The Dasher II and Dasher II 2 are basically identical in outward appearance.

I definitely want an Anzu and a Xanthos. The Mongoose also tempts me.

I also feel like Speck has been stepping up his photography game lately.  :thumbsup:

My dad the other year surprised me with a nice DSLR digital camera for Christmas and then earlier this year I got a cheaper macro lens. Still working on getting things right.

It's much appreciated from my end.

Some of the older IWM product images are.... less than fully helpful.

Most of these get replaced when CSO paints it (for battlemech). The other non-BT there a many that I would love to have new images for.

This news makes me unreasonably happy. Is the Tomahawk in any particular configuration?

Because it's not noted as such, and as in keeping with previous Con release packs, it will most likely be the "currently available" Prime sculpt...but will wait for Speck to give the official word.

Good point...didn't even realize that, I was too busy trying to figure out where to stick that Shadow Hawk in my forces since every house except Liao has one, and I'm not giving it to them. Guess she's going to go to Amaris!

It looks good, just a few changes from the 2H.

I'm also on the list of people very excited for this one.  What kind of changes are we talking?

Will there be a non-jumper version following it soon? after?

If there isn't, you typically don't need to mount the jump jet plumes...so then it becomes a walking version.

The plumes were attached to the enforcer iii’s feet

It wasn’t that hard to cut them off and the evidence is barely evident because the scars are near the hex base

Could have sworn those weren't attached...but I'd have to check my blister.

Larger AC, medium laser on other arm, and torso missile launcher changes to two holes for streak srm2. Plus the jumping part and some adjustments to pose.

Will there be a non-jumper version following it soon? after?

That is the plan.

Yes they were attached on that LE.

Alex...that was already answered earlier...

Nope, not until an official okay is given and no idea when that will be.

What he said -
Because it's a Sea Fox mech.

Plus we wanted to go with more pure Wolf Empire mechs that are unique to them.
