Miniature of the Fortnight #61: Rifleman IIC
« on: 29 January 2019, 22:21:59 »
The Rifleman IIC is one of the first generation of IIC 'Mechs hailing from Technical Readout: 3055.  With art provided by Victor Musical Industries, it looked like a more modern successor to the venerable Rifleman.  Of course, that same art led it to becoming Unseen, and then Reseen, and maybe someday (but probably not anytime soon) Classic.  If you'd like to read about how to use it in game, please see its 'Mech of the Week article.

This 'Mech has three sculpts, the Unseen, the Reseen, and a limited edition:
  • The original unseen sculpt (20-791).
  • The Reseen sculpt, for the Rifleman IIC 3 variant (20-231).
  • A limited edition sculpt of the Rifleman IIC 8 jumping (RFLIICLTD-11).  (Unlike some of the limited edition minis, this one isn't currently available from IWM.)
If you have any of these 'Mechs painted, please share pictures.  We'd love to see them!

Thank you for reading!  And especially thank you to those who post pictures!

Our next two fortnights will be:
  • Inner Sphere (2/11): Trebuchet
  • Clan (2/25): Phoenix Hawk IIC

I have one of the reseen sculpt.  I was trying to do Clan Cloud Cobra, Zeta Galaxy colors, but the gray was lighter than I planned.  Live and learn. :)

Looks like a tightrope walker or a dancer, it is so elegant looking!

Thank you. You imagine that this miniature was pinned in the torso and arms but I never glued it in 30 years.
