BattleMechs / Mauler MAL-ZG
« Last post by Black_Knyght on Today at 20:20:55 »
The Mauler MAL-ZG is the personal battlemech of Lieutenant Zebulon Grant, second in command of the Black Knights' Assault Company. Grant never truly liked the Mauler MAL-1R he received as a replacement for his destroyed Banshee BNC-3S while under contract to the Draconis Combine. Over time Grant has significantly upgraded his replacement Mauler by removing much of it's original weaponry and heat sinks, and utilizing available captured Clan weaponry and heat sink technology on it instead. Zebulon Grant also increased the amount of standard armor his Mauler carries, improving it's overall protection by almost half again over what it originally carried.

NOTE: This battlemech has NOT been optimized to it's fullest potential within the rules! It has simply been modified over time to the player's specifications as a replacement for his lost Banshee, using the resources, materials, and equipment that were available to him and the Battalion at the time.

Since we have so few details on the blood spirit naval arm do we think they would have fielded these?

My condolences go out to his family also. However, since I have never met him either and there are three people seen in the above links picture, which one was he?
Man, this is a blast from the past.  Xerxes one those fighters that puts the fright in any sane warship crew, especially when their coming in full stars.

This article was written 13 years ago (originally)!  Wow. The advice and analysts Trace Coburn gave rings true to day.
IMHO nothing would be better than electronicising Total Warfare and TechManual and making some halfway decent sprite graphics to go with it. We all live faster lives now. Digital media is not the future, its the now; minis and tabletop has nowhere to go but down.

I think a semi-electronic system will be the future for tabletop games. Think that new Dungeons and Dragons thing. But it won't... shouldn't replace physical table. Online play is not quite the same as local play, and never will be.
Sorry to hear that also AW.

However, I start a new job next Monday.

Was there any shooting/harsh language, etc.?

Wow, that's great find. 

The Hercules, Anvil Anv-3m, and the Dart Drt-3S were extremely hard to find when i was looking for them 5 years ago.  Especially the Anvil.  Great find indeed!  I hope you get great paint job for them!

Nice score dude.  Now go buy a lottery ticket  ;)
If you want something a little stiffer, try 60lb cardstock.  Doesn't like to curl like some of the lighter weight stuff does.  You can play as is or laminate them as well.
