Operation GLASS HOUSE.
« on: 26 January 2022, 05:12:16 »
Sir.

Operation GLASS HOUSE was a success, assets successfully infiltrated and destroyed the stolen assets and data logs. BDA indicates casualty rate of airbase personnel at 96% Friendly assets incurred zero casualties and minimal damage. IRON FIST is on site for further observations and data gathering.

M.

Just some WIPs by Matt Plog for a smaller scale fanon Project i'm working on that does not involve the SLDF's special forces and deeply black projects that never ever existed, otherwise they'd serve only at the behest of the SLDF's Chief of Intelligence and completely outside the usual chain of command, and that of course would be wrong.... These totally non-existent 'Mechs are bleeding edge SLDF equipment, designed from the ground up for stealth.

Thoughts and comments are most welcome.

I'd say nice work, if indeed, there was anything that could be verified.  ;)

Very interesting and promising new project.

If I may ask you, what happened to your AU project Intelligence report from Hector (Art WIP), you showed so wonderful previews.
Maybe I have missed the final.

Those previews look vaguely like the WOB Celestials.

And why do I have those non-existent mechs have other bells and whistles under the hood? Like, say, an early version of Void Sig?

Someone's been reading my notes and no new tech, just the stuff the SLDF does have. Whilst there will be refinements etc it won't have any game changing rules. Although there will be some optional rules. For example, these guys will be able to use Semi-Guided LRMs even though they came out much later.

I'm getting weird vibes about these mechs and whatever group operates it. These aren't the Royal Black Watch or even Gunslingers. These are the Wetworks Operatives, the hidden knife in the boot.
...
Of course, then I'd ask WTF they were doing while Amaris was doing his coup and what happened to them afterwards.

Is it only going to be Battlemechs, or will vehicles, BA, and/or ASFs be part of it?

Only the Concordiat? Yeah, and I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell you. I'm betting they were at least also involved in upholding the Mother Doctrine.

Gods no, that would be in horrifically poor taste and just wrong. I'm talking about actual gas ovens (we have those here in Europe)

I've got to show this one off. You can really see the sharply angled and F-117 esque 'stealth' look that I was after. The result is that it looks almost crystaline or weirdly organic in a deeply alien way, especially when combined with the 'stained glass window' cockpit.

Of course, this Badb has its stealth systems off and its basic dark grey hull is fully visible as it goes about its designed role of engaging 'soft' targets, in this case, a RWA HQ and its personnel.

I am guessing 1 Large Laser, 1 SRM-6, and 4 Machine Guns?

Aye, an ER large but everything else is correct.

They look like an Alien Battlemech which would show up in SL-era movies. Heck, that probably was another layer of cover.

Badb, named for the Celtic mythos I see.

Nice Omega symbol on the Mech - maybe you should forego any markings?

It's probably an omega, yes, but I saw the Badb and wondered if the unit symbol might be a torc?

Feel free.

Even if they weren't officially called that, who's to say the mechwarriors didn't come with that nickname on their own?

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
