[Kickstarter] 28mm Power Armour & Mecha
« on: September 28, 2022, 03:45:00 PM »
Impact Miniatures is running a KS for nice looking 28mm power suits.  I've backed a number of their projects over the years and love all their work:

The hardsuit designs are great, good to see someone finally getting those into production.
Classy move by Impact to try and put right the crap left behind by Reidy/Whitehouse et al.

Thank you.

Tony left a lot of damage.  Hope to do the best I can to fix what I'm able.

I remember watching that train wreck happen >:(

Sadly, given shipping costs, UK exchange rate and the lack of a resin printer I shall be watching this from the sidelines only :(

Best of luck with these, as I did like the design at the time, and it still holds up well

There are plenty of printing services out there.  Depending on the price per model for the hard suits that would be a viable option.

Note that one of the pledge levels is for former backers of the Defiance Games Kickstarter who never received their items. Impact Miniature's Kickstarter is offering a discount on hardsuit packs for people who can prove they were a part of that failed Kickstarter.

They're absolutely cool not-Elementals.

But I worry about the guy with the cigar; how is he going to take that thing out of his mouth? Does the ash fall inside the suit? What happens when he has to button up? lol

I was looking at the picture, and cannot work out how the pilot fits in the "suit".

The pilot's arms may be tucked inside, but I cannot see where the legs go.
