Fantastic. Seeing it on that hex like that reminds me of playing Mechwarrior to death as a kid. He would totally overheat with that gear, but with the interchangeable parts it looks well worth it. Couple SRMs...some Machine guns...Oooo just like Christmas.
Hope the rules sets for these stand up to the quality of the figures. ;D
The medium mecha is complete (except weapons) and I've finished the basics of the heavy mecha.
Basically I rescaled the medium version, and then tweaked the details. I kept the size of bolts, screws, and other details the same because I figured there should be a standard size. I don't know if this same technique will work with the light mecha, but I'll try that next.
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
Each Mech has 4 "hardpoints" for mounting equipment. Hardpoints come in three ratings - Light, Medium, Heavy. Mechs come in three classes - Light, Medium, Heavy. A Mech can only have hardpoints equal to or lower than their class rating... depending on how you want to build it. So, yes weapons will come in different sizes...
Sounds like a good system. I was thinking of maybe having twice the number of light weapons on a hardpoint since it is a heavy mech. At least that was how I used to build them in various PC games. Not very strategic, but fun.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
