Charistoph's Painted Products of Mechanical Mayhem
« on: 21 November 2021, 16:31:29 »
So, I have spent a decent portion of this last year increasing my Battletech collection thanks to a great FLGS and group.  I also have been painting them, having a reason to do so besides just display.

First off is my collection of Clan contraptions.


Star 1: L->R: Flamberge, Wendigo, Savage Coyote, Kit Fox, and Timber Wolf


Star 2: L->R: Ebon Jaguar, Mist Lynx, Executioner, Viper, Ice Ferret


Star 3: L->R: Grizzly, Icestorm, Warhammer IIC, Arctice Wolf, Vapor Eagle

Then proceeding to ye old FASA flexible fabrications of former fun.  These were rebased and given a quick paint for people to use at the FLGS as need required.


Brown Squad: Commando, Enforcer, Dragon, Zeus, Dervish, Cicada, Panther.


Green Squad: Jenner, Clint, Hunchback, Cyclops, Grasshopper, Dervish, Commando.

As a side note, what is the limit on threadomancy for the miniatures of the fortnight?  I may as well include theses guys in there.

The latest acquisitions to address the annals of my assault on armored assailants.  Partially of low quantity due to the necessity of reserving assets for family.

I, for one, appreciate your alliteration of awesome artifacts.

Though I feel your Brown and Green Squads are not FASA, but likely CGL-era products (just for pedantic perfidy).
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

Possibly, but they reminded me of my old 3rd Ed models, and I got them some time ago.

Flocking Four-leggers for a quantity of quads to qommit to qonquest.

Okay, that one was bad.  But I've been interested in trying out quads, and I have an odd thing about trying to use models which match the Mechs.


Sarath, Project Phoenix Goliath 5D





And yes, the Sarath's turret is magnetized to allow it to stay with the Mech in travel.  The drilling went okay.  Fitting in the magnets went okay.  But I had them set up to repelling each other.  Managed to get one out and get it glued back in the same way. :facepalm:  Obviously got it back out again an properly flipped and they are attracting each other properly again.

Tax Return arriving is such a wonderful time...  Also trying an adjustment to paint scheme.

I now have a Heavy Lance.

Centurion, Banshee, Grasshopper, Hatchetman

Did you know that the hands of Warmachine's Heavy Warjacks fit real well with Assault Mechs?  In this case, an extra bit from the Mercenary Heavy Warjack, the Rover.


Also an Urban Lance.

Raven, Hunchback, Victor, Enforcer

And a Battle Lance.

Wasp, Warhammer, Rifleman, Phoenix Hawk

My only gripe is what you did with the Warhammer cockpit.  Other than that, it all looks good.

Trying to get in that small space is a challenge.  And that's how I usually saw the original.  Think of the pilot getting a moon-roof.

Manage to get some more painting done, and for some reason, I missed posting a couple of Stars worth.

Here is the Clan Heavy Battle Star:

Crossbow, Ebon Jaguar, Turkina, Kingfisher, and Huntsman.

And a Clan Support Star:


Arctic Cheetah, Linebacker, Night Gyr, Black Lanner, and Battle Cobra.

More recently, I completed some more in the colors for our local narrative campaign's unit, the Coromodir Corsairs.

First is a second Mercury II, because stripping the old one would have been a pain:


I then purchased a Support Lance Pack for a Spider, and just decided to paint the rest of the lance in the same colors.  The one who came up with the colors wants to secure a Cyclops at some point.  And since we're on SW4 Vega at present, we may gain a Dragon at some point.

Spider, Cyclops, Thug, and Dragon (or Grand Dragon with the PPC glow...)

And yeah, the white and yellow is a PAIN!

This is an odd one, I finished 2 of these a while back, but just finished the rest of the Star today.

Clan Fire Star

Fire Moth, Cougar, Warhawk, Nova Cat, Kit Fox

I also acquired a couple salvage boxes, so they were painted up a bit differently.

Conjurer, Viper/Dragonfly

I also finished some smaller models, too.

A Protomech point.

2 Basilisks, Satyr, and 2 Rocs

And 3 Elementals

Based on 3/4" fender washers.

And just in case someone is curious as to the size ratios and perspectives between them:

I completed a few more units worth of models.

Starting with the New Beginner Box:

Vindicator and Griffin

And adding to my Inner Sphere Omnimech collection:

A Sunder and the Blackjack Omni.

Then something to ride them.

Some Inner Sphere Standard Battle Armor, based on 3/4" Fender Washers.  Can't have them on too big a base when they go to kneecap some Clanner scum, after all.

The new pictures are not showing up for me, I just see a Grey circle with a white "-" in it.

Really liking your other work, that axe wielding Banshee is terrifying.

The addresses went wonky and huge for some reason.  I tried updating them, and they got a shorter address.  Let's see if that works.

Thank you.  I just happened to look through my old Warmachine bits and thought I'd compare.  I could have put it on my Atlas, but I had already finished painting that one.  It's been an eye catcher and a favorite in my local group.

We have a narrative campaign running and I'm just seriously tempted to see if we can afford a Banshee 3S and modify it to match (already have a customized Record Sheet designed for it).

I also have a big sword and a couple maces from the same kit, so I'm trying to decide what to put it on.  Unless I get an assault on a Salvage Box, I don't have a lot of options till the Merc Boxes come out.  Basically the only IS boxes I haven't got yet are the Heavy Battle Lance, Fire Lance, and the ComStar Level IIs.   Maybe if I ever get the Command Level II, that sword might work for the Black Knight.  Of course, it's big enough to be a proper great sword for the Highlander, too... (though that would mean losing the arm cannon, hmmm).
