I would wager more on the end of May. New releases seem to come in the second half of the quarter

Oh, I agree . . . I was expecting May if not June, but my point is since the product is supposed to be out this quarter . . . we cannot get a picture of it?

Wonder who is going to get the first painted one to CamoSpecs.

Swordman more Shadowhawk than the Primitive Shadowhawk could hope to be.  It's plain awesome!!  :D

It's the one of the "First" generation of Battlemechs FedSuns made.  It was used primarily in the early Age of War Davion Civil War, unfortunately on the bad guys side, thus it was shunned by winning side of the FedSuns and survivor examples were shuffled off to the newly formed SLDF.

There primitive model and there was standard tech one which was pretty neat.

I have such an irrational dislike for side by side mounted elbow actuators, especially on mechs with hands (Enforcer III!) but still a must get for me.

Here's my sculpt of the Anzu! Speck cleared it for release. Big image but I'm remembering to fix the width these days...sometimes.

Is the Anzu coming with parts to make both variants?

Par Toutatis...



I'm definitely getting two, and keeping them as Zugs instead of Zujs. But those bits...the missile racks will be perfect for my 3085 Goliath, and odds are the RAC will convince me to finally get working on Schwerer Gustav!

Thank you . . . and yeah, now I have to decide if I want to tell the FLGS to get 2 for me rather than 1 so I can do both variants.  And yeah, that spare RAC will be fun . . .

I've gotten the go ahead to share the Catapult II, but Dak has to go around showing me up with a fancy schmancy image of the Anzu, so I am going to have to generate something tonight so I don't look like slacker.

Thanks Dak :P :D

Since the catapult is getting a dark age face lift...

What about the JL-1/2 Raider?  For some reason I think this mech is cool...

I doubt the Viking IIC will see a new mini since it appears to be outwardly identical to the stock Viking.

Well, i wouldn't say it's identical and if it does make it, it would make for a great proxy.
