I absolutely hated having Clan Mechs with FF in my IS campaigns. Seriously, how does a 3060 Merc keep his Masakari armored?

Nay, just needs a pinch of fairy dust every time it needs the FF.
Anyone can redesign the Hellbringer's base chassis.  Real men work only with the pod loadout- Natasha K (forum poster)

Moving conversation from the Dire Wolf MotW thread.

Huh?  IIRC the A has the same problem with the Gauss Rifle, 8 shots while the SRM has 2t of ammo.  I cannot remember if the C has too much Streak ammo.  Then JHB pointed out the E, which has a ATM6 and ATM12.  I think the H, HH and Q all have ammo problems but I would have to recheck their sheets- H & Q too many SRM launchers vs ammo, and the HH suffering like the A.

With standard SRMs you at least have the excuse that you can carry multiple ammo types.

With Streak launchers, there's only one ammo type available so concern about running out of ammo is the only reason to stock up (yes, I remember when SSRM 2s could fire Infernos, but this is a 6 pod and the configuration came out long after the rule changed anyway).

The C variant is one of the few variants that doesn't have excessive ammo for the wrong weapon.

The H variant doesn't carry ammo, it's an all-laser config.

The Q is perfect, so obviously he doesn't have any idea of what he is talking about.

Good writeup.

Are not the G and Q configs associated with Quinn Kerensky?
I thought the Wolves had maintained exclusive control of the Kerensky bloodname, at least through the start of the Jihad...
I'm rarely right... Except when I am.  ---  Idle question.  What is the BV2 of dread?
Apollo's Law- if it needs Clan tech to make it useable, It doesn't deserve those resources in the first place.
Sure it isn't the most practical 'mech ever designed, but it's a hundred ton axe-murderer. If loving that is wrong I don't wanna be right.

Not the Bloodname but rather the genetic heritage. Quinn didn't fit in with the Wolve's status quo and was 'lightly defended' when the Falcons trialed for her. She's been taking it out on the Wolves ever since.

Does that mean the Summoner needs-

Quirk:  Bad Logistics
     If the ammo can be mismanaged, it will be on this mech.


The above is the original comment that spawned the discussion of the configs.  Since I did not have the ammo counts handy I was doing it from memory.

Being an Omni, I'm not sure it would really be valid. Being that most configs are batshit-stupid in terms of their layout, I wouldn't ARGUE it either.

Quirks are for chassis not habits.  :P

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

Lol, so instead of saying its a mech quirk, you are saying it should be a AToW trait for Jade Falcon MW & techs?

Maybe it should be blamed on the Society?

It takes a village to design an Omni loadout.

That would explain a couple of Warhawk configs...
