I'm imagining a modern rhino, but with Precambrian-style bone plates around the head and forward torso.

Also, that it is much more nimble than it looks, occupying a niche similar to a mountain goat.

Also, skulls. Because.

Wait, wrong setting.

If only it didn't have single heatsinks.

I did not notice the heat sinks.

...meh. If I can handle a Fire Scorpion 2, I can handle this. Real warriors attempt shutdown rolls! Also, cheaper BV, so huzzah!

Instead of Clan Stone Lion, maybe they should have gone with Clan Stone Rhino.

I always felt it was weird that they named the Stone Lions so close to an already existing name that also had Clan origins...but that's just my opinion

That was basically the entire duration of the Star League when it was intact...

The SL also had the strongest army in human history up until the Amaris Coupe. A war was going to happen no matter what so it just goes back to the circular argument that fans love/hate regarding Kerensky packing up and leaving before the House Lords broke out the nukes.

If and that's a big IF, Jes Cole, was Jennifer Winson and actually was Amanda Cameron, her entire life would have been hiding from Death Squads vs be educated to lead the known Human Sphere and thus not ready to take a throne to lead a crumbling SL surrounded by House Lords who have grown to despise the Cameron family and allow Amaris to have his way in order to bid their time for their own rush for the thrown. (Yeah, the 1 SW was going to happen no matter what thanks to Amaris)

I think that's the first time I've ever seen someone say that they want to field the Behemoth 4. I'm impressed.

If only it didn't have single heatsinks.

I really want to like the Flashman there's just something I can't identify that's bothering me about it.  I'll have to wait and see the 3D renders.



The legs are very awkward imo

One thing people who think that Amanda Cameron's showing up and pressing her claim to the First Lordship would automatically have saved the Star League are forgetting how successful such attempts have been historically. The short answer is the number of times a long thought dead heir has been able to successfully reclaim their throne has been so vanishingly rare as to be all but unheard of.

Add on that the SLDF was only a shadow of its former self, powerful but not nearly the big stick they were before, the near annihilation of the Cameron's bodyguards(the Black Watch), the risk/reward ratio of assassinating the final legitimate Cameron was firmly on the side of reward for an ambitious House Lord, the Lords were showing little interest rallying behind and supporting anyone for First Lord other than themselves, that pressing her claim would likely lead to the sort of destructive succession war Kerensky was trying to prevent, and that all the Lords would immediately suspect Kerensky's motives in suddenly and conveniently revealing the existence of a lost Cameron, especially if Amanda=Jennifer and he also reveals that his son Nicholas is her consort and they are currently at work producing an heir should anything happen to her. You think Kerensky looks bad not pressing Amanda's claim, if she was alive and he knew about it, he would look even worse if he did try to support her claim. He would be seen as a desperate, power-hungry, grasping villain, who cynically put forth a pretender in a bid to maintain his power and position, and led the Star League into a bloody and ultimately unsuccessful Succession War for his own vanity. All you need to do is look at how poorly anyone who tried anything similar has come off looking in history.

The Crockett look 100% meaner imo, like something you would want standing next to a Awsome. The Lancelot looks allot more fierce as well, the original looked a little anemic with the PPC not even visible in most of the artwork.

I'm honestly going to be tempted to make a SLDF task force after this.
