Some of you may remember seeing something similar in Mechwarrior 2. ;)

I really like paying homage to those memorable scenes in the old classics we all grew up with.

MW2 best game in history! [though that could just be rose tinting since it was one of the first games I ever played XD]

They kindof look like Halo4 Mantisis( spelled that wrong) but they are still pretty cool

OMG, I'm young again.
I still remember music in Wolf clan hall (I liked them more than Falcon clan). I even remember some battles, that was so long ago, I can write memoirs "Once we were pilots"...

This is absolutely gorgeous. But I am a Wolf myself. Is there any chance of us seeing you recreate the Wolf equivalent anytime in the near future? Bonus points if you use the Timberwolf. (Best damn mech in existence, in my opinion. ;) )

Reminds me of the menu for the tutorials, but that had a Mad Dog (though this or a Summoner is more appropriate since they are the Falcons signature heavies)

The only difference from the old scene I noticed was that it was a Mad Dog (Vulture) that was outside waiting for you instead of a Hellbringer (Loki). Aside from that, the scene is almost identical to the one in my memory of Meacwarrior 2: 31st Century Combat.

Would you make a Thor pic like this but for a diffrent Clan?:P

Maybe. Thor is however mostly used by Jade Falcons too. What clan did you have in mind?

XiaoDiamaoh Featured By Owner May 22, 2010
True they were used by Jade Falcon, but how about Smoke Jaguar
with rows with medium mechs behind it? (I know its too much, but it would be cool:P)

Ha-ha...this is amazing. :"] Your art is a wonderful refresher on the eyes, and considering this kind of environment was my /FAVORITE/ 'Mech battlefield, this makes it even more cool.

Way to go, dude. :"] Your work looks doubly amazing with these detailed, pretty backgrounds. Then again, I learned that myself in 3D. xD

Awesome job. C:
