IWM at Gen Con 2017
« on: 03 August 2017, 22:28:22 »
Iron Wind Metals at Gen Con 2017 announcement

The link above is the announcement thread that has what all we will have at Gen Con and a image of the LE Enforcer III ENF-7D. There is also a link to the download folder for the Battletech Alpha List PDF files.

Now you will notice that we are only listing one new Con Special Lance pack not two like I mentioned before. I just found out today that the Cougar and Centurion D will not make it in time to be produced before Gen Con. The CAD work has been done for some time, they just got held up after that process. So we will just have the 3150 Federated Suns Lance Pack.

NOTE: Main announcement post linked above has been updated with link to the images

Owe that is nice, same for the 9W2 in the lance pack. Joel did a excellent job on them, its not your normal Project Phoenix Marauder :). I will not have the Marauders and Templars III until mid next week.

If this isn't true, I will track you down, and castigate you, while removing your perogatives.   :)

Classic would be wonderful, but I'm not expecting that. A good new Marauder will make me happy, and make me give IWM more money O0

Definitely not the classic, but a new project Phoenix Marauder yes.

Holy crap that's a stacked list of new miniatures! I am excited to see these. I wish I could go to Gencon and see them in person (and no doubt purchase many)

Marauder Battlesuits!

Can we please get a size comparison picture of this soon, please? I need to know if I need to order five suits per squad, or if it's big enough that I'll only be able to fit one per base.

As soon as the primitive Orion and Archer hit the store, I will be able to make order and build that primitive force.

Everything looks good.  That Enforce III 7D mini makes it design look better than the picture from XTRO Republic III! 

I've cooled down on buying minis, but i'm tempted to get couple of theses.

Similar to Warg but squatter. It fits on a battleforce hex base. I have a image of it taken for the store I can try and get up.

You should just assume you can fit five suits on each base. If you're wrong, the extra suits are like bonus squads.  ;)

(this was how I bought ironholds)

Though I also want a size comparison. Gotta figure out how to set up a squad of marauders riding a marauder.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

I like the PP Marauder designs (although the minis themselves can have disturbingly skinny legs... 😁).
I'm very interested to see this new version!

Is it physically possible to fit five on a standard base, or one a mm or two bigger?
