Marik Civil War Special Hunchback
« on: 03 October 2016, 20:22:56 »
As anyone who's seen more than one of my posts down here knows, I'm a Blazer Cannon fanatic.  Since Marik was the first house to produce a prototype, it struck me as the perfect weapon for use in one of their many civil wars (where the original Blazer Rifle itself saw plenty of use).  A quick glance over Xotl's excellent tables revealed Hunchbacks are a common medium 'mech chassis for Marik, and given the proliferation of variants, it seemed like the logical choice for the base.  Taking a cue from the perfect heat tuning of the Marik Wolverine (WVR-6M), this variant can jump and alpha strike every other turn while cooling off with a jump and a pair of medium lasers in between.  It drops the small laser in the name of heat balance, and tacks a little more armor on the legs.

Not bad.

Thanks!  I thought about doing something heavier, but the Hunchback just felt right...

No, a Hunchback makes sense. We've seen so many Swaybacks out there I'm surprised it never became an Omni (it didn't, did it?), and we've already discussed a blazer as an AC/10 or AC/20 replacement.

Honestly, it was Xotl's tables that clinched it for me.  Seeing all those Swaybacks on the Marik list just screamed "pick me! pick me!".
