That would be a figure that would be entirely too tiny and easy to lose. It would need to be small enough to fit inside a Stinger's head.

No...I mean in 6mm scale...So when a mech gets destroyed I have a ejected mechwarrior
Maybe things like Davion or Kurita Infantry?

Just glueing a single one of them onto a base, could substitute a mechwarrior, i think

Centaur and Taranis are the two that I'd really like to see.

It would be the size of an infantry mini

Baphominiatures had some thiny 6mm pilots. But i would be happy to see something similar from IWM. Even a hexbase with ejected seat, parachute and pilot would be great.

Hmm, I must have missed it . . . were the prominences not that noticeable?

Beats me.  It's an online exclusive (like all Battle Armor these days).

Yeah . . . my store orders directly from IWM now so I can get all sorts of neat stuff w/o worrying about shipping and support my FLGS too.  Its win win . . . I want one of those, and to paint it as Wonder Woman . . . but that is some detail I probably cannot reach.

Because this is the "Suggestions for future Battle Armor Fan Funding poll" thread?  ???
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.

While GRUD's answer is the correct one, to answer casperionx's questions, you have to have enough people that want it or finance it directly.  Warships probably aren't a big enough seller to warrant regular production either.

IIRC, somebody solo-financed a mech for prizes at his tourney. No idea what happened to the moulds.

But Speck is the person to talk to there, not this thread.

They were not stored if I remember correctly. (This was the MWDA Spider with mace)
The financier got all 300 copies of the mini. Granted it was only a custom arm (maybe two arms)

I know it isn't power armor but I have always wanted a ejected mechwarrior

Yeah, I'm into this.

Ideally a couple of variations on mechwarriors. I've painted up a Davion Infantry or two as mechwarriors before, and I have a couple of Nighthawks ordered. Maybe a "non-combatants" set. Techs, medics, officers, Solaris fans... all that stuff. But 28mm Mechwarriors. Yes.

Armour-wise, gotta be Cuchulainn at the top of my list.

I remember reading that the financier also requested the mold be broken so it couldn't be reused.

I've never heard of a MWDA Spider w/ a Mace.

Interesting.

Not sure I want a mace for my Spider, but, would look cool like he's going to smack you in the head.

Very interesting, I like the JJ effects on that mini.

I can't help but notice that the artist who did the unit symbol on the web page must have reading issues.

Can't find a place to post something besides Battle Armor.
So I would like to put on the list the arms for the Novacat A.
Also I know warships are not suppose to be listed but the Newgrange Yardship needs to be done!
