The prettiest princess in all the Clans
« on: 14 December 2019, 14:23:18 »
A group of my friends and I went to Gen Con this year.  One of them loves to paint minis and is really talented, but she is not into the giant robots.  While looking through the Ironwind booth I asked her if she would be willing to paint some mechs for me.  She told me that she didn't she could do a mech right, because she liked painting magical creatures more.   I proceeded to grab a Balius and showed it to her.  "What about a horse mech?" I asked.   After looking at it, she responded by saying "If I paint this, it is going to look a my little pony toy."  I responded, "Hell yeah, this is a universe where a guy painted a mech totally pink just cause his mech was called a panther and he wanted to make a Pink Panther reference.  Somewhere there has to be a Brony fan out there piloting a battlemech."   I put the Balius back on the shelf and we all had a good laugh.   This morning I get a package in the mail from her, I laughed so hard I almost dropped it. 

All I can say now is watch out for the legendary clan Mechwarrior "Glitter Bomb"!!!!!!!

Is that a translucent resin base? This is pure awesomeness.
But as a matter of fact I was quite busy getting potty-trained at the time and had no time for interstellar politics.- ykonoclast

At this point I think we can safely say there are more pictures of the Balius on this board than there are canon available mechs.  ;D

Great work!

I find this...amusing.

I'm on the Khan list for the Clan Invasion Kickstarter.   I'm very tempted to use my cannon character from rewards to pilot this beauty.  I would love to have this be a cannon paint job for a Clan Mechwarrior.    ;D
