This Old 'mech - Marauder 5S and 3M
« on: 02 July 2018, 02:41:17 »
Today, on This Old Mech, we are showcasing a rebuilt Marauder 3M and in the process of  refurbishing another to the 5S standard.

Parts on the 3M include PP Marauder feet, Supernova legs and waist with Annihilator arms, and a custom ballistic from Heavy Gear.
