I missed out last time ;) and good job to the faster members, but this time I'll make up for it and pledge $100
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.

Thanks Dak!
I'm in for $100 for now, but only because I'd want to give others a chance to throw some in too ;)
I'll cover any balance if this goes for more than a week.

By my count, that's $550 in the first ~12 hours.

Not bad.  8)

PM received, and payment sent.

@Dak:
Can you provide any guidance for how this thing will be scaled? The 'mech has a pretty chunky/bulky design, like a lot of primitives, but it is also only 60 tons. It's hard for me to visualize how it will look on he hex base, standing next to other 'mechs.

Stinger has been my scaling guy. We did a 3D printed prototype last year to mess around with the scale on this, here's what we aimed at:



I think that's pretty close for where I want it. Like you say, the aesthetic of the primitives has generally been bulky and a bit oversized (which is more or less compatible with the relevant lore on them). The height is about 42mm but I agree that's not a good guide for this bulky 'Mech. (Note that hexbase on the Bellerophon is a Fanjoy creation and not the IWM base, it's about 2mm less in overall diameter).

Let me know what you guys think.

I doubt there ever will be an "ideal", but that looks pretty good. Thanks!

(In my perfect Universe, I'd probably shrink it another ~2mm shorter, But I'm so happy with the sculpt, I'm not going to complain at all when it releases.  :thumbsup: )
