Which means these guys look a little out of place.





I was going for this:

Very nicely done, and a great recreation of a classic artpiece!

I must say though, have you considered going back and adding the black and orange details to the chest & shoulders of the other minis? You've done it well, it's very effective, and the other minis look somewhat bland for the lack of it. Not canon I know, but ...

Blasphemy!  Can'st thou see the source art before thee!?

Really, though, I thought about it and then decided I'd rather match the box; I really love some of the old RP boxes.  I have thought about going back and painting over the blue portions of the Steiner fist, logo, though.

Just on that, are the Wasp's left thigh and left hand blue, or is it just meant to be shadow?

Either way, either that Wasp is the CO's ride, or the guy the CO caught trying to sneak the CO's daughter back onto base after curfew. Talk about "shoot here" :)

Hmmmm.....haven't given it much thought, since the blue ends above the knuckle on the hand, I'm going with shadow. 

Hopefully whomever the pilot is, he's smart enough to jump at least 150 meters every 60 seconds.

The artwork used for the 1980s packaging is some of my favorite from the franchise, and I love the work you've done to emulate this!

From the grave, I summon thee!

Took a few minutes to match the Steiner logo look on these guys to the original artwork, then spun up some quick snow terrain.

Very nice!

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.
