Wasp, Loki, and Goshawk? Sounds like a good release lineup! Will need at least 2 or 3 wasps, if not more.

Any update on the release for the Ostscout? Want to put my order in at the new flgs in the next week or two and really want to include a pair or lance of ostscouts.

Speck - I will assist you with this one if it is ok? It sounds like you guys at IWM are a bit busy at the moment . . .

I got an email on Monday from Melissa at IWM indicating that Q4 2016 releases are coming out this week. The 4th Quarter 2016 BattleTech Releases are:

Vandal LI-O Prime Mech [20-5135] - 65 Tons - TRO 3145 / 3150,  $14.75
Triskelion TRK-4V Tripod Class Mech [20-5138] - 75 Tons - TRO 3145 / 3150, $17.25
Ostscout OTT-7J Mech [20-5140] - 35 Tons - Combat Manual Mercs, $10.95
Undead Lance Pack [10-058] - TRO 3145 / 3150, $44.95
Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

Always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.

Yep...these are already out & available, but typically it's about a month before they show up on IWM's site to allow retailers a chance to sell them first.

Unfortunately, Melissa recently shipped an order for me which USPS International tracking is showing is currently sitting in Dubai. So I will probably be waiting 3-4 months before I put in my next order and get my hands on some Ostscouts for my ebay store  :'(

Not yet complete, so I wouldn't count on it before February, given a natural slowdown around the holidays. IWM generally wants the master in-hand 6 weeks before release, and release to distribution before selling direct. Knowing that they allow of month or so before offering new releases on their site, that points to the later side of Q1 if ordering from IWM.

Well, it would be through the new game store that opened up. It actually seems busier than the one that closed around May with many many happy people. Keep harping on them to finish getting setup with IWM... I've got money burning a hole in my pocket waiting to purchase a lance of Shadow Hakws and a pair of Ostscouts. Had my fingers crossed to add Wasps sometime in Jan but I guess I can wait... at least they aren't Q1 2018 or ??? like the new intro box Randall mentioned.

Soo... another annoying question. When will the 2017 release schedule be up, or at the very least what will the order code for the Wasp be so I can make a list for the local store.

Does anyone have pics of the new highlander variants. I'm interested in placing an order but don't want to buy what I can't see

Photos from B-3 (the sculptor) of the master for the new Highlander mini.

Photos of the variants (some of which may not be released yet, unsure due to lack of time and energy to keep up with all the latest developments).

Thanks! The good thing with these is that they paint up well. No poop-polishing here. They're big, well-detailed minis that should take just about any scheme and make it look good. Fair warning though, they've got a lot of pieces to deal with. We're talking mid- to high-teens for part count. Some of that is from the alternate weapons all being separate and going over the built-in parts for the -732, but we're still looking at 3 pieces per leg.

Very well polished paint job, Psycho.  I may end up picking up one.  I don't really need it, but it's less ugly than the two current molds i have.

That has to be one of the funniest excuses I've seen for buying minis.   ;D   O0

Very nice, the Triskelion turned out to be great looker from what the picture reveals.  Yen-Low-Wang pretty nice, i guess it also could act as Centurion's AH variant since their both armed similar without the "Wolverine" claws on the hand.

Vandal looks neat as well.

I've been meaning to stop by an pick up a missing piece for an Avatar I bought anyway, so I'll have to pick up a Bakeneko while I'm there. Looks like Christmas is coming early!

Sure but there were only a few they were releasing as metal until the plastic comes out.  I want my classic Marauder . . . and the picture has just been a tease.

Hey Speck, I just noticed this.

Quote
Ostscout OTT-7J [20-5140] - "This product was added to our catalog on Saturday 09 July, 2016."

This is off by a few months, isn't it?   ???  Isn't this the Revised Ostscout?

It has the same "added to" date for the Centurion CN9-YLW / CN9-YLW2 "Yen Lo Wang"[BT-395] as well.   :-\
