Western Mechs showcase

The “West” has been influenced by anime for years when it comes to Mecha – Just a gander at how Battletech took Macross (Robotech) designs and created a fully unique, militaristic setting for them to live in. In this post, we explore some of the mech designs shared here in Artlords by artists all around the world.

Titan And Pilot by Mac Rebisz

The ‘Titanfall’ design philosophy is to make the Mechs a “giant soldier”, with its own guns and concepts. “Armoured Infantry” being piloted by super pilots themselves.

The “Weird War” tank with legs is a design that keeps cropping up in western designs, with entire game universes orbiting around that concept.
