Greetings all. I have some of the old Ironwind Metals miniatures that I am wanting to repair. These are the old Unseen mechs from 15- 20 years ago.. All of them were in a house fire and have lost different bits. I have Warhammers and Rifleman mechs that lost their arms, and Marauders that lost their legs and feet/ bases. Is there any place I can find them, or someone who can print them?

Ironwind Metals is still around. Contact their customer service team, they will sell parts.

I see that the Rifleman is still in production, as are the warhammer and marauder. Maybe not the exact sculpts you have, but close enough to fit.

Do a search for Battletech warhammer miniatures. There are several listings on Etsy for the Warhammer, Marauder (unseen), not the MWO/Catalyst versions, etc. Doesnt hit the pocket book as hard as Ebay ones :)

Actually, I have already contacted Iron Wind. These have been OOP for over 10 years. Molds have been gone for 30 years. Looking at the Scrapyard parts, the Rifleman and Warhammer parts aren't even close to working with the old minis. I might be able to make the Marauder parts work, but I have to buy 2 individual feet, a Rt arm/leg sprue, a left arm/leg sprue, and if I want to replace the AC on top, a gun sprue. The legs will have to have the ball joints filed flat to fit the torso. Or, I can try to dimple the hips to take the joints. Feet look straight forward.

Ah, I've got quite a few that old, thankfully with most of their parts. The last 1-missing-arm rifleman I had got turned into a battle-damaged model by puttying up a shoulder joint with wires hanging out. Posted Image

But yeah, I understand, you're doing everything you can to keep them from being parts for a wreck model.

Besides Etsy, Ebay has a few unseen with the Marauder and a few others mechs are getting really expensive.

Or to potentially replace with 3D printed unseen mechs.
