Reeling from the dual blows of the Jihad and the Wars of Reaving, the Inner Sphere Clans found themselves with depleted forces and depleted industries. As we've seen before and will continue to see for the next few decades in-universe, the Clans could no longer simply replace OmniMechs with more OmniMechs. They were resource constrained and this led to a focus on BattleMechs, especially cost-effective BattleMechs. Which brings us to the Onager, a (relatively) inexpensive assault 'Mech for Clan Jade Falcon. The Blood Reaper is a less cost-effective BattleMech but still not an OmniMech. To learn how to use them in game, please see wantec's 'Mech of the Week article for the Blood Reaper and marauder648's 'Mech of the Week article for the Onager.

Like many 'Mechs of this era, each of these only have a single sculpt:
If you have either of these painted, please share pictures. We'd love to see them!

Our next two fortnights will be:
  • 5/13: Bandersnatch and Rakshasa
  • 5/27: The late Jihad sequels: Pack Hunter II, Dasher II, and Shadow Cat II
