Tomorrow's War meets Battletech: Clan Wolf Beta Galaxy "Kit Fox" A

Another update on Clan forces. This Mech is more or less a test piece. I tried the paint scheme for Beta Galaxy with the paints I had at home (a mix of GW, Vallejo and oil paints) only to see how it would turn out. It's not the best miniature - a re-painted Mechwarrior miniature - but I am pleased with the choice of colours. Looks as expected (at least to me).
30 tons of Clan OmniMech power

The Kit Fox is a light Clan OmniMech with long-range combat as a primary focus, earning it the Inner Sphere codename of Uller, after the Norse god of archery.

Alternative configuration "A" as shown on the miniature carries a Gauss Rifle. A pretty nasty surprise given the weight of the Kit Fox.

The other arm carries two Medium Lasers. Those are powerful enough to deal damage in significant amounts.

Back detail of the torso. I decided to put the Mech on top of some rocks to increase its height. For my opinion it was too tiny compared to other light Mechs i have in my collection.

The Kit Fox A in comparison to the Elemental point I had finished recently.

Very sharp! there aren't very many "official" paint schemes i like, but this one has retained a military i like it. you have done an exceptional job with the paint and base work which makes it that much better. nice work, my friend!

Grandios bemalt! Verfolge deinen Blog erst seit ein paar Tagen, nachdem ich nach Inspirationen für meine neuen Battlemechs gesucht hatte. Stammst du vielleicht auch aus der alten Battletech-Szene rund um Nürnberg? Ich war vor 15-20 Jahren ein paar mal auf einer Nürnberger B-Tech Con und hab lange organisiert (Mechforce, Nice Dice) gezockt. Wohne nun zufällig auch in Zirndorf bei Nürnberg. Vielleicht ergibt sich ja mal die Chance zum Erfahrungsaustausch? Ich glaube, dass ich in Sachen Bemalen noch viel von dir lernen kann.

Bin zwar nicht soweit weg von Nbg. aber ich komme nicht aus der Spielerszene von dort. Von mir ist es bis Nbg ca. 1 Stunde zu fahren.

Just getting into Force on Force and have found your blog VERY inspirational. Keep up the great work!

Oh dear... the changes made to allow this to torso twist were not kind to the poor old Kit Fox.

However: yup, that's Beta Galaxy alright. I'd recognise it anywhere.
