I think you should be OK, this section of the board could definitely do with more people posting on it!

Nice looking model (and I presume a plastic kit?) will be interesting to see what kind of price it comes in at!

It looks great. Speculation in the other thread is that it'll be about the same as the, erm.. Thudd Gun thing.

If that's the case, I'll be picking up several for my Iron Warriors. That thing just screams "siege dreadnought"

I love this thing, and it's probably one of the best, if not the best, miniatures Mantic has produced, IMO. I'm hoping they crank out some Marauder and Veer-myn vehicles soon.

I'm wondering about the size, because if it's around the size of the Black Reach Dreadnought, and costs around the same as the Mantic siege gun, I may pick up a few as 15mm mecha. It's certainly one of the better looking kits Mantic has put out.

That's definitely a 60mm base it's on, to give you an idea of scale. No doubt we'll get some scale pics closer to the time.

I hope so as well.
I honestly think they wil eventually raise prices but it will not be as bad as some other companies.
Their whole selling point has been that their miniatures are cheaper and can be used for ANY table top game system.

I dont understand the raptor costs more than the Iron Ancestor.

^ The basic Raptor costs the same as the Iron Ancestor.

Only the raptors with extra resin upgrade pieces like the quad chassis or the enclosed transport section cost more.

Also, new pics of the iron ancestor from Remy's blog including this scale picture:



..and this shot of all the parts in the kit:



Note the optional Jump Pack piece. This thing can fly!
