Solaris VII: Daedalus Mech?
« on: 06 May 2021, 10:23:02 »
Has the Daedalus model ever been released? I noted that the other 11 mechs from the Solaris VII boxed set had been but couldn't seem to find the Daedalus.

I know that there is a misspelling with Daedelus occuring in some places (thank you sarna.net for that tidbit of strange lore.)

No official IWM release.  Which is a bit of an oddity considering a number of newer Solaris VII mechs got minis before the Daedalus did, and the original mechs all had to get the Phoenix treatment as well

Four did not

Porcupine

All ended up getting new* art in Caveat Emptor

*renders made but never previously used

3D sculpts for all four (and then some) have been done but don’t seem popular enough to get fan funded.

Had I the cash, the Porcupine would already be funded... :'(
