Happy Easter and Happy April Fools everyone  :D .  Hope the Eater Bunny was good to everyone this year.  Also a big thank you to all who posted and shared last month.  Good stuff all!  :thumbsup:

This month is mercenaries round 1, with groups in the A through M range.  That's quite a few to pick from: Blue Star Irregulars, Dismal Disinherited, Kell Hounds, just to name a few.  And as an added bonus, if you have any minis done up in any kind of April Fools silliness, please feel free to share those as well.

I have one group to share that fits the bill this month.  My battalion from the Illican Lancers 9th Rangers.  Largest single project I've done so far.  All plastic minis from the AS Lance Packs.

Big thanks again to all who post and visit here.  Next month was going to be on the Clan Wolf and Jade Falcon sourcebooks, but I think I'll expand that to just straight up Clan Wolf and Jade Falcon.  Any and all schemes welcome.  June will be our round with the Star League/Com Star/Word of Blake.  Have a great April everyone!  :)

When you have a spare mech and can't figure out what to do with it.

For April 1st, I can only post this (which was actually a present to my wife on our 30th wedding anniversary):



FOr mercs in the A-M range, I'll share my Fighting Uruk-Hai battalion (moving copyright violations ;) )
* No, FASA wasn't big on errata - ColBosch
* 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
* Because Battletech is a conspiracy by Habsburg & Bourbon pretenders - MadCapellan
* 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"

I did not expect to participate, but there are still some minis...
Dioscuri: A Bandersnatch (just the newer sculpt) and a Hunchback -4H (with the smaller AC and additional lasers).
Greenburg's Godzillas: Although i dislike the advertisement stickers, i like the scales... A Gallowglas and a Cronus.

15th Dracons

I wasn't sure if the numerical designation in the front mattered.  Or if that was a separate thread for later?

Hadn't thought about it, but since they're here, we'll just go with it.  No worrying about numbers.  Thanks for sharing  :thumbsup: !

I don't know how to put small pics, so I let the link for the only two Kell Hounds I have photos in my phone.

A long time back, I remember the semi-crittertechish clans that were joked about by WizKids.  I specifically Kelly Bonilla's Clan Pink Fuzzy Bunny.

I was inspired.
