    as i am a somewhat avid mechwarrior fan (also japanese mecha) i always had the idea to convert a sentinel squad into a pack of recon mechs (fromt he games if anyone has got it) this is mainly the inclusion of missile packs (represented as either hk mislsile or vdr missile launcher {15pts}) i just wanted to know if anyone knows how to make it, because i have a few sketches but i cant get them up online. i was thinkin of makin the inside structural frame of balsa wood and then layeing plasticard ontop to make the armored effect, and would make it more solid, any suggestions?

    you could use som Battletech minis, considering Battletech IS Mechwarrior.
    It's not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It's pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

    Could use them, they have the right look...

    By the way... anyone here have any good ideas on how I can make sentinels "swamp proof".
    I have invented my own IG regiment based on a swampy world and I need some idea on haow to make the vehicles able to traverse the swamp... without having to change any rules.
    I was thinking of making all vehicles like hovercraft, but then the problem with the sentinel struck me... how an I supposed to make them swamp conversions of them.

    Maybe put leaves on the top, and like small blades on the bottom. So it cuts down a path? Or, you could put two IGsmen with chainsaws in front of it, so THEY&#39;RE cutting a path. I know, I&#39;m crazy.
    Henceforth no man shall set foot upon the world, and all around shall be set sentinals to ward away unwary spacecraft. We must accept that this place is lost to us forever, and is now the eternal habitation of abomination.

    I have been thinking of making chimera and leman russ hover crafts, but the idea of making a sentinel hover is a bit crazy if you ask me.
    I have been thinking of stilts or something, but the idea doesn&#39;t sound good as the fluff I am preparing indicates that the planet is almost one giant bottomless tundra swamp.
    I have been thinking of almost some sort of rubber boats on it&#39;s feet, but I&#39;m ot sure how good it&#39;ll look.

    well, if you made the base hovercraft (i.e. the rubber thingy) then have the sentinel torso on top as a pivoting weapon platform, prolly with heavy flamer...
