That deserves both a 'Woo' and a 'Hoo'! Of course, all the money I pledged to get the stupid cat built has already been spent on other minis so it looks like IWM will be getting even MORE of my money...Sneaky...Very sneaky, IWM!

Can we start the Suggestion Thread for 2017?

It's on my to do list while I have some downtime this week.

Awesome!

And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

It appears that the fan financing project has stalled. I know battlearmor wasn't on the table the first time around but I'm getting ready to place close to a $200 order with IWM or one of their distributors. I would rather put that money into some Xiphos BA or other sculpt and pick up some new minis for myself. A win for me and the community. Any chance that I can fund some Xiphos?

It seems the next round (Can we stop calling them "Quarters?" Each takes about a year) will begin after some official release or announcement thereof.

We are waiting to clear the Que (sp?) in other words.

I am working on something that I am hoping to post about this week for the Fan Finance program. When I have more details I will post them and will also announce when the next suggestion thread will be open.

I have make some adjustments to the Fan Finance Guidelines, mainly in that the money will be paid directly to IWM PayPal account and then IWM will by the sculptor since we will be using several sculptors going forward. Both Hand and CAD sculptors.

Find another (PayPal using) financier you trust and work it out with them?

i'd love to see this keep going in any format.

Frankly, if people hate PP, then it shouldn't be too much more a wrinkle to e-transfer to the person organizing a given sculpt and have them pass it one through whatever means.

Any money contributed during fan financing is distributed as credit for the IWM store.  Or, at least, that's how it worked when I chipped in on the Red Reaper a while back.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

That is a grey area that I would need to find out about. Will work on that and let you know.

Any chance we could possibly look at BattleTroops/AToW minis?

I've been using a lot of the old AD&D/Chaos Wars minis for my Pathfinder games and I feel it adds a lot to the immersion. The BattleTroops line (I think) is the same scale. If we could include more variety, I think it could help AToW.

Naturally, I totally recognize the financial implications to this. AToW is not extensively played by the fans and a funded line may not have the sales to justify their creation and production. I would hope they would be less costly sculpts to produce, but I honestly don't know enough about the process.

Just an idea to throw out there.

That odds are slim.

Need to get through the current list before adding anything new.

The Bellerophon, Von Rohrs, and DA Catapult (not to be confused with the Catapult II) were voted as the next three in the most recent round. Sometimes an individual will fund a sculpt as well. I don't know of anything like that is currently in the queue (or even possible).

Centurion Omni alt D was funded individually as was the (older) Rifleman III.

Anyone interested should contact speck directly.
