G.U.N mecha: Palidan redesign by zeiram0034 G.U.N mecha: Palidan redesign by zeiram0034
More or less, a complete overhaul of my original G.U.N mecha I had posted a while back.

Original version: [link]

Originally I didn't have a name for the unit type but I feel the name paladin applies nicely to the design. ^_^

color wise I wanted to spice it up a bit by adding a urban camouflage pattern to it's exterior to add a bit more realism and to also try out some new painting techniques.

Nothing much was changed with the armament save for the addition of a back mounted grenade launcher that is more akin to a MK19 grenade launcher in terms of firepower.

Was thinking of adding a type of close range weapon as well but given the overall design it's more suited for long to mid-range combat. Also to increase mobility I redesigned the heels of the feet to support wheel like gliding foils to allow it to move very quickly across the battlefield. (in terms of movement it is akin to a standard knightmare frame from the code geass anime series)


enjoy :)

Awesome concept! I suppose this is the successor to Diablon from Shadow the Hedgehog.

A mecha for G.U.N. of the Sonicverse? I can see a Resemblance, but I wouldn't have called this specific design after the Paladin. It seems too heavily armored with artillery grade weapons... but if those were just 'attachments' so it was more all around and have the standard gear be the rifle, a riot shield and some kind of sword weapon then HELL yes I'd call that a Paladin. Love to see something new and different from fellow Sonic fans and not just 'fan art' of Canon Characters.

Work on this guy, I'd love to feature it in a story if you dont mind. XD

The 'Front Mission' influence is obvious, but this is still a really cool design!

I like this better than the original. This one looks less clunky, and the rifle isn't overly large, and thus allowing for more freedom and mobility in its actions. It is also a smaller target. Overall it seems bettor for combat, and I can picture these "Palidans" causing trouble in large groups.

Very well done!

Nice, I really like your GUN mech designs. :) They always look so cool, and tough/badass. (If you'll excuse that term.) Nice one here, and I like the textures, and text you put on him. Nice glowing effects, and attention to detail.
