwO

Finally someone actually attempts to portray myomer fiber bundles! Every book in battletech talks about how the 'Mechs were all powered by this radical new technology that mimicked how human muscles worked yet no one ever actually worked them into their designs! Nice!

Im glad to see you actually doing Battletech art. I know you've done it in the past for pleasure, but seeing your stuff on TRO's definately gives me a nerdboner! Nothing wrong with mixing pleasure with business.

I know it spins, but that Ultra AC 10 kinda reminds me of the blaster turrets from the Millenium Falcon :\

And if it spins, doesn't that make it a rotary autocannon instead?
