As I continue with my Battletech cataloging, I have come to some Clan forces. Primarily, in the 90's, I chose Jade Falcon. Why? Well, everyone else was pretty enamored of Wolf because of the Lethal Heritage trilogy. As time went on, with the Way of the Clans initial trilogy, and ongoing Battletech Universe "history", the Jade Falcons turned out to be a good choice. They get stuck in very frequently, are a semi-bad guy clan, but are not pushovers.
Later I added to the Jade Falcons, but also developed a hankering for Smoke Jaguar, probably due in part to the Exodus Road series. Also, if the jade Falcons are semi-bad guys, the Smoke Jaguars are actual bad guys in many ways. And its fun to have two different Clan factions.
First up are my "newer" Jade Falcons... these are supposed to be Epsilon Galaxy, though, my green is not light enough and probably too bright.
What you see is is slightly over a mixed Trinary, with a Star of Elementals leading the way for (metal) Masakari, Kraken, Turkina, Madcat-Pryde, Thor, 2x Piranhas, (plastic) Daishi, Blackhawk, Uller, and Madcat. Now, the Piranhas are pretty specifically not Jade Falcon mechs, but I like their design, and there is always room for them being captured.
Next are my Smoke Jaguars, painted as Alpha Galaxy, which is a flat grey with jaguar spots on the upper portions of the mechs.
I decided to go ahead and include my older Clan stuff in this post, just because.... though the ones I painted all those years ago are not as nice as the later mechs. This includes a number of mechs I bought from a guy in the club I gamed with in Florida, which I never got around to repainting.
I think at some point I might catalog what I have not painted yet... but that might be too embarrassing.
