Thought I throw up the Merc group I've been working on. I'm not quite sure if it counts as a large Company or a small battalion to be honest, but me and some friends have just started getting into the system. This is meant to be a group kicking around the periphery that have some support from a wealthy inner sphere backer, that can act as the base to PCs if my friends agree to the campaign I hope to run. I should hopefully be able to write up some better lore over the next few weeks but in essence they are a unit formed out of the shattered remains of 3 others- A old SLDF regiment turned mercenary, a very backwater Peripary world that they are based on, and the mysterious backer that Commander Hawthorn is receiving funding from, as well as a HEAVILY modified Mule carrier. Thinking I would set it early 3040s, so that I have the option of bringing in the clans later if people like the system. Hopefully should be able to get some character bios up over the next few weeks as i work it out better myself =D

I have a significant amount of the Battlemechs, tanks and Troops painted already, so they may also make an appearance

Decided to finish the basic paintjobs on the mechs- I plan to go in and clean them up/ add more details at a later date.

In order of appearance on the Imgur link, as I seem to be struggling to embed them...

Command and Support demi lances. Sonja Terry Aka Red has been upgraded from a Rifleman to a Warhammer- Mostly because I found a random Salvage box in my LGS (the first one i've found in the wild) and figured it would be a good support sniper.

Scout Lance

Reserve/Cityfight Lance


And then a few tanks, troops and scout vics.

Hopefully should be able to get the expanded lore done soon- been super busy recently.
