Added the Cross Mirage, Helmine and Junchoon pages to the demo page.

It's taking shape slowly.

Added the Devoncha, Jagd Mirage (text info), Maglow and Vatshu. I'm really hoping I can find a way to set up my scanner soon.

Added profiles for the Kan, 3 Sirens, Cloudsschatze, Ashura Temple, Babiron, Atoll Swans and Bangdoll.

Can anyone tell me where to get a color Siren F illustration?

The pic you have with the description of the Siren A is actually the Siren F. Its the same MH Kentauri used when he killed Colus XXIII. There is a color illustration of the Siren A in Plastics Style (nice and big..this is the one you want to scan) and Knight Flags (not as big as Plastics Style)

If you don't yet have those books, you might be able to find a pic of it online somewhere. I myself managed to obtain a few hundred FSS pics on my HD from scouring the web a few years back. Many of the sites that used to host those pictures are probably down t hough, and my computer with the FSS Pics isn't the one thats online, otherwise I'd simply e-mail them to you. Unfortunately my floppy drive is also not working so thats a hinderance as well.

I'll look around the web and see if I can procure a pic of the Siren A. Even if its a pic of the model...

By the way, everything is looking good. We just need to get some basic FSS information (introduction, MH intro and character intro) and you'll be able to put the FSS section up soon.

Added the Zakker and Schpeltor, or is it Schpeletor? Nu Soard is sending me profiles at an admirable rate. I'll have more up when I can process some more images.

I see you changed the pics of the Siren A and Siren F. Excellent.

How about that pic you had of the Siren F that was up earlier? Any way to link that on the Siren F page. It was gorgeous.

How are things progressing on the Scan front?

It's looking fuzzy right now but I think I can scan some stuff this weekend.

I'm going to adjust some stuff on the Cross Mirage and Siren F pages. If I can pull my 5 Star Stories books out of storage I'll really be able to hit it.

I'm sorry to say things really didn't go as planned this past weekend. My wife and I are trying to arrange for my computer to be moved to our own apartment this week.

I'll let everyone know when I'm back in business. Nu Soard, I hope my difficulties won't discourage you from continuing with the project.

Not at all.

Real life comes first. Projects like this are notorious for taking a back seat to home-affairs. I myself will be running into difficulty for a short time as we will be moving in a few weeks and I'll likely lose internet at the end of this month and won't have access (or at least Fast access) for upwards of 2 weeks.

In the meantime, I'll try to send you as much as possible in the next week and a half before my internet goes away.

I hooked up the scanner tonight and scanned the 6 mortar headds from Characters 8. I'll do color correction tomorrow when the light's better. I'm also getting some images of the Jagd Mirage. I'm not trying for the 4-page spread yet. That will be an all-day project.

I scanned page 19 from Characters 4: Fatima. Nu Soard Graphite!

I put up the Blue Armor page. I'll get the line art for it later.

Still need to touch up the Auge, Apache and Vaiola images.

I loaded up the Apache and Auge. That takes me to the end of the profiles I've received so far.

I think this Knight of Gold II is the Patrasque Mirage. Isn't it a different machine than the original Knight of Gold? While the original KoG is dimension hopping with Lachesis this one is being used by Atropos and Upandla, right? Maybe we should write it up that way and see if anyone disagrees. Or maybe you've got better info from your research?

It would be nice to get something on the Terror, Horned and Rouge Mirages. I'm not going to lean too hard. At this stage of the game I'd like to get those articles written and take the page out of "preview" status. It would probably be good to get profiles for the people/fatimas from Characters 1, though.

I don't know how much time I'll have this week but I should be able to do something. Oh, and the Jagd Mirage images shouldn't take too much longer.

Thanks for the excellent research, Nu Soard.
