Damnit B-3, you just might have made another mini that I like well enough to buy, despite not being impressed with the artwork.   :P   O0  I didn't care for the Warwolf art either, but after seeing the mini at Gen Con (at the IWM booth) the year it came out, I had to buy a pair of them.  THEN I bought one from the CSO Diorama that year also.   ::)   ;D


This is yet MORE Amazing work from you!   [applause]  [applause]  [applause]

I DEFINITELY Like your work Sir!  O0


My Problem now is, do I buy the mini once it is released, or do I wait until some CSO Artist paints one and offers it for sale, and try to buy THAT one?   :-\  I'm NOT a painter myself, so if I can't buy one pre-painted I'll have to commission someone to paint it for me.  :-[

Been a while since the last CSO update...since they updated the front end, looks like...
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.
     
A.E. Housman

Anyone know the turn-around time on this mini? i.e.: when we'd be able to buy some copies of it?

I would look through the Highlander and Flashman threads to see when sculpting was done. They just got added to the store recently and the date is typically on the IWM product page.

Ahh. So around 4-6 months, looks like.

At this point we'll probably know once IWM updates its release schedule page on its website.
Why not Zoidberg?

I have no further information to provide an update with, so we will have to patiently wait for speck to find some time to provide us an update.

As noted above, the other Fan Fundication efforts have generally taken 4-6 months to go into production after the master sculpt has been approved by the QCC.

I will note that we are fast approaching convention season in the US, with IWM due to make appearances at Origins in June, Historicon in July and Gencon in August which means that the molding and production rooms at IWM are probably working overtime as they ramp up production to support both IWM and other companies that IWM do contract work for in preparation for having fully stocked convention booths plus convention limited editions and other goodies.

Please be patient, we may be pleasantly surprised in the Dragoon becomes available at a convention special like the fan-funded Primitive Rifleman was previously. However, this is all speculation on my part as I am not an IWM insider. In the interests of disclosure, I note that I do have a retailer account with IWM and have found them to be a honest and trustworthy supplier to deal with. I correspond with Melissa semi-regularly when we have the time to chat and send IWM the occasional care package to help them through the silly seasons.

Sounds to me like it could be available at Historicon or Gen Con, if they push it.   O0

Considering I don't live near either, that isn't helpful to me.

Make friends with people that ARE going.   8)


If nothing else, you'd have to wait another month or two after GC, so that's not TOO bad.  I can't believe it's the case where you HAVE to have at least ONE, or you'll LITERALLY die.   :D

When I have a update about the release I will post about it. Don't want to get hopes up by saying anything now until I know for sure.

I'm not sure why people who attend GenCon or any convention receive the minis before the folks who funded them. Just hoping that's not the case.

Because logistics. Also, there was never any agreement that I remember seeing where fundicators were guaranteed first chance to purchase. Their funds only guaranteed that the miniature would be made. IWM decides how and when to sell the minis. We're not talking about a limited release that you will miss out on if you don't get first crack at it.

That's very true. There certainly was no guarantee of that. Oh well. First and last time, as they say.

I believe what Cache has written is the case.

I do run a small online business selling BT minis in my spare time and I have thought about trying to solve that logistical problem on behalf of IWM by offering to assist fundicators get as early as possible (ie when it becomes available to ship to retailers) access to the fan fundicated miniatures. Unfortunately, as I am Australia-based and the cost of international shipping may make it cost-prohibitive for the fundicators who are not here in Australia  :'(

I wouldn't mind having the equipment to help them make the stuff, or at least the backlog for those not ordering for the various cons. Would give me something interesting to do during the summer while the kids are with their mother.

With the Dragoon becoming available now as miniature, i wonder if i just missed the official recordsheets for the many variants or if they still do not exist.

the only variants we have record sheets for are the original AEM-01 and the -05C from TP: Epsilon Eridani. The -02, -03, and -04 all lack BV on the MUL, which means no record sheet exists in the wild.

Why are record sheets necessary? The description tells you the approximate locations of the weaponry. Other than the order of the weapons and structural slots, they don't have any special purpose.
