No new changes have been made to the rules, yet, so I won't repost them. They're good as of 6 October.

Non-'Mech AutoMechs. MiniMechs are an example of this, as are the ultra-light drones. Any Syberian robot not built into a BattleMech or WorkMech body. But in this TRO, they only put the big NMAs in that section--DropShips and a large naval vessel.

Yeah, sorry; I mean, we are dealing with unauthorized usage of other peoples' properties... I didn't modify any of the images you sent me, though the thought crossed my mind, since I figure the audience here is too small and no money's changing hands.

Looks great.

HABeas2
I'm looking forward to reading these through. Now that I've posted a few more AirMechs, maybe I can finish. :) Thanks.  :thumbsup:

Everyone
I posted some more AirMechs. There's a variety of weights and types from 15 tons to 75. Prop fighters to Jet Fighters, and support oriented aircraft. And I did include a Tripod Fighter for kicks.  ;D  They might have some items that didn't make the list but I don't feel like retyping them.

Went back and did a bit more work to make the vee mode look more insectoid.  Now it looks like a cross between a Mosquito, Fly and Grasshopper.  I'm kinda creeped out by it now.

Added the extra legs to the mech mode, for completion sake.

Parts came in today and I got to work.  Got to use some interesting parts for Ransack, and I like the rounded hood style more than the Cessna look the A2 Thunder had.  I wasn't going to modify the gull wings, as there was no real way, without a rebuild to keep the smaller underwings in sync with the top ones.   Used a medieval head that looked appropriate for the theme.  Then only thing I didn't like was the size of the Incubus II, being a tad smaller than I liked.  But I hope people like it!

Since our prop Ransack expy (Sacker) is all of 15 tons, I think the small size is just fine. Looking great, Luc!

so at the dollar store today i saw some figures at the Dollar Tree i couldn't pass up. and i now have a lance of Syberians. though they might need some touch ups (and possibly a new paintjob, in one case)

a Seeker and a Sounder Class


and a Tankus and a Leader Class


the Leader class needs to have his weaponry fitted but i'm sure i can dig up some bits for that, need to hit IWM for some micro-automechs for the Sounder anyway. and i might repaint the leader class into a snazzy black paintscheme.. not sure.


size, compared to a few recent metals i had on hand (sadly my kickstarter figures are buried at the moment)

and the packaging

Hehehe. I had Octane's Mech/Aerospace form as a Seeker II, using a Crusader for the 'Mech, and a Lucifer for the fighter mode.

But I do like that DropShip mod!

I'm working off the older database then, has Octane down as a coolant truck and  Grand Titan.  :-[

That's his Mech/Wheeled mode. Since he's a triple-changer, he got two entries to cover his alt modes.

Ahah, so I have to creatively fudge how a Grand Titan turns into a Lucifer then?   ;D

That's kind of why I made the Mech/Fighter mode a different class. (Yeah, we end up with two different Mech looks for Octane, but, well, I don't have much difficulty with that, personally.)

Gotcha, I did consider asking first about the aerial form, thought it was going to be one of the split types and a dropship alt because of the airliner size

Yeah, I went with a fighter, and gave him an air-tanker variant instead. After all, unlike Astrotrain and SkyLynx, I don't think Octane was ever shown carrying other Transformers around. (The reason I made Astrotrain and SkyLynx have DropShip partners was because they often carried others.)

There was method to my madness!
