The probability of seeing PGI's Marauder from MWO is not high. PGI does not sell miniatures, merchandise and such things. I don't think that PGI even has the licence for it.

However, there is a very high probability that relatively soon you will be able to buy the CGL's new Marauder miniature, i.e. this one:

Those do look pretty cool, I'll admit.

But I have NO experience with 3d modeling or anything...but I might know someone who is. Anyone out in the wild, wild internet have any experience or suggestions?



If you are interested in learning a 3D modelling program, I would suggest Blender. It can be tricky to set up to your preferences, but it has two benefits:

- Tutorials can be found on YouTube.

- It's FREE! You need only download it from their site.

This should be against CoC.

On topic this would be a cool idea.

I definitely like to see miniatures for MWO Mechs. Some of you may not like the idea, but I also wish that they are pre-painted like the X-wing miniature game. When you are busy and have real-life commitments, high quality and well-designed pre-painted Mech minis are a godsend. Without worrying about paints, brushes and preparation time, lots of people can skip that painting obstacle and jump straight into the game.

You do know there is a battletech mini's game. It doubt its still in production, but I bet you can still find booster boxes.


you're thinking MWDA, a crappy CMG, they'd be better off playing BATTLETECH. which IS a minis game.

That would be awesome as well though I love custom painted versions so I would probably paint them my self but I would love to see all the new mechs as minis even if I would have to do a repaint keep to the classic or the new format Alpha Strike I'm trying my had at the making the mechs into files i can use to make miniatures.

The theory is because the other 3 are chicken walkers where as the summoner is a biped walker. It looks off from a tonnage perspective but i think one could argue logically that a straight legged mech would stand taller
