Isn't that what the UK/EU is doing, but the US is doing largest first?



In theory, yes... but my delivery of 370 dollars of mechs was filled before my friend's 1700 dollar order- he's still waiting. The difference is that he went in for the collectible stuff, like the books and things. It appears these were not distributed correctly to the packing hubs, which is holding up larger orders in some cases. So pure mech orders like mine are being filled while they wait for unspecified product to arrive at the hubs in the US.

That's wonderful news, Annihilator is one of my favs and I was planning on doing some Dragoons!

Dragoons were more noted for bringing the Annihilator, Shogun, Imp, Marauder 2, Hoplite, Fleas, Firefly, Hornet, and Falcon to the Inner Sphere as well as helping to develop the Wolfhound with the Kell Hounds. That doesn't consider what they developed by the Jihad, either.

Are you a Wolf, a Sheep, or a Hound?

So, here's hoping for the Annihilator, Imp, Falcon and... Hornet. Two very big 'Mechs, and two very small 'Mechs.

Assassin doesn't have a Wolf Dragoons vibe. An IS mech mostly used by the FWL, and almost extinct by the time the Dragoons arrived.

Annihilator (concept sketch + 3D render) and Hoplite (concept sketch by Bishop Steiner) have been shown on
Anthony Scroggins' Patreon recently..

EDIT : clarification by CGL (Adrian Gideon) :

There is a Wolf’s Dragoons themed ForcePack (not box). The Annihilator is in it. It’s not (at all!) indicative of themed or faction ForcePacks. Nor is it connected to any forthcoming Kickstarter. Can’t say anything else at this time.

Got my wave2 yesterday somehow, despite the national holiday. It was just mechs and the Shiloh (no collector's stuff for me), and they're amazing. Salvage mechs are all from wave1 clan stuff, got another Loki, a Thor, 2 Vulture's, a Black Hawk and in my last box I finallly got another Mad Cat, so pretty happy with the salvage packs I got.

Quality is on par with Wave1, everything has some minor mold lines that need cleaning but the detail is excellent for PVC plastics and even the longer thinner weapons were pretty straight, I think only a couple will need the hot water trick out of the 50 mechs I received

My wave 2 arrived today. I managed to open every lance/star pack I got and give each make a once over, I'd argue the quality is even better than Wave 1, or at least it seems like there are a lot fewer noticeable mold lines, no wonky posing that stood out, and - like yourself - just a handful that could use the hot water treatment (especially my poor Blackjack!).

The only production defect I found was on the Warhawk; the top of the 'Mech appears to sink inwards a tad.

All in all, good stuff, and even more exciting with the news of the Wolf's Dragoons box coming - means they're pushing forward with bringing out new 'Mechs post Kickstarter.

I wonder if they're going to be KS China plastics or Creative Juggernaut US plastics...

I would guess they are going to be KS China Plastics as they are following the ForcePack format vs the individual model release format that Creative Juggernaut is using.

A friend of mine got his order today; Star Colonel pledge. It all appears to be there except the neoprene Strana Mechty battlemap. Anyone know more? Was this cancelled or is it just missing?

They were not ‘cancelled’. The map and the paper stuff was removed from pledges and a thirty dollar credit given. This was because they were a particularly significant contributor to overall postage expense, and people were sobbing over it. You could use your credit to add that stuff back in, or spend it on other stuff. But it was removed from all qualifying pledges; you had to add it back in via the pledge manager. If you didn’t spend it at all, or thought you just got a bonus and spent it on something else without checking, no map for you.

Very well, thank you.

I have not got my pledge yet, but included the five map set, this includes Strana Mechty. I actually wanted it for neoprene map sets A-D

Depending on how I feel at the time I might give the map to him. I dont think it will matter, he bought a crapton of Runescape a few years back and uses that

My salvage was: 2x Hellbringer / Loki, 2x Mongrel / Grendel, Stormcrow / Ryoken & Timber Wolf / Mad Cat (plus Morgan Kell & Natasha Kerensky).

There seems to be a lot of duplicates this time round...

I don’t feel like searching the thread, but I think I mentioned here in my wave one shipment, I got 3 Mad Dog/Vultures out of eight or so boxes. So the randomness wasn’t so hot before, either.

I only got one Gargoyle, but was given three Mist Lynx, Grendels and Shadow Cats (each) to compensate.
I also got two Timber Wolves and Dire Wolves. So I reboxed one of all five and will gift them to a new start in my local gaming community.
