There are several castings of the Atlas:
- the original single piece 1987 one
- the box-set single piece one (based on a re-press of the original sculpt, which means it is about 10% smaller but otherwise about the same)
- the much taller multi-part 1999 one
- the bulkier multi-part 2004 one
- a beginner-set casting, which is a 1-piece variant of the 2004 sculpt
Beginner Set casting

This mech is painted in a white camo (called "cyanide" from the MW4 video game), and has SLDF markings.
STATUS: Custom job, completed 10/2003.
This is a paint scheme that I copied from Jimmy Livingston. It's an exercise in washes and drybrushing... if you want to know how to do it, ask Jimmy because he does it better. ;)
STATUS: Custom job, completed, 9/2003.
This is MY Atlas. It's painted in the traditional 11th Lyran Regulars paint scheme, and includes a fearsome shark-tooth grin on the head. Plus, it's the older casting Atlas, so it fits in a miniatures case. ;)
STATUS: Completed, 2/2002. Not for sale.
The AS7-S2 model from RS:U sports an array of new Lyran technology, including a heavy gauss rifle. This mini was customized to reflect this equipment by J. Frazier of Jeanette's Mech Yard. The paint job is a custom Wolf's Dragoons scheme.
STATUS: Custom job, delivered March 2001.
This is a custom conversion of the newer casting Atlas. A hand-held gun has been added to give it more of an "unseen" type of appearance. The gun is made from a Highlander IIC, and the mech has a standard FedCom paint scheme.
STATUS: Custom job, delivered February 2001.
The paint scheme is based on the blue / yellow scheme seen in the PC game Mechcommander. The markings are FedCom as in the game, and an enemy Savannah Master hovercraft is seen on the base.
STATUS: This mech was a custom job, delivered April 2000.
This Atlas is painted with a ghostly blue flaming skull on an otherwise black mech. There are FedCom markings on the arms and legs.
STATUS: This mech was sold, June 2000.
This mech is part of an assault lance with an Goliath, Daishi, and Battlemaster. The checker logo is a custom design, and the lance is finished with an airbrushed arctic camo. Weighing in at nearly 400 tons, this is about the nastiest lance you can put together.
STATUS: Custom Job, Delivered 10/1999.
This mini represents the original casting of the 100-ton Atlas. This rendition of the mech is painted in a 3-color camoflauge scheme with a shark mouth. At home in the woods or on the open battlefield, this mech strikes terror into enemy mechwarriors from both the Inner Sphere and the Clans.
STATUS: Custom job, delivered January 1999.
