A gorgeous Firestarter hero mech and yet Flamers still languish in a horrible state of affairs. Fix Flamers and I'd love to shell out the cash for that hero.

Can these mechs be used in QP or are they Solaris mode only?? It's a silly question but it's an actual concern

They will be like all other Hero 'Mechs currently in-game. They can be used in quick play and will have their own unique Division rating assigned to them to be used in Solaris.

Its a Solaris pack as each of these 'Mechs are based on Solaris fighters from the fiction. Those who have read "Warrior: En Garde" and "Illusions of Victory might know them well already ;)

These mechs will be usable in all modes. Except where tonnage limits apply.

Considering that this includes multiple assault mechs, for less than the cost of a generic cbill assault mech for MC...

There's no way this is going to always be available like mech packs. This is, guaranteed, a limited time deal. The mechs might become available for MC, but there's no way you'll always see these 7 mechs available for just 30 dollars.

Some of these mechs are a bit generic, but there's two that interest me already. One of which is the Firestarter; I love ballistics on the arms. Left arm weapons on a Griffin without being doomed to Sparky? Definitely a plus. I love me some Riflemen. The rest is meh, but can't deny the Banshee with multiple arm mounted weapons. Banshee's biggest issue is the lack of arm mounted weaponry; makes it very hard to defend against faster threats. Might help me try the chassis again.

You guys are Silly.

So this is what Paul meant by expecting Solaris Sooner then expected, these mechs seem interesting. May I ask who designed the skins since Lauren no longer does the majority of the unique patterns?

What about the quirks? It's a good value given how much individuals heroes cost.

But aside from the Urbie with a higher engine cap and the Mad Dog with CT energy points. They're not very standout. Couldn't give us like a Rifleman with JJs or masc? Something?
