Warhammer WHM-6R
I hereby present a member of the Jefferson's Marauders customized Warhammer lance for the Micro-scale contest.
About this creation
Sorry, this particular vehicle has seen a bit of action and hasn't been repaired yet.

I know I don't use LDD very often, mainly because it's a real pain in the behind to use with all its finicky little problems.



Anyway, this is indeed a customized WHM-6R: the useless little small lasers have been swapped out for some extra torso armour.
Apart from that it's perfectly normal, but it's quite an improvement in the area of survivability.

Let's have a show of hands: who here has ever used a 2025 era Warhammer's small lasers with any hope of doing real damage?
Yeah, I thought not. The machineguns are at least useful, being capable of chewing into infantry and not raising your heat levels: whammies run hot, so the less extra warming the better.



I know this is not a perfectly exact replica: my belief has always been that the 'hammer's cockpit is in that hollow in the torso, therefore that's where I put it in the model. There are limitations of the scale at which I built it, so I can't include some features.
Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to make a full minifig scale Warhammer, but I haven't the parts or the skill.

This model is slightly too wide and the legs look a bit odd, but details, details..

Also, the right arm is shot off at the elbow and charred everywhere else because LDD was being a finicky little ***** and not letting me fit the shoulder in so I improvised.



Alpha strike!


Believe me, if you were going up against me in a Marauder like my little bro's do, you'd be sweating right now. Five tons heavier and they STILL can't beat me.
At least they're not pulling cavalry charges in Archers anymore..

From left to right, top to bottom: smoke & flame, fire and steel: Holly brand SRM 6-pack missile pod, a nasty thing when you've had twin PPCs punching ruddy great holes in your armour.

Red beams: two medium lasers, Martel, I believe. Secondary hole-punchers.

Orange/yeller flashes: Sperry-Browning machineguns, x2, an infantryman's best friend or worst enemy, depending on what side he's on.

Blue spark: Inner Sphere Successor States standard PPC, Donal manufacture: the primary weapon of a Warhammer, mounted one to an arm. Powerful weapons with long range, but heavy and hot running. Lethal, though: as powerful as an AC/10 and unlimited ammo supplies. Autocannon get heavy fast, you know: the weapon is light, but the ammo isn't. PPCs are excellent weapons; even the vaunted Marauder has only got two, and that dinky little AC/5 isn't going to do you any favors up close: a Warhammer has its medlasers and machineguns, not to mention the SRM, but all a Marauder has at 30 to 90 metres is its two medium lasers.

You'd better keep me at arm's length if you want to live to see your next birthday, mr. I've-got-half-a-ton-more-armour-than-you-nya-nya.



Here's a reference piccie from the old Battletech box.
I've got Citytech, you know.
It's basically Battletech, 2nd Edition, before the lawsuit which means I still get Archers, Marauders, Warhammers, Ostsols, Shadowhawks, etc.

Before you call me outdated, I've also got the Battletech Compendium and TRO: 3058.
I'm still adjusting to the rules and besides, 3025 is the best period of time.

No clan omni's running around to ruin your day, just good ol' blood and guts Succession War fighting.

Here's another 'hammer pic, because while the other one is atmospheric it's not a proper comparison image: http://sarna.net/wiki/images/7/7c/3025_warhammer.jpg

It's the image I was using for the reference, by the way.

Quoting Mithryl Dlarix I think this is actually from Robotech/Macross. Anyhoo, awesome job--I could tell right away what it was, though the missing arm threw me off at first. Can you show it with both arms?
I think it's called the Tomahawk in Macross, but it's also one of the early battlemechs; same sort of thing as the Locust, Archer, Wasp, Stinger, Wolverine, Phoenix Hawk, Battlemaster, Shadowhawk, etc. Borrowed artwork, you could say. As for the arms, it depends: you see, LDD was being annoying and refusing to let me mirror the shoulder joint on the right side and have the slope brick on as well. I'll have a go, though.

Not sure about something with two searchlights, I don't think that was ever really a functional part in battletech anyway, just a leftover from the anime artwork, it's been a long time since I played. You may be thinking of the Project Phoenix reseen version of the Warhammer IIC http://www.heavygauss.com/ASSAULT/warhammerIIC4.jpg My first stop for looking for variants is usually http://sarna.net Mithryl: it's actually from both. It's a long sad tale of licenses and lawsuits

Quoting affliction . Feet are a bit off, but that's forgivable because of the scale. Yay battlemechs!
Thanks. Any suggestions for improving this? I know there's a variant or something that has two searchlights, but I'm not sure if it was just an art error.

Quoting "Karo Kage" or Matthew Nguyen I don't think I need to say I'm the first to review, but anyway, this is quite good, despite LDD form. The legs in the first pic didn't look great, but seeing them bend made them look much more better. Great Micro Scale!
Thanks! Although the knees don't actually bend.. I had to cheat with a headlight brick.
