Well, as it's a FASA imprint, has to one of the more classic BattleTech flavors of mechs, probably on Solaris as my guess. But then, it's been almost 11 years since I last read any of the BattleTech books, god it's been that long already? delay, I'm starting to feel old.

Don't recognize the title, so has to be a campaign manual or rule book of some sort.

Edit: Or not, Wiki says the FASA imprint has been back in play since 2011.

Edit 2: Hrm, BatteTech label books became available again in 2008? Hrm, time to visit Amazon i guess. Edit3: Well, I guess that didn't include a reprint or kindleization of virtually all of the older titles. Decision at Thunder Rift for $50 used? Yikes, shouldn't have donated the copy I had to the Ship's library after loaning it to a buddy and him returning it in rather poor condition.

It's an RPG supplement. "Unbound" is the name of this campaign.

The Mechwarrior RPG is glorious fun.

Hey Ishy, which edition are you playing of the RPG? Does the new edition still hold up?

Second. I haven't touched the new one yet. Maybe one day I'll find it at the FLGS and the siren call of the book I'm touching will strike me once again.

And I started painting again.

Nearly finished off a 12 mech regiment(?) from the Sword & Dragon starter book.

Now I just need a camera that does them justice.

The cost of your mechwarrior habit is not just the cost of the minis and paint but also the cost of documenting the habit for the Internet's attention.

I got new brushes and new paints.

<3

But I'm definitely experiencing a bit of a learning curve. The new brushes are synthetic and generally have stiffer bristles. Which leave a lot of brush marks. So I probably just need to water down the paint more to compensate.

Finished the Stalker last night. Well, mostly finished. Still need to do the base and seal it.

It's actually a freebirth dildo that was used to delay your mother. You've even got a head shaped like it came out of a vagina. You sure you're a clanner?

St. Ives FTW

Although those Freebirthers in Wolf's Dragons are pretty good too. :)

The Kell Hounds were an interesting group, as were the Grey Death Legion, too bad the Legion sided with Katrina Steiner over her Brother. ;)

And it really sucks you can't get new (English) copies of those books anymore. Good thing I have all of them except Decision at Thunder Rift. 8-)
