Has there been an article on the Koshi (Standard) done yet? I didn't see one, and thought it might be an interesting unit.

I don't remember a Koshi anywhere...wanna take it?

BTW, I'd also like to take the Hitotsume Kozo to wrap up the DC totem 'Mechs if that's cool with everyone.

Sure, I'll post it on Friday.  Should I add the JM7 series article the following week or save it for later?

I think saving it would be a good call, that way we can rotate and give someone else a chance to post their own.
Although we could always do a double-feature, I doubt anyone would mind.

I'd be inclined to do it as a double feature.

Double feature sounds good to me.

Or maybe we should call it a triple feature, for no reason!

I am not quite so good at writing up articles..... but if I do, would you be willing to edit or proofread for me?

Gah!  Real life got in the way of posting up the the second part of my double header on Monday - but it's up now.

I think I'll take on the Legacy next, so long as no-one objects...

Hey Diplo, with drakensis putting this out: http://bg.battletech.com/forums/fan-articles/the-three-headed-dragon/ do you want to go ahead and post the Shiro this Friday alongside my Hitotsume kozo?

Um.

Yes, that's a good idea.

I should probably write the Shiro article, then!

Oh. Right. Uhh..I thought you had it pretty much done for some reason. Not sure why.
If you gotta/wanna hold up on it or whatever just lemme know.

No, no. It's just two variants, I can definitely have it done by Friday. I just don't have it done yet.

Absolutely no offense to you, marauder648, but I'd love to see an updated version of jymset's old article.

Uh, is there no article for the Hauptmann? Not even a "tell me about" thread? Because, i thought i had seen a thread about the Hauptmann, but forum search, Google, nor ctrl-F search from the list gets me no results.

I guess I'll claim the Vikings. Might be a while, since I haven't used most of the variants much, and they're all pretty different. Might end up being pretty long.
