Werefox PetainWelcome back! It has been a little over two weeks since our last update. I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a good New Year celebration.
I have decided to give the response to Pink's blog posts on BattleTech a rest. We've both made our points.
Here is what has developed:
- Paul Skowronek – Our final writeup editor has been hard at work. I have paid him up to date and should be sending another $21 this Friday. We are making good progress… he is now working on the Federated Commonwealth vehicles.
- The HMV and HMAero PDF files are languishing… I am going to work on them this week and hopefully have them all done by this next Friday.
- Stephen Huda has completed two Federated Commonwealth vehicles – the Werefox Petain and the Werefox AAV (anti-aircraft vehicle). See the header image above for the Petain – below is the AAV. Excellent work, as always.
- Eric Ou has completed the Draconis Combine’s Tomahawk and Revenant. See below.
- Okay, and now for the part everyone has been waiting for....
Bill and I have been working independently for about the past two months. Friday night I got a chance to set with him for several hours and we worked on the TRO prototype.
I think we made significant progress – though some pages (such as the credits) are not there and will not be until the final version, the whole thing is beginning to shape up. We now have the entire Draconis Combine ‘Mech section in place.
In fact, we are advanced far enough that I am going to solicit reader feedback on this one.
Don’t hesitate to point stuff out – misspelled words, data out of place, canon or continuity issues, art, etc. I need to have as many eyeballs as possible looking at the layout, the text and the art. I don’t care if it is a matter of taste or you spot a hyphen where there should not be one – I will take it on board.
One thing – I have already spotted the model numbering errors in the Isometrus writeup between the Marik version and the Lyran version, so no need to point it out.
A word of caution: I have linked to this and downloaded the PDF using ‘save page as’. About half the time, I get a useful PDF. The rest of the time, what is downloaded is wonky and Acrobat will not open it.
[However, this is while using Google Chrome as a browser. A working version is easy to download if you use the latest Firefox.]
If you still cannot download a working version from the site link above no matter how you try, email me and I will shoot you a copy – it is lo-rez and only about 6.5 megs.
Thank you and welcome to the ranks of the proofreaders… and no, I’m not paying anyone (except Paul). I cannot afford to. But if you find some serious errors, I will add your name to the credits page. Howzat?
Thanks for stopping by.
