Okay, it's blockier and the machine guns are located both on the outer sides of the legs instead of two outer, two inner.  Still pretty close.

Anyone know if the Defender is getting a sculpt?

At this time, there has been no announcement, and it is not on the pending releases either, so I'd have to guess no. It may be possible in the Fan Financing if it comes up!

They've been decided and are being worked on.  ;)

Something light, and a couple heavy from me. You don't want to get into the hint game with me though, I've built up a rep for being extremely vague even while giving accurate hints. When I hit on a way to hint while being able to have it point in multiple directions, it's even more fun. For me.  >:D

Talked to Speck, yeah it would have to be Fan Financed to get done anytime soon. So no Defender anytime soon then.

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

I would love the Raider too :)

Oh I would love the Raider. I've had a soft spot for militia mechs and the likes since the Quasit in TRO3075.

Any hint about new fan financing?  IIRC it's been quite a while since the last one so I'm ready to throw some more money at IWM.  ;)

Wow, I haven been around as much as I used to and I evidently missed all four of those.  The 2017 in the titles did leave me to believe their had not been any new ones this year.  :(

   I wouldn't mind seeing a Merlin resculpt some day... it's supposed to be a fairly common heavy mech and a favorite among Mercs, I would like to see a better looking version eventually, then I can field them without feeling bad about the ugly minis on the table... 😂

There's a number of mechs from that era that could use a resculpt.

The Gunslinger, Lineholder, Penetrator, Kingfisher, Phantom... heck, pretty much everything from 3055 and 3058 that hasn't already gotten a resculpt.
