Magna Equis - DA Jaeger Contest Entrant
Stationed just outside of Westminster, Maryland at the converted municipal airport. 

        The Equis model is what happens when it's decided that having thousands of tons of machine airlifted over or near the DC capital air corridor.  With air lift weight out the window the Equis was produced as a three pilot Jaeger weighing more than 3 times the mass of the old Cherno Alpha models.  Despite that it has the highest straight-line speed recorded in a non-custom Jaeger.  This unit and it's 6 sister machines use this speed and criss-crossing jaeger corridors to respond all along the Maryland and Virginia coastline against kaiju and rogue jaegers alike.
        In combat this forward leaning speed it put behind the right arm weapon and the Magna Equis will make devastating charges into enemy targets.  If it succeeds in landing a deeply piercing blow the second weapon feature will be activated and thousands of gallons of highly combustible rocket fuel will spill from multiple high pressure nozzles all over the lance.  This same rocket fuel is often used with multiple rocket motor mounts to either disengage rapidly upon an unsuccessful strike, or attack with even greater velocity than what's provided by the four legged chassis.  The jaeger also carries 4 converted US Navy main caliber deck guns in rear mounts.  Should the Equis need to engage at range.  These and most of the metal of the Equis machines were reclaimed by the Bethlehem Jaeger Yards when they were decommissioning much of the US fleet in response the their ineffective nature against kaiju.
        Other unique systems of the Magna Equis jaegers include:  Hardened and ruggedized control systems,  body mounted defensive torch rocket motors, and a full head ejection system with a semi-controllable para-wing mounted in the defensive crest.

In the foreground is the converted remains of the Sherwood Whiskey Smokestack and glass house.  Now serving as a high end restaurant a stone's throw away from the main rail-head in the city.  Where this unit is waiting, with a police presence,  to make a grand reception for an incoming VIP.

Comm: Solaris Sudden Death
Commissioned battletech universe scene.  Just another Saturday warmup match in the arenas on Solaris.  While the Jenner is a fearsome and capable light machine, it's unlikely to hold up against a machine with more moeny, sponsors, and thus customized equipment, on it's side.

Comm: Dropship Preparations
Commissioned battletech universe scene.  Inside the confined spaces of a medium to small dropship the lethal payload walks itself aboard and gets put into their cradles.  This either being done on a planet or under the effects of thrust driven micro-gravity.  But the inside of most dropships are prepared for mechs possibly having to operate under their own power in 0gravity, with all structural "safe" points marked and highlighted.  Often with handle-like features to help even further in such situations.  Most of it, the decking, ladders, and stables, are completely modular and able to be reconfigured by a loadmaster with a remote and a couple hands in power loaders.

Comm: Clan 2nd Line Defenders
Commissioned battletech scene.  Meanwhile back on the clan homeworlds, two secondline machines like these, are left to deal with the anger of IS attacking forces.

Comm: Entering Orbit
Commissioned BT universe warship piece.  Two warships making a non-aggressive entrance into stable orbits.  Their lighter dropships relying less on astromechanics and more on their thrusters to make earlier approaches to the space station in the background and planet further on.

Per usual, thank you all for the watches, likes, favorites, and comments.  I've been having a great time making stompin robots.

As some who have inquired have found out, and also some of my commissioners, I've not been adding any more commissions onto my post-it pile.  I had planned to lift that sometime mid or end of May.  Sorry/happy to say that looks like it's going to be pushed back till the end of June.

Moving is just never a good time for juggling pro work and all the other stuff.  I'll certainly post something here again when that changes, and you can always feel free to poke me as that time approaches or passes.  

If you already have a post-it stuck to the side of my PC, and you should know who you are, you are still in the line and your commissions will be worked before I am buried under boxes and bubblewrap.

Great gallery.

I love your line art!
Especially the Battletech stuff! (Can't wait for the new game)

Would you mind if I use some to practice digital colouring, and upload it with credit to you?
mattPLOG Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2018

thanks for the kind words.  You can certainly take stuff down from my gallery for practice.  But, since the vast majority of it is commission work and watermarked I can't really give you leave to repost it.  It simply doesn't belong to me in those rights.  I think.  Either way I'd feel my commissioners would appreciate me minding that for them.

Best of luck in all your efforts.

Thank you mP, I completely understand.
I shall keep any that I work on, for my own improvement only, and not upload them anywhere.
Thank you for taking the time to consider and respond, I look forward to more of your work!
