Maybe after the lance is painted.

I'm thinking Royal Black Watch.

So we have  2 ER-Large Laser, Sweet Spot at range 7 - 6/9 mover

Crab-27b is 5/8, not 6/9

All 5 mechs are 5/8.

The Gauss on the Excalibur will be the big hole puncher of the group, but the LB10 & 5x 8 LL hits isn't anything to sneeze at either.

So far I'm thinking Royal Shadow Hawk, Royal Crab, and Royal Flashman but I'm drawing a blank on what I should use as the last mech.

I kept meaning to ask.

IS there a Royal Flashman?

I only know of the 8K, so I was wondering if there is something I missed.

Yeah, I'd thought there was when I made the first post, but then went back and checked and realized I was wrong.

So the Lance will just get a standard Flashman.

A "standard" Flashman is a badass in my book any day  :thumbsup:

Even the low-tech flashman is a badass, so I didn't understand that my 'CO' decided to take a Whammy in the last scenario we played, the Whammy only made sense when we didn't had used a Firestarter as well.
Since MW2 Mercs this guy is always on my dream list of mechs to have, although we need a nicer model, maybe I will try to create a 3d printable miniature when I have some time to spare.

A) I've already stated multiple times that I'm going to go with the Excalibur.

B) This is a Royal Shadowhawk, which drops the AC 5 and missiles of the 2H in favor of an LB-10X, two SSRM 2s, and a second medium laser.  It's an effective medium to close range fighter.

If customs are allowed you could make one. It was popular enough that there's no reason there could have been one. We just haven't seen it yet.

The primary purpose of this lance is for getting them painted up.
