Marauder MK III by LKY13 Marauder MK III by LKY13
This is the updated version of the illustration for the Star League era Polaris. I tried out some new techniques, and fixed a few areas that were bothering me on the original. Also changed the weapons a bit to fit my new stats. The Marauder, and Marauder II have always been my personal fav's. Thought I'd update the art with my style and stats. This art is unofficial.

The Marauder MK III a co-op project between House Steiner and Clan Wolf in Exile.

Threw this 'mech together for MegaMek. It's decent but has to have an XL Engine and the Gauss is really squishy. To be used as a second line battlemech at best.

Marauder is my fav. And this takes the Marauder way past the brink of awesome. Well done. :clap:

I think once the timeline caches up we might see more DA mechs. Hard to say really.

are you only doing concept art or will you actually be kit bashing this with the mini's?

A kit-bash could be fun, but I think it would take some sculpting too.

Geezus - this is amazing. Marauder is also my fave mech of all time and I love the upgrade you gave it for the MK III - if only this was official haha ;)

Shoot starting to look like a Behemoth too me. Still it's pretty good look nice and meaty

Yeah, have some Behemoth flavor in there, but that makes cents since the Behemoth was patterned after the Marauder II. Thanks!

A Improved heavy gauss & a HAG 20?! bloody hell that thing could really tear the shit out any kind of mech! the heavy gauss rifle would one shot kill pretty much anything up to a 40 tonner & leave a really biug hole in the armour of a bigger mech. that's where the Huper gauss comes in. fire the hyper gauss into that hole & you've got automatically a ton of critical hits! that's a really effective one-two punch.

Would love to do this. Maybe with some help from a friend. Would sure have a lot of detail for a mini. I can imagine the reaction after plopping it down on the game table at the local game shop... :stinkeye:

Oh wow. I just checked, and yes, I can fit that all in. Not much room for ammo or heat sinks though, but I'm giving it a movement of 3/5/0. Do you have specs for this? I'd love to see how my Demonforge fares against it.

LKY13 Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yep. Designed it in SkunkWerks first. I don't remember all the small details without looking at SSW again, but it is 3/5/0.

Basically a walking battleship.

Seriously weighed down with the big guns, not that that's a bad thing =D. Does she keep the Mad II's jump jets or did you use that for armor and ammo?

Ammo. IIRC it only has two tons of ammo for the iHGR.

Oh dear god... I just ordered my first BattleTech Starter Kit (yes, I'm getting into the whole thing a little late), and I would LOVE to take this baby out for a night on the town...

Okay, there might not be a town left afterwards, but THAT ORPHANAGE ATTACKED ME! YOU ALL SAW IT!

Here are the two sites I frequent. You should be able to find a group at one or both. I've been a member of both for years. Great community...
