Crusader 8L
« on: 29 September 2018, 16:19:37 »
I understand that the Crusader 8L mini was sold this summer at conventions.  Do we have any pics of it yet?  I'm putting together an order from IWM and considering whether or not to wait until it becomes available.

Here’s one:



I bought one and have it built, but it isn’t painted so it wouldn’t show much more than that one.

The hands are attached to the wrists as one piece, which makes it instantly better than the 5K.  I like the shape of the head better, too.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.

Nice.  And it will put my order just over the threshold for free shipping, too.

I love it!
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.
     
A.E. Housman

This will now be a Distro release, it was upgraded after all the interest in the mini. We decided to get it in wider release, so it is part of 1st quarter 2018 release.

I just noticed that was changed on the release schedule.

Since I'm not planning to wait on my order until March or later, I guess I'll have to figure out some other figure to get now.
