I actually enjoy his posts, personally, but maybe I'm crazy.

Neither precludes the other.  :D

I was just looking at the schedule and I saw the Pillager on there. Did we get new variants not covered in either of these two articles?

There's a Long Tom Cannon Pillager in XTRO:Liao (which is what prompted the request from icchan over AIM).  I wasn't aware of the StarDate Pillager, although judging from the article, either it or its close cousin was slipped into RS3058 Unabridged.  If you want to do the update article, I'll be happy to change the schedule.  I haven't gotten around to doing more than arranging a few things in my head at this point.

I forgot about the XTRO: Liao one, no problems you can do it if you'd like, I was just curious what was coming next. I've still got to finish my Kuma article.

Fair enough.  Thanks for pointing out the StarDate article - I'll make sure both get appended to mine.

It's noted in the Outstanding Requests area now.  If no one picks it up in the next couple of weeks, I'll cover it.

Most of my writing is currently on hold due to real life issues sadly.  I *want* to get these done, but I may not be able to start again for a few days.

Just a reminder that the Bombard already has made its appearance.

If you want, pencil me in for the Juggernaut on the 18th. And if no one else bites, the Paladin on the 25th.

I'll do the Men Shen if you haven't already started it Moonsword, and I'll put in for the Thunderbolt update as well.

flamberge at 75%, can be penciled in for about three to four weeks from now pending review passes by editors.

I haven't.  Outstanding Requests is where I put those articles we've had requests to do but authors haven't claimed.

Not since before TRO3050U was released, apparently.  Want me to add it to the outstanding requests list?

Sure!

I wound up claiming it for myself but I don't know when yet.  The Pentheslea is going to get crunched out for pre-reading by my chosen editors.

I'll take the Morrigan on a later date, if no one has claimed it.

If you're going to give the article a quick once-over before I post it, Johannes, then I'm game.  8)

Should I assume you want a spot on the schedule, then?

Has there been an article on the Specter, if not can I do it?

The Spector?  The article's fallen out of the archives, so no, there's not one.

You're up for 25 March 2011.  I can move that around if you like.

I did the Spector last time, so if you need any help or any perspective, I can certenly lend my hand.  Though I still maintain that I'd like to see new articles for a new board, by and by.

As for myself, I'd love the 3/18 spot.  Maybe the Mongoose, which I never got to cover last go around.  And perhaps a time in may to do one of the new Golden Century mechs, like the supprisingly excelent Coyotl.
