Not too sure what to think about the 2mil update.  Cardboard standees are an awesome addition, but the UrbanMech, and UrbanMech plush... 

 

I don't quite know what to think of the meme becoming real. 

 

I don’t really care about a new Urbanmech sculpt, or getting a “free” urbanmech miniature, but I’m not gonna lie: I totally want a plush urbanmech.

 

not sure this thing quite has the legs for $2m, but we’ll soon see.

Yeah I think that's kind of backwards too. By Star Colonel you have 50+ minis. Standees aren't as necessary. Now at the low levels where you'll only get a few mechs standees would be a great thing to have. 90% of our playing was done with paper standees way back when.

Yeah, I'm rather surprised by such a move.  I can understand the $50 tier not getting it, but if they had cardboard standees for the $95 pledge it would add a LOT more value, and also coax those on the fence to bump up (if they're able to).  Additionally, it would allow them to field different units, and be able to try various things out before having to commit to more miniatures, which can get those on the fence to give it a try like it, then be able to justify purchasing the mechs afterwards.

For painting 10m tall armored vehicles, I've always thought the place to look for inspiration is naval camo rather than armored-vehicle camo. You're not going to make it disappear or even make it hard to see, so the best you can do is add visual confusion.

 

The best thing about this (for me), is that you can do some remarkably striking things with your paint schemes -- dazzle, splinter, apparent changes in size, horizon lines, ....

Dazzle paint jobs are definitely tempting, especially so in a world with multiple types of scanners.  Sure, Mk 1 eyeballs are still used, but there is something about making a 10m tall thing look very different..

The plush is... I dunno, it would all depend on the size.  If it's like a foot, I might be up for it.  Three feet? Probably.  But I don't have a lot of love for the UrbanMech, even if it is versatile and even deadly in some scenarios. 

 

Now, if it were a Hunchback, I'd be foaming at the mouth for one...

A quick note about force building: If you want to actually play two forces against each other in a fair-ish game, you'll want to make sure they're balanced.  BV is the standard metric for normal tabletop play.  PV is the metric for Alpha Strike.  The Master Unit List has the BV and PV values for all (or almost all) 'Mechs that have record sheets.

Please tell me they still make that... Because if so, I suspect I'll wind up with one in my cart when I put an order in with them (alongside a few tanks...)

I have the same mini.

He is... a very ironwind mini, and could use an update. He would also be far more useful to me if he were not metal.

CGL just posted a new update.  Quartermaster Logistics will be handling fulfillment for this KS.

 

This means we will probably not see the same sort of fulfillment problems that have plagued (and continue to plague) the Shadowrun Sprawl Ops KS.  (I know I've had other KSs that fulfilled using Quartermaster Logistics but I don't remember which ones.)

This is very good to hear. It will probably convince a lot of folks to sign up with this now.

 

And the 28mm Elemental shows who my Command Star of Elementals is when playing.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
