    Shiftdel, I have an idea for an alternative skin for the Highlander:

    My battletech minis are mostly black (because I am not that great of a mini painter). But I got to looking at my Highlander one day and it struck me how much the head looks like it's wearing a helmet.

    With that in mind, I got out my paints and painted it up to look like an Aztec Jaguar Warrior, you know, the guys who wear the jaguar skins with the head for a helmet and look out the mouth?

    I also added a large club (made from a plastic fork) with blades on the sides to look like a maquahuitl. (Basically an obsidian-studded baseball bat).

    The round knobs on either side of the head became the jaguar skin's 'eyes.' All in all, it turned out pretty good.

    If I get the chance, I'll try to send you a picture.

    The Whammy's Battlemaster is done, I'm still waiting the feedback from the beta builder to correct any errors and release it.

    Currently I'm finishing the clean of MW4 Zeus. This is the first one of the original meshes that I'm working in, the others I made from scratch.

    About the vehicles, I'm still working on Bulldog, I will release it together with a tutorial on how to build models from scratch, using my usual technique (extruding).

    The good news is that a guy from another forum was able to find a way to extract them all, so you can expect something soon.

    My actual mini has a nice sword to go along with the PPC. I need to get some pics of that Highlander, too.

    I have several in different stages of completion, but I'D change my PC and the files are in another HD, which I still need to install in the new one, so they will take some time to finish, sorry...

    Great builds!!! I think my Vulture is my major success, I'd already see several of them built, and it is the champion of downloads too :D

    Hey Shiftdel, where can I find that bushwacker on the mechwarrior3 page that was shown in the examples? That one looked pretty good to build.

    Thanks..

    Not sure if I know which one you want, there are at least a couple of bushies there.

    I did one from the original MW3 model (not scratchbuild as my other mech models), but I still need to correct some small issues to release it.
