Charger looks great.
This is a rare occasion when model looks better than the art.

HTM-27(S)...

...ya know, it’s not *too* far off the image on Sarna. If the missile nips were square and it actually had an armor skirt, it’d be there. It’s certainly not too Victoresque.

I like it.

The Charger looks so good.

Seeing the model has taken my enthusiasm from 4 to 10.

It looks nice, but the Charger should really have a head like the Quickdraw.

OMG!!!! THE CHARGER HERO QUIRKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A s***load of structure buffs AND a -70% (that's right, MINUS SEVENTY PERCENT) critical hit chance.

Visions of Piranha, Mist Lynx and other machine gun metabuilds firing round after round into armour critted components and shouting into their mikes, "DIE, YOU LUCKY *******! DIE!!!"........ all in vain.

Just glorious - I'm adding it to my purchase right now. Posted Image

The quirks look better than I expected, but I dunno why the Charger 1A5 and Lucky 7 got their agility acceleration and deceleration preemptively nerfed to lower values than the other variants (particularly the acceleration and deceleration, which are really awful for an 80-ton IS mech). Completely unnecessary.

Dont trust the quirks. They will be stripped off as soon as voices in chris's head will command him to. And this can happen at any time, even before c-bill release.

No idea why two Charger variants are so slow, worse mobility than that of the heavier assaults. Quirks are ok-ish. Victor is still a better brawler, Grasshoppers and Warhammers are better laser vomit mechs and Battlemasters are better large laser boats.

Hatamoto-Chi is just a sad robot. No reasonable amount of quirks can fix bad hardpoints and/or low engine cap.

Both mechs look great tho. Hope the animations are just as good.

This looks like a bunch of damn good brawlers but considering how long mechs with high structure/armor quirks kept their buffs(ANH,BSW etc.) I wonder how long it will last.

presumably the 1A1 and 3K have better agility to reflect them being more "maneuverable" with their stock 400 rated engines. it is pretty lame though.

really? these look pretty mediocre compared to the awesome and victor, with the possible exception of the charger 1A1 and N7.

Enough for clan players to hate playing their glass lightsaber confetti splashers.

I am glad people like it for I am unhappy and probably won't buy it. The flat head of the Charger looks horrible and ruins it for me; quirks are sufficient but imho they go in the wrong direction. I would have preferred higher agility instead of offensive quirks for the variants using a 400 engine. With those quirks there is no reason to play them as cavalry Mechs, which was my hope.

But that's just me. If you can have fun with it, just do it.

I'm not necessarily complaining about the 1A1 and 3K having higher agility on a relative scale, just that the L7 and 1A5 have such low agility in terms of an absolute scale. They will move clunkier than several assaults of higher tonnage with bigger payloads. The least agile Chargers should still be much more agile than the real big bois.
