    Inspired by the days of monochrome monitors and detailed 2D damage schematics like those in old Mechcommander games.

    Here is my TMB-1 Tombstone fire support mech.

    I was playing battletech when the game was first sold…won a gencon battletech tournament back in the day(bones creak just a little bit)..was hooked at first fight until like most games pushed to hard on the clan tech and ruined a perfectly good board game..I played the first MechWarrior on pc ..and was in love when they took it to a multiplayer online game. Albeit on AOL dialup…that got worse and worse as more and more homes tapped into the internet…but didn’t stop me from playing late into the night when all the after work internet users had long gone to sleep(go clan Mad Cow)…quit that game when they went to a monthly sub to play. played mechwarroir rpg as well as solaris VII combat rules for battletech for that arena combat feel.. played other RPG games like as robotech macross and The king Rifts…was highly disappointed in mech assault when it hit the xbox..due to the dumbing down of the game mechanics to appeal to the masses …no hit locations…every weapon an autolock on… πŸ™ made me sad…but I played the hell out of it anyway) then into mech assault II that in many ways was ahead of its time for the galaxy wide conflict idea…great thought but just didn’t get the buy in…we went to an out of game sorce ..gamebattles to hold in game turneys…again dumbed down mech game but played the hell outa it…(sounds of trumpets) then there was Chromehounds…I got in late due to my refusal to buy a 360 for some time…that and I was invested pretty heavy into mech assault at the time..as well as piss poor reviews by the gaming propaganda market….Then I played it….became hooked quick…it was my home coming everything I wanted in a game and some thing I didn’t even know I wanted but did…hit locations weapon detail down to different size shells for calibers unlimited building potential…parts parts and more parts…and one thing I never thought of Was Squad based game…where you hung out with your squad and wrenched on builds tested them and gave feedback…as well as went out and merced in missions and when not in the mood ran free battle .. and then there was MAV the diamond in the rough with unlimited potential ….anyway the point of all this rambling…those tech drawings ..down to the green highlight mono tone colour bring me strait back to those first days of mech combat and everything enchanting about it…and the long road that has lead me here.. I would really like to have one done up of one of my builds at some point…and Zebra is on to something I would so buy a t-shirt if it had a tech drawing like that of one of my builds…well hoodie ..not really a t-shirt guy.
