That is pretty much spot on.

The question is scale? I have never heard of that model or company before. Any other info available?

It occurs to me, that someone who was talented and dedicated, might combine some of the elements from the WK Mage Knight "Steam Tinker" mini:



with those of the Mechs. shown above to come up with some neat stuff. The "Steam Tinker" is a dwarf, in a decidedly Steam-punk influenced carriage, BUT, with a little tweaking, he could be made to appear larger by cutting off the toes of his boots. This would give the illusion of legs going down into the feet of the Mech.

Just a thought, and one I intend to attempt myself (Someday). I purchased a couple of the "Rookie" ranked version specifically for that purpose, and because they are VERY cheap.

Cool, I’d like to see what you’ve come up with. Post some pics and I’ll change the title of this thread to “Converting Mechwarriors for use with 25-28mm”.

Also anyone else is welcome to do so as well.

Yes, the conversions here are not exactly the P-5000. The photo below from Aliens shows more of an exposed body. I’d like to think these coverted suits completely encapsulate the body with life-support for working in hostile environments.



The “little pink brains” idea would be a riot! Easily one could whip up a few brains sculpting them from Green Stuff or the like. A squad of six or so with heavy armament would be cool.

In scale...and very, very, very uncomfortable.

"Join the Cargo Crew...see the Universe... @#$@ pamphlet!"

Nice idea, though -- wish I hadn't sold off all my MW stuff when SWM showed up....
