Battletech: 2nd Line Clan Mechs

Poormans Clan mechs

Late last week we had some of the Covid-19 restrictions eased, Earlier in the week somebody suggested that the maximum number of people possible gather for a game of Battletech.  Having not thrown a dice in anger in some 50+ days we jumped at it.

On the Friday I was working out what mechs to take…..   I started working on some idea’s then thought, screw it I have these shinny clanners here why not use them.  A good reference for the Clan mech’s can be found here. I Looked at the BV we could use set my mind on the Warhammer IIc.  Once I got painting on friday afternoon, that turned in to the Jenner IIc and Shadowhawk IIc also getting finished, and I had also started the Marauder IIc and Rifleman IIc.  I ended up playing with the Jenner IIc and the Shadowhawk IIc, I should have taken the Warhammer IIc.

The biggest problem is that the Matt Varnish has gone all glossy, if it doesn’t matt down I will have to find some matting agent and do another coat.

I also did all the windscreens using GW Contrast paints, I have been trying to find a use for them, though this might be one.. I am wrong. while it looks ok, the same thing can be done with normal paints and much faster. I possibly didn’t take the green light enough either to give them more contrast.  but hey I got them done pretty quick.

This is my 2nd Fav of all these mech’s it has the classic Warhammer look, just bigger.

Most people should know this is actually the Marauder IIc 2, but I have modified the top gun.  I do the sharp angled Marauder IIc that looks like a wedge around here somewhere, one day I will paint it up as well.

This is my Fav mech, not sure what it is I like it just looks better.

And this is a terrible looking mech, but hey it is a SRM carrier how pretty does it have to be.

That is it for the mechs for a moment. Before anybody ask’s yes I suffer from the “oooh Shinny” syndrome as a gamer as well.

I still have that Sage Point I am painting.  I have done the horses, where I did them with contrast paints as well.
