Relic of a War Gone By by ModalMechanica Relic of a War Gone By by ModalMechanica
HEY GUYS WANT MOAR TEXTURE? *D

This was mainly just practice, i was gonna paint it in my usual method, but I tried something different this time, this: [link] was heavy inspiration in the colouring. I may end up doing another version of it in the future.

Design wise, its a quad mecha tank thing with manipulator arms, and some sort of auto cannon as its main armament. The mechanic is rather pissed at his assignment, but happy I think that he has it working at least.

Critique highly appreciated! O:

A few explosive rockets could probably take out one or two legs of that mecha tank..
Looks good though.

He means it is "pathetic" because the war wasnt held on on equal terms. Both of the countries weren't even able to defend themselves against the co-operating invaders on both occasions, the world were deceived that the atacked nations were the bad guys. On terms of Iraq, USA proclaimed that Iraq were holding nuke bombs with the "intel" they supposedly had from secret service. They didnt showed the data to the publicity at all anyhow, just proclaiming there "is" somewhere some nuke. The international nuclear research community were researching whole Iraq while USA declared a supprise atack on Iraq. After the research team has come back to EU they declared to the media that they didnt found even the basic trace of any radioactivity, even the less any nukes.After the combined assault from USA and Britain and some other EU countries, the whole story turned out to be a lie to the core. Same thing goes for Afghanistan too, you just have to research a bit... well it is really pathetic that countries who doesnt have the tech are beaten up from a gang of murderous greedy gankers. That shows actually that "human rights" are just for those who got the bombs for it, and others have the honor to be the cannonfodder for it.

@zelptheking ;Well facing the truth is not allways sugar eating. If it doesnt taste your way, then you may just accept the fact but you cant act as an ignorant and then call yourself righteous anymore.

And besides it is not my "view" about Iraq is the "truth" about Iraq. Of course its not shown on your media, coz your governments dont want to look like a bunch of murderous crusading gang but that still doesnt change the fact they actually "are", because they just do things that way that some rich bastards can exploit the rich underground reserves on the given areas. I even dont mention the tactical advantage of having an outpost on those regions to consolidate the military might over the region that in further times countries who "might get a problem" for the future ambitions.

My point is quite easily proven by the main "cause" of the NATO right now, they say NATO has changed their way to "fight terrorism globalwide" but the only thing the US and EU is doing is actually "supporting" the terrorism behind the curtains, because it helps their cause a lot.Who do they support? well the Kurdish terror organisation named PKK is being supported more than 30 years for this cause, those terrorists has murdered now about 60.000 people till now, but somehow the EU and US didnt wanted that the leader of PKK was sentenced to death and hanged for his crime. But oh Usame Bin Laden who was actually trained and mentored by CIA itself has been killed on spot because people in USA wouldnt be satisfied when he would live till his last breath in some prison isnt it? Hypocrites to the core arent we?

the textures make it look like worn-out kevlar, or possibly some kind of corrugated/ribbed plating.
Very nice touch, gives it age and experience- and gives that mechanic a whole world of problems lol
