We need a lance equiped light mech called an ulhan or winged lancer.

Already tried, didn't work with the Black Knight mounting the Destrier or Charger  :))

I'm willing to suspend my disbelief, but I'm not willing to hang it by the neck until it's dead, dead, dead!

That kind of fourteen year old edgy screams clan.

That is the best summary of the Clans' real-world development I have ever seen. :thumbsup:

Mastodon really should have been a quad to really lean into the name.

It appears that way from Adrians comments in the other thread. Lots of other stuff coming online today was the reasoning.

MODERATOR NOTICE

An update has been posted in the Upcoming Releases thread:

"The Recognition Guide was intentionally delayed.  That series has had a number of people working very hard to deliver a high-quality product and management decided that their work deserved more recognition than being lost amidst a wave of other materials on the same day."

I want to make one thing crystal clear: If the same behavior that we locked Upcoming Releases over crops up in here, a thread lock will follow.  It won't be as short.

I wonder what is going to be in Rec Guide 23. This one didn't have a cover preview like 21. Is it because of special cover colors?

It was mentioned that the two “missing” already shown cover art, the colors would have meanings for them. 21 was blue and mostly ghost bear stuff. So I’m guessing red (or flames) for CHH with its (probably) doom courser

Both 21 & 23 don't have cover previews and I believe it was said the color had some significance for both.

Next one up is 22 which has the Jade Phoenix on the cover.

Every rec guide has a distinct color shade on the cover. Surprised no one has taken a stab at hyperanalyzing the significance yet (I don’t know if there even is one but that hasn’t stopped people before)

Having just spent 90 seconds looking at the covers, I got nothing.

Ion Sparrow is green, that's obvious, the turkina is basically yellow and the lighting is brown.

Executioner cover is Ghost Bear Light Blue and the Viper/Black
Python/White Raven cover is Snow Raven Teal.

The Marauder cover is red, and the last three letters of “Marauder” spell “red” backwards.

We can guess who played records backwards listening for the hidden messages.

So...not to sound like I'm complaining, but was a new release date established for the latest Guide?

As I said, I'm not complaining, just wondering if there's a timeline, and does it affect the timeline of the remaining Guides?

If there is no timeline, that's fine, but if there is, inquiring minds want to know :)

No information other then 'We aren't releasing it today' was given for the Not Named Rec Guide. So we don't know when it is going to drop or if it is going to impact the schedule for the remaining two Rec Guides.

With the Goliath C mini from IWM out, I'm trying to understand it.

It is new art, but it is project phoenix design? So we technically don't have a classic Goliath at the moment?
