Thanatos Heavy Mech

Thanatos Heavy Mech Base Coat

The Thanatos got some color on it at last.

The Thanatos Heavy Mech is from Battletech which is a really enjoyable game franchise all around. I still find myself playing the classic battletech occasionally on MekWars which is an online free java program that allows internet play of classic battletech with randomly generated maps and campaign rules.

This mech is intended for the Frost Amazon army that my wife uses. She's quite formidable and I have to warn new players about her because many are so used to model wargaming being a male dominated hobby. They often realize too late that they need to take her seriously. I think she missed her calling as a blood thirsty warrior general. I may be a bit biased because I love her but the win/loss ratio doesn't lie. She's a force to be reckoned with.

Airbrushing Camo

I really like the camo scheme that I'm using for her army. It's got a nice winter camo feel to it while still being colorful enough to make the models really interesting to look at. A winter snow wargame battle mat is something in the works for sure. I'll be getting more done on that as I begin to wrap up my ruined city terrain in the near future. Stay tuned for more updates.
