Current Funding amount is $800.00 and is funded.

GENERAL NOTE: The mech is locked in, no extra variant parts.

Thanks Dak!
I'm in for $100 for now, but only because I'd want to give others a chance to throw some in too ;)
I'll cover any balance if this goes for more than a week.

PM received, and payment sent.

@Dak:
Can you provide any guidance for how this thing will be scaled? The 'mech has a pretty chunky/bulky design, like a lot of primitives, but it is also only 60 tons. It's hard for me to visualize how it will look on he hex base, standing next to other 'mechs.

Thanks Speck.

Stinger has been my scaling guy. We did a 3D printed prototype last year to mess around with the scale on this, here's what we aimed at:

(https://i.imgur.com/xfrXQoO.jpg)

I think that's pretty close for where I want it. Like you say, the aesthetic of the primitives has generally been bulky and a bit oversized (which is more or less compatible with the relevant lore on them). The height is about 42mm but I agree that's not a good guide for this bulky 'Mech. (Note that hexbase on the Bellerophon is a Fanjoy creation and not the IWM base, it's about 2mm less in overall diameter).

Let me know what you guys think.

I doubt there ever will be an "ideal", but that looks pretty good. Thanks!

(In my perfect Universe, I'd probably shrink it another ~2mm shorter, But I'm so happy with the sculpt, I'm not going to complain at all when it releases.  :thumbsup: )
