HatamotoChi by LKY13 HatamotoChi by LKY13
It was fun redesigning the old Hatamoto-Chi. I always thought the original artwork was a little gaunt to represent an 80 ton assault mech. I went with a very traditional Samurai stylized armor. Different from the toy-ish style found on DA style Kurita mechs. Anyway, I wish that the stats for her were a tad more intimidating, but for an Inner Sphere design, she can still hold her own.

A very nice redesign of a horribly wronged mech. Great job.

Thanks. Stats could have been a lot better, but I still love some of the older variants.

Thank you! It was a fun process, if a bit rushed. Very much looking forward to the miniature!

Yet another Mech design I wanted to love, back in the day... except that the official illustration looked awful and the miniature was worse! You've really brought across the mass and profile of an 80-ton Mech here - and I'm amazed by the twin back banners, which just fit so well with the outline!:D

I wish I was allowed to fiddle with the samurai totem-mechs. This looks a lot closer to how I'd go about reimagining them.

I thinks it's actually kind of amusing how closely our styles mirror one another at times...:sherlock:

That looks much better for an 80 tonner. Very cool!

This is so much more awesome than it should be. This variant has NO lasting power. It can maybe deliver 15 minutes of really solid sniping, but it's down to a freaking ER medium laser in the head once it runs out of ammo. Don't get me started on that oversize gyro, too. First-generation CASE will only go so far to protect the guts of that thing when a lucky hit pierces that juicy 3-ton MRM ammo bin. Reinforced or not, that armor will peal like a banana.

But yeah, no, your artwork is flawless. Good job.

Haha...I was *really* hoping for a much better variant in the back than what we got. Glad you like the art though. Thanks!

I would never blame the illustrator for the writer's mistake. In any case, this isn't nearly as bad as what they did to the mechs in TRO 3085. They didn't even bother to match the weapons (type or location, in some cases) to the illustrations on several mechs (chief among them, the Penthesilea, though it was drawn by that godawful Phoenix artist).

The new face of the Combine, and one I can happily stand alongside! So many good looking machines for the mid-32nd century...and so many good artists doing them.

Looks awesome but IMO, the head looks kinda derpy. But overall, it's a solid redesign
