Before C.A.V.

Recommended Posts

Since I have been posting, I have displayed C.A.V., Star Trek Attack Wing, Star Wars X-Wing, Star Wars Armada, Star Fleet Battles, MATAAC, but not Battle Tech/Battle Droids.  So to correct the situation, the extent of the BT force when CAV intervened :  This is a Taurian Corps (more equivalent to a standard Division but in keeping with the stated structure...)


Corps HQ:post-9266-0-87001700-1482680723_thumb.jpg

Corps assets of: Cyclops Command Mech, 2 Atlas Security, 2 Artillery Batteries (Bombardier, Longbow), an A/A Rifleman battery, 3 Stealth Exterminators, and miscellaneous, towed hvy artillery, helo transport and security robots. Helo is from Superior and the robot were from 40K Terran troops, I think.post-9266-0-82187100-1482680877_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-71257400-1482680939_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-15517300-1482681005_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-96642600-1482681062_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-52432000-1482681160_thumb.jpg

This last group was for a scenario for  the location of an abandoned Star League Base hidden on the edge of Taurian Space.  The base was rumored to be full of new Toros and Crabs never deployed, which you can see there are 25 of each:post-9266-0-03571800-1482687277_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-72150500-1482687418_thumb.jpgpost-9266-0-87828200-1482687577_thumb.jpg


Any mechs that are not primed were acquired during the CAV build up.  More jobs to add to the list.


Any shots of something not clear enough let me know and I will get an in close picture.

That's an awesome display of old school Battle Tech goodness!

As for "old", I think the 2 Cestus's (1st. Rgt., 1st. Bn., 1st. Co., 2nd. Lance/Platoon), the Bombardier (Corps HQ), and possibly the Flea (in most of the Command elements) are the oldest castings so far as I have found.  Maybe someone else knows if any are older.

And before Battletech:post-9266-0-14129500-1483369887_thumb.jpg Unfortunately I lost one of the models years ago and the other is in need of repairs.


And going from this, where you blacked out the blocks not used according to the Mech being used:post-9266-0-70157300-1483370154_thumb.jpg

      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.

      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!



      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
