    Isn't there an optional rule for tabletop that heatsinks mounted in a part of the mech that is underwater have increased effect?

    yep! i dont think its optional though. heat sinks in the leg have double effect when stand in level 1 water. I dont recall if you get full double heat sinking when you're fully submerged.

    edit: full submersion works! but only up to a max of 6 extra heat. :/

    Though in this case the Ryoken II doesn't have any heatsinks in the legs.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    I must admit, i havent been this giddy in a long time. My childhood dream of piles and piles of stompy bois is coming to fruition!

    Curious to get your thoughts on the dropship. Apparently some folks took issue with the construction.

    so i busted open the dropship... what issues are people having with the construction? The instructions are sparse, but functional. I think the biggest issue will be finding glue that holds all these metal bits to the plastic shell.

    edit: ah... yea... placing the two egg shells together is... not ideal. they dont sit flush at all. I'm gonna need some JB weld and a shitload of green stuff.

    now im going to have to build it out of spite instead of offloading it since its not great quality

    Apparently the metal-on-plastic was the issue. And also apparently there's a really bad seem?

    its not so much a seem as it is a canyon. Its really not great.

    if i had somewhere to return it and get my money back i would. Only disappointment so far.

    I wonder if there is anything i can do about the dropship. I'm assuming its too bad so sad since its a kickstarter. May just chuck it up on ebay. The surface is pitted and gouged in others. even my professional level spite isnt enough to make me finish it at this point.

    I would definitely complain. That thing was expensive. Also the fact that I don't think we ever got good pics in the Updates? Makes me wonder if they knew and deliberately cut the corner

    e: there's one "fully assembled and painted" model pic, which is almost definitely the model they used for the picture on the box, so probably a prototype anyway.

    I posted something in the kickstarter comments. Not sure where to go from there. Not sure if barking at quartermaster is the right path to go down since its not a logistics issue.

    That sort of construction is very common with small-scale garage-style kits, e.g. you have to put in a bunch of modeling work to clean it up. I've dabbled with similar constructions.

    Writ large, I'm not going to defend IWM for selling a make-work kit, but at the same time I'm 100% not surprised. I knew that going in, though, so I feel bad for you and anyone else that had the same reaction.

    Check your PMs.

    Did you get a shipping notification first or anything? HYPE.

    Also, we need some way to contain ourselves while we excitedly post things like what we got out of the random boxes. I guess there's not enough of us that just letting people do it is a problem?

    I...um...what?

    If I think I'm reading right what you wrote: Muthafucka, we gotta RIP AND TEAR those boxes ASAP. And then start updating our trade workbook. I know my tastes have changed a bit as the previews have come out, and I need to do an audit of what I want to keep and what I want to trade.

    Shit... Now that I will have enough mechs to actually fill a complete command structure, I'm going to have to divide out the Regiment into a properly formed unit.

    Taking applications from artists for a unit badge for OIALC and all smaller sub units that will follow.

    I'm thinking a tow truck driven by a walrus hauling away a dropship or something.

    If you want to use my likeness for a Hamburglar-type character, I'll sign off on that.

    edit- Oh man, now I have this dumb idea of an in-universe Merc Company who are so-so on the battlefield, but they have a dynamite PR team that has created a juggernaut of a merchandising empire for their brand. The vast, vast majority of the Merc's yearly profits comes from selling toys to kids and ticket sales to their theme park (naturally).
