I am currently working on two "Fan" sourcebooks: Mercenaries Supplemental: Fan, and Field Manual: Clan Wolverine.

You can find them here:
http://bt.dylanspcs.com/books/

If you would like your mercenary unit to appear in a future edition of my Mercs Supplemental, please contact me via PM.

NOTE: You must format it to match my book yourself. I've already wasted enough time fixing the formatting of others who cannot follow this simple request. The software used is LibreOffice, the font used is Liberation Serif at 10 points. You can leave out the bold, underline, and extra font sizing as I don't mind correcting those. You also don't need to do the split columns for the unit breakdowns. Just please present the information in the same way I have.

About the FM: Wolverines...
This is set in an alternate timeline where the Wolverines reveal themselves to join with and strengthen the new SLDF in mid 3062. Within just a few months they are under attack by Clan Wolf, Clan Ghost Bear, and Clan Jade Falcon with supporting clusters from Clan's Coyote and Hell's Horses operating as part of the Clan Wolf ground forces.

I hope you enjoy these fan works. Thank you.

EDIT: Don't forget to check out TRO: Wolverine & RS: Wolverine while you're in there! I'll be adding a Naval TRO and RS for the Wolverines as I have the time.

Thanks. I enjoy it is a large part of why it looks so good ;) I spend a lot of time on it. Especially on trying to create designs for the Wolverines that are better than Canon, yet trying not to be too munchy at the same time.

Not a clue what thread you're referring to and I'm way too lazy to search ;)
Would be smart to bookmark my site, even though it doesn't currently have a homepage it will shortly... then you can have access to all of my goodies, not just the books.

Just bookmark the link in the first post. All releases will be there. In essence the Mercenaries Supplemental: Fan will never be "done" since it will be a continuing project for as long as I'm into BattleTech. Anyone can submit a unit following the guidelines. I'll also add more of my own units as I create them of course ;)

As for FM: Wolverine, I really just need to sit down and put my paper notes into practice in the book.

Also, everyone should check out TRO: Wolverine and  RS: Wolverine since those are pretty close to finished.

Just read thru your Merc Supplemental.
Good start up with some interesting write ups.

Thanks. I'm currently out of units to write up except a couple of my own that just got so huge and so good (skill wise) and so munchy (70% or more clantech) that I'm not sure if I'm going to even include them in my book. Would just feel too top heavy to me then. So, definitely looking for contributions :D Until I get 2+ more, 0.5 will be the last release. I probably shouldn't even have done that one, but I had kinda forgotten a unit when I did the 0.4 release, so I did a single unit release to make up for that. I'll be spending my writing time on RS: Mercenaries Fan and TRO: Mercenaries Fan in the meantime.

...Hmm.

Looking at everything, I note the HeavyMetal programs are out of date - some of the designs will have that annoying single armor point less.  Otherwise, damn, it looks good.  If you want a help editing, let me know - I actually enjoy correcting spelling and grammar.

Are you still taken in Merc units. Do they have to be pure BT rule unit or just can be just added as is.

I'm always accepting them ;)

What do you mean by "pure BT" though?

As long as you aren't creating custom equipment or anything like that (Not custom mechs, but custom equipment)

Nope everything that is on these mechs are weapons and equipment in all the rules. No single slot DHS. Clan only.

Thanks. I'll be spending more time on my books in the (hopefully near) future. The Wolverine book has a long way to go. The Mercenaries book just needs more units submitted!

If you still need some units I've got a nasty little light mech based more on Royal SLDF (2750 SL) lines (it follows my current campaign).

Not more units as in Mechs, but rather more units as in mercenary units ;)

Howdy

I would love to submit a unit, that is by all means different, yet quite competent.

It does 'strecth' things canonwise, though makes for a quite potent fighting force.
