Miniature of the Fortnight #113: Nova Cat
« on: 19 April 2021, 20:56:50 »
First seen in Technical Readout: 3060, Clan Nova Cat's totem OmniMech, the Nova Cat, has been well received through the years.  I would have liked the Prime configuration when I played in the late '90's (sadly, shortly before I bought TRO: 3060) and I have a friend who would have favored the A configuration.  (He really liked the Clan ER Large Laser + Targeting Computer combo - or, at least, that's what I remember.)  If you really want to learn more about using it in game, read its 'Mech of the Week article.

The Nova Cat has two metal sculpts:If you have any minis of this sculpt, in either scale, please post pictures.  We'd love to see them!

Thank you for reading!

Our next two fortnights (or possibly months) will be:
  • 5/3: Mercury, Mercury II, and Coyotl
  • 5/17: Matador and Predator

One Nova Cat for me.  This was from around 2016 when I was really getting back into painting BT minis again. Was trying to copy the scheme I saw on a Supernova on Camospecs.  Didn't pay attention to what Clan it was until quite some time later: Clan Cloud Cobra, Zeta Galaxy.  The gray came out way lighter than it should, but I was happy with it.

Another unmoddified Nova Cat, this time for clan Ghost Bear's Alpha galaxy.

Nova Cat Prime in Ghost Bears Omega Galaxy colors.  Unfortunately, the light source is reflecting a little too heavily on the right torso and snow base.

Just 1.  Sort of a light gray with wash.  Nothing fancy.

Forgot I had built a custom version using up some extra parts I wanted to use up.   I'll put the stats in the appropriate section.
