I’m trying to get back into some sort of rhythm with posting in this blog, aiming for every 3 weeks. However, this particular post excites me a lot and I very much want to share. Hence why I’m posting it a week early!
So, I wanted an excuse to get my Battletech models together in one place. I’d love to have them all painted and based the way I want, but between work, study, baby, and the rest if life, I have precious little time.
However, what I can do is show off a work in progress!
First up are the Federated Suns. 30 odd models from the kickstarter campaign and custom bases. I’m going for the Federated Suns Armoured Cavalry scheme.
Next are Clan Wolf Delta Galaxy. Again, some 40 odd models with custom bases.
Currently on my workbench are 20 Draconis Combine battlemechs, with my take on an atypical DCMS scheme with strong hints of Sword of Light colours.
Finally my pride and joy, the 303rd Battlemech Company, 87th Independent Regiment (Federated Suns).
The grand plan has me printing at least another 60 models, this will cover the Lyrans, the Capellans, and a mercenary company. I might take a slight detour along the way and print my favourite 3050 mechs as Solaris VII warriors, and I may want to print something for the Free Worlds League, and a company’s worth of Canopians, Taurians, and Aurigans… maybe some Word of Blake too… nothing crazy ambitious!
