Month: November 2015

Finished Battletech Assault Lance

I’ve finished up painting the Assault lance for my game on Thursday. I will probably go and strip these guys down eventually to do a different paint job, but for now they are good enough for play.

I’ve managed to get some paint on the assault lance for my Battletech game on Thursday. Still need to do some lighter highlights as they turned out a little darker than I had hoped and I’m going to attempt to freehand some unit markings.

So I made a lot of progress on assembly over the last few days. I’ve built over half of the models, enough to make about 1500 points without any upgrades. The final goal is to have 2000 points built and painted by November 30th.

Last Thursday I got to play Battletech for the first time in more than a decade. Battletech was my first love in miniatures war gaming and something I was obsessed with from 7th grade until I graduated from high school. After high school I assumed that adults don’t play games and hauled all my books and models to Goodwill to hopefully go to a deserving geeks collection. I of course regret getting rid of everything and have slowly picked some stuff up second hand over the years to keep up but haven’t really had the right group to play regularly. Last week I got invited to play again and so many memories came flooding back as I was hooked again.

The group plays fortnightly, and to prepare for the next game, I will be painting up an Assault Lance for the FRR Tyr Regiment, Second Battalion. I built and prepped the models tonight and will finish basing them and prime them tomorrow in preparation for painting in the next few days.
