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.

Lyra's Mech -> Lyrian Brawler (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.
Foxi-5 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2013
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. ;)
