In honor of the resculpt that was just released for its mini, could we get a new article on the Highlander?

It misses the XTRO Comstar variant, two unique variants (the Colleen and the Jorgensson), and the 694 variant.

Then i guess someone should inform Moonsword and ask if he's willing to add those.
If not, then someone could write a Highlander Supplemental MOTW? Or add overview/analysis of them to the thread?

It does seem some of the other older articles are missing newer variants as well...
EDIT I think so anyway. At least the Mangonel is missing the latest variant. Any others?

A lot of 'Mechs start missing variants as time moves on.
I'd suggest PMing the authors of any MotW articles for updates, or simply bumping any write-ups you're interested in to give people a chance to discuss these new variants.

I should have the Jupiter article ready by Friday unless someone has a particularly burning desire for that slot.

Friday it is, then! Hopefully there's no new variant in XTRO Republic III because I won't be able to talk about it.

Wait, except for I love the Jupiter and I want more Jupiter.

Hmmm.

Go for it. I'm not writing much these days, too distracted with real-life stuff to focus on putting something up.

...and with that said, I had yesterday off. Wrote a bunch, can put the Savage Wolf up this week. 'Specially now that I know there wasn't a new variant in the XTRO.

Sorry, busy today. Cat got sick, had to rush by vet. Everything probably fine now, but still ate up a bunch of time.
Will post tomorrow as soon as I can.

Been a while, reposting this.
If anyone else has an article ready and wants to reserve a slot, lemme know!

Current Reservations:

cold1: Bowman
Dakkagor: Black Hawk-KU
Dragon Cat: Mercury II (maybe?)
Empyrus: Hauptmann, Sha Yu, Sling
Fallen Raven: Penetrator
Geovanni Blasini: Chaffee, Quasit
Getz: Legacy
GreekFire: Ostroc, Ostsol, Exhumer, Ninja To
kotetsu: Vapor Eagle, Rifleman IIC, Warhammer IIC
Moonsword: Templar (maybe?)
The Eagle: Hammer, Crimson Langur

Current requests: Anubis, Brigand, Celerity, Conjurer, Diomede, Hammerhands, Parash, Snow Fox

And I think I'm gonna grab both the Ostsol and the Ostroc for a huge double article.

I'm also gonna take the Exhumer and the Ninja To...I'm going to wait until the new art for the Ost-Mechs come out before putting out any write-ups on them.

With the Sunder article having appeared, i reckon i should get around writing about the Hauptmann for comparison. And if someone could do the Templar, we'd have IS assault omnis covered... maybe? Can't recall if both Manei Domini assault omnis are covered, the Archangel is for sure.)

Maybe i'll manage to start writing next week (no promises i'm getting anything done by Friday, and even if i were, i'm away then), going to need something to prevent Battlefront from consuming all of my time...


And then the other 'Mechs i took as my responsibility...


No, i didn't have anything relevant to say, this is more of a reminded for myself.
