This is the Funding thread for New Production Molds for 25mm Mechwarrior Minis and it needs $1000.00 to be Funded.

Current Funding amount is $1000.00 and is funded.

The funding will be going towards 15 new production molds for the 40 OOP 25mm Mechwarrior minis, we would be doing 3 molds per faction group. So two molds will have 3 models in and the third will have 2 models in. If this is successfully funded these minis will be available individually through IWM online store as a Online Exclusive similar to the old Battletroop figures that are still available.

Please see the quote from Cazaril post with image of all 40 of the figures and grouped by faction.

Like many others, I regret not having purchased the 25mm Mechwarrior figures in the past. For those who don't even know what they all look like, here are some pictures (sorry they aren't the greatest, but they aren't completely horrible either  ;) ). I believe it is complete (minus the Elemental which I believe is still for sale).. They come from Ral Partha's 1992 catalog.

Anyway, here they are.



20-900 => Steiner MechWarriors (3)
20-901 => Steiner Ground Troopers (3)
20-902 => Steiner Aerospace Pilot
20-903 => Steiner Security Guard



20-920 => Kurita MechWarriors (3)
20-921 => Kurita Ground Troopers (3)
20-922 => Special Forces - Kurita Death Squad Assassin
20-923 => Kurita Mech Tech



20-940 => Liao MechWarriors (3)
20-941 => Liao Troopers (3)
20-942 => Liao Death Commando
20-943 => Liao Aerospace Pilot



20-960 => Marik MechWarriors (3)
20-961 => Marik Ground Troopers (3)
20-962 => Marik Security Guard
20-963 => Marik Dropship Crewman



20-980 => Davion MechWarriors (3)
20-981 => Davion Ground Troopers (3)
20-982 => Davion Aerospace Pilot
20-983 => Davion Jumpship Crewman

And while I'm at it... What is the latest on seeing them come back?

Kickin'!

Speck, what are the chances of seeing some of the stuff from the BattleTroops boxset as well?

I am willing to put forward $200 for this.

Oh! I didn't know they were already archived. Well, guess I know what I am getting with my order of hex bases. Thanks, Speck!

What a joke.
It's 2019. Use the money to produce miniatures who could challenge other modern miniature ranges.

But uhhh everything for the 10-100 40-50+ year old fanboys from back in the days.

Show it to the Millenials and they will laugh hard and are right to do so.

There have been many people asking to have these 40 figures available again. That is way this is happening. If you do not want them that is fine. New Mechwarrior figures would be great to do, but humanoid figure are still expensive to sculpt. We might get 1 or 3 for the cost of having new molds for these 40 OOP figures done.

A joke to you. As a millennial, at (almost) 34 years old, I disagree with your statement. I own a Kurita BattleTroops set and they look great.

I might toss in some money at this.

So we need another 300, right?

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.

Those who have no concept of production cost or monetary value would do so. Those of us who do are smiling at the opportunity presented to us.

I'm in for $100.

So far all the millennial Battletech fans I know are cool with them.  And seems like those here are as well. :thumbsup:

Speck, thank you for getting this done! :clap:

Hey Speck, what do you think the timeline would be for these to be out in production? It would be neat to see them in time for GenCon even though I wouldn't be going.
