As I mentioned before, these two old Battletech Mechs have been in the Loft Full Of Lead for a ridiculously long time, they were actually still in their blister packs. I could not believe what they go for on eBay, but I have always liked the Madcat in particular so it was going to get painted for Horizon Wars no matter what.
As the profile rules in Horizon Wars are entirely up to players, I can run either of these Mechs as Medium or Heavy.
I have had these two old Battletech Mechs in the Loft Full Of Lead for many many years. The arrival of Horizon Wars has encouraged me to put them together ready for a game or two.
The Madcat is my favourite Mech design, I don’t know what is that I like about it over other Mechs, it just appeals to me.
The Daishi is another clean design with plenty of weapons. Being nice small models, they will not take long to paint.
Finally got some nice warm weather this weekend so I have been able to undercoat some more models including these Mechs.
I am now ready for my first bash at Horizon Wars. My next step is to work out an army list with the available models. I guess if I get desperate, I can always get some reinforcements from the Epic 40K Imperial Guard or Space Marines I have in the Loft Full Of Lead, but it does look like the model count for Horizon Wars is quite small.

Here are two more models for the 6mm Horizon Wars army, I really can’t remember where they came from. They may have been Ground Zero Games, but not sure.
There are some more flying units coming along, but ground support aircraft rather than fighter bombers.
Super Heavy tanks are still pretty small at 6mm scale, this squadron consists of three tanks, two Mammont Super-heavy Tanks and one Mammont with Particle Cannon.
Next in the 6mm arsenal is a unit of Vombat hybrid tank/APC’s. I have no idea if they can fulfill a role in Horizon Wars yet, but I like the idea of a tank able to carry an infantry squad.
6mm infantry don’t take to much paint. Just trying to pick out the weapon is hard enough. When I based these year ago, I used modellers White Pumice to fill around the tiny bases which is messy stuff but looks okay.
These infantry were sculpted by Germy and sold by Brigade Games.
I have had this model for a couple of decades I think, I really can’t remember where it came from, who makes it or why I bought it. As a first Mech for Horizon Wars it will certainly do. I may have to add a shoulder mounted weapon of some description.
I have two Battletech Mechs that are still in the packs that I will have to build and paint, one is a Madcat, my favourite Battletech model.
