Has the Thunder Hawk gotten a write up?
Can't find one in the list.
Or with forum search (though there is a "tell me about" it, old one though).

I'm not familiar with quads, nor really a fan, but i have those two Age of Destruction minis and i find them interesting.
I will take them.

Has the Thunder Hawk gotten a write up?

FYI, I have a copy of an early draft of TRO 3058 and it has SHS. No "nerfing" was performed on it.

It's been a rumor, much like the "Mark I" Clan Omnis.

Mark 1 Clan Omnis?
A theory that the Clan Omnis from TRO3050 were designed differently, that they ended up too good and many (if not all) were redesigned and downgraded. Some of this is based on artwork that doesn't necessarily match the recordsheets (kinda like the 5-tube LRM 20 on some Atlas artwork). For many people it's also based on the idea that the supposedly much superior Clans would never have come up with designs that seem so odd on the battlefield (Gargoyle Prime, B, Timber Wolf B, the Ice Ferret with Artemis LRM 5 racks, the multi AMS lights, etc).

Oh, interesting.

And by the way, I'm releasing the Diomede. Tried writing on it a few times, didn't feel inspired. I'll let someone else tackle it.

Sounds foolish - but I'll do it...   ;)

Anyone mind if I have a crack at the Falconer after this?  I appreciate it's not on the list but if I do something without many variants I can probably get it done promptly...

I've just had a bit of a realisation.  I'm moving house next week and there's an excellent chance I won't have internet connection on april the 1st.  Could would anyone mind if I took an earlier (or later) date?

No problem! April 5th any better?
And I'll mark the Falconer down for you!

I'm as likely to have internet problems on the 5th as the 1st - the 8th would be much better unless Marauder648 is prepared to swap the 29th, which will definitely not be a problem day.

Hmm..let's put you in for the 29th, then, so that you don't have to wait too long.
Is that OK with you, marauder? Getting the 1st instead?

I was mostly looking to see if any less regular writers felt ready for the 8th; if not, I think I'll grab it myself since you're posting on the 1st.
That good by you?

Oh boy...I hope you're ready to have a bunch of FWL fanboys argue with each other, hahaha

I'll pepper the Perseus with some sarcasm and optimism, it'll be fine. Someone's being an idiot in comments, i figure mods can deal with them.
And i'll drag up some examples of bad heavies (not necessarily an easy task)... anything looks good when compared to something worse, lol
EDIT Oh, wait, FWL has some bad heavies. Well, this is awkward. Ah, well, whatever.
