Deckard_2049s Battletech stuff
« on: 05 March 2023, 15:30:46 »
Hey all, finally decided to make an account on this forum after lurking a bit. I'm painting mechs from several different factions in the BT universe. So far i've only had the chance to play this game once, hopefully i'll get around to playing more later this year though.

Thanks all!

Quick question, when the Lyran Alliance reverted back to being the Lyran Commonwealth did they revert their symbol back to the Steiner logo or keep the blue fist over the silver shield? I am doing a bunch of Lyran Guards, and have the Steiner/Fedcom/Lyran Alliance transfer sheets. I'm kinda baffled as to which to put on my mechs. Thankfully with the Draconis Combine they kept the same iconography throughout their history, saves me a headache.

This is what CamoSpecs and the MUL have.  Looks like they went back in name and image.

Repainted this commando I had finished a while back. I suppose using the Steiner logo makes sense then, to make the mechs look viable throughout most eras. I really like the Lyran Alliance logo but that's such a specific period of time that didn't even last too long.

W.I.P catapult for the Lyran Guards, still need to do some weathering and the base. I was going to do them all as the 6th Lyran Guards but i'm finding the decal blends a bit into the white armor, might try and get transfers for the 3rd or 5th instead.

Finished up more Draconis Combine stuff plus a group shot. This might be the last of this faction i'll be doing for a while, as i'm getting a bit burnt out on painting red.

Thanks, it's just evil sunz scarlet + wild rider red highlights.

For some reason the group photo looks low resolution compared to the source, odd, but whatever.

I think the Charger is part of the mercs kickstarter, i'll probably get around to that one when it hits the shelves. I really want to do the Clint in Davion green or Eridani Light Horse drab too, lots to look forward to in regards to releases.
