Ogre BA!  Checks off Regulus, League in general, and it was sold widely to mercs!

I know I'm most def in the minority here but I'd love to see the Atlas -K2 at some point.

That would be nice.

Now be correct. You want the Football/Futurama Atlas.

Which version? As it appeared in the TRO or Alex Iglesia's version on the cover of Era Report: 3145 punching a Warwolf? I would be down for the much more  classic Atlas-looking Alex Iglesia version.

You wouldn't have a pic of that would you?

Never really looked at it but I thought that was a Charger!

Gossamer VTOL
Celerity Done (I am inspired to check interest after reading Blood Will Tell.)

The Gossamer is a sweet looking VTOL and I'd be interested in it. The Celerity is a little more niche, but is still a neat looking design. I'd be more interested in the Lich than the Celerity.

It honestly doesn't look like any canon mech I can think of.

I always thought it looked more like a proto with the head and shoulders the way it is, just too big . . . but when you realize it has a jump pack strapped to the back still, yeah it makes it more Atlas.  Have to look at the baby blue paint scheme clashing with the utilitarian gray of the jump pack.

Lich? I think that has a sculpt.

Alpha Wolf and Mastodon would be nice to see! Will all the Rec Guide units get minis regardless at some point? Or will they need to go the fan funding route?

Since fan financing is for more niche or conventional arms, I am not sure such flagships as the Iron Cheetah, Mastodon, or Carrion Crow would qualify since they might be on the non-released plan.

Depends on whether or not IWM plans to do multiple variants of them.  The Heirofalcon and War Crow were both flagship mechs that got fan financing so that multiple configs could be made.

Throw in the hammerhead any you have my list. In IWMs shoes I'd prioritize the hammerhead, I expect they'd sell well.

I know I want multiple.  And that's pretty rare for me when it comes to a mech with no variants.

While I Love MOST Quads (I don't even have ANY "Like" for the Balius!), I just don't care for the art for the Celerity.   :-\  However, after seeing the minis for a few designs I didn't like the art for, I liked the minis enough to buy them.  I wasn't that impressed with the Sarath and Jaguar art, for instance, but now have 4 Jaguars, 4 Sarath Prime, and 2 each Sarath A & B.  ;D  There are a few bipeds I didn't like the art for, but I got the minis once I saw them.

While I wouldn't toss any money for a Celerity before seeing the sculpt, I DO like the Lich enough to toss money for IT before seeing the sculpt.   :thumbsup:  And I Might very well buy the Celerity (well, FOUR of them really) if I like the final result.  But I'm not going to help fund it.   :-\
To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO  room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object. 3D Prints are just 3D Repros.

Something to bear in Mind. Defending the BT IP is Frowned upon here.

Yes please.  Especially the Celerity.  Gossamer next.  I’m also fine with the Stormwolf and Amerok but they are in 3rd and 4th place.

We will most likely start off with a Funding thread on the Gossamer. I am working on making sure I have a sculptor lined up before I create the thread.

No one wants the TRO 3026 Goblin tank... the last combat vehicle we don't have a miniature for?  I guess that ship has sailed...

Gossamer and Celerity are the current topics from speck. The rest is just noise. If he asks for new suggestions, I will happily support the Goblin.

I am a strong supporter of completing backfill. Hell, I paid for over half of the Von Rohrs. I'd love to see some of the old vees finally get made.
