The Periphery / Re: Taking the Bull By the Horns: Taurus Rising

For paint scheme I'm thinking of doing a couple lances in a modified First Taurian Pride scheme. The red and brown might wash out a little, so I'm thinking of maybe leaning more to a cold blue-white as a secondary pop colour instead of/in addition to the brown, and bright cockpits - maybe with some brass/bronze metallic panelling to evoke the brown that's mentioned.

You could still make the red work by darkening the brown.  I think what makes red and brown wash out on a lot of minis is that they're often of too similar a value (brightness).  Then for hue contrast, use something close to teal for the cockpits, lasers, and a marking here or there.

If you use cold blue-white instead of red, I think you still want a somewhat dark main color for the same reason.  More bronze than brass.

goes into the basement to find his Headless Horseman Atlas and finds the Captain Kirk and his 2 Red Shirts (Atlas + Commando + Dervish),  and the Pikachu Awesome and Ditto Imp.  6 mech sheets printed out.  Ready to get my mechs headcapped early and often.
What? There's no such Supernova variant. (Pretty sure custom designs are not in scope of this thread really.)
Supernovas land around 164 damage at best (Supernova 2).
Nova Prime manages 84.

And the H manages 100.

Heh... looks like the Taurians were right to go with platoons of 30...  ^-^

ASF Battle armor carriers seem underexploited in general.   For airborne insertion, it matters whether you are using the SO rule or not which would reduce the number of piloting skill rolls for a heavily armored fighter like this.

This design is also quite relevant for space insertion where you flyby an enemy large craft and drop some battle armor marines onto it's hull.

See the Clan Kirghiz C and Capellan Yùn aerofighters for a couple canon designs that also drop battle armor.
