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

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.

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.

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

The Uziel looks like an Uziel!! Those Marauders are sharp looking too. Everything there looks really nice. Well done!

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.

Alright . . . the Marauder . . . well, the arms do not look like the art for the -7D.  The gun pods on those arms are great for the original and some of the other models however.  I do like that the legs are not as stork-ish and the length of the body has shrunk a bit, the cockpit does not project as much.

So the Lance Pack info disappeared off the release page- I know it has a Uziel, Marauder 9W2 and a Enforcer but what is the other design.

The Anubis and Avalanche look fantastic. I might have to pick up multiple Anubis just to torment Hellbie.

Are the arms for the Wendigo and Avalanche interchangeable like the MW:DA versions?

Actually, it's a -5L.

If you don't like it, don't buy it. That's cool. Nothing is going to please everyone. We had an opening to try to do something cool with a small opportunity when other plans went to crap, so we did.

Oh, I LIKE it better than my 9S, fixes the stork legs and other things . . . but I was interested in seeing the different style weapons pods for the -7D, the tri-vaned ERLL arms.  The body & legs are spot in . . . lol, and I have a good idea where those arms REALLY come from . . .

Just use the tri-arms anyway. Unless there's a really big difference in how they connect, it'll be a quick swap.  And if there is a really big difference, I'll be a bit of cutting and a slightly less quick swap.
