The New World WIP by Kvlticon The New World WIP by Kvlticon
I'm the king of unfinished work, but I completely redid the background. I've had enough of devastated urban environments, so nature is a bit of a break from all that.

Ideally I want to do a concept for some of the smaller exoskeletons that are in the background.

Armor classes: siege, sunder, heavy, medium, light
Primary use - anti-armor, anti-air

I love this atmosphere: it reminds me a lot of the Front Mission T-RPG series, particularly the 2nd and the 3rd game.

Yeah, it's a good idea to trade urban settings against nature: it gives some sort of 'Nam vibe which increases realism IMO...

I haven't seen the movie yet, though I have heard good things about it. One day I could do some fanart of that.

Googled some images of those. Having trouble really finding any substantial similarities.

No not at all, but I took a thorough look to see what was familiar and what wasn't. So far I can only say that the turret of the gekko has slight similarities to the upper assembly of my design, but they are only superficial, as their weaponry and accessories are mounted quite differently. 

Even if I stripped the guns and launchers off both mech designs, their base structures are highly divergent. For one, the gekko's  primary turret is connected with a relatively thin pivot, which is absent from my design. Also note the way the legs and hips on the gekko are constructed - the gekko has extra hardware and joints.

This is awesome, I'm not usually a fan of mechs with no hands, but those gatling cannons are perfect

+1 to also loving this mech's concept. Fusing the likeness of an aircraft with that of a walking platform looks outstandingly executed in my opinion. And the title says "WIP" so you're not even intentionally done yet haha.

The setup with those rotary cannons, (assuming) ATGMs and SAMs are wicked. However pardon my possible ignorance but what do you mean to imply with "sunder" 1.) being bolded, 2.) it being listed amongst others under the category "Armor Classes", and 3.) its meaning?
1.) & 2.) Is assuming that this platform is a "sunder" class of armored walker within your series and/ or (a) universe's lore correct?
3.) The definition of sunder involves "parting", "dividing", and "breaking", so in this sense is the term suppose to imply that this platform plays an important psychological role on the battlefield [besides ruining anyone on the receiving end's day]? Or am I looking at it from a wrong perspective?

Also, might we see additional variants of this platform? [So many possibilities!] And what might that object be slung under the transport in the background? Looks like it might be a large armored fighting/ command vehicle..?

Anyways cheers! Thanks ahead of time for any time spent answering the above questions; look forward to seeing the possible exoskeleton concept(s).
