Great work!
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

obviously it's a year old so there are a lucky few that have transcended from art to reality

When do you anticipate creating the 2020 fan financing survey? Also, would it be possible to create a google doc or some other type of spreadsheet that shows the status of past and upcoming projects?

With the current state of the worl, including IWM being shut down, it's entirely plausible that they won't do fan financing in 2020.

New Fan Funding projects are on hold until backlog is cleaned up. Most are near final stages before they are released. Will be getting status updates once factory is open and Mike is caught up.

When we resume, I would like to add the Peregrine and Corone warships to the list.

That seems reasonable to me. Really glad the Peregrine was finally statted.

If requests are being accepted, I'd like to submit more 28mm Battle Armor, especially the Longinus.

I don't think they are. It's been said they are quite backlogged, sadly.

Just tossing one out there.  I saw the Hippogryph was funded.  Can we talk about the Hobgoblin Protomech?  I would definitely go for that since other Society Protos exist; Boggart and Sprite.

Still waiting to see the Defender Battlecruiser get a sculpt.

Possible once IWM is able to release items from KS in metal.

I hope the AS7-K2 Atlas from TRO 3085 can be done at some point.

I would be happier, first, with a normal scale Elemental in metal, for the record.

They would most likely need to be Fan Funded.

Guys if it's not a flagship or otherwise common mech it's probably going to need to be fan funded.  There are about a thousand designs out there without minis and I doubt Speck wants to quote/reply "Fan Funding" to all of them one at a time.

This is an odd request, but something that I would be interested in seeing:

What about busts of characters?

It seems a fairly common miniature to paint, even if it is not for gaming purposes. A lot of prominent painters have done some really spectacular things painting a bust. I'm not sure if it would be smart to do it in metal because of the size, but if possible I think it would catch the eye of a lot of enthusiasts -- even those outside of BattleTech.

My recommendation would be to do a bust of Natasha Kerensky. Even better if it could be based off of the CCG art.

Again, I don't know if this is possible. It may or may not need to be done in plastic or resin rather than metal because of the sheer size. That being said, the cost is probably not that much of an issue. Many busts seems to range between $45 to $65. The museum scale sculpts are already that much. If anything, it may be more difficult to find the sculptor willing to do the work.

I would love to do that, but issue might be sculpting cost and would enough be sold to make up the costs.

I'm definitely game for funding if it becomes possible. I do understand that there is much to consider about the feasibility, but worth seeing if IWM is up for it.
