I gave this as gift to a Battletech buddy, Wally. He told me a story when we first started playing about how in the mid 90's he would play with a group and use his Classic Ral Partha Stalker and just mow people down from long range. He spoke about it often and always tells the story to new players. 

 

I decided since he got me into Battletech and war gaming I would go all out for his birthday. In addition to this miniature I bought him a wet pallet, as he had never used one (i know how is that even possible), and a Battletech Mech Damage T-shirt I found on Amazon. 

 

He was blow away. Here's to you old friend! Cheers!

 

I hope you guys like this one. I really like these Mech Warrior Online designs. They are modern and updated. They have the look i've always wanted in Battletech. 

 

You'll notice if you look hard enough you can see destroyed mech markings on one side and the name big WALLY on the other. The number "16" is for the 2016. And I went with a blue cockpit glass because the shirt I bought him was blue. 

I did a combination sand and flocking on the base. The sand is painted to look like rock. He (like my other mechs) is on an MDF hex base I purchased from Waresnal.

MWO really gave some of the classic mechs a fresh new look. Particularly in the chicken leg mech designs.

 

Though I haven't touched the game in over a year, I still love my Catapult.

Completely agree with you! 

 

I think they made the Mechs look more robotic and thus made it look more like there was an actual person in them.

They made the Urbanmech plausible as a useful mech!

 

That's a feat worth recognition.

Nice mech.

 

The Urbie is my jam....

Thanks! Ya the new design of the Urban mech is so much better! 

 

Great looking mech; love seeing the Stalker so well done. I'm loving MWO and my Pirates Bane Locust!

NICE! I bought 2 of them so I will be painting up another one soon. This one was gift so the color scheme is directed but the next one will be all mine!

 

One of the best Mechs I've seen!

WOW, thanks Xherman. ::):

I'm pretty sure it's not a MWO mech, the Catalyst people on their forum were pretty explicit that doing so would require licensing from Microsoft. which would be horribly expensive.

 

That looks like a Stalker II STK-9A from the TR3145FW (that's the Technical Readout 3145 Free Worlds League), its IWM part number is 20-5116.

 

And then I actually compared the pics above to the IWM pic and no it's not. So maybe it is, I don't actually play MWO.

 

But I would like to know where to get one.....or two.

      I painted the clan side of the recent Battletech kickstarter as clan novacat. There will be a part 2 when I get more mechs. 
      Gladiator


      Nova and madcat


      Mongrels

      Puma and ryoken


      Dragonflys

      These old Battletech miniatures were painted using some fairly recent techniques I’ve generally seen referred to as “Comic Book Style Painting.”
      In addition to normal dark lining, I added dark edging to areas that would normally be the highest highlights on the minis. This creates an interesting cell shaded effect.
      These particular minis were painted to match the old (and adequagely cheesy) Battletech Cartoons. Sometimes, they would forgo normal animation to employ then-state-of-the-art computer generated animation with everything outlined in green. This is why these minis are all in a transition state between the two styles.

      The Black Widows independent company, part of the mercenary Wolf's Dragoons. In full cheesy-80s-action-movie fashion, they're a Dirty Dozen-style group of criminals and misfits molded by Capt. Natasha Kerensky into one of the most feared fighting forces in known space.

       
      Command Lance

       
      Fire Lance

       
      Recon Lance

       
      And because these are all canon characters, the pilots' names are marked.

      Witty title not found.  Honestly couldn't think of one, not even a unit name.  I blame cramped up from assembly paws.  Didn't want to go with "rides again" or something, that feels too silly... or something 
       
      A while back another forum member here sent me what I've playfully called a "welcome back to the hobby" package which had a number of things in it, but specific to this thread would be five mechs - A Masakari Prime (aka Warhawk), Black Hawk Prime (aka Nova), Ryoken Prime (aka Stormcrow), Uller Prime (aka Kit fox), and Puma Prime (aka Adder).  Now that I have an extra 3' of hobbying space that I'm hoping will be reserved as a "build-out" area, I figured it was best to get that particular use started out.
       
      But first, a soft lil "farewell, but this is not goodbye" set of pics to the previous use of the space - a hobby I was involved heavily in for over five years, and will return to at some point, but for the time being it just wasn't providing much in the way of joy.  Skip the spoiler if not interested 
       
      Okay, now what we're all really here for, the minis.

      ^As previously mentioned, I have enough to make an initial star of mechs.  For those that don't know BattleTech, a star is what the clans use for their unit sizing.  In this case, it's five mechs.

      ^First three, assembled!
       

      ^Ryoken/Stormcrow

      ^Blackhawk/Nova

      Uller/Kit Fox
       
       
      The other two will see assembly once my paws stop feeling so cramped up from holding tiny, tiny pieces and cleaning many mold lines...  In short, things begin.  Oh, and odds are I'll be going with Alpha Keshik for the paintjob.  Sure, it's the "traditional" colour for them, and it's also hot rodder's delight, but eh.  Such is life :P
