I love what you're doing, and the battlemaster was the bomb! The painting on the cockpit really made the rest of the model shine that much more!

Thank you. Cool

I just realised how low the quality of the group shot was that I took of my Otomo Command Lance. So, for all of you out there here is a better one (actually it is even two)  Tongue




From left to right:
Tai-i (= Captain) Kasugai Chisei in an "Orion"
Tai-sa (= Colonel) Oda Hideyoshi in a "Battlemaster"
Tai-i (= Captain) Suzuki Hitoshi in a "Marauder"
Sho-sa (= Major) Minimida Yosuke in an "Awesome"

Time for some opposing forces though...

This plastic Citytech "Mad Cat" (Timberwolf) is the first tester for the scheme I am going to paint my 1st Jaguar Guard Stars in.

According to Camospecs the Mechs of Beta Galaxy are painted in
Quote
"a multilayered grey camouflage consisting of horizontal streaks, meant to represent a mist. Bloodnamed warriors paint large felid eyes on the torso of their 'Mechs, and may even add other felid features as well. Kills are marked by smaller pairs of eyes placed randomly on the 'Mech, though some warriors have taken to placing them near the weapons which delivered the final blow. The Elementals of Beta Galaxy have been seen in both this scheme and the traditional jaguar spot camo."

I wasn't sure about the "felid eyes" part. I looked at the painted examples provided on Camospecs and I did not really like that feature of the scheme, so I left it off.

Also, thinking of Luthien being the capital world of the Draconis Combine, cityfighting would more or less take place no matter what and that lead me to the conclusion that I could turn the "streaks representing mist" into a nice urban camo pattern.

Camospecs also painted the cockpit glass in blue which to me didn't make the most aggressive of all invading clans look as menacing as I would imagine them. I therefore turned those into an evil and dangerous looking red tone. I hope you like it.

Sexy.  When (not if) I start into the 3050 Clan era, the only mechs I'll have right now are three Mad Cats (more than enough for a small game...).  I'll be waiting for the Alpha Strike plastic Clanners I s'pose.

I have plenty of old Ral Partha metals to compensate until the AS box becomes available  Cheesy .
The latest Catalyst products (to include the new re-seen Mechs to come in the future) seem to even more increase my interest in the franchise.

Thanks to a few days off I found plenty of time to spend it on the table, painting more figures. The "Ryoken" is the next one finished for my 1st Jaguar Guards Command Star. The miniature is the old Ral Partha sculpt.

Enjoy. Wink

The last weekend was busy. I had to attend various family related visits and Sunday also is our regular 40k gaming afternoon. Nonetheless, with no further delay here it is: another Mech for my Smoke Jaguar forces, a "Vulture".

Actually, this is a kitbash of the old Ral Partha arms and legs, combined with the newer re-sculpt parts of Iron Wind Metals' Vulture (centre torso, left and right missile bays).

How do you like it?

Awesome job.  The Vulture has always been my favourite of the heavy Clan mechs.  Well done.  Love the paint scheme and I love the cockpit detail.

Thanks!  Cheesy Maybe I can get another Clan mech done until the weekend or at least shortly after.

Love the mech. The camo pattern is really good, as is the kitbash. The Vulture is my second favorite New Mech, right after the Mad Cat.
Have you ever seen the Armorcast 1/50th scale version of this mech? It's a thing of beauty.

Thanks, Michka. Yes, I do know the Armorcast ones, big and beautiful.  Love

Another week has passed, another Mech has been finished. This time its one more plastic figure from the old Citytech boxed set (2nd Edition). The "Daish" is the heaviest Mech those clanners are going to throw against the defenders of House Kurita.

Today I have put final touches onto my "Loki" Mech for the 1st Jaguar Guard's Command Star.

With all five miniatures painted, that one is completed. Here are  a couple of shots from the miniature (old Ral Partha sculpt).  Wink

Awesome.  So, when can we expect a battle report?

Erm, when the other two lances of the Inner Sphere and the other four Stars of Clan Mechs are painted.  Laugh
