Haven't been able to work on this much, but I think I've got enough to start modeling from. There's still some more detail stuff I want to think on, but I'd like to go ahead with roughing some stuff out in 3d now.
Here's a quick backstory too:
The army of the greentooth honors its dead - that is, when they are actually allowed to die. Ages ago, sometime after the first dominance war, the army began to ‘repurpose’ its fallen generals and heroes and prolong their lives even after death or debilitating injuries - enabling them to continue fighting. Often the bodies of the fallen were too badly mutilated to effectively continue fighting without prosthetic aid. That’s when the Legion of the Metal Fist was created. A new mechanized army sustained and fueled by the technology of war, driven by the combat prowess and fighting spirit of the army’s greatest heroes. Replacing meat with machinery, and AI patched into the savage soul of a warrior, the fallen are given a new lease on destruction - one that can last for millennia, or until they are obliterated.
Killian BanHammer is one such fallen, having centuries ago been rendered limb from limb on the battlefield and unable to fight, his military achievements and prowess in battle could not be left to waste. He was revived, and placed in a new (in those days) Ground Pounder X1 mech body and unleashed back into the war. In this new form he has achieved several lifetimes worth of victories and caused untold levels of devastation across hundreds of worlds.
Ground Pounders are fast moving mobile infantry ‘suits’ capable of running into battle from a distance. Armed with long range mortars on their backs they bombard strategic targets from a distance then rush in and clean up with their favored weapons. Killian’s weapons of battle include a nuclear powered battle hammer, and 2 twin mounted machine guns in each arm.
