Don't see any spikes on the rear torso. Could do so on a Delphyne mebbe ...
* 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"

Ever have one of those days where you don't realize you posted the Alt config variant first, fell asleep, got up & went to work, came back home, commented in confusion, and only *after* someone else commented, realized you posted the Alt config variant first?
