WIP's 2......

I suppose I should stop building and start painting, but this train has no brakes. I've been making minis of models I want but have no space for. 

Agni from Armored Core Verdict Day. He's heavily armed because... well, he's an Armored Core. Yes, that's a MWO Dragon under there. With Cyclops legs. 

He doesn't seem to know the meaning of the word "restraint" either. 

Battletech has no sniper rifles and is the only tabletop mecha game on the market (Yes, I know about Infinity) so I'm going to gin up some home-brew rules. 

Mechs don't have weapon storage racks either. I suppose you just buy the weapon and go from there. 


Kagutsuchi Otsu (Sniper) from Frame Arms. What's that off-screen?

His fucking enormous cannon. You know, for one-shotting... er.... battleships. He carries a lot of armmo for it in that drum. Not accurate, I know, but I was in the zone, and it looks great. 

Under it all, he's an MWO Thunderbolt. I should do something decorative to the back plate, probably. 

Kagutsuchi Otsu (Fencer), the other specialist type. The actual plamo kit has an even larger hand weapon. The best approximation I could find was the big ugly claw gatling I had extras of from my FW AdMech robots. I like it because he doesn't have to drop it to draw a rifle like the original does, he just levels it and fires off a burst. His armor skirts are heavier because he's a hand-to-hand fighter. 

I should probably cover up the missile holes so his gatling ammo doesn't fall out. Those missile boxes are from a MWO Catapult. 

Till next time....
