StoBzahn Drei assault wanzer by IgnusDei StoBzahn Drei assault wanzer by IgnusDei
The StoBzhan Drei is an assault wanzer equipped with a communication and control suite which includes (but does not consist exclusively of) a multi-lasercomm array mounted on the head. Its design caters to the commander who prefers to lead from the front.

Based on a Numsekar pic with some Vyzoz elements thrown in along with an assault loadout. The reason this is such a derivative is because i needed some practice. I'm going for something original next.

For those who have no idea what i'm talking about, play the Front Mission games.

Update: did some blemish control, altered the paintjob a bit.

....a-Achoo-T1-brutal-wolf-render-when?.... Owh sorry, bless u.

Hmm... A numsekar captain antenna then. Tho i wouldn't hope much action from the rifle arm. Great art, detailed trim, revolutionary coloring, especially if one could've hoped to implement this camo/paint on FM3-5 (as fans owez do)...

I think that wanzer skipped leg day tho. Lynn taisa will get furious, u know....

this looks as good or better than the official Front mission artwork.

Effn' eh, I loved these mecha designs. Front Mission 3 still stands out as the best there is. Can't wait to find time to try out 5 with the english mods ^^

Do the rocket tubes by the head represent a body-mounted rocket launcher, or are they for show? I love internal weapons.

Given that Numsekar and Vyzov aren't german-make, maybe this is a licensed aftermarket contract? It's giving me ideas :3

I really like the legs, though at first I thought you borrowed the shins from Uisk. The head is intimidating, almost like a lion.

those are intakes, actually. figured the engine would need some extra cooling while the wanzer was in boost mode. also, i really need to review the machines' backstories :)

Front Mission FTW!

Great job on this. Looks like it might as well have been concept art for the games. You've got some talent.

Wow, the finished version just blows my mind. I wish I had the time to play through the Front Mission games, they are exactly the kind of games that I enjoy. My friend had it once, so I do understand the concept haha. Got to love the appeal of mech games eh? Front Mission was great from what I saw, and Armoured Core was a good one too.

Reminds me of the armor described in Heinlien's Starship Troopers. Commanders had better armored suits with advanced communications arrays. Recon have faster, but light armored, and longer range. While Troopers have the basic well rounded model. Nice job!

Nice color scheme, I like the right fist, and that jackhammer thingie. The gun looks definetly better than the one you posted in art spam on reric forums.

Also, Landraider crotch ^^

Excellent job, I am a big fan of the series (and own all the mecha models) and you truly capture the design style perfectly.

Not only that, but your derivative is great looking and has a nice color scheme to boot. Well done sir, well done.

Front mission fanart FTW! I've been playing the DS release. God, when the AI gets egrets... i dunno what I'm going to do!

Anyway, great piece, very fun to look at. It's good reference for shading.

i say the gun would have high muzzle and kickbacks when fired becuz of its center of gravity

Wow, nice rendition of the Numsekar. The head, though, does remind me of the Uisk(Jammer-class wanzers as of FM5) and its' derivatives. Still better than the old Numsekar head. :D

aaah, good ol' Zenith. it's practically the poster mech of the series. It'd look awesome rendered in PS3 hardware. Think they'll ever make a 6th?

Yep! Loved that wanzer when I first started playing FM4, and 5 furthered that love(although I have to dig through hard mode to get its' derivatives).

The FM team, from what I heard, wants to do an FM6, but Square wants them to help with the Final Fantasy over-exposure first. So now we're stuck with Nintendo DS remakes, Border of Madness being the latest. :D

Check out [link] . There's an version 1 English patch for FM5 if you're interested.

yeah, i'm planning on getting everything i need to play that mod, but it might be a while. hopefully by the time i do, the patch will have been completed, or will at least have the subtitles translated.
