CDR-3R Crusader by Norsehound CDR-3R Crusader by Norsehound
Finally got this one done. The CRD-3R Crusader, intended to be the original model everyone loved and played with in the original Battletech (or Battledroids) sets. Better than the Reseen version, and serves as an alternative to the rip-off artwork that got FASA in trouble.

One asterisk for the design is the fact that, logically, the SRM ammunition in the center torso cannot service the weapons mounted in the legs (nor can the machine gun ammunition for the arms!). The original Crusader artwork (if you can call it that) arguably has the SRMs mounted in the left and right torsos instead of in the legs. Since I figure this was perhaps an artistic oversight (or something) I just left it as is. If anyone (like Catalyst Game Labs, current holder of the Btech license) has issues with it, they can pay me to change it.

This was always my favorite mech, and I gotta say I love your version better!

Awesome! Always loved the crusader. I too had doubts about the Reseen version. But Matt Plog's version in TRO3085 really thicked it our and made it look respectable, you should check it out!

I've been spending a lot of money on battletech stuff recently :\ I suppose I should pick up TRO3085 as well?

Not just out of curiosity for this Crusader you speak of, but for the LAMs I gather are in it too.

He definitely means business with all of those large missiles.
