With Community Warfare (hopefully being) implemented soonTM; it's time to start practicing and going back to the old Inner Sphere Mechs. And they are in truly need of an overhaul. Clan Mechs are powerful; but far from OP. However IS pilots will need to change their tactics (which many are loath to do so).
In truth; I have more fun piloting my Clan Mechs more than any other Mech. I mean after all; all my favourite Mechs are Clan Mechs and late era Mechs - Fafnir anyone?
Check it out right meow!

'Build Dump' is a segment where I basically dump a huge amount of Mech Builds in one go. These builds can range anywhere between "Tried and Tested" to a complete new "Theory Build".
Unfortunately, due to how many Mech Builds are being dumped, I won't be putting any description of how that build should be played (I'll leave that for the individual Mech Build posts).
Without further ado, let's dump the builds!

I am absolutely obsessed with the Hellbringer (Loki) - you know what? I'm just gonna use Loki as it's absolutely faster to type than Hellbringer. I have been looking forward to the inclusion of the Loki since the announcement of Clan Mechs. Hell Cattra and LtRics have probably been on the receiving end of my Loki obsessed rants!!
So how obsessed am I exactly? Obsessed enough to actually concoct several builds for a Mech that is 3 Months way from release. And thanks to a little but of intelligence and maths (or just insanity, probably the latter) I basically worked out how much Tonnage I can play with.

So just yesterday Russ Bullock announced all the super duper FREE stuff we can get and what the next Clan Wave 2 will comprise of!! So first up, we have the Mist Lynx (Koshi), Ice Ferret (Fenris), Hellbringer (Loki) and Gargoyle (Man O'War).
I'll ignore the beloved Mad Dog (Vulture) because that's an awesome FREEBIE but you have to buy both the Masakari and Man-O-War package to get that for free.
Out of these 4 Mechs, the only 2 I reckon that are actually pretty awesome and worth it are the Hellbringer and Gargoyle. Even then the Hellbringer takes the cake as being the easy best and most anticipated out of those 4. Ok this is super biased as I absolutely LOVE the Loki!
And for this post! It's all about the Hellbringer (Loki)! Note that I'll be using each name interchangeably!
So guess what? Your one and only Varro Thaddeus (me), is heading over to another Con!! In this case it's known as "Animaga". Which is held in Melbourne, Australia at the Royal Exhibition Building at 27-28th September.
What is Animaga exactly? Well it's literally an Anime-Con hosted by a team of Anime lovers!!
So why am I so stoked for this? Well simply put MECHA AREA!!

So... I finally found a new ballistic and totally super fun build! From the image above, you can probably guess what kind of build it has! I tell you what; no wonder people love the 6x CUAC5 Dire Wolf!! The amount of DAKKA you throw out is absolutely amazing!!
Well, it's half that for the Timber Wolf... BUT at least I get some fantastic speed!!
Check it out right meow!

I have seriously gotta stop piloting the Timber Wolf... But it is truly a fantastic Heavy Mech; probably even the best Heavy Mech in the game! It's got a really nice hitbox; great versatility and a good mixture of Armour, Speed and Firepower!
It can practically do almost anything you want it to!!
Oh well; I'll keep messing around with as many Timber Wolf builds as I can till PGI give me my Mad Dog (Vulture) and Hellbringer (Loki).
Check it out right meow!

Like i said once before; whenever I begin building an army; I always like to prepare and build towards an army list. Mind you I have a Contemptor Dreadnought and 10 Wolf Guard Terminators lying around waiting to be build. But that's because I just love building anything that looks awesome.
Regardless; this is what I plan to collect and to use in a 2000 points army.
