The Rokurokubi is done and ready to go whenever!!

I'd like to reserve the ultimate mook 'Mech, AKA the Storm Raider, unless someone has a request they'd like to see fulfilled!

Nahuris sent me a PM requesting the Blade. I have finished an article for it, so, place it on the 23rd. I also have written articles on the Volkh, Scourge, and Atlas III.

Don't think so, I've been posting my requested reservations in this thread and it usually gets put up in the first post not too long afterward (a reminder or something looks like it can sometimes help).

I'd love someone to work up the Men Shen.

Noting that no one had the date reserved, I put the Scourge up. For the 13th, I'd like to submit the Atlas III. He does kinda look like Jason with a minigun...

Also, after checking the directory ten or more times, I have written articles on the Phoenix Hawk L, Phoenix Hawk, Catapult II, Phoenix Hawk IIC, Fire Moth and Dasher II.

I'll have the Cave Lion ready for the next available slot. It should be out of the moratorium, correct?

Moonsword,

Would you be so kind to do an article on the Templar III when time permits? I've been using them a bit lately in games against the DCMS and I'm curious about your opinion on them. Especially the trade offs reached in mounting the heavier engine and gyro vs. the extra weight spent on weapons in the original Templar.

Thank you so much,

Mad

It may be a bit until I can get to this - the 20th at the earliest - but I'll give it a look.

EDIT: Also, for the authors, if you could take a look at the new post in Fan Articles Policies?  We've had a request from further up to try and make sure certain information goes into the articles.

If I may, I would like to request that someone cover the Warhammer. All currently known variants, plus the IIC models.

I'll probably have a double-feature for the Templar and Templar III ready on Friday.  They're so closely related it just makes sense to me to cover them together.

Either way, looking forward to next Friday now.

I've cranked out what was left on the Templar III and posted it.  We'll see when the Templar supplemental article follows - it's going to be a review of the configurations, mainly, including the new ones from RS3067 Unabridged.

I confess I'm looking forward to the Templar article more than the Templar III ...

* Because Battletech is a conspiracy by Habsburg & Bourbon pretenders - MadCapellan
* The Hellbringer is cool, either way. It's not cool because it's bad, it's cool because it's bad with balls - Nightsky
* It was a glorious time for people who felt that we didn't have enough Marauder variants - HABeas2, re "Empires Aflame"

And, rather strangely, I wrote up most of a Kingfisher MotW last week. Needs a bit of polish and finish - and it'll be a casual piece - but I could have it ready this week (Friday night) or next. Let me know if/when I'm cool to post. Thanks!

I have an article on the Guillotine Iic and sibling I'm completing right now... of course now to check if it's ever been done.  Searching the site revealed nothing but, you never know!

Have we had an Ares/Poseidon article yet or just the people asking about it?

Indeed.
Someone should also get Lyran Archer to talk about his preferredonly mech of choice
