Mech scale Leopard
« on: 24 February 2011, 20:05:50 »
Just wondering if there is any chance of it ever being put back into production. It was a fun piece.

Always a chance if the molds are still good. If it was produced by a 3rd party like the modern mapscale ships who knows?

It will most likely never be put back into production. It was discontinued due to poor sales.

I did not even know that there was a map scale Leopard.  [tickedoff]

Oh, does that mean the resin dropships are not Mech-scale?

Big box for big ship. It's actually bigger than the picture.

The current dropships on the website are Map Scale while the old Leopard (See Picture of box above) was Mech Scale which is much bigger then the current Map Scale Resin ones.

It was in Total Warfare behind some 10th Lyran Gaurd mechs.

That is a mech-scale Leopard in back of the Lyrans (p89).

That Leopard looks way too cartoonish, a problem that extends to many battletech dropships.
Captain is hilariously easy to set off, like a walking barrel of gunpowder within a self contained field of destructium and a great big button on his forehead that says "Push me for fireworks".

For what it's worth, the paint scheme in Total Warfare makes it look slightly less cartoonish......
