Unit/Scheme of the Month: Draconis Combine
« on: 03 September 2018, 21:09:24 »
Happy Labor Day all!  Hope everyone has been having an enjoyable weekend.

Thank you to all our posters last month.  Some really nice stuff was shared there.  The League was made proud by that turnout! :thumbsup:

This month we pay a visit to the Draconis Combine.  So bring out your units from the DCMS!  Sword of Light, Benjamin Regulars, Legion of Vega; march them all on down.  Show your honor and pride for the Dragon!

Being a Davion fan, I have no great love for the Combine, but I still have to show the enemy a little respect.  I have one lance for this month.  An early try at the First Sword of Light.  Sorry I don't have a better photo at the this time.  I'll actually be taking another swing at the Sword of Light next year with a full company.

Next month will be Desert & Urban camo, plus any Halloween specials that might be out there.  November will see us taking a stroll into the snake pit and saying hello to Clans Cloud Cobra, Steel Viper, and Star Adder.  Watch your step.

Have a great month everyone!  Now, let it rain minis! 8)

Another Davion warrior over here, but the Dragon is a strong second choice faction. As you might imagine, it makes some of the recent developments in the fiction a little tough to read. Who should I root for? Anyway, here is my lance of Sworders. Sadly, the floor wax I used was just a bit too subtle and the shading is tough to notice. Bit of a bummer, but I’m still happy to have ‘em.

With far too many Swords of Light out there, something different is needed...  ;)

What about some Izanagi Warriors?

Or some Ryuken Roku?

This is an ongoing project; i intend to paint an entire company of mechs, all of them to be combined into one C3-company.

Or just some simply camoflagued Dieron Regulars?

The Grim Reaper is one of my first mechs painted, so there is quite a difference in paint quality...

Here's a lance of the 3rd Benjamin Regulars I just finished recently.

P.S. @Starbuck-Nice job on those 15th Benjamin, they look really good!

There is that one Panther for the Benjamin Regulars. No more units in that camo so far.  :(

But then there are some Genyosha units i can present. ;)

Here are 2 units from my MWDA scale Alpha Strike collection. The first is my 3145 Legion of Vega Command Lance, in red and grey.
The second is my 3145  5th Sword of Light Special Operations star made of all quads, I named them "the Blood Pack" all in red.
The third is my regular scale Battletech 5th Sword of Light company, with 2 custom mech minis added. I sold this unit, sadly, but I will use half the new box set to start rebuilding it. Nobody makes better Btech villains than the dirty Snakes!! 😁

Some 1st Ghost

That is an incredible paintjob on this unit! I really like how unique each mech is painted. Do you have a detailed pic of that Naginata?

Here you go. This is a really old paint job and pretty rough but still works I guess.
