Miniatures of the Fortnight #60: Catapult and Catapult II
« on: 17 January 2019, 23:20:09 »
The Catapult is one of several LRM-based 'Mechs from the good ol' days of Technical Readout: 3025.  It is one of the first mostly LRM 'Mechs with decent maneuverability but, really, not enough ammunition.  If you'd like to know more about using it in game, it has a 'Mech of the Week article and an Alpha Strike 'Mech of the Week article.

The Catapult has several metal sculpts:It also has three plastic sculpts:
  • The "stocky" PlasTech sculpt.
  • The plastic miniature released by CGL in the previous editions of the intro box and the Command Lance Pack, based on the beginners set sculpt .
  • The plastic miniature in CGL's current (or upcoming) Game of Armored Combat box.
The Catapult has a younger, larger sibling, the Catapult II.  It has its own 'Mech of the Week article and its own recently released miniature (20-5159).

If you have any of these painted, please share pictures.  We'd love to see them!

Like always, thank you for reading and a special thank you to those of you who post.

Our next two fortnights will be:
  • Clan (1/28): Rifleman IIC
  • Inner Sphere (2/11): Trebuchet

I'll need to collate and collect all my Catapults, but here is a start.

My magnetized omni-Catapult.  Can choose from several configs to represent on the board.

I have four Catapults, two plastic and two metal.

First is the model from the last intro box and one of the first minis I painted when I got back into the hobby (and it shows  :) ).  Second one is the modern sculpt from IWM.  Third up is the AS lance pack version from my Illician Lancer battalion.  And last is my K2/K4 model in forest camo.

Welcome to the Federated Suns.  Please keep all arms and legs inside your mech at all times.  Also, please pick up your trash, including any Capellan hardware you may have brought with you.  Littering is punishable by a 1,000,000 C-Bill fine and an invasion by the local RCT.  Have a nice day!

Ahah! Finally!

Now, my Team Green can have its place. 

Along with a Federated Suns Armored Cavalry one off the crap-plastic out of the post-25th Anniversary box I did for a friend.

Aside: When Team Brown's is done, I'll put it up here, too.

But, that's not all. I have my own unique offering to add to the list: My travel pack, map-scale Catapult. It's been repainted, and when I have a moment, I'll post the new pic. But, here it is with its original coat.

I managed to keep the cockpit glass transparent, too.

C1 Cats and a Butterbee custom. (I should really revisit that one with a new mini)

Only a singe C4 in Tikonov Republic Guard colors.
The only minor change done to this mini was filling the gap over the launcher axis.
