Would be nice.  I want the White Raven too and I don't even know what it looks like.  I just like the name.

LOL I find it intriguing that it is called "White Raven" but is a Steel Viper mech.

At the very least, I suspect it will take less time before we these mechs than it took to get a mini for the Defiance.

Still holding out for the Liberator, Wildfire, Prometheus and Epimethus here.  ;D

It's right up there with the Shogun never having been used by the DCMS

Maybe it has some kind of put down in the meaning of the name, kind of like the Mad Dog, Wolf Hunter, and Ice Ferret.

You'd think House Davion would have had a Yellow Bird mech for specifically dealing with Dragons.

Will the new Catapult, Griffin, & Commando be the same size as the box set versions?  Or will they be slighting smaller and skinnier like Catalyst's Alpha Strike sets?

To my knowledge it is a Clan Wolf mech that was only mentioned in "Divide and Conquer" book so it would be fairly new.  It was also referred to by the Clans so it may have connections to Clan Snow Raven or Clan Sea Fox depending on the primary configuration.

There is a thread in fanfiction called "interview with a mercenary." The commander wanted to call themselves the Fuzzy Bunnies for for the humiliation factor.

Now the name of the story unless we have a translation problem.  The mech is clearly stated to be a White Raven and a Steel Viper mech.

"Divided We Fall" is the story and set in 3149.  I couldn't find stats for it so I just assumed it was a newer model.  Reread the beginning and it states that it is not an Omni and heavily modified.  My bad.

Well, you had a different name for the story earlier- I know the German stuff sometimes renames things.  Alaric does the internal monologue about it being a 'relic' of another Clan.

Very similar to box set, they are built from same CAD files just parted out for IWM production. There could be some differences due to molding and casting.

I just compared them and they look good.

I will get some images up for the Locust Variants.

Less language error more not checking my facts error. Like any good politician.

Finally got some new xacto blades and finally assembled the Neanderthal and Jupiter 3. Never really been a fan of the exterior ammo belts but at least it wasn’t like the Cyrus where you had to trim them yourself to fit. Both assembled super cleanly.

I was really tired and low on patience so I kept the Shadow Cat III in the blister. Those legs would have sent me into a rage

I felt like the Shadowcat III was pretty easy to assemble.

It’s not bad, no. I was just in no mood for multi-piece chicken walker legs.

Photos of the Locust, Catapult, and Griffin (the last one still in pieces) are up on Facebook and they look really good.

Another thanks to Douglass Hess for the Griffin! Please note...the angle of the mini (it's kind of looking up) makes it look odd. So he posed it next to the Box Set Wolverine for comparison.

So, did the Catapult come with parts for the C3 variant?

Wait, does the Catapult come with two torsos? Since the K2 is supposed to have MGs or does it simply reuse the standard torso?

They look really great though. Maybe the Griffin looks a bit stiff with its legs that way, but still.

Catspult only comes with a sngle torso, and the arm posts are just large enough to hold a small magnet if you drill it out.
