What are your plans???
« on: 30 November 2022, 21:13:27 »
While eagerly awaiting my Alpha Strike Box Set, I'm debating how I'm going to paint and organize the 'Mechs.

I'm really tempted to fill out the IS 'Mechs to a full company using the upcoming Northwind Highlander Command Lance (and painting them accordingly).

The Clan 'Mechs....I don't know  :-\  The Warhawk has me thinking Scorpion Empire.

In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddlers’ Green...."

I'm planing on putting together my own non-canon mercenary unit. Still struggling on how to paint them.

I think ill end up using the majority of them.
but theyll all be broken up, although mainly into FWL and laio.

it pains me but i might have to get rid of the Warhawk.

Honestly I have so many of most of these.......

WarHawk      -      Current 3 Warhawks in 13WG, Falcon Guard, Jag Spots.   A 4th isn't needed but maybe Wolf Grey.
TimberWolf   -      6 in 13WG*2, Wolf Grey, Wolf Beta, Falcon Guard, Jag Spots.   A 6th could be something new.
Nova      -      3-4?   13th WG, Wolf Grey, Falcon Guard, & Undecided?   A 5th isn't needed.
Pouncer      -      1 in Wolf Grey.      Not sure what I'd do with 2nd.
FireMoth   -      1 in 13th WG.   2nd would go to the Jags I think.

Atlas      -      3 Lament, Lyran Guard, & SoL.   4th would go Davion Guard I think.
Archer      -      4 in Lyran Guard, Kell Hounds, Dragoons, & undecided.    5th maybe Marik Milz or Ryuken.
WarHammer   -      4 in Davion *2, Dragoon, undecided.  5th could go Lyran Guard or Marik Milz.
Wraith      -      1 in Marik Milz, so the 2nd could go to FW Guards.
Phoenix Hawk   -      4 in Ryuken, Freedom Theatre Milz, FS Armored Cav, Davion Guards..... #5 to Marik Milz
Black Jack   -      1 in Black Wind Lancers.  2nd could go another CC or maybe Draconis March Milz.
Stinger/Wasp   -      I forget which it is but I have 4+ of both, so anywhere.
Locust      -      6+ Locusts in Lament, Freedom Theatre Milz, Ceti Hussars, Marik Milz, Ryuken, RotS Guards.  So #7, Undecided.

If you follow the short story that comes with it: The IS mechs are Highlanders and the Clan mechs are Jade Falcons.

It is a Warhawk C, you have to paint it yellow.

Warhammers and Phoenix Hawks are always welcome, the Archer just a bit behind . . . but another Blackjack?  Locust?  Atlas?  The only reason I would not pass them to my kid is they are variants.  I have a metal Wraith, so a 2nd is fine.

Hellraiser, no Timberwolves in Inner Sphere colors?  I put the last box set's premium plastic Timber Wolf in the 1FSAC regiment.

That is a thought, I normally just paint what is faction appropriate, but, there is enough salvage even by the CW era that I could get away with some cross-over mechs.

I think it just comes down to realizing I'll never need 7 Timberwolves on the board at once.
I think in 33 years since the clans arrived I've seen maybe 2-3 on the table at once.
I might have to think about downsizing soon (scary thoughts)
