Matar
LB-X carrier

I'd have suggested an AC/2 Carrier, but I don't think any artwork exists.

I think there is an AC/2 carrier in that photo.  It is from the side, but otherwise obscured.

Does the KGC-009 not count for an MWO King Crab? Or is there another pattern, yet?
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.

That was a Dark Age sculpt.  Pretty sure any MWO requests are off the table as well.

LB-X / AC/2 Carrier (2)

Just to be clear those are two different and distinct pieces of art and units.  The LB-X carrier is from one of the Liberation of Terra books and the AC/2 carrier is 3039

For the AC/2 carrier, would it be out of the realm of possibility to just sculpt a new turret for the SRM/LRM carrier body?

In my opinion some of the primary problems with the existing Carriers is that they are low detail & random line art/miniatures.
The best approach would likely be to make a hybrid body from LB-X (detailing) & AC2 (general shape) art, and then have two possible turrets.
But that would fall into the resculpt zone....

I would love a version of the MW1 Heavy Transport sans load (or with different possible loads).  Something with enough space to to throw on a bin or two from a J-27.

I'm also a huge fan of the Harvester Ant, especially the civil version.

I wasn’t exactly sure where MWO requests fell. I tried to suggest King Crab variants that currently don’t have models but I’d like to see the MWO styling (like what’s coming in the new box set). If that’s a problem for one reason or another, please let me know and I’ll swap out for something on the list of ‘mechs posted in the other thread.

While I’m clarifying what’s allowed, is “Gausszilla” something I could request?

The MWO Victor and Locust already have been put in mini form, but as the Lu Wei Bing and the Gun I believe.  IWM isn't allowed to directly use the art i believe as those designs are specific to MWO and would need a whole new license agreement to be used.

Safer to request designs not already produced in mini form.

To expand on what Scotty said: I won’t pretend to know all the details, but the general rule for making minis is that Catalyst must have published art of some version of the unit in question, so that the mini can be based on said art. The new locust, gún, and lu wei bing all have art that appeared in official Catalyst products. None of them were based on MWO art.

However, the lead concept artist for MWO has done contract art for Catalyst in the past, and some of his designs look similar for both companies. He did the Lu Wei bing, which shares a lot of elements with what he did for the MWO Victor. The Gún was his art, but the new locust about to come out in the box set is based on work from a different artist. You can see it if you look up the Locust 1V on the MUL.

So, no MWO designs (and no HBS either!), despite the fact that a few units do look very similar.

I think he's talking about the ac/2 carrier and it's variant, the AC/2 Carrier (LB-X) http://www.sarna.net/wiki/AC/2_Carrier#Variants

I'm not sure art for either exists. 

Disclaimer - I'm voting for it/them too.

I think IWM sculpts are required to be based off of existing art aren't they? There is clearly wiggle room for variants, but I don't know if they could interpolate a whole new chassis.

I would love to see some new aerofighters (i can't remember the last time we got a new mech scale fighter) and 3145 BAs!!! My 2 picks are:

Wusun omnifighter
Grey Death Infiltrator BA
"Warriors, not war machines, are the backbone of the Hell's Horses. While others worship the BattleMech as the ultimate weapon, the men and women of this Clan see even this awesome piece of technology as the tool it is. We have held to this philosophy since the days of our first Khan, who knew that the value of the common soldier far outstripped the brute force of the BattleMech. It is one reason our Clan possesses fewer mechs than most, and has led many to underestimate our fierceness and courage. Our survival against all challengers when others have fallen proves the folly of such arrogance, and testifies to the wisdom of our founders."

Thanks for the clarification.  I hadn't fully researched the Lu and Gun to properly source them.  All I could remember was it was the same artist.
