This thread just goes from strength to strength. Can we see a group shot of the force?

Awesome! (even though there's no Awesome in the group  ;D ).

The striking colour scheme really ties them together as a coherent force. Even more so than a completely camouflaged group for some reason 8)

Very cool  8)

I was surprised at how big some of the tanks are... they are almost Ogre sized :) .

Jup, they are quite big but should actually 10% bigger, at least that is what i have read in the web.

Awesome! (even though there's no Awesome in the group  ;D ).

Thanks. Well... maybe there will be an Awesome, who knows... ;)

Fantastic! I do love me some Battletech, and you've done a fantastic job all round.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who doesn't like the traditional hex bases either ;)

Does the relative size of tracked units compared to mechs bother anyone else? For example, in the shot of the Bulldogs and the Wolfhound, it doesn't look like the tanks are really 60 ton when the mech is only 35 ton. And the same goes when compared to the 50 ton Centurion.

Hi!

Yes, the sizes are a little problem. You could argue about that for a long time. Here it is that the 'Mechs are a little too big. Theoretically, they would even fit for 15mm.



As the 'Mechs look more impressive when they are a bit bigger, I leave them that way.

Oh, yes... there are some new Dracs:

Very interesting; can't wait to see what you do with those, but they're looking good already.

If you don't mind me asking though; what make is the tile in your 2nd picture? I have long been planning on making a dungeon crawl table using tiles exactly like that, but the one thing stopping me was having to invest time and effort into creating the required files for lasercutting. (well, that and a lingering lack of storage space ::) ).

Hi!

The tile in the 2nd pic is a sunken courtyard. At least that is how it is called:

I thought those boards were bigger, but I was surprised to find they are only about a metric foot square. Excellent.
