I'm not bothered all that much. Kickstarter delays aren't unusual, they're the norm. I don't think I've ever had a KS arrive on time, outside of Christopher West's amazing battle maps.

So impatient waiting for the KS to deliver I bought a 3d printer and started making mechs from MWO.





Anyone else doing crazy things while they wait?

What kind of printer and methodology did you take? The Awesome in my pic is the "Heffay" method, Marauder is someone else's pose from the internets. I like doing the mechs myself but it gives me non-manifold psychosis

Printer is Photon, the mechs I have just downloaded wherever I could find 'em already as stl so I did not really have to mess with getting them ready to print. I did chop them up in Meshmixer and repose some, changed proportions on some that I did not like. Also added circular depressions to fit magnets at the "waist" so that torso twist can be done (I print the legs and torso as separate pieces in most all cases)

If you want battletech to make a come back, time to update every mech to use the new designes put forth by the PC games. Because a bunch of 80s reject robots, no matter how they might have looked to your teenage self, doesn't cut it these days.


New KS designs from CG are dope.

Before the KS ironwind metals did resculpt many of the original unseen designs from the 80s and they look quite good.

It did take them 3 tries to get the blood asp right though.

I still haven't built my V2 Blood Asp. That model is a fething nightmare to put together. I've done it twice, and it just wouldn't stay, even with the power of green stuff to help me.

Must get the proper newer one that actually matches the artwork.

Yeah the first one had itty bitty little legs compared to the body, the second had the spindly little arms/legs and then they got it right on the 3rd try. i finally bought one when the 3rd version got released.

I received my order of Fighting Piranha Graphics today. They look good - hopefully they'll look as good on my demo lances for Alpha Strike I got from Death From Above wargaming.

And an update: One Death Commando done as a test. Decal turned out well, I think.

How far the Death Commandos have fallen to be using an Eagle...

It does look good, though.

Thanks! I'll have pics of the rest of the Lance today once the varnish finishes drying. Then I'll work on their Davion opponents.

Update: Lance is finished.

Huron Warrior and a Lao Hu. Interesting.

I can't remember that the one next to the Lao Hu is though... ?
