One of the nice things about the new plastic minis is that they are easy to customize, yet keep all the same detail as the originals. At GenCon 2015, I placed this mini next to a metal one and people could not reliably tell the difference. This one is modified to have open missile doors, and to raise the arms to firing position. This mini is painted in the scheme of The Stealths from the First Succession War.
STATUS: Completed 07/2015.
I used this mech to help develop the paint scheme for the Umayyad 1st Corps (which is now a canon scheme featured on CamoSpecs Online). The official scheme reads:
The Mechwarriors of the 1st Corps paint their machines in a bright yellow wit h teal trim. Flowing patterns of purples or blues are often added.
The scheme was inspired by the dress of the Spanish Moors from the 13th century AD.
STATUS: Custom job, delivered 12/2004.
This Dervish has been painted in a Skye Rangers scheme.
STATUS: Custom job, delivered 10/2002.
Dervish is a popular medium mech dating back to 3025 times. This one has a cool white and red scheme derived from the Soviet arctic aircraft that helped stop the Nazi advance in WW II.
STATUS: Sold, July 2000.
