Sorry for the delay, I had to get things finalized. But below are three BA that will be coming later this year.

Speck...what ever happened with the Black Wolf that was somewhere named in Fan Financing? I remember it coming in VERY close to beating out one of the mechs that did get in.

I forgot about that, was in the 2016 poll. I can see about creating a funding thread down the road if people are interested in funding it.

Very interested in funding it! I know a lot of Wolf fans are looking for it and are resorting to scavenging the 1 MWDA release it was in for it!

I'm embarrassed to ask-- what is this Black Wolf you speak of? And, why do I not know about it?? ???

Heavy battlesuit. 3145. Artillery doesn't auto-kill it. You can guess who uses it. :)

Close! They do build them, but don't use them. The vast majority are stockpiled(the real reason they hollowed out Niops IX), and the only ones we've seen are the tiny trickle they extort circuitously to the Davion Mechwarrior Cabal. :D

Oh please make Black Wolfs!  I hate having to stand-in these guys, and I use them almost every game.

there was a clix model but it was at the end of the run (exclusively?) in the WD Gamma Regiment Action Pack so they're pretty tough to come by

Awesome! I could put all three to use.

And please get back to us on that Black Wolf funding thread. I have money to throw at that sculpt.
"Well, I do, Marcus, and rule number one of the MAC has always been that the man with the plan leads. If we get shot up, I'm the first one to get my ticket punched. There are no flags in the MAC."
"And there never will be," Barton said, nodding his head in agreement.

"You guys are facing a freaking Shadow Division! These guys have strict policies against playing fair!"

"I don’t care. Kill them. I planned the defense so I know it will work. If they claim otherwise, they’re cowards. Any step back is a betrayal of me, and saying they don’t have enough men is just an excuse for incompetence and disloyalty. Tell the Krypteia to do it if you’re too soft but get it done." -Emperor Stefan Ukris Amaris I

Neat!! especially excited about the leonidas. If fan funding is up again (i'm still a bit out of the loop there) i would love to try and get the GD infiltrator done up; is this a possibility?
"Warriors, not war machines, are the backbone of the Hell's Horses. While others worship the BattleMech as the ultimate weapon, the men and women of this Clan see even this awesome piece of technology as the tool it is. We have held to this philosophy since the days of our first Khan, who knew that the value of the common soldier far outstripped the brute force of the BattleMech. It is one reason our Clan possesses fewer mechs than most, and has led many to underestimate our fierceness and courage. Our survival against all challengers when others have fallen proves the folly of such arrogance, and testifies to the wisdom of our founders."

The Swordsman has heard your cries, the Swordsman approaches! But he’s not here yet. And Speck said I can’t show my Anzu sculpt yet either. He probably approaches too.

I would gladly support the funding of the Black Wolf BA.  After all, the Wolves will be ruling Terra in short order.

I would wager more on the end of May. New releases seem to come in the second half of the quarter
