Armatures and mechs?

is there a tutorial on how to setup armatures to animate a mech. like from battletech.

It would be the same as any other character. Only with a mech, you will have more mechanical movements, (i.e. in 1 or 2 axis only - like on the leg). Will be less fluid and heavier movements as well.
