I think they need a separate thread, so that the people that want the Resculpts can let B-3 know that they think is "Wrong" with the current sculpt.  Otherwise we'll have another round of crying and belly-aching about it being "wrong" all over again.   :-X
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.

How about putting some details on the sprues? Some past minis have had flat missile launcher-looking bits sculpted right on the sprues. I'd also love to see some I-beams and other basic geometric shapes (cylinders, triangular prisms, etc) form the basis of the sprue, instead of the flat piece of pewter, so they could be used in more creative basing. Not sure how much work that would entail...

Looks like the primitives won. Well I guess I got to proxy more protomechs and power armor for my Celerity(s) for a while longer.

I know I went for a primitive so we could have a stand in for unseens pre 3050 (or if we just don';t like reseens), but I wish there were a few more new units than variants and resculpts.

I see why the Flashman might need a resculpt, but what was wrong with the highlander mini, and don't we already have a couple Black Knight variants we can kitbash with?

I think they need a separate thread, so that the people that want the Resculpts can let B-3 know that they think is "Wrong" with the current sculpt.  Otherwise we'll have another round of crying and belly-aching about it being "wrong" all over again.   :-X
I don't think anyone's ever going to be happy.  The original art is kinda meh and any new versions had to follow it for the most part, and thus also don't have an appealing shape, so I think any flashman mini is going to be ugly.

It is the quad MG style AMS. I recently worked on an early run mini of it. Details were much clearer on it than other more recently produced ones.

Really? Now that is interesting.

Quick Questions.

1.  Those APC's,  are those the light 10 Ton Models originally from 3026, Or the Larger 3060 Models?
  I'm thinking Lighter but I want to clarify.

2.  Has there never been a Goblin mini before?
  It doesn't say re-sculpt on it but I thought there was one.

So if I understand it correctly the top six move on, those being

Primitive Rifleman RFL-1N XTRO Primitives IV      40 (9.2%)
Armored Personnel Carriers (Tracked, Wheeled, Hover)   26 (6%)
Primitive Griffin GRF-1A XTRO Primitives IV              25 (5.8%)
Highlander HGN-732 resculpt TRO 3050U         25 (5.8%)
Black Knight “Red Reaper” XTRO Most Wanted      24 (5.5%)
Flashman resculpt TRO 3025 (revised) /3039 / 3050U   24 (5.5%)

And of those the top two will be up for people to put money towards, when one of them get the money then the next on the list goes up for people to put money towards. Is that correct? If so how do you determine what goes up next as after the first two number three and four are tied, same with five and six?

There is a Goblin mini, yes. It's based on the 3058 art, the one in the poll is from 3039.

As soon as the first one gets done, the third one gets opened up so there is a steady flow.

Works for me, means I have to wait for the Flashman but them's the breaks.

Well, the "Red Reaper" is the only one I voted for so I'll certainly go in for that.  I may go in for the two Primitives, too, but I'm just not interested in the others.   I still hope they are popular with other players and this KS is a sucess so we will see more.
