Iron Wind Metals Gen Con 2019 - Booth 2543
« on: 22 July 2019, 23:22:16 »
See the Annoucement for details. More pictures have been posted, still have a few more to get done today.

The Jupiter 3 and Thunderbolt IIC 2 went through some extra reworking during they're conversions to the variants. Both of them look stellar and Joel did an amazing job on them. I have posted IWM website the Record Sheets for Thunderbolt IIC 2 and Thor II E (in print version of 3145/3150 TRO).

More to come as I get info on some con specials. The special releases at gencon for Battletech 35th Anniversary have been posted. Both are in small clams with a Anniversary style package card based off the two early Battletech blister cards. They will be in limited supply at the show so 1 of each per purchase and we will have quantities set aside for Thursday and Friday. The remaining supply available Saturday and Sunday. Both are limited to show only release with this being the first and only time the Leviathan Heavy transport will be for sale.

Update: Uploaded new BT Alpha Lists

Note: Flatbed Truck, Each blister comes with two trucks and cargo to put on them. Parts to make either of the following variants, Mortar, SRM and rocket launchers. Pictures someone soon.

The mechwarrior miniatures when hit with the ink look really nice. Can't wait for them to go up on the webstore.

"Shen Long Battle Armor (3) - 3 wpn options"- So does this mean 3 suits and 3 options or 1 suit and 3 options?  Any chance you will have any additional photos up before Gencon?  I'm interest to know how much the flatbed trucks are going to cost me to make my Flat Bed Mafia a reality.

One SKU will have three bodies and a weapon sprue.  We did three turret options, 4 Gun for Gauss/MG, Missile for MMR/SRM, and 2 Gun for Flamer/Grenade.

I should have price for flatbed trucks later this week once I get samples. A SKU will have two trucks, cargo containers, and two weapon options.

That they did. I color coded the bases to help ID what faction blister they are in. Will be bringing some from each back for display at gencon. Not bringing all of them.

Will the miniatures in the lance be available after GenCon?

As of now they are at convention, since they are handle by who runs the convention booths for IWM. If they do well, I might be able to convince Mike to have some made for sale on the webstore.

More to come on this after gencon.

It is pretty dang awesome in person. Joel did a fabulous job on it. There was a lot of brain storming for this conversion (really a resculpt) before Joel started work on it.

I don't know if there's anything you can do about it, but those articles aren't phone-friendly on my end. I can't zoom out or scroll sideways, so I can't view half of the images. (android + chrome)  I don't get on a PC too often these days.

I had the same problem. You can have your phone's browser load the desktop site, which will then allow you to zoom in or out and scroll around.

Frontend templating is already set to be responsive for desktop, tablet and phone. Loading fine here and can zoom in and out. Not sure what the issue is.

Plain text scales fine (though no zoom). The table and pictures just don't want to play along.

Edit: As abou stated, desktop mode works.

Try tapping and holding on the picture.  In most browsers you'll get a "view image" option.   The image file is larger than what's shown on the page.

Desktop users can right click for the "view Image" option.

Ah, right. Done that too, brain's funny, substituting words when it can't find the right one. There was a tweet where a physics professor said he said "light crumb" instead of photon....

Anyway. Gyrfalcon oversized? Damn :/ Just how badly?

.
The new one just came out, so i doubt there size comparison so far.
There only a picture of the mini on their website. Which in way hides what long-ness of the cannon/arms


Since Camospecs is DOWN.  There no good picture to show you.

Mine Gyrfalcon buried in mini-cases.  Trust me, the guns are huge on it, mini like size of a heavy mech in comparison to most of the minis.  Jupiter miniature i received would be classified as "Extra-Thick" by Achoo and slightly mis-matched.  Parts don't quite fit, but i made them fit anyways that hard way.

I can't say much for the current back-end functionality of the site, but many images can still be viewed.


The new variant also has the wings attached to the backpack piece for greater stability there.

Hey Speck, will the release schedule be updated after Gen Con?

And thanks for the photos.  Everything looks great.  Kudos to all the sculptors! 8) :thumbsup:

Yes.

I can't say much for the current back-end functionality of the site, but many images can still be viewed.


The new variant also has the wings attached to the backpack piece for greater stability there.
Thanks.   If you type in Camospecs.com -  it don't load.  I did web check see if the site was up or down, it says it down.



I wish there was another mech you can place next to the mini. I don't have access to mine right now.

Really curious on that one.  I remember being very disappointed in the original.

Imagine if the Atlas or Kodiak or (insert your favorite 100-tonner here) were made in only two sculpts. One looked amazing, but never made widely available, and produced only in extremely limited numbers. The other was widely available, but an extremely disappointing sculpt, with very soft details and ill-fitting parts.

Just a FYI to those at the show. We got some restocks in on clear exterminator and leviathan so the limited per purchase has been removed. Factory did a great job getting more done for the show last two days.

I am spending way too much time trying to figure out how I want to arrange the cargo on my SRM trucks.  Will it be possible to order those bits individually later?

Wish I'd paid more attention to how many trucks were in the blister.  The 2 blisters I picked up aren't going to be enough so hopefully my friend who's doing the full weekend(lucky *******) will be able to snag me too more.   


Is the rocket variant's record sheet Operation Klondike only, or has it showed up somewhere else too?

Sold out of the flatbed trucks today.

I will find out about the bit after the show.

The trucks are pretty sweet.  I'm still trying to figure out what to have them carry.  Spent a good amount of time tearing through my bits looking for potential cargo.  The ATM9 from the Balius works fantastic as a large crate if you shave off the little dots on the side. 

I almost picked up a Leviathan because I'm a sucker for rare stuff, but it's cost was too much for something I'd likely just leave in a booster.  Better it end up in the hands of someone who will paint it and get it in a game.

If the molds are still there, why aren't they regularly available?  Speck explained that the clear Exterminator was because it's a serious pain in the ass to produce(I believe it), but I forgot to ask about the Leviathan.

Because it was produced as an exclusive. Specifically, prize support for 2003's FanPro Commando World Wide Event, Trial of Retribution.

Check out the bins that come with the j27 ammo hauler. They have missiles and a cargo container that may fit.

If someone buys one, could you take a 3/4 side photo, like the viewing angle from the line art from TRO: Prototypes?

I love that line art, but this pic doesn't give a good impression of the torso relative to the hips, which is where I greatly dislike the original Thud IIc sculpt.
