2 Highlander Resculpt Variants (734 & 738 if I recall) based off the recently released new Highlander Resculpt.
Arctic Wolf II A, B, C (last I heard they were having CAD issues).
Thor II A & B (last I heard they were having CAD issues).
Vulture MK III (last I heard they were having CAD issues).
Black Knight "Red Reaper"...should hopefully be out soon, but I honestly haven't heard anything.
Arion...no word.
Chimera & 2K variant...no word.

I don't know if any of the CAD issues have been resolved or not, the last I heard, they weren't. Beyond that...I don't know what else is in the pipe.

All unsubstantiated, but the Centurion Omni, Gotterdammerung, Juliano, and Templar III all showed up as preorders on my FLGS' website. They aren't in the habit of posting a lot of BT-related vaporware so I'm partially inclined to believe that at least some of these are planned for 2016.

Also, there is the Arion and Chimera resculpts coming, not sure on timing on those though.  Quite a few more in the works, but that is all I can say ;)

Completely forgot about those! I've added them to my list as well.

Well i've made 5 sculpts for ironwind so far that to my knowledge have not yet been released.
The Vulture MKIII (I have no idea what happened with that)
The Rifleman III (I have no idea what happened with that)
The Lu Wei Bing
The Quasimodo
The Gün

The Lu Wei Bing and quasimodo I handed those in late hence why they have probably not been released yet. But myself and ironwind have since changed our workflow a bit so that handing in models late will hopefully no longer happen (at least on my end) there are some others in the pipeline though that have not been announced yet that I am working on.

I look forward to seeing the mini myself. It's funny i often get to see my miniatures after they are in stores and to this day i have never seen any of my "official" miniatures in real life even though i've been doing this for two years now.

Alex Iglesias's designs are often quite tricky to do because they have so much visual detail and stuff that often does not translate well to miniatures. I think the Lu wei is the mech i've spent the most time working on except for maybe the Ares.

I hope the Thor II A and Juliano are indeed a thing. Would love to buy those.

...Centurion Omni, Gotterdammerung, Juliano, and Templar III...

I want...well, all of those!

I've got my fingers crossed that there aren't so many itty-bitty pieces with these upcoming models. I'm working on putting together a Havoc and a Tiburon right now, and it's not exactly the most fun I've had constructing a mini. I could deal with all the parts on the bigger stuff like the Stalker II and Kodiak II, but these little guys are giving me fits. Oh, and to whomever is working on the Centurion omni, pretty-please, make that row of canisters on the shoulder all one piece that I can glue on rather than a bunch of separate little cylinder pieces. Trying to get those same things attached to my Ghost in something resembling a straight line with a pair of tweezers was painful!

Confirmation from whom?

"It's just that the Hegemony had one answer to every naval problem. 'I kills it with my battleships.'" - Liam's Ghost

Battleforce Space is too bulky. I vote we start calling it BattleFace.

That's great! Wish more Omni configurations came with an extra variant or two...but I know in speaking with IWM, costs can be prohibitive.

I am super excited to hear about the centurion not only being produced, but having variants as well. Sounds like the IWM release schedule post is a little out of date.  ;)
Why not Zoidberg?

What about the classic Warhammer?  They've had a prototype for at least 6 months.

I made that prototype for Catalyst, not Ironwind. Although I wouldn't rule out the posibility of it going to Ironwind at some point.
But whatever happens with that mini it's up to Catalyst.

From what I've understood, Catalyst will have the "Classics" first, in plastic. At some point IWM "MIGHT" produce them in metal, but I don't recall them ever officially saying they will.

Now...there's a LOT of rumors out there, such as the Classics being in an Alpha Strike Box Set. BOTH the assumption of them appearing in said box set, and the box set itself...have NOT been confirmed officially. It's all rumor at this time.

I don't know if it still stands, but at Gencon last year during the What's up with Catalyst panel they said it would be in both plastic and metal.

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.

I will be created a new post with several links in it. Just ran out of time the other night and got home late from work yesterday. Will be posted tonight.
