It is done, it got behind but is in process of getting printed so molding can happen.

NICE!

Was that going to have multiple turret options?

Can we get a look at the Scourge mini?  How many pieces?  The IWM site is down while looking tonight.

When are we going to see a KS to upgrade IW Metals to IW Miniatures?

imho: IWM needs to be in the Resin /3D printed miniature market as well.
1. Let's Hope for NEVER.

2. In MY Opinion, IWM needs to stay Metal Only, or at the very least have Metal minis alongside any resin minis.
To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO  room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object.

Been so busy, I don't have one open yet, but here's a pic of the blister. IWM won't have it on their site for about a month. They allow retailers to sell them during that time unencumbered.

Yeah, which makes the '4 pieces' thing a bit off.

Still looks pretty good, easy to assemble . . . my Regulans will be happy to see it donating gauss slugs to Oriente mechs.

A sprue full of parts is one piece. 2 sprues + 2 separate pieces = 4 pieces.

No, when it comes to minis and I ask how many pieces, its how many parts need to be stuck together to get the mini.  I know I am not the only one who buys based on 'low' number of parts . . . though that has eased the last few years after the Phoenix insanity.

Best I can do for now, although it's only 4 sprues, all of the blisters are giving me fits on trying to get a good shot...but I did get one of the weapons sprue!

I have to get one thoses, despite me no longer getting minis.  I want mod it so it's pulling a mech-scale golf bag on two wheels, with all those extra hand-held weapons.

Speck, any chance that we could get the Arrow IV launcher from the newish Regulator put into the scrapyard for separate purchase?

Someone asked for a Scourge?  You do have to drill out the arm sockets on the body for a better fit.  The arms are ball and socket, but the socket on the body isn't deep enough for a good fit.  Its flat.

Legs fit to a waist bit, socket style again.  It could benefit from pinning.

The arms on mine fit just fine, but the legs only attached at an angle that makes the mini lean back slightly.

Which is my problem- the flanges of armor plate around the socket/ball on both pieces.  What did you do?

I've trimmed the armor plate back slightly so that it wasnt leaning back so far.

Posed the mini so it looks like it's aiming at something above itself.
