@ LDJessee. Sorry been so engrossed in checking 3d parts this last week forgot about the update, I'll get one done in the next day or two.
Maybe time for an update to the Kickstarter as to the progress made in the last 2 weeks or so?
Small criticism of the MHT; the gun looks like it won't have any gun depression, preventing from going 'hull down', ei, unable to fire from the reverse slope of a hill, an important tactic for armored vehicles.
I've still got $53 left over and i remember a while ago in one of the updates you guys saying that we could buy some of the pewter minis from your online store with leftover credit. Can we do that? Or did I just misunderstand the update.
I love /every/ week's update! You guys have got some of the best and most consistent communication I've ever seen on a Kickstarter in the post-funding development phase. You guys should be as proud as you are committed to making good on all of your promises. Great work!
Liking the dynamic Jager, not so much the other. The Mamba is also coming along but not quite there yet. Good work with the railgun switch!
@scarlet: maybe they had to beef it up for plastic? Just look at the robotech minis, and smaller doesn't always mean better when it comes to fiddly bits :)
Oh, but on the Jager maybe try to make the knife a little thinner? Big clunky knives probably worked best with pewter where you couldn't make them too thin without molding issues, but with plastic hopefully you could make something a little more realistic?
Glad you changed the railgun, it looks way better. And the Black Mamba is shaping up, though I'm not so sure about the upper legs.
The Jager is awesome.
Good to see the paratrooper rifle this early. I still hold out hope that you'll find space for the paratrooper reinforcement parts for the PT version of the Jager/Hunter/Cheetah/Iguana, but at least having the PT rifle makes for reasonably convincing conversions of those models without the extra fiddly bits.
Also, the Jager came out looking very good!
Dat Jäger doe! Also nice to see the demo drone too.
Also, it would allow you to have less "straight leg" poses, which IMHO always look worse when they are supposed to be minis in combat.
Jäger looks quite nice, at least from that angle. Mamba... still looks kind of derpy. Would it be feasible to split the hips and fuse each of the split parts with its corresponding leg? That way you would be able to repose it to account for the leg's actual position... and you would end up needing one less part, too, which is always nice (I mean, 10 parts is nice, but every little bit helps).
