I'm still hoping for a Gunslinger resculpt that I can throw money at.

Going to be selective with them in the next suggestion thread if any have interest.

Uh, Speck, if the Griffin IIC does happen, uh, dibs.

Well only okay art to use is the reseen version which has one mini done already for it, so variants are open. If you are asking about the original IIC art the answer is no for a mini.

Are QuadVees on the table in the futre? I am not interested in the whole line, but the Notos and Boreas, as omnis, are desirable
 

I am going to add to next suggestion thread as well.

I'm asking  :thumbsup:

Reach out to me in PM directly to discuss this.

Is there a general idea of when we should expect to see a new suggestion thread? I'm not always super-dilligent about keeping up with the IWM sub-forum, and I wouldn't want to miss it.

Does anyone have a link to the thread/post with the list of units without miniatures? I know one was made, but I’m having trouble digging it up with the search function.

I'm not the best at using search, but I couldn't find it. Maybe a casualty of the last hacker raid? I should be sticky IMO.
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.

You posted the Prototypes vehicles twice instead of the 3145/3150 vees.

So I did!

Basically the answer is “pretty much all of them lack minis”

I need a Buster, a Daedalus, and a Harvester Ant industrial mech for my Brotherhood of Fianna force.
I notice that the VA got left out of the missing minis list...

I would very much like to see the 3026 Ferret get a sculpt, but it seems like a likely low priority.

Can we still get a Banshee with the parts for the S? For some reason, I thought that was discontinued because the left arm was based on the Warhammer. Maybe a replacement arm can be sculpted using the new classic Warhammer arm.

You could do a new sculpt based off the art in TRO: SW, but I don't think it is a particularly good example of the 'mech. A new parts sprue as Beachhead mentioned with the hexagonal SRM-6 launcher, arm lasers, and left arm PPC would work.

EDIT: funnily enough, the original stats don't have lasers in the arm.

I suppose a version of the 'mech that can do the 3E, 3S, and 5S variants would be interesting. But that would be a lot of parts.

We've already got multiple 3E sculpts.  Any new Banshee sculpts should be based on the 3S, 5S, or one of the more resent models that don't have art, like the 8S or 9S.

I'd love a 9S, even if it'd almost certainly be an Online Exclusive.

I imagine with CAD it wouldn't be too hard to do all of them almost like an omnimech. Separate arms would allow easy access to the side torsos, which would then allow basically a plug-n-play of weapons combinations.

1 PPC, 2 PPC, LB-X and more!

But I digress. I'm honestly just interested in the sprue. When the thread opens for suggestions, I am more interested in the MW1st support vehicles than a whole new Banshee.

Imagine how I feel?

I just moved and the movers did a number on my minis; every. Single. 3S. Was a casualty. Left me scooping up parts to dump into a box and hoping it is all there later.

Thats actually not dissimilar to what I used.

Then they stored and transported them on their ends.

The Klondike Imp's dome is a little out of control, but it's still good art.
