WWII mech size comparison by Rob-Cavanna WWII mech size comparison by Rob-Cavanna
UPDATE 12/20/12: Added Siegfried for Germany, Longshanks and Big Tom for UK.

-----------------------

* * * O P E R A T I O N : D R A G O N S L A Y E R * * * [link]

Side by side line up of several anthro mech concepts for OPDS. Some of these from sketchup/photoshop collabs w/ :iconflaketom: Specifically: Pzf II, Pzf IV, Wotan, and Big Joe.

Sorta rough n' sloppy, but fun for a look. The evolution of the Axis mechs ought to make sense for AFV junkies who appreciate the technological leaps and bounds between a Panzer I and a Tiger tank.

WIP: other anthro mechs in progress didn't make this round, but will add 'em on in the future.

Also Omitted are all the Mech Destroyer concepts. In the vein of Fasolt and Fafnir:

drawing a line between those and the anthros. Ultimately there ought to be enough MDs for their own line up.

No offence but the proletarian mech looks a bit ridiculous

I see that all these mechs are based off of existing tanks what's the Wotan the maus or something? Also what's the Japanese one based off of?

You could say the Wotan is MAUS related. Or possibly even an idea similar to the RATTE P. 1000. There is no perfect 1 to 1 correlation for that one. Really the brainchild of :iconflaketom: But it totally fits into that absurd wonder weapon category that only WWII Germany would dream up. 

Japanese mech is easier... that would be the KyuGo (type 95).

Great! I really like the two new Camo options! Only thing I am missing is the british sand camo with the blue stripes, but that's probably for the next to come! :D

Good call! Gotta have the crazy blue stripes somewhere.

Maybe for the Templar, or a colored Allied mech mash up.

ever contemplate drawing some of the American or British mechs in Free-French Colors?
Reply
:iconrob-cavanna:
Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
Sure. Are there any specific camo patterns you want to see on a specific mech?

Ideally, I'd love to set up some sort of web page where anyone can use all available OPDS parts to design whatever mech they want, and in whatever color/markings they want.
Sort of like a beta version of an in-game mech garage. Even better would be the option of changing backgrounds and taking snapshots.

Heck, I've seen something like that on DA w/ a dress up Hipster girl: [link]
Granted, it's simpler than what I'm thinking, but even a more basic cartoon version could be fun to play with.

just for some diversity. and maybe one of the Charlemagne heads/weapon arms, etc.

That is a glaring omission, I'm aware. I have some in the works, they just weren't complete enough for this round, but I intend to update in the future and add more for all major powers. Even the Swedes and Czechs will get in there a bit. ;)

"Big Tom" (based on the Cromwell) "Longshanks" (from the Churchill tank) and the "Templar" (crusader) will eventually claim their spots in here.

I'm actually working on coloring a new Japanese mech right now...

But historically, both Japanese and Italian tanks were not that great, so it stands to reason that their mechs wouldn't be the best either.
Only natural to focus on countries w/ the stronger armor industry.

all work in progress tho. there will eventually be more of everything.

The final version looks awesome. I really like the details, like the text on the Kirov, you added!
Big yay for that!

Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2012
Didn't shade the Frenchies yet. But was just too eager to post something.

Got Kirov text from the decal sheet of a T-34 model kit posted somewhere online. No idea what it says. But at least it has historic precedence.

As I mentioned in one of my rambles... this would be the premium Kirov. Still wanna make the cheaper mass-production version w/ simplified head and melee weapon/arm... the "bear claw" idea.
Reply
:iconflaketom:
flaketom Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
haha, I know that feeling...

Really dig th idea of an 'one shot' melee weapon, like the bear claw. Perfect thing, for huge masses of cheap and fast produced mechs going already 'loaded' straight from th factory to the battlefield. Swarms of them overwhelming the enemy forces. Also shows the desperate need of the Soviets to counter the tank forces, clinging to whatever they can think of. Also like the idea, that melee combat as cheap version is possible in mechs, when compared to tanks.

:iconrob-cavanna:
Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012
exactly! As he is here, the Kirov doesn't totally fit the T-34 operational history so much as a cheaper kamikaze melee version would.

going a bit crazy over here w/ backlog of mech ideas. I think tiny thumbnails are the best way to get 'em all out in a reasonable time. Sorta like how VulnePro sometimes does.

as already said. Absolutely agree with you about thumbnails.
