Elefant Decapod by flaketom Elefant Decapod by flaketom
Another one which was sitting around half finished for a year on my hard drive.
Only needs a proper insect name! :D
Oh and thanks to ROb for his crits and comments.

The Elefant tank destroyer refitted with legs for :iconrob-cavanna:'s Operation Dragonslayer
 Probably that's the last of the German casematte-style walkers I have done, cause I am through with most of them flaketom.deviantart.com/art/Co… and I should definitely do some allied TDs or SPGs.

Anyhow, happy I could post some stuff, because it's been ages since my last post.
And as always hope you like, download is recommended and I am happy about whatever comment!

Old Game. I don't think they have made a new one in years.... *checks wiki*

.....

Last one that was made was "Armored Core: Verdict Day" in 2013. Its available for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Sir if may ask, how did you done this one? I mean the Model building and Cell-shading renders,, what kind of programs maybe?
Reply
:iconflaketom:
flaketom Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014
All done in Sketchup. The modelling as well as the rendering.
Just hid all the outlines of the background and gave it the same color...
Hope that helps, if not  sorry for that and don't hesitate to ask again :)

Having played games like Mech Warrior and Armored Core, and also having one of these Tank Destroyers in World of Tanks, this is just plain awesomeness on so many levels.

Most excellent work.

How about "Schröter"? It's German for stag beetle.
Great design, anyway!

Sounds very cool to me. Schröter it is then! Thanks for the great suggestion. :thanks:

Just had a look and saw that stag beetle is Schröter, Feuerschröter or Hornschröter. The two last ones I like even more!
Reply
:iconrob-cavanna:
Rob-Cavanna Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014
Feuerschröter and Hornschröter also sound very cool. Big TD seems like it deserves a big German name. I'm leaning towards Hornschröter.

So Horn it shall be. :D

:iconbrandzai:
Brandzai Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Personally I went with just plain Schröter on purpose, because it only has 2 syllables; roles off the tongue more easily :)
Reply
:iconflaketom:
flaketom Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2014
Rolls off easier, but reminds me too much of the surname Schröder. And with the Horn or Feuer in front of it it has a more beast like sound...

You're welcome, and don't forget: the umlaut alone gives it 43% extra oomph...
