Ok. Yes.

I would buy a dropship patterned beanbag to lounge in.

I know I can't compete against the Urbie plushie...

Jokes aside, the picture is a bit crappy but you can see the Marauder IIC in all its glory. It is damm gorgeous. Also, it has a metric ton of details and painting it has been delightful. I dedicate this picture to Darkisi. I didn't get enough time for a proper camera setup.

In every generation the Mad IIC looks good, this generation is clearly no exception.

Yeah despite the accused tiny bits on the Phoenix Mad IIC it’s one of my favorite sculpts

This one has looked incredible from the first sketch

This has been one of my top 5 most anticipated sculpts from the campaign, and it does not disappoint.  :thumbsup:

It will certainly stand in for the MAD II in this house. Damn fine looking design, sculpt, and artistry/paintwork by all involved.
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

With wave two seemingly right around the corner, what is happening with the remaining digital items?

I understand the fiction may need some more time, but I would have thought we'd have the two outstanding scenarios by now.

It looks incredibly awesome, even without a proper camera setup ;)

That dorsal gun is so much better than the one on the original.

I added that pack at the last moment. That mini makes me feel incredibly justified.

Stone Rhino, Supernova, Marauder IIC, Warhammer IIC & Hunchback IIC was a last minute force pack for you?  :o

I didn’t add one until I added a second Star Colonel. Also added a pair of Clan Striker Stars so I’d have a full second line Trinary.

Ugh... I can’t believe I didn’t get a Mad IIC after spending so much time piloting on in MW2.

your mid/late 90's self would slap you up the backside of the head ...  I'm still proud of taking down the MADIIC's in the Firemoth D for the last JF trial of position.

Since I'm just an amateur collector, I managed to get one of everything for the KS with a BN+ then a SC (sooo glad the 2nd PM opened up when it did, I had funds!).

Digging the Urbie plushie.  Not so much the colors, but I'll learn to live with it.

Marauder IIC look really good. I'll be getting the Clan Heavy Star pack for that alone as it is my favorite assault Mech.

It's everybody's favorite assault mech. Some folks just give you the wrong answer when you ask them. 8)

Funds were limited, there was a prioritization spreadsheet, and it was marginal.

I love Warhammer and Marauder, but the rest aren’t my jam.

Same here.

for me the rhino and supernova are turnoffs in multiples. How many clan wall o' metal mechs does one need?

A second hunchie I could modify to the ATM model, and every faction needs marauders & whammies; these can even proxy for IS ones.
