Finally Some Hobby Progress

So today I finally got a chance to get some hobby time in.  18 Battlemechs destined for my 21st Striker Regiment of the Eridani Light Horse got their basecoat green today.  These included the six Robotech minis I have assembled so far, a pair each of Cicadas, Assassins, Commandos, and Panthers, and then a Dervish, a Javelin, an Urbanmech, and lastly an unseen Locust.

Also over the past week, a quartet of aerospace fighters arrived to also help move the regiment towards completion.  These included a Lucifer, a Stuka, a Cheetah, and a Seydlitz.
I also got assembled but not pictured a pair of Awesomes, a Dragon, a Thorn, and a Flashman.  These five plus the six Robotech minis I need to get assembled still get me within visible distance of completing the 21st Striker Regiment.  I still need 3 more battlemechs and 6 aerospace fighters.  There is still a lot of painting and basing to do though.  To finish off the mech portion, I want to track down another unseen Griffin and then a pair of unseen Wasps or Stingers.  As to the aerospace fighters, I'm just looking for good deals and haven't been too picky on the types.

So there is where things stand at the moment.  I've been lucky to get some good trades off a Battletech Facebook group as well as some good deals on eBay throughout the holidays.  I'm hoping to have all the models to complete the regiment by the end of January and am going to try and have everything painted and based by no later than sometime in March.  We'll see how things go on that front.  Also I used some Christmas money to order my Bolt Action rule books this weekend.  Come March I'll get some extra income and I'll be making the plunge into the British Airborne Regiment.

That's all for now and thanks for reading.


  1. Wait, you're doing Brits as well? So is it all of us against Screech?! LOL

    1. Isn't that the natural order of things? Actually what drew me to the Brit Airborne is I can't wait to have all those snazzy red berets running around. The Brits seem to have some interesting national rules to choose from as well. Plus I can expand at some point in the future and add some awesome Ghurkas.

    2. I have a Quar with a kilt and Bagpipes, so the Brits were the obvious choice!
