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.

thanks ^^ I figured a camo paint job rather then a solid would look more interesting from a visual standpoint :)

badass design there man. I'm getting a cross vibe between Votoms and Front Mission with this mecha. As for a close range weapon, I think a flip-out combat knife on the arm would be good, or maybe something similar to a pile bunker, kinda like the Alteisen's revolver stake from "Super Robot Wars Original Generations". [link] Hopefully this will help you out. Keep up the awesome work dude!

thank you ^^

And yes, Votoms and Front mission were my biggest influences when coming up with the design, though I also took a few design elements from the knightmares from code geass as well. ^^

Also I was playing around with the idea of including a melee weapon built into the shied but never got around to it. Maybe when I do up another pic of the paladin I'll include that detail :)

Thanks for the reference and glad you liked how it came out. ^^

Great drawing man :)
I like how "official" it looks. If the police where to pilot mecha/Ravens or something...I bet they'd look like this :)

Thanks, I was trying to go for a more realistic look with the subdued colors and non stylish but functional design of the mech itself.

Remembering the Gun Mecha units in Sonic adventure I hope these at least try to protect the cockpit from flying furry balls of animalistic death!

This redesign has a ton more armor then the units from the games. Though even with the additional protection and fire power it doesn't amount to much if you can't hit your target while it's traveling at sub sonic speeds. ^^

Call me crazy, but that looks like an Armored Core unit that someone can create.

Still looks great though. :)

Actually I had based it more off the look of the wanzers from the front mission series but all the same, thanks for the compliments :)

Wanzers, eh? Never played a Front Mission game before, but it sounds like I should. :)
