Imma go ahead and say someone else can take the Mortis if they want. Class and work are in full swing and if anything it will only get more hectic over the next year or so. Sadly, some stuff has fallen by the wayside for now.

That is a pity. I would have enjoyed another article by the Tactful Tactician. :'(

Well, i still have no idea how i'll present the Sling-family... currently leaning toward individual articles. That is, i have nothing for tomorrow (technically today from my POV).

Suggestion: Arctic Fox, to get yet another IS OmniMech covered (then there's the Battle Cobra left, pre-Jihad, IIRC).


EDIT NO ACTUALLY I WONT!

If you do, could you perhaps do one of the old requests that are still open?

I may have the Sling for the next Friday, or perhaps even Tuesday as a 'Mech of the Midweek. Decided to make each article individually, though i'll add links to them to each other, plus links to point at the Mist Lynx, Arctic Cheetah and Hellion, since they're part of the Sling-family.

Anyone else have anything coming up?

EDIT Indeed, i can have the article up for Tuesday. Just needs a spellcheck and some formatting. Anyone have anything for Friday or shall i just leave the Sling for Friday?

An update, i'll be posting a double article Friday, featuring both the Sling and Duan Gung. With one variant each, and being very similar to boot, i figured i could cover them together. I'll leave the standard Koshi for later.

Also is this where I request 'mechs?

In that case I would like to request an suthor of destinguished talent, high moral character and a vast knowledge pool of battletech lore write an article on the subject of the Zeus-X. The ideal applicant would take care not to ask where the lightning bolts are on the X and X4. They would never refer to the 'mech as the 'Spruce Zeus' and must aknowlege their debt to me for bringing this opportunity to their attention.

I did search for an article but if I missed it and their is already one about then thanks for your patience.

When would you like the Brig done for?

There's Zeus article but no Zeus-X if i recall correctly. So, i'll add it to the list.

As for the Brigand... The scheduling depends on you. Do you want a deadline? (I know some people work better with deadlines.) If not, just say when you have it ready and you'll get the next good slot.

Did you notice Scotty had reservation for the 'Mech?
That said, when i copied GreekFire's list, he had Scotty's reservation marked as "Three months ago", and that list was from April, so perhaps Scotty wasn't going to write this anyway?

Thats why I did it, the Faff was just waiting and waiting, and I don't even know if Scotty's around any more, so after 7 months of it waiting I decided to do an article on the Fafnir.

I see. Considering Scotty noted something about being lazy in the AS thread just today, i reckon he won't mind. EDIT Err, speak of the devil...

If any people who have reservations read this, would you mind confirming you're doing stuff? Not asking when you get anything done, just wondering if you're still interested in your reservations.


Oh, and i may have a special for this weekend, general thoughts on the Clan OmniMechs, specifically their construction and logistics.
