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...

I'm game to support vintage vehicles. That's the era I mostly play and so would happily contribute.

I’d also go for alternate turrets for the carrier series like the AC/2, laser, and MRM

Gossamer is possible. Would also support alternate turrets for the Carrier series. And would drop a little on the 3026 Goblin.

I love the Gossamer, carrier turrets and Goblin 3026 (as long as it's in the smaller scale of old tanks).

But when I realized that the Predator Tank Destroyer was still lacking a miniature, I was sad. I would definitely throw my lot behind that one, with alternate gun barrels for the differing versions.

 . . . so does this mean we are getting alternate gun versions?  I mean so far there is just a original AC/20 and the modern LB-20X . . . are you saying we might get a iHGR?  HAG? . . . Plasma Rifle- I mean it is Capellan . . .

Well, the iHGR version is described in TRO 3150, p. 66, and I'm hopeful that we'll still see the RS "sometime soon."

Also, I'd be happy to throw in an extra 50 or whatnot to sculpt the basic AC/20 of the "Original" version to be longer and more slender, with a "saukopf" type gun mantlet, per the original illustration.

Oh, it is in that collection of 3145/3150 RS that gets discussed around campfire tables like the Clan ERLL Juliano, Orion C, and others.  I was wondering b/c all I saw in MegaMek last week was the two Predators I mentioned.

Has there been any movement in what might come up for fan funding next? I haven’t heard much on this front since interest was trying to be drummed up for some Mad Cat III variants.

I'm just hoping the Celerity gets a sculpt soon and maybe the Stefan Amaris Battleship.

Just saw an GenCon award winning 10mm printed Jade Phoenix miniature made and painted by one of the lead CamoSpecs artists.  Looks awesome.

Is the Jade Phoenix available for funding?

We'll have to wait until the next round of Fan Financing opens up.

Speaking of, any idea when that will be? I know the backlog earlier this year kind of threw the schedule out of whack.

I would be surprised if a current/recent mech design like that came up for fan funding since it probably is on their schedule somewhere.

IWM can make the Prime. People will be throwing money at a fan financed A variant as fast as they can!

The Sojourner was fan financed.  The White Raven was almost financed until Catalyst pulled the plug on it on account of it being in the Mercenaries Kickstarter (as the Black Python).
