Just to expand on that, for Ruger's benefit: Armour allocation for War Dog per RS: 3055/58: 9 - 36/10 - 23/9 - 24 AND 16 - 28. The allocation in the book was incorrect, though having 215 armour pts, the CT was 40/12, the side T were 23/10, and the RA was 25. All of which is impossible and which took it over 215.

TRO's do have mistakes, Look at the Grand Titan. Another Armor Mistake....

You must have a different version than mine then (mine is the 3rd Printing)...mine had H: 9. CT: 34/10, R/LT: 22/10, R/LA: 24/15, R/LL: 25..., which adds up to 206...add 9 points to the LA (making it 24, just like the other) and you have the 215 pts it's supposed to have...

Generally, I agree here. I gotta say, though, that I just like the look of the Shadowhawk IIc and the P-hawk IIc.

Don't know why the Clans would have bothered keeping the Jenner. When I read that page of the TRO, I remember half-expecting to turn the page and find Winnabago IIc

I actually like the 2c's (especially the Marauer) but over all I felt the designs were ok and the artwork and designs (Bandersnatch is by far the UGLIEST mech ever designed) were Ok. I actually prefer the TRO 3058 for artwork and some of the designs, (the Lineholder is a personal favorite of mine, same with the Raijin). But that is mostly the artists doing on designs and Gary Loose was and is in my opinion the best artist they had (He did most of the 3025/3026 and 3058 TRO's if I remember correctely).

I agree, the Bandersnatch is the ugliest mech, it's one redeeming feature is that it can customized in the factory..... Save us the work of doing it....

I remain with my POV that the MODEL is really quite good (especially considering the admittedly cruddy art).

Ruger - the armour that I gave in one of the above posts IS the current RECORD SHEET (hence official) armour allocation.

Yeah, I agree, Gangrene. Most reputable companies that publish erroneous material put the errata on the web for free. It's ridiculous to expect your customers (your very loyal customers) to pay another $20 for the fixes....yet another reason that (IMHO) FASA deserved to go under. HORRIBLE customer service.

the fate of the inferior, in any universe.
