Speck, since it was tied for 3rd, is the Tribune being considered for fan funding? I'd do $50.

Most likely. Working on getting a variety of in process item done before opening another funding thread.

Hope some day the Narukami NK-1C will see light of day.

If you wait until mid or late May, odds are better that I'll be able to jump in on the Tribune.

I will be eagerly awaiting the Pixiu Heavy Tank funding thread.

Is there any chance at all that the mech scale Centurion and Hellcat will make it onto anyone's sculpting list? The victors of this pole can hardly be called the definitive winners. And given the fairly even distribution of votes cast it looks like you'll get some funding interest (myself included). It's just been far too long since we got anything aero-related in the form of a mech scale fighter or warship.
"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."

I’d throw money at the centurion and hellcat. I need a pair of each to round out my mercenary force’s aerospace unit

If you are willing to fund it yourself, or can organize full funding, PM speck. Things have been done that weren't poll-based, but it is up to IWM if/when they choose to put the time towards those projects. None of these are going to be money-makers for IWM, and will take some time away from other work in the shop, which is part of why the number of projects is limited, even if the funding is there.

This is what we were voting on in the first place, no? My impression is that we voted on what projects would be opened for fan funding (I have no idea when that will take place since this pole was for 2018, and we haven't seen any of them opened yet despite being mid way through 2019), this process would seem fairly meaningless if they were easily ignored by a personal PM to speck. Hence why I was asking publicly if any of the near-winners might see funding options available.

New Funding is on hold until queue is cleared up. It’s getting there but some got behind due to sculptor having to get a distro release done first. Hope to have updates soon.
