Hey, feedback is good! We're getting the sculpts adjusted and going for a better pose. Some adjustments to the Ferret body and legs and the Cheetah legs especially. Thanks everyone!
I'd be very cool with a delay on getting my stuff if it means the models look better when I show them at stores for demos and on Gamers on Games in future batreps.
It's really great that DP9 is listening to their fans and responding professionally and promptly.
I, too, gave these a funny look. I'm glad that they're being revisited, they're quite the departure from previous iterations- especially those white cat shoulders.
Sorry to be a jerk and having started something...I know Dream Pod 9 is VERY aware of how much I love Heavy Gear (hell, we post it on Gamers on Games A LOT!) but I just want it to be as awesome as possible...and not a debacle like a certain other Kickstarted-Miniatures game.
Thank you for the feedback everyone, we'll have our modeler take another crack at them, and post some updated images once he's done.
Are these in progress shots or final poses? That Cheetah is REALLY disappointing.
These look very little like previous versions of both the Cheetah and the Ferret. Proportions are wrong in many areas, especially the Cheetah's upper legs and feet, and the Ferret's torso and hip. Please head back to the drawing board on these ones!
so... are ALL the model types gonna be stiff arming it across the board? I'm unclear why the use of plastics prevents having some bent arms or open hands to hold a weapon barrel...
I have to say I agree with David Simpson, could we maybe get them posed with one leg forward like it's walking or something? I prefer my minis to have both legs on the base, but they look off just standing like that.
The ferret looks fine, a bit like a battletech mech, but okay.
The cheetah and variants look just weird and a bit wrong though.
Ferret looks great, but the Cheetah and Whitecat look so static :-( Can the poses be a little more kinetic or at least some "power stances"?
Love the previews thanks... The side of the torso of the ferret seems a little bear especially with all the other details. Some go fast strips maybe ...
