Freebirth surat! How dare you call Trueborn warriors goofy! We respect the visions of the Novacats, the Necrosia quests of the Seekers of Goliath Scorpion, the dreams of Jade Falconers,the tantrums of the Ice Hellions,  the Lore of Clan Fire Mandrill...

 

Well,...

 

You may have a point...

I am quite fond of the nova cats, and their absolute embrace of their own silliness, with their neon crazy parade paint schemes. 

 

although I do kind of wonder if there's an undocumented psychotropic effect to stranamechty's atmosphere or food. Sort of like how liao rulers all end up nuts because the crown jewels are toxic.

They have an alternate parade scheme where the warriors paint their mechs with neon symbols of cats and other icons related visions they have had.

Oh, okay.  Darn.  A part of me was all "oh sweet, candy kid raver mechs! 

 

That doesn't quite sound as insane(ly awesome).

there's no reason you couldn't do that anyway. 

 

if nothing else it would be totally in keeping with a solaris mech

One of the sharpest units I ever played against was a Nova Cat Binary and every mech was painted like a different predatory animal. Pretty snazzy actually.

True, but other than the UrbanMech I can't think of anything that would wind up being a "solo" for me. 

 

...Well, apart from the four Wolverines I'm going to end up with, lol

 

A few Solaris mechs... We shall see.  I'll have to look into the Nova Cats, maybe a part of their fluff will entice me, even if they are felines.

4 wolverines you say... have you considered painting them as the infamous CLAN WOLVERINE! (who are either dead, or pirates, or the secret masters of the innersphere)

The camo specs PDF is ready for download and has hundreds of artwork pics of mechs and paint schemes.

Yeah, uhm... Their lore has me all full of nope.  I'll only ha e four because you get one in beginners box, one in A Game of Armored Combat, and then two in retaliation.

I keep meaning to read that.  I downloaded it about five minutes after the link went live...

Yeah, as much as I wanted more elementals, a freebie UrbanMech thrown in alongside cardboard standees... I'm game. 

 

Still wish they'd clarify if it's per person, or per bundle.

It's actually far weirder than that. It's just one unit within the Clan, and they cover their mechs in neon-colored Aztec glyphs. The end result is so distracting that enemy forces have an initiative penalty for the first few turns of every game, as pilots's optic nerves slowly adjust.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
