I wasn't able to find a CBT image of the Mining Mech MKII. So nobody else has to dig, here's the WizKids minis of it (standard and mod).

I think that is the last MWDA industrial like that, since a few others where done years ago.

The top three are all Battlemechs. I thought you people were supposed to be interesting!

I must agree with Weirdo, I find it sad to see the workmechs going out.  :'(
I always felt FF should be for things that are less likely to see play like workmechs or XTRO/unique units. Still, if peoples want them, those big mechs should be done.

I keep hoping for the workmechs. My Brotherhood of Fianna force needs the Daedalus, Buster, and Harvester Ant.

I want a mini of the Emperor's new look very much, so I voted for that.

Then I voted for the poor, unloved, Buster.  :-\

It will likely take some militarized art for them to get some real support.

Possibly. The Raider isn't doing all that much better.

I don't think I'm particularly surprised at the relative popularity of battlemechs over their industrial cousins, after all, they are the top-billed stars of the show, but I can understand the disappointment.

Unfortunately, with four industrial mechs splitting the vote, we’re working against our own interests.  Between the four we have enough votes to move the Raider into the top three with ease.

Just sayin’.

I think he's suggesting that people could change their votes to support the one Industrial to rule them all.
