It looks like the unit emblem is from Warrior House Ijori. (Thanks to MadCap for that one.)

Any ideas as to which campaign this scene might be from? (The invasion of Demeter, pehaps?)

Maybe its because they've been stuck with that gangly looking Duan Gung for years.  ;)
We hear that there are tumults and riots in Rome, and that voices are raised concerning the army and the quality of our soldiers. Make haste to reassure us that you love and support us as we love and support you, for if we find that we have left our bones to bleach in these sands in vain, then beware the fury of the legions.

The CC is likely to be that way because Liao Incursion release from Wizkids...they got alot neat designs for their invasion during MWDA game.

Well, the other one of those mechs is the good ol' Raven.

The first one is Tian Zong and it finally doesn't look... well, Dark Age-y:

At first, I thought it was a modified Legacy just from the mounted guns on the sides of the head, but then you pointed out the MWDA unit. Suddenly, I have visions of write ups about the adaptation of former Blakest units by Capellans.

So are these things "true" supplementals ala 3085 or pick your own content interest like the XTROs?

The 3145 TROs are "true" supplementals -- these are the designs in general use at this time.

A question. I suppose its so we can get more units etc and keep the books from being HUUUUGE but what happened to the days of the TRO's having -everyone- in it, clans, the lot, rather than, house, faction, corner shop etc.

Herb already stated that there will be a print TRO 3145. As with all previous print TROs, we can assume that it will include units from all faction.

The Tian-zong?

It has twin Gauss Rifles, ER MLs in the arms, and Stealth armour. At least, the MWDA version did.

Pretty sure it was dual gauss and ER mediums in the Dark Age... it's a bigger mech 70-80 tons or something.

Someone from the AOD world will be along shortly I'm sure to tell me I'm wrong. :)

There are two versions of the Tian-zong listed. One has two ER Mediums and a pair of Gauss Rifles. The other has a pair of Light Gauss Rifles and a pair of ER Large Lasers.
