I'd like to see articles about classic 40 tonners: Assassin, Cicada, Clint, Hermes II, Sentinel, Worthless... er... Whitworth. Even some light 'Mechs are better than that pile of trash. So I'd like to read articles that point out redeeming qualities.
You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights errant, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it.

We do have schedule threads that I keep merging these request threads into.  Please quit posting individual threads about it.

Where are you hiding this mythical thread?  :P

Well, I'm going to request a few more 'Mechs for my writing pleasure. Mostly because some are calling me... Horned Owl/Peregrine, Viper/Dragonfly, Timber Wolf/Mad Cat, and Battlemaster.

Aw, crudstunk! I had absolutely no idea I was moved into this slot! I never noted anything down when Kotetsu suggested the last swap. Mea maxima culpa!

Kotetsu gave me a heads-up and even suggested another swap. I also started a quick Hornet write-up, but in the meantime, Master Arminas posted his rather cool Hellbringer article - I'd suggest that counts as a MotW, no?

Okay, jymset, I've moved your article out to the 13th of July to replace the Mauler that was posted early.

Hmm.  The Sixth of June is a Wednesday, unfortunately, so it doesn't really suit Vee of the Week or 'Mech of the Week's schedules.  Hey, sillybrit, think you can post an article on the Djinn that day?

I could do a WSotWhenever or DSotWhenever...the Naga II needs a writeup, or do you think folding it into an entirely new Naga article would be good?

I'd say cover them both, personally.  On the other hand, I've had at least one article bounce off the character limit for a single post, so take that as you will...

Eh, it's not like there's more than two variants of the Naga yet. All else fails, I'll split the Naga II into a reply immediately after the first.

Throwing in a request for the Uziel?  There was one, but it's coming up as not available in the directory.  I admit I've started to like this little speedy pocket Warhammer

If there's any 'Mech I know, it's probably the Uziel.  Think I could try my hand at an article?

So, I got really bored and wrote it up anyway (I have a lot of free time).  Is there a slot any time soon I can post it?

EDIT: That's not already taken.

Now that I've gotten over my nerve and actually written one of the damn things, you think I could put in a request to do the Summoner?

I've put it down for you as a reservation.  And I should consider redoing that section to be a little more readable at some point, but I'll do that at home, not on my lunch break.

I'm currently piddling around with the Thunderbolt article, although I need to get the Merkava started.

Are the requests for the Locust and Locust IIC for an update or a new article? (Was there an old one?)

Well... Put the Shogun into that open slot for 8/17.

And slap the Horned Owl for the next open slot after.
