30-ton Battlemech UrbanMech


Capellan Regular Unit Paint Scheme


This walking turret is scary in urban settings where it's hard for everyone to move.  Slow and ponderous, the lack of a large engine to move it allows it to carry a wallop.














Reaper Spattered Gore, Reaper Scorched Metal, Reaper Sunshine Yellow and Reaper Black.  Washed with Reaper Walnut Brown.

I don't recall ever seeing the mini, so I never realized how disproportionately large the legs were.


That UrbanMech is a tricky fella! Good job on this guy! I always find that edition of the UrbanMech's feet to look odd. ::P:

What better mech to represent the Big Stompy Robot meme than a mech that looks like it forgot the top half of its torso.


Gimme a pair of mech legs, and a gun. It's all I need!


Now I can only picture it as a pair of robot pants.

A nicely painted urbanwreck! Really thin wire can make a nice antennae for this little guy too


Yeah.  They also make excellent puncture wounds.  I tend to avoid them these days.  :)


I have several pieces of the wire that came with the Ral Partha mechs back in the day.  The kind that didn't cut with simple wire cutters.  Nor did they bend that easily.


Stabbed a Highlander's antenna through my hand once.  Same mech fell off a table sometime later and landed antenna first.  Sat there quivering like a dart in the hardwood floor.


So, yeah, I don't bother with them much.

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

      Nova and madcat


      Puma and ryoken

      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.

      A pair of speed painted 3d printed robots I completed during my 4th of July Paint Binge.  I found the GW Contrast paints to be very good at covering large smooth surfaces easily.  The red one was from a KS project by EC3D. (and yes, it's missing an arm) I am not sure where my husband found the other one, but maybe Thingaverse.
