I am planning to do a game in the future where the proposed survivors of the Division land on Lonestar and go up again the Amaris forces.

The unit was done up to include everyone's request of mech choice from the SLDF and Royal lists. (The Royals were included as the unit was known to use unconventional means to get better mechs.

Here are the lance photos. I will break them down in the replies. If you want a close up of a particular mech, please let me know.



Command Lance:
Battlemaster "Hellslinger"  Orange Woman
Highlander 732b                GreyWolf_Actual
Crockett 1b                        Dark Falcon
Atlas II H2                          Sareth

This for sure gets two thumbs up!   8) 8)  What arms did you use on the Warhammer if I may ask?

They are the PPC arms from the gencon exclusive catapult from years ago. You get the option of those or the missile racks with the mini.

I like this project!  Is the "Chicago Division" a canon unit, or is it one you created?  In any case, I love the hand painted city flags on the mechs.  Great touch!   ;D

They are cannon. Most of the unit died in space to Caspar drones in the initial assault on Lone Star. I am just using the "most" to the extreme to have fun.

It was a division with 1 mech and 2 mechanized infantry brigades.

Gorgeous! And stunning work.

(I cheated; white rectangle, then used light blue & red felt tip pens. But ever since I saw you do that checkering ...  :o )

Humble request one: if no-one else claims it, can I be proxied in the Crab?

Humble request two: if you need reinforcements, there's a combined-arms battalion out there unaccounted for ...
