I've got a Kingfisher article good to go.  Its been boring at work and quiet and needed something to keep my mind active.

Just a reminder, marauder, jymset has reserved the Kingfisher for himself. Think you could do a write-up on something else instead?

Ahh yes, i'll do that tomorrow :)  Probably the Cestus and mebbe the Lynx as the Cestus wasn't produced in many flavours.

*edit* Actually i'll just do the Cestus, don't need to be a biggun after all.

I'll reserve the Raven, if that's okay?
I have the Thresher under work but... man, i don't really know what to say about it. Need to clear my head from it.

The Raven i have a lot to say about, being a CapCon fan.

And i'll cover the Raven II with the Raven, if that's OK as well, considering it is little more than a heavier variant (with no variants of its own).
EDIT And definitively not today though.

Well shoot.  I didn't even notice this until just now, but I'm going to be dropping an Alpha Strike Mech of the Week article on the Raven (sans Raven II for now) here in a few hours.

I finally found the time and inclination to do the Viking(s) article, so that can go up next week after Greekfire does his this week. Sound plan?

Forget about me, real life is getting in the way. I don't have the energy to write something good at all.

For those not aware, I'll be putting up an Alpha Strike article on the Uraeus on (either the first hour or the last hour of) Friday.

Ooh, I really want to see that. It's the last remnant of one of my previous factions of choice, in service with my current faction of choice, and at I am desperate for any reason to like it.

Had a good day, Raider is ready to go whenever. I'll keep it in reserve for an open week since I seriously doubt it's something that'll generate much interest.

Cool, thanks very much.

In related news, real life is interfering in my writing the legacy article, but it is about half done so I'll try and get it finished sometime in the next few weeks.

I fell out of favour with heaven somewhere, so I'm here for the hell of it now...

I really, really want to cover it, but if you want to as well - go ahead. First come, first serve!

Anyone got a claim on the Maelstrom? It doesn't look like we've got a recent article and it's got an NTNU variant that might warrant coverage.

Might as well give it a shot  O0
Worst comes to worst, if things get too hectic you can pop back here and relinquish your claim on it. But consider it reserved in your name for the time being. Cool?

Go for it!

Anyone mind if I go for the Raider this Friday?
I'm steadily working my way through the Albatross as well...it'll be out eventually.

Sure.  PM incoming shortly.

GreekFire, put me tentatively down for the Quasit, if I can't convince Chanman to do that one, which I would expect to be a laugh riot.
