Hi everybody! 

I just wanted to check in and let you know I'm not dead.  I'm feeling mostly dead but not completely dead.  My new job had been steadily consuming my soul and choking the life from my body, mostly because I have to wear a tie...UGH!  Anyhoo, I have been working on this Mech as much as time has permitted.  Please disregard the pewter parts protruding from the bottom of the torso they are just what's left of the Mech I used as the armature.



The leg and hips are mostly done the torso is pretty far along the arms heed and jet pack are pretty far along just need a bit o detailing. 

Cheers!

That's looking awesome.

B-3, have you ever done a write-up of your sculpting process?  I'm super curious how you're getting such clean and crisp details.

Very Interesting. I think this one is going to work out nicely!

Laid on their side like that, the legs look pretty big compared to the arms and torso, but I'm guessing they are fairly narrow from the front. Regardless, the detailing looks nice and they do match up well with the art. So in short, looking good!

What's the status on this sculpt?
Why not Zoidberg?

I finally got the time to sit down at my workbench and sculpt on this one!  It's going well so far, I hope to be done with it tomorrow...

Thanks for the update Berhle, hopefully the new job is settling down and no longer consuming so much of your soul.

My new job is getting busier the closer we get to the holidays, our custom design department (three people) produced 45 custom jobs last month and we're looking at 60 this month...😰 it's pretty challenging but exciting work and the toys are awesome in the workshop!

Always good to be busy than to be not busy  :)

That is an impressive throughput of custom designed jewelry for a small workshop. Hopefully when thinks slow down a bit after the holidays you might find some time to do some more Battletech commissions for IWM in the new year.

OK, down to a few minor details and this one is in the bag!  I still need to finish the waist and shoulder joints, the attachment points for the jet packs and mold the leg and jet pack and cast and make left and right ones.  :D

I love that making a mold and casting a leg is a minor detail.

On a serious note, your joints are easy to work with, give an impressive range of motion, and are easy to assemble. As a customer I appreciate that, as an amateur I want to emulate that.

I think that looks great!
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Looks good.

Why do I have this terrible desire to buy one when it becomes available and paint a devil and an angel, one on each shoulder . . .

Worth the wait. Nicely done!

I think I would like to see one with the angel and devil on each shoulder.

I think that they are waiting for the 2017 Quarter Releases announcement.

If you mean the Bakeneko...you're correct.

If you mean the announcement of the Q1 2017 minis...Speck just said it yesterday in a post finally and will be updating the release schedule on their website soon.

Just a FYI, this mini is now for sale. I figured everyone waited long enough for it so I am posting it now for sale. Image will be up on the store soon.
