Drop the A, folks: it’s time for ‘Mechs not mecha. To be honest, I am real hot and cold on BattleTech: on the one hand, it doesn’t do MOST of the things I love about mecha, but on the other, it DOES do things I like about both tanks and ground level sci-fi. Despite this, we’re here to talk about the Atlas- a machine that, in my opinion, tries too hard to be a normal mecha, ignoring the strengths of BattleTech design. The skull is fun, though.
