i am completely and 100% against 10mm anything from EE.  Especially at the given moment where they have two full lines of mini/rules to put out as well as a good half dozen other projects on the back burner.  10mm has only a limited market share as well as profit turn over, the figs are just not a viable source of income for the time and resource investitures.

Let them get the Chrono/UWZ product lines fully operational a good many more people under their wings and get themselvse more financially secure.  Then maybe consider it.  If you really need the fix ask thom is he can hire someone to adapt the Star Grunt system or a similarly scalable system for this purpose. 

To be fair i would love to see a giga-mek stomping around and one of those big ol Necro-Constructs mowing through trenchlines.  Just not at the expense of the other lines.

Oh Believe me, I was joking. EE has more than enough on its plate in future projects I'm sure much less start a new scale. I don't forsee any 10mm Warzone lest I turn into a master sculptor overnight.*

think battlemechs.

with Mishimen strapped to the front of them as pseudo pilots.

and about a bajillion feet taller.

It was ok, the DL had about the same thing, except scarier and with a necromutant grafted in.

Who was smoking what? Did they realize that all the models for UWZ are METAL? I hope they planned to make the thing outa plastic or resin!

Yes the Gigamek is a machine coming from the Mishima sourcebook for the RPG. I've always wondered what it would look like on a Warzone battlefield ;o)

I imagine it would look like my 3 foot tall 18 month old son with a mishima pilot glued to his bib, jumping up and down on my game table squashing everyone's models.   :o

lol... nice mental images Goldwyrn and Josh. Still chuckling at them. The gigamek is a RPG construct who would not really have a place on a standard battle because its points would be massive.

Oh, o.k. cool! I thought someone had actually pitched it as an idea for the TTG.

Actually I was thinking that you could build a fairly credible necromech out of a Body human model, some green stuff (okay, lots of green stuff) and various spares. 

As for the titan gigamek, it could be just about any size you want it to be (my Mishima source book is 7,000+ miles away so I can't be exact).  I remember they were big, but not necessarily so big that you have to outsource their construction to a resin firm or three then decided there is more money if you do it yourself and revoke their contract making their models that were based your sculpts out of date which you then resculpt at your own resin outfitters that just happens through some liscening loophole to take the name of one of the companies that you previously liscensed to then make similar if not the same type of models and charge five time more for them but big enough that you could probably fit them on a table (maybe 12-18 inches tall). :P

Yes they would fit into the Bauhaus Grizzly category both in points and playablility, and tournament play is nix but for having something cool on your table top to impress your friends they aren't completely outside the realm of possibility.  Plus I'm sure some of you have been eyeing those Gundam models or old Shogun Warriors in your closets gathering dust...
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!
