Well, I decided to colour both versions after all. It's not something I'll be doing again any time soon. This is the MDG Culverin with weapons deployed. The weapons stored version can be found here - [link]
I hope to start working on the wallpaper soon so as to keep with the rest of the MDG series. The WIP name/class of the Culverin is a Multi-Limb Battleship. Similar to a Mobile Armour from Gundam, the Culverin is much larger in size to other mecha like the Phantom [link]
or Archer [link]
& would sport a name similar to a ship. While more than a match for any mech already in survice, the primary role of this particular design is to hide amongst asteroid or debris fields and attack shipping lines, base ships & other larger support craft, similar to a WWII submarine. Most space bound mecha launch from and require base ships where as the Culverin is a ship onto itself despite it's appearances.
