Animation 'of the Month'

'of the Month' is a segment where I basically spotlight 'Something Awesome'. This will happen on the last day of each month (seems more appropriate to have it at the end than the start).

So what is 'Something Awesome'? Well 'Something Awesome' can range from Artists, Music, Movies, Games and anything else that is worth mentioning! If you know 'Something Awesome' that should be mentioned on my Blog, then just share it in the comments!
'Something Awesome' this month is:

Kawaii Tanks (1:72 & 1:76 Scale)

For a while now I've been working on Tank Model Kits. The first of which is still a WIP; a 1:35 Scale KV-2. The second of which is a wide range of 1:72 & 1:76 Scale Tanks which range from anything I can get my hands on. The first 2 I've built are the Panzer IV Ausf. F2 and the Churchill MK VII.

I've been posting my progress on the ACES Forums in a kind of "Forum Blog".

Regardless; I'll repost the Progress Update for the first 2 here.

MechWarrior: Online - Timber Wolf, TBR-C (Any OmniVariant) Build

Another week; another build ay? This one's a good one though! Just as good as last week's Splat Wolf!! Well it feels pretty decent anyway. Come to think of it; all my Timber Wolves have CSRM6s... I dunno why too. They are simply fantastic!! Ok, maybe i just answered my own question.

Being more formal however; I'm finding that CSRM6s are really, really good. Hell SRMs in general; whether they are IS or Clan; they are good. Now the question of the day, are they OP? Incidentally, no. Admittedly they do very high Alpha Damage (12 per SRM6). But this damage is spread. If you have 4 lots of SRM6s that's 48 damage Alpha. Again spread and also you're limited to 270m max.

Regardless; here's my TBR-C build; but it can also be transferred to any other Variant.

Check it out right meow!

MechWarrior: Online - Stormcrow (Any OmniVariant) Build

Well the first of the Theory builds is today! Since I only bought the Timber Wolf; I've been trying to convince myself I should pick up the other Clan Mechs, such as the Stormcrow and the Warhawk. So far, with my love for CSRM6s, I reckon the Stormcrow might be a pretty good Mech for myself! It mixes what I love; high speed and huge Firepower!!

And boy; on paper, this Mech seems beastly!!

Check it out right meow!

MechWarrior: Online - Timber Wolf (Any OmniVariant) Build

It's back to that time of the week!! I tell you what; Clan Mechs are not remotely OP in any way shape and form. A skilled IS pilot can easily take down an equally skilled Clan pilot. However Clan Mechs do FEEL OP when they are piloted. Least it feels that way with me in my Timber Wolf!!

With Mechs; most Mechs have a choice of 2 out of the 3. By this I mean; Speed, Firepower and Armour. Most Mechs can only pick 2. You can have Firepower and Armour, Speed and Firepower. The Timber Wolf however gets to pick all 3! It has fantastic armour (for a Heavy); a fantastic Speed of 81kph (89.1kph with Speed Tweak) and depending on how you arm him; fantastic Firepower!!

For today, my current and personal favourite build; and I tell ya, she hurts hard!

Check it out right meow!

MechWarrior: Online - Clan Mech Info (Public Test Server 2)

I didn't spend as much time on the second Clan Public Test; but I did spend a few hours messing around. There are several new features as well as bug fixes. The first of which, you might've noticed above; the Polygon pattern now actually works. It's not like it was before, a non-textured mech. All the colours have been included as well!

Thanks to the extra CBills and GXP; I managed to test out a fully mastered Timber Wolf as well as the new module, Radar Deprivation. I also have come to the conclusion of exactly what build I shall be going for, and as usual, I'll make sure to post them up once the Smurfy MechLab has the Clan Mechs implemented!

MechWarrior: Online - Clan Mech Info (Public Test Server)

Oh my, oh my!! Where to begin!? I've been messing around on the Public Tester Server for Clan Mechs for a good portion of the day! Or nearly the whole day!! And my oh my was it a blast!! Clan Mechs are simply AWESOME ♪

Ok truth be told; all I bought was just the Timber Wolf; and really, the Timber Wolf is really all you need. IMHO from what I've played and seen, the Timber Wolf is most definitely Meta. It has Jump Jets and can (so far) transfer those Jump Jets to any and all other variants!! In addition; it's got a very broad set of Hardpoints so it can mount most weapons in any order. Expect a lot of Min Max.

Now I didn't get to play with any other Clan Mechs; but I was dropping with Shimmering Sword and company. Yes I do know Shimmering Sword and do, on occasions when I catch him; have a few drops. Anyway, we were dropping in and discussing other Clan Mechs. The Dire Wolf is a fantastic Pugging Mech once you Master or at least Speed Tweak the damned slow thing; 48kph to 54 kph is a huge difference! In addition; it is totally possible to mount 6 Clan Ultra AC5s or 6 Clan Ultra AC2s! Alternatively Shimmering mounted a nice Alpha of 60 damage build!!
