I just realized that we've got two 'Mechs left before we finish TRO3145:Lyran Commonwealth: the Jaguar and the Storm Raider.

Almost there!

Anyone feeling brave enough to take on the junker that is the Storm Raider?

Just post a gif of a toilet flushing.  That's all the write up the Storm Raider deserves.

Amusingly, it seems the 'Mech is fluffed as being utter trash. Obviously, the design is constrained by ClickyTech... so it seems it is written as being more or less a failure.

It is amusing enough i'll consider writing about it. Not reserving it though, not yet.

Yeah, who knows, maybe I'll shit out a Storm Raider write-up this weekend.

More like, got a thing for DA units and just been on a quad roll lately. Plus these ones don't have too many variants to get in the way of my other writing.

Got a business meeting after work tomorrow, so you'll have to wait until Wednesday for me to be able to drop the Tessen.
Alternatively, I might use my own back-up and post the Tessen a little bit later.

Anyone want to do Friday or next Tuesday?

Was anyone supposed to have something up today, err, yesterday? Looks like no one volunteered.

Like I said i'll bang out the Starslayer and get that thrown at the board, its 4 relatively boring variants.  I'll post it in about 3 hours once i'm awake again.

How dare you not have something written about your hobby at this precise moment for my own personal enjoyment!   :P

Seriously though, you guys who do these "______ of the Week" articles totally rock.

I'd like to (re-)claim the following MotWs with the caveat that I don't have them planned anytime soon beyond "maybe this year":
- Wolverine (per the early bits of this thread; no repost, a new article. We'll see if this or XTRO Prim V drops first, bwahahahaa)
- Hornet (ahem. :-[ )
- Trebuchet (this one's a new claim. It needs to be covered. With love.)
- Blackjack (yes. Still one of my favs. I... I will get it done, if I get my groove back with the others.)

So please reserve the above, please be patient, please give me a nudge if I drop off the face of the earth.

So do we have an updated list anywhere, of which mechs from all the Tro's and such have YET to get covered?

Don't think anyone has made one. There's a list of articles (last sticky) but which one is from which TRO? A lot of work that one.

Yeah, its probably easier to sit with that thread open and then go through the TRO to see which ones are missing.
