Offhand, I would say the Aesir/Vanir (s) are slightly larger than an Overlord C:
http://ironwindmetals.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=3820 . Looking at the art its kind of like a bigger Overlord C with the nose cut off.  Its mass is listed as 18,000 tons...so big...The Excalibur (IS) at 16,000 tons is the closest reference i can find, size wise.

The Isegrim I would say is probably more along the lines of the Leopard but bulked out a bit; I don't get the impression that it is nearly as big as the Aesir/Vanir. It has a mass of 8,500 tons, so smaller than an Arondight (12,000).

Does that help at all?

I can make some estimates. But there is no fixed scale for AT2, and a linear scale is impractical (see Castrum).

Aesir/Vanir (slightly larger than Overlord C)
Length: 35mm

Isegrim (bulked out Broadsword)
Length: 25mm

Well, I didn't see a way of starting a new thread so I'll just post in this one.

HEAR YE! HEAR YE!  I need to announce to you all that I'm stepping down as the Sculptor for the Fan Financing 2.0 and the Bakeneko will be my last Mech.  As you may have gathered, I have taken a full time position at a local jewelry store as a custom jewelry designer and will no longer able to sculpt Battletech Mechs and expect to have something resembling a life.  I am naming David Summers as my successor, I'm sure you all know the name and the excellent quality of his sculpting work.  I have discussed this with and gotten approval from Mike Noe at IWM so please give Dave a bit o' time to get settled in and get going.  I know he will do right by you as I have tried to.  Thanks for all of your support, enthusiasm and kind words about my work, it's been fun working with/for you all! 

Cheers!

Mr H, you will always hold a very, very special place in my heart for the two Leviathan "maxis" you did for the GenCon launch.

That apart, though, your work on BT minis has been very much appreciated. Good luck in the salaried lane!

B-3, you have done some great work for us. I'm sure Dave will as well.

And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Good luck.
I will miss your skills. Yes, Dave is good. But I have to admit, I love the way your minis are set up for construction. They fit together like Legos.
The Ares minis could have been a real pain in the ass, but you made them the easiest minis I have ever assembled and still some of the most versatile without having to resort to cutting them.

Best of luck in the wild world of jewelry! If you don't mind saying, what store are you working at? I end up in Dayton for work occasionally and my wife does enjoy sparkly things!

Is someone else doing the orthos?
Why not Zoidberg?

Orthos were requested by B-3 because of his sculpting style, to help with accuracy.  2D images don't always translate into 3D well. Unless Dave has changed his style, he doesn't normally use orthos.

A bit of a daft question for those of you more used to the whole redeeming vouchers process. My cart shows the voucher balance, but doesn't reduce the amount to pay?

Can anyone give me a hand?

When you are at check out on the payment page, you select which payment method you want to use (paypal or Credit card) and then also select the Gift Voucher option. If you spend less then gift voucher it will reduce your balance and if you spend more, the different is paid for by which payment method you select.

I doubt that since he does not have a forum account. After Gen Con will post update for the Fan Finance program with how we will proceed.

There is an option listed that should allow you to deduct the amount from the voucher or credit.  It will show up on a lower line than Pay Pal/Credit card in the payment option fields.  I believe it states Gift Vouchers.  Make certain you have also used the redeem feature to enter your code too.

As much as I'd like to see the next round get started, the Bakeneko hasn't been completed yet. It's still up to Speck though.

Barring unforeseen circumstances beyond my control, I gleefully anticipate the completion of the Baconecho on Tuesday morning about 2am.
