Yeah. It's slightly tilted back with its arms raise, so it looks like it's looking and aiming at something uphill.

Thanks, I forgot you had posted that picture of a Scourge leaning into the stiff wind of infantry rifle fire.

Based on MWDA Shadow Cat, new art was generated and stats. Not sure what book the art will be in.

I already loved the look of the original model (especially the Loose artwork). This design just cements that love. I can even make my own personal configuration I had with the original (although I either have to switch the Streak-4 for standard SRM’s or the Angel ECM Suite for a standard one).

There may not be anything new until they redo the store after the new year.

Their redoing the store? I hope works out okay. I hate to wait too long for new stuff.

Just downloaded the Shadow Cat III sheets and I have to say it's a solid improvement over the original and the bc isn't insane.  I will likely give all three versions a shot.

Just got my Jupiter 3 and Shadow Cat III an hour ago.  Almost have the Jupiter put together: very nice looking, so much better than the original.  Going to put the Shadow Cat III together next.

I will say that the Jup's ammo feed pieces threw me off for a bit until I flipped the arms over and saw where they attach.

Not sure if I said already, but we also created the parts for A & B variants of Shadow Cat III that will release in 2020.

My only issue with the mini is just how huge the legs are. They seem oversized for the body and arms.

Just a FYI, the next print run of the Battletech: Beginner Box set has updated the expiration date of the coupon code for the three different Metal Starter sets. The coupon is now good until 12/31/2021.

Speck...some places like my shop still have some of the box sets still in stock. Being that IWM is extending the coupon out till 12/31/2020...will these still be good as well?

I figure it's a yes but I dont want to say so without actual confirmation.

Speck,
  Did those people with store credits have to write down their balances, or did you take care of it?
