Magnetic Destroid Mafia completed.  I should probably add an Archer -K to the mix, with the large lasers painted and marked like the GU-11 pods.

Did a simple mod for the Crusader Hammer L based off what you did.  Works well with either at 65 or 70 tons.

Warhammer legs look good on a lot of things.

I swapped the shoulder missile launchers on the two War Phoenixes, to give my 3067 force an all-IS-tech level.  A little repainting and camouflage and you wouldn't notice the difference.  And hey, the nuln oil actually photographed this time, maybe I figured out how I need to light it.

Stuff's glossy though, so it doesn't do black on camera as well as I'd like.

Kinda looks like it in the picture, but the mini is definitely straight - just angled outward a bit.

A batch of ARC-5Rs for the Devil's Dozen, no mods to these.  Just brown splotches over light tan with a nuln oil coating...which seems to show up okay here.  Red metallic sparkle for the lasers and cockpit coloring, and gunmetal for the barrels and missile launchers.

That could explain it...

And those ARC-5Rs look great! :)

I do indeed appreciate 'em!  Warhammer legs go back to the Archer, I'd assume, but what're you doing with your disarmed Pixies?

I have a stock of metal arms I can use on the Pixie, to make other variants. 

One more kitbash for tonight.   65 jumping energy boat, with more heatsinks and slightly lighter armor, sort of a mini Warlord with everything in the arms.  The running leg pose of the variant Warhammer looks alot nicer with an action jump.

No modded minis this time around, it's a completely canon-'Mech Lyran battle company with two heavy lances and a fire support lance.  I went with woodland camouflage, because I like painting camo schemes compared to parade looks.  They're easier to make mistakes on and handwave rough shapes away as being proper camo breaking up a silhouette.

I did change the War Phoenixes to their two-SRM2-two-SRM6 missile arrays; the extra SRM-6s went to some missile-less Warhammers with Archer arms.

I think I ended up with an older bottle of Nuln Oil, you can tell it's not as shiny on some of the 'Mechs involved in the company.  I probably need to dullcoat the whole shebang, but that'll take experiments because the dullcoat I have right now eats acrylic paint...at least the panel lines are visibly shaded this time around.

Something new, since I now have appropriate looking cannons to replace the ones used for the other Macross Funnies.  Could be a big cannon version, aka the Rifleman 3C.

Yeah, that looks like a 3C to me!  What's the donor 'Mech for the parts?

Macross Defender (Rifleman)  Kids Logic version.  Using the spare Marauder cannons as the arms.

And looks great, Kamas!

That reminds me, does the plastic Marauder mini come with two different dorsal guns on it?  That might be a good source of spare parts as well.

What color scheme are you planning on for this Rifleman 3C?

The standard plastic KS Marauder has no options.  Only the metal one has 2 dorsal guns and 2 leg jump jet ports.  The Kids Logic one I'm sure only has the 1 gun as well.

The jump jets are hard to see on the Marauder 5M as well, as they are fitted to the rear of the legs in a lower spot.

Ah, I thought I'd read that there was a plastic Mad with two dorsals.

So did you ever finish that one Warhammer-Phoenix Hawk with Rifleman arms?

It just got re-primed again, with its drying overnight.  I'll put up a pic of it later after work.  The smaller guns do fit it better aesthetically.

As for paint scheme for the 3C....may do yet another Macross variant scheme.  Just to keep with the theme.

I'm thinking of doing the same with my last Pixie and Warhammer, but with modified Rifleman arms to have dual autocannons on each arm.  I just like the War Phoenix design too much however, I'm trying to convince myself not to build a third.
