I like the Battletech world but I am a lover of the vehicles and air machines.
I was introduced to the Battletech world when long before the internet existed, I had to make do with sci-fi from books (NEVER A BAD THING!!!) and one of those universes that took me away from reality was the Battletech Tech Manual 3025.
I loved most of the vehicles in that but of all of them, the ultimate darling to me is the Manticore.
Yes, its not a mech, yes its no match to them, and so forth, but it looks SO good, SO tank!
To me this vehicle just struck me as SO war machine. I love the LRM housing above the turret, the boxy shape.
Of course this is not like the drawing in the book, I just did a spin on it but retain all its lovely features.
So I whipped up this battle scene of Steiner owned (these tanks were mainly in Steiner and Kuritan armies) Manticores going on the offensive with a pair of LCF-R15 Lucifer Medium fighters giving air cover.
