Hey! So I made a video which goes over most of the stuff I wanted to say, but there's so much left to math!


Pertinent details: 75 ton IS heavy mech, between 4 and 7 energy hardpoints per chassis, 3 have 1-3 ballistics, one has 2 missiles. 3 of 4 variants have jumpjets. One high mount, rest are low. Max speed is 85 KPH for all but 1 variant.

Initial assessment: Might be a serviceable mid-range weapons boat. Potential "brawler" but max speed is too low to be that great at it, and engine would have to be XL.

Comments: I like the aesthetic. It's a lot like a skinny King Crab in some ways - particularly the side profile. Front profile is more like an Ebon Jaguar. It's the King Jaguar. Badass.


  • Endo, Ferro (max armor with excess shaved off), STD300 (71.3 KPH)
  • 3xAC/5 with 6 tons of ammo
  • 3 Medium Lasers
  • 12xDHS

  • Endo, Standard Armor (max with excess + .5t shaved off), XL345 (82 KPH), 2xJJ
  • 3xLarge Pulse Laser
  • 2xMedium Pulse Laser
  • 19xDHS

  • Endo, Standard Armor (max everywhere but RA at 18pts), XL300 (71.3 KPH), 1xJJ
  • 2xAC/5 with 5 tons of ammo
  • 3xLarge Laser
  • 15xDHS

  • Endo, Ferro (max everywhere but LA at 0 and legs down 1pt), STD285 (67.7 KPH), 1xJJ
  • 1xGauss Rifle with 3 tons of ammo
  • 3xLarge Laser
  • 1xMedium Laser
  • 12xDHS
So yeah, 3 of the 4 are mid-range builds that fit decently well into the meta, with the exception of the MAD-5D which at first glance seems to be the worst of the variants and isn't well suited to any reasonable range. Hopefully we'll see something interesting in its quirks though. Aside from that one variant, we've got a solid dakka boat, a mixed dakka/laser platform, and of course a full meta Gauss Vomit beast. Some of these builds can be interchanged, they can all be modified, and maybe you don't like any of them, but I predict that they will mostly be in Tier 3. The MAD-5M and MAD-BH2 might make it to Tier 2, and the MAD-5D could well be Tier 4, but they'll all probably stay in Tier 3.


Pertinent details: 70 ton IS heavy mech, between 6 and 9 energy hardpoints per chassis, 2 have 1-2 ballistics, one has 3 missiles, and the last is pure energy. None of the variants have jumpjets. Mounts are, for the most part, upper-middle. Max speed is 86.6 KPH for all variants.

Initial assessment: Might be a serviceable mid-range weapons boat. A couple of variants seem to be well-suited to shorter-range engagements but they aren't shoe-horned into it. Can run dual AC/20 or Gauss. Fuck yeah.

Comments: I said dual AC/20 or Gauss. DUAL. Fucking fuck. It's been a long time since we had an IS heavy introduced with that. I'm excited.


  • Endo, Standard Armor (arms at 3, everything else max'd), XL300 (76.4 KPH)
  • 2xGauss Rifle with 5 tons of ammo
  • 4xMedium Laser
  • 11xDHS

  • Endo, Standard Armor (arms at 19, everything else max'd), XL340 (86.6 KPH)
  • 5xLarge Laser
  • 19xDHS

  • Endo, Standard Armor (one arm at 0, other at 22, everything else max'd), XL300 (76.4 KPH)
  • 3xLarge Laser
  • 2xLRM10A with 5 tons ammo
  • TAG and BAP
  • 15xDHS

  • Endo, Standard Armor (both arms empty, legs at 55, everything else max'd), XL295 (75.1 KPH)
  • 4xAC/5 with 9 tons ammo
  • Option to drop ammo for Medium Lasers, 1:1
  • 10xDHS
I'm seeing a lot more strength from the Warhammer than I did from the Marauder. All of the builds have really solid meta-oriented builds available, and can branch out to other stuff very well too. The obvious weak link here is the WHM-7S, but even that has some uniqueness to it, and if you get desperate you can sorta dupe the WHM-6D build, just not as well. The Hero mech is the big winner with a really super powerful dakka build, one which obsoletes all other dakka heavies with the possible exception of the JM6-DD. Hard to say which of the two will be better before we see quirks. Anyways yeah. I'm expecting at least 1 of these to land in Tier 2, and the rest to be upper Tier 3. Very pleased with its power...though I am a little irked that the best variant will probably be the Hero. Grrr.
