This Old 'mech - Marauder 5S and 3M
« on: 02 July 2018, 02:41:17 »
Today, on This Old Mech, we are showcasing a rebuilt Marauder 3M and in the process of  refurbishing another to the 5S standard.

Parts on the 3M include PP Marauder feet, Supernova legs and waist with Annihilator arms, and a custom ballistic from Heavy Gear.

i didn't think that there would be a way to make the old school Mad look this good again, glad I was wrong

I agree. Conditionally. I have no qualms kicking the favorite faction in the crotch--repeatedly. But the fact of the matter is, I prefer to kick EVERYBODY in the crotch as often as possible, like a game of whack a mole, only here's it's whack a crotch. Because we're playing in a wargame universe, and if you're NOT getting kicked in the crotch (repeatedly), then you're not in the ****** game.
