Speck...am I able to use any pledge money I would offer towards my business purchases? If so...I'd fund whole minis myself.

You mean, the discount for the IWM shop?

Will there be a new poll before we work through the last few winners from the last one?

So below is the that we will go with for this round.

Primitive Wolverine (Dak)
Balac VTOL (Dak)
Hellspawn Resculpt (Stinger)
Bellerophon (Dak)
Catapult CPLT-C2 (Dark Age Catapult) (Stinger)
Von Rohrs (Dak)

I'll admit to being strongly biased, since I'd like a Bellerophon to paint, but mostly, I'm just curious. (Sartris might also be hoping for a new sculpt, but he's too cagey for me to be sure  ;) )

No official word for another poll, but next one up is the Von Rohrs or the Bellepheron, considering everything else is pretty much done now.

I am intensely and illogically invested in finishing the battlemech sculpts from 3075 completed (the von rohrs is the last one)

It could be far worse, and you could have this complex with 3055... (Griffin IIC...)

I for one would really like a 3026/3039 Goblin.  Stop looking at me like that.  MY OCD demands it.

the goblin was on the latest poll but didn't garner a ton of support - so at least it's on the radar.

There's so few vehicles left from way back then I'd just love to have them knocked out.  Goblin, Guardian, Ferret, Planetlifter, Engineering Vehicle... I think that's it?

Once we have finished the last two designs from last year we will have a new poll of some kind. depending on how long the Von Rohrs takes to get funded, I want to get the Bellerophon Funding thread up right after that.

Ya know...it's awesome to see that you guys funded the Von Rohrs, Bellerophon, and Black Wolf so fast. That just shows how dedicated this group is.

Speck...did you ever discuss with Mike if I can participate in this (even if it's at a higher level of money due to the resller discount) and apply those funds to purchases I make for my store?

Thanks

How does submitting options for the poll work?

I know it is a bit early, but I want to put this out there and see if it was possible.

I would be very interested in sculpts for the vehicles from Mechwarrior 1st ed. I don't think they would be much to sculpt or produce, but they don't have current canon stats. I would want them to be the standard 'mech-scale. Would the lack of modern stats/record sheets be an impediment?

Believe it or not, Abou, the whole point of me learning to 3D sculpt was to produce those very same vehicles! I got a little sidetracked with the whole Solaris VII 'Mechs, MilitiaMechs, Primitives, Anzu...

One MW1 vehicle is actually completed (the coolest one imo). I didn't get much farther than that. I don't think the lack of stats are a deciding factor against them so we'll see what happens.

There are some really solid fan stats about, which have been made with a variety of rule sets.
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

That is a grey area that I would need to find out about. Will work on that and let you know.

I just read this whole thread and I am still confused.

Why can't I just fund minis myself? 

I have a group that is willing to place an order and in exchange we would like some things sculpted.  Nothing bizarre.

Lets say I order $1300 of stuff from IWM and I ask that the Engineering Vehicle and the Griffin IIC get sculpted. 

Why can't this happen?

Hypothetically, IWM might decide they don't have space in the pipeline for those sculpts.

On the other hand, it's been done successfully before, so you should at least ask.

A number of online exclusive items over the years have suddenly appeared that we’re independently financed. It’s a great thing to do if you were going to drop $800 with iwm anyway.

Exactly!  I figure we are going to drop the coin anyway so why not see if we move the ball down the field by having them add a missing sculpt.

And I am not taking variants, I'm taking things that are just plain missing.
