If the head wasn't molded to the torso it would have been entirely possible with the just released one.   I have a picture of a modified one in the classic pose, that required me cutting enough metal from the body to head to allow me to twist it.  Its in the tips and hints section.

I think a bunch of us are hoping for the running pose in the official art.  Maybe some day.

Because I do not need as many Wasps (or was it Stingers?) as I do Marauders.  I already noticed I had a real lack of IS & Clan light mechs compared to meds & heavies since TT does not use recon typically and if I DO need that specialist I typically take a vehicle.  But the Marauder & Warhammer packs come with Wasp, Stingers and Valkyries IIRC which are not designs I really need that many of for play.  Use them more in MM than I ever have on table top.
The KS Lance packs:
Command Lance: ARC, MAD, STG and Valk.
Battle Lance: PHK, RFL, WHM and WSP.
To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO  room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object. 3D Prints are just 3D Repros.

Something to bear in Mind. Defending the BT IP is Frowned upon here.

Yeah, I am very interested in knowing what is coming down the pipeline now that the First Wave has shipped.  Wasps/Stingers/Valkyries/Phoenix Hawks would be awesome!
 
Any news Speck?

Having the KS Phoenix Hawk in front of me (it's a great sculpt), I very much hope that we'll get a metal
IWM version in the near future. A 3D/3K (twin large lasers) variant would be icing on the cake...

@ Speck : any idea when the metal Commando & Thunderbolt will show up on the IWM store ?

At this point no, in the future anything is possible.

I like those odds!

Thinking of my Kickstarter forces that will arrive in wave one:  I'd like to supplement some IWM Valkyries, Phoenix Hawks, and Wasps in there.  I know the Valkyrie was released during a convention wasn't it?  Is there any news on the Reseen being available?

These are the ones that I want too along with the Stinger.

Unless they destroyed the wasp and Valkyrie molds it’s a matter of deciding to make them again

Pretty sure those will be released in metal after the plastic release.

IIRC it was mentioned before that the sculpts have changed slightly since the IWM ones.

Yes...you are correct. The back of the Valkyrie was redesigned. The Wasp, I'd have to compare them, but if I recall...something was also changed on it.

So . . . can we get a Hammerhead sculpt soon-ish?  Or would putting it on the Fan-Funding track get one produced sooner?

Any plans to do the Wolverine from AGOAC?

The griffin, locust etc are fantastic in metal

Speck, with the KS Wave Two re-opening, can we get any sort of projection for the next year's quarterly mini schedule?  Might determine if I buy more lance packs or wait to get a metal Marauder.

No exact details, but finishing the first box set mechs plus variants and mechs from RecGuides. Possibly TRO Golden Century mechs.

Having the KS Phoenix Hawk in front of me (it's a great sculpt), I very much hope that we'll get a metal
IWM version in the near future. A 3D/3K (twin large lasers) variant would be icing on the cake...

@ Speck : any idea when the metal Commando & Thunderbolt will show up on the IWM store ?



As of now I have no info about timeline for metal version of the KS mechs, when I have something to share I will.

The recent release should be up in a few weeks or sooner.

Very soon, I will have an announcement about it in the coming days.

Yes, it will be.

So you are saying GoAC box, RecGuides and TRO-GC with KS minis down the road?

When I have information about metal versions of the KS mini I will share it, but as of now I have nothing to report.

No prob!  Its a answer at least no matter how much I might wish to see metal Marauder and Warhammer before summer it is an answer which allows for planning on Wave 2 of the KS.

I hope IWM uses the Marauder Grayson sculpt instead of the standard.  The Grayson sculpt has proportions that are much more pleasing to the eye.

Huh?  They are literally the same computer generated file, just in different poses.  I have both and did not look closely but I did not notice any different.

This thread has reached the limit of it's expected longevity and will soon need to be decommissioned and sent off into the sun.  We will need a name for it's offspring.  Might I suggest:
"What's in the Pipeline 2: the Wrath of Speck"
or
"What's in the Pipeline 2: Speck and the Battlemech Factory"
