LCT-1V Locust (My version) by Colourbrand LCT-1V Locust (My version) by Colourbrand
This is my version of the LCT-1V Locust Battlemech; the original machine is in fact a direct copy of the security robots Ostalls from Crusher Joe. One reason the design just did not work for me. SO I redesigned the mech whilst following the specs of the machine, making it look like a machine a human could pilot.

Am very proud of the cockpit and its details came out.

Like to hear your thoughts .

There's something about this that I can't put my finger on. It's got heavy hints of the unseen Locust but just as much of a new take on this venerable SLDF era design.

Oh wait I know what it is... It's the fact I've been working a similar redesign using the old style legs and hips with a new style cockpit for our LCT-6S Locust. LOL.

Similarities aside, great work Chris. I do like this. It even looks like it has a BAP on the back though the 1V lacks such gear it's the kind of thing it should have.

Glad you went old school for the look, I'm not a fan of the new reseen torso. :D

I think the "new version" makes no sense.

I find that many of the mechs in BT defy how. I wanted to design a mech that you can see where the person sits, how it functions, and so forth. The BT rip off is sad; this (trying NOT to blow my own trumpet) is more how I envison the Locust; small, simple, and vulnerable.

Err what the dickens is a BAP?

That was my thinking too, small spindly and vulnerable the armour on any Locust is paper thin and even a well trained squad of PBI can tear one apart with ease. the new version just does not work, which is why our 6S takes cues from the unseen version, it just has nastier weapons and some funky gear. :evillaugh:

BAP = Bloodhound Active Probe.

Oh wait, sorry it's Beagle Active Probe for those of you still stuck in the technological dark ages that exist outside Jerome Blake's divine guidance :D

AH right - nah, just a sensor cluster, before they made certain sensor and electronic suites "extra special".

Personally speaking, this would be better as a sentry mech, than a scout; there are better, quieter ways to spy on one's enemy than with something like this....

"Oh wait, sorry it's Beagle Active Probe for those of you still stuck in the technological dark ages that exist outside Jerome Blake's divine guidance!" HAW HAW HAW - you and your ComStar buddies :)

She does actualy make quite a good scout for her age, she's a venrable unit now sadly outmatched by almost anything. Something our 6S addresse.

Comstar - rememeber it could be worse. It could be a highly magnetically overcharged PPC. ;P

This Locust just looks cooler than the original! It's tougher, with more character. I love the little details in the cockpit and the colors you use for it. It's alluring - makes me think that the windshield is made out of sapphire or something! =P
Would really like to have one of these for daily travelling and for going to work.

Ditto - I mean the 'original' I never liked nor did it make sense to its abilities.

I think the window detail is superb too :D

Thank you sir always for your great support :)
