Mecha Monday: Drachen WHISPER

The Drachen WHISPER is a product of the Draconian War. The combined forces of both rebel Draconians and outlaw pirates in the opening weeks of the war were tough and driven fighters. They had taken over a dozen city-states, and then moved on one of the larger population centers. They completely overran the city-state of New Berlin in a matter of hours. Out of the chaos, a group of four WHISPERs were able to fight a prolonged three-hour engagement with the pirates, buying enough time for more civilians to evacuate the city's confined streets. These WHISPERs were the first sighting of the Drachen. Two of the pilots were killed in action, with the remaining pair escaping to the wastelands leading to the southern marshes. Once there, they made contact with troops from Alsafi. Their pilots and maintenance crew revealed they had the entire production program and design specifications for the Drachen in hand. They promised to give Alsafi's governor, Dumas, and troops the specifications for mass fabrication, on one c

Mecha Monday : Orko One's Hell Hound

From Owen B:Snow visited Michigan again. While going through my stuff the last couple weeks I found this old project. It's Orko_one's hell Hound in 10mm but it's my preferred size for Mecha (5-9cm tall). One of the weapons had an air bubble from the caster so I swapped it out with a barrel from Old Crow. Then a copy I sold the arm broke so after I swapped my good arm and he the damaged one I swapped out the twin barrel (again Old Crow). Another missing piece meant the missile shoulder went to someone else. So a near perfect fit was the rotatory cannon from Critical Mass tank (that I still haven't painted). The scheme was inspired by a near black jaguar where the color just was coming through. After getting the spots done it looked like a Mecha giraffe so I stripped it about 4 years ago. Twice. you can still see patterns in some of the pieces. So it's getting a new Cloud Grey base coat as I get into painting once again.

Mecha Monday : Gepard Dropship

The Gepard is aalternative to the durable and deadly Leopard-class aerodyne dropship. Here reproduced in 1/285 (mech) scale and compatible with Battletech or any other 6mm science fiction wargame, this dropship requires minimal assembly and features an FDM printed body and separate turret printed in resin. This is version 2, which has been scaled up overall from 8.6″ first version, features taller doors (1.8″ tall, as opposed to the previous version’s 1.45″ doors), includes removable (magnetic) landing gear and separated wingtips and thrusters for better printing. An Atlas woould still bump it’s head on the way out the doors, but this is a scrappy merc’s dropship, not some luxurious Fortress!Gepard Dropship
