Battletech - VI Legion

Recommended Posts

It's an awesome Awesome!

 

Nitpick: Since this is a plastic mini from the GAoC box, the "Iron Wind Metals" tag should probably be replaced with "Catalyst Game Labs".

As I paint more stuff for this legion, I plan to post them in this thread, and the vast majority of them will be IWM minis. I wasn't sure if you could add tags after a thread was started, so I decided to get ahead of the game as it were.

Just keep in mind you can only ha e a total of four tags now per thread..  They never did say why the hange went from ten to four when the forum update happened a while back. 

 

Edit: also, nice mech. ^_^

Great paint job...

But

Am I missing an inside joke?

He has Roman Numeral VII on him.

7

not 6

 

That's just the ID number for the individual mech, not the regimental emblem. I don't have any VI Legio decals right now, but I hope to get some eventually. That's why I also haven't put gloss varnish on the cockpit glass or weapons lenses yet, either.

A few more, the last for a while now that my matte sealer spray has run out.

 

A heavy fire support group consisting of a Behemoth, two Heavy LRM Carriers, and two Pikes:

Finally, going back to IV Legion, a pair of Thunderbird heavy fighters:

A main battle tank Century. One of the Marsdens is actually the one posted above, but here's the final formation.

      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.
