Hrm. Debating expanding my SLDF custom set. I've got a bunch of stuff painted up for it already, although I couldn't use all of it neccessarily....

What it's got:

4x Highlander
2x Thug
2x Lancelot
1x Longbow
1x Black Knight

Plus:
1x Maelstrom
1x Grim Reaper

I'd want to keep to 2750-compatible, so I'd have to add a few classic lighter units.

Are we sticking to a set time period for availability ect or just the standard Clan Invasion Timeline Savage?

No time period is set.  Savage Coyote's own project, and Pyscho's, are Dark Age.  Mine is Succession Wars.

Hrm. That's an idea. I could mark what era the lists are for too. ::hrm::
And it looks like I might need to update the list.

Mine is the cusp between the FedCom Civil War and the Jihad, or as I like to call it, "the four boring months."

Then sign me up for 400pts of Kell Hounds, with the possibility of 400 more in 3rd Capellan Reserves if I can manage it.

Sign up? There's no sign up! Just start painting and posting!

...jeez, if there was a sign up, you think they'd let me participate? ;)

Mine ended up being in the Golden Century b/c I had two 'Mechs I wanted to use that were only in use then. That said, I've been contemplating grabbing a few more 'Mechs once I'm done so that I can trade out and have a more modern version as well.

I personally went Succession War because I am running an Alpha Strike game at a local con set during the 4th War.

In that case, you should buy some of the fake spider-web stuff and give each of your 'Mechs a long white beard and maybe a cane or a walker too.  ;D

I'm also in the Dark Age, with a soonest-possible-time being 3115 just for units involved.  I'd probably put it right around 3145 proper.

How do I figure out the costs for the minis. If I'm putting together a Clan Jade Falcon star, what would I look at to make the list? Thanks!!

Instead of sticking to a single era, I'm going to paint up a few spare mechs and elementals to swap in so the unit can fit in anywhere it needs to.

Partly because the plan makes me feel clever, but mostly because I didn't know what to do with the extra Crossbow mini.

After some extensive marketing research (ie my most likely candidates for recruitment bemoaning how utterly ugly the 3025 plastics are) I've decided to redo the entire line-up with more recent models, ranging from Invasion-era up to and including the Dark Ages. I am, however, freed from the shackles of other commitments, so I should have time to start proper work soon. Waiting for a couple models in the mail and I'll be ready to get started.

Does this Call to war paint project absolutely require that I own the AlphaStrike Companion?

I have plenty of minis sitting around. I actually started on two different forces after I read this thread, but did not remember the AS:C bonus requirements. Both forces are at lance strength, though only one of them is very far along.

With the release of the CM: Mercs Beta I am getting in on this. Going with a late 3rd SW 21st Centauri Lancers because I like the fluff, they hate Liao, work for the FWL and the fact they have access to multiple Grasshoppers and Bmasters. :D My rough build so far is;

Lancers Command Company (Rated Elite/Heavy)

Command Lance-
Battlemaster BLR-1Gb 44 points
Centurion CN9-A 28 points
2 Stalker STK-3Fb 102 points

Skirmisher Lance-
4 Grasshopper GHR-5N 156 points

Fire Support Lance-
2 Catapult CPLT-C1 66 points
2 Archer ARC-R 78 points



Total: 472 points which leaves 28 points for upgrades.

From the first post...

•Create a force between 360-400 points

Unless I missed something, you are over by 72 points Gunz.

Is this still ongoing or something that is going to get restarted?  I am interested and will be creating a small Society force and this would be perfect to compliment/drive me!
