Timber Wolf by Punakettu Timber Wolf by Punakettu
A major update to the model. Must be at least the 4th iteration to date. I estimate around an 80% rebuild this time. This render shows the model as it was seen in "Path to Terra"

Of course at that time it still didn't have the current modified legs. I highly recommend you download the full image.


Timber Wolf is one of the most recognizable symbols in BattleTech and in the MechWarrior series. This emblematic Mech is the symbol of the Clan Invasion of 3050.

Astounding!!!!! I would really like to talk to you about this amazing render. I am thinking about a project and I know your input would be invaluable to its success.

Just out of curiousity, what do you use for reference material (if anything)? I would very much like to make a few scale model clan mechs with hydraulic actuation and computer control, but I don't really have any schematics or scale diagrams of any sort to base my designs on, besides pictures like this, screenshots from MechWarrior games, and pictures of miniatures.

There's an abundance of official artwork that I use for reference. If there is a schematic available for a mech then that's an excellent place to start. (All of the original 3050 clan mechs have front and side line drawings.) Sometimes taking a look at what other people have done with a particular mech is a good source for ideas. Sometimes all you have is one poorly drawn black and white picture.

Either way I always make the mechs look the way I want them to no matter what the original artwork looks like. If something looks better different then I make it so. That's a good thing to remember because what is the point of simply replicating something someone else has already made? Be yourself as an artist is my motto.

Yes, I've noticed the prevalence of those poorly drawn black and white pictures... *cough Marauder IIC cough* I would very much like to create some hydraulically actuated 5 foot tall-ish models (in the stead of having advanced myomer technologies) but I find I have very little to base my designs on scale wise, motor function wise, etc. I suppose in the end I will end up creating most of the design specifications myself.

Really though, you are right. There isn't anything wrong with introducing personal creativity and judgement into already established designs. That's good advice, thank you.

it is sad that battletech wont let mechwarrior use the models anymore and thus the problem with mechwarrior 5's release.

It's not battletech actually it's harmonry gold. They aren't allowing mechwarrior to use the warhammer, rifleman, or marauder in the game.
