Hmmm... obviously not a Stiener scouting lance. Not enough Atlases.

Yesterday in MWLL my team had a bit of a runaway game. We had several lances of Atlas, Awesome, and Fafnirs while the enemy fed us small groups of medium mechs :D

Just a thought for the future... any energy beam capable of vaporizing tissue like that would probably cause the body to explode. Flesh and blood gets converted to steam instantly. The effect of the expanding gases would be like an explosive device going off in your internal organs.

Wow. Very nicely done. Poor guy in the front right there, not only has the Mongoose shot him, but it looks like the Assassin is about to step on him too.

Always loved the Mongoose, I can't tell for sure, but is that a Steiner fist crest on the Valkyrie?

Have to say I've never done BT power armor, at least not for many years, would be fun to do if it's part of a commission.

Hey man cheers for commissioning Anthony. Its great to see these designs, especially since many are old and traditional Mechs. I was working towards a Vulcan if I get my core set finished, but it was a long ways off. :P

Awesome, thanks! I'm an old 3025 guy myself, so I always love it when the older designs are used. Cheers!

I played 3028 in Australia and its amazing how easy it was to memorize all the weapon stats! It just comes naturally! Hope you could see some of the other oldie moldy goldies from our site by Anthony and David White. I'll take a look round your profile to see if I can scrounge up any info on your storyline. :D

The storyline won't be on my dA profile, it's on a Wordpress Blogsite. I run a BattleTech Campaign in the year 3044 (well, now 3045) for a group of MechWarriors. Check it out!

Very cool. Its good to find your site! Looks like you have some pretty intense house rules on the experience system. Do you play MechWarrior too (rpg I mean?) I incorporated some extra rules when I was in Australia but they were way simple. If you need help with Wordpress let me know. I know a few things about fixing the picture dimensions if you want to change any of them. :D Very cool site and looking forward to seeing more info as your campaign continues. Sounds like the Banshee Hunters are a group of bad boys.

If you're interested, I haven't ironed out a good concept for a commission, but here's the Battle Armor I had in mind. If you don't like the subject matter, I can choose something else (or you can pick something more to your liking). I'd rather be flexible on something like this xD

Silly engineers, though I'd say the Assassin still has pretty good overall vision, if just bad ground vision.

Yeah, the legs are pretty funky. Drop that ugly little ball-body on top of that and it makes the Urbie look good.
