Refit corner

Posted by wars128 on May 12, 2008

While TRO 3050U updated many designs to total warfare specs, many of the original designs got left out. So, ive come up with the Icon Series, the mechs that you really only associate with one House. I’ve upgraded these classic mechs with a TW bent, though I tried to keep them close to their original state, no XL engines, similar firepower, just better, like using MMLs and LACs. You’ll also see slightly older weapons, like MRMs and RACs show up every once and awhile as well. Exact descriptions coming soon.

Chicago, what a place!

Posted by wars128 on May 8, 2008

Chicago has been great. I’ve been to two museums so far, one that had an old WWII era captured german submarine. It was huge!!!! It wieghed 740 tons, which makes those 300 ton limit for combat subs look tiny! I am used to seeing WWII era subs with deck guns, and was suprised to find this one armed with AA guns. Wouldn’t it be neat to have anti-submarine warefare in Battletech? Though that would be fairly complicated, it might be fun. Its fun being in such a big city, not that im from a small town or anything, but im not used to being surounded by skyscrapers nearly wherever I go. This mornign I saw a street sign that said “15 ton wieght limit”. My frist thought upon seeing it was “That sucks, you couldn’t have a mech on it.” Really, im not kidding. I guess I really am a MechHead.

Busy Busy

Posted by wars128 on May 5, 2008

You think with school having ended a little less than week ago for me that I woulnd’t be busy, but infact its the opposite. In-between unpacking, a cousins graduating from college, and an unexpected trip to chicago i’ve been swamped. Thats actually where I am right now, chicago, courtesy of a 10 hour overnight bus ride. This week look to see a new podcast episode put out, and another one soon after.
