4hrs spd painting + 1 hr of tweaking (anyone still interested in the orginal work? I will post it in the scrap section if anyone is interested)
Trying to see how I can paint within 4hrs
This is a design meant to be a homework for school (Althought I am not required to paint it ... just design it)
We were supposed to look at uniforms worn by world war II soldiers and try to adapt the uniform features into something futuristic.
But I decided to bring it further by trying to adapt a few other features from world war II into it, most notably the armor skirt from upgrade StuG assualt guns (Well I just love how those armor skirt look in Company of Heroes)
Some background concept....
Tanks had become obsolete with the introduction of Armored Infantry on the shell shaped cities of Germany, supported by armored cars and motorised infantry units, resulting in a new form of blitzkrieg techniques.
Heavily armed with enlarge version of the standard infantry weapons like the Mg34, and heavily armored, even the famed allied airforce could do nothing against them not considering that they themselve are facing next generation jet fighters.
While it replaced the tanks, it still shared similar weakness to them as infantry units can easily sneak up and plant a crippling strike at the joints of the Mech, to protect the mech from such attacks, additional armored skirts was install at vital areas.
The mech had a inner crew of 3, the commander, the driver and the gunner. It was always closely followed by an armored car which house the 2 support crews which will help armed the weapons from the outside and provide more sight and cover against infantry
