RCDF Compilation 1 - 4 by Foxi-5 RCDF Compilation 1 - 4 by Foxi-5
I'm soo lazy, and now you see why all those robots are in boring poses. So I could do a test compilation of this new frame-base.. Oh well, just for fun.. PONYTECH! (Bit of a spoof on Battletech for those who don't know)

I ripped the pony pictures off the net, which were in turn ripped from the show. Hope no one minds.... I'm just to sleepy to redraw such good mini images...

Many thanks for the Bronies who helped name them! :) I DIG their tags. yeeeah.

So what is Luna's first squad called? Anyone..?

More mechs to come. *Sleep first though..*

Time to assemble the team.... Do you have a favorite?

PS. I'll be at the Armageddon Expo this year, in Melbourne. So Ponytech, me teaching my feeble mech illustration skills, plus they'll be something extra special their for mecha fans. Oh yes.... Very special indeed.... Heehehe :D

& Yes, you may re-post this image elsewhere.

Individual Mech Pictures with Ponies,
Luna's mech -> Night Wraith (found here -> [link] )
Lyra's Mech -> Lyrian Brawler (found here -> [link] )
Rainbow Dash’s Mech -> Thunderbow (found here -> [link] )
Derpy’s Mech -> Crossfire (found here -> [link] )

If organized like modern tank formation this squad would be called the 1st mecha platoon combined with Big mac, Applejack, Pinkie pie, and Fluttershy they would then be called first mecha company. Also I am one huge fan of mechs.

Ever consider building some light 'mechs?  heck, even medium 'mechs would be tame after this MASC-fest.

Probably Fluttershy's is light...

Dragodonv2 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2013
Looks at least like a medium to me.  I mean, when I think of a light 'mech, I envision the Owens and the Firefly.  I am simply questioning why all of your 'mechs look like suped-up Anihilators...  

To me at least...

But they are awesome...

Meh, I guess I would tend to draw much more "modest" designs (mainly due to lack of drawing ability).  For instance, when I fight in Mechwarrior 3, I almost exclusively use a 12 Med Laser BLackhawk with as many heat sinks and AMS's as I can fit on it.  And of course fully rigged with CASEs.  I think that is a loadout that pushes the envelope when it comes to mech balance.  Big mac's on the other hand...

Anyway, apart from my unwarranted criticism, I think that Luna's group should have at least one of these names:

(FYI, a Star is a group of 5 mechs in the clans, but I don't know how the Inner Sphere organizes its army)

Dark Star
Polar Star
Star Eclipse
Dream Guardians
Nightmare Titans
The Kindly Bunnies (suggested by Fluttershy)
E.M.U (Equestria Mechanized Unit)  it is the first one isn't it?
The Night
Dream Rapier
Luna's Hoof
Luna's CRUSHING Hoof (Suggested by a subconcious Nightmare Moon)

I've actually got 5 base frames that I work off mostly. Generally the ones you see are typically of one type, as it's the newest and I'm still 'breaking it in'. The lightest ones I do, not shown here, are similar to the EVA types from Evangelion, but slightly more humanistic in appearance. If you were lucky to be in Melbourne at Supanova this year (or next year) you'd see the whole she-bang. Turret, Standard, Sentinal, Reverse Leg and Light... Also the light version, to medium to heavy and some pushing the limit on size... Oh, and the mechs don't follow the Battletech standards anymore, but that's for a reason. ;)

OH, OK, I assumed from all the talk that you were operating on Battletech standards.

But I limit myself.  That's good you have your own original frames to spawn these designs.

Say, what did you think of my suggestions?  As it turns out, the Inner Sphere organizes it's squadrons in "Lances" of 4 mechs.  Conveniently, like the 4 mechs arrayed here.

But yeah, I'm glad I captured your interest.

Crossfire: Artillary/Juggernaut, Thunderbow: Skirmisher/Scout, Lyrian Brawler: Brawler, Nightwraith: Direct fire support i.e. mechbuster. Overall a well balanced team though the only quick one would be Thunderbow by their looks. I would have them on defense or medium range support. Alternatively they can be used to hunt for targets. Thunderbow can scout with Lyrian Brawler and spot for Nightwraith and Crossfire. Suggested this be for small fights since this spreads the group apart leaving Nightwraith and Crossfire vulnerable to sneaky brawlers or infantry. Group name? Crescent Shield? La luna del' cacciatore, Hunter's Moon?

Q: So what is Luna's first squad called?

Hmm.

Just because RD is in there, why not call it "Legend"?
Maybe "Luna's Rebellion: Wrath" would work.

*Stares at the Mechs again*

"Equestria's Finest"?
"Luna's Rebellion: Thy Strength"
Or just "Luna's Rebillion"
"Love and Tolerance Reincarnated"
"PonyTech: Unleashed"

I 'tried'. ;(

Foxi-5 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012
The universe theme is suitable, however, some of those names... Um, anything more deadly?
Reply
:icongidmp:
gidmp Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012
Well, there is no names for space object that seems deadly enough. sooo, how about "Nox Currum"? means 'Death Chariot', but 'nox' also have other meaning such as 'nightfall', 'sleep', 'dark', so it could also be 'Dark or Nightfall Chariot'

or if you want to stick with the universe theme, it could be
"Atra Nocte" means "Black Night"
"Atra Lunae" means "Black Moon"
"Death Star" (lol)

if u want the extreme (meaning) one:
"Equum pallidum" means green horse, that i refer to the book of revelation

"When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come and see!" I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth."

— Revelation 6:7-8

hope this helps

Not bad, I like the Black Moon version. Dread Moon.(?) I've got Dead Star Marines on a shirt at home.. Actually, what about 'Apocalypse Moon'? Hmmm... Might need some work...
Reply
:icongidmp:
gidmp Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012
that's nice too. in my opinion Dread Moon is somehow quite unfitting. "Apocalypse moon" is good, but it does not sound deadly enough somehow XD, maybe it's because the word 'Apocalypse' is overused, it loses it's touch.

How about "Mortis Imperium" meaning: Death Sentence

But then again, since it seems that this is luna's unit, i think it's best if we stick the unit's name with something more... moon-ish??? if you want to of course.

:iconfoxi-5:
Foxi-5 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012
Yep moon-ish is good. Mortis Imperium is a fantastic name for a cannon or large gun.
