WHM-6R Warhammer
As from FASA's Technical Readout 3025 "Because of its size and weaponry, the WHM-6R Warhammer is one of the most dangerous and powerful 'Mechs ever placed in the field." Armed with twin Particle Projection Cannons, two Laser/Machine Gun clusters and a Short Range Missile Pack would you really want to look for one?
About this creation


My previous MOCs have been transformers but, I wanted to dive into something else for a short time. Battletech. I remember when the game first came out and was played on a hex map with cardboard images for the 'Mechs. Of course, once they started making the figurines I had to buy them. My favorite? The big guy right here. It could pound on other 'Mechs at any range and still had average speed for a heavy 'Mech. I hope you enjoy this and let me know what you think.



All right. You got my attention. Now what...?



A simple frontal view of the 'Mech walking. I designed the legs so the feet and knees bent and twisted for greater posability, although I really didn't show that.



I tried to get a closeup of the torso but, I got too close and the picture got blurry.



Side view.



Rear view.



Some of the posability.



Same pose from above at a different angle.



A close up of a PPC. I used the turrent from a pirate ship cannon for the muzzle. The only drawback is the mounting pins. Yes, I have contemplated filing them off on the two I used.



Here's the Mechwarrior, wearing a blue and white cooling vest, standing in front of his trusty instrument of destruction.



I managed to get a decent shot of the inside of the cockpit. I would have loved to get a picture from inside the cockpit looking out but, that would require some disassembly and I wasn't feeling like doing that at the time.



My inspiration... I built that model when I was about 12 years old. Technically it was a Robotech model set that was a repair facility and also came with an armored Veritech or Battletech Crusader, whichever you wish to call it.

The construction of the repair facility is underway. Or, at least my own variant of it. My only fear is that I may run out of pieces as it will have to be huge to accomodate the Warhammer and I do plan on building another 'Mech as well for it. What I have left after the Warhammer and the building will determine my direction on that.

Quoting Simon Kicks This is a seriously impressive piece of work. :) What was the most serious problem that you had to overcome in it's construction? I find many of my MOC's have a nasty tendency to be quite top-heavy. But I digress, this is Awesome! :D
Thanks. The hardest part was actually designing the feet. The back half pivots indepedently from the front. Top heaviness can be an issue but, can be slightly offset by a couple things: Center of gravity, as mentioned by Chris Roach in the comments on my Unicron, which tended to lean backward. Ratchet joints vice ball joints add some resistance to unwanted torso movement.

Quoting Matty Mason It seems my comment didn't get through, for some reason, no evil in it whatsoever..... Anyway, very nice rendition, I'd like to see my new Mad Cat take this on, should be interesting...
Thanks and no worries. The joys of the internet, huh? I think toe to toe, an Inner Sphere Warhammer would have a tough time against a heavier Mad Cat. That's why I built the Locust too. However, then there's also the issue with the Elementals...

Quoting Michael Crichton Nice trick with the cannons. :-)
Thanks. I figured, with the exception of the pins, that would look better than using the nose cones and 016 bricks with the cross hole. Besides, it also makes the design original.

Quoting ThunderT0D :) I never played Battle Tech, but this is rather awesome! I like how you built the legs.
Thanks. I have some red lighted bricks I thought about building into the arm PPCs, but they would turned out too bulky and I have another idea for them with the repair facility.

Quoting Chris Phipson How can this not have any comments yet? The Warhammer was always one of my favs as well when I played back in the day (as well as the Timberwolf and Marauder). Nice reproduction you did here! ~ Chris.
Maybe they're not Warhammer fans? Don't know. Anyhow, thank you for the compliment.
