If you are asking about variants for commando and Thunderbolt there will be some in the future. We have had some delays. More to come.

This is the first time I've looked at the Tundra Wolf and thought, "Man I need one of those mechs."  I always thought it was one of the dumbest looking mechs.  This is a great improvement.

Griffin - no updates
Catapult - Yes, will be release as complete mini in upcoming December 2020 distro release. Due to other items being delayed we had to go to plan B for December 2020 release of items that were at IWM. I will post full list tonight after work. When this catapult is added to IWM store for sale, the arm sprue will also be added. For those who just want the arms.

Sorry about that, the arms have been in process for awhile. Due to other items being behind we used them to fill out the last release for Winter 2020 release. The arms will be available to purchase after the mech is posted to IWM store.

I would back those as well and along with his Legionnaire too!

Having talked to him about it he is happy to have them done (and has a few touchups he wants to do on the Warwolf) but has had little traction with IWM/CGL getting them done. He has the files done and ready to go though too!

If I'd have to guess, I'd say that the "easiest" Commando variants would be the 1D and 3A : in both cases,
the 2D torso can be kept, only 3 new arms (left and right for 1D, right only for 3A) would be required.

While I wouldn't mind a resculpt of the Warwolf or Tundra Wolf, I'd really prefer to see resculpts of the Vulture Mk IV and Mad Cat Mk IV that fix the freaking arms and legs so they can stay attached to the torso without popping off at the slightest pressure first.

The arm and leg issue can at least be fixed with pinning, but sadly the Vulture Mk IV is too ugly for my modding skills to fix.....

In plastic/resin/you-won't-believe-it's-not-Bones?

But really, Speck, contact points are a major BT failing in a number of metal sculpts. If you can't cast them, it's one thing. If you need to make the contact points tiny and unpinnable because of the art, then don't insist on multi-part limbs.

Body is the same, a cover was created for the head where the PPC went. Originally the arms were created to just be a OP part. But with other delays we decided to release them with the body and legs.

assembled the most recent offerings (dominator, thud, commando)

dominator has the seven piece lower body setup (feet - lower legs - upper legs - hip joint). went together without much complaint. felt a bit excessive but stuck together quickly

thud was easy - 8 pieces, no surprises. lower body could have probably been one piece.

commando was five pieces. left leg is definitely the "plant" leg

the BFFL was a surprise, yeah

It was such a surprise that I am now considering picking it as part of OpFor for Anton's Revolt Campaign. Although I am not sure which battles it was part of.

It was just more along the lines of a earlier RecGuide Wolf mech, but like I said I do not have that RecGuide so I could be off on details.

Can't wait to get my hands on a chunky piece of metal (the "Buffalo") and I'm excited to see how crisp the Typhoon looks.  IWM has been hitting it out of the park with their more recent aerospace fighter minis.  I wish IWM would get first go on resculpting and selling new minis of the original ASFs... but I digress.

That one kind of got stuck in limbo for awhile. It is in line for production molds, but mold room is behind due to Contract Casting customers and mold makers being out.

Sweet.

Did the Hierofalcon miss the cutoff from the fan funding? Iirc it was Prime A and B there?

They are being done.

Are the new mechs going to be in scale with the kickstarter ones?

I know that they are using the same files for the Kickstarter mechs but how are the new mechs such as the Hierofalcon being designed?  Are they being sculpted the same way?  Will the Minsk and War Crow be of comparable size the new Kickstarter Heavy and Assault Mechs?
