Awesome. It makes me want to get one and start painting a Clan Wolf force.

Same. There's something attractive about it in design and in stats.

For some reason, the first description that popped into my head was "cute."   ???

Meh, I might just pick up a few! Excellent job.

The legs are looking rather wiry in that photo in comparison to the art.  Will reserve full judgment till I get my own model.

It looks pretty. It has a lot of details. Even now it looks good, I hope to see painted (or, even better, in my own hands [drool] [drool]).

Shockatime, thanks for posting it. Did you have any issue with mold lines, flash or misalignments?

Thank you in advance!

it looks like a cauldron born and a Mad Cat Mk II had sex, and this was the disgusting bastard offspring of that unholy union...

I LIKE IT! [rockon]

as far as the legs looking spindly, I would have to see it next to another assault mech mini, but if the legs are thinner it was probably a consolation made to keep it in the semi agreed upon scale

I think it just looks like the legs are a bit thin, because of the photograph. From the current angle the torso looks extremely wide, due to the left arm blocking the way, making the legs seem thin.
From a frontal angle it should look more fitting.

I haven't been able to buy one yet (unfortunately) so I'm not sure.

The legs actually seem fine, at least to me. in the art the legs aren't that beefy in any case.

BTW the picture is just from IWM so you can go check it out there, plus the pics for the Koschei and Winson (both look unreal as well) are also up.

What's the size like? At a glance it looks comparable in size and bulk to a Mad Cat Mk.II, but I'm quite curious to know what it ended up being like.

The gaming budget is on hold for a while, but this might have to be a new treat to work on later this year, for sure.

Koschei looks spot on from the photo there.

The Night wolf, not so much.  The art of the night wolf definitely represents it having legs quite a bit thicker than what we see in the preview and taper off into its feet quite a bit more drastically.  Take a look.



Again it could just be the photo but I doubt anyone's "photo-fu" skills are so bad they start refracting light..

Believe me, it is possible... that's why I don't take pictures of my miniatures anymore.

But I would prefer it, if IWM would provide us with pictures from multiple angles. Front, side and rear. Would make it easier to get a real opinion.

I know, but not all customers know that and so they are not able to see the "advanced" pictures.

Not to step on anybody's toes, but seeing the pic Shocka posted, I went and blackened one and did a comparison to the only handy assault I had. Here are some quick shots, and to answer some questions, no misalignment at all, and mold lines while present are not that major. Sorry I didn't have time to assemble it. I've been a bit pre-occupied with my week old daughter. But these shots should give a decent idea of what everything looks like in addition to the previously posted pic.

I look forward to seeing what the Camospecs guys will do with it, as I know my limited painting abilities will not do it justice at all.

Thanks for the photos GhostBear O0

Seeing it like that I honestly think it looks even better, IMO.

No problem Shocka, I was really hoping for the camospecs pictures to go up first. It's just when there is one picture out there that doesn't really do the piece it's necessary justice, I feel like I should do something if I can.

Having seen IWM assembled one blackened last weekend I was really pleased with how it turned out.

Heh, I called that scale about perfectly, didn't I?  :D

Looks great, might have to try to shoehorn that one into the budget somewhere one of these days. I can stand to skip a meal somewhere ;)

Awesome, thanks for the pics.

Would it be possible to get another shot of the arms?  I'm curious to see whether the circular joints have been sculpted or done away with for simplicity's sake.

The legs are definitely looking a bit better from that angle, but some GS and some panel lining wouldn't hurt.

Baby is fine, just your regular newborn distractions. It's a bit harder to get into the basement to access my workshop than usual when trying to take care of her while my wife is job hunting.

And I completely understand getting distracted by the new shiny things.
