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.

Between these Mechwarrior mini packs, the Kickstarter and the upcoming RP rules, my bank account is crying "Uncle" and ruing the day I ever heard of BattleTech... :thumbsup:

The hover skirt in the picture posted today looks like the existing mini. Was that the wrong body in the picture?

Compare the pictures, part under turret on the new variant to the old one.

I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the Jade Falcon lance.  Now I wish I were going to GenCon.

Will the miniatures in the lance be available after GenCon?

How reworked is the Jupiter 3 compared to the original mini?

Figures.  I just finished building the original a couple weeks ago after having it for well over a year.  :P  Looking forward to seeing it.

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.
