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

No-more skinny legs.

@ Speck

Just to be clear does this mean the 3rd quarter releases will be at Gen Con?

I cannot find the MAD picture that was supposed to be up?  Might just be the 504/502 problems

Speck mentioned "next week", last week. It's only just 'next week' down here. I imagine it'll be up by Friday.

Yes

Sorry I thought he said it would be up Saturday . . . on Thursday.

I said on Thursday that they shipped me most of the new stuff except the Templar III and Marauder that went out yesterday. I will be taking pictures later this week after all are assembled.

Go easy on him - at least he's working on getting you pics. Unlike me, who can sit back and say I've already handled them... without making any move to share.  >:D

A question: Does the Marauder have two or three dorsal gun options? Or is that one exclusive the GenCon pack?

Also, do you have a side-profile pic of the Marauder? Just out of curiosity.

The quality is there. Especially the Uzielle is already bought, but what about the Marauders? Is this due to the HG lawsuit? Is the retconned Marauder already in the bin? Please tell me I´m wrong :-[ :-[ :-[

Edit: Is this a retconned Wolverine or a primitive Variant? I lost track of these a long time ago.

Which marauder? The project phoenix variant or the marauder battlesuit? Both existed before the lawsuit or the creation of the current crop of "classics".

The Wolverine is the primitive variant.
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.

As to the images, my only complaint is that that marauder battlesuit looks like it'd be too large for me to kitbash a squad of them riding a Marauder battlemech. :P

Liam's right. The mech is a Project Phoenix, and the other is a battlesuit unrelated except by name. Both have absolutely zero effect on any suits, and are not cause for any worry.

Da MADs... {>{>

...Murphy's Cheese, how wide is the MAD BA?!?

I do not have a measurement on it, but is on a Battleforce Hex base.

A question: Does the Marauder have two or three dorsal gun options? Or is that one exclusive the GenCon pack?

Also, do you have a side-profile pic of the Marauder? Just out of curiosity.


The Marauder 9W2 is in the Lance pack and then there is another blister that is the Marauder 7D/9D.

No to a side profile pic.

Which base is used with the Mad BA?

Battleforce Hex Base, smaller then normal hex base.
