When you need a mech, but didn't have cash buy it off the used 'Mech Lot.

They managed to do that with a b&w drawing.

You sure?  Apart from being bald he doesn't look like any of the classic Alexander Kerensky art to me.

Its him, its the picture of him that appears in the Battletech Legends book which has newer art of many famous characters/warriors from the setting.

Back to the pictures.  :D



I'm sure the MechWarrior wasn't that happy about the party being done in his honor either.

Pretty sure thats a Cestus - https://www.sarna.net/wiki/Cestus just a MUCH better picture of one than the horror of TRO 3058's art and its IMMENSE clown shoes.

It's a Cestus

While this is...

Walking Smoker, or a coal powered BattleMech given how WoB like to worship the machine.

If people are blowing up smokers they should probably be put into some kind of home.

I would have never guessed a Cestus, I don’t think I’ve ever thought about that mech even once.

I mean, it's not a bad 'mech stats-wise, but it looks like a fish with legs doing the Counter-Strike "Press B to crouch" meme.

Incredibly, it's still not as ugly as its TRO3058 heavy stablemate, the Dragon Fire.

The dragon fire is probably my favorite IS mech ever, but dear god every time I see it is so ugly. Every rendition makes me sick

I will say that the Dragon Fire mini was surprisingly almost decent considering the source material.

Here's a pretty damn nice fan redesign: https://www.deviantart.com/giorgioespinos/art/DGR-3F-Dragon-Fire-782095639

I have still never seen anybody even attempt to redesign the War Dog. "Menacing and easily recognizable" the fluff says. Well, 1 out of 2 ain't bad? I sort of love the thing because it has maybe the most "quirks" (not the rules kind) of any 'mech that's still somewhat actually usable (FIVE tons of gauss ammo)... but for the life of me, I can't begin to figure out what you'd even "latch on" to as visual elements to carry over to a new design. The "fins" on top inboard of the shoulders? The vertical air intake kinda things in either side torso? Just throw it out and start over.

Ah, the smell of pork slowly roasting mixed with the smell of burnt hair.  Yum.

I mean you’d probably shave the pig before, like every other animal you cook.

If I have to shave it before I puncture the plastic, I'm throwing it away and grabbing another box out of the freezer.
