I worked on an Iron Harvest inspired mech earlier during March of robots.
I went with the narrative of "What if in an alternate historical timeline Germany used mechs in World War 1". This setting informed my design choice of which armaments the mech would theoretically used when designing it.
I knew I wanted to compose a scene that was grim and gritty with atmosphere that often comes with photos from WW1 but also Warhammer 40k.
The mech has a basic rig for posing. Soldier model is *not my work* but rather purchased asset that I re-textured and posed to fit with the mech.
