Go for it! It'd be a good article to have...are you thinking of covering the IIC in the same article? Might as well.

Or bask in radioactive fallout, in the case of the ArrowUrbie.

Wrote up and spat out the Crimson Hawk! Next up for me will be the Ursus/Ursus II.

I probably could search through, but... how long is the moratorium length again? Need to add a couple things to that Rifleman article I've got sitting in limbo...

Hermm...usually I think it's a month +, but they did have MotW specials before where they'd cover 'mechs from the new TROs. Send a PM to someone from CGL and hope for the best?

Can I request an article on the Tiburon? It intrigues me, but having not had the chance to use one yet, I'd like to see a solid breakdown of its capabilities by someone who's run it through its paces.

Well damn, I could have sworn that someone had done it already. I'd love to write on it, it's a machine that I've used a ridiculous amount.

Please, please do write that, then, because I always enjoy your analyses and the fact that you're highly experienced with it is a huge plus.

OK, even though it interests me, I'm going to ditch the Ursus (II). Someone else can pick it up if they want to.
Tiburon is already nearly done. Funny how loving a mech makes the words come so easily.

Seing as how we don't have a BAotW request thread I'll have to put my request for an article on Exoskeletons in TRO:3026 (Light Exoskeleton, Industrial Exoskeleton, Heavy Industrial Exoskeleton ) here instead

It is a species of bird.

For some reason, the Mech is not one I ever remember.  I have that trouble with a decent chunk of TRO 3058.

Play against a few, they'll haunt your dreams because they're still not dead yet...

On another note...
I can get the Stalking Spider up for next week if it's open.

Also, I'm still good for the Bowman in December and will take the Rabid Yote for December or January.
After that I'm probably taking a break, I'll be busy with a newborn.

Several times in the past weeks, I came here to post it but was apparently too late. :worktroll: I'm going to have to bow out from this week, though, I'll be offline for a couple of days.

After that I'm probably taking a break, I'll be busy with a newborn.

Thanks, Kotetsu!
Today and maybe tomorrow I'll be reposting some old MotW articles that come from the old forum. Don't mind me, I want to make sure people can find these old articles again.

Are you updating the link in the article directory?

Also it may be a politeness to check with any currently active posters around before posting something they did years ago. I remember JadeHellbringer wanting to revisit some of his old articles, rather than just reposting them.

Still, I thank you for the efforts!

The only person who can update the article directory is chanman, but I have total faith that he will do so. He's never failed in the past.

I did post this in the Pulverizer thread, but I should have reposted that here; I've PM'd all parties involved. I'm not even editing the articles without their permission. That's why I've only posted wantec's stuff so far, he was the first person to give me the green light to repost his old articles. If someone doesn't want me to repost them (or if I can't track down some posters) I'll just end up deleting what I recovered.

Has the Mercury II ever been done as one of these?  If not anyone fancy it I've liked it since its first use

Pretty sure it was done... but that was pre-Crash, so you might have a shot.

Yes, it was, by me.  I've got the original article if you want it reposted.  Or you can go ahead and take your own look at it.

It's worth comparing the design to the Coyotl if you do - there's some rather suspicious similarities in design.

I've not done one before but I could have a crack at it in a few days I'm working a lot at the moment

I think you could/should... there's only three Stalking Spiders at any rate, adding the II wouldn't be out of place really.

Yesssss!! Been waiting for that Stalking Spider!

If you've got the time to include the II, I think it'd be worth it.

10-4, I've got all my notes for the original and most for the II organized.

Should get this written tonight after the little one goes to bed.

And apparently last weekend my wife "refreshed" our laptop and now our Office is gone and I can't open any word docs.  So I'll be spending the evening reinstalling that and a host of other stuff that are now simply, gone.

I'll hopefully have this up Sunday night at the latest
