I've been playing in Word, and got a good start; decent cover, ok layout, but got mixed up trying to go leftpage/right page and screwed it up somehow, so have to do the covers again.  I have lots of work done, but was waiting for questions to get answered and stopped working.  The file is too big to show here, but if somebody's interested in looking I can put it on my Dropbox and send an invite.

(edit - my god, I'm such a whiner.  3/4 of this post was just embarrassing.  I can respect the effort to do these things, I just can't do it myself.)

But no.  If I'm going to do it, It's got to be my work.  I can live with it even if it looks like my kids did it.   xp

Is this the Blake Threat File you shared with me over on Ourbattletech? Or are you going back to the New Clans?

The BTF.

Timelines done, BA refits and Wheeled BA rules are written, BE trailers are done, I've bogged down in the drone section and so some more blatantly warcrimey are going to be robots.

20 or so Mechs refitted with Legacy tech are done, the rest of the Serpentis Series of vehicles are decided and rough estimates for tonnage/stats dome, but it was supposed to focus on drones/robots since those rules aren't widely understood or used.  Once the designs are done, I can relax and write the fluff.

Just life, you know?  Winter and the school year are the quiet time, but the chore list has gotten so big I'm starting to avoid it and just making it day to day is becoming an issue.

I don't know why, but I'm getting vibes similar to the Devil and Howler (Baboon) with the Side Torso mounted PPC.

>sigh<

It's not that I haven't been doing stuff, it's that I have no peace and quiet at home, so I have notebooks of designs and a file on flash drive and a backup at work.  When I screwed up the title page and read cover, I couldn't figure out how to fix it, so I deleted it to concentrate on the separate parts and put together when I had the entries done.

So I actually have more done, but less in a file to share.  It's a little embarrassing. :-X

Case in point; unscheduled hospital visit, 5cm snow removal at two houses, garbage bins to dig out and move, kids lunches, meds,dishes, my own supper, dog going nuts at wind...

I'm reminded of that Al Bundy gif, where he does the flat broke song, finishing with, 'Shoot me!'.  :excited:

I am thinking more Pack Hunter-ish.

@Marauder648, So any other designs in the Tuatha series?

Edit: So I think I realized what these Mechs remind me of. They remind me of the TSFs/TSAs from Muv-Luv.

Well we will be looking forward to them.

Also I really like seeing a group of 'Mechs with their own look, it really sells a faction/group.  :thumbsup:

Is it only going to be Battlemechs, or will vehicles, BA, and/or ASFs be part of it?
only there is nothing to see here, as these are just mockup for a massive action movie most likely nothing reall....   8)  I mean look at that pose, like you would really see anything like this on the battlefield 2760s..  I bet there will be aliens we have to fight to win..

Well accidents DO happen you know. Such terrible problems with gas ovens even these days...
