Shrike by Jamz671 Shrike by Jamz671
Decided to try creating a light armored Mech designed for close range combat. I call this unit Shrike. I couldn't help it, I had to give it a big sword lol.

Reminds me of the flag mobile suit from Gundam 00

I really like the Upper half of the Mech, very solid and Harmonious. However I think the legs could use a little re-working. Try implementing the design of arms onto the legs. You'd be surprised how often it works for the better; Arms and legs are like brothers, similar but different.)

Hey thanks for the comment. Appreciate the suggestion. I may eventually get back on it. I do feel it's rather unfinished.

lol another Shrike... I had a character I developed back in my high skewl days named Shrike... I've seen a few others use it for their various creations, too... the entire time I thought I was being creative, and it turns out a Shrike is a type of bird, so it actually fits really well in this case :D

Anyways, excellent design, I like the setup! Stick some fat thrusters and a rifle/shotty combo on this badboy and you're ready for war!

have you ever heard of Dan Simmons? Since I've read his novel "Hyperion" I have only one strong association with name "Shrike"
