Well the Guys from Battlemechclub surprised me once again. Besides the two new kits from a few weeks ago, they also launched a 1/60th model of the Summoner !
The Summoner is a highly mobile heavy OmniMech that is commonly used by Clan Jade Falcon in a wide variety of roles. Barely a second generation OmniMech, the Jade Falcons introduced the Summoner just after becoming the first Clan to win OmniMech technology from Clan Coyote in 2863. The Summoner earned the code name Thor for its powerful, yet simple arsenal. The Summoner’s balanced mix of speed, mobility, armor, and firepower make it a highly effective and reliable OmniMech.
The Summoner is powered by a lightweight 350 XL engine that gives the ‘Mech a top speed of 86.4 km/h. The mobility of the Summoner is enhanced with five jump jets that allow it to jump up to one hundred and fifty meters. The Summoner has fourteen double heat sinks which are capable of handling the heat produced in most of the ‘Mechs configurations with ease. To protect it from damage, the Summoner carries nine and a half tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor.
In its primary configuration the Summoner has a basic yet effective arsenal. The primary direct fire weapon is an ER PPC backed up by an LB 10-X Autocannon that can fire both standard and cluster ammunition. For fire support and bombardment, the Summoner has an LRM-15 launcher.
The kit itself is already based on the TRO 3050 Upgrade and features a lot of nice details. But I won’t get into to much words, I’ll let the pics speak for them, enjoy !
One kit is already on its way to me as the production is limited to 50 pieces or so, so hurry up if you want one of these : firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Just let Chris know you’ve got the info from me, Geert.
