I'd love to get some feedback on this, the fluff, the art, the layout etc, any thoughts are most welcome!  can't improve if people don't point out what they thought was wrong :)

Amazing work, marauder. Writing and the artists who help craft this thing together. I serious wish these images were canon.
Thank you so much!!

Very nicely done.  Love it.

I haven't had the chance to actually read much of the new stuff yet, but overall it looks pretty sweet.

Magnificent work, Marauder.

I wonder if the AS community as a whole should create and write-up their own non-canon entries, then combine it with Matt Plog's art to make the same kind of book.  That would be awesome!

Still need solid answer what it is, the Argo i mean.  Is it a Mobile Space Station, A DropShip? Etc.

There is a section of non-canon designs.  I've got my best guess that is based on some early work done over at the Battletechgame.com Forum but I'd be surprised if it ever gets formal canon treatment.  I'm happy to share it if there is any interest.

The non-canon designs are, save for the small craft which came from Maingunnery and Daryk, are ideas of my own, some of which feature in Dragoncat's AU (at the moment the Arbitration and Endeavour).  But I came up with the ideas for them and Plog gave them form :) You can find the rules for them around here too and the other ships :)  The only one that's not got rules is the Blackwatch.

The Onslaught has made it into DC's AU too, but hasn't featured in any of the fluff yet - check the last two "Warships of the Inner Sphere and Clans" spreadsheets under Clan Nova Cat.  ;)

This one is very much the definitive article. 

But there's another slowly in the works.  Proof reading's all but done and then there's gonna be advances on that front.

Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.
     
A.E. Housman
