Once the display of might is ended, only the strongest will remain on its tires, and free to mate with the dump truck harem.

Only half a lance each? They should have used the Alpha Strike rules.

Kind of gives you a better idea of how awkward the close-range combat would be with one of the WizKids Mechwarrior Dark Age Construction Mechs.

"I run right up to the Battlemech and…whack it with my digging bucket? Are you kidding me? I'm fighting against a fusion-powered DEATH MACHINE with a walking BACKHOE?"

I spent several months following a guy in an excavator tearing down trees to widen a road (and got paid for it!), and I am here to tell you, whacking things with the bucket arm will surely break that arm.

I know it will because my guy did it several times whacking down trees, until he figured out that he had mad shoving power and learned to just push the trees over, even great tall eucalyptus trees.

I also learned (as infantry in Mechwarrior must) to stay MUCH farther away from the mech than you possibly imagine to be safe.

This is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen.
