2nd Covington Dragoons (Battletech)

The Heavy, Medium and Recon Lance for the 2nd Covington Dragoons.

To go along with last weeks post I now have my custom unit for the Battletech universe, the 2nd Covington Dragoons. I play Mechwarrior Online somewhat frequently and decided to paint up some old Battletech miniatures I had sitting around, in the camo scheme I use in the game.

I have enjoyed the few games of Battletech Alpha Strike that I've played as it speeds up the game significantly but still keeps the feel of the original Battletech game. Unfortunately, gaming in my area has been on a sharp decline lately, and it is hard to get a game of anything in.... :(

The Medium Lance.

A Centurion, Crab, Blackjack and Bushwacker.

The weird looking Crab battlemech.

I love this miniature, it captures the quirkiness of Battletech.

I pinch you!
A Blackjack medium mech.

I replaced the oversized cannon barrels with some some smaller ones.

With the unit marking and Federated Suns decals.

A Centurion medium mech.
Rather large cannon barrel.

The Centurion's head looks like a Sleestak from Land of the Lost.

The Bushwacker.

  1. I like this scheme. How may I ask did you paint them?

    1. Thanks! I first primed them black and the painted on the green color which is Vallejo Russian Uniform. I then free handed the brown and tan squares on the mechs. It is a similar pattern to my MWO one I use in the game.

      In the future I may go with more of a contrast between the colors.
