Finally got past the writer's block.  I'll likely get around to publishing it next week after I've proof and fact checked.

Has there been any movement on the large number of Capellan mechs that had their articles pulled, written by Empyrus?

I'll try to get back to it. Haven't had much enthusiasm for BattleTech for a while.

Any particular ones you're especially interested in?
Minis needed for Atlas AS7-K2, Stalking Spider II; Kishi, Oni, Zou, Simian, Quirinus and Centaur battle armor; DI Multipurpose VTOL, Kinnol tank, JES III missile carrier.

Not any one in particular, I’ve read just about every other mech that’s been posted, so would be nice to finish the reading.  :))

The Cappies have been growing on me more and more since I came back and their units generally confuse me.

I was thinking of doing the Daimyo, but looking at the MUL there's variants I'm not familiar with. the 2KA and 3K

Does TRO:J have new variants, or is something weird happening in MUL land?

TRO Jihad: "by combining the ’Mechs previously found in Technical Readout: 3050 Upgrade , Technical Readout: 3055 Upgrade , Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade , Technical Readout: 3060 , Technical Readout: 3067 , Technical Readout: 3075 , Technical Readout: 3085 , and Technical Readout: Project Phoenix "

EDIT Ah, sorry, misunderstood. The compilation TROs are just that, compilations, no changes or additions to text. The 3KA and 3K are mentioned somewhere (probably TRO3055/J entry for Daimyo) but don't have record sheets.
EDIT2 Hmm, weren't in TRO3055U.
EDIT Could be they're units alluded to in original TRO3055 perhaps, but very vaguely, and MUL team just created designations for them. There's some precedent, see the Huron Warrior: http://www.masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/4342/huron-warrior-hur-wo-r3l
This variant is only described in the 'Mech entry, designation is created by the MUL team.

Can someone write a Thresher Mk II article and detail its fails?
Why do the Wolves insist on nice looking but kinda terrible 'Mechs...

Kind of looking forward to reading the Crucible write-up myself. It's the most... 3050 design I've seen in a long while outside of a couple where they were constrained by clickytech.

No kidding. Every time I look at the thing, I find myself looking over the entire stat block, looking for a shtick.

I seem to have adopted the t-bolt article, unless the OP wants to handle the Rec Guide updates?

Would anyone be interested in taking a crack at the Kheper, please? :)

Yes, actually. It's been a while, and this one has been floating in my head for a bit.
