Here's two Shadow Cat IIs and a Howler. I lost the ERML for one of the Shadow Cats so I kitbashed a close replacement.

Great looking minis, CranstonSnord, in one of my favourite Galaxy colours!

The Howler looks a slightly different green - is that just the lighting?

* The Housebook series is from the 80's and is the foundation of Btech, the 80's heart wrapped in heavy metal that beats to this day - Sigma
* To sum it up: FASAnomics: By Cthulhu, for Cthulhu - Moonsword

* The Hellbringer is cool, either way. It's not cool because it's bad, it's cool because it's bad with balls - Nightsky
* It was a glorious time for people who felt that we didn't have enough Marauder variants - HABeas2, re "Empires Aflame"

As I recall, the Howler was basecoated with Reaper Jade Green, then a coat of Partha mid-green ink. The Shadow Cats were basecoated with a 1:1 mix of Reaper Jade Green and Pale Green, then inked. IRL the difference is more subtle than the photo indicates.

I've always liked this sculpt of the Shadow Cat II.  I am not sure why the chassis is as lamented as it is. Fantastic work!
