I was just sorting out some Heavy Gear miniatures to send a friend, rummaging around in my spares box, but a moment of m̶a̶d̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ inspiration overtook me and I made some insurgent Improvised Power Armor, inspired by the anime show called, Obsolete.
Having made them I needed a name. So I ran a thread on Facebook that generated the following list of names:
ATSW: All Terrain Support Weapon. Mutated to the nickname, "Ant"
CKT-M4A "Cricket"DRGW-21, "Dragoon Walker" perfect dragoons, riding those steeds
Heavy Weapons Tactical Mobility Units better known as "Stompin' Ostriches" or "Stompies"
Highly Improvised Mobility Battle Объект
Islagiatt: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time.
JICP: Jupiter Industrial Complex Pattern TKY-974 Storm Walkers though more commonly known to the troops as "Turkey Wankers" for how vulnerable they are to enemy fire. Designed by Herbert Bingle. Although being a well regarded engineer will never admit that the idea come around XMas.
Locust LCT-3A: Light Cavalry Transports
Marcher: MG units
Tripp(a)ers: Tactical Response Improvised Plantigrade Pod (Armor ) E R
With so many names to choose from I ended up making a poll:
Gunstriders finished first with 30 points; twice the votes of the next closest contender, the ATSW Ant with 15 points, which was three times more than HWTMU Ostrich/Stompies with 5 points. So Gunstriders will be the official name in the upcoming Bad Dog rules.
And to finish, today's post, I found this picture of the game banner for OHMU War Machine, which you can read a review of on Board Game Geek.
That's all folks. Catch you on the bounce!
