CRD-XK Crusader by AceDarkfire CRD-XK Crusader by AceDarkfire
Some things may be changed a little bit, just for improvements sake, but it is otherwise final.

I didn't work out a configuration for this, so there's nothing to describe it, other than it's a replacement for the Reseen Version, of which the artist, in my "humble" opinion, laughed all the way to the bank over.

Nice job!
I see you are fan of Crusader. So am I. It was very pleasant to see so many faces of this mech in your gallery.
But as I am 3025 Classic BT fan, my favorite one is CRD-3K :)
Keep up a good work!

The Crusader, up until the Reseen version, has been my favorite Heavy 'Mech. I like trying to figure out ways to get around any lawsuit actions - dropping into the XK version here guarantee's that 100%.

Though I am going to redraw it, primarily for visual improvement.

I doubt anyone can apply a lawsuit action to a fanart ;) I think you may freely draw whatever you wish :)
Crus rules!

If the RIAA can get some poor woman to cough up $80,000 per MP3 downloaded (80,000% increase in the actual MP3 value), anything's possible.

Honestly, I'd like to get my Mech Artwork noticed by the TPTB for BattleTech, and maybe we can get rid of those jokers who did the Reseen 'Mechs. (Some look good, but the quality... a lot of them look WAY too Anime-ish, even the original Unseens with the way they were drawn looked LESS anime-ish in comparison - DO NOT get me started on the Reseen Stone Rhino/Behemoth).

Personally I'd bring up all the reseen designs alongside with nearly all designs after 3055 in a big pile, and burn it all to hell.. That's my personal opinion :ahoy:
New designs mostl lack imagination and style is their weakest point. As for reseen, they are even more awful, as we can compare them to what they were before.
I pray to every power possible for Jordan Weisman to put Harmony Gold on their place or somewhere near that so that we could finally see the new Mechwarrior game with all classic BT mechs in their full. I so much hope to see _REAL_ Warhammer, Marauder, Phoenix-Hawk, Griffin and many other mechs and of course - Crusader!

This is defiantly a winner, easily puts my own past attempts at the Crusader to shame.

Yeah, I went through the solaris 7 gallery to find the image for the reseen version... I have to agree. The reseen looks totally half-assed. This version is easily better.

Yeah, I have an extreme "dislike" of many of the reseen designs. As noted by Sideline, the banks come to these kids because the drawings are so "epicly awesome."

Honestly, to me, MY work looks half-assed. If (and it's certain, actually) the Reseen drawings are half-assed, and my artwork is half-assed, that divides up that craptacular Reseen artwork some sort of fraction I don't want to work out.

Well, your reseen concepts are a million times better than FASA's

actually the reseen Crusader was such a "quality product" , that I suspect that the bank came to the artist ;)

Hah! I didn't consider looking at it that way.

A lot of the Reseen are like that, and it's rather sad when you think about it. The Reseen Warhammer fits that bill, it looks... strange at worst and complete crap at best.

I seriously think a lot of the guys who did the Project Phoenix Designs were high on crack, pot and meth and sleeping while doing them up.

There are a few good ones out of the Reseen, like the Ostsol, BattleMaster, Valkyrie and Archer, but most of them were "bleh," of the 'Mechs I didn't like throughout all the years of TRO's without the Classic designs, even the crappiest in that bunch look infinitely better than most of the Reseen Redesigns.
