You have successfully polished a turd. I'm hoping that the Penthiselia will take the title of "Fuglyeautiful" when the mini comes out.

Now look, boys, I 'aint much of a hand at makin' speeches, but I got a pretty fair idea that something doggone important is goin' on back there. And I got a fair idea the kinda personal emotions that some of you fellas may be thinkin'. Heck, I reckon you wouldn't even be human bein's if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelin's about nuclear combat.

Is that a standard IWM hexbase?

Yeah, there's really nothing you can do with the Target.  I remember the furor when it came out being so bad that the sculptor (same guy who brought us the Reseen Galahad) stopped sculpting 'Mechs.  I like the way you mounted the missiles to match the 3085 variant.  I'll have to remember that if I ever paint mine.  Which I doubt.

Yes it is :)    It's a 40 tonner #P

You know if they had put it beside an IMP they would have had a clue.

To be fair to the sculptor, the original sculpt from MW:DA wasn't exactly their finest moment. So he had a pretty daunting task ahead in the first place- make one of the dumpiest-looking Mechs in the line look decent. He may not have been aware that the DA sculpt was enormous for a 40-ton Mech, and went from there with creating this one.

The Galahad was horrible for it's own reasons, but this one may have been doomed from the start.

In lite of this. He failed to do his homework. so he failed.  :P  I blame the IWM for not looking at the prototype and saying Oh My we need to shrink that. :-[

I put a Targe on my "To do" list about 3 months ago. It seems to keep getting pushed back by *anything* else.

I'd look in IWM' online magazine. Targe listed as archived already

But... When I look on this pic, I see a armless Bushwacker.
And I like Buswackers. Even useless Bushwackers.
Maybe... maybe, I should like and Targe too?

Maybe bashing a Bushwacker would be a smarter way to build a decent Targe?

Good job, life gave you a lemon and you made lemonade.  :)
When I come back from a Mighty Quest,
I have no need for Sleep or Rest!
I head to a Tavern for a Drink,
And get so Drunk I Cannot Think!
A Wench by my side and a Jug of Mead,
These are the things that I Most Need!
So I sit back and Sing this Song,
And Drink and Party All Night Long!
